If Capa Shot Weddings!

I love featuring weddings from the UK. Have a gander at this little beauty sent in by British photographer Phillip Allen.  They look like that had a lot of fun…

Petia and Chris married in March at Poole Guildhall in Dorset, UK. 
One of the most exciting aspects of the day for me as a photographer 
was a beach landing they made at Studland on the Isle of Purbeck, 
where their reception was held. After the ceremony they sailed out of 
Poole Harbour on a 40 foot yacht with family and close friends (who 
own and crewed the yacht) with a small outboard craft trailing 
behind. As we approached land, bride, groom, photographer and yacht’s 
skipper alighted the outboard and headed for the beach. The water was 
somewhat on the nippy side it not quite yet being Spring in the 
region but it added an exhilarating stimulus to an already exciting 
method of moving between wedding ceremony and reception. Prior to the 
big day I’d been researching Robert Capa’s beach landing shots, 
though thankfully we weren’t under fire on the day in question 
itself! A friend did retrospectively suggest adopting the approach of 
Method Wedding Photography though, stating that I should have ordered 
the groom (and by consequence the bride) to hit the surf face down!

Makes The Ordinary Look Stunning

Great quote huh? Well that’s what Adriene said to me when she send me these fabulous TTV images from a recent same sex wedding she shot.  TTV stands for “Through The Viewfinder” and gives images a vintage, Polaroid-esque look to them.  For more info on TTV clicky here.
Is is also a spooky coincidence that I featured another TTV wedding today, Weird…

These guys are both artists from London who love to surf and so choose to get hitched at Ocean Beach, California, because of the cliffs and the view of the ocean. They asked Adriene to do what she do best and asked her not to do anything traditional which of course made her very happy and resulted in these wonderful images.

Not So Mellow Yellow

This wedding is too damn awesome to be mellow right? The black, white & yellow are a freakin’ fabulous combo!  What a cool couple and what a cool set of photos!

Flowers Flowers Everywhere…

As soon as this wedding landed in my inbox, alongside a lovely message from Christine saying she’d shot this wedding with Rock n Roll Bride in mind…well I was sold.  Not least due to some of the most amazing flowers I have ever seen!  Seriously, these are some of the best diy florals I have ever seen.  The were put together by the Bride’s aunt – she definatly needs to go into the flower business! 
The dress was made by Igigi and the Bride’s hairpeice by Etsy seller Smitten.
