Behind the Scenes of our Summer Beach Shoot


We were especially lucky with the weather on this one! I had been keeping my fingers crossed after days of rain that the sun was going to shine – after all who wants to go to the beach in the rain!


This shoot was very exciting as it marks the launch of our new playsuits and shorts – two styles which we have not featured before in our collection.


We were lucky enough to collaborate with Number 8 hairdressing in Truro and Francine Owens Make Up Artist so our day started in Number 8’s Salon early in the morning where models Suki, Cheveay and Alison had their hair styled into 1960’s look. We had decided on a 60’s theme for the shoot as this was something a little different for us and we thought worked well with some great inspirational vintage images from the era, which you can see here on our Pintrest


After our hair was prepared by Claire and the team at Number 8, Francine started on our make up – again following on with the 1960’s theme of big bold eyes. Francine used a lot of black and coloured eye make up and mascara to get the look that we wanted to achieve.


We then headed down to Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, firstly facing a battle with the number of steps to the beach with all of the outfits, photography equipment and surfboards which we had borrowed from Driftwood Surfboards in Newquay. When we reached the bottom of the stairs, we found the lovely beach hut which we had kindly been loaned the use of from Mandy who has decorated her hut in a lovely floral vintage theme!

We used a number of locations on the beach, from the Beach Hut, to in the sea, on the beach and on the rocks to take our photographs. as well as using the hand-crafted wooden boards from Driftwood Surfboards.

We matched the playsuits with bow belts from our collection and the shorts and skirts with bikini tops, crop tops and bra’s. They also look great with vest or plain tops and with jumpers or cropped jumpers for colder days! The skirts are also see worn with a selection of our short petticoats
