Before you love, learn to run through the snow leaving no footprint ..... (Turkish Proverb)

 Anyone we've worked with knows that we like to plan, and I mean really like to plan!

There is usually a phenomenal amount of work in ensuring that our photo shoots are as fabulous as they can be, so Tuesday's Winter Wonderland shoot was certainly something different for us. It started around about Monday lunchtime when Lisa calmly said 'How do you fancy doing a photo shoot tomorrow? It would be such a shame to miss the snow'.  Well, you see, that's another thing about us - we can't resist a challenge and there was no answer other than yes!

So within the space of 3 hours, Lisa had sorted everything for our mini photo shoot. We were incredibly lucky that the fabulous Helen Guy Make-Up Artist had already booked the equally fabulous Jim Poyner to take some promotional shots for her so we asked them if they would kindly switch location to the stunning Sutton Park Stately Home, just outside of York. We love this venue and we know you will do once you've seen these gorgeous winter wonderland pictures.

Beautiful isn't it? Well feast your eyes on these pictures and indulge in our Winter Wonderland...


Amy looks absolutely beautiful in this gorgeous Justin Alexander dress, shoes and accessories, available from Mia Sposa, York. 

It's so difficult to choose, but for me personally, this is one of my favourite shots...

OK - I've sneaked in a 'behind the scenes' shot, but doesn't she just look gorgeous? Absolutely freezing cold and still smiling - well done Amy!

She wasn't our only beautiful model for the day though. Here's Jess, in another gorgeous Justin Alexander dress and accessories from Mia Sposa, York. 

What an amazing job Helen has done with the hair and make-up. We wanted a look that was a little more dramatic than normal and she captured it perfectly.


It wouldn't be a Wedding Affair photo shoot without the hugely talented Elaine from Cakes for All Occasions Yorkshire... Her winter wonderland cake and cupcakes were stunning and oh so delicious...  the team could certainly testify to that!!
