Ever since my wife opened her second designer wedding dress Ellie Sanderson Bridal Boutique in the centre of Oxford in the trendy area of Little Clarendon Street I have been dying to do an interior shoot for her.
Well we finally did it last Monday and we are all delighted with the results. The shop is so beautiful inside and the attention to detail is second to none, it’s easy to see why along with the fantastic service the brides get from Nicola and the team there that Ellie has already gained such an amazing reputation and some lovely reviews from brides on Guides For Brides.
We visited the Spirit of Christmas show at Olympia last week looking for some final display props and found the gorgeous large silver giant clam shells which were filled with soft veils, pearls (of course!) and to finish off a fab pair of Rachel Simpson shoes. All the beautiful flowers you see here were kindly provided by the highly regarded Fabulous Flowers.
For the shoot I used mainly the available boutique lighting with some off camera flash with colour correction gels and a tripod plus I hired a 50mm f1.2 L series Canon lens for the day as I wanted a really tiny depth of field for some of the accessory shots. The main boutique shots were taken at f11 at 1 second with a tungsten white balance setting and tweaked in Lightroomrge afterwards using some further colour correction and boosting the vibrance, clarity and contrast.
Here are a few of the shots and a video of the shoot at the end.
