Breathtaking bridal compacts for Stratton by Vanroe: Stunning new photos!

Ever tried to pose for a photograph you know will be published? Inspired by my visit to Stratton’s new owners last week, I decided to curate a range of Stratton compacts especially for brides. And to take some photos to show just how breathtaking they can look. So, overcoming the awkwardness of ‘modelling’ (I use the term loosely!), and assured of the excellent potential of airbrushing (for me, not the compacts!), I got in front of a camera. And here’s the wonderful result. The compacts look stunning! All are available on our brand new website, in the section “Most-loved gifts for Brides & Bridesmaids“. You can also read about the history of Stratton compacts here.
