Ever since going to Japan on our honeymoon, myself and Gareth have been obsessed with all things Oriental. Whilst Hello Kitty, Sake and Sushi are obviously awesome, I similarly clearly have a soft spot for weddings from the Far East. The Chinese and Japanese are just so photogenic! Especially this dude – check out his awesome trainers, geeky glasses and bowtie combo – cute!
This portraits by Kellie Kano are simply stunning. Don’t you just love that sun, lens flare thing? (I’m sure there is an official term for this!) It really makes all the sparkles on the Bride’s dress pop!

Quite apart from the fact that these images are flippin’ gorgeous, I am all about this Bride’s head wear and her blue necklace & earring combo. Uber Stylish

I am going to give you a terrible example of how to wedding plan right now. When we were choosing our photographers, we didn’t do what all the magazines tell you to and meet with as many photographers as possible to decide who suits us best. I found English Rose Photography, we met them and we booked them… We knew as soon as we saw their gorgeous photographs that they were who we wanted, and as soon as we met them we knew they were perfect for our wedding.
The reason I’m telling you this is because like English Rose, Linda Chaja uses film in her camera instead of a memory card. Now, the fact that John & Jill of English Rose used film wasn’t the thing that sold them to us – it was their style, their personalities and their love of weddings that did it…however looking back I think its really nice to have ‘real’ photographs, not just a digital image on a screen, to remember our wedding. Sure, I know you can print off digital images just as you can with film..but think of it like this – why would anyone choose to use a Polaroid camera? Exactly, there’s no logical reason..it’s simply because Polaroid’s rock.
But aaaaanyway, I digress…what I actually wanted to say (and could have said in literally one sentence) was that Linda Chaja uses film…and I like it.

Paisley ties are so sexy (no, honestly I really love them!)

I started out a Twitter sceptic, but I thought I’d join as it seemed to be the ‘in’ thing to do (especially as a blogger – everyone’s on it!) I started off tentatively, dipping my toes into proverbial pool so so speak, not really knowing what to expect and well basically, not ‘getting’ it.
However now I am sold. I love it! Twitter has put me in touch with so many of my readers (yey for saying hello) as well as other bloggers and photographers.
Lyndzee of EP Love was such a Twitter find…well she found me, then I found her website and I found myself at a little gem of a wedding. Tadaaa..behold, a little Twitter masterpiece
