Today I get to share with you this gorgeous tattooed Tim Burton inspiration wedding shoot from a fantastic team including Erin of Way Out Wedding, The Couture Company, Nicki Feltham Photography and many more.
ERIN – WAY OUT WEDDING
The inspiration for the shoot was simply Tim Burton. The team members are all huge fans of the quirky gothic styling he brings to his films, and so our Pinterest planning board was fantastic!! We focused on his women characters to bring it into the bridal world, and we had a two-part story: one was how his blonde and innocent heroines (e.g. Johanna in Sweeney Todd) would dress for a wedding, and the other was how his anti-heroines (Victoria from The Corpse Bride, or Mrs Lovett from Sweeney Todd again) would style themselves.
The styling was bold and arresting – think skull jewellery, gothic dresses, in-your-face make-up, a dark denim coloured naked cake covered in vintage lace, gothic millinery, amazing flower crowns, a quirky venue, and taxidermy – and yet all the elements were perfect for an alternative wedding and not at all alienating for real life.
When Erin asked me if I’d like to do the photography for her Tim Burton styled bridal shoot, I jumped at the chance. Between us, we gathered together quite a strong troop of amazing suppliers and some absolutely stunning models, too, and on the day we both came up with some fabulous ideas for creative shots – we worked so well as a team.
