Will & Myriam’s ceremony took place at Pencarrow House in Cornwall and then it was all back to the parent’s house for food and drink! “There’s not much to tell” Will began “We did everything the way we did because we had known we wanted to be husband and wife for ages, so it was more a question of getting the day out of the way! We didn’t want to make a fuss about the day, or do anything cheesy, we just wanted it to be ‘a fun and casual get-together with romantic bits’ and we had an ultra-minimal budget”
Summer & Frank got married exactly a year after their first date. The wedding had an Autumn theme and was held at a local park. Their reception was at one of their favourite hang outs – Fatty’s in Astoria. “I started looking for parks in our area where we could also hold the reception.” Summer told me. “We’re both very casual and outdoorsy, so we didn’t want anything formal–we wanted the focus to be more on the happiness of the day. The cost for renting local parks is a shocking fraction of more formal venues, too, and you can bring in your own catering, which gives you more options for food. I’m a vegetarian, so that was important.”

I like to think of it as an extension of my birthday! Isn’t she is incredible? Be sure to go check out her blog post with the story of the shoot. What a lot of work. I totally think it was worth it though!

I love a shoot with a great story behind it…especially when it revolves around people I know! When bride-to-be Laura checked in on Rock n Roll Bride a few months ago she fell in love with the work of UK photographer, David McNeil. She promptly contacted him to arrange an engagement shoot in Brighton. Her fiance Nick and her turned up on the morning of the shoot, only to discover that unbeknownst to both of the boys, they already knew each other! David and Nick actually used to work together long before David tried his hand at wedding photography and Nick got engaged…but wait the tale gets stranger because when David sent me these images it turns out I used to work with Nick too! What a small world…
Nope this isn’t one of my photo shoots – but model Jennifer and I sure to have one (very pink) thing in common! The shoot took place in Richmond, VA at Belle Isle which is a park that has a large suspension bridge that takes you to another small island that has several abandoned buildings including an old power plant on it – perfect shooting ground!
“The power plant is really cool, lots of graffiti and crumbling architecture” photographer Jan told me. “Her dress was bought at a thrift store for $3, we added the black sash to give it more character. She was an awesome model, with great pink hair and lots of style I hope to photograph her wedding eventually. I love your blog by the way. It’s completely along the lines of what I’m interested in and I love to see other photographers and brides that are unique and have style not typical boring brides.”
Today is my birthday so I’m taking a rare (and I hope you’ll agree – well deserved) day off from blogging, emails, twitter… all that jazz (well I may pop by twitter – let’s not be rash with our decisions here.) I’ll be back and raring to go tomorrow – but until then, here’s a little sneaky peek of what you can expect on my return…shaaaweeeet huh?!
