Hannah Gooch has worked on styled shoots before and wanted to try and create something completely different, with a moodier feel and much more editorial and fashiony. She's admired Nick Tuckers photography for some time so thought she’d approach him about a collaboration and was delighted when he agreed!
“This shoot was very much a full blown collaboration with Hannah Gooch. We wanted to create a darker, moodier, edgier, more overtly fashion shoot, than maybe your typical bridal stories. Bright, sunlit shots of model brides tripping along flowery pathways have become very familiar lately and we wanted to do something a little different. Not least because when I shoot weddings myself the brief is always really to capture the warm, light, radiance of the day (as of course it should be). So here was a great chance to go 'off-trend' and do something unusual, and have fun!” Nick Tucker
Nick and Hannah talked over email and felt that this shoot should be a fashion shoot, that just happened to be wedding dresses. So steering away from the soft, pretty bridal images that you usually see, to create something with more drama and mood.
Hannah says "I immediately thought about Fetcham Park as our backdrop and was delighted that Laura Caudery offered us the use of the house. The grand staircase and the incredible paintings on the walls and ceilings were the perfect setting.
Because we weren’t working with décor and flowers for this shoot, our team was fairly small, but consisted of talented make-up artist Sara, and Holly, who was our hair stylist for the day.
When it came to the styling of the shoot, I wanted to achieve something a little more editorial, and try some different looks. I particularly like the gold, dewy skin that Sara created for the shot of our model on the stairs in the gold Tammam dress, and the moodiness created with the big hair, feathers and dark eyes created for the look where our model is wearing the Joanne Fleming dress.
The great dresses and accessories from obviously all helped create something, we hope, is very special...."
