Special Announcement

Lovely photos by brilliant
In early December I styled for a photo shoot that I had been conceptualizing since September (literally).  The client; one tough cookie and hard critic.  Yup . . . . ME.
It’s pretty much impossible to style AND be the subject simultaneously, but thanks to our brilliant photographer Andy, the ideas and inspirations leapt to life through his lense.
I pulled out my props and set the scene and then promptly laid down on the job while Andy did all the work.  I am sure he enjoyed not having to share his viewfinder with me! 
Can’t thank him enough, this shoot was loads of laughs.  As I am not a huge fan of posting personal photos, I’ll let the readers who have interest head on over to brilliants blog post to see and read more!

Driftwood Wedding

TC Millwork was contracted to design and build a driftwood chuppah for a wedding December 28th at the Grace Bay ClubBrilliant did a gorgeous job of photographing the Tropicaldmc affair, please see all the gorgeousness on their blog; rustic-glam-beach-wedding

This four post arch is constructed of reclaimed wood, large pieces from a Haitian sloop wreckage, as well as curving branches of driftwood.  It may be decorated with a fabric canopy and flowers, as pictured above, or raw as these three images show.

It may also be set as a two post for a simplified look or smaller wedding, or in additional segments to canopy a dinner reception.  A variety of canopies are available in sheer organza, lace, or cotton.

This arch may be rented (installation and strike included) for any wedding or event, please contact us for rates and details!

Fashion Story – Styling Inspiration

Today we wrapped a shoot for  Discover Magazine to accompany an article I have written surrounding the TCI Top Model contest and winners. 

Brilliant and I were very fortunate to have a flawless Turks and Caicos day full of sunshine, blue skies, and bright water.

Here are a few of my inspiration boards in preparation of the shoot; runway images from the Top Model contest, saintgeorgefashionhouseThe-House-of-Jeritt, and  inspiration images from the uber amazing trendhunter.

Both designers and our entire production team were beyond pleased with the shoot, we are all very excited to see the images grace the glossy pages of the new issue but won’t get too excited as it will not be released until January!

Great job to our beautiful models and our hair and make-up artist Shenique Higgs, whose morning magic lasted all day long, despite 8 wardrobe changes, wind, and sweat!

Wed Day – Stephanie and Andy

Last month I posted about the styling I did for the wedding of stephanie-and-andy and asked readers to stay posted for more pro photos to come from brilliant.  Not only do I have a few photos from their big day, but I also have a teaser from their sail provo boat trip aboard the 52ft Arielle.
There is no better way to enjoy Turks and Caicos azure seas then out on the open water.  What a great way to enjoy the time with family and friends.
Speaking of friends, Stephanie is lucky to have these sweethearts.  Each and every one of them were wonderful to be around.
The private elevated beach at footprints on the beach villa makes a beautiful platform for a wedding.
These floating lily lanterns needed to be photographed at just the right time to get these incredible reflections in the pool.  Nice job Brilliant!

Wed Day- Veena and Litty

 While checking on Brilliant’s blog for stephanie-and-andy‘s posting, I ran across this gorgeous recent Turks and Caicos wedding.  Meet Veena and Litty; beautiful couple photographed beautifully in all their wedded bliss by Andy Mann.  They don’t call themselves Brilliant for nothing!

Both of the above photos were taken at the stunning coral house, every corner full of lush island inspired allure.
