On the 1 December, the Hello Magazine crew came round our house to do a at home feature with us. It was such a fantastic day.
They waited for the girls to get back from School to do their photos, which worked out perfectly. It gave the the Hello team time to set up the house with a lovely Christmas theme. For me to get my make up and hair done. For the stylists to bring in the amazing clothes, shoes, hats bags. For the photographer to set up. And for Rosalyn Powell to do her interview with us. Brilliant interview.
Sally Cairns, the hair and makeup artist is amazing. I’ve known Sally for along time, it was so lovely to see her. She works her magic on me every time.
Sally, amazing make up. Behind the scenes. Love it.
Trevor Leighton the photographer has been shooting Jim and I for a long time. It was so lovely to see him. He is a brilliant photographer.
I always get very exctited when Faye Sawer the stylist comes along. Faye brings along the most amazing clothes. There were so many, such a variety. I wanted to wear them all. It was like a dream. The first outfit I wore was so lovely. Great dresses, Phase Eight, French Connection, Next, Vivenne Westwood, childrensalon.com (for the girls) and many more. Not to mention the fantastic shoes.
Beautiful cashmere jumper from Joseph and shawl from New Look. Not forgetting the hat.
When Nell and Lizzie got home from School. They loved their bedroom even more. Lizzie having her hair done. Faye got in some wonderful children’s clothes. They looked adorable. Love working with our girls. They are the perfect models. So proud of them.
Love this photo of the girls and I. Angels in the kitchen.
I am wearing Badgley Mischka. The girls dresses are from Childrensalon.com, and the wings from Sainsburys.
Our first shot from Trevor. Behind the scenes.
I love trying on all of the beautiful dresses. Faye got some lovely sequin dresses from French Connection, as seen above in my Boudoir.
Another great dress from Very. The jewellery was from Justinecullen.com. I love it.
I was happy to see the feature in Hello Magazine. The Hello team did a fantastic job of making our house have the perfect look for Christmas. The perfect family shoot. Lovely dresses, fun, kisses, Christmas. Thank you to everyone who was on the team.
Loved doing the bathroom shot with Jim and the girls. The last time we did this was the girls Birthday shoot with Hello Magazine when they were one. Loved re-creating the fun bath scene. Time goes by so quickly.
