Photographer Ben Blood’s weddings are always kick ass and loved by seemingly the whole of blog land! So when I asked him if I could be the one to share Erin & Erik’s wedding and he said YES! I was over. the. moon!
Just soak up the calm, the beauty and the love…
Neil & Hayley wed at The Rare Breeds animal farm, in Ashford Kent on the probally wettest day of the year! All was not lost however as not only to Hayley get to rock her bridal look with some wellies, but the laid back couple just took it in their stride.
I know I get seemingly over excited with everything I blog, but when Rock n Roll Bride gets to bring you exclusive first shows of weddings like this can you blame me?!
Audra & Bryan’s wedding is modern, sexy, uber stylish and crazy full of love! The event took place at Me by Melia which was recently the home to the cast of The Real World. Andra looks stunning in her cute dress which she got from Nordstroms.
Enjoy little ones…
The second UK wedding of the day is Clare & Dean’s classically beautiful rustic, vintagey romantic wedding. They employed the talents of my good friend Penny Merricks of Tigerlily Weddings to plan their day to perfection. Didn’t she do a fabulous job?
“I made all the invites that featured vintage lovebird stamps and ‘to have and to hold’ ribbon from Cox & Cox“ Clare told me. “Also I handmade the luggage tags for place cards with same vintage bird stamps and ribbon. I asked friends and family to collect glass jam jars for months, and we covered them with lace and ribbon for tea-light holders. A designer friend of ours also made the booklet that contained the history of the barn, order of ceremony, pictures of our parents and grandparents on their wedding days, the menu and the last page contained a quiz about us both… also using the same vintage love bird stamps.”
Featuring UK weddings makes me happy. Not only because I know being a British blogger makes me stand out from the crowd, but because it makes me so happy that us Brits are finally catching up to our American friends in the style stakes! Therefore to celebrate I’m going to blog not one, but two awesome UK weddings today (and a little bit of California dreamin’ at the end of the day – sorry I can’t resist it.)
I’m kicking off with a wedding that’s not only fabulously unique but the bride is in a purple dress! It was actually an Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dress but certainly did the job as a glamorous and unique bridal outfit.
This stunning vintage shoot was put together by Vicky Rowe ( Styling) of Vintage Teasets, Bella & Fifi and Floriture (flowers), Clifton Cakes and photographer Rosie Parsons. Other shout outs needed for the fabulous hair and make up gals – Donna Owens, Sarah Brock & Becky Simpson.
One of the best things about this whole set has got to be the fabulous fashion huh? It looks so authentic and wonderfully unique. They used reproduction and actual vintage dresses supplied by Lindsay Fleming, Elizabeth Avey and Leluxe Clothing. The awesome feathered and diamante head pieces were supplied by Sheena Holland (the crochet wire knit pieces were supplied with the Lindsay Fleming dresses).and wait for it – original 1920’s Manolo Blahniks! Oh hell yes! Well done to everyone involved – truly a triumph.
