When I saw inside of the Bell and the areas that we were able to use for the shoot, neon and glitter instantly came to mind. The stylish interiors consist of slightly industrial looking dark, raw wood including a sleeper style table, a neon light quote and metal railings. It sort of reminded me of a trendy London basement bar in the stable in particular so thoughts of disco lighting, smoke effects, glitter and sparkle would be great. The odd spot of neon here and there and the combination of this, with the glitter, created an exciting display and cut through the darkness of the surrounding interiors. I created an array of bits, from neon-glitter backdrop mobiles to snow globe favours and little neon glowing glass vials for the table set and more. We wanted to create a look that would suit the upcoming festive period but not limit it so with the gold foil curtains, wall of light and glitter blowing shots, there is a christmassy feel there without it being obvious and conforming. This shoot was a great one to be involved with and gave us all a real opportunity to try something new and work with slightly more edgy ideas.
