On 26th April 2015, Lorie x exhibited at Spoken For, a new venture for Chosen Wedding in association with The Pavilions, Mile End Park. The venue was so bright and beautiful with huge windows that overlooked the wonderful green space and out of which you could watch all the new Spring ducklings trailing around after their Mommas. It felt like the perfect setting for Lorie x pieces, with the venue being so local to where we are based and a lot of our inspiration for the first collection coming from East London and nature.
Eulanda Shead was the photographer for the day and captured the location perfectly.
Along with meeting lots of wonderful bride-to-be’s, during the day there were two catwalk shows which took place along the outside of the space, against the bright windows – which felt made for it. Fellow exhibitor Sofia Plana took the following dreamy photos of our beautiful model Harriet Gordon from where the models left the backstage area to walk the length of the venue.
To complete the catwalk looks, Harriet wore two different flower crowns from the super talented Sophie & Luna (made with real flowers!); we have been in touch for a while and it was so lovely to see how well our pieces worked together. She carried a bouquet of peonies from exciting new florists Boom Blooms who made the creation with our gowns in mind.
Eulanda also took images of the catwalk and the models all together, before taking Harriet outside for an impromptu photo shoot – the pictures are so beautiful and fun – they also really capture how stunning for venue location was.
A huge thank you to everyone who made the day so special for us; the ones who captured it, the future brides we met, and all the other amazingly talented exhibitors! A special thank you to Kiki (Chosen Founder) for wanting Lorie x to be a part of this new venture and for always being so supportive of what we are doing xx
