This shoot is certainly going to appeal to all you Whovians out there. Come on then, tell me, who’s having Dr Who influences in their wedding? “Ever since I became a fan of Doctor Who I’d wanted to do a styled shoot and combine it with one of my other favourite things in life: weddings, of course!” explained photographer Kat Forsyth. “I’d seen a couple of Who-themed shoots around, but I always felt that none of them got it quite right; they were either really pretty, floral and sparkly, or a little too much like a cheesy costume party. I was sure that by assembling a hand-picked team of Doctor Who geeks (read: experts), we could come up with a shoot that not only captured the quirky and fun aspect of the show, but also the atmosphere.”
“There was one important aspect we had to get right”, she continued,” and that was was the venue. Because Doctor Who travels so much through time periods, I wanted somewhere that looked timeless, so that it could appear to be anything from an old Victorian building to a futuristic space in New New London. The Tobacco Dock in East London proved to be perfect for our needs, with its concrete walls, brick archways, and glass ceilings.”
