Steampunk wedding photographer: Laura & Adam
Steampunk wedding photographer: I was down in Nottingham today to photograph the wedding of Laura and Adam and it was certainly a wedding with a difference! Laura and Adam are both part of the steampunk and gothic circuit and their wedding was most definitely going to be in that style with a theme of black & red. Around 120 of their friends and family turned out for the wedding dressed in some marvelous outfits, mostly crafted by themselves and all in the Victorian time-travelling style that is steampunk. We began the day at Laura’s house where Laura and all the bridesmaids were getting ready and it was a real hive of activity. Despite the tragedy of Laura’s mum Colleen passing away just a few days before the wedding, everyone held up well and decided that the day should be both a wedding celebration and a celebration of Colleen’s life. We finished at Laura’s house with a fabulous shoot in the large rear garden with Laura and the girls before heading off to Church of St Peter & St Paul at Warsop to meet up with Adam.
Outside the church, the gathering of the steampunks was an excellent sight as we photographed Adam and the men with Adam looking very Jack Sparrow crossed with Noel Fielding :¬) The weather held for the formals and the bridal party shots which we did entirely at the church as there was limited opportunities at the venue. It was pretty hot by the time we finished the shoot and I can only imagine how uncomfortable the folks must have been in heavy velvet and hats so a cold pint was a welcome relief. Here are a few shots from the day to give a flavour of a spectacular wedding.
