This shoot is certainly going to appeal to all you Whovians out there. Come on then, tell me, who’s having Dr Who influences in their wedding? “Ever since I became a fan of Doctor Who I’d wanted to do a styled shoot and combine it with one of my other favourite things in life: weddings, of course!” explained photographer
Kat Forsyth. “I’d seen a couple of Who-themed shoots around, but I always felt that none of them got it quite right; they were either really pretty, floral and sparkly, or a little too much like a cheesy costume party. I was sure that by assembling a hand-picked team of Doctor Who geeks (read: experts), we could come up with a shoot that not only captured the quirky and fun aspect of the show, but also the atmosphere.”
“There was one important aspect we had to get right”, she continued,” and that was was the venue. Because Doctor Who travels so much through time periods, I wanted somewhere that looked timeless, so that it could appear to be anything from an old Victorian building to a futuristic space in New New London. The Tobacco Dock in East London proved to be perfect for our needs, with its concrete walls, brick archways, and glass ceilings.”
Be sure to check out the fun video too. It documents the story the suppliers come up with for the shoot!

Spooky ‘Three Brides’ Wedding Editorial
January 12, 2014
It's not often that I feature styled wedding shoots these days, quite simply because I have so many incredible real weddings to share with you! However when photographer Gary of Marshal Gray sent over this 'three brides' editorial that he shot at Belt Craft Studios, I had to bend my rule. I love the style of this session, especially how odd and slightly creepy it all is. This is certainly not something I see very often in wedding photography.
Creative Without Any Restrictions: Alternative Bridal Shoot at Belt Craft Studios
August 10, 2013
When some of my favourite wedding suppliers get together for a shoot at one of my favourite locations (we shot the Crown and Glory headpieces in the same studio!) I get very excited indeed... and even more so when they ask if I'd like to feature the results afterwards! Wedding photographer Lisa Jane explains, "Elbie posted a picture on twitter one day, asking if anyone wanted to get involved in an inspiration shoot inspired by it and I took one look and jumped at the chance to collaborate with her. Within minutes we also had the lovely Jo from The Couture Company offering to design us a dress for it and Abby From Cherished Vintage offering headpieces. It was amazing to be able to get creative without any restrictions. Everyone let their imaginations run wild."
Flower Beard Bridals with Harnaam Kaur
June 30, 2015
Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which meant she started growing a beard from aged 11. Battling to remove her hair every day, and bullied at school, she started to self harm and considered suicide. Harnaam is now a body-confidence and anti-bullying activist and she fully embraces her unique look and hopes to encourage others to do the same. So when this bridal shoot using Harnaam as the model was submitted to me I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement!

Paola De Paola

An Angry Birds Inspired Wedding Shoot
September 12, 2012
Angry Birds. It might not strike you as an obvious wedding theme but this shoot goes to prove that inspiration can be found everywhere!
"We've been working on this idea since last Fall", wrote photographer Brent of Live View Studios. " Our idea was for a wedding shoot inspired by the popular Angry Birds game, but to be done in a very classy, non-cartoony way. We wanted to bring our brand of very rustic, organic and indie vibes into it."
"To our surprise, and considering how popular the game is, we hadn't seen anyone else doing this idea" he continued. "So basically we wanted to be first! When the idea came to us initially, we looked around and found a few groom's cakes & details based on the game but nothing that incorporated it in as an overall wedding theme or shoot. We decided to use elements creatively instead of basing it only on the characters. Keeping the elements of stone & brick, glass, wood & feathers, and the primary color palette in mind, we set out to design a rustic couture wedding with slingshot pens, tumbled concrete structures, a gold crown & golden eggs and a treasure chest for notes written by guests."
