This has got to be the darkest wedding locations I have ever experienced!
The Coal Bunker at Scienceworks is normally used as part of a tour of the Pumping Station, and is completely without natural light, featuring one long and narrow ramp that snakes its way down the three storey interior of this cave like, but wonderfully industrial space. I’ll admit, when Sally and Ariel called me to say they wanted a photographer who would be able to work in the dark, I was both excited and a little nervous! WhenI found out from the venue that the space hadn’t been hired for a ceremony for as long as any of the staff there could remember, I knew I was in fairly untouched territory.
After a very creative meet up, in which we decided giant sparklers would be a great ‘coal bunker’ substitute for rose petals or confetti, we organised a couple of small lights that would highlight the location whilst still preserving the dark look the couple were trying to achieve. It was a beautiful and wonderfully challenging day for me, and I had so much fun with a couple that are so obviously in love. Best of Luck Sally and Ariel, and congratulations on a gorgeous day!
