The Vintage Bride

I wanted to share a few images of Caitlin on her wedding day as I think she looked every bit the simple vintage beauty.

We had an intimate wedding with the whole family bringing it together from the dress, the caterer and all the details in the house
for the reception. I chose the vintage look because it not only totally works with my own personal style, it is a classic look that will never grow old. I didn’t want to look back 20 years from now and say “What was I thinking?!” Even now if you look at pictures from the ’40’s and ’50’s, you can only say how beautiful and glamorous everyone and everything looked.

On a Quirky & Personal Afternoon

Brett & Louise had an quirky and personal afternoon ceremony which was held at the Mt Coo-tha Botanical Gardens in Brisbane, Australia.  Their untraditional ceremony featured two rituals, both a ring warming and a hand-fasting ceremony.  Photographer Rebecca told me all about this fun and family-oriented day:

During the ring warming ceremony the rings were past around the guests who were asked to give their blessings and to make a wish for Louise & Brett’s future together.  During the exchange of rings Louise went from tears to laughter which help to create fantastic emotive images of her.   After the exchanging of the rings the hand fasting was performed.  This ceremony involved Brett and Louise’s mothers winding and tying  a piece of ribbon around their hands binding them together in life.

Just Wenderful

Wendy‘s dirty and fun trash the dress session was sent me to me by her photographer Shannon the other day. The pair not only hiked up a mountain to get to their perfect location, but went a little nuts when they got there (I put it down to the thin mountain air personally!)

Freshly Oiled

Connie’s trashed her dress for a different reason to most – recently divorced, she wanted a fresh start and could think of no better way than doing this. Quite apart from the reasons behind it, I wanted to share these because I am loving the overly dirty, grimy look!

Music Festival Vibe

Jo & Matt’s relaxed summer wedding took place at South Farm in Cambridgeshire, UK. The couple tied the knot in the venue’s summer house whilst the stunning venue allowed guests to chill out outside, listen to the live music (including the groom’s band!) and then camp overnight. The whole day have a hippy chic, music festival, vibe to it. Jo wore a vintage dress and Christian Louboutin shoes and looked every bit the perfect Rock n Roll Bride.
