Team LWB recently had a lovely “day at the office”. Our Autumn 2017 season is now in the planning (sounds crazy, we know!) and so we needed to get started on the creative. So in the glorious Media City sunshine, Little White Books got together with some of the North West’s finest wedding suppliers and shot the cover for our Autumn 2017 magazine and Great Northern Wedding Show billboards at The Lowry Theatre at Media City.
The Lowry is a magnificent venue, it presented us with so many creative options that we were spoilt for choice. We’re back here with another wedding show in Spring 2017, and if you want info on their wedding packages then simply contact the team here
We’re keeping the official photography by Mick Cookson and the In Love Wedding Films video footage under wraps for now but we just have to share a few sneak peek shots – if you follow us on Instagram and Twitter you may have seen some of these already, and you can search #LWBphotoshoot to see our behind-the-scenes pics from the whole day.
Our models – Hannah and Sam – get married in June 2017 at the stunning Ashfield House and have planned their wedding with Little White Books right from the start, so it was such a pleasure to get them involved in this shoot! Hannah is a pocket rocket, very Carrie Bradshaw and she looked absolutely beautiful in the dresses provided by #GNWA2016 Best Bridalwear Retailer Amelia’s, who also kitted Sam out for the shoot and they were dressed by Amelia's very own very funny and talented Jo.
Hannah’s shoes that you see here were provided by Charlotte Mills - the stunning Alexis Pink peep toe sling backs. She also wore a pair of bespoke, customised shoes from Eleventh Heaven by Ann McKavney – and check out the absolutely glorious hair piece that Ann created, all the ladies on the shoot tried it on! Sam (who literally NEVER stops smiling!) also wore a classic pair of PUMA States supplied by our friends at PUMA UK.
With GNWA Award Winner Kerry Baker on make-up and Carly’s Creations Hair on hair we knew the creative styling and finish would be perfect – they, and all the suppliers, have done Team LWB proud – again!
The weather was glorious but it was VERY hot on set so Hannah needed regular touch-ups and as we featured two looks, Kerry and Carly got to showcase their full range of talents – transforming the looks from day to night with gorgeous results. And what a giggle we had – I’m STILL humming the Charlie’s Angels theme tune!
Red Floral Architecture show exactly why they have been voted Best Florist by North West brides for two successive years at The Great Northern Wedding Awards with bouquets and button holes full of colour, bursting with the most gorgeous succulent textures and painstaking attention to detail. We’re saving the best of the shots for the official launch – you’re in for such a treat!
We even got to have a ride around The Quays with City Centre Cruises so we could view and shoot The Lowry from the water. It’s a wonderful way to explore this spectacular part of our region. The boat caters for lots of different events, and they regularly host Hen Nights and Wedding Receptions, find them on Facebook here.
