This is the first of a special two-part 'ICONS' styled shoot, by the ingenious Lou from Bake To The Future.
Capturing truly incredible figures from music history, this shoot focuses on male music icons, being Prince, David Bowie, George Michael, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. Each icon has a unique look, as they did in real life, and as Lou explains, 'I selected six very different male music icons and created looks inspired by them, their style and essence. Everything from the hair and make up to the accessories and surroundings, was carefully thought out in order to capture the vibe and attitude of each icon. The result is a diverse and truly beautiful collection of photos to inspire and excite grooms.'
'Prince's look is 'Moody Couture', which is more dark, moody and a little quirky; David Bowie's look is the distictive 'Starman', and is androgyny epitomised, never afraid to bend the rules and change things up; George Michael's look is 'Club Tropicana Neon', and so is bright, fun and colourful; Jimi Hendrix is 'Woodstock Vibes', a fabulous boho King! Cool, calm and relaxed; and lastly, Kurt Cobain is 'Modern Grunge', rock and roll, grungy and just a little sultry.'
Many styled shoots focus on the brides, so this is a superb, unique collection of varied inspiration for the modern groom, at a uniquely beautiful location.
