Alice Through the Looking Glass Styled Shoot

"Through the Looking Glass Bridal Shoot"

Alice Through the Looking Glass was released last month (eek!! cannot wait to see it, especially as some of it was filmed near me in Gloucester Quays!!), so what better time to show you this wonderful styled shoot, conceptualised by floral stylist Lisa Carey of Most Curious Rose?

I love the subtlety of the styling – there are nods to the films, such as playing cards as part of the props, and the blue dress Alice wears but in this shoot it’s ombré, and the placeholder hearts – it’s not in-your-face or a fancy dress party: these are all things that you could use for your alternative yet still weddingy wedding. It’s a really accessible theme in the way that this team has executed it. Just brilliant!

The Story of the Shoot by Lisa Carey of Most Curious Rose

We thought it was time to update the ever-popular ‘Alice’ theme, and with the upcoming release of Through The Looking Glass, this was the perfect opportunity. We went back to the classic novel by Lewis Carroll for inspiration and added in some of our own quirky twists.

Rock ‘n’ Roll and Bowling: A Styled Shoot at Bloomsbury Lanes

bloomsbury-bowling-lane-london-wedding-028

When Lexi Fleming sent this shoot my way, she championed the venue of Bloomsbury Lanes greatly. And I can see why – this is the ideal place for alternative couples to hold their wedding! Fabulous backdrops inside and out, just perfect for photographs, is only the start of what you can expect…

And I love what the suppliers have brought to this shoot: one foot in traditional 1950s rock ‘n’ roll and the other firmly in the modern and edgy.

The Story of the Shoot by Edwina of Rosewood Cakes

We are a group of creatives who were looking to do an artistic shoot where we could really push the boundaries with our work. We were aiming for something opulent, extravagant and outlandish, and which icon could better convey this theme than Marie Antoinette: a woman who decorated her hair with boats and birds? All the individual aspects of the styling needed to be lavish in a manner befitting our muse. The end result was a fusion of rococo and gothic drama, brilliantly captured in contrasting light and dark tones by Tandem Photography. We have flower collars, suspended cakes and pure beauty in these photos.

Sumptuous period costumes were sourced from a theatre for authenticity, with heavy material ornately decorated with shimmering baroque patterns.

A Forest Bridal Styled Shoot

Sometimes, the best styled shoots happen when just the photographer, the girl, the dress and a make-up artist head out into a location and have spontaneous and unplanned fun…
