I spend a lot of time online (like seriously hours a day) and so of course I come across many a fabulous wedding and non-wedding thing that I don’t want to dedicate a full spot to. So, inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, I have decided on a new little feature. Every Thursday I will introduce you to a few extra treats out there on the world wide web. I hope you enjoy it. Let’s begin…
♥ Problogger spoke about a topic very dear to my heart – the importance of outbound links when blogging.
♥ The Unbride, Justine Ungaro, has relaunched her fabulous blog. It’s had a makeover and is more awesome than ever. Plus to celebrate she is running a veil giveaway from Castle Bride Couture.
♥ Vivienne Westwood has released some brand new colours of the super popular Lady Dragon shoe. I need those red/fuchsia ones in my life asap!
♥ The delightfully dark La Carmina gave us a sneak peak of her newest book – Cute Yummy Time. I can not wait to get my hands on it!
♥ This is kind of last week’s news – but as this is a new feature and I had to squeeze it in. My friend Marina and her band Miss Fitz got through to bootcamp on the X-Factor. Check them out. I’m biased yes but they totally rock!
♥ Design*Sponge posted some super gorgeous downloadable wallpapers on their site. I am currently rocking the Deanne Cheuk (Light) design.
♥ I Love Lolliblog posted a candy, tully, frothy, gorgeous inspiration board – It’s My Party.
♥ And these lovely people gave Rock n Roll Bride a shout out this week…

If you have a link that you think I should include in my Thursday Treats then be sure to drop me an email and let me know about it.
I am on a blogging roll this morning hey? Can’t stop now though, I’ve got Keith & Rachel’s amazing engagements to show you. The couple (who I swear to God should be models) will actually be getting married at the exact location of this shoot. Keith is a tattoo artist and did the awesome sleeve on Rachel’s arm.
Evan & Angela’s wedding was at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC. They had an intimate event with just 20 or 30 guests within their own bridal penthouse suite with an antique/bird theme. They set up a typewriter to be used a vintage style guest book, birdcages around the room and old-time candy for goodie-bag favours. They are both photographers as well so there were antique cameras scattered about as well as lots of shots taken with Evan’s old Polaroid Land Camera. Angela’s veil was handmade by an artist in Portland, OR and her dress was designed by local Seattle designer Chrissy Wai-Ching. It’s a pretty damn amazing dress huh?
Krista & Uryah had a 1920s style wedding in Snohomish, WA. As a professional seamstress, Krista planned and DIY’d the majority of wedding herself. I have a whole lot of love for this set – her shoes, her back lace umbrella, the cigarette holders – classy and wonderful!
So I did some hunting around to find out the true story of the fabulous ‘Woodstock Wedding’ that I blogged a few days ago. Turns out it was a ‘fake’ wedding and was set up as an editorial photoshoot for French magazine Jalouse…and the Bride & Groom – wait for it – were actually Mark Ronson and his girlfriend Josephine de la Baume!
This is yet another shoot I have been dying to share for ages. Rock n Roll Bride fave, Trigger Happy Tara showed me a sneak peak of these a few weeks ago and me being as impatient as ever I have literally been chomping at the bit to get these up for you all!
