“We wanted COLOURS”, she said. “We also wanted a location that would have character. We found this old factory with no roof and instantly loved it! We wanted to have different vendors that we trust working on the photos. I had long fluid dresses in mind which would be in opposition to the structure of the factory which was very square, hard and partially destroyed.”

Wild as Wind: An Ballet Bridal Editorial

Wild as Wind An Ballet Bridal Editorial (46)

Are you ever just tempted to run away to a beautiful, secret location and say your vows? I bet a lot of you have actually! If so, you’re going to be totally inspired by this ‘Wild as Wind’ editorial which was sent in from New Zealand.

“We were inspired by movement, texture, nature and a graceful pink haired tattooed ballerina as wild as wind”, said photographer Dawn Thomson. “This is the tale a ballerina bride who finds solace in movement and music and runs to the mountains in the flow of the wind anticipating a reunion with her lover.”

“Our ballerina awaits her lover in an abandoned house… She writes him love letters…. Plays music and yearns to be by his side. She runs to the mountains to dance up a frenzy of excited anticipation to see her lover again…”

“We used an old worn out house that had heaps of history and character”, she continued. “The magnificent property has the most incredible views and initially this was the inspiration for the shoot. As the photographer I have always wanted to photograph a ballerina and this seemed like the perfect excuse to do so. It just so happened that our ballerina had pink hair and the most amazing tattoos! We visualised our ballerina dancing in the mountains with the wind in her hair and skirts as she dreamed of marrying her lover.”

The theme of this shoot was Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk with a little bit of high fashion thrown in for good measure.

“I think Rock n Roll gets boxed in too easily”, explained photographer Phi Porto. “I am a former vocalist of a band, tattooed from head to toe and I used to only wear all black t-shirts and shorts. I am now married, run a business and I love men’s fashion, particularly wooden bow ties. I don’t believe I am any less punk rock or Rock n Roll. I still have the same passion and wanted to exemplify that through this shoot.”

“I wanted to inspire Rock n Roll brides to be themselves and not be boxed in by any title. The models for this shoot have completely different lives but from the blue hair of the bride to the sailor jerry style tattoos on the groom, they are still Rock n Roll!”

“I had dreamed up a shoot on a mountaintop, post-hike and surrounded by amazing views, but thanks to a crazy flood warning, we had to make a last minute move to a nearby forest”, explained photographer Caitlyn of CJK Visuals. “The most amazing part was that we had a random black horse just walk up in the middle of our shoot! It couldn’t have been more perfect imperfect timing.”
