An Art Deco Wedding Shoot on the Barracuda in London

This week, instead of our usual real wedding feature, we have gorgeous pictures from an art deco styled wedding shoot to share with you, which took place on the London Eye Barracuda on the River Thames. With a stylish and luxurious setting, exquisite styling, and featuring some of London’s most famous landmarks, the shoot was captured beautifully by Fiona Kelly Photography. Fiona told us how the shoot came together…

“Back in 2011 I worked with the team behind London Bride magazine on a bridal shoot on and around the London Eye. This was so successful for both the magazine and the team at the London Eye that we teamed up again in 2012 to take the idea one step further.

“This time the amazing location was the Barracuda boat, which is run by the London Eye group. It really is the most stunning venue, even when you don’t take into account the fact you can sail down the Thames as well. The interior of the boat has a feel of modern art deco about it, which was our starting point and the inspiration behind the looks that were put together.

“It was a real top team that was put together to create some really inspirational images, using feathers, beading, a soft palette of colours, beautiful Jenny Packham and Sassi Holford dresses for our bride, and perfectly tailored suits with 1920’s inspired accessories for our groom.

“We also got to see London from arguably the best place possible… cruising in the middle of the Thames!”
