The Gown Gang are back in full swing, wearing the latest collection from Matthew Williamson. This time instead of shooting around the streets and hotels of London, we took it to a whole new level by taking over the magnificent and regal Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire.
Of course the main purpose of the day is to shoot some stunning photos of the dresses, but we have fun with it and have the most epic girlie day. We play a grown up game of dress up – trying on the stunning gowns, finding a pair of Jimmy Choos in our size, having our makeup done and then prancing around the place pretending to be the ladies of the manor. Every girl deserves to feel like a princess every now and again, right?! And believe me, this is a far cry from my usual Monday mornings with my hair scraped back, bare face and frantically typing away at my laptop (I’m describing my appearance in this very moment).
My hair was freshly blow dried during the morning by Ruuby, a service that come straight to your home or wherever is convenient, and our makeup was done by the talented artists from Charlotte Tilbury. All of our shoes are from Jimmy Choo, and of course the gowns are Matthew Williamson. I chose a beautiful yellow number, Duchess Garden Parachute Gown, with a low back and draping cape – possibly my favourite dress I’ve ever worn – I just wanted to spin around all day! The second dress, Pink Kantuta Valley, was again beautiful with a pastel floral print, a belt to cinch in the waist and bead detailing around the neckline.
All of our dresses complimented each other perfectly. Didn’t all the girls looked dazzling in their gowns?!
