Save The Date? Nah…Save The Dress!

OK so you are going to love this. 

We didn’t send out Save the Date’s when we got hitched…it was just another unnecessary job to us, but hell, if we’d known this amazing Save the Date idea was a possibility the outcome might have been slightly different! Wouldn’t this also be a fabulous idea for your invitations or thank you’s? Not only is sending everyone videos instead of a generic card a lot more fun, inventive and..well..rock n roll, but this particular Save the Date laughs in the face of the usual ‘oooh look at us so in love, look at us holding hands’ blegh – it’s all about the Bride to be and her dress! Not to mention the fact that the shoot makes her look like an actual rock star…I just LOVE it!

Sharrone, you guys rocked this! Thanks so much for the share

Hot Shot!

Bored of engagement shoots or just not a fan..? Well why not have a Hot Shot!? The concept by Fiore Films blows the boring engagement shoot out of the water (not that I’d ever share any boring engagement shoots here!)

Sivanne & Omer flew in for their engagement session which they will be viewing on a big screen behind their first dance on there wedding day.
That’s the adorable idea Sivanne came up with!
In the clip they will be viewing, we strategically placed  Omer twirling Sivanne under his arm… he will be twirling her simultaneously on the actual dance floor.
Ehhh-Hem…I’ll take the credit for that adorable idea!
Here are just some of our favorite moments from Sivanne & Omer’s “Hot Shot” Enjoy!

ps I will be posting  couple’s amazing and original save the date idea later today…it’s defiantly an idea worth stealing!

One Of A Kind

I love unique wedding dresses don’t you? When I was choosing my own dress my decision was confirmed for me when the shop assistant said ‘well that one is not very popular’… SOLD!

Brazilian Bride Juliana seems to have the same opinion as me – her dress is so original and so fabulously glamorous! The dress was actually handmade by designer Isabela Capeto (her sister! She also made the cute Bridesmaid dress) and so defiantly is a one of a kind creation. I love it.

Thanks so much for sharing Ju!

Beg n Blog

Woohoo for bonus blogging time (I must put a positive spin on my misfortune/stupidity – see my recent twitter updates if you don’t know what I’m talking about!)

I may be annoyed at myself but at least I get to share all this glorious stuff with you.  As soon as I saw these on Bertie’s blog I knew I had to feature them too, so I emailed Trish begging and pleading to let me share too and she said yes. Hurrah indeed! This dress is absolutely glorious, all the layers and texture are so so amazing – and only $50!? WOW

The weather as been absolutely crazy of late with three seasons in a day, and by the time I was supposed to head out for an afternoon shoot, it was bucketing down…however, we got really lucky. The look and feel for this shoot was planned entirely by Jimmy, I’m guessing with some inspiration from his wife Eve and the gorgeous vintage dress which she scored from Vinnies for $50 (yes, whoa). It was such a perfect dress to photograph with all the textures, volume, and layers. Anyway, this shoot had been planned at an outdoor location but hair and makeup was being done at the make up lady’s house which happened to be the most beautiful, rustic brick and stone terrace with an romantic interior and diffused windows and we were sold. It too, was just perfect for this style of shoot, and so much more appealing than battling the rain.

Thank you thank you Trish, these have brightened my otherwise gloomy day!

Cute n Adorable Rural Wedding

Check out this cute n adorable rural wedding sent in by the guys at Mattson Pictures. The couple rented an entire rural campground so their wedding party and guests could party late then crash in the dozen-or-so little cabins around the grounds.  Jenille reused her mother’s old veil into a her own headpiece, and guests enjoyed lasagne made by the groom himself.
I adore all the cute yellow details, especially Jenille’s cute cardigan – and the doggie…aww the doggie!

Thanks again Karen & Doug, loving your work
