Mia Amelia Bridal photo shoot with New Light Photography

What better way to spend a cold autumn morning than inside a beautiful warm wedding dress boutique surrounded by lace, beads and stunning wedding dresses?

That is exactly what we did when we had our fantastic photo shoot with Alistair from New Light Photography.

Having called into Liberty Hair York, a couple of weeks before to tell Debbie, the owner, about our new wedding dress boutique and hat hire shop, Debbie discussed with us her desire to get back into doing more bridal hair. It seemed like the perfect collaboration! We were planning a photo shoot and needed hair and make up doing and Debbie offered her bridal skills for the shoot.

Acomb, York (where Mia Amelia Bridal and Reloved Hat Boutique is located) is very much a community spirited suburb of York. We have enjoyed settling in and making friends and we recognise how lucky we have been to have the support of Debbie at Liberty Hair.

We also called into Floral Elegance and were blown away when Sue Hunter offered to showcase her fabulous flowers and designs for bridal for the shoot. Local talent and absolutely amazing flowers providing the perfect finishing touch for our photo shoot. Sue’s flowers were innovative and evoked so many ” Oooo’s and Ah’s” from all the girls on the shoot.

On the morning of the shoot, we headed down to Liberty Hair York and had a lovely time getting our models, Becky and Gemma ready.

Gemma went for understated eye make-up and then a show stopping red lipstick to really compliment her skin tone. Debbie’s “hair up” on Gemma really showed off Debbies talent and bridal hairstyle complimented our wedding dresses wonderfully.

We decided that for Becky she should have natural bridal make-up, using warm natural make up tones and with bouncy loose long curls of hair, with a section of her hair put up so that we could accessorise with a veil and flowers in her hair.

Having lots of photography experience, Alistair at New Light Photography wanted to move more into wedding photography so it was a great chance to get some lovely images for his portfolio. Alistair really put our models at ease and expertly made sure the lighting was perfect, capturing the most amazing photos for us (and him) to use.  Alistair was patient, relaxed and a pleasure to have in our boutique and the models/brides shone under his camera lens, which we think was because we all really enjoyed working with him.

What a fun day it was! Plenty of giggles, a relaxed atmosphere and the help and support from our local business we were able to pull together another really successful and exciting photo shoot.

We hope we can work with these fantastic businesses again soon.
