Margaret & Edi’s INCREDIBLE “Blows-Everything-Else-Out-of-the-Water” Gothic Alice in Wonderland Wedding

Yeah…so…um…speechless.

… … … …

Seriously people! Get a load of this sheeeeeit. OK, OK let me get myself together for a second…

Margaret sent me a sneak peek to her incredible wedding to Edi back in October and I had to wait until this week to see the rest of them. Do you know how hard that has been for me?! I actually teased the above photo on Twitter the other day and someone replied asking if it was a photograph of heaven…that’s a pretty accurate assumption I think!

The couple were legally married at Edi’s parent’s house and the reception took place in the fairytale setting of The Bali Room in the Kempinski Hotel, Jakarta and Margaret told me all about it.

“Our theme was Alice in Wonderland. I picked Alice for my theme, because I’ve loved it since I was a little kid and because my Mom’s name is Alice. The main colour was dark purple because purple represents magical and darkness in the same time. its so glamorous! Our family members wore purple shade outfits.”

Candice & Dave’s Musical Journey

I don’t feature a whole load of engagement shoots, preferring to share all the awesome Rock n Roll weddings I get sent. But sometimes, just sometimes, an e-session comes my way that’s so rad I just have to share it!

“In this engagement shoot I introduce you to my friends Candice & Dave, and take you on a little journey through their life,” explains photographer Jacki Bruniquel. “Dave & Cands both play amazing music and are a part of the legendary band Hairlip which is a crazy eighties revival band. Dave also known as Dave McMillan, is well known as a wonderful guitarist, singer and songwriter is his own right. We themed their engagement shoot ‘A Saturday in the life of Candice & Dave’.”

” Starting at their flat where they often hang out and play music, then onto a coffee shop (how cute is this coffee shop?) and finally a local theatre where they often play. They wanted their engagement shoot to be s true representation of them as a couple as opposed to them as musicians so we really mixed it up a bit and had fun.”

Tara & Travis’ Denim & Diamonds Wedding at The Burning Man Festival

Tara & Travis met at The Burning Man festival in 2007, so where better than to be wed than the very festival that brought them together? The ceremony, which they wrote themselves, took place under the Bliss dance statue in the middle festival and was performed by a close friend of the couple.

The theme for the wedding was Denim and Diamonds/Cowboy Chic. The couple did everything themselves and due to the festival location, had very laid back attitude to the ‘formalities’ of a wedding, “We had a good old fashioned BBQ for everyone – no one was turned away” they explained. Their table design and all the florals were provided by the fabulous Asiel Design.

Little Red Hiding Hood Gets Married

With the movie coming out soon, photographer Tabitha McCausland was inspired to shoot a Red Riding Hood themed bridal shoot. Not only did she get an actual wolf in on the action (!) but Red is only wearing one of the new gowns from the latest Vera Wang collection. I die. Seriously…this dress? I need!

Be sure to check out the rad behind the scenes video too!

There are plenty more awesome images after the ‘jump’…

Heather & David’s Whimsical & Wonderful New Orleans Wedding

There was one thing that struck me in particular when I laid eyes on Heather & David’s New Orleans wedding…Heather’s incredible dress! She bought it from Natural Bridals on etsy and had it custom altered to make it perfect for her. She wore it with striped tights (rad!) and incredible orange boots. In fact their own wedding was a whimsical and wonderful mishmash of Rock n Roll fabulousness!

Heather explained, “We wanted to throw a wedding that was going to stand out from the other weddings that people would be attending throughout the year. Our goal was to get a reaction out of our guests. Cool! Um, interesting. Wow, fun! Very whimsical. Those were the target reactions… anything, but, nice (blah). We did almost everything a little strangely which caused a LOT of extra planning and negotiating with vendors. Most vendors in the city of New Orleans (and other cities I am sure) are bogged down with traditions and preset packages. We found that the vendors that were excited about a challenge were the ones for us.”
