So, who’s holding or attending a Halloween party this weekend? I’ve already seen some truly amazing outfits from people! I love Halloween & Bonfire Night and really anything a little dark or obscure! So it’s no surprise that today’s shoot was a collaboration between myself and the equally weird yet wonderful Claire Spake Design (sorry, Claire, you’re not weird, honest!)
We decided to create a bridal shoot which was completely out of the ordinary – something which included lots of dark elements, great taxidermy and great style! We just had to use the unique headpieces from Death & Glory Taxidermy, as well as blood shot favours from French Made! Our model (and florist’s) make up was by the ever talented Love Moi Make up & hair by Lynette Chasmer! Fearless Florals created the fab bouquets and papercut anatomical stationery by Claire Spake Design. Be sure to check out their websites too to see their great work!
Photographer Kerrie Mitchell captured the mood of this shoot perfectly, with its horror movie tones, and Claire Spake’s post-production work on creating the silent movie slates is just genius! This is created as a slideshow, to run as a silent movie, so be sure to watch it all!
Ladies & gentlemen, we bring you….
The Taxidermy Love Story!
Huge thanks to James Spake, Gwenda Jeffs & Nadia for modelling!
