Kat & Gareth by Made U Look Photography – Who, by the way, you totally need to book for your Rock n Roll wedding…(Just Sayin’)

Apologies, you’re about to see a lot of photos of me & Gareth being soppy, silly and cute in New York… but I guess that’s what happens when the Made U Look girls shoot you. It’s nigh on impossible to cut them down because they are all. so. good. This is by far both Gareth & my favourite shoots we’ve done together. In fact I will definitely be getting some many of these babies printed to plaster our house with.

There was an interesting discussion going on on my facebook page earlier this week about the amount of personal vs wedding stuff I post on my blog. I know not everyone is interested in seeing my face (!) but I know many of you are! I like to try to offer as broad a range of inspiration as possible – some will be relevant to you, some not. However if these shots inspire at least one of you for your own engagement or anniversary shoot (or hell, even give you some new fashion or make up ideas) then I’m happy. If not, no worries, because we’ve now got these awesome photos of us to treasure forever!

I’m wearing…

Outfit One

♥ Black & white striped Nanette Lepore dress
♥ Upper Street Ballet Flats (designed by me!)
♥ Heart headband by Janine Basil on etsy / Flower headband from Lisa Harris Jewellery
H&M ring
Patrica Field skull bracelet

Outfit Two

♥ Nanette Lepore Jacy Pleated Floral-Print Skirt
♥ Jimmy Choo Tokyo hi tops
H&M white vest
Furla candy handbag in silver glitter (limited edition for Christmas 2011)
Forever 21 colour block necklace
♥ Forever 21 bangles

These photos are the perfect reminder of our trip to New York and I’m thrilled with the results. They not only show our love, but how much fun we had (and of course our ridiculous personalities!)

Gareth’s face cracks. me. up in this one…

Gareth does a good epic jump!

The girls also made a video of their trip which includes behind the scenes footage of this shoot as well the one I did with Gala. Cuteness personified. Ahhh I love Made U Look Photography so much. It really was an honour to be shot by them. Just book them for your wedding already! (and then send me the photos after because they will be fabulous).

Also I have to share some huge love to Eryk Datura for my epic make up transformation. Gareth called my look ‘chameleon eyes’. It’s certainly dramatic, and we all know I love a bit of drama!

Would you ever do a shoot with your beau to help you remember a holiday? I’d highly recommend it!

PS It’s true, I totally didn’t know what to title this post and so I just went for the super catchy “Kat & Gareth by Made U Look Photography – Who, by the way, you totally need to book for your Rock n Roll wedding…(Just Sayin’)”… cos you know, it’s true. You do need to book them. Now.

  1. such a handsome couple! and how many sets of awesome photos can a couple have?? Not enough? lol Love your stripey dress and pink skirt …really suits you

  2. James Maguire

    Whereas really nice images, they look the same as every other couple or pre wed shoot that you see lots of. Id also like to see you act more natural and stop trying to be a model. This shoot also proves style over substance and location means “better ” shoot.

    James – you say we look like every other couple… well thats cos we are like every other couple…we werent trying to do something ‘different’ we just wanted some amazing photos of us together.
    But then you say im ‘trying’ to be a model? youre kinda contradicting yourself there. if you dont like these photos thats fine, but we love them. And they’re for us, not you!

  4. James… that comment is kind of creepy… sorry but “I’d like to see you act more natural..” er, sorry to break it to you but you don’t get to tell women how to act and look in pictures that’s just weird. Was going to go in and defend the photos but the comment was so bizarre I think I’m going to just give you a puzzled expression (like this :@) and move on!

    I think they’re very purdy photos and if you don’t like them, nobody’s forcing you to look at them :)

    Ohh and loving the ponytail in the air shot!!!

    Have a lovely Saturday xx

  5. Lucy

    James – that is a very odd comment and SUCH a contradiction! these are beautiful natural photos and they are laughing and pulling stupid faces in most of them! i dont see many ‘models’ doing shoots like this…so kindly leave. your negative comments are not welcome on such a beautiful shoot!

  6. Post author

    Sara – we were laughing about Gareth’s ponytail in the air for AGES when we got the photos through. haha!

  7. Those Made U Look girls are my newest camera crushes. These images are adorable, I think it’s great to see Mr Rock n Roll Bride escaping the nook under the stairs and catch a glimpse of your lives as a couple. Looks like you had a fantastic time and to me these pictures are very natural but still creative.

  8. Linda

    Wow Kat I really love these photos especially the very first shot! On another note I love all your personal posts. It keeps ex brides like me coming back :-) oh and everyone should book the madeulook girls….they make you feel so relaxed and catch you having fun. Not posed at all x

  9. These photos are so beautiful. They seriously brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing them and I’m simply blown away by the creativity and artistry of Made U Look Photography. Your second outfit was ridiculous! LOVE the shoes.

  10. This has prompted me to arrange a shoot with Craig and i. The only photos we have of him and i that i really like are of us on our wedding day, but it would be nice to have a set of photos like these where its not of our wedding day but us just hanging out, having fun. I have a holiday booked for September and you have given me an idea to get a shoot set up!

  11. Post author

    Oh yey Nicola that’s ace!!! Its so cool having photos if us being ‘normal’ and a holiday is the perfect excuse!

  12. I love them, such fun natural photos, thank you for sharing them oh and surely Gareth’s outfit should get a mention haha it’s obvious who he’s modeling, love abercrombie. Great idea having a photoshhot while on holiday x

  13. Gala

    These photos are so cute! I absolutely love them. You both look fantastic. Go get ‘em framed & hang some up!

  14. These are so good! I like the silly ones especially, I love that you two are having so much fun in them. Toooo sweet. And another great jumping photo of Gareth! :D Loooved that video too, it’s like a dream! I reeeeally want to go to NY someday and following along with your adventures made me want to go even more.

    Would you ever do a shoot with your beau to help you remember a holiday?
    YES and I did and you were there and it was awesome and I kinda want to do it again! ;D

  15. RachyLou

    These are my favourite photos of you and Gareth, they capture you perfectly! And to the people that say you include too much of your own personal shots on this blog, how can you NOT be inspired by these photos?! In love + having fun= best photos ever. xo

  16. I’m SO glad you didn’t narrow them down – I love seeing the whole day unfold. SO much fun in these shots, and WowEEE Kat, the Nanette Lapore dress is just S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. on you.
