Homespun & Locally Sourced

I’ve discovered one of my new favourite photographers! So much in fact that I emailed him to ask for not one, not two, but THREE of his weddings to feature…so hold onto your hats because over the next few days you’re gonna see some serious awesome.

First up is Tony & Katie’s laid back, funky backyard wedding. Although the pair live in New York they opted to hold their wedding in Kentucky where all their family are based. They knew they didn’t want a traditional church wedding and luckily for them Katie’s grandparents allowed their home to play host to the celebrations.

Steampunks!

A little bit fashiony, a little bit boudoir – this Steampunk themed photo shoot sent me weak at the knees! Inspired by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, New Orleans and Dita Von Teese, photographer Kamila couldn’t wait to put together a shoot like this.

Parisian Super Glam

Methinks you’ll like these lovely Parisian, Moulin Rouge and super glam inspired wedding ideas from The Good Life Special Events.

“When styling this photo shoot, we wanted to create a romantic vintage atmosphere with a twist. Something vibrant, elegant, and out-of-the-box. Having been to the Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris, we tied in details and rich colors reminiscent of our visit. The rich reds, deep purple irises, and black accents were intended on creating perhaps a non-traditional wedding palette. Tucking black feathers into deep, velvety red roses and contrasting purple irises, our floral pieces emitted a tone of a classic wedding romance while being a bit off-beat. Sheet music was rolled into scrolls and synced with crystal drops for a little touch of whimsy. Gorgeous hand-painted place cards accented our ruby French brocade linen and black satin napkins gave a punch of interest. All of these elements came together seamlessly to create a wedding celebration that is timeless, a bit sexy, and just radiating romance.”

Creativity Running Wild

I have to be honest, I’ve been gagging to share Aubrey & Marshall’s wedding ever since photographer’s Stacie & Geoffrey (you may remember them from their own – way too damn cool wedding) sent me a sneak peek…not only because of how rad this wedding actually is, but because I have secretly been harboring a photographic crush on Lang Photographers (I’m probably their biggest Twitter stalker!)

Aubrey & Marshall diy-ed their whole wedding with very little budget – they just let their creativity run wild! Everything from the origami to the curtain, from the invitation to the pinwheels was constructed and created by the pair and I am dying over here! Oh tell me your love it as much as I do…

British Boudoir

This fabulous Boudoir/Pin up style shoot was set up by British photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox.
“My Make up artist is fabulous at creating that seductive, lashtastic pin up look” She told me “She also styled the models hair and I loved how the retro bouncy curls turned out. Accessories are all mine and are mostly props from the studio. The STUNNING blue Manolo Blahnik shoes are actually my ‘something blue’ from my own wedding day. All in all it was a really fun day full of bucks fizz, pearls, blue shoes and vogue magazine!! A perfect way to spend a Sunday in my opinion. “
