Hey all!

So you may have seen our artwork for our event that we are planning in association with Tower Hamlets Arts Council around and about! If you haven’t then what are you waiting for! The April event is called ‘Spoken For’ and is a celebration of London based unique design. And as we all know, London is a hub of incredible, creative, alternative and innovative design. 

Im so over the moon to show you these images. When I first saw them I absolutely fell in love with how enigmatic each and every shot is. Created by the talent that is Lucy Davenport using headpieces created by the incredibly multi talented Curious Fair the images showcase a diverse range of options for the contemporary , adventurous fashion and couture aware Bride. 

With hair by Jo Irving from Love Hair, dresses from Rue de Seine, Kelsey Jenner and Charlotte Casadejus at Luella’s Boudoir, along with jewellery from Rose & Aster, the shoot really brings alive a fairytale element mixing bridal with a modern mystical and theatrical edge. 

So often now we are seeing brides become more and more adventurous and for the fun loving boho amongst us Curious Fair’s headpieces using feathers, twigs and other natural elements couldn’t be more suited.

Lucy shares her ideas behind the shoot – 

“I stumbled across Curious Fair on Instagram and knew immediately that I had to collaborate with them on a shoot.

Myself and Jo Irving at Lovehair got together to brainstorm, and we both took inspiration from Aynhoe Park, one of the wedding venues where I am a recommended wedding photographer. Aynhoe is constantly changing, but they currently have a Unicorn in their Orangery so Jo and I decided we wanted our own Unicorn to shoot!

With Natalie from Curious Fair on board, we gave her the brief to create pieces based on the Unicorn, and other aspects within nature – we wanted dreamy, inspiring pieces.”

Natalie at Curious Fair:

We are creators of all things unique & handmade. Our bespoke headdresses & masks are perfect accessories for alternative weddings.

Our headdresses & masks are adorned with real feathers, dried flowers, vintage jewellery, antique lace, handmade paper & other natural materials. Each bespoke headdress & mask is made to order with great care and attention to detail ensuring no two headpieces are ever the same!

Jo from Love Hair:

I wanted to create pretty, feminine hair styles that could be worn at a wedding or a festival.

The model already had a pink wash in her hair but I enhanced that with flashes of bright pink using extensions. Tiny plaits look great and add a really wearable yet festival feel to any hair length and the accessories were just amazing so didn’t need much styling so I went for staple soft ‘boho’ waves to compliment the head pieces. I then got creative with plaits and used fishtail, regular, french plaits and knotting techniques to add texture.

On make up was Ana Ospina who is so creative, and having worked with her so much already, I knew she’d see our vision and help bring the look together.

Ana says: The Make Up Looks I designed to go with these fashion stories were not your typical Bridal Make Up Looks, the inspiration for the shoot was to showcase some beautiful Bridal designs in a more edgy and contemporary way. We wanted to go for something a little more editorial in style to give inspiration to those fashion savvy Brides that aren’t afraid to try something a little more daring. The main thing I wanted to translate on camera was a very dewy look to my models skin. I started of with a natural look using pale gold sheens on both eyes and lips. I kept cheeks a soft coral in tone and applied a full brow and false lash application. This created a make up style that was not only natural and soft but also quite dreamy.

For the next look I then introduced more colour using airbrush foundation by Temptu and even used their adjusters and shimmers on eyes and on cheeks to create a cut crease on the lids and a contour and highlight on the cheeks. I worked with a gold, copper, pink and plum palette.

For a final look I wanted to create some art on the face using a stencil and again a mix of the plum and copper layered through the stencil using my airbrush gave a little dimension to the roses design I applied. My models looks and face shape lent itself to the pixie/baroque style we ended up with. As with all artistic collaborations the looks evolved and we expanded on them all until we created an end result I can truly say rocked. It was amazing being part of such a creative team for this shoot.
