I love a quirky London wedding just as much as the next person so I whooped with joy when Connie & Jonny’s was send my way. “We wanted to bring all our friends and family together for a massive party to celebrate us getting hitched” the bride began. “We kept certain traditions – getting everyone to sit down and have a big feed, and speeches etc, but we weren’t keen on all the flowery formal bits, so to keep things lighthearted and personal we had the lovely ukelele band. We put our friends and family on a routemaster bus back to the reception (at Lena Restaurant) Amazing food, great party space downstairs with loads of champagne. A friend drove my dad and I to the town hall in his VW camper van, and took Jonny and I (with music booming, a healthy supply of champagne) back to the reception (we drove back via regent’s park and stopped off in the sunshine to take it all in). Not really up for flowery delicate invites, we got Hanway print centre to print us some bright orange postcards. Jonny’s dad made the wedding cake and my mom and friends organised the flowers.”
Jacquie & Robby’s fun yet sexy engagements were sent over to me today. I instantly fell in love with her funky style (her ‘Leopard Lolita Dress’ is by Stop Staring she got it from Daddy-o’s) and their ‘poking-fun’ attitude – gotta love that ‘RIP Rob’ graffiti behind them!
“We had these pictures taken in March 2010 on the outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland” Jacquie explained. “We explored the area and happened to come across the graffiti that said “RIP Rob” and although I usually hate that old idea that once a man is married his life is over, but I couldn’t resist taking a picture seeing that my fiance name is Robby! Also, we stumbled across that old red car and we loved the pictures near the car so much, we used one for our save the dates. If you take a look at the pictures of us near the car, you will notice that a train went by while we were shooting. That day seemed like it was really meant to be.”
Oh I have been so excited about sharing this shoot with you all! I’m sure most of you will be familiar with this gorgeous little family. Naomi is the beautiful girl behind the uber popular Rockstar Diaries blog and her husband Josh and their new dog Kingsley play a staring role in it. These guys really are wonderful people. Sweet, kind and darling. Their blog posts never fail to cheer me and they just seem so genuinely LOVELY!
OK enough gushing…you’re going to adore these images taken at the DC Cherry Blossom Festival by their wedding photographer Leo Patrone (who I’m hoping to meet when he comes over to London soon!) The light, the colours, the fashion, the fun and lurrrve…aww just so perfect.
