Even if the answer to that question was no we’re pretty sure this epic styled shoot is going to change your mind. From the unique wedding car and rustic barn wedding venue to the brides blush pink wedding dress and grooms burgundy suit every inch of this inspo, oooozes edge!
“I know these amazing cars are not something many people have tucked away in the back of their garage and restoring one may be a stretch too far for many.” Began photographer Marie. “But don’t despair, there are some beauties already out there, especially if you visit your local classic car shows or enthusiast rallies. If it is your dream to have such a four wheeled statement at your wedding then it’s a great place to start. and exactly how. This stunner is a personal project of a Groom I photographed a few years ago.”
“The inspiration for this shoot came from a Katie, a celebrant based near Nottingham who wanted to create some awesome content for her business ‘Rock My Ceremony’. It was always going to be a glam shoot, with an edgy, alternative look. The styling would be both full on glam, but with some romance included too.” Marie told us.
“As the photographer I joined the shoot soon after the idea was penned and the venue was the first thing to sort. Manor Farm in North Notts is a fantastic DIY wedding venue and sandwiched between the M1 and A1, it is perfect for anyone wanting to have complete control of their wedding day and try something a little different.”
“A colour theme of black, blush pinks, gold and burgundy was soon in place and what soon followed was some amazing wedding suppliers all coming together, keen to stretch their creative wings and try something a little different.”
“The first look for Lauren (our gorgeous model bride)was true to the theme and more ‘alternative’. Wearing an amazing, multi tonal blush pink tutu created by Hannah at From The Dressing Up Box, teamed with a bespoke painted leather jacket from Mama Inc (through Nora Eve) and the look was finished with some incredible lace boots from House of Elliot.”
“For our groom, Michael he needed to have a look which was in keeping to the theme and he wore a velvet, burgundy jacket over black trousers and white shirt from Asos. We located the most post-apocalyptic location on the periphery of the venue and into which we added the Hot Rod for a strong visual contrast and then the look was complete with the inclusion of our model couple. The results speak for themselves.”
“The incredible floral creations were from Sweetpea andThyme and taking inspo from a strong emerging trend for lots of dried grasses which were mixed with fresh florals to create a very different look. Pampas grasses were also dyed to compliment the colour choices. The bouquet was wild with added volume, including foliages such as Ruscus, Dark Pittosporum and Grevilea.”
“For venue and table styling, Bridget from Keith Woods Weddings andEvents created an opulent table scene using colours from the theme, bold studded napkin rings, glass studded platters with burgundy plates beneath and gold cutlery. The Menus and Table Numbers were designed by Alf and Alba and followed the colour theme and adding a vinyl record detail to echo the rock music theme. We even sourced some fantastic custom etched gold plectrums which we used as table confetti.”
“The cake was a strong geometric creation from Storybook Cakes which followed an emerging trend for bold geometric shapes. Using black, gold and cream and styled with dried and fresh flowers the look blended really well with the overall look.”
“For the second look Lauren wore an incredible dress from Nora Eve with sleeves, which are a proving to be a popular choice for Brides. It was amore romantic look and Michael also wore a more traditional tux with bow tie.”
“As the photographer on the shoot it was a joy to work with some incredible creatives and see the talents merge on the day to create such a bold vision”
