Behind the Scenes at the Twelve & The Great Hall at Mains Shoot

Jonny Draper did the most superb job of the planning and organisation of this photo shoot, he'd invited a group of young and dynamic photographers and film makers to do a photographic version of a "Jamming Session" at Twelve Restaurant in Thornton and The Great Hall at Mains, completely different but equally splendid wedding venues.
He'd also brought along the completely wonderful and talented Emma Draper Bridal Make Up Artist. Some very exquisite Bridal Gowns by David Fielden, Clare Pettibone and Charlotte Balbier from The White Closet in Didsbury.
There was a selection of modern unique and handmade jewellery designed and created by Amy Rhodes from Coco & Me.
The wonderful and completely on trend Tom Harrington from Silk Wedding Videos filmed everything.
And most importantly of course we'd brought along a collection of brand new bridal designs inspired by our visit to the Orchid Growers in Holland.
I will be presenting you with a set of images taken by each of these very special photographers over the next few weeks, it really is a unique opportunity to see the same subject photographed so alternatively, I felt that it very clearly makes you the viewer have an opinion about each photographers work, so, the brilliant photographers were Stephanie Oakes, Neil Redfern, Hannah Dornford-May, Katy Lunsford, Anurag Sharmar and Jonny Draper.
The models were the very exquisitely beautiful Emily Martin, Amy Rhodes and our daughter Olivia, first up then Emily wearing a spectacular David Fielden gown 4626, the wedding bouquet of Amaryllis, Orchids, Red Neines and tulips is equally as fluid as the gown, long slender and elegant with lots of filigree work in silver.
