Back in July, we enjoyed a trip down near St. Ives for a fashion shoot at a local stables. Despite an aggressive wind, the sun was bright and we managed to take some beautiful shots of our model and horse. Our friend Natasha, from Natasha Flower make-up, arranged the shoot, and County Cream provided the dress and veil.
When model and horse were suitably prepared, we trotted out to a quiet field in the hope of capturing some of the impact an equine guest can bring to Cornwall wedding photography. The weather was bright, but a strong wind made photography a challenge as our lighting umbrellas fought against the gusts. Thankfully we managed to work through the wind, and seal some fine images of the model and bridal-wear.
The wind wasn’t the only obstacle, however, and our trusty steed proved less than reliable. Fortune – and the stablemistress – eventually prevailed, and our horse ceased his charging and settled into more photogenic postures. Our patience was rewarded with some standout photographs of horse and rider set against the brilliant summer sky. Eventually we retreated into the stable barn, where the rustic wood interiors made an evocative backdrop for some darker shots, as the wedding dress stood contrast between the horses and haybales.
Finally it was time to leave, and we said farewell to our model, and to the stables. A memorable day’s shoot left us with some great photographs, and we were pleased to see Dotty Vintage Weddings magazine feature the photoshoot in their latest issue.
