Photographer Charleigh Akmenkalns shares the inspiration behind the bridal shoot which we have featured on etc Magazine's September cover.

The idea for this shoot came about after myself, Charleigh Victoria Photography, and my two friends Kiri MUA and Sam Orwell Hair thought it would be great to get together and do a bridal shoot, which we did along with some very talented local suppliers.

It was such a success and was featured on Girl Gets Wed blog.

After that Chichester Guildhall contacted us to ask if we would be interested in doing a styled shoot for them. Of course we jumped at the chance as it’s such a beautiful setting and it’s local.

The day was amazing and resulted in these phenomenal pictures.

Our models were stunning and very patient, the weather was on our side, lavender surrounded the chapel and it all came together gloriously.
We are now on the lookout for our next location and hoping for somewhere equally as stunning.
