Wearing Wedding Dresses at Melanie James

March 5, 2014

My friend owns Melanie James, a beautiful bridal boutique in Chorlton which champions the work of independent designers. She asked me if I would help out and model the new range of Eliza Jane Howell dresses at an open day.

I felt like a starlet with my 1930s inspired up-do thanks to the handy-work of the stylists at Bethany Jane Davies.

The most difficult part of the day was answering the questions of budding brides to be. They all wanted to know which dress was my favorite and I was spoiled for choice!

My mum didn’t know that I’d agreed to model for Melanie that day so I sent her this picture with the caption ‘we decided to get married, sorry that we didn’t invite you’. My phone rang immediately. Sorry Mum!

The photographs with a signature in the corner in were taken by Craige Barker and those without are by Jo Gendle. They are so talented, you can click on the names to visit their websites.

Jo specialises in wedding videos and footage from the event features in this exquisite short film.
