Bridal Boudoir Shoot with Lee Parker

I am finally showing you some more photos from the fantastic shoot I did late last year with Lee Parker Photography (Sussex). We only had the West Midlands venue for 6 hours, but managed to do a few different themes within that time and incorporated some bouquets, shoes and veil from local businesses!

This bridal boudoir photo shoot turned out beautifully and features shoes and veil from Boho Bride Boutique in Stratford upon Avon as well as brooch bouquets by Kerry Gold at Bouquet Chic Unique. The stockings are vintage 1950’s as is my bustier and the garters have been made by Extra Special Touch.

My hair was masterfully styles by the talented Karen D Bebbington of KDB Vintage Hairstyling!

I will post images of the other parts of the shoot asap and we have another booked in April! Yippeeeeee!

Stoneleigh Militaria 2018

What a lovely weekend! We managed to hire our first ever baby sitter (eek!) and head off to Woody at War’s 1940’s dance at Stoneleigh on the Saturday evening. We haven’t been to a dance since I was pregnant! The last time I went to this one was when Kieran at the USO Shows was running it, so I didn’t know what to expect. Woody had done an excellent job and had even set up a little USO stage for me to sing on! The place was packed and everyone looked wonderful.

On the Sunday it was time for the Stoneleigh Militaria Show. I was singing in the foyer at 1pm, so we had plenty of time to walk around the stalls! I had managed to do little victory rolls in Betsy’s hair and she looked ridiculously cute in her khaki jumpsuit and headscarf.

There were 3 really good clothing stalls at the show 2 in the main hall, 1 in the second) and I got a lovely bargain 50’s straw bag and a jacket to wear with my Heyday trousers. Richard got me a lovely wool suit for Valentine’s that I can’t wait to wear!

It was wonderful to see some familiar faces and new ones alike. Some people I hadn’t seen for so long, they didn’t realise that I now sing?! So many cuddles and greetings, lots of cooing over Queen B and her hair, lots of catching up and a great singing set. I always enjoy this show, I think many of us treat it as the ‘real’ new year in the 1940’s scene as it is the first event of the year for us! It seemed to be a lot busier this year too.
