Mick Jagger, Glastonbury & English Fish ‘n Chips

This could quite possibly be the most emotionally charged ceremony I’ve ever seen! So. Much. Love. The intimate wedding (only 15 guests) took place at The Kings Road Registry Office and was followed by some good old fashioned English fish n’ chips. Quite apart from all this awesome, the couple, Fox & Cassie, are actually very cool themselves. Fox has made a record, written a book and played at Glastonbury and he was desperate to get married at the same venue as his hero Mick Jagger.

Cool & Colourful

Mindy & Ben of Studio 6.23‘s photo session with the fabulous Amelia Lyon makes me so happieeee! Anyone thank knows me will be well aware what a colour fiend I am and so when I saw this I knew it was perfect for a-featuring!

“Mindy emailed me to set up the session a few months prior” Amelia explained. “When Justin and I met them at WPPI, we had a blast getting to know them as bright, playful, hilarious, photogenic, and super cool people to hang with!”

A Bride in Boots

Oh Dan & Dayna you’ve made my day! What an awesome wedding and a fantastic story. I’ve been dying to share these all weekend! I knew this would be an awesome wedding in fact as soon a photographer Matthew told me that the bride was part of the Vaudeville Circus (you can see her in action here – far right in the white dress)

“I wanted to have a rock-n-roll wedding that felt like Dan and I had our hands all over” explained Dayna  “I spent a lot of time pouring over wedding blogs and getting inspiration from cool brides.  I picked themes that we both loved like reading, hence the book center pieces and framed quotes from our favorite authors, Fall and the month of October (the colors and flowers),  simple down home (and cheap!) mason jars as vases.  All of our music the entire day was hand picked and never ‘traditional’: wedding procession we had our friend play the ukulele, bridal march was Cat Powers “Sea of Love” (followed by The Honeydrippers “Sea of Love” for our first dance), our walk as husband and wife was Joey Ramone’s “Wonderful World”.  Our flower girls wore homemade tutu’s, leotards and ballet slippers. We had a drawing after dinner with silly gifts of our life so far (a DVD of the first movie we saw, a pint glass from the restaurant where we met, a dvd of “It’s a Wonderful Life” cuz we’re nerds and watch it every year…). It was a rockin’ day for sure!”

A Symbol of their Love

Kim & Josh’s springtime engagement shoot took place at Meridian Hill Park in Washington DC. The leaf bouquet Kim & Josh had made from a cutting of a plant they were growing it in a vase. When photographer Levi, ran the idea of having flowers play a part in the shoot, instead of going out and buying cut flowers, they all thought it would be great to use a plant that they plan to grow for a long time…almost like a symbol of their love.

French Vintage Glam

Rebecca & Michael wanted a French/Hollywood vintage glam style shoot to signify their engagement. They loved the idea of having a whimsical, vintage feel and Rebecca’s inspiration was that she wanted a shoot that really meant a lot to them as a couple.  The fascinator she wore belonged to her grandma when she was young for example.

“We were able to create some old Hollywood romance in a local cafe” Australian photographer Tenielle told me. “It looksed as if it belonged in the French countryside. The Cafe we shot at was called ‘Cafe Bouquiniste’, and the owner Meredith has a love for Paris, Books and all things French as you can tell.”
