Quirky & Stunning, British Wedding

Forgive me, but I literally almost wet myself when I saw these shots from the hottest, newest photographer on the block, Emma Case – and can you believe it, this is only her first official ‘Emma Case wedding’! (I’ve featured a wedding she shot for a friend before she decided to pursue it full time.) I got a very excitable email from the lady herself this morning and I couldn’t wait to get home to share these right away.

“Well, here it is, my very first, official, didn’t know the couple before, professional, as ‘Emma Case Photography’ wedding!” She began.
“Christie contacted me back in November and straight away I knew just how ace she was. Not only did she mention fake moustaches and knee-sliding as part of the wedding plan but she was funny and honest and completely on my wavelength. We emailed back and forth in a ‘know each other already’ type of way and by the time me and Pete were driving up to Devon on the 30th January I was a little nervous but so excited to finally meet her (we didn’t get the chance beforehand) and her soon to be husband… the Berninator!
The wedding was held at the most amazing Huntsham Court… oh man the bathroom in the bridal suite was AMAZING, oh and the library… and the… well you can see for yourselves, the whole house is stunning!

Quirky & Stunning, British Wedding

👰

Forgive me, but I literally almost wet myself when I saw these shots from the hottest, newest photographer on the block, Emma Case - and can you believe it, this is only her first official 'Emma Case wedding'! (I've featured a wedding she shot for a friend before she decided to pursue it full time.) I got a very excitable email from the lady herself this morning and I couldn't wait to get home to share these right away. "Well, here it is, my very first, official, didn't know the couple before, professional, as 'Emma Case Photography' wedding!" She began. "Christie contacted me back in November and straight away I knew just how ace she was. Not only did she mention fake moustaches and knee-sliding as part of the wedding plan but she was funny and honest and completely on my wavelength. We emailed back and forth in a 'know each other already' type of way and by the time me and Pete were driving up to Devon on the 30th January I was a little nervous but so excited to finally meet her (we didn't get the chance beforehand) and her soon to be husband... the Berninator! The wedding was held at the most amazing Huntsham Court... oh man the bathroom in the bridal suite was AMAZING, oh and the library... and the... well you can see for yourselves, the whole house is stunning! The ceremony (that I wasn't allowed to photograph.. grumble, grumble) was beautiful with a really heartfelt speech from both Christie and Bernie's sisters (I'm gonna have to man up in this profession as I could feel myself going) and then food was served followed by a wonderfully proud speech from the Father of the Bride and a particularly funny song by the Best Man and his guitar! Instead of a wedding cake they had a 'pig'nata (pinata) and for the evening entertainment 'Gabby Young & Other Animals' played their socks off (you need to check this band out) and EVERYONE was dancing! Finish it all off with about 3 hours of The Photo Booth which had me literally in pain through laughing too much and you have all the ingredients for one hot wedding." Thanks to the lovely Emma for sharing these, and I KNOW we'll be seeing a lot more greatness from this girlie (and I can't wait to finally meet her soon!)

A Nerdy, Geeky & Darling Wedding

Dena & Patrick’s wedding is certainly Rock n Roll to the max! I adore her cute shoes that show off her gorgeous foot tattoos  (I’m so shallow) and that fabulous dress which was Madison by Priscilla of Boston “It had a belt and pockets!” Dana told me ” so I just HAD to have it! I even kept my iphone in my pocket and snapped photos with it during the day” The bridesmaids matched the yellow and grey theme by wearing various grey dresses from Alfred Angelo. The pair were married in the oldest catholic church in Philadelphia (Old St. Joseph’s) and had their reception at an old bank that was the Philadelphia Real World House which has now been turned into an art gallery called Trust House.

My favourite part of Dana's email to me was her 'wedding highlights' so I wanted to share them with you ♥ Taking my bridal portraits in the burial ground where Ben Franklin and several other founding fathers are buried. It is traditionally good luck for brides to throw a penny on Ben's grave for prosperity! ♥ Taking a taxi to the church which was 4 blocks from the hotel where i got ready and mom freaking out ♥ The art in the gallery. It was a total surprise because they had just hung a brand new show that week. ♥ There was an amazing portraits of a nude Kim Kardasian upstairs and a painted version of Lindsay Lohan's mug shot. Our family both young and old loved it and thought it was so us! ♥ Also being a bride who rocks glasses! ♥ Ending the night with a group singalong to queen!!

Beautiful Brides

Not only have I been lucky enough to be sent a whole lot of amazing same sex weddings recently, but I’ve received emails from readers who have been loving the posts, so it is with great pleasure that I present Erin & Lauren’s beautiful wedding today. I really love the simple, clean lines of their dresses and all the emotion behind these images. Be sure to also check out their slideshow after the ‘jump’.

The Cutest Rock n Roll Picnic

Yes, yes yes this post is heeeuge. Photographer Shannon sent me a little sneaky peak of Josiah & Dana’s engagement session and I swooned as soon as I saw the shot with the silver glittery curtain behind them…but then I saw the coffee shop they started in, the photo booth shots and the cutest Rock n Roll picnic ever and I was smitten.

“This couple is sooooooooooooo cool.” Shannon told me. “Like, truly, I went away from the session thinking “Man, I have to start being cooler” because they were literally too cool. Oh, and they have great style.”

“We started at a local coffee shop, one that hosts underground bands and indie music and art shows. This space had so much character and we really spent way more time there than we intended because it was fun and completely different than the normal coffee shop vibe! We even took photobooth pictures, and pictures of them taking photobooth pictures. Then we went to a woodsy area (a secret spot of mine) and they set up a little rock n roll picnic. They brought a record player and some vinyl records, beer bottles as flower vases, cupcakes (YUM), and a few of their favorite books. Overall, it was probably one of the cutest picnics I’ve seen. Plus we all love cupcakes so that was a perk.”
