Rallio and Walter’s ‘Boho Lux’ Greek Wedding with Light Earthy Tones and Gold Accents by Lighthouse Photography
Well hello you lovely lot and welcome to Monday! I hope your weekend was good?...
Today I have something a bit different for you it’s a styled shoot in celebration of The Queens Jubilee this bank holiday weekend. The shoot was put together by Kelly and Colette at All Wrapped Up and shot by the amazing James Melia.
The concept to the shoot is a simple one but it is has been perfectly executed by a great team and a very brave model! The first images are beautifully shot while the second half of the shoot is more fun and is certainly unique!
Here are a few words from Kelly and Colette about how the shoot came about…………
Ever since I started planning weddings and looking at pretty dresses there has always been this thing at the back of my mind…… in fact even before that, since being young I’ve always wanted to see something really pretty with literally paint all over it! It’s a hard thing to balance; you don’t want to disrespect anyone by actually trashing a dress they have designed.
Then after speaking to the lovely Charlotte Balbier one day in general conversation about a shoot I’d love to do she offered me one of her lovely creations to use, after checking at least 10 times that she was 100% sure she didn’t mind me literally destroying a dress we went ahead with the shoot!!
It started off at first quiet complex, jubilee themed, flowers, cakes, accessories table setups, baseball bats, then after taking a step back I quickly began to realise the main feature of the shoot was that I wanted to rebel against the Jubilee in a respectful and fun way, not just destroy for destroying sake, less fuss – more fun. And unlike most shoots, the general idea was for it not to be a 8 hour marathon! We had Rosie to model, and the dress, so after being in contact with James (Melia) and Nita (Malata) and that was all we needed!
After a few carefully selected props (ok a few tubs of paint, a LOVE umbrella and a wonderful hair fascinator from Bink of Pearls and Swine) we all met up one Sunday morning and got to it.
3 hours later we were done, laughing and trying to undress and clean off Rosie on top of a bridge! Importantly we had fun, Rosie looks amazing in the dress and the location worked perfectly!
Big thanks to everyone involved, already so many ideas in the pipeline for future projects together which will be just as fun!

Looks like you had sooooo much fun! Love the Union Jack mask too xx
Ha ha I love it! I love chucking paint – right up my street!
What an awesome shoot – Not many models would be up for such a riot! true britishness! Love it
Great artistic photos, this dress looks like a real canvas. But what a shame, such a beautiful dress ruined!
The shots where you can see the pain about to splash are just so cool! This photshoot has brightened up my day, and put a big smile on my face!
Love this, Charlotte is a real trooper watching her dress get beautifully trashed…it might just survive it though, my Balbier gown has been trashed twice and worn for 11 of our weddings! MAybe in the end I might be brave enough to get colourful with Tabitha! Great inspiration and great pics! Xx
