Asylum Chapel London, Industrial Bridal Elegance
Sometimes opportunities arise and you just have to go for it. That was exactly my mentality when Becy asked if I would like to join her on a styled shoot that she had planned. The fact that I was a plane journey away from the planned location was not going to stop me... did I mention I have a fear of flying! I decided to fit the trip into 1 day ( in hindsight I should have maybe split it across two days as I'm sure we gave the people of London a giggle when Becy and I had to run with all our gear to get the train back home).
I have always heard people say that they were inspired by a space, as soon as I stepped through the doors of Asylum Chapel this couldn't have been more true. My heart skipped a beat, there is so much texture, variations of light and an incredible feeling in the space. When I arrived the team were busy prepping hair and makeup with Raid, setting up the amazing table and Becy, Ellie and I ran over ideas, general plan for the day and started scoping out spots for shots. I love that on a styled shoot you can really runaway with an idea and push your creative boundaries, its also a brilliant chance to bounce ideas and learn from each other ( thanks for the double exposure tips Becy!)
This shoot is full of deep tones, subtle pops of colour, rich textures and some seriously dark romance. For couples looking to do something a little different for their wedding you can be sure to get some inspiration here! The team behind the shoot were outstanding, I still pinch myself that I got to work with them all and photograph their talents. Please make sure to check out the teams sites as they are amazing at what they do!
