Springtime Ballet Brides
It still felt rather wintry outside, but after some much-needed restorative hot drinks, it was time to get to work. With hair by Yvette Clarke and her assistant Zea, and make-up by Sophie Downing, ballerinas Emily and Connie looked ready to grace any stage. The elegance of the ballerinas was matched by their delicate tulle skirts, made by English Country Vintage.
Amy from Polka-Dot Florist supplied and arranged the flowers, and she fell in love with the hand-dyed silk ribbons created by Alison from Border Cottage Flowers. Amy’s gorgeous pink blossoms, and peach and pink roses were a perfect choice to tie in with the soft hues of the ballet.
Sarah of The Sugared Rose indulged the throng with a stunning 4-tier confection, displaying hand painted sides. Her individual cutting cake and exquisite iced biscuits were both divine and tempting.
Photographing it all was the talented (and 8 months pregnant!) Elena of Elen Studio Photography, who worked tirelessly to capture so many beautiful images from the day. Carrying her lovely bump didn’t stop Elena from whizzing up a step ladder and getting stunning images as a result.
The shoot was organised and styled by Mary-Ann of Thomasina Brides, whose accessories added the perfect finishing touch to this beautiful bridal look.
