It was a very exclusive event at one of the county's top wedding venues, and I along with a number of other exclusive suppliers exhibited, throughout this charming 4 star rated Georgian country house, to visiting couples who were interested in booking the venue, or who had already booked and were coming back to get a little bit more of a feel for it!
For those of you that followed the Nostalgia Shoot Tweet's and Insta's you'll remember that this is the venue where we shot the collection, with the ever-so- talented Photographers Ashley Hampson and Andrea Pennington
As a little reminder here is one of my fave pics from the shoot - - from setting the scene to the actual shot! You can see how utterly freezing it was for our poor models!
The best part about the day was the super fashion show organised by the RIV's very own Events Manager Katharine Knights, who organised the day with utmost efficiency and still remained calm and friendly to everyone there. Really I can't imagine putting my wedding in better hands - she's an absolute joy to work with and real asset to the hotel.
Another Annalise Harvey favourite photographer Khalile Siddiqui was on hand to capture the fashion show in the stunning Valley Restaurant and the dresses looked really lovely on the runway - on such gorgeous grils! Special thanks to Ness, Scarlett, Lucy and Inga for giving up their time on the day and being so utterly radiant! I loved Gossips hair and Beauty's interpretation of the dresses for hair and make-up, so different from how we shot them back in November, and it was great to see these gorgeous gowns moving so well and really showing off what I love to work into my designs - a sense of drama as well as occasion, with the Bride as an 'event in her own right'.
And as you know the photo opportunities are SPLENDID!
