A Ballerina Inspired Bridal Shoot

Different stages of ballerina dancing

We were captivated by the beauty of the pictures from this ballerina inspired bridal shoot, styled and photographed by Archetype – we think you probably will be too!

We adore the soft peach and cream colours of this styling, and together with the delicate bridal flowers and the pretty vintage tiara crown, this shoot really oozes romance…

“We very much admire the art and form of pointe work, and relished the opportunity to work with an accomplished ballerina. It was our intention to capture movement, light, darkness, and the romance of dance in this editorial piece.”

How did your business get started and who works at Andrew Keher Photography?

My business came about almost by accident. My background is in construction (I’m a qualified Quantity Surveyor!), but following the economic downturn in my sector I felt compelled to seek other income avenues, just in case. I discovered I really, really enjoyed taking photographs of people and it just seemed a natural progression to weddings.

Photography was always a hobby of mine but it turns out I was far better at taking photographs and running my own business than I ever was at working in a 9 to 5 office! That’s not to say this all happened overnight; I’ve worked my socks off, many days from early in the morning to well after midnight in order to study and hone my techniques. It’s a constant learning experience and I’ll never stop striving.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

Not really! I’d always wanted to be a police officer, but due to my poor eyesight at the time it never became a reality. A good few years later and luckily, following laser surgery, I have perfect vision now – it does come in handy in my line of work. My younger brother has ended up joining the police instead!

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

Sorry, can’t remember! It was probably really rubbish though!

Today we have something a little different for you, with this incredibly romantic styled wedding shoot set on the tall ship ‘Elissa’.

If you are sea lovers, boat enthusiasts, or have a passion for all things nautical, then you may well have just found the perfect wedding theme for your big day. The dreamy styling of this wedding shoot will give you lots of inspiration and leave you wanting to rush off and find the perfect tall ship for your wedding!

Archetype’s images showcase this romantic wedding perfectly…

“Take me to the ocean; Let me sail the open sea. To breathe the warm and salty air, and dream of things to be.” Erica Billups

“A ship captain’s daughter, planning her wedding alongside her childhood friend… choosing elements that highlight her favourite memories of the ship at sea. Tables draped with silk chiffon to blow in the breeze; coral plates with mother-of-pearl and fine crystal and sterling for the place settings; romantic floral hinting at the colours of an ocean sunset; and of course, guests would find their seats by reading the hand written calligraphy on the sails of a model tall ship!

“The Elissa is the last one left of her kind in the world… it’s hard to explain the feeling of stepping onboard – there must be magic in her sails… and there is certainly romance in her air!”
