Sometimes as a Bride you want to exhibit your wild side, and ladies getting wed these days like to express themselves so today I am quite excited to share some extreme Wedding fashion.
Nowdays you don’t want to feel confined when marrying the love of your life so sometimes there is no better time to be a little crazy.
Imagine marrying amongst the icecaps, or saying I do under the sea with colourful fish swimming by.
The world is your oyster and you can go as far as your imagination will take you.
A wee while back design student Michelle Walters designed an Extreme Weddings Bridal Collection as part of her Final Year of her Fashion degree at Derby University.
Photographer Ewan Mathers captured these alternative fashion pieces on a photoshoot with the aspiring designer.
Ewan Mathers is a Wedding, Portrait and Commercial Photographer living in Derbyshire covering Derby, Nottingham, the UK and beyond.
He says of the shoot….
“The shoot was quite a challenge all round, and quite technically difficult.”
“Michelle had got hold of an old army silk parachute for the flying suit outfit and we had to string this up in the studio.”
“Also we had the model lie on a stool with the parachute above her then replaced the background for the falling images which can’t have been comfortable.”
“When it came to the underwater shots I was right in the thick of it, using a waterproof camera bag as I held my breath!”
“But it was an incredible shoot to be part of.”
Michelle the designer says of her Collection…
“They say that marriage is a journey, and adventure, the most memorable day of your life, and these days people are taking this quite literally with extreme wedding ceremonies.”
“With this in mind I created a collection for the Bride that wasn’t the typical traditional Bride, but for those that were adventurous and wanted to experience something new, or something they really loved on their Big Day.”
“With exotic locations and extremes of nature inspiring the Collection, the four outfits, Sahara, Skylar, Alaska and Aquamarine provide the perfect bridal attire for an alternative/extreme wedding.”
“Whether that be throwing yourself out of a plane to relaxing with the Wildlife on Safari.”
Thank you so much to Ewan for allowing me to share his incredible images and to Michelle for allowing me to share her extremely creative extreme wedding collection.
Inject some fun into your day and get alternative for wedding fashion and wedding style.
What a feeling of freedom to think outside the box and really expand your thinking to all the possibilities out there.
