Who knew roadkill could be quite so glamorous?! Put together by photographer Lucy Davenport and taxidermist Eaton Nott, this elegant and editorial wedding shoot really caught my eye when it landed it my inbox.

“I wanted to create a shoot that was beautiful, yet alternative”, wrote Lucy. “I wanted to create images that the viewer would look at and think was a beautiful shot, then look closer and see the alternative wardrobe we’d used. I want people to be inquisitive about the images and what they show.”

“Taxidermy is a very niche industry, I approached Jess Eaton at Eaton Nott, one of the UK’s finest. We were so lucky to have her on board and allow us the freedom to use the pieces and interpret them in our own way.”

“I then approached Luella’s Boudoir for the dresses, as they stock a fantastic range of designers. I was looking for textures – lace, sparkle and layered fabric. A traditional wedding dress just wouldn’t have worked. Having worked with both Ana Ospina on make up, and Jo Irving on hair before, I knew that they would interpret the brief well and help me to push the boundaries.”

This shoot won’t be for everyone, but I for one think these images are stunningly beautiful. What do you think?

    Awesome. Jess Eaton and Roadkill Couture rocks every time. My highlight of last years Brighton Fashion Week for sure.

  2. That is pretty damn AWESOME! I think it would have been even cooler if the photos were taken out in the woods or someplace “wild”, but I do like the contrast of the clean blue background to make it couture.

  3. Beautiful indeed, and I am very happy about the ethical code of conduct. The contrast of the skulls on a dark skin would have been beautiful as well.

    Ahhh I adore this post! I studied taxidermy as body adornment for my degree. Great images, very captivating!

  5. Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments. It was such a fantastic shoot to work on and I am thrilled with the amazing response we have had.
    Thank you Kat for featuring, so excited to be a part of the Rock n Roll family.
