Moving to Northern Ireland more than 2 years ago was a big change. As much as it was sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, it was exciting to start a new chapter in my life. I wish that I could say that settling in was easy but the truth is that it took some time. Have you ever heard a Northern Irish accent? :)
I find the locals friendly, talkative and fun to be around. But they are also creative and artistic people who love what they do and are often very good at it too! Photographers, designers, stylists, florists…there is so much talent around! I am very grateful that because of my calligraphy work I have had a chance to get to know and collaborate with some of these talented people.
I was thrilled when Laura, a stylist and wedding planner with Betty Williamson Weddings & Events, asked me to collaborate with her on a styled shoot back in July. The brief was Middle Eastern inspired boho, with a blush and earthy colour pallet. The shoot took place in Pineapple Studio in Belfast and was captured beautifully by photographer Kelly McAllister. When I received the photos I couldn’t have loved them more! The styling, the dresses, the light… in my opinion simply stunning.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
