This summer I finally got to fulfil a dream that in reality, should not have happened.
Many times, people ask me, “If you could shoot one wedding, who’s would it be?” My answer is always, Marilyn’s.
When I meet the phenomenal Laura Nixon, one of the best working Marilyn Monroe tribute artists in the world, I knew instantly that I could make my dream wedding come true. Laura not only looks strikingly like Marilyn when she is costume, but she emanates her aura and personality and she is able to portray both her sexuality and fragility, and this was always going to be very important to me, in my quest to find, Marilyn.
So Team Marilyn’s Wedding assembled! We headed off to Pinewood Studio’s to shoot the wedding and to feel in some small way connected to her, and we camped out at Heatherden Hall, the original heart of Pinewood Studio’s and a superb wedding venue, and came up with this tribute and reenactment of Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Millers Wedding.
