Its not every day you have the chance to have a Gothic bride shoot but the recent UK Wedding Photographers shoot gave us just that opportunity. It was so much fun to try different things and the models were fabulous and open to all sorts of poses. We got some great shots and had fun with some role play – thanks for being such sports. The graffiti wall in Leeds and the woods in Adel made for some unique and contrasting images. Our thanks to the models, makeup artists and florists for their participation in this Gothic bride shoot.
Models: Cherrie Lynne, Abi Thirkhill and Alex Van Steen
Makeup Artists: Monica Duong Jewellery: The Silver Jewellery Store Florist: Teazles Florist, Birstall
Wow what a two day shoot we had in Leeds! Gorgeous brides in beautiful dresses, adorned with beautiful silver jewellery, all for one blessed groom. So much to share it’ll probably take a few blog posts to cover it all!. So part one i thought I’d just share some of the background shots to the day. The MUA’s the dresses and the accessories for the brides being prepared at Haley’s Hotel in Headingly before heading to the idyllic and historic St John the Baptist Church in Adel.
