It was only a matter of time until someone created a photo shoot inspired by Solange’s wedding to Alan Ferguson. As soon as I saw that hair, that jumpsuit and those adorable images of her on a bicycle, I knew it had to happen!
Put together by wedding photographer
John Bello, the shoot took place in Vancouver. “We were obviously inspired by Solange Knowles’ wedding”, he told me. “We wanted to shoot something that would appeal to the more unconventional bride. From a plexi pillar dessert table to baby’s breath and keeping the colour scheme to all white and cream. We wanted to capture a very fresh, modern but romantic wedding.”
“Instead of the traditional white wedding dress, our model Eve is wearing a beautiful white pant suit which we got from Topshop. Her outfit consisted of high waisted cropped pants along with a sophisticated white boxy crop and a matching blazer. To add a little pop of colour, she is wearing metallic pale pink, pointy toe flats.”
“The shoot took place underneath the Burrard Street Bridge. The simplicity of the stone washed wall with large boulders were perfect and kept everything very neutral and fresh.”

Dr Who Wedding Inspiration
August 31, 2013
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."
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!
Voodoo and Pagan Witch Wedding Shoot
Paola De Paola
October 1, 2014
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."

Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Miller’s Wedding

So I haven't actually got the scoop of the century, sharing unseen photos from Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller's wedding... but I've got the next best thing! This shoot, photographed and styled by Claire Macintyre Photography, has got to be one of the closest homages to this iconic wedding that I've ever seen!

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.
Surrealist Pineapple Wedding Shoot
Kama Catch Me
March 1, 2014
Well, that's a blog title I never thought I'd write! I have to admit, when I received these photos from Fiji based (but will travel!) wedding photographers Kama Catch Me, I was initally dubious. "Oh this will be a weird one", I thought. Well, I actually wasn't wrong... but it's weird in the most awesome way!
