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.

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

Oh how I do love an extravaganza..especially one as amazing as this one! Fae describes her wedding below:
The deal goes down at Walt Disney World, with 18th century inspired attire (blue dress!), and a tea party reception. Hand-fasting and vows from Broadway shows. Versailles meets Wonderland. Croquet. A masquerade dessert party. DIY-ing pretty much everything I can.
Yeah, it’s corny and over the top, but we’re corny, over the top people. There will be none of this half-assed princessery here. My whole ass will be princessy.
I NEVER planned to have much of a wedding, but after frustration with other venues, and a bout of the “let’s just go to the courthouse”, I gave in to WDW. I originally mentioned it just as passing fancy, it was Eric who thought we should go for it. …when he saw you could arrive in Cinderella’s Coach. Yeah, we’re both pretty much 8-yr old girls on the inside.
And I’ll probably catch hell from someone about this, but it’s our favorite damn place to be, lame as that is. So if you can get married in your favorite place, why not?
Fae is a doll clothing designer for Blythe and made a doll in one of her dresses too (cute!) whilst I love this dress, for me it’s all about that blue Cinderella dress – proper fairytale! Love it love it love it! A huge thanks to Fae for sharing the joy!
