Now, here is a set of images that pretty much match this little blog’s name :-) This engagement session sure is a celebration of all things whimsical wonderland, and are pure dreamy… l.o..v.e….
Thanks so much to Surrey wedding photographer, Sue Venables Photography for sharing her work, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“The photographs are a celebration of Wendy and Thom’s recent engagement. They have been dating for a couple of years, having met through a fantastic mutual friend. The photographs came about through a series of discussions with them. They wanted to have an engagement photo shoot but were keen that it was a little bit different. They are both natural performers (Thom is in a band called ‘The Outdoor Types’) and Wendy loves getting dressed up in her very best vintage.
The shoot was also a good excuse for me to get out my finest shabby chic crockery and props and get styling. I decorated some fairy cakes with red and white shaped hearts and I collected together some old pocket watches, white roses and vintage books, to set the scene. The decanter is meant to look like it is filled with Absinth but it was in fact some food dye! Seeing the table laid out on the edge of farm land was really quite surreal. The cold misty weather was freezing and the ground was boggy underfoot. The adverse conditions added a huge sense of emergency to the shoot as both myself and the couple couldn’t wait to be inside!
Their were a few hilarious moments where I was doubled up laughing. For example when Alice sat on the chair which promptly disappeared into the boggy soil and the ‘Mad Hatter,’ tried hard to keep a straight face for the camera whilst his ‘Alice,’ was sinking before his eyes!
But by the power of technology I have just about managed to visually warm up Alice and add some warmth to the cheeks of the Mad Hatter! I would like to thank Wendy and Thom for their patience and good humour!
If you would have some ideas for a themed photo shoot that you would like to discuss with me then please don’t hesitate to get in contact. The shoots cost around £299 and include DVD’s of full resolution post produced images.”
