Red Carpet Ready – Shooting Beautiful Gowns in a Beautiful Location.

Hey!

So this weekend, I travelled across to Lincoln to shoot for Red Carpet Ready – the largest dress specialist in the country! When I say these dresses are amazing – I don’t mean just cute dresses that you see each day. These dresses are next level! Stunning gowns in every design and colour-way you can imagine. Many are encrusted with beautiful gems and beading and intricate detail.

I arrived around midnight to my hotel after attending an event and got myself showered and settled ready for an early start. I met one of the other models Hayley for a quick breakfast and then we travelled to the location – MY GOODNESS. We certainly didn’t expect the location we arrived at!

The lovely Tina and Simon Grantham (friends of the owner of RCR) had loaned their beautiful home for the day to shoot in. The whole house was exquisite – crushed velvet, white marble, grand chandeliers, beautiful textured walls, stunning flower displays – it was literally the dream home. Not to mention the Bentley and Ferrari on the drive!

Just a taster of the beautiful home.

We created some group shots where we all wore different styles but in the same colour scheme, and we also had some individual shots and were let loose around the house to get some selfies and videos! The purpose of the shoot was to advertise the AMAZING dresses Kirsty has got in for the 2018 prom season – not to mention the gowns for balls, pageants and the cutest NYE cocktail dresses!

There’s so many images coming but I’ll attach a few I got from the day. I did not want to take them off! PS keep scrolling RIGHT down to the bottom to see the highlight of the day that I promise you’ll love!

Okay so as promised – the highlight of the day…..

If you know me, you know I’m a huge dog lover and the Granthams have a GORGEOUS French Bull Dog called Blue! He kept escaping from the garden so the team were constantly running round trying to catch up (turns out he’s allowed out and doesn’t run away haha) but he also stole a load of sausage rolls which made me love him even more!

So on our lunch break… I went missing… they found me crouched down in the kitchen giving him all the love!

Look how much he’s enjoying it!

Miss Scuba UK: Red Carpet Ready Photoshoot

Today, I’ve taken a road trip down to Lincoln for a very glamorous Photoshoot. In August I will be taking part in the annual Miss Scuba UK pageant. It’s way more than your standard beauty pageant – the main focus of the competition is marine conservation and taking care of our beaches and sea life. On the night, we will find out the top 5 in no order, who then go to Cyprus AND Egypt to scuba dive and for a girly holiday! The ultimate winner will then be decided and will head out to Malaysia for the Miss Scuba International pageant! This is an amazing opportunity and I’m so privileged to be part of it. 

The shoot was at Red Carpet Ready – an amazing dress shop that’s stocks a wide array of beautiful designer gowns and dresses. When I say amazing – I mean you just would not believe it! It’s set in beautiful grounds and has three separate sections, each full of the latest designs. There’s something for everyone. 

   
    These are just a few snaps of what’s on offer at Red Carpet Ready!   

  A group image of some of the finalists. Can you spot me? 
   

   This is the stunning Pia Michi gown I wore for the shoot – it’s understated but still glam due to the intricate sparkles and unique back. This particular gown is slightly too big on me, but you can imagine the amazing silhouette that this dress can create. 

We had a few group shots in different locations on the grounds. The sun was out in full force and my sensitive eyes were watering all over the place so I hope my images don’t come out all squinty! It was a great giggle though. I can’t wait to see the images when they’re released – keep an eye out on Instagram! 

You can purchase these gowns and many, many more at Red Carpet Ready or visit the store if you’re ever in the Lincoln area. They’ve just had a new showroom fitted with crisp white walls and marble floors with stunning big mirrors – perfect for a few selfies! 

Big thank you’s go out to Jaime-Lee, Jill and Sue (and the rest of the team) at Miss Scuba UK, Kirsty and the ladies at Red Carpet Ready, Tom Parnell – the brilliant photographer for the day, all of the girlies and of course my Mum for driving the long journey for me!
