Happy Valentines Lunchtime!! 🙂

Regulars of Love My Dress will know that last Tuesday, I spent the day at the truly beautiful Luella's Boudoir in Wimbledon, with a group of my fellow UK Wedding Bloggers. 

I'm going to keep the whole story as to why, and what we got up to, for a post next Monday, but for today, all us Blogging ladies involved have agreed we'd like to share a sneak peek, 'behind-the-scenes' style feature with you all….

I hope you enjoy these tease-worthy photographs and are looking forward to seeing the results of the hard work and collaboration of one amazing creative team next week. I'm so excited about sharing the culmination of all our efforts with you 🙂

Thanks so much to Photographer Amy Bartlam, who was on site assisting primary Photographer Lisa Devlin on the day, for the images featured today…

Photographer Lisa Devlin had one HUGE big posh and very expensive camera to use on the shoot, a loan from Hasselblad, after Lisa won Photographer of the Year Award with the British Journal of Photography (it was such a beast of a machine, each individual photography Lisa shot with it measured a whopping 150MB!!). 

As you can tell, Lisa fell a little bit in love with the Hasselblad









Master of the marcel wave, Severin Hubert, working his magic.  Severin is just so incredibly adorable. I can't recommend his bridal services enough.  Really, I speak from my heart – if you want heavently hair on your wedding day, please visit Sev's website 'Hepburn Collection'

There was lots of sparkly glitter involved.  Lots…

To finish, two teeny sneaky peeks to whet your appetite for the full shoot next Monday 🙂



I'm so excited about sharing the full results of this photoshoot with you next Monday. I've never done anything quite like this before, it was SO much fun, a complete pleasure and total privilage to have been lucky enough to spent time with such a warm, friendly and incredibly talented team of individuals.  I can't rave enough about each and every one of them.

Come back next Monday to see the beautiful results of our shoot. 

For now, credits for those involved…
