City Chic London Photo Shoot

17 Dec 2014

City Chic London Photo Shoot

Photographer Carey Sheffield put together a city chic styled shoot in London to inspire London Brides. She tells us how she did it

“The concept of the shoot was to focus on bridal fashion and detail in a city environment with a hint of festive/New Year/black tie feel,” says Carey.

“I used a black, white and gold theme, with a splash of vibrant colour and all gowns were from Emma Hunt London – we also featured her new LBD range.

“The venue, Hackney Town Hall is steeped in history and has been restored to its Art Deco glory. It is an underestimated venue that surprised me with its fine detail, size and amenities a real gem in this part of London so big thanks to Emma at Coco Venues for securing for us.

“The shoot was all put together by a great team, we worked together in the weeks leading up to it to establish the style, logistics, props and furniture required, a great collective of wedding professionals that I would heartedly recommend and look forward to working with again.”
