Bridal Inspiration – Southsea Styled Shoot

Today, extracted from our current issue, we’ve got an uber-cool inspirational shoot for you. Shot in my hometown of Southsea, Portsmouth and involving some of my very favourite supplier folk, this shoot was a no-brainer for our issue 17 cover. The only problem was choosing which image to use!

The shoot was organised by my good friend and colleague Alex Cvijovic who runs The Vintage Parade and The Wonderous Wedding Fair. With a background in art and design, Alex always comes up with unique concepts and executes them perfectly.

This shoot took place at The Queens Hotel in Southsea, a magnificent Edwardian hotel overlooking the Solent. The hotel boasts ornate stone-carved balconies and neoclassical decoration. The styling team took over the disused top apartments, as the hotel carried out a complete renovation.

I was looking for a venue that had decaying walls, a feeling of abandonment… like the house of Miss Havisham in Great Expectations
