A same-sex Labyrinth-inspired wedding shoot that moves the stars for no one #Wedding Inspo#fantasy wedding#lesbian weddings#LGBTQ#movies#styled shoot#uk Updated Jun 7 2021 (Posted Oct 2 2018) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by: Lex Fleming Photography Photos by Lex Fleming Photography The power of voodoo! Labyrinth fans, this one is for you. This Labyrinth wedding inspiration shoot combines the fantasy of a fairyland wedding with the reality of an English Tudor castle backdrop. Florals with glass globes and touches of ultra-violet, a gingerbread maze wedding cake, a modern labyrinth wedding dress take on Sarah's fantasy ball gown, and even light-up shoes. Wait until you see the styling with owl feathers, clocks, and masks… as well as bubbling custom cocktails inspired by the bog of eternal stench. Here's a little bit from the dress designer, Felicity Westmacott, on how it all came about… As a child of the 1980s, the film Labyrinth was a core part of my film experience growing up. Not only is it a beautiful film with gorgeous visuals and effects but it's an empowering story about female resilience, a rare thing amongst so many romantic princess films back then. With the underlying story of female empowerment, nothing seemed more right than to start with the idea of a female couple, styling one after Sarah in her amazing fantasy ball dress and the other after David Bowie's Jareth in all his elfin glory, but both updated and with a modern twist. I designed the Sarah labyrithn wedding dress with removable sleeves and overskirt, giving her options to change her look. We wanted two main backgrounds for our shoot, the maze for atmosphere and the gorgeous paneled interior to echo the ball scene from the film. As home to Anne Boleyn, Hever Castle is famous for its long history with all the traditional elements one could desire from a castle wedding venue: a moat, drawbridge, battlements, maze, and beautiful gardens. How you turn my world, you precious thing. Are you ready to see this Labyrinth-inspired wedding shoot?

Love the idea of the removeavle sleeves and overskirt. Convertible clothing is my THING! ? Reply (Now I’ll have the Labyrinth soundtrack stuck in my head all day…that’s a good way to start a Tuesday!) Reply Where can I find the pants/blouse the other bride is wearing? Reply sooo late to the party to reply, but you can order them from me (the designer) direct or through my etsy shop. thank you for the love 🙂 Reply Just wow. Holy super duper wow. I mean, how did someone dream this up. Incredible. Clapping. Reply Gorgeous and creative and wonderful! I'm squealing internally in my office. 😀 Reply Holy gorgeousness! If anyone has leads on where those boots are from, let me know! I absolutely need them in my life. Reply hey, dress designer from the shoot here, the boots were 'models own' as they say, in this case from Marks and Spencer, but I don't know how long ago, or if they are still available! Reply Still something to go on, thanks! Reply Designer: "This photoshoot is about female empowerment" Also designer: Makes invitations say "Mr and Mrs Husbandname Lastname" ? Reply Hi, the dress designer and shoot instigator here. I did not create the invitations, but in the stationary designers' defence that's probably just her standard format from a template design someplace, not her own words. But I agree, unfortunate placement. Reply That's just a standard formal invitation – most, if not all standard formal invitations will always be "Mr and Mrs His Name," according to every etiquette book you'll ever read or class you'll ever take. That doesn't mean that any of this was lacking in female empowerment. Why would you bother trying to take away from something so beautiful? Reply Everything is gorgeous! Such creativity and attention to detail! I'm blown away, really. I hope these lovely newlyweds have plenty of beauty, joy, and magic in their lives together. <3 Reply Insanely, mind-blowingly gorgeous! I'm totally dead from the labyrinth-esque glitz and glamour! Beautiful couple! Health and happiness to you both! Reply I’m speechless…just looking at this makes me want to get married all over again! Vow renewal time…!
