Lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Powder Room -

I was de­lighted to work on an­other pho­to­shoot with The Scot­tish Wed­ding Direc­tory this month.

I love be­ing part of ed­i­to­rial work, so to spend a day work­ing on lo­ca­tion with a very tal­ented team around you is a joy.

This was for the July is­sue and was shot at Muck­rach Lodge, 13 miles from Aviemore. It is an ab­so­lutely stun­ning set­ting. With hair stylist Lidia At­tino of Vol­ume Hair, pho­tog­ra­pher Chris Blott, Beth Far­quhar Fash­ion co-or­di­na­tor from the mag­a­zine and model Claire Thomp­son, on lo­ca­tion for the day, I re­ally was work­ing with a top team.

And with 12 dresses to shoot in the sun­shine, it was straight to work upon ar­rival ... the joys of work­ing in the un­pre­dictable Scot­tish weather! The look of the day for hair and make-up was soft, nat­u­ral and sum­mery.

There were a few hair changes to com­pli­ment the dif­fer­ent dresses, but the make up re­mained the same lovely, warm earthy tones to suit Claire’s gor­geous red hair, with just a lit­tle touch up here and there to keep her cam­era ready be­tween shots.

Beth se­lected the ex­quis­ite dresses and chose from a huge se­lec­tion of gor­geous jew­ellery and beau­ti­ful bou­quets and head pieces. Not the worst job in the world!

It truly was a great ex­pe­ri­ence and now I can look for­ward to my favourite bit the day the mag­a­zine is de­liv­ered to my stu­dio and I get to see all the hard work from Beth and the team in print. It’s so re­ward­ing.
