This incredible fashion editorial was shot on the
Creole Queen Paddlewheel for the winter issue of NOLA Wedding Guide. The shoot was inspired by Jules Verne, the 19th century and steampunk.
“Jules Verne’s novels were rich with extravagant voyages and adventures set in the romantic Victorian Era,” the team explained. “This was the era of the newly invented steam engine and through-railways and steamships, which opened up the opportunity for leisure travel and adventure for the first time.”
“What could be a better metaphor for wedding planning and a marriage than an extraordinary voyage? Isn’t that what you, the bride, is embarking upon? Your upcoming marriage is the beginning of a journey filled with delightful adventures, and of course romance!”

Thanks to everyone involved for sharing this shoot with us today.

Clockwork Heart & Eyelash Dream: A Victorian Steampunk Shoot
June 26, 2012
Time travel. Steampunk. Victoriana. Turn of the century industrialism. If you love any of these things then you're going to die over this shoot, sent over from Ireland by the fabulous Chemistry Photography.
"We put together this shoot with an amazing crew of 20 creatives including designer Alice Halliday (she's the glowing goddess who designed Florence Welch's infamous cape), Pearl & Godiva (styling genius and vintage hire guru), and rockstar make-up artist Kathryn O'Neill (she rocks the wedding world and all the Irish mags)", photographer Kait told me.
Bohemian Steampunk Wedding Inspiration from France
June 7, 2014
If I'm being 100% truthful, I've been a little bit over styled wedding shoots for a while now. Some of you might have noticed that I share less and less of them on my site these days. In the most part it's actually because I simply have too many awesome weddings I want to share instead (yay!) but in others its because there really are a lot of boring shoots being produced. Harsh but true!
Lemony Snicket & Steampunk Inspired Wedding Shoot: Lydia & Brett
May 11, 2014
This shoot was set up by photographer Julie of Jewel Photography who was inspired after watching Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events! "As a photographer I look at everything with an open mind and at everything for inspiration", wrote Julie. "Years ago I was watching Lemony Snicket and I fell in love with the costuming, design and photography in the movie. I cataloged in my brain for use down the road. Well the moment finally came, I knew I wanted to to do a steampunk styled photo shoot!"

A little bit fashiony, a little bit boudoir - this Steampunk themed photo shoot sent me weak at the knees! Inspired by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, New Orleans and Dita Von Teese, photographer Kamila couldn't wait to put together a shoot like this.
