A minimalist, modern bridal shoot

24 Jul 2017

Using two locations and styles, this avant-garde photoshoot was based on new and emerging bridal trends 

Photographer Amanda Akokhia takes us behind the scenes of her minimalist, modern bridal shoot in Cheshire.

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

We noticed a new trend emerging for a minimal and modern aesthetic for brides, so for the first look we decided to go for something that encompassed a juxtaposition of both the modern and traditional bride. For the second look, we chose to go for a minimal, avant-garde bridal style.

Tell us a little bit about the venue and why it was chosen?

We shot the first look on The Avenue in Llym. We were attracted to the stunning row of trees and stunning stately houses, which acted as the perfect backdrop and added an elegant and classic style to the images. For the second look, we decided to shoot in a rose garden to add to the romantic and idyllic theme we were looking to achieve.

What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits for the bride?

The dress was designed and created by Jessica Bennett Bespoke, whose brand produces sleek and minimalistic designs for contemporary brides. Our stunning bride’s hair was expertly crafted by Laura Kulik from the Hair Bank Manchester, who delivered a classic elegant bob style styled with big curls to give it texture and movement. This created a soft loose look. For the second style, there was more of an airy touch with and a little back combing, which created a light airy look to match the romantic dress in the rose garden background. The make-up was kept natural apart from the strong smokey eyes and bright lips, which were perfectly achieved by Ellie Bebbington.

What kind of accessories were used to create these looks and why?

We used very minimal accessories for this look to add to the modern aesthetic we were looking to create.
