A Swedish Rock n Roll Princess Wedding

My & Marcus’ Swedish wedding was planned to reflect their personalities and style. “I always wanted our wedding to be a bit different but not in an exaggerated way,” the bride told me. “I love the small things to be personal and not like everyone else’s and I think we really managed a good balance between traditional and personal elements.”

The wedding took place in a marquee in Hög, Southern Sweden but they actually had a bit of a venue crisis 3 weeks before the wedding. The bride explained, “The venue was actually planned to be held in a large converted warehouse that was made into a big nightclub. Even though our wedding was planned for the middle of the summer, I was terrified that it would be bad weather and because of that I wanted to be in a place that would not be ruined by having rain.”

“We got married after spending just 12 days with each other…”

Oh MAN am I excited to share Krystle & David’s wedding story with you today. The couple got married just twelve days after they properly met and they couldn’t be more in love if they tired. This is their story…

“We met online via our professional wedding photographer forum, DWF.”, the bride told me (they are both professional photographers) “We actually first met when both of us flew across the country to attend the DWF annual convention, in Nashville this past January.”

“We talked that first weekend about getting married and joked around about going to get married by Elvis back then and I told him I would have married him with a ring pop because I just wanted to be with him. We actually decided to just get married mutually, and when he came out to see me the couple days before we eloped to Vegas, he surprised me with a real proposal! We were playing Mario on my Super Nintendo because he swore he was better than me, yea that sucker failed miserably and I kicked his ass. He then pulled out a Star Wars tin lunchbox filled with my favorite Canadian chocolate bars, I love you mints, and dousche bag gum. At the bottom of all of that was a ring pop. He told me he loved me, wanted to be with me forever and then some, and then asked me to marry him. Nothing over the top, but I can’t think of any better way to be proposed to than Mario, chocolate, Star Wars, and wearing sweat pants.”

Ahhh! But it doesn’t stop their people, just you wait until you see their gorgeous wedding!

They were married in Graceland Wedding Chapel and had an informal dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe afterwards. As lovers of all things retro and “obnoxiously bright” Vegas was the perfect place for them. Both being wedding photographers they had seen their fair share of what they didn’t want over the years so the decision to do something completely different was quite an easy one.

Hitchfest 2010 – Bowie Bride Gets Wed – The Engagement Session

Confession: I have been looking forward to Britt & Mike’s wedding for like, a year. Britt runs the awesome blog Bowie Bride where she’s been sharing with us their “oh so pec-u-liar” journey to the alter in her own, totally kick ass, anti-wedding industry and super colourful, DIY-mad way.

I first ‘met’ Britt about a year ago when she entered a contest on my site. She actually won, and since then I’ve not only been slightly obsessed with her blog but I’ve been slightly obsessed with her. In a girl-crush kinda way! We actually probably talk everyday, how mad is that?! We have a mutual love of Maine Coons though so we always have something to talk about even if it is just exchanging photographs of our respective pets on Facebook.

Emma & Matt’s Incredible Fancy Dress Wedding

Emma & Matt had an incredible fancy dress wedding at home. The bride & groom live on a farm, so they decided their own home would be the perfect venue. The theme for the fancy dress was anything from 1920’s – 1980’s and they invited their guests to dress as their favourite decade from the last century. Even the music they selected fitted the theme, with the DJ’s  ‘The Beautiful and the Damned’ – who they saw playing at a festival – playing an eclectic mix of music from the 1920’s to the 1980’s throughout the evening.

“As a documentary film maker Emma used her creative skills to make her wedding truly individual, personal and above all a lot of fun,” Polly, their photographer, told me. “This is without a doubt one of the most fantastic and fun weddings I have ever photographed and I have never laughed so much at a wedding – some of these outfits were pure genius.”
