Wedding cake dolls photo shoot // Creative London Photographer

A few days ago it was our ninth wedding anniversary and I spent yesterday afternoon in the garden photographing the bride and groom cake dolls that sat on top of our very magnificent wedding cake.

I was bored, it was sitting there gathering dust and I thought, “why not?” so I did.  I took the wedding cake dolls, gave it a quick clean and went out to the garden to capture the dolls in different lighting situations and from different perspectives.

Here’s the interesting part, these dolls are permanently glued together so this posed a little challenge. I needed more than one shot and in order to get that, I had to be creative.

Capturing an inanimate object and trying to make it look interesting is not an easy feat but I enjoyed every minute and it helped me to think out of the box.

I was lying on the floor, bending, squatting and almost talking to dolls while my neighbours looked on and wondered if indeed I had lost my marbles.

The best part was not just creating the images, but also getting the props together from the most unassuming things. Like creating a backdrop from my daughter’s ribbon-patterned wellington boots, using an old cardboard paper as a backdrop, manipulating leaves and using my beloved New King James Bible as a prop.

It was more fun than I was expecting and I am so excited to share the images with you.

A special thank you to my super clever five year old daughter who was more than a willing helper.

    What an incredible idea, photographing your cake wedding dolls! I am even more stunned that you still have them 😉 If you hadn’t mentioned that they were permanently glued together – and I must say I just love what the symbolicism – I would not have noticed. All I see is great shots of a great couple with amazing poses! Well done, this is just awesome all round!ReplyCancel
