Fall in love with this alternative shoot at Hellens

When these images first landed in our inbox, we just knew our lovely readers would adore them. We spoke to Jenny Morgan from Chocolate Falls to find out more about how this shoot came together: "I've always had a passion for Gothic styling and loved the idea of combining contrasting popular themes to create a slightly alternative but elegant display. A very close friend of mine is a medium and white witch who practices pagan rituals, which I find fascinating, so we merged the two and romanticised it into a wedding setup. I envisaged a shoot where there was a Gothic presence but softened with touches of nature which incorporated the Pagan rituals perfectly. I've built relationships with several suppliers over the years who are all incredibly talented in their particular fields, and each possesses a creative flair which allowed us to showcase our artistic range."
