Sometimes its great to step out of the box and bring some fun and fantasy into planning our celebrations and this Labyrinth inspired Wedding styled shoot is just incredible with its gothic and whimsical edge.
This shoot is what fantasy lovers dreams are made of and gives great stylistic inspiration for those who want to really express their inner geek on their big day.
Images were captured by Tricia Duncan of Labyrinth Productions.
Labyrinth is a 1986 British-American fantasy film directed by Jim Henson, produced by George Lucas and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud.
The film stars David Bowie as Jareth and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah.
The plot revolves around Sarah’s quest to reach the center of an enormous otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby, who has been kidnapped by Jareth, the Goblin King.
With the exception of Bowie and Connelly, most of the significant characters in the film are played by puppets produced by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
The shoot was idealised around the Ballroom scene in the film where Jareth attempts to seduce Sarah, and while romance and a marriage never happened a heightened tension is there which is really reflected in the images.
Tricia Duncan who shot this epic adventure said “I decided to do this theme a few months ago.”
“I knew it was time to rebrand my photography Business as many aspects have changed. My old Business name did not reflect who I am and the direction my Business was following.”
“I wanted my inherent weirdness to show in a subtle way and that is why I chose to do a Labyrinth inspired Wedding shoot to reflect my new Business name.”
“Even my business by name has geeky roots as Labyrinth was my most treasured movies when I was younger.”
“I saw Sarah as strong and clever, and I loved everything about the movie.”
“When I grew up I really wanted to work with Jim Henson I was so inspired by his work.”
“For the shoot I spent hours watching the movie, looking at stills. I wanted to be as close as it could be to the movie without actually being the same.”
“Recreating the fantastical costumes, and the fabulous hair in the film was no easy task and this took weeks alone but with help from an amazing collaborative team – make up Keren Robinson, production assistant Lynn Smith, and Jessica Stone who assisted me with costumes we pulled off an amazing shoot.”
Thank you so much to Tricia for sharing her fabulous imagery and creativity with this outstanding Labyrinth inspired Wedding styled shoot.
Its amazing how works that inspired us from childhood can lead to the creation of something so beautiful and exciting and the team has worked so well to create an idea of fantasy geek heaven.
Its also great that is shows how individual personalities can be expressed in our Big Days as we don’t live in a one wedding fits all society.
