Let's make a movie
When Yorkshire-based photographer Ellie Grace got in touch about a photo shoot in an old cinema in Sheffield, I absolutely wanted in! Not only was the Abbeydale Picture House the most incredible location (think vintage emerald green velvet seats, layers of bold vintage wallpapers and so many beautifully crumbling walls, high ceilings and creaky stairs to hidden rooms!) but she had put together an almighty team of badass women!
The styling played heavily with dried flowers, done perfectly by the very talented Tracey at Campbells Flowers who made some perfectly imperfect dried bouquets, a very cool teepee installation as well as whipping up an insanely BEAUtiful dried flower crown when she realised she'd left the one she had made in preparation at her studio - I was in awe!
Julia Jeckel did the hair and make up of the stunning models Josh and Jess. Jess' red hair was styled to 'I woke up like this' perfection, and those coppery eyes, wow! Jess wore our Orion Gown, Stellar Gown and Celeste Gown, Aries Crop, Pyxis Veil and Lupis Veil.
Nature of The Beast provided some otherworldly props from her very cool Sheffield-based shop - a vintage taxidermy haven!
The Abbeydale Picture house would make for an incredible wedding venue, its such a beautiful, historic place and weddings here are run by Felicity and Elinor of Inner City Weddings, who are well known for organising the coolest weddings done with lots of style, personalisation and even better they have a strong focus on supporting and encouraging independent, authentic and alternative weddings. They have an array of cool wedding venues up their sleeves, and the Abbeydale picture house is one of them - its also where their office is based so it's safe to say they love it here too!
I had an absolute blast, and so happy that people approach Kindling Bridal for such interesting shoots.
