There is something so elegant and beautiful about this bridal inspiration at Glasshaus Nursery shoot from Free the Bird Photography. Inspired to create something classic, the shoot centred around a beautiful vintage restored gown, the stunning nursery backdrop with dramatic and beautiful plants and rough, industrial style walls and floors (makes a perfect venue doesn’t it? Luckily it’s just opened up for wedding celebrations!).
Teaming up with vintage wedding lovers Maggie May Bridal, Glasshaus Nursery (who also styled the bouquet) model Ellen Louise Ryan, Jai of Free the Bird Photography wanted to experiment and try something completely new. Shooting on film (which was later processed by Richard Photo Lab) Jai notes, “Film has a special romance with how you create each image. It has a different quality and the shooting and developing process is completely different to shooting digital. The result of film is far less photos but more whimsical, romantic and timeless. Every image is unique and it feels special shooting with a camera that is 70 years old. The defects, the colours and tones that can’t be reproduced by modern technology. And why would you want to recreate something when you can still use this medium today?”
