A Peaky Blinders inspired Wedding styled shoot where industrialised meets vintage

Today I am thrilled share this Peaky Blinders inspired Wedding styled shoot where industrialised meets vintage at Ironbridge Gorge.

With dapper cutting edge style, the images grip you and draw you in with a piercing allure.

Images were captured by Birgitta Zoutman Photography with a fabulous collaborative team have come together to create gangster glamour at its very best with a nod to the iconic show.

Birgitta says of the shoot…

 

In the summer I second shot a wedding at a stunning venue with 20’s vibes, and there I met the fantastic Jones Barbers from Oswestry, who visit grooms on their wedding morning to give them hair with sleek lines and clean sharp cuts.

These two elements were what gave me the initial inspiration for this Peaky Blinders inspired Wedding styled shoot

With my partner in crime Fran, and fabulous veil designer Ashley to help me plan this shoot we were soon set.

 

The location for the shoot was Ironbridge Gorge.

Ironbridge Gorge is a deep gorge, containing the River Severn in Shropshire, England. It was first formed by a glacial overflow from the long drained away Lake Lapworth, at the end of the last ice age.

The deep exposure of the rocks cut through by the gorge exposed commercial deposits of coal, iron ore, limestone and fireclay, which enabled the rapid economic development of the area during the early Industrial Revolution.

Originally called the Severn Gorge, the gorge now takes its name from its famous Iron Bridge built in 1779, the first of its kind in the world, and a monument to the industry that began there.

This setting with its stark industrial edge made it the perfect background for the shoot.

 

Taking Peaky Blinder’s sharp cuts and  working class roots and 20’s style as inspiration we gathered a fantastic team of suppliers who were mostly Shropshire to build a really pretty vintage aesthetic.

An exception to our Shropshire vendors was Emma Spowage but I fell in love with one of  herdried flower bouquets at the wedding I shot in Copenhagen so I really wanted to involve her work.

I used the colours of  a gorgeous rustic bouquet as a guide in the styling combined with aspects of blue, and metallics while the tale flowers were supplied by Ginger Lily Florist.

Dresses were provided by Gatehouse Brides complimented by veils and bridal capes by Adorn by Ashley and accessories by Shropshire Jewellery Designs.

The gents were decked out in sharp Shrewsbury tweed suits by Peter Posh.

The Brides hair and make up were created by Fran Hansen while the gents sharp looks were created by Jones Barbers and CJ the Barber.

The beautiful stationery was designed by the very talented and lovely Anna from Evelyn and Elliot alongside styling by Ginger Moon Hire,  tablewear by Tipples Bar and Hire, and cake by Hunkington House Kitchen.

With a fabulous car by 2XL Limousines the scene was set all coinciding with Ironbridge Gorge Weddings open day, and shot in front of a live audience.
