Halloween Picnic Shoot Pulled Off in 24 Hours

Halloween Picnic Wedding_Barbara&Luisa-20

Most of the photo shoots you see featured on this, and other, wedding blogs will have had weeks, sometimes even months, of preparation. Coming up with a concept, pulling together a crack team of suppliers, finding a location and models, figuring out the perfect time to shoot… But not so for photographers Luisa and Bárbara who live in Portugal.

“Yesterday, a thought came to my mind”, Luisa emailed me on Thursday. “What if we could pull up a Halloween picnic wedding styled shoot in a day, and send it to Rock n Roll Bride?”

Working with friends in the Portuguese wedding industry, she then instantly went shopping, and started contacting friends who she thought could help her out. “We decided we were mad but that we wanted to try! It was 10pm and we went furiously shopping for flowers that had Halloween colours, props and we tried to find the best couple who would serve our inspiration the best. Mick, a body piercer, and his long time girlfriend Wanda, a burlesque dancer, said they would love to be our models (even though we scheduled the shoot for 6am the next morning!) since his birthday actually is on Halloween.”

Crimson Peak Inspired Victorian Gothic Bridal Shoot

Crimson Peak Inspired Victorian Gothic Bridal Shoot (2)

Happy Halloween! Today’s shoot is strictly Halloween themed, but I thought the Victorian gothic vibe would be inspiring none-the-less. I mean, who doesn’t love a good horror movie?

“Our inspiration was the new Victorian gothic horror/fairytale movie Crimson Peak“, stylist Jessica told me. “The key colours used in the film are red, blue, and black so we wanted to incorporate those elements into a styled bridal shoot. We wanted the photos to be romantic and a bit mysterious. We wanted to do something moody and interesting, that could be achieved on a budget.”

Crystal and Magic Inspired Witchy Bridal Shoot


The best Halloween movie of all time is arguably Hocus Pocus (“I had to wait three hundred years for a virgin to light a candle!”) so what could be more perfect for a Halloween themed wedding than one that’s inspired by witches and magic!?


Erica and her team at Mr & Mrs Unique clearly agree because they put together this fabulous photo session to celebrate the season! “I love Halloween and I wanted to create a bridal shoot that celebrated this bewitching time of the year”, Erica said. “The mood for the bridal shoot was effortlessly luxe with the witch-bohemian vibe, contrasting rich decadence and earthy decaying textures.”

The Raven

What could be the more perfect idea for a Halloween inspired bridal shoot than Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven?

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door;
Only this, and nothing more.”

Conceived by photographerClaire Pacelli, event designer Cathrina Dionisio, and florist Lee Forrest the shoot came about because of their shared loved of the macabre.

Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow, sorrow for the lost Lenore,.
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore,
Nameless here forevermore.

Upcycled, Abstract and Colourful Wedding Shoot

Peaktipis Styled Shoot_Red on blonde 36.

Centred around some seriously impressive tipis that were set up in the heart of the picturesque Derbyshire Peak District, this shoot was created to showcase colourful, fun and more abstract wedding styling ideas.

“The inspiration behind the shoot involved tapping into the emerging trend for paint splashes and abstract art and combining this with the concept of upcycling”, said Kimberley of Peaktipis. “We wanted to re-purpose everyday items to give them a new found use and beauty. The palette was fun, springtime, and candy sweet to contrast with the upcycled elements and also keep a romantic, feminine theme. We also incorporated neon signage as a statement.”

Chasing Waterfalls

Austrian waterfall bridals_The Ones We Love Photography (39)

When Austrian wedding photographer Kerstin came across this waterfall, the biggest in the country, she knew she wanted to shoot a couple there.

“I wanted to show that we have a lot of great places in Austria where you can shoot your wedding photos”, she told me. “I also wanted to have an alternative looking couple. She wore boots and an amazing dress from Katya Katya Shehurina and he was in jeans and a pink jacket. The backdrop seemed to suit them perfectly, it was extraordinary and wild!”
