A Pop of Colour

I love Jeff & Manya’s wedding for so many reasons. The first has got to be Manya’s gorgeous ‘MacKenzie’ Modern Trousseau dress complete with swarovski crystal belt, Betsey Johnson shoes and hair piece by Lani Fisher (who works with Jill of Darling Bride who did her hair) and the second is those gorgeous flowers by Jen K Floral Designs. Seriously, aren’t those yellows just amaaazing. The wedding overall had a yellow and blue theme – and it really works! The colours of the bridesmaids dresses looks awesome next to the uber ‘pop’ of the citrus blooms…and don’t even get my started on Manya’s fuchsia pink lipstick. Epic!

Thursday Treats – 20th May 2010

As you read this I will be sat in a tattooists chair trying my hardest to act cool and not over-react to the pain. Oh yes people I am getting a half sleeve! I have been dreaming of getting one for the past few years (in fact pretty much since I started doing this and staring at gorgeous inked brides all day!) so I’m beyond excited (and nervous) that the day has finally arrived. It will take a few sessions to finish but rest assured that I will be sharing the experience of it all with you when it’s done and luckily for you (and me) I’ve already got a few photographers who’ve asked to take some photographs of me with it once it’s done. Bonus!

Anyway…on with this thing we call Thursday Treats. I’ll see you when I’m back from the tattooists (eeeek!)

Oodles of Cute – Orange Balloon Engagement Sesh

Kolby & Kennedy are all kinds of cute… and you know what? I still love balloons shoots. I’m sorry but I just can’t help it I actually don’t care if they’re not ‘cool’ anymore. I mean especially when the couple are this gorgeous! How can you not adore this? Her dress, his bow tie, those orange balloon, that light! – picture perfection.

Vintage Vision

Winchester-based photographer Angela Ward Brown sent these over the other day and I’m pretty sure you vintage lovers are going to adore them. The shoot took place at semi-derelict country estate near Winchester called Northington Grange, which is open to the public but it hardly ever used, except as for the odd movie and soap opera set!

The model, Velvet (yes, her real name!) looks stunning in these genuine vintage gowns. The first, a handmade, full-length, silk gown with short train dated from the1930 is particularly stunning no? The dresses were all found at Hampshire Wardrobe in Winchester and Angela styled the shoot herself. She made all the accessories (including the veil) to perfectly match her vision.

City Chic Fashionista Wedding

Lee & Rose got married in Liverpool in a super duper stylish way. Rose’s outfit is literally off-the-hook! Have you ever seen a bride look so damn funky? Plus (and you’re going to love this) it is all from the British high street! Be sure to check out the full list of where each item was found after the photographic goodness. I am just mad about those tights…

“There was no real theme as such, but the sort of couple we are means that we wanted something relaxed, informal and fun” Lee , the groom, told me “We wanted a simple wedding, we wanted to wear the outfits we wanted, we wanted to pay for everything ourselves, and more importantly, we wanted our friends and family to come and have a good time, not feel like they had to behave in a manner they normally wouldn’t, i.e. no strict seating arrangements, not worrying about which knife to use to cut the bread roll, etc. We’re not show-offs, and we’re not millionaires, and we have our own sense of style, so we couldn’t see the point in all this so-called ‘traditional’ excess that means the marriage starts off with £30,000 worth of debt! It just wouldn’t be us.”

Maria Lluïsa Rabell – Magical Dress Inspiration

This is not the usual post I put up but sometimes there are exceptions to be made. I received an email from reader Claire the other day who told me “I nearly died when I saw these dresses”. Hell, I can see why. Serious swoon-fest over here. I want them all!

The Barcelona-based designer Maria Lluïsa Rabell blends contemporary subtle lines and elegance with amazing technical flair and ability. Unique, out-there and original. Have you ever seen anything like these? They have such a magical, romantic feminine feel don’t they?
