I'm really excited this afternoon to be sharing part 1 of a photoshoot involving some of my favourite people. They include Photographer Alex Beadon, whose work I just simply adore and who I have been following for some time now, as well as Love My Dress Sponsor Madeline Isaac-James and Makeup Artist Extraordinaire, Kaz Fernando, who I'll be spending most of tomorrow with!

I love to feature this type of photoshoot on Love My Dress, especially where a great deal of effort has gone into styling the shoot like it has here.  The imagery can offer so much to Brides in terms of inspiration; it might be the hair accessories, bridal wear or the fabulous decor and styling – talking of which, you have to see the photographs towards the ends of this shoot in particular because my word, I don't think I've ever seen such a fabulous looking spread!

I'm going to hand over to Photographer Alex Beadon to explain the story behind this Cinderalla inspired shoot…

"I started the New Year with a variety of goals in mind, one of them was to shoot a highly creative bridal fashion photo shoot a season. I really did not know how I was going to do this or if anyone would even be interested in joining me, but I thought I would go for it anyway.

The first thing I did was get in touch with Annabel because I thought that she would probably have the best idea of people to recommend for such a project. All it took was one tweet from Annabel and all of a sudden I was introduced to a variety of wedding dress designers, the first one being the amazingly talented Natalie Gladman of Madeline Isaac-James…"

We only had a few weeks to bring everything together, as we wanted to have the images ready for February. I wanted the shoot to be Cinderella-inspired and we agreed that Natalie's gorgeous dresses would fit perfectly…"

"After pulling together a variety of brilliant wedding suppliers to make up our oh-so-talented creative team, I knew that we were in the right hands and that the shoot would be a photographer's dream come true – and it was. I spent the entire day buzzing, so happy to be doing what I love and so happy to watch what I had envisioned in my mind become a reality. On the day we had a total of 17 people involved, and I could not have been more proud and honoured to work with each and every one of them…"

Here is part one of the fruits of our labour. We wanted it to be very whimsical and surreal, and I think we definitely achieved that…"
