L.O.V.E

As I’m now back from our mini marriversary break, I figured I may as well be back with a posting-vengeance.  Gareth is in the garden attempting to mow the lawn with an inherited, half lethal, slightly sparking lawnmower (thanks Mum) so to calm my nerves I may as well mow my way through this digital stack stuff in my ‘to blog’ list…seriously, I do have a list and it’s a long one!

I get sent a lot of engagement sessions and I don’t tend to post all off them as firstly there are so damn many (!) and secondly they can all end up looking a bit ‘same same’.  However when Emma sent these my way at the back end of last week, I knew I would share them with you.  All I can think about when I look at these is how blatant it is that this couple are head over heels in love with each other!  That doesn’t always come across in some of the photographs I see…but with these there’s no doubt in my mind.  Oh Christ, look how soppy I’m getting in my old age! 
I must also send you in the direction of another engagement session by the photographer behind these images, Daley Hake, for one main reason..this yellow balloon!

Thanks so much Emma & Tim, and good luck with all your wedding planning…I will be expecting to see some amazing wedding photographs in September!

A Pink Rockabilly Romance

Hey Hey…I am back, did you miss meeeee?!  We had a fabulous (and very fancy) time in Brighton this weekend, our hotel was ridiculously posh and we got it all for free (including two 3 course dinners which totaled more than we would spend on food shopping in a month!)  I am surprised they even let us in with my pink mop and Gareth’s j-rock do…

Thought I’d come back with a bang and share this fantastic wedding I have been dying to get out there as soon as I found a few of the images on flickr…I was forced to wait however as the photographer, Phaedra had not yet finished editing them all.  I’m glad I did though because now they are even better than when I first saw them.  This rockabilly style just makes me swoon…and it’s all PINK!
What is also brilliant about this wedding is that almost everything was handmade by local (Californian) artists, Phaedra was kind enough to share some of these with me…
A few details about the wedding- the theme was 1940’s Rockabilly, and just about everything was handmade custom by local artists. The ladies’ attire was made by Debbie Carper (209-656-9334) from Denair, California. The tuxes and men’s shoes were by MX Tux in Merced (209-722-3388). The cakes were custom designed and made by Christy Lobao of Hilmar, California. (209-233-1991). The flowers were made by the Pitman High Agricultural Department (209-602-1146). I made playbill style wedding programs for them.. and my team photographed the wedding (
www.phaedraphotography.com) The hair and make-up was done by Amber Tucker (209-324-3239) I’ve seen Amber’s work a few times now and I’m switching hairdressers! The woman can pull off anything!

A Wonderland Wedding

Hello my gorgeous girls (and guys!) sorry I didn’t post at all last night but I am feeling rough like sandpaper…I think I’m coming down with something which is highly inconvenient as this weekend is our one year anniversary!How absolutely ridiculous! It has gone so quick!  So similarly, the posts will be slim to none over this weekend as we are off to Brighton to eat fish n chips, go on rollercoasters, walk down the pier and probably get horribly drunk (again!)  We are staying in a super swanky hotel called The Grand which we got for free as an apology from our first wedding venue that cancelled out wedding 3 months before the wedding day (see, things always turn out alright in the end!)

Just before I go, I simply must share this amazing ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed wedding send to me this morning by Adrienne (who blogs over here)  I am absolutely in love with this girl’s style and their super fun, super colourful wedding full of personaltouches and cute little details (seriously the cake made of flowers – amazing!) Enjoy these, and I will see you all when I get back…
Much Love!

Giddy With Excitement

Holy s***…these are aaaammmmaaazing!  The ceremony took place in….wait for it…the deep end of a swimming pool!  It’s certainly not like any grubby, algae stained, chlorine filled swimming pool I’ve ever been too  – these are quite frankly fantastic, and what an original idea…just wow!

Edit…I have just found Kyle & Casey’s engagements…I had to share them too. I love this couple! For more of these engagements, clicky here….

Edit II…I just received an email from Rod, the photographer – and this pool is in Kyle’s parents back garden! omg…
