Sneaky Peek

Hello to you all! It’s blog time and today’s blog is about all about the sneaky peek.  The behind the scenes fun of the magazine shoot I was part of this week for Matrimony magazine.

If you’re a regular reader of the blog you will have known this particular adventure started way back in November last year (read the blog here). I met Wendy, (Matrimony Magazine’s Editor) and Rachel (The magazine’s creative director) on a rainy day at our venue walk around at Brinsop Court  I fell in love with the place. It was the perfect balance of history and romance in one spot. In essence the ideal backdrop for the ideas of the shoot.

There were to be two main ideas. The gothic and fairytale. To help us create these ideas a huge group of people came together, (the list follows), and I really do recommend you check these guys out. But first, have a little look at what we got up to.
