Last week, we created this. And we are dying to do it again!
Honestly, working with this team was just amazing. I have not done any kind of styled bridal session before so it was such fun to pull it all together – to wander Granada and find the perfect florist, to enter into Blanca’s shop of tocados overflowing with beautiful pieces, to see the gorgeous of Yamila’s baked treats and then to finally taste them – and then to get to share it with all of you.
We have an incredible team here in Granada that pulled this gorgeous shoot together. It was coordinated & styled by Mariam (and look at the ceramic work she does!), made fragrant by Rebecca, sweetened by Yamila, then styled and made-up by Africa and detailed with beautiful tocados by Blanca, jewellery from Munira‘s and the location provided by Roco at El Caldero. And I can’t forget our gorgeous models, Z & L – such an absolute pleasure to work with them.
We had a particular vision in mind and although things didn’t turn out exactly as we’d planned, it really was a better day than I could have imagined. Everything just seemed to come together wonderfully. There were all kinds of laughable hurdles (and even a literal hurdle as we had to climb the fence to get into the restaurant – all very legal, I swear!) but they really were all part of what made the day so special.
Such a wonderful group to work with.
Over the coming weeks, I will introduce you to each of these vendor-artists in more detail (so stay tuned!) but in the meantime, have a look at their sites, have a look at their work and feast your eyes below. Tell us what you think – could you see yourself getting married here, perhaps under the olive trees, as the sun sets and the stars come out?
The sweets, the flowers, this table, oh my:Can I just tell you that this pastries were filled with chocolate and caramel and topped with a raspberry dusted in gold. I think that’s all I need to say….Yes, we really did get to sample this deliciousness. And yes, it was frantic and amazing and satisfying.And of course, I saved my favourites for last, just when we were running against the 6pm sunset:
