A few weeks ago the ever so charming Catherine from Lily and Frank Photography and I headed to the gloriously tropical Milton Keynes (well Whaddon to be exact) to meet Mrs Scoops and take some pictures.
Mrs S (Hayley) and I started chatting on twitter months and months ago, so we reckoned it was about time we met in real life. Imagine! And what better excuse than a photoshoot. Accompanied of course by her trusted companion, Betty…plus plenty of flowers and ice cream. Surely a marriage made in heaven?
Catherine and I wanted to keep the shoot as simple as possible so decided to stick with (British grown) flowers instead of tiaras and jewels for the models, and to use my Mum’s 42 year old wedding dress for some proper 70’s style, along with more stunning creations from Jo at Jo Fleming Design.
We were after a slight 70’s vintage look, which is why I chose to use Carnations, Chrysanths, Gypsophila and Fern – not my usual shopping at flower market I must say!
Mrs Scoops, Betty and Sid (her oh so cute dog) deserve a post of their own, which will happen next week, but in the meantime, huge thanks to her for being possibly the nicest lady alive, finding us a perfect venue, and serving the yummiest ice cream…
After a brilliant day, we said our farewells to Mrs Scoops and all her friends, who made us feel oh so welcome (and made us a delicious lunch), before making our way to a local Rapeseed field for a few last photos. As you do.
Thank you again to everyone involved in one of the best days, and the biggest kisses to Catherine. You’re quite wonderful x
