*SATC style shoot, Sheffield stylee!!*

Wedding Daz, PH Weddings and i had been eagerly awaiting Sunday 27th June as it was the Sex and the city photo shoot!.
Months of planning became a reality when our models for the day the lovely Eleanor Brodie and her four bridesmaids arrived at Kenwood Hall for preparations. Eleanor is getting married next June in California so this gave the ladies an ideal opportunity to practice dressing up and posing for the camera!
Kenwood Hall kindly provided us with a location for the ladies to get ready, stunning balloon bouquets arrived from Celebrations Balloons and our make up artist Lauren Sally and hairdresser Louise from Creator arrived just as the champagne started flowing!
The makeup from Lauren was amazing, she used airbrushes to apply foundation which is a great solution for any wedding day as it lasts all day and we definitely put it to the test in the hot weather. The ladies brought fake eyelashes with them, some from the Sex and the City collection! Louise from Creator Hair created some stunning styles ranging from free flowing curls to elaborate up dos to compliment the ladies hair accessories. We were spoilt for choice for accessories with truly beautiful vintage hair combs and headbands from Debbie at DC Bouquets and clips and slides from the Charlotte Balbier and Amanda Wyatt collections.
The dresses were nothing short of amazing, The Charlotte Balbier style Camilla wedding dress which was inspired by the Sex and the City film was Eleanor’s dress for the day and looked amazing on. Eleanor’s feather hair accessory from the  Charlotte Balbier collection really set off her blue eyes perfectly and really turned her into Carrie for the day!
The bridesmaids wore dresses from Amanda Wyatt collections and all looked very glamorous. All the dresses were set off with every girls’ favourite accessory – the shoes! Bespoke Big Day provided them with some amazing shoes to chose from, Eleanor’s shoes with pink sparkly heels were so amazing (i want a pair!). The ladies bouquets were provided by Boutique Paeony and it was such a shame to ruin the bride’s bouquet for the big scene but it did look amazing!
Sheffield City Hall provided them with a location for the famous scene from the first film where Carrie hits Big over the head with her bouquet after he jilts her! Our “Mr Big” for the day was Simon from Chauffeur D’Elegance, he chauffeured the ladies in an amazing Bentley Arnage. Further shots in the city hall included a reenactment of the scene where Carrie receives the call from Big to say he isn’t coming and some spectacular and dizzy shots of Eleanor spinning around like Carrie did in the Vogue shoot.
It was time for a break in the Botanical Gardens, the SATC girls were provided  with a tea party picnic. Amazing vintage crockery was provided kindly by Jennie from Hansley Beard event design and the food itself – salads, quiche, strawberries and pate was provided by Coco Catering. The icing on the cake (so to speak!) were the cupcakes provided by Yummylicious complete with I love NY icing. They even had their own menu and placecards for the ladies provided by Lucy Ledger Designs.
There was just time for a bit of post picnic frisbee, jumping and bubbles before they all casually strolled along Ecclesall Road attracting some attention  to Menzels bar for some well deserved Cosmopolitans!

As you can see all the SATC girls looked AMAZING, especially the bride in her CB gown and they had lot's and lot's of fun.
