An Urban Winter Wedding

Beth and Ian had a London winter wedding. Despite being massively pregnant at the time, I think Beth looks like a celebrity from the 60’s…added to by the fact that she and wore her hair in a beehive and sported a cute short wedding dress, with a jacket made of big white sequins and some gorgeous shoes from LK Bennett (I actually knew that myself as I have lusted over them many a time – plus they are called the Akira shoe – for those of you that don’t know, that’s my kitty’s name too!)
 
After a civil ceremony all the guests piled on a traditional London routemaster bus to the London Eye for a ride in 2 private pods. Then it was back on the bus for a scenic tour of the capital before finishing up at The Ritz.

This really was a family affair with the incredible stationary being designed by Beth’s creative father – a beautiful etching incorporating all the parts of their wedding date their names and rings – and her stunning vintage style necklace? Well that was made by her Mum!

Thanks so much to Polly Alexandre for working so hard on this feature!

Rock n Roll Railroad

Diane Sage of Sage Studios Photography sent me this great photo shoot, and explained what being ‘rock n roll’ means to her. A pretty perfect description I’d say!

When I think of a “rock and roll” wedding or photo shoot, I think of how the people in the photographs are.  They look good, they rock it behind the camera and overall the feel of the images stand out. 

She also went on to discribe her ideas behind this stand out session…

This particular shoot was done to just spend the day having fun with a past bride. Liz and her husband Caleb got married in September 2008 but I asked her to come back and throw her gown back on so we could get these vintage feeling photographs.  Liz wore her fabulous dress and we added the funky neck pieces as well as some vintage luggage and brought her up to the tracks for some fun photographs. I didn’t go with the traditional bouquet, instead opting for these vintage feeling neck pieces that I think are really quite beautiful.  Liz wore her hair down with no veil to add to the casual feel of the shoot.

On another note, I am also a huge fan of Liz’s dress, I’m pretty sure it’s by Maggie Sottero and that I tried it on when I was looking for my own wedding dress.

Thanks Diane – I can’t wait for you to send me more!

That Bride/That Wife/That Photographer Extraordinaire

Jenna Cole is one of my best online friends. I met her what feels like a lifetime ago when we were both planning our weddings, through her blog That Bride.  Once she got married she became That Wife and now is even a photographer herself!  I have been dying for share some of her work with you for a while but have definitely been waiting for the best rock n roll style photo shoot…and I think I’ve got it don’t you?
Aviators, a cigar, birdcage veil, DIY wheat bouquet, tattoo…you name it this shoot has got it (even a tarantula for crying out loud – click here for that, I refuse to put a taruntulas on here! <shudder>)

Run Away With Me

Recently I seem to be sharing more and more photographs from each wedding/photo shoot I’m sent, but you know what? sometimes it’s really too difficult to cut it down, just like this post I’m afraid…

This couple absolutely rocked this session…I could imagine these two as a couple who’ve run away to elope and be in love amongst nature…but maybe that’s just me! The use of the vintage cameras and books in the last few shots is spot on, don’t props rock?!

Thanks Marianne!

Fake And Fashioned

When Fox & Freddy (seriously, how rock n roll can you get!?) got married they felt their photographs really didn’t represent who they really were. So 6 years down the line their friend and photographer Joy Wilson offered to do a super cool fake wedding shoot for them so they could have all the funk they deserved! Joy even went so far as to head off to a fabric store and fashion Fox’s ridiculously gorgeous dress using a plethora of stunningly coloured tulle’s and a lot of safety pins – she also made the one of a kind bouquet…multi talented you might say!

These are spectacular…and oh my God I want that dress!

Vintage Cameo

Jessie’s vintage style bridals were absolute classics and it would appear the wedding was just as gorgeous! I adore all the vintage attention to details, especially all the cameos…just beautiful!

Thanks so much Katherine!
