Happy May Day Bank Holiday everyone! I hope you are having a nice chilled out...
Today I have a shoot to share with you that is a little out of the ordinary! Set at Deighton Lodge, York, Charlotte and her team have produced darkly luxurious inspiration for you today, filled with mysterious double exposure images, gothic detailing and a very close attention to lighting and detail. I love the images by Mr & Mrs Photography and styling by Redamancy
We really wanted to create a shoot that was a bit daring and a bit brave. 2017 is a year full of fierce and fun trends for brides and grooms to try, so we really wanted to play on this and create a shoot that was different, yet incredibly current and stylish.
Our concept was a Gothic Apothecary inspired by the Victoriana trend sweeping Pinterest and the rest of the styling world (just think of the programme ‘Victoria’). We really wanted to capture the sense of depth and drama of the era within this shoot. Gothic glamour with a mystical twist could only take place in one venue – Deighton Lodge. With its panoramic views over foggy fields and its statement steampunk chandeliers, it well and truly laid the tone for the apothecary set up.
We wanted to create a shoot that took a look at weddings and romance from a different perspective. Not everything to do with love needs to pretty and pink and delicate. There are so many different styles out there that couples should be encouraged to incorporate into their wedding day if they want to. This is a true inspiration shoot, as we set out to make it attainable enough for couples to at least emulate parts of it into their own wedding styling, if not the whole. We are so proud of the pictures and entirely achieved how we wanted them to look – with a massive amount of credit needing to go to Craig our photographer!
