Wedding Photographer, Oundle, East Northamptonshire
Weddings … how I miss all the buzz, especially bridal morning preparations. I love to use my macro lens and capture the fragments of the dress fabric, jewellery, flowers, shoes and of course the perfumes :) All these little details not only make a nice memento to remember but also helps me to create some beautiful wedding book pages.
I went through several folders to select perfume images for this post and realised that most of my brides chose Coco Chanelle fragrance for their special day. I did try it in the past myself and I have to say it does smell divine. I do like the description of this scent from Chanelle “a luxuriant oriental symphony that gradually reveals its contrasting notes”.
Did you know that perfume is thousands of years old, with evidence dating back to Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Cyprus. One of the oldest uses of perfume comes from the burning of incense and aromatic herbs for religious services, often the aromatic gums, frankincense and myrrh gathered from trees. It did not take long, though, for people to discover perfume’s romantic potential and it was used both for seduction and as preparation for love-making :)
