There is no mistaking the distinctive scent of lavender…the same can be said for it’s beauty. This was illustrated at Hayley Sparkes and Alex Roman’s stylised photo shoot.
Taking place at Lordington Lavender, it was the first photo shoot the couple had done together – not that you would have guessed as they both oozed an effortless serenity for each of their romantic shots.
Hayley Sparkes, a TV Presenter and Fashion Stylist, wore an elegant dress in photographs 2-20, 24, 87-98, kindly supplied by Haslemere Bridal Boutique. As well a TV Presenter and Fashion Stylist, Hayley is also a Make-up Artist, endorsing Fake Bake and XIP Professional, make-up.
Alex Roman meanwhile wore a smart suit by Fraser for Men in Petersfield and for photographs 34-73, Hayley modeled in an equally stunning dress from (British Home Stores), with flowers kindly donated by Global Flowers, Midhurst.
The magic of the day was enhanced with the amazing mix of weather. With everything from clouds, to rain, to sunshine…resulting in us being blessed with a beautiful rainbow photograph, which was shared on the Lordington Lavender Facebook, receiving hundreds of likes.
