With me sat firmly behind the lens, here are the participants of the shoot.
From left to right and a big thank you to all, Cara Jonsson (Runner and assistant), James (assistant and sun shade), Esther Fox (model), Lisa Cochrane (dress designer), Sareena (model), Nicolette Hindle (makeup artist), Lisa Jane Purvis (makeup artist), Miel (model), Benita Jonsson (assistant and holder of things), Carol (model), Louise (model), anonymous assistant and Kate Thornton (hair stylist from Nadia's Hair Salon in Rothesay). My wife was busy guarding the changing room and gets a double heaping of thanks for putting up with me for the last month or so!
Thanks also to everyone for keeping the faith and turning up, the weather last night and this morning was definitely against us, but the sun graced us with an appearance in the afternoon in time for shooting and it even warmed up enough so that most of the models did not freeze to death!
Thanks also to the staff at Kelburn who were very welcoming, helped us with extra tables, fed us teas and coffees at the cafe while it was still raining in the morning and even helped lift stuff back into the car at the end of the day!
All the dresses for the shoot were supplied by Lisa at Dragonfly Dress Design and more pictures will follow in my gallery over the next week or two.
The bouquets were supplied by Studio Flowers in Gourock, some of the jewellery and tiaras were hand made by Jill Kirkwood.
