Everything Came Together Perfectly

“Our Viking wedding inspiration shoot took place at an authentic Gothic castle. The dew was heavy on the ground and thick mist shrouded the grey stonework. Everything came together perfectly!”

“The hair and make-up featured modern versions of traditional, Viking styles; heavy, smokey eyes and braided, accessorised hairstyles. Each model brought their own, unique look to the shoot, and when they were all together they looked incredible. They were like true warrior princesses!

“The rich plum, damson, aubergine and peach florals matched the amazing cake and hand-painted stationery beautifully. The brass, blue-grey slate and dark crockery helped to create a fabulous feast table, complete with hanging Edison lighting.

“The overall look was a far cry from the whites and pastels of many weddings. However, it was so warm and inviting that we all wished we were dining at that table.
