I was delighted to be contacted by Natalie from www.passionateaboutvintage.co.uk with plans for a photoshoot for Pretty Nostalgic magazine. Of course, I jumped at the chance to be involved in this creative concept. We liaised directly with the lovely Jo and Tina at the magazine and they gave us direction as to the look and feel of the article that Natalie was writing and for the images that they wanted to accompany this, using images from Pinterest to illustrate their thoughts.
I am lucky to have lots of friends locally in Faversham, one of whom, Griselda, lives in the Old Bakery in Abbey Street. It was perfect for the shoot, with lots of lovely windowsills and natural light. The timing was tight so Natalie managed to borrow some beautiful apothecary jars from her contacts at The Borrowed Blue Boutique which we handled with trepidation – they were so fragile! Natalie also used some of her own glassware collection to complement her pieces. Natalie also wanted some roses and other delicate blooms for the photoshoot so I, of course, recommended that she contact my friend Charlotte of www.lottysflowers.com, another Faversham based supplier.
As always, I waited with baited breath once I’d uploaded the images for Jo and her team to see – but was delighted with their response:
“Thanks so much for your help with our jewellery feature – it is spectacular and makes me want to start collecting immediately, so I’m sure it will make the same impression on readers.”
Phew! So, here are the images and article from the magazine … let me know what you think!
Doesn’t the jewellery look gorgeous!
Natalie has since also been featured in Your Kent Wedding magazine in which several pieces of Natalie’s jewellery (and photographed by me) were shown:
If you are planning a vintage wedding or are looking for a statement piece of heirloom jewellery, do contact Natalie. She has a wealth of knowledge and I always thoroughly enjoy photographing all the various pieces and hearing their history. And, of course, if you have a collection of jewellery that you need to have photographed, you can contact me firstname.lastname@example.org!
