Yes, you read that right! If you’re an animal lover you could be in for the chance of having your wedding photographed absolutely FREE. I know this sounds too good to be true but I promise it’s not!

Wedding photographer Gemma of Taylor Wolf Photography loves animals, and animal themed weddings, so much that she is running this amazing competition for one lucky Rock n Roll couple to win their wedding photography with her.

“There’s a reason why I called my business what I did, because I’m crazy about animals!”, Gemma told me. “I incorporated the name Wolf because they are monogamous animals, and they value their family and social connections enormously but also their individuality. Much like me and the lovely couples I get to work with!”

Shabby Chic Wedding Inspired by their Grandparents

Jennifer Langridge - Wedding Photography

Nicola and Dan wanted their day to feel just like the weddings of their grandparents. They were inspired by pretty pastel colours, shabby chic details and street parties!

“I always wanted our wedding to be fun and reflect both of our personalities, and I think we achieved that”, said Nicola. “A lot of our guests commented on how much the whole day summed us up. We took our inspiration from an old photo I had of my Nan and Grandad’s wedding day from 1956. I wanted that old fashioned and East End feel. I would describe our wedding theme as a Jubilee street party and spring pastel chic! We had photos in frames on the head table of our grandparents who couldn’t be there with us.”

The bride wrote a 1950s inspired ballerina length dress from LouLou Bridal and after the ceremony she changed into Converse platforms which she embellished herself! “I customised my Converse with my initials N and W (my new surname is Warwick) and stuck on some pearls and a little bride and groom”, she explained. “Other DIY included all the pom poms which my mum and sister made and hung from the beams. We also made our favours which were CDs of our favourite music and little sweet boxes of sugared almonds and flying saucers. I sourced all of the china tea cups and saucers, teapots and jugs from various charity shops.”

It was only a matter of time until someone created a photo shoot inspired by Solange’s wedding to Alan Ferguson. As soon as I saw that hair, that jumpsuit and those adorable images of her on a bicycle, I knew it had to happen!

Put together by wedding photographer John Bello, the shoot took place in Vancouver. “We were obviously inspired by Solange Knowles’ wedding”, he told me. “We wanted to shoot something that would appeal to the more unconventional bride. From a plexi pillar dessert table to baby’s breath and keeping the colour scheme to all white and cream. We wanted to capture a very fresh, modern but romantic wedding.”

Sally and Jacques were legally married in September 2014, however they wanted to have a casual beach wedding so had a non-legal blessing with their family and friends there in January of this year. “We did not want to have a long boring ceremony”, said the bride. “We’ve both been so so many weddings with long boring sermons and we didn’t want that for our own.”

The day was held at The Umtamvuna River Lodge, a unique wedding venue and holiday destination set in a tropical paradise on the banks of the Umtamvuna River. “We kept it sweet and simple. The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin played and we both entered by horse. Jacques came over to me and helped me off mine and we walked down the aisle together. We exchanged rings, gave a hug and kissed. Said we loved each other and bam! It was done. That’s how we liked it.”

Glamorous & Bohemian Wedding Inspired by Vogue

VogueWedding_VanillaPhotography-586

There are some weddings I see where I wonder if it’s actually photo shoot with models. Tyrone, Camilla and their whole wedding party are so goddamn stunning, they almost don’t seem real!

But I assure you, this is a real wedding. It took place in South Africa on March 28th. “I’m not a traditional kind of girl, so I knew our wedding wouldn’t be very typical”, began Camilla. “I think if I had to choose the things that made our wedding slightly more unique were definitely our photos; I loved the idea of having a wedding album that looked more like a fashion editorial and I spent the day yelling ‘Vogue!’ at the groomsmen to get their Blue-Steel on!”

As if you’re not already feeling envious enough, Camilla actually designed her own wedding dress as well as the dresses her bridesmaids wore (is there no end to her talents?!) and had them made by a local dressmaker. They also planned and executed the entire wedding themselves, without the help of a wedding planner. “Champagne and nude have always been my colours, so I knew I wanted a different kind of dress”, she continued. “The fabric can from Bridal & Fabric World and was exactly what I had envisioned. I was also so keen to get my bridesmaids in leather jackets. I had a vision and it worked out so well! I think also having my brother-in-law with all of us girls put the cherry on top; he was our ultimate accessory.”
