A Laid Back, Homespun Wedding Day

A huge Rock ‘n Roll Bride thank you to Ty of World Image Weddings for sending this gorgeous backyard wedding my way.  Take it away Ty….
James and Lindsey were married last October in the small mountain town of Ojai, California. It was a private back yard wedding with a small group of friends and family in attendance. It rained that day right up until the start of the ceremony when it suddenly stopped, leaving a beautiful sky and wonderful soft light. Everything was very laid back; they served tacos al pastor for dinner (there’s a picture of pastor roasting on a spit), and instead of cake their friends and family brought homemade pies. Everything was put together by their friends; there was no coordinator, no schedule, and no hassles, just a lot of fun.

Fierce.

These just landed in my inbox (boy, my poor email account has been on overdrive today!) and despite my repeated promises to blog less and think more..I can’t, I just can’t.  Hello my name is Kat and I have a blogging addiction.

Shot by Utah photographer Kayleen T, these fierce images show this Bride at her sexiest – hot red shoes, that brilliant ‘reflection in the puddle thing’ and the amazing turquoise wall –  just fabulous!
Thanks for sending these my way Kayleen, keep up the rockin’ work!

London Calling

I admit defeat, blogging less is an impossible task for me.  I just received these fantastic photographs from UK photographer Julia Boggio.  I’ve lusted after Julia’s work from a far for a while now, and as I said last time I featured her “If you haven’t seen Julia Boggio’s amazing work yet you really really need to.  You need this in your life!”

Th ceremony of this quitensentailly London wedding took place at The Guards Chapel, St James which made for some fantastic (and cheeky) snaps (the Queen’s guards are not allowed to react to anything going on around them, they can’t smile, flinch or anything – I love being British sometimes – what a weird tradition!) 
The Bride wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and made her own fascinator for the evening part of the do. She wore a veil for the ceremony and then changed headpieces for the evening.

I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I have – seeing the London Eye in these shots makes me feel all patriotic!

A Tasty Treat

I am really trying this new thing where I blog less because I’m starting to get blogger’s guilt for not giving each post enough time at the top spot..however it is really really hard for me…I keep finding all this stuff and arrrgh I feel the need to share!  What do you guys think?  From your survey responses, most of you wanted as many posts as possible…

Anyway, after you see this I’m sure you will forgive me, look at these cute little cakes!  The Bride Kylene, a photographer herself, decided against traditional floral arrangements in favour of centrepieces with much more flavour (omg I hate myself for actually writing that but I actually couldn’t resist!) 
This is such a great and tasty idea – plus when they cut their cake they asked the longest married couple on each table to cut each individual cake..it’s just so sweet (literally)

I have actually surpassed myself in this post with the edible quips so I’m just going to share the photographs now before you start to hate me!

Video Star – Nicole & Joe

I am so flattered at the great response I’ve gotten from you all after I posted my scary video – you have all been lovely! 

However Nicole went one step further still and sent me the link to her own wedding video for me to have a look at.  It reminds me of a short promo video or a music video, its subtle yet effective and doesn’t drag on which is one thing I dread when watching wedding videos! 
I really do adore this video, it has such a lovely soft feel, almost like a vintage super-8 film which is mirrored in the beautiful yet subtle vintage tones of the actual wedding. 

Nicole said that they actually very nearly didn’t get a wedding video, but this actually ended up being one of their most favourite parts of their wedding!  If there had been someone that I knew of here in the UK that shot gorgeous wedding videos like this we may have chanced our minds about that too!

Thanks so much for sharing Nicole & Joe, for more details and photographs from their wedding clicky here
I’m now really look forward to seeing many more of your wedding videos!

All The Colours Of India

Amber Hughes is a photographer from Canada who sent me the link to her website yesterday.  I had a quick browse and there was no question in my mind that I had to share this beautiful day after session. 

I would love to go to an Indian wedding – the colours are just so dramatic and the clothes – just wow, check out the amazing detail of that dress.

The use of the sourrounding architecture in these images is just so impressive and sticking, it really punctuates the photographs don’t you think?

Thanks for sending these my way Amber – I love them!
