Blood Wedding goes to Church

What better place to do a photo shoot for Blood Wedding than in a derelict church. There is a nice one near Denton, not far from Peterborough. Marthe Ogg de Ferrer procured a minivan for us, and with the help of google maps and Ella Duffy as our roadmap instructions reader, we found the way. Here are the photos from the evening.

Last photo of the day, selfie time!

There are several derelict churches within reach from Cambridge, so there will hopefully be more photo shoots like this. Many thanks to the cast and crew for making this possible!

Update: The blog post with the dress rehearsal of Blood Wedding is up.
