I think you’re gonna absolutely love these! Hayley’s trash the dress/bridal shoot had two ideas behind it – a goth bride and the movie Carrie! Scary and wonderful aren’t they?
I can’t actually decide which idea I prefer as both of them certainly have a ‘True Blood’ feel to them and I am obsessed with that show! I suddenly have a very strong inclination to go watch a very scary film…maybe about sexy vampires.
The dark feel of this trash the dress shoot is pretty damn fabulous huh? I am loving Michelle’s black fishnets, patent shoes and feathers in her hair – they certainly make for a grungy edge to the shoot. Michelle even made a dead flower bouquet to really empathise the gothic-esque feel.
♥ Shhh! An incognito New York Photographer is running a photo shoot contest. Incognito because they are keeping their identity a secret so not so influence the entries they receive. They say, In an effort to only attract the most creative, I have decided to remain anonymous. I do not want contestants going to my website for inspiration on what they think I may be looking for. I want them to be creative and original. I realize that this is unorthodox, but I truly believe this will enable me to find the type of contestants I seek.
I would love it if a Rock n Roll couple won this. Come on you can do it!
♥ Living TV are still on the look out for a Rock n Roll couple to take part in the next series of Four Weddings. If you’re in the UK and getting hitched between now and March then get in touch! For anyone who hasn’t seen the show before, here’s the info from the production team:
We are casting for the second series of “Four weddings” which see’s 4 brides attending each others’ weddings as guests and they will judge & score the day as a whole based on four categories, The Dress, The Food, The Venue and The Overall Experience. The scores are not disclosed amongst the other brides until after all the weddings when it will be revealed whose wedding has been judged the best! The bride with the highest score at the end of the show will win a Luxury dream honeymoon. We would really love a real variety of weddings celebrating different cultures and personal interests.We would love to include a gothic wedding or burlesque wedding, however we’re open to all sorts of weddings.This wedding would need to be taking place in December, January or February.
♥ I love posting videos to make you happieee
You may have seen this – it’s all over the internet, but my husband showed it to me on Tuesday and I melted (and laughed!)
Vanessa & Matthew had a personal and private retro rockabilly ceremony on the 4th September. Vanessa was 4 months pregnant on their ceremony day but her Dolly Couture dress compliments her mini bump perfectly. Unusually however the couple held off having their reception until October and so I have been waiting since September to share the full set!
I actually featured newbie photographer Shannon McLaughlin‘s own wedding waaaay back in February - many of you may recognise her as Mrs Candy Corn from Wedding Bee. Well, like many of us recent brides, the thought of giving up all things wedding once she’d tied the knot was too much to bear so she decided to venture into wedding photography herself…and oh how pleased we are that she did! She has only had her professional camera for a little over a month and look how awesome she is already!
The recently engaged Veronika & Bryan acted as models for this shoot. Veronika owns her own vintage shop called Sweet Tooth Vintage through the fabulous Etsy so she had lots of amazing outfits to wear. I am also loving the various props and locations used for this shoot – an environmental centre in Philadelphia, the couple’s own home (including their insane number of pets!) and a cuuuute tandem bike!
