At the end of June, Mr and Mrs Unique Magazine featured an edgy boho industrial shoot I was involved with earlier this year. I am exceedingly proud of this shoot and the sister shoot, which is being featured in Wedding Ideas Magazine as Jacqui from Print for Love, Gemma the photographer and I also styled it! The full feature can be seen on Mr and Mrs Magazine blog.
"The palette was a moody palette of teal, copper and dove grey tones, with soft blush, peach and apricot accents. Our aim was to weave industrial elements with effortless, timeless romance and quirky contemporary details - creating an edgy, bohemian style which both complemented and contrasted with the surroundings. Inspired by our tattooed model Vicky, whose individuality and personality shone through and our surroundings - an industrial mill, the working studio of 'Print for Love' - we decided to create an inspirational shoot which brought together the many diverse personalities of the team involved. With such an eclectic mix of creatives and by using unconventional styling props such as the paper hummingbird by artist Jack McLaughlin and burnished steel cages we managed to combine the quirky with conventional- beauty with attitude! The use of bold copper foiled brush strokes softened by calligraphy adorned the stationery suite designed by Print for Love Letterpress and set the tone of the day. Pompom Blossom created the backdrop of hand-dyed tissue tassel garlands, along with the hand-dyed silk fabric and silk ribbon Our ‘real models’ Victoria & Helen were dressed by Areles Bridal. The copper brush strokes on the cake by Flecks’ added another metallic touch and continued the theme. Bespoke handcrafted stacking rings by Notes Jewellery, in sterling silver and 9 carat rose gold were engraved with initials and hidden messages Gemma McAuley’s relaxed, creative and contemporary style was perfect for capturing the eclectic vision for the shoot."
