I thought that I would do a post of some of the pictures I took during the afternoon and leading into the evening so you could have a good look at the lovely dresses and jewellery. Provided by Pronovias and Mikimoto respectively dress and jewels were picked to suit each deb and I think the combinations worked out perfectly. So here is the prettyness itself:

Part of the reason behind my taking quite so many photos- there are many, many more where these came from- is that I will be using them in my Fine Art coursework. I'm going to be looking at John Singer Sargent's society portraits but also Degas' work which has a less set up, more personal feel. I'm really looking forward to doing an oil painting of this photo as I just love the fabric of this particular dress and how it falls, the pose is perfect too.
It's amazing to be a part of something steeped in so much tradition, and of course you don't get many opportunities to wear a wedding dress, particularly without finding a fiancé first! I had the most incredible time both at this event and throughout the London Season, and I'm really grateful to have been a part of it. In a few days I'll do another post with some photos from later in the evening.
