It’s not very often you get to say that one of your styled shoots has been featured in HELLO! magazine – but this gothic wedding inspired shoot at the unique wedding venue that is the National Justice Museum acheived just that! In fact it’s been published in two blogs as well as HELLO! which is pretty darn exciting. 

I don’t do many styled shoots in a year. To deliver them to a high standard they need a lot of planning and co-ordination. As well as a great wedding venue, you need an awesome team and a LOT of attention to detail. Pretty much the same as we give any wedding day which we are involved in. 

So I was super chuffed with the way this one turned out. With its rich, yet dark, colour palette, it totally worked with our quirky wedding venue. We wandered between the prisoners exercise yard, courtroom, womens cells and hangmans noose to get all the pictures that we wanted. Surrounded by years on years of somewhat bloody history, we managed to encapsulate the romance and excitement of a wedding day as documented perfectly by Vicky Clayson Photography. So check out the highlights below … we even had time for some fun too!
