Punk Rock

I have a cocktail induced sore head today so posting may be lighter and/or make no sense today. I am struggling to string a sentence together…
This shoot by Kelly Moore kind of made my head hurt even more due to all the brightness but I love it too much not to post. Of course there is no relation to weddings at all within this shoot, but it’s so pretty it’s worth a mini deviation.

Under The Spotlight – Lara Jade

So I don’t usually post a selection of photographers work, preferring to focus on one wedding, engagement or photo shoot instead of a bit of a mish-mash. However I believe I am able to make an exception for Lara Jade. The twenty year old (yes I know!) fashion photographer, originally from Tamworth but now living in London, is quite frankly so inspiring and talented that she really deserves every single image of hers to be posted.

Lara’s fashion and editorial style is second to none. Just check out these images and tell me you’re not in love with them?

Unfortunately with her being so fabulous and all, her work is often stolen and used illegally (and yes I did get permission for this post!) If you fancy hearing more about this then I just found this fab BBC video all about it.

Thanks to the gorgeous Lara for working with me on the post (note: I now have a total girl-crush on her.)
If you are a photographer or vendor yourself and are interested in being a subject in an ‘Under the Spotlight’ feature then get in touch for all the info!

Young Love

Dalton & Abby may have only just started college, but already in love they decided to getengaged. To celebrate they had this gorgeous shoot with the very lovely Shannon Nicole Smith who evidently knows I never say no to shoots with balloons!

By the way, have you checked out the fabulous ‘New York Love’ contest yet? If you’re in NY and in L.O.V.E you simply must enter. It’s the rules.

Multi-Coloured Tresses

My life as a blogger is a pretty damn busy one. I’m not just saying this for effect, but I get sent so much amazing stuff to post everyday that I almost can’t keep up!

The next post of this early Wednesday morning ( have no clue why I’m up so early, I even drank a whole bottle of wine last night) belongs to one of my brand spanking new sponsors, Stacy Able. As soon as I saw this set I knew she not only had to send it to me for posting but she had to make it the image for her new sponsor link. The multi-coloured tresses, the splattered paint, the cute dog…oh yeah baby my sponsors are the bestest.

A Punk Rock Fairytale

Alysson & David’s wedding was a fusion of traditional, rock n roll and crazy offbeat awesome hair! Even though they were married in a church (that was a converted school by David’s father who is a pastor) this couple certainly dared to walk off that beaten aisle! As photographer, Daniel Krieger said to me…

The couple tore up the dance floor once some loud punk music came on the stereo.. the atmosphere of the wedding was just a chill, fun time.. people with different coloured hair and regular looking aunts all on the dance floor together.

Alysson’s taffeta-free Amsale dress was accoumpanied it with some shoes by Chinese Laundry, bought from DSW

The rock star credentials don’t stop there though. Not only did The Ramones play at their reception (!) but they had a pair of guests, Tish and Snooky, that not only used to be in Blondie (ARRGH!) but are the founders of Manic Panic (kick ass hair colour dye.) I think right now I owe those two a huge thank you for creating such amazing rainbow hair dye!

Thanks to Daniel for sending this off the wall, offbeat, rock star wedding to me!
