Methinks you all loved London Bride’s ‘The List’ two weeks ago so I asked the lovely blogger & wedding stylist to do us another one – this time, one of my favourite wedding themes, Retro Rockabilly. 

As always, let us know what you think in the comments and feel free to make suggestions for the next wedding theme for her to tackle. 

Enjoy!

Photography Friday – A Week in Pictures

This week I bought a beautiful Evans Lichfield Union Jack Pink Crown Tapestry Cushion on a whim. I loved it so much that we ordered 2 more off Amazon. They are perfect!

I also treated myself to a little reminder of what to do when I get blog-stressed. I found this little beaut by Etsy seller 3LambsGraphics. I love.

I went to my new favourite cafe, Bill’s Produce Store. It’s all organic, the food is yummy, the shop is beautiful and I love.

Aeroplanes, Vintage Fashion & A Food Fight!

Aeroplanes, vintage clothes a food fight make for a pretty incredible engagement session. Kristen & Steve put a lot of thought and effort into their ideas for the shoot, and Kristen even went the full whack and wore a genuine vintage dress from the 1970’s that had belonged to her Mother.

“Kristen emailed me one day with the idea of a food fight and nonchalantly asked, “Do you think we could do that?” — Needless to say… I said hell to the yeah!” explained photographer Julian. “So after acquiring her Mothers original engagement party dress (Yup! The dress is 30 years old) – We decided to go vintage, vintage, vintage and finish with the food fight.”

“We hadn’t quite figured out WHERE we were going to shoot and when the day finally rolled around, we still didn’t have a “definite spot”. So while driving around the Coast, with me pointing out a few spots I’d scouted for them, I suddenly had an epiphany and asked, “Have you guys ever been to the Air Museum in Caloundra?” — We dropped everything, raced over to the Museum and started shooting. We shot practically all day long, then found a nice patch of grass to set-up a cute, quaint little picnic… with a twist.”

Kristen planned and organised the whole aestetic of the shoot and organised all the props. She baked her own cakes and everything.

Love!

A Swedish Rock n Roll Princess Wedding

My & Marcus’ Swedish wedding was planned to reflect their personalities and style. “I always wanted our wedding to be a bit different but not in an exaggerated way,” the bride told me. “I love the small things to be personal and not like everyone else’s and I think we really managed a good balance between traditional and personal elements.”

The wedding took place in a marquee in Hög, Southern Sweden but they actually had a bit of a venue crisis 3 weeks before the wedding. The bride explained, “The venue was actually planned to be held in a large converted warehouse that was made into a big nightclub. Even though our wedding was planned for the middle of the summer, I was terrified that it would be bad weather and because of that I wanted to be in a place that would not be ruined by having rain.”

“We got married after spending just 12 days with each other…”

Oh MAN am I excited to share Krystle & David’s wedding story with you today. The couple got married just twelve days after they properly met and they couldn’t be more in love if they tired. This is their story…

“We met online via our professional wedding photographer forum, DWF.”, the bride told me (they are both professional photographers) “We actually first met when both of us flew across the country to attend the DWF annual convention, in Nashville this past January.”

“We talked that first weekend about getting married and joked around about going to get married by Elvis back then and I told him I would have married him with a ring pop because I just wanted to be with him. We actually decided to just get married mutually, and when he came out to see me the couple days before we eloped to Vegas, he surprised me with a real proposal! We were playing Mario on my Super Nintendo because he swore he was better than me, yea that sucker failed miserably and I kicked his ass. He then pulled out a Star Wars tin lunchbox filled with my favorite Canadian chocolate bars, I love you mints, and dousche bag gum. At the bottom of all of that was a ring pop. He told me he loved me, wanted to be with me forever and then some, and then asked me to marry him. Nothing over the top, but I can’t think of any better way to be proposed to than Mario, chocolate, Star Wars, and wearing sweat pants.”

Ahhh! But it doesn’t stop their people, just you wait until you see their gorgeous wedding!

They were married in Graceland Wedding Chapel and had an informal dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe afterwards. As lovers of all things retro and “obnoxiously bright” Vegas was the perfect place for them. Both being wedding photographers they had seen their fair share of what they didn’t want over the years so the decision to do something completely different was quite an easy one.
