gods own junkard gay wedding photography neon-15

This might be one of my favourite shoots of all time. Ever.

Ever since I first visited God’s Own Junkyard, the home of neon artist Chris Bracey, I knew I wanted to shoot there and I think Dale and Ed were the perfect couple for this location.

Dale is an artist himself so I knew he’d feel at home among the art works.  We met up one fearsomely hot evening (made hotter by the lights all around us) and we hung out among the neon, before heading over to Lloyd Park to catch the last of the evening sunshine.

It was really good fun working with Dale and Ed, and doing something a little bit different. A shoot like this isn’t for everyone but I quite like the way it feels a little bit sleazy.

As an aside, Gods Own Junkyard has recently opened a new venue on the same estate, called The Blitz Factory. It will be available to rent out for weddings and they’ll decorate it for you with neon and props from the Junkyard. Amazing. I must photograph a wedding there.

Over to Dale and Ed.  Here’s what happened:

I'm genuinely obsessed with these pictures. I'm such a fun of pop art and neon, this is literally my dream place to shoot, and as always, you do such a grand job. I need to know more about the Blitz Factory. Shoot me any details when you have them! Can't find anything online about it at the mo. Karen x

One of my favourite places in London! God's Own Junkyard is an awesome place for a shoot. Lovely work & also love the one of them walking up the hill.

I love this shoot so much! I have a bit of a thing for neon signs and art in general. I love the noise of those photos next to the calm of the black and white outdoors ones. x

OMG, what a brilliant venue with all that neon! Well done on finding that. Definitely giving Vegas a run for its money, and you didn't even have to fly across the pond... :)
