Carl & Emilia’s Modern Art, Hipster Wedding

Carl & Emilia’s hipster wedding was held at The Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm, Sweden, which they chose for it’s breathtaking view and because it is one of their most favourite places in the city. “We planned to have the ceremony outdoors in an adjacent garden,” explained the couple. “Instead of sunshine however (which really is not asking to much even in Sweden that time of year) we got rain. Then we got even more rain and after that thunderstorms. Thus, we had to make some last minute changes i.e. move the ceremony indoors, but it all worked out perfectly thanks to our wonderful family and friends who gladly moved around all furniture. In the end the ceremony turned out even better than originally planned!”

The bride’s dress was made in Thailand by a designer called Senada. They saw it in a shop window when on holiday in Bangkok and bought it then and there! While on holiday Emila also found her perfect dancing shoes, Lanvin Ballerinas flats, “They are sill the prettiest pair of shoes in my closet!” she laughed. Her actual wedding shoes were from Swedish designer Carin Rodebjer.

Roxy Rose’s Flapper Girl Boudoir

I thought I’d start this Wednesday morn with a little bit of sauce…something a little bit sexy to wake you up proper!

I don’t feature a lot of boudoir shoots on the blog as it takes a really unique idea to get my heart racing, however when I saw Burlesque performer Roxy Rose’s flapper girl inspired shoot, shot by Italian photographer Cinzia Bruschini, I couldn’t help but have a little nosey.

Enjoy!

Mo & Chris’ 1940’s Styled, State Park Wedding

Mo & Chris wedding inspiration came from the 1940’s and the fact that Chris is an old Ska kid. The bride explained, “For our clothes we decided we wanted a vintage feel. Chris wanted to stay away from tuxedos and suits and being an old ska kid at heart he wanted to have a vintage swingers kind of style. He gave the groomsmen their flat caps as a gift, they all picked their own colors, and he wore a black fedora with a feather in it. He told them to get grey shirts and black pants. The suspenders were my favorite part.”

Mo wore a tea length dress with amazing purple shoes which actually set the colour scheme for the entire day! “My dress was actually from David’s Bridal and so were the bridesmaid dresses. I was really set on a tea length dress. I have this affinity for the corporate wedding money machine but didn’t want to buy my dress online. It all came down to convenience. My friends were all different body types and some live in other parts of the country so I wanted to make sure they could all pick styles that made them feel dead sexy. We got a discount on the bridesmaid dresses because I bought my dress there. My veil and feather hairpiece were also from David’s Bridal. The sales lady put them in my hair when I tried on my dress and it made my Mom cry so we got them. That was a smart sales lady.”
