Urban Wedding Inspiration
Urban wedding photography is not something a photographer who spends much of their time in the Lake District does very often. So, when the opportunity to join in an edgy styled shoot in and around Camden, London came up I jumped at the chance!
So what is a styled shoot? I hear you ask.
Suppliers from across the wedding industry come together to create magical inspiration for you and have it photographed. They are also events where us photographers can meet and forge relationships with suppliers and other photographers. Styled shoots also provide me with a great place and to learn and grow creatively too. Something which is always a positive for you.
My first venture into urban wedding photography started on a Saturday morning, catching the early train from Penrith, on the edge of the northern Lake District, to London. To a lake district wedding photographer who’s used to the bleating of lambs and views of the fells busy London feels different and exciting.
After a few minor delays (we all know what train travel is like) I arrived in the hustle and bustle of Camden on a Saturday to meet models Kennedy and Dathan, greet old friends and make new ones.
After the introductions were over we headed out for detail shots. I love this time where I get to play with all the details such as the dress, gorgeous jewellery and hand-painted shoes.
Urban Wedding Details
A short walk around the area provided so many interesting backdrops, clean lines and bright colours perfectly suiting the grungy feel of the shoot.
The hand-finished dip dye effect on the two piece wedding gown created by Bex Brides is a great way to combine traditional while being true to your personality. The grooms attire was provided by Dandy Threads and proves that colour and patterns can be very effective.
