Close your eyes and imagine an English seaside town. A soft sandy beach, rock pools, fairground rides and Mr Whippy ice cream. The muffled sounds of the 2 penny drop machines and chining music escaping through the open doors of the arcade. The smells of the sea, of fish and chips, of hot fresh doughnuts…every detail right down to the perpetually hungry seagulls! Well, that’s Margate!
And with Margate’s theme park, Dreamland, newly refurbished and open for business, where better to celebrate with Hello Miss Jordan for her reaching 50,000 followers? Dreamland was everything we were looking for: colourful, retro, nostalgic and loads of fun!
I’ve worked with Jordan before and she’s always such a good laugh and all-round lovely person (not to mention an absolute dream to photograph). With videography by the uber-talented Russell from RKN Aerial Imaging, the three of us had an absolute blast and actually did the whole shoot in just under an hour!
The feel of the shoot was summed up by the dress, a fun pink number by Giambattista Valli from their H&M collaboration and balloons provided by Think Bubble Party
Shooting Jordan in her wonderful pink dress against the joyful backdrop of Dreamland was the perfect celebration of this huge milestone in her career and I couldn’t be happier for her.
