Rachel Drewer Millinery fashion shoot – packed full o’pretty.

Oct 10, 2011

Fan-flippin’-tastic local milliner Rachel Drewer contacted me a while ago about doing a shoot in collaboration with fashion blogger and all-round-lovely Sarah Leigh Wade (check out her fashion blog, Sarah Leigh’s Style Files).  So last weekend I met with them both (and stylist/model/superfox Sophie Penn, and corking MUA Vicki Bunting) at The Grange at Northington in a state of some excitement.  I have been going to the Grange for some years, but have never been able to secure permission to shoot inside, until now.  The Grange is an amazing building owned by English Heritage (read about its history here, and see Sarah-Leigh’s blog for some fab behind-the-scenes images ), and the semi-derelict inside is just breathtaking. The Grange Park Opera were beyond kind in allowing us to have full range of its amazing facilities.  We were there for 5 hours but I could have spent the weekend there and still not got close to the amount of images I wanted to make.

Using Rachel’s Autumn/Winter headwear, plus vintage clothing from Southampton’s Hepwrights, we had the best time creating some period fusion images – I hope you like the results.

Sarah, Rachel, Sophie & Vicki (& Catherine from Hepwrights)- I had a blast doing this with such a talented crew, I can’t wait to work with you all again.  Go Team US!
