We were recently invited by Ghost Orchid Bridal – the alternative wedding dress shop in Hull East Yorkshire – to photograph four of their stunning wedding dresses. What’s more, the models were married couple Alex and Zara and we photographed their real wedding day!
We count Zara and Alex as good friends and we knew that we could just photograph them naturally, like we do with all our couples on a wedding day. No posing, no staging – we just let them go for a walk and enjoy the surrounding of Hull Marina and Humber Street. So this is undoubtedly a styled shoot but it is one with a really natural feel. Not only is Zara an amazing model and one of our good friends, she’s also such a wonderful florist. Her company Floral and Lace are one of the very best Yorkshire wedding florists and they provided the amazing bridal bouquet for this shoot.
We were so honoured to be asked by Ghost Orchid to be their photographer for this shoot. Below you’ll find our favourite images from the shoot, featuring dresses designed by: & For Love, Daughters Of Simone and Chosen By One Day. Then you’ll find out why we loved these dresses so much!
All the dresses are available from Ghost Orchid in Hull and we loved every single one of them! Ghost Orchid picked out such a wonderful selection of dresses and it was really lovely to meet the owner Katy.
The first dress is called Imogen and is by the amazing Canadian wedding dress designers & For Love. We absolutely love this beautiful sparkly yet elegant wedding gown.
Dress number two is again by & For Love and is called Victoria. The two piece gown is simply stunning. We love bohemian dresses and the style of Victoria really stood out to us.
The third dress we photographed is by Daughters Of Simone and is called Kathryn. What a stunning dress.
Autumn by Chosen By One Day is the last dress we photographed is so very beautiful. It’s such a unique dress and one that Zara loved wearing!
Floral and Lace designed a beautiful bridal bouquet for Zara to use.
The earrings are by A.B.Ellie and the denim jacket is by & For Love.
