Photoshoot at Goosey and Florey Marquees

Anna McDonald Bridal Gallery one of the leading wedding dress shops in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire shows off some of her sort after wedding dresses by leading designers Justin Alexander, Paloma Blanca, Marylise and Sophia Tolli.

Our fabulous team were let loose again for what has to be one of the best shoots yet, we get together on a regular basis to show you all how our expertise comes together.

It all started when Kate Hopewell-Smith was on her way home after setting up at a bespoke event hosted by Florey Marquees in Wantage when her Sat Nav sent her in the wrong direction and she ended up in Goosey, Oxfordshire. Kate just knew that this was the spot for our next shoot.

On a very overcast and muddy day Kate very quickly clocked the lovely church, phone box and with our lovely VW Camper Van Laura she knew that this was the perfect spot. There was a moment when a beautiful white horse came galloping across the green and Kate looked at me and smiled I just knew what she was about to ask! absolutely no way was Natalia and one of my beautiful Justin Alexander wedding dresses going to be getting on that horse!

We spent hours with Natalia our lovely model who I made wear my wellies (definitely not suitable for gorgous ivory bridal shoes) whilst Cat Fransham from Make up for brides waved her magic wand and made Natalia look simply amazing!, and Sarah Fitzgerald from Euphoria Couture created the perfect hairpieces to compliment my bridal gowns. We had so much fun watching Kate click away with Natalia eating cake and watching from behind the scenes you would never know that whilst in the phone box Natalia had brambles wrapped around the T length Justin Alexander wedding dress digging into her legs. Its amazing the lengths you have to go to to get the perfect shot!!

We were very lucky to know Anna MacDougall a wedding planner from Bride and Glory who was the source of Laura the VW van and Vintage Days kindly let us borrow the cake stand and vintage accessories and our lovely Joanna Carter made us the perfect bouquets of flowers for our perfect shoot.

A huge thank you goes to Mark Florey for inviting us to join in with the amazing Marquee show that he put on for all his and our customers and prospects to see.

What will be next! xxx
