As an ex goth, I can’t help being attracted to dark art in general”, began Lauren of French Made, who provided the cakes for this shoot. “Plus my recent obsession with the series called ‘Vikings’ and their Pagan way of life gave me inspiration. I was lucky enough to find a fabulous team of wedding suppliers as ready as I am to push the boundaries and willing to get involved and create the most eye pleasing alternative bridal styled shoot.”


“I chose to cover my tiered cake with ivory icing and skin tone butter cream as well as adding fur, leather, antique styled lace, feathers, bronze coloured studs and a Pagan symbols charm. My naked single tier decorated with a badger skull and a flower which was sitting on a wood stand reflected the rustic aspect of the shoot.”


“There have been quite a few woodland themed shoots around the blogs recently so for this one, the idea was to create a darker, more dramatic Voodoo feel using emblems such as skulls and black candles but keep a Mother Earth and purity vibe to it by for instance, getting the models to wear ethereal, beautiful Days of Grace vintage lacy dresses.”


“Lou from Beyond Vintage expressed her love of the occult and a passion for tarot through carefully selecting her finest vintage props. She managed to show how these can be adapted to many different themes. For flowers we had deep red roses, almost black calla lilies and deep purple dahlias.”
