Holga, Music & Diy A-Plenty

Oh how I love a holga-photographed wedding! I can’t help but applaud a couple who take the risk with such a camera…I tried my hand at holga photography a while back and promptly gave up!

Katie & Kevin had a perfectly personal diy wedding. Katie loves crafting and so made everything, and I mean everything, herself. One of my favourite bits had to be the hand-dyed coffee filters used as hanging paper ‘flowers’. She also made the felt bouquet and the groomsmen’s custom cuff links herself too!

A Graphic designer by day, she did all the graphics on her invitations, save the dates, bridesmaid guide and rehearsal dinner invitations herself. They also included a CD gift with all her escort cards for guests to find their tables. It was a mix of love songs that her and Kevin had DJRJ play at the wedding. She handmade the table settings including tin can candle holders and framed menus.

High Rocks

When I featured Nadia & Damien’s London engagement session back in January I just knew their wedding would be a beaut’ and these images sent over by the lovely Eliza Claire certainly haven’t disappointed.

The pair got married at The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which proved a pictureqesue venue with dramatic ‘high rocks’ outside. These acted as the perfect backdrop for some stunning portraits. Nadia looked every bit the glamorous bride in her Stephanie Allin dress which not only has a belt and lace over-lay but had pockets. Yes! stylish and quirky!

A Little Bit of Rock n Roll Magic

I’ve got another Luella’s Boudoir-related post for you now (can to tell I’m excited about tonight?!) Becci & Mark’s wedding is a pretty special one, for more reason than one. Not only did the pair find their photographer David McNeil through Rock n Roll Bride, but Becci also found and discovered the amazing vintage jewellery experts, Magpie Vintage. Who wouldn’t fall in love with their amazing designs after all!? As a DIY bride (Becci’s made her own dress from an original 1930’s pattern as well as her flowers and all the decor and details for their wedding) unfortunately the jewellery pieces she fell in love with were slightly out of her price range. However with a little bit of Rock n Roll Bride magic I was able to pull a few strings for her and the lovely ladies at Magpie Vintage were kind enough to lend her the gorgeous headband and necklace you see her wearing! How amazing is that?!

All You Need is Love

I’m a big Beatles fan. I love the emotion and feeling behind their lyrics, so much so that our first dance was ‘All you need is Love’ – the words of which I have tattooed on the inside of my wrist! So when photographer Amelia sent me Rachel & Joey’s Beatles themed engagement sesh, I jumped at the chance of a feature. I adore the adaptions of each song and famous moment – especially of course the John & Yoko Hair Peace Bed Peace scene. How many can you spot?
