The Arches, Dean Clough Wedding Photographer

We’ve all been there, you open the Pinterest app for a quick flick through and 40 minutes later you find yourself learning how to crochet a dinosaur hat for your cat. No? Just me? Okay…

Pinterest can be an amazing tool though, especially when it comes to planning a wedding. If, like me, you’re a visual person it’s the perfect platform to start collecting inspiration and formulating ideas – and that’s exactly how I started thinking about this shoot. Now I don’t know about you, but once I get an idea it’s literally all I can think about so straight away I threw together a mood board and started contacting suppliers. A few weeks later, voila… my whirlwind vision of a boho bridal shoot in an industrial setting with colourful summer vibes and a moroccan touch was brought to life! 

I was incredibly lucky to be able to collaborate with such a talented bunch of suppliers at short notice, especially as we’re all busy with the start of wedding season, so I am hugely grateful for everyone who took part and made this day as amazing and as beautiful as it was to photograph!

I also had a lot of fun trying my hand at styling which was quite daunting given the amount of experience I’ve had *ahem* zero but it just goes to show that if you like the idea of a DIY wedding or if you’re on a budget it is possible to create something that looks good and it will be completely unique and personal to you. If you’re dressing your own wedding is my advice would be don’t overthink it. As long as you’re happy with the way it looks then that’s all that really matters!
