An Alternative, Pink, Black & White Bridal Shoot With Smokin’ Hot Couple

Good afternoon ladies! I do hope your working week is going rather well and you’re managing to sneaky sneak some wedding planning in somewhere! Today I have a quirky, alternative pink, black & white inspired bridal shoot to share with you. What I particularly love love love about this shoot is that even though it’s alternative it still has a pretty, girlie vibe.

The models corset top is a little bit sexy and the pink tulled skirt is slightly anti-bride whilst also being princessy. Cute! The fact that our couple are a bonafide real couple [their chemistry is smokin’] makes this shoot all the more gorge.

Huge pat on the back to the team and an extra big pat for talented wedding photographer Jennifer Marino. Stunning work lady :))

An Alternative, Pink, Black & White Bridal Shoot With Smokin' Hot Couple

I came up with this ‘alternative wedding shoot’ idea with my lovely model Lexi. I always wanted to do something quite different so I thought why not!

I knew in my head what I wanted the photos to look like and represent and to be honest they came out pretty spot on! I must add I wanted a real couple too and thanks to Lexi and her boyfriend Iain they did brilliantly!

For the colour scheme I wanted pinks, whites blacks, anything that was a bit in your face but still nice on the eye ;) I did want Lexi to look a bit like a princess but still quite alternative! :) as for Iain’s look, well to be honest he just had to dress like himself and he fit the bill!

For the location, I have always wanted to shoot at Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire. I love how different some of the rooms are, very quirky! And the outside gardens are just beautiful! They were VERY accommodating and we all really appreciated their co-operation on the day.

As for the styling, my lovely mum made the bottom half of Lexi’s dress and I bought the corset from eBay! It’s amazing how they both fit together really well. It goes to show you don’t have to spend loads to make something awesome! :)

I love sweets! So they just had to be involved! Thanks to the amazing sweetest cart ladies ( Kirstie and Keeley ) they did a wonderful job and the cart looked amazing!

The props were made by me and my mum too, the bunting, pom poms, and weddings signs were all DIY.

I knew I couldn’t have a normal flower bouquet, I had to have something different yet beautiful and these button bouquets are absolutely stunning! Thanks to Devon Masters from The Button Room. I gave her just a few simple words to go by, like ‘pink, alternative, elegant’.
