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.”

We’ve done a lot of wedding shows this past year and its one of my favourite things. I love getting out of the office, meeting you guys, seeing what other wedding suppliers are offering, swooning over pretty dresses… I mean it’s exhausting, sure, but what’s not to love about all that?

Which is why I am thrilled to let you all know that Rock n Roll Bride and Crown and Glory (we come as a package deal now it would seem!) will be taking part in the London A Most Curious Wedding Fair next Spring!

This colourful bridal shoot is so fun! You’ve gotta love model Amanda‘s pink hair (some loyal readers might recognise her as her unicorn wedding was featured inside issue 4!), the Couture Company dress and that fabulous Scottish landscape.

“When meeting with photographer Tub of Jelly, our conversation moved very quickly towards more fun and colourful options for the shoot –  candy pink thistles and tiaras delicately constructed from metallic florals”, explained stylists Ginger and Lime.
