Everyone needs a bit of glamour in their lives, right? Well I had more than a taste of it yesterday morning when I was involved in a photo shoot in the centre of Hebden.
A few weeks ago I bumped into Chrissie from Hat Therapy (on Market Street). Chrissie explained she had organised a photo shoot for some new promo material she wanted.
Chrissie is a milliner and I first encountered her at a WI meeting where she made floppy lifeless bits of cloth transform into incredible headpieces with little pinches and subtle adjustments.
They had a brunette model for the shoot but she was hoping for a redhead too and she asked if I would be interested…I was never going to say no!
It was fab. The day started with hair done by Debbie at Zeitgeist, a gorgeous salon on Carlton Street. The make up was done by an artist called Alison from York and while all this was happening Chrissie was busy prepping the pieces helped by her intern Holly.
Rachel from Rachel Lucie Jewellery had brought along some pretty pieces to add to the styling. Soon Shelley, the photographer from Toast of Leeds, turned up and began to shoot.
Wonderful, wonderful. It doesn’t half look good. Have a gander at some of the gorgeous images on Shelley’s blog http://toastofleeds.com/2013/03/vintage-town-hall-wedding-creative-wedding-photographer
