A few short months ago my regular co-conspirator, Tommy Martin, and I had a meeting at the Rampsbeck Country House Hotel, Ullswater, with their wedding planner, Michelle Taylor, and general manager, Alison Mathewson, about using the hotel for a photoshoot. We wanted to showcase the best of what we could with the best of what of what other suppliers had to offer, and make the most of the stunning decor and surroundings of the hotel.
A date was set for early March and on the day of the shoot we were joined by Tommy’s assistant, Katie, hair stylist Tanya Tinkler, from Salon Rouge in Penrith, florist Morag Braidwood of Flowers By Design, and the dresses were supplied by Wedding Warehouse in Carlisle.
Our three models for the day were Charlotte Robson, Rebecca Ferguson and agency model Jess, from La Moda, Liverpool.
The day proved to be a bit of a let down weather wise so we concentrated on interior shots, with a promise to return later in the Spring to capture the beautifully landscaped hotel grounds.
Make-up used included Hourglass, Nars, Illamasqua and Urban Decay with skincare from Paula’s Choice.
