Wedding styling: rock 'n' roll
Go all out for colour and attitude for a wedding with a rock 'n' roll twist!
“This shoot was all about having fun with lots of colour, unique elements and smiles all round,” says photographer and shoot coordinator Hannah Barnes. “I wanted to create a styled shoot so that brides-to-be who have an alternative style can see that they can still be a bride and have a fantastically beautiful wedding too.”
Moving away from traditional wedding styling, Hannah set out to create a look that had an edge, but an exuberance too. Achieving this with red and black accents and blooms in hues of pink, purple and crimson, there is a brightness and effervescence to the shoot, the darkness and urban edge illuminated with playful touches, statement lighting and crisp white gowns.
The hand-painted cake is a colourful masterpiece, artful in its design and unique with its hand-written message of long-lasting love. Eucalyptus leaves, foliage and red petals bring colour to the table styling, while balloons and neon lighting add to the fun factor.
The combination of strong eye make-up, red lips and flowing blonde locks – together with an oversized flower crown – make for a bold and beautiful bridal look. Then there’s the dresses: off-the-shoulder cuts, timeless lace and draped tulle toughened up with a personalised leather jacket and biker boots for a wedding day look with a whole lot of attitude.
