Giddy With Bloggy Excitement

OK so I’m pretty much giddy with excitement over sharing this Las Vegas engagement session and wedding sent to me by photographer Holly Jones. Chronologically it makes sense to start with the engagements right? I am c-c-c-crazy about Teneisha’s pink dress and yellow shoe combo and of course the Neon Graveyard makes for a completely awesome backdrop. EEEK I can’t wait to show you the wedding later – she has the most gorgeous green, polka-dotted dress!

Thanks to photographer Holly and the Bride & Groom, Teneisha & Chris for sending me this ridiculously exciting set.

Theological

A scholoristic wedding with a Best Girl rocking it in a top hat is something to be shared. Sharon & Dan definitely went all out to make sure their wedding was truly original, even so far has having the one of a kind 1925 Studebaker as their wedding transport. They also had a theologian conduct their ceremony which was written with the work of Lord Byron, William Morris and Walt Whitman in mind.

If you want to know more about this highly intellectual wedding, check out the Groom’s Blog!

Edit: I just recieved an emaiol from the Groom with some great bonus info about their wedding..check it!
We wanted to include a little of all our favourite things in our wedding – thankfully, it all worked together! Sharon’s an artist and curator and I’m a historian and philosopher, so it was only appropriate to hold our ceremony at Villa Alba – a historical house turned museum preserving amazing examples of Aesthetic mural art.

We went for a peacock theme overall – blues, greens and violets – and couldn’t have been happier with the result. Peacocks are associated with empty vanity, but I find them philosophically compelling; it’s been scientifically demonstrated that a peacock’s display is a genuine reflection of its overall health – that’s the evolutionary advantage. Really, they’re a symbol of beauty as the product of abundant life, the kind of happy and creative life we have together.

We both designed our own outfits – each is a mix of early and late 19th century design, Regency and Belle Époque – and our respective dressmakers did amazing work. Most of the accessories  are vintage or from independent designers, on Etsy or around Melbourne.Our Bridesmaid and Best Girl, Nix and Charis, are both long-time dear friends. Nix’s dress was by the same dressmaker as Sharon’s, and Charis’s suit and waistcoat from the same vintage shop and tailor which provided my brooch and outfit. Charis’s mother – indeed a leading Doctor of Theology – agreed to conduct our ceremony, for which we are eternally grateful!

Special thanks to photographer Jessie for sharing this wedding with me.

Garden Rose

I have something to say and it may be shocking to some of you…I don’t ‘get’ Martha Stewart…what is they fascination? I’m just as crafty as the next geek but something about her repulses me just a little bit. Maybe it’s because the first time I ever heard of her was when she went to jail (I’m in the UK, not Mars by the way) or because whenever I catch her on Wedding TV (yes I am that sad…) I feel inclined to run away. I mean, she’s not very rock n roll is she?

However, I just saw this wedding on her ridiculously kitch (although it pains me to know it’s not even in an ironic way) wedding website, and despite the source this wedding is so uber gorgeous that I have to share the love.

John & Lily married in Lily’s parent’s back garden which had great sentimental value for the couple. Lily’s beautiful bouquet was made of bridal garden roses, dahlias, orchids, lily of the valley, jasmine, sweetpeas, and scented geranium, all tied together with a cute blue ribbon. She also ordered some custom Liberty fabric clutches for her Bridesmaids, each designed to fit the individual girl’s personality.

Clicky here for more images and info, and let me know – am I the only wedding obsessive that doesn’t love the Stewart?

Polka Dot Bride

When Leslie & Steve got married they decided to all kick it with their Converse trainers (that’s Chucks to you guys in the States), even the Bride got in on the action, rocking her green trainers under her beyond awesome polka dot dress (I am still waiting to find out where she got it from, don’t worry I will let you know when I do!) The theme was glorious green which really brightened up an otherwise cold winter wedding.

Edit: Leslie’s dress is by Galina
