Rock n Roll Bride seems to be going all continental today, Ukrainian photographer Nikolay Kucan is up next. Due to the whole language barrier thing I’m afraid I don’t know anything about this wedding, but when Nikolay sent me an email with just a link to these images I still felt them worthy of a post.
I love her cute short/long dress, the picturesque town location (is it just me or does it almost look like a movie set?!) the fairytale feel of the photographs in the woods and the Bride rocking out with buskers on the street. They look like they had an absolute blast… I only wish I could share more with you.

What about this sexy couple then? An old Hollywood, film noir style mixed with that unique Russian flair… gorgeous

Russian Photographer Catherine Alechinsky has send me a selection of her wonderfully surreal, fairytale-like images. These remind me of the sort of images you’d find illustrating a fantasy story. I’m going start with this cute couple…I love her hairband, she reminds me of a sweet little doll or Alice in Wonderland or something. I have looked at a lot of Russian photographers work recently (more to come) and their style is just so different to anything you see if the UK or the US. It’s almost weird…gorgeously weird though!
Thanks to Catherine for sending me these and to reader Chanelle for drawing my attention to her work.

Have you been eagerly sitting by your computer waiting for the next installment of Teneisha & Chris’ crazy-gorgeous wedding extravaganza? I certainly have..every 5 minutes I’ve been checking my email to see if the rest of the photographs have been sent to me…sad? yes, yes I am.
Now if you thought their engagement shoot was to die for then you ain’t seen nothing yet!
I’m actually going to stop gabbing on about it and hand straight over to the couple who have described their wedding and their idea of what makes a rock n roll wedding absolutely perfectly…
The objective for our wedding, besides getting married, was about two things. The first was a goal that every single person have a completely kick ass time, including ourselves, and the second being that we would do things our way, no questions asked. We solved the “having fun” issue pretty easily by getting married on a Saturday evening, in Las Vegas; with a premium open bar and an excellent ipod play list. We served sushi and had chocolate covered strawberries instead of cake at our reception and had an open invitation after-party with a bathtub full of beer and debauchery that lasted until 5am. We also encouraged people to get creative with the dress code, which produced a very colorful crowd.
I think that our Bride and Groom outfits helped to set the right mood as well. I wore a vintage inspired, Sherri Hill polka dotted blue/gold/silver dress with all bright red accessories that I either made myself or bought from independent artists on etsy.com. I had the dress shortened from ballroom to tea length, which everyone tried to talk me out of and I’m so glad I didn’t listen! The groom wore crazy blue pants, suspenders, a fedora and an awesome bow tie that matched my dress perfectly.
You love this couple right? Yeah me too. Again, I can’t thank Teneisha & Chris’ and their wonderful photographer Holly Jones enough for sharing this amazing wedding with me!
