Heartbreak Hotel: An Elvis & Priscilla Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Elvis & Priscilla Wedding Shoot

Jacket: Next Shoes: Faith Bodysuit: ASOS Rings: House of Bourgeois from Folly Boutique

One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.

Festive Farm Wedding… With Reindeer!

As soon as I saw this festive photo shoot, complete with real life reindeer, I knew I had to share it. With Christmas just around the corner (less than a week to go!) it made me feel all warm, snuggly and super, duper excited for the big day!

Photographer Kellee Quinn from the south west of Scotland told me all about it. “Harelaw Farm was the perfect choice of venue (it’s where I’d get married if I hadn’t shimmied up the aisle with my husband already) and it also just happens to be next door to this new wedding venue (their first wedding is April 2017)…. a Reindeer Farm!! ‘Pogo’, who is in the shoot, is more like a pet and the owner of the biggest antlers I’ve ever seen.”

Rainbow Roller Disco Brides

Spray paint… glitter… neon… If you like all things colourful then you’re going to adore this roller disco inspired bridal shoot!

“The theme of this shoot was a mash up of all of our favourite things”, said photographer Jessica Withey. “That meant glitter, rainbows, unicorns, balloons – like a dream you had when you were 4!”

“This shoot derived after a long year of working in the wedding industry. Each of us involved had a desire to shoot something ‘for us’, in our style – without being paid, and without a style brief from a client. Working in the wedding industry you wind up seeing a lot of weddings and after a while you’re ready to see something dramatically different. So we decided to shake some traditions up and get creative. Why can’t a bride wear a glitter parting in her hair?”

Alternative Transgender Wedding Shoot

I’m not sure if I’ve seen a wedding shoot with a transgender model before which is why I am so excited to share this one with you today. Photographer Meghan Melia explains the inspiration behind this shoot.

“While brainstorming for this styled session, I knew I wanted to include diversity. Bringing the focus of the story around a transgender couple was something that was near to my heart, and I wasn’t alone. This was something that was important to everyone participating.”

“Seth began his journey from female to male in December of 2015. I was following his updates
and progress on social media and I remember feeling so deeply excited for him and his
acceptance of his true self. I was nervous reaching out to him, we had never met in person, but I
knew that this was important and I wanted to share images showing his accomplishments.”

Light V’s Dark: A Pre-Raphaelite Inspired Same-Sex Wedding Shoot

Inspired by pre-Raphaelite paintings, the gothic surroundings of Carlowrie Castle and the juxtaposition between light and dark, florist Lisa Gaston and MUA Laura Gray wanted to put together a shoot that depicted two beautiful brides with very different styles, but very much in love.

“Our initial inspiration came from the beautifully haunting images of fashion photographer Paolo Roversi and the romantic yet strong portrayals of women in pre-Raphaelite paintings”, explained Lisa. “We were also inspired by the surroundings at Carlowrie Castle.”

“We wanted to tell the story about two beautiful young brides who have run off to marry one another in their dream woodland setting. We picked two brides instead of a bride and groom as our models because we wanted one to be styled a bit more traditionally (our elegant, bouquet carrying brunette) alongside her edgier partner (our fiery, fierce red head). We felt there have been plenty of styled shoots depicting two ‘brides’ but not really any that focused on the real deal – two gorgeous girls, in love and actually marrying one another.”
