Simply Perfect

Tommy & Meredith are so damn cute n cool that it hurts! I am dying over their simple but perfect engagement session and their matching red and black checks are way-too-adorable. Both artists, it was obvious that they’d have to do something super creative for their engagement session. It just so fun and natural!

Be sure to check out the fabulous ‘behind-the-scenes’ video after the ‘jump’

Luella’s Boudoir Recap – Vintage Wedding Event

Last night I was invited to attend the Luella’s Boudoir event at the ridiculously gorgeous venue ofOne Marylebone in London which I’d been looking forward to for weeks. It was such a fabulous event with some of the best vintage-inspired photographers and wedding vendors on show for all those lucky brides-to-be. I had some serious dress/shoe/jewellery envy for everyone who was actually allowed to buy the stuff on offer. Can I be a bride again? Pweeease!

Magpie Vintage and their gorgeous stand

I’d just like to say a huge thank you to Rachel Attwell who organised such a classy, elegant and kick ass  event and to Cosmopolitan Bride and You & Your Wedding Magazine for sponsoring the show. Some of my favourite vendors who you simply must check out were there. I have never met a nicer group of people! Magpie Vintage had one of the busiest and sparkiest stands there and Emmy Shoes were always rammed with brides checking out their gorgeous heels. Luella’s Boudoir (their shop is in Wimbledon) were of course there to showcase some of their new and gorgeous dress and accessory designs, and the fashion show was certainly a hit with all the brides-to-be. I kept glancing at all the excitable girls around me as the models sauntered down the catwalk, whispering to their friends “ooh I want that one!” All the dresses, bridesmaids dresses and accessories at the show were all designed as exclusive collections for Luella’s Boudoir and are  available for purchase directly from Luella’s Boudoir.

Holga, Music & Diy A-Plenty

Oh how I love a holga-photographed wedding! I can’t help but applaud a couple who take the risk with such a camera…I tried my hand at holga photography a while back and promptly gave up!

Katie & Kevin had a perfectly personal diy wedding. Katie loves crafting and so made everything, and I mean everything, herself. One of my favourite bits had to be the hand-dyed coffee filters used as hanging paper ‘flowers’. She also made the felt bouquet and the groomsmen’s custom cuff links herself too!

A Graphic designer by day, she did all the graphics on her invitations, save the dates, bridesmaid guide and rehearsal dinner invitations herself. They also included a CD gift with all her escort cards for guests to find their tables. It was a mix of love songs that her and Kevin had DJRJ play at the wedding. She handmade the table settings including tin can candle holders and framed menus.

High Rocks

When I featured Nadia & Damien’s London engagement session back in January I just knew their wedding would be a beaut’ and these images sent over by the lovely Eliza Claire certainly haven’t disappointed.

The pair got married at The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which proved a pictureqesue venue with dramatic ‘high rocks’ outside. These acted as the perfect backdrop for some stunning portraits. Nadia looked every bit the glamorous bride in her Stephanie Allin dress which not only has a belt and lace over-lay but had pockets. Yes! stylish and quirky!
