I was sent two gorgeous dresses from Debenhams (size 12 Yay! Still can't believe I'm not a 16 anymore!) and had a make-up artist arrive at my house to get me ready for the photoshoot with photographer Thomas Skovsende. We were on location at a local hotel, Goldstone Hall.
Thankfully the weather was incredibly kind and so we didn't freeze or get rained on. Apart from my high heels sinking into the lawn, there were no problems and me and Ian enjoyed having a professional take photos of us. We've never had professional pictures taken of us, not even when we got married, so we enjoyed the experience. Thomas was an artist who knew exactly what he wanted to achieve and wasn't afraid to tell me I was looking "freaky" when a concept wasn't working! I don't know how his "au naturel" shots will look, he favours taking photos of real people doing real things rather than staging unnatural poses. (Very different to the Sun where it was all 'pop your hip' and 'bend that knee' etc)
Here's a couple of photos that were taken on my own camera of me and Ian in our outfits. I have to wait until the magazine comes out to see Thomas's shots of us.
The Top Sante magazine article is due to be published in February, all going well.
