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

An Inspired Choice

Photographers Craig & Chanelle Segerius-Bruce met Andy & Kim way back in 2007 in Zanzibar, when they (the photographers) were on their own honeymoon. The wedding took place at Parley Manor in Dorset and Kim wore a Benjamin Roberts dress. I am loving the vintage VW cars and that amazing sunset!
However my favourite of all these images, has to be the Jeff Newsom-inspired swirly light shot..mean, moody and very very cool.

I am doing a photo shoot with Chanelle soon..I am very excited about it as the concept we have come up with is quite different to what you might be seeing everywhere else right now…hint: I’m getting all crafty with black tulle!

Will You Marry Me…Tonight?

I love sharing wedding videos, especially ones with a twist and this shoot by Steve of Studio+Z Films
The Bride and Groom told their guests they were having  a destination wedding in Florida on July 4th, and wanted their friends and family to come to a pre wedding celebration on June 27th.  What the guests didn’t know is that they were actually getting married that night.  Daphne, the Bride asked Steve to produce a film to entertain the guests and He created this concept.  Basically, while this film is playing, the Bride and Groom snuck behind the huge projection screen and when the film ended, the screen rose up to reveal them standing there with a priest actually getting married.  Steve told me that the place went absolutely nuts and they actually showed the film a few more times that night!  
What a fun, original and rock n roll idea…and after watching this film I think you’ll agree ths actual video is second to none in it’s style, sass and gorgeousness!
A huge thank you to Steve for sharing this wonderful film with me.

A Vintage Masterpiece

If Ginny & Ed’s vintage wedding isn’t featured on every wedding blog out there I will eat my..well, hat. Does photographer Josh Goleman get the best clients or what?! Remember these guys for example? Yep…amazing!

Although my automatic reaction is usually to be against the idea of asking guests to dress as per the theme of your wedding, I have to admit the effect of everyone vintaged-up together is phenomonal to say the least. I am literally dying of excitement to share these!

For Those About To Rock…

With a rock star Groom like Jeremy would you expect anything less than a wedding like this? The couple choose an awesome venue and had live music a go go! They walked down the aisle to Led Zeppelin and had friends playing an acoustic set during their ‘cocktail lounge’. The speeches sound like they were somewhat epic, with Alison’s brother even getting everyone shout “For those about to rock, we salute you” at the end of his toast! Jeremy’s parents rapped during their speech and Alison’s dad sang for his.

For favours the couple made a ‘Rock Star Survival Kit’ including a custom guitar pick, a shot glass and bubble gum. The couple also got their wedding rings engraved with the words ‘you rock’ on his, and ‘you rule’ on hers (made by The Devil’s Workshop)…definitely not the usual soppy stuff! Alison’s dress was by Alfred Angelo, her hair piece by Etsy seller, GG Designs and her gorgeous bouquet & Jeremy’s boutonniere were made by Princess Lasertron.

Hat, Park, Dog!

I think this wedding is quite different to the style I usually favour, but I still love it! The hat reminds me of going to English weddings where all the ladies wear big adornments on their heads.

Photographer Courtney, described this day to me:
Megan and Norm were married on May 30, 2009 at Willow Park in Louisville, Ky. That had no attendants, except for their “ring dog” Misha.

Megan didn’t opt for traditional hand-held bouquet instead chose to
compliment her outfit with a huge, gorgeous hat.
The Bride and Groom opted to accent their wedding with fleur-de-lis, a symbol of Louisville. While the guests noshed away on vegetarian friendly fare, trashcans were adorned with signs informing everyone that all the serving ware was fully biodegradable.

The music before the ceremony and during the ceremony was provided by
local musician friends, and the guests danced during the reception to the
musical stylings of a ragtime band, Rascals of Ragtyme.
