Musings: Mystere in the Night

May 30th, 2012 – 1 Comment

You know I love my outdoor, romantic garden, rustic ranch, dreamy under-the-petals, walking-through-the-meadows weddings…well, here’s a little trip to the dark side! Some of our UK friends decided to style a shoot with none of the usual “bridal” elements…no cake, no antique linens, no chandeliers hanging from an oak tree. I do love those things, but I have to say, these images featuring my Mystere gown are pretty hot, no?!

Nick TuckerThis shoot was very much a full blown collaboration with Hannah Gooch of The Ebury Collection.  We wanted to create a darker, moodier, edgier, more overtly fashion shoot, than maybe your typical bridal stories.  Bright, sunlit shots of model brides tripping along flowery pathways have become very familiar lately and we wanted to do something a little different.  Not least because when I shoot weddings myself the brief is always really to capture the warm, light, radiance of the day (as of course it should be).  So here was a great chance to go ‘off-trend’ and do something unusual, and have fun!

Hannah GoochI’ve worked on styled shoots before and wanted to try and create something completely different, with a moodier feel and much more editorial and fashiony. I’ve admired Nick Tuckers photography for some time so thought I’d approach himabout a collaboration and was delighted when he agreed!

The Mystere gown is part of my“Rock n Roll Bride” collection, so she is no stranger to a good party and some smudgy eyeliner. Of course, she also makes for the most romantic of weddings, but you all know that…
