Last summer I really wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone. I wanted to do something which I didn’t feel too confident with and ended up organizing 2 styled photoshoots.
It was stressful, but my god was it worth it! It was so much fun and I was very happy with the results as I felt the hard work had paid off.
These kind of shoots. always colaborating with other local suppliers, are a great way of being as creative as I want without the pressure of it being an actual wedding. It got me excited of what I could achieve and I will hopefully be organizing some more in the near future.
I found out about a fab location near where I live in Worthing; it used to be a working garage but after the owner died, it was left to decay. Eventually it was purchased and turned into luxury accomodation, but the new owners/developers kept the stunning art deco look.
I borrowed two stunning dresses from a beautiful boutique in the Brighton and Hove area. If you are looking for original vintage and breathtakingly beautiful wedding gowns at very reasonable prices, you just have to go and see Heather! Her dresses are out of this world, and her love for what she does really shows on the way she manages her business. If you go and see her you won’t be dissapointed!! She had 2 dresses which fitted the theme beatifully!
For the Bouquets I really fancied something different. Not flowers but something quirky, which would hopefully blend in with the theme… I found just the thing and Mandy very kindly lent us her beautiful handmade button bouquets.
For the make up I knew exactly who I needed, Chelle had done a such a great job in a previous styled shoot I just knew she would nail the 50’s look. And she did! If you need a make up artist for your wedding, or for any special event I would highly recommend her.
For the hair I asked the very talented Kerry and she managed to create 2 beautiful does for our ladies.
I couldn’t have done it without the help of the wonderful Hannah who was incredibly helpful!
I wanted to create a 50’s wedding look, with a bit of rock and roll thrown in and decided to go for a same sex wedding theme to add a modern touch!
This shoot was published in the wonderful Pink Wedding Magazines which is the leading gay wedding magazine for those wanting to plan the perfect same sex wedding and get inspiration!
I won’t bore you with any more details, and instead will leave you to enjoy the photos we took that day!
