Urban Grunge & Diy to Die for

Shaun & Jacinta must be every wedding photographer’s dream clients! With Jacinta being a fashion designer and Shaun an illustrator, their wedding was always going to be too damn cool for words. Jacinta designed and made her own dress over 3-4 weeks (I know, I can’t believe it either!) which incorporated a print designed by Shaun (!) The pair worked together to decide on few ideas of what to have in the design to make it perfect for them and to represent both their families. They wanted it to include a Maltese cross to represent Jacinta’s heritage and one of Shaun’s mother’s favourite flowers, Chrysanthemums.

Antique Market Dreams

I have much love for Chicago photographer Jeremy Lawson  and it’s always a pleasure to feature his Rock n Roll weddings – especially when they are as awesome as the one of Mary & Alton.

The wedding took place at the uber cool Salvage One, which, with it’s awesome signage and rustic, almost derelict, antique market interior  provided the perfect backdrop to the event. Mary’s vintage look was provided by local Chicago design  Jess Audey who custom made her beautiful dress and Antje Kastner at Tigerlilie who did her retro/rockabilly style hair and make up.

The Julia Boggio Studios Grand Opening

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to the fancy pants grand opening of the Julia Boggio Studios in Wimbledon, London. Not only was it the very studio that Julia and I did my vintage boudoir shoot but I was able to meet a load of new people from the UK wedding industry as well as catch up with some old friends.

I headed up to London with the lovely Lisa of Magpie Vintage. Before the party we paid a visit to our friends at Luella’s Boudoir in Wimbledon who kitted us out with sparkles and shoes (Lisa nabbed some gorgeous Emmy shoes and I borrowed a beeeautiful Magpie Vintage headband – and yes I wanted to keep it!)  We then all piled back in Lisa’s car and made our way to Merton Abbey Mills where Julia’s studio is located.

The studio was filled with people all talking excitedly about their plans and ideas for the coming wedding season, and as we sipped Bellini’s and ate canapes off a tray with my face on (yeah, Julia nice idea ha!) I couldn’t help but wish the party just went on that little bit longer.  Here are a few images and a super cool video of the event (can you spot my pink head and ‘rock n roll’ necklace?) Enjoy! And UK brides, remember – I now have a million and one contacts for like, everything you might want for your Rock n Roll wedding! Hit me up with an email if you need any recommendations.

Thursday Treats – 6th May 2010

Credit: Choccywoccydoodah (I don’t usual blog things like this but I saw this cake in a magazine the other day and I hunted it out as I had to share it with you. Please can I have it as an ornament in my house?! Paaawwweeeeze? I wish we’d had it for our wedding too as our first dance was actually ‘All you need is Love’ PLUS I have it tattooed on the inside of my wrist! perfect or what?)

It’s a big day today. Not only is it the election (and I still don’t know who I’m going to vote for!) but I’m off to London-town for some meetings to discuss and plan some exiting new Rock n Roll developments – watch this space! Before all that though I’ve got just enough time to round up all this interweb loveliness for you…
