I think you’re going to like this grungy photo shoot and video sent in by Mark Parker…just remember when it comes to the photographs that are going to help you remember your wedding, don’t be a fearful Bride – be a fearless Bride (OK so now I officially hate myself for actually writing that cheesiness, but you get what I mean right?!)
Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me. It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out. But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that. Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you. Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!
This beautiful, almost peaceful New York wedding was send to me by the photographer Amanda of Love Me Do Photography. The wedding took place in Central Park and the reception was held at a hip French Bistro in Midtown. What’s great about this wedding (quite apart from how stunning it is) is that the couple, Jen & Hooper pretty much DIY’ed the whole thing themselves. I think the only thing they didn’t make themselves was the cake and the dress!
The Bride, Jen is a fabulous blogger, painter and photographer herself, so she definitely started off of the right foot wedding planning wise! (Amanda even took some of Jen’s art as payment for photographing the wedding – how awesome is that!?)
Jen and Hooper designed the invitations/save the date (which you can see on Jen’s blog), the centerpieces and flowers (including the bouquets and those wicked masks), the guest book and the cute little Jen and Hooper paper dolls at each place setting.
Jen’s dress was a silk chiffon evening gown from Bergdorf, her bolero was by Kate Towers and her gloves were by Carolina Amato
Enjoy these..and I’m pretty sure I don’t even have to mention how much I adore Jen’s bird tattoos…<swoooon!>
Does anybody love balloons in engagements as much as I do? I don’t actually think it is possible!
I am hopefully going to be doing a new photo shoot soon and omg there will be balloons (the photographer doesn’t know this yet hehe!)
I have recently discovered this flickr group, her balloon happiness..join it and bring some balloony smiles into your life.
Right, brace yourselves guys…I have some particularly amazing videos to share with you. You know what, amazing doesn’t even cover it – I’m thinking more like, these are so fan-bloody-tastically wonderfully, scrumptiously awesome that words can not even describe.
This first one if by far my favourite. The mix of the amazing photography from Amina with Patrick’s ridiculously brilliant cinematography make for a mini-film that I could watch over and over. Still Motion really do give you the full experience! It really is a complete visual feast… Have I used enough adjectives so far? I think there is always room for more…
I adore this second video and this cute couple, watch it all the way through – the ending is so cute (and messy!) I came home from work today a little bit grumpy and I swear, these have cheered be up no end. Wooooooow Still Motion I am forever in your blogging debt.
