Drum Roll Please!

I am so excited to announce the winners for our amazing free wedding photography contest.  We had so many amazing entries that it was actually nearly impossible to choose just one winner but we finally came to a decision and chose Vana & Damien!  They have won an engagement shoot and all their wedding photography on the day!  We loved this couple’s enthusiasm and over-excitement about all things wedding and had some amazing and totally unique ideas about what they want their wedding to be…and isn’t that what a Rock n Roll Wedding is all about?!

Vana & Damien are a amazingly cool couple from Newquay.  They are having a “tattoos, gingham and rock n roll” affair right by the beach in November.  They are also getting matching tattoos the very next day in their get up and we can’t wait to photograph that as well..it sounds amazing right?!  Vana’s dress also sounds fan-bloody-tastic but I don’t want to reveal anything in case Damien is being kept in the dark!

Woooohoooo well done guys!

On another note – I had a few entries from couples in America, and I was so sorry that we couldn’t fly out to do your weddings too!  However, good news for you all…Edyta Szyszlo emailed me this morning to tell me she is launching a free wedding photography contest for US couples…so get on over there and enter!

We Did!

Lilia send me these sweet images of a recent ‘we did’ photo shoot she shot. Aren’t this couple just the cutest? I love the Bride’s super simple yet super stylish dress. I would highly recommend a post wedding shoot – if for nothing else than that you get to wear your dress again! (I have done 3 photo shoots since our wedding…but that’s just me and I’m a huge poser hehe!)

Be Inspired II

I am super excited today as not only have I got a plethora of amazing stuff to share with you in the next few days but myself and David have decided the winners of the free wedding photography contest! I will be announcing the winners on here as soon as I have told them!

I really loved featuring Emily’s first inspiration board on Monday and it seemed you guys did too..so hold on to your hats, here comes round two..

 

Hello again!  Today’s board was inspired by the tattooed bride in the top left corner – I love the juxtaposition between her tattoo and her pearls, and tried to strike the same balance in my board.  This wedding is elegant and restrained, vintage and at the same time sort of modern, I think.  Try a fabulously feathered headband for the bride, a dark suit and skinny tie for the groom, unexpectedly mod calligraphy on envelopes, and spiky echinacea in square mirrored boxes as centerpieces.  A classic car borrowed from a friend or auto club is a stylish – and inexpensive! – getaway.
