My good friend and amazingly talented London photographer Paola De Paola, and I had been planning a bridal styled shoot for a long time. We were joined later by an awesome team of suppliers such as Natalie and Guy from Curious Fair, with helped out with the planning and the props and the styling on the day and many many more! Kiki the fabulous organiser of Chosen Wedding Fair loved the idea so much she asked us if she could use the images and video as a promotional shoot for her 27th April lovely event. We said ‘OH YEAH!’ 😉
‘The Chosen Wedding Fair was created in 2012 by a frustrated bride-to-be, and has steadily been growing as it aims for a fresh and fun way to discover and design your own unique personalised wedding. Chosen work very hard to handpick each exhibitor and they are fortunate enough to showcase excellent talent from bespoke designer makers and vintage aficionados in the surrounding area.’
The shoot that took place at alternative wedding venue, a Victorian warehouse Brixton East showcases a modern vintage romantic ‘secret wedding’ which offers a fresh approach just like the Chosen Wedding Fair aims to do. “We really wanted to show how contemporary styling could bring a different look or edge to a vintage styled wedding, offering an alternative fresh look to what is already lovely, but may have been done before. Finding Brixton East was a fantastic part of the journey in planning the shoot, the brickwork walls, wooden flooring and rustic feel set the perfect backdrop for the playful ‘secret wedding’ shoot bursting with colour, excitement and a lot of tiny details to bring the wow factor to life.”
And here are the results. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Wow, wow, WOW!
