Gothic City Wedding - A Screw You To Covid
Here’s what photographer Hayley Gell told us about this gothic city wedding shoot:
“This styled shoot is my last f*ck you to covid, before we get back to normal! It started with the black wedding dress and developed from there. I wanted to use Sheffield, the city I live and work in, as the backdrop. I’ve always been drawn to the less traditional and more alternative styling, so I created a romantic and fresh take on a goth/rock wedding look. We used blush pinks and creams for all of the accessories to create contrast and found suppliers who complimented each other to bring this look together. Lucy & Dan are a real couple and were perfect for this shoot.”
Epic Wedding Accessories & Styling Gorgeousness
We love a bold accessory and this gothic city wedding is full of ‘em! We love the ‘F*ck You Covid’ wedding veil by Holly Winter Couture, hand-painted leather jackets by Abigail Laura Bespoke, and statement lace boots by House of Elliot. So badass! The bridal look is completed with a romantic halo headband by Garter & Veil and a blush pink wedding bouquet by Norris Floristry. MUA Eleanor Ryder created a statement eye and a soft, dreamy complexion for Lucy.
Streamers provided by Streamadelica complimented the elements from each of the suppliers and brought the look together. When shooting in a city environment, having styling elements on board like streamers or smoke bombs can really bring that extra ‘pazazz’.
Now, Covid, Bog off so we can get on with awesome weddings!
