A ghostly bridal shoot in Norfolk

Marcus Summers of F22 Photography joined forces with model Alex Mount to create a shoot depicting a forgotten bride in an eerie and ghostly setting.

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration behind it all was that I wanted to shoot a series of photos that told a story of a forgotten bride in a forgotten place. I entitled the shoot 'Bridal Abandoned'.

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

The venue was an old disused RAF base in Norfolk. I felt the look of the old buildings - abandoned and in a state of disrepair, would work perfectly with the theme of forgotten brides.

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

I wanted the bridal model to look both glamorous and beautiful, like all brides do on their big day. I wanted to achieve the look of a bride that has been waiting for some time for her groom. I gave Alex a few ideas on how I would like the hair and make-up, which she did perfectly.

What was the thinking behind the décor for the shoot? How did you tie it all together?

As I was trying to achieve the look of a forgotten bride, the location had to be somewhere with a similar feel to it. I did start off looking at big stately homes, but that just wasn’t going to give me the same feel to the shots that I was looking for. I’m a bit of a urban explorer, so finding somewhere suitable wasn’t difficult once I'd realised a stately home wasn’t the right fit. I had already been to the location before so I could plan the shots with the layout knowledge I had.
