Casablanca with Styled Contemporary Wedding Table


We are thrilled to have this shoot featured in Boho-Wedding Online Magazine.

Loved by Boho

I was given the opportunity to style a shoot for photographer Kate Hopewell-Smith, from any choice of film or book about a love story. After viewing Monika Dysons (bespoke interior designer) Moroccan style home in Berkshire I decided this would be the perfect location for the Casablanca shoot. At present this house is on the market – details below.

I feel very blessed and honoured to have worked alongside such talented and creative people in their own field, on this shoot.

Styling is my joy and comes naturally to me. It’s as if I am given a massive blank canvas on which I am free to express myself. Being an imaginative person and a colour enthusiast by nature, I find styling comes easily to me.

This is different to most shoots because of the use of noir lighting – Kate is a master of her art and this effect, which adds drama and takes one back to the 30s when cinema noir used long shadows effects in many of their black and white films.

This shoot was exceptional, because everybody that was on it contributed to the whole with their amazing talents, which you can explore further on their websites given below.
