Pixel & Hank Handmade Bridal Accessories

Photo shoots are one of my favourite ways to promote…well…anything (we all know I’ve done it enough!) So when this shoot, put together by etsy seller, Pixel & Hank, to showcase her gorgeous handmade accessories landed in my inbox I was sold. “All pieces are designed and handcrafted by me” designer Daisy told me. “I create fabric boutonnieres, funky veils and accessories. My products are different because they offer a twist on what is expected without being to outrageous.”

Agreed!

Couture Florals – Matching Flowers with with Ink

This funky photo shoot was set up by Michael Andrews and Flowers by Susan to showcase a different side to floral arrangements – matching them with your tattoos! They asked former client of Susan’s, Danielle (who is a tattoo artist) to model for them and they shot the series in her shop.

“With this particular shoot, we were deliberately trying to combine and match florals with ink.  Ink is beautiful! Michael told me.”Brides with ink + flowers that match = pretty damn cool.”

Messing About on the River with Joanne Fleming Designs

I wanted to start this sunny and bright Monday morning with a bit of dress ‘porn’ for you all. Who doesn’t adore looking at pastel colours, short hems and gorgeous attention to detail – all perfectly modelled by a stunning rockabilly-esque model? Exactly.

The dresses are all designed and made by Brighton based, Rock n Roll Bride favourite Joanne Fleming. They are (in order of appearance) Clothilde, Audrey and Pieretta. Joanne also made the pretty damn stunning headpiece to go with the Pieretta dress. I am a particular fan of this dress in fact – made from metallic silk organza, it has the wonderful quality of tarnishing slightly over time, so the dress starts to look properly vintage very quickly.

Joanne put the model in shoes by New Look which we found for just £20 and customised with swarovski crystals and the shoot took place on a friend’s house boat.

Victorian Nouveau

I love the modern twist on the distinctly Victorian styling of this shoot. Layered vintage fabrics, corsets and handmade jewellery have all been offset by different shades of modern red in the makeup and styling. The shoot took place at an old historic train station which, with it’s unique detailing really brought the theme together.

A Really Dramatic Impact

As a pale chick with brightly coloured hair myself, I felt an instant affinity to Cheyenne’s photo shoot. Photographer Sarah wanted to contrast with something dark and almost gothic is style as she knew this would create a really dramatic impact. “The black lipstick was definitely my starting point for the rest of the styling. Our first outfit was the lace trimmed bodysuit with the patterned tights and long coat. We shot in the late afternoon, but it was still over 100 degrees here (LA), she was a real trooper. I thought that this would be an interesting approach to a boudoir session with a bride not into the traditional lacy panty pics. I hope I find a bride who would be down for it! ha. All of the outfits were from my vintage and thrifted collection of pieces.”
