Erica from Mr & Mrs Unique is a styled shoot creative genius. Her shoots are always new and fresh, soooo, so colourful, and they push the boundaries without becoming inaccessible as bridal inspiration you can actually relate to and see yourself replicating. The suppliers Erica works with are at the top of their game, and each shoot I see just amazes me. This magical witch shoot sees deep tones alongside bright and sparkly ones, creating a lovely energy, which is set off to perfection by the beautiful light, captured by one of my favourite photographers, Sharon Cooper. And the Nevie-Pie cake is just a work of art…
The Story of the Shoot
The mood for the bridal shoot was effortlessly luxe with the witch-bohemian vibe, contrasting rich decadence and earthy decaying textures.
Amethyst crystals and rich coloured flowers worked alongside moss covered tables, feather print stationery, fabric draped walls, skulls and taxidermy.
I really wanted the girls to be feminine but to have a strong fashion edge, and this was achieved by mixing bridal dresses with a slight Victoriana look with leather jackets, temporary hand tattoos, and adding chunky dark stone and crystal jewellery.
Make-up was kept dark with smoky eyes and plum lips, and we styled the hair with side braids and hair hooks.
