Bridal fashion photography London & Manchester

Excitement is awaiting this weekend, as I’m getting ready for the big spring wedding show at London Excel . It’ll be a full on weekend for me, as I’ll be capturing all the bridal fashion photography for the organiser’s marketing campaigns…

Really looking forward to it – the organisers theweddingfairs.com, always offer up shows that are a true delight to photograph – shows that both showcases a varied selection of bridal trends, and at the same time carries a captivating energy and choreography. I love the challenge of spotting the different moments and to play around with composition in order to get the most interesting shots. (Those who have visited the shows in Manchester or London, might have seen tiny little me run around for different styles of shots – good thing I’m tiny hey.)

I’ve shot the shows for them since 2012, but this particular show will definitely be a little bit extra special! This time weddingfairs.com will host the launge of the TV-show “Say Yes to the Dress UK” (!) So on Sunday, I’ll be eternalising their very first UK show with my camera – so that’s certainly something to look forward to and a reason to have just a few butterflies fluttering around in my stomach 😉 .

While waiting for this weekend to start happening, I’m here posting a few favourites from the North West spring show which I shot a month back at Manchester Event City. Enjoy and be inspired! I’ve posted the names of the bridal boutiques at the bottom of this post for anyone up for a dress hunt!

A couple of weeks ago I had the wonderful commission to shoot the bridal fashion show and marketing images for the organisers of Bluewater wedding fair. The wedding fair in Glow, Bluewater – featuring some of the most sought after wedding industry suppliers of the South East, was heaving with couples on the lookout for everything from bridal ware and rings, to cakes, photography, venues, transport, decor – and everything else that a couple might want to have for their day.

The spring bridal show in Glow offered a fantastic insight in to the 2013 bridal fashion, delivered with some really entertaining choreography. Jazzy, playful dance- inspired choreography that generated smiles from the crowd, was intervened with class and elegance – all choreographed by Vicki Jackson in conjunction with Xcite – perfectly portraying the current bridal trends of rich and vibrant colours, vintage details and dreamy textures.

About this season’s trends in bridal fashion:

” This season’s highlights include beautiful lace, short hemlines, jewel necklines and exciting developments in colour – whether rich and vibrant or more subdued, all kinds of hues are featured on the catwalks. While full and frothy skirts are still (and will always be) in fashion, more fitted and ladylike styles are also emerging in a style reminiscent of Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. There is also lots of romance with dreamy textures, soft layering and vintage inspired details.”
