What made you choose the asylum venue for Styled Shoot || Decaying Decadence

The Maverick Asylum is the absolute dream london venue. It offers gorgeous rich tones with its beautifully decaying historical features. we based the shoot around the venue and wanted to embrace the tones of the walls, its weathered and non traditional interiors.

It was to show couples they can push boundaries, and reflect their personalities in their wedding, as there’s a misconception that in order to have an alternative wedding you need to use bright colours, and lary features. There are couples who don’t want a loud colourful wedding, so we did this shoot.

We love the look, why did you choose them?

We had two different looks  for the shoot. one for the day which was silks, a gorgeous fabric crown and make up with a red lip. For the evening we changed it up going a little bolder to add some drama to the darkened building. we used reflective stars in the make up, and changed to a more industrial gold geometric crown and a translucent dress with a black under dress.

well, Lucy Can’t dance was an obvious choice for us. her style is just gorgeous and She offers such incredible hand made dresses. not only are they badass but they still retain elegant bridal elements. The dip dyed silk dress is the ‘Deadshot’ and the second translucent dress is ‘Galactic Blue’

We’re just loving these florals!

we had the most amazing florsit, From the Wild Florist offers the most incredible skills with regards to bringing the outside inside. we wanted elements of a secret garden,you know as if the venue was beginning to be consumed by wild crawling foliage. The warmth of the heather and the muted tones and textures of the pampas grass gave an aged feeling which we felt resonated with the building itself, given its peeling walls and abandoned building feeling.

we also complimented The secret garden/crawling foliage within the hair pins from blusing flamingos, these fit perfectly with the style created by Ellie of The UpDo Girl. Her skill levels and the intricacy she creates is astounding.

Lisa Caldognetto Bridal Make-Up providing two stunning looks on the model. the first was to fit with the silk blue dress and then she spiced things up a little for an evening look and added some stars which tied in perfectly with the geometric crown from the Lucky Sixpence.
