Retro Italy Wedding

I’m well aware it’s very unlike me to blog so little on a Monday but I have been a bit of a busy bee today. Please forgive me and fret not because Janel & Jim’s ‘retro italian’ wedding is here y’all! (I don’t know where that ‘y’all’ came from either)

The couple continued to rock their awesome kitch/rockabilly style whist still managing to pull of a pretty damn elegant wedding. The dog was of course there being his cutie-pie self and the styling was second to none. From the vintage vespas (again) to the retro suitcase, from the kinky killer heels to the merrygoround – this wedding is one of pure rock n roll class.

Retro Italy Engagements

Janel & Jim are one of those couple’s the completely ooze cool. Their retro style – vespas, rockabilly hair, vans, pin up shoes and a teeny tiny dog – played huge part in their engagament session. Stay tuned for their gorgeous ‘retro Italian’ themed wedding next!

Equal Love

Yesterday Equal Love protests took place all over Australia for the 5th year running. Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Hobart and Canberra all hosted events.  Their mission is to change public opinion on gay marriage in their country through education and direct action. Yesterday was a landmark event for them, thousands of people showed up to each venue to witness hundreds of gay and lesbian couples commit their lives to each other in technically illegal ceremonies right in front of these cities’ courthouses.

Photographer Jessie Broome of J Studios attended the Melbourne event and alongside 4000 others, witnessed 65 couples commit their lives to each other.

I personally believe this is a wonderful cause and I fully support the rights of gay couples to marry. I would just like to add that this is not a sponsored post of any kind and that have not been paid to write this article. Jessie sent me the link and I knew I’d have to share it with you all. I feel very strongly that prejudice against gay relationships or marriage is fundamentally wrong and hope though my little blog, I can hopefully highlight this fantastic cause to a few more people.

Thans to Jessie for sharing the cause with us and for allowing us to use her images from the event.

Ali’s Story

Ali wore her best friend’s dress for her photo shoot with Carey Shaw; a knee length, sweetheart, corduroy detailed dress which was perfect for Lara’s city hall wedding and even more perfect for this soft, beautiful shoot.

Thanks to Carey for sharing her images and Ali’s story.

Circus Act Of Colour

Rock n Roll Bride sponsor Michelle of Oeil Photography sent me an exclusive peek at her newest photographic creation. A lucid ballet of light, colour and fabulous fashion, these shots just make me want to dress up in a bright yellow ‘cage’ dress and get my pose on!

Models Rene, Lauren (who actually made the yellow cage) and Tara (of Trigger Happy Photo) seriously rocked this shoot – stepping away from any fancy frou frou weddingness in favour of playing along in their very own circus act of colour, experimentation and edgy fashion.

Elopement Joy

I got sent a great photo session and a sweet sweet story from photographer Heather Kincaid yesterday and I just had to share.

About a month ago I received an email from Amanda asking if I was available “for a photo shoot the last week of July.” Kind of a cryptic email… Having already shot their engagement session last year, I knew it wasn’t for that. So I had no clue what she was talking about. In a second email she revealed that she and Viet were planning to get married at the courthouse– just the two of them — and wanted me to come along to document their very intimate wedding day. I was so surprised! They made the decision that after eight years of being together, they didn’t want to wait any longer to be husband and wife and decided that on July 27th, their eight-year anniversary, they would make it official. It would be just the two of them making their commitment and celebrating their love for one another.
