Gold Styled Shoot

March 9, 2018 | News

We’re revisiting a styled shoot from our archives today.

The theme was gold to celebrate our special edition magazine (limited copies are still available to buy by clicking here). One of my all time favourite photos ever is the one of the girls with the sailor… he wasn’t a model, just a random passer by walking his dogs! Classic. I love Hastings for it’s classic seaside nostalgia; quirky amusements, traditional cafes and fish & chip shops…

You don’t want generic for your special day – you want wow, but most importantly you want it to be about your own passions and personalities. Despite London being the fashion and creative capital of the UK, it’s surprising how…
