You’re The One That I Want

As soon as I saw these engagements I thought to myself  ‘oooh Grease!’ and it turns out I was right, photographer Stacey Ilyse was going for a 1950′s rockabilly style with this gorgeous session.

The photos took place on Coney Island  and since Megan and Nathan love vintage, especially the 50s and are planning on having a 50s –esk Christmas wedding this upcoming Dec.  We took the photos to go with that look since they also wanted to incorporate their engagement photos into their wedding day, using moo cards with their photos on them as “ornaments” on the Christmas tree ~ on the other side will have all the guests names and table seats.

The couple are getting married in December and Stacey assures me she will send me the results afterward..woo!

Handmade

Wow. This has got to be one of my favourite DIY/handmade weddings ever…the Bride even made her dress! What a gorgeous, homely, hilarious, personal and rustic feel this beautiful barn wedding has. I have never seen so many genuinely happy people. It makes me smile.

OK so I went crazy with the amount of photographs I’m adding to this post – but you know, I was actually kinda restrained! Click here for more, including all the preparations…

Thanks Bertie (as always!)  Edit: Remember this engagement shoot? Well I’ve just realised it’s their wedding..no wonder it’s so amazing. This two are too stylish for words.

Vintage In Style

Oh OK then..another one from The Nichols!

Not only are the photographs ridiculously gorgeous, but the couple are just as ridiculously stylish. Lindsey’s green dress and veil combo are just a little hint of bridal with out being overly so, and Jarreux has definitely got that JT hat/smart suit combo down to a T!

…and that red bag, and that belt, and the vintage suitcase…too.much.style!

Converse Bride

I have been looking forward to sharing some of The Nichol’s work for the last few days, and now after a through perusal of their blog I have found a load of their weddings I just have to share..starting with this one. This blue and orange themed outdoorsy wedding is sure to float your boat, and who says Converse are just for the Groom?!

A Little Bit Of Bias Never Hurt Anyone

I’m so totally and completely biased when it comes to my friend David McNeil’s photography and I don’t care…the thing is, he is just so amazingly talented for which  I am more than a little bit envious! Plus he’s lovely and all that jazz…which just makes his work even more fantastic. In fact when we met our competition winners, Vana & Damien a few weeks ago, whilst looking though David’s portfolio, Vana said ‘It really seems like you know all the people you photograph‘ and that’s just it, that’s why he is so great, none of his images seem staged or forced or awkward – and you know what, now I’m a little bit annoyed now that I didn’t coin that phrase myself!

Anyway, David has got a super busy month coming up so I’ll have plenty of wonderful weddings, engagements and bridal shoots to share with you, starting with this gorgeous, intimate afternoon tea wedding in London. Isn’t her dress just to die for? (edit: her dress is from Candy Anthony)

International Goth

I really really love these! A little bit of international charm for a snoozy Sunday afternoon. What is it with those Europeans making everything looks so damn arty!?

Katya & Andrey are from St. Petersburg in Russia and after getting married, flew that very day to Prague for their Honeymoon and wedding day shoot! They also purchased many of their wedding items from here in the UK…I told you they were truly international!
Katya’s dress was from Gothic Wedding Dresses and her hat was from no other that Primark! (If you have never heard of Primark then you are seriously missing out..high street fashion but so ridiculously cheap that you don’t feel guilty filling a basket with a whole wardrobes worth of clothes on each visit…think £2 for s t-shirt, £5 for a pair of shoes, £8 for a bag – oh yes!) Andrey’s suit was made to measure at a shop in Camden Market.

Thanks so much to Tomasz for sharing these with me.
