A Bright Blue & Tattoo Themed Couple Shoot – Gerard & Christine

I love bright hair colours, and Christine’s is fabulous (I’m getting quite a few brides with awesome hair recently). Honey & The Moon Photography put a call out on Twitter with some quite detailed specifications:

“Do you live in Belfast? Do you have electric blue hair? Do you have a lot of tattoos? Do you have a bf? Is he bearded? We need YOU!”

With a number of replies, married couple Gerard & Christine were chosen for this amazing supplier-filled shoot!

Honey and the Moon Photography’s ethos is to treat every single customer the same! We are everyone friendly, so no matter who you are, where you live or who you love, we love you! You do you and we’ll photograph you doing it!

We’ve always been of the opinion that styled photo shoots should be the most extreme example of what wedding vendors can do, because they are the catwalk of the wedding industry. The international fashion shows tend to inspire what is seen on the high street and don’t usually sell their outlandish designs to the general public, so we believe that is what wedding vendors should be doing! They should be inspiring their potential customers, showing their most creative side and selling their skills!

In September last year, we were to exhibit at the Quirky Wedding Fair at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast and after getting to know some of the exhibitors we decided to organise a collaborative effort and create something truly unique and well, quirky!

“Inspired by tattoos and all things alternative we asked the suppliers to go as nuts as they wanted as long as it had some relation to tattoos.”

They all jumped at the chance to show off what they can do!

The venue was the Hudson Bar, a relatively new bar trying to make it in a not so popular part of the city, Smithfield and Union Quarter. It recently had it’s windows smashed during one of the many summer riots, but thankfully everything has calmed down again – seriously Belfast is a great city!

We had a fantastic time during this photoshoot. We would like to thank all of the vendors that came together to complete what was a bloomin’ great collaboration!
