Defiantly Joyful, Same Sex Wedding

The reader’s survey has now closed. I will be announcing the winner and sharing some of the results later on today. However reader, Sari said I should be featuring more rock n roll lesbians, which of course I would love too – but it all depends on what I’m sent or what I find on my wedding hunts.  However today you are in luck, as photographer Stephen Loewinsohn send me this gorgeous, and stylish lesbian wedding just yesterday! 

Stephen said:
These brides have tons of rockstar style and swagger, and their wedding was just gorgeous in every way. From the amazing outdoor setting, to the beautiful and delicious food, awesome outfits, and just the feeling of love in the air, this was just a really special wedding. 

As you know, same-sex marriages are no longer legally recognized in the state of California, but these brides love each other so much that they decided to go ahead and have an awesome wedding anyway. I’m a strong believer in marriage equality as believe you are too. This wedding was an act of rebellion against a stupid law, and what’s more rock ‘n’ roll than rebellion?

Definitely rock n roll and definitely beautiful! Thank you so much Stephen!

Under Pressure?

I always wonder who photographers choose to take their own wedding photographs. Oh the pressure of having to shoot a fellow professional’s wedding! Benj Haisch and his gorgeous fiance Maddie definitely lucked out by having Sean Flanigan shoot their engagements…you might actually call it a perk of the job having such talented friends!

Thanks for these Sean, I look forward to sharing much more of your fabulous work in future!

Swimming, Jumping, Trashing

Proper trash the dress still kinda scares me. Don’t get me wrong I love the results but I’d still be so scared of getting into a lake in my dress!

Newlywed Mindy has allayed my fears a little bit, you never know, maybe I would get into a lake in my dress!
We did it next to and under a road near my house and finished off with me getting in the lake down the street just as the sun was setting over the mountains. It was pretty much the most fun thing I have ever done and I wish I could trash my dress every day! (I actually could do it again because I washed it in the bathtub, picked the lake weeds out of the skirt, and it ended up being as good as new!)

The Handmade Wedding

There is something about an English wedding that you just don’t get anywhere else in the world…it’s just all so…well..English! Cupcakes, flower gardens, big hats and a prayer for sunshine are the norm.  After seeing this beautiful wedding I am so excited about the wedding myself and the hubby are off to on Friday (photographs to follow I’m sure)

Thanks to Rima for the share.

Sweet As Candy

This intimate candy coloured wedding deserves a little mention, if for nothing else then for that gorgeous cake at least. The couple had a very limited budget which proves you don’t need to spend a bomb to get a sweet and personal wedding.

Thanks to Stephanie for sharing these.
