This is something new for us as we don’t usually do styled shoots. Being documentary wedding photographers we don’t like to pose people but we’d been talking to some really great local suppliers and we’ve always thought styled shoots look like they could be fun.
Dunedin Country House in Patrington is one of our favourite Hull wedding venues. Not only do we love it’s boutique style and decor, the staff are great; welcoming, professional yet totally relaxed and the service on your wedding day is actually amazing…
As you can see above, it’s a bit different to the usual hotel style rooms found at a lot of venues and each room is totally different.
Bows Hair based in Anlaby have a very specific talent for making beautiful hair and makeup look totally effortless. Jenni wouldn’t have been without their advice for our wedding day (and in general, her hair looks ace) and we have lots of brides who would certainly say the same, these ladies are very talented.
Amore Headwear is based in Beverley, Joanne creates bespoke jewellery pieces, here’s a selection of some of our favourites 🙂
Then there’s the inspired Love Blooms based in Beverley. Julie is really innovative with her designs and choice of colours. We love the bright styling with quirky details. If you’re looking for something really unique for your flowers, Julie has so many great ideas that she would love to bring to life.
Last but not least, we need to thank our beautiful models Holly and Tanya who were so incredible on the day that we took them to dope burger for tea!
The only thing we had in mind when putting this shoot together was fun, we wanted to see what would work and what might not in a styled wedding shoot. If we’re being really critical it’s a little rough around the edges but that’s us all over, we love a bit of chaos and letting things work themselves out organically.
Even when we plan things, we just can’t seem to get away from a bit of reportage photography. 🙂
