Jon and Lucy’s Autumnal Wedding

One of my oldest friends Jon got married in October to Lucy.  It was a gorgeous autumn day full of laughter and fun.  My good friend David M McNeil did the wedding photography and aren’t they fab!?

I have posted about David’s work many a-time (on the old site – sigh) but I will never tire of doing so, he constantly surprises me with his amazing talent and no two weddings he shoots ever turn out the same.  I will endeavour to re-post some of David’s work asap as anyone who hasn’t seen it is surely missing out!

The wedding was a DIY affair, it was very important to the Bride and Groom that they did things the way they wanted not the way everybody told them to!  They are both very eco-conscious and took this into account with everything they planned.

A Sparkly, Diy, Photoboothy Wedding

I featured Abigail & Michael’s DIY, photoboothy wedding a while back on the old Rock ‘n Roll Bride, yet I have since discovered a plethora of many many more gorgeous pictures – and it’s only fair to share share share!

I love the Bride’s dress and style- its so cute and fun and sparkly! It is actually a prom dress and only cost $470!

The couple tried to do everything themselves – from the food to the flower arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, guestbook, decorations, bar, signature drinks, music playlists, favors and programs (Phew!)

Alastair and Nina really went all out for their elegant Victorian/Deadwood (the tv show) themed wedding.  Check out the guests in those awesome Victorian dresses!

The couple decided not to go for wedding rings and got matching wedding tattoos instead – gotta love this idea!

Blog Love – David McNeil Photography

n783665622_2195411_4027

Regular readers will know I’m all about the love of my photographer friend David who did my Boudoir shoot, our Engagement photos and my post-wedding Bridal shoot. We he’s given me some blog love today so thought I’d repay the favour – go check out his website, believe me it’s amazing!

Who are the readers who have enquired or booked him by finding him via Rock ‘n Roll Bride? I’d love to know – don’t be shy.

From his blog:

Busy Day

Gosh, what a busy day it has been! I spent all day finally getting to grips with my workflow shift over from my PC / Lightroom to MacBook Pro / Aperture, and think I have finally found a way that lets me create some great looking albums every time. It’s amazing how much the little quirks of each system can throw you! I’ll be designing Julie and Dan’s album tomorrow so I’ll let you know how I get on. I’ve also had three further enquiries today for weddings in 2009 which is great, so there’s more names to add to my wee spreadsheet (I have a spreadsheet for everything in my life!).
I think I’m quite a lucky photographer as all the couples I meet are all great fun and are having weddings I’m really looking forward to shooting. With that in mind I thought I’d let everybody know that in January 2009 my website will be revamped with the re-launch of my portrait site and a new pricing structure for my wedding packages.
To secure the 2008 package prices all you have to do is send an email enquiry before 31st December. Exciting additions to the new packages include a day-after shoot, and free-download guest galleries. If you have already booked me then Christmas is a great time to start thinking about your pre-wedding shoot.
I’ll be posting a blog next week to help you start thinking about what style and location is right for you. If you have any ideas I’m always eager to hear them at photography@davidmmcneil.com
Finally a big thank-you to Kat, whose blog and posts have thrown a few enquiries my way! Here she is with a lovely little hat:
