I’m thrilled to see Hattie Ellis’s photos of Sophie Choy wearing my Libelule and Orchidee dresses in this month’s issue of South African Vintage Living Magazine. Have a look at the ‘Here come’s the bride’ feature on page 92. It’s such a beautiful magazine with loads of inspiring fashion features. http://vintagelifestylemag.co.za/the-magazine/

November was a very busy month for photoshoots. I was very lucky to work with the uber-talented photographer Hattie Ellis who has been passionate about photography from a very young age. She is also super creative and made these amazing paper headresses for the shoot which accessorised my kimono inspired wedding dresses perfectly. Our model Sophie Choy looked stunning and was a joy to work with. Her impeccable make-up was done by the brilliant Katy Pheiffer a fashion shoot and wedding make-up specialist. The stylishly neglected Orangery at Blaise Castle, a wedding venue near Bristol provided the perfect setting for an unseasonally exotic photoshoot!
