I Love This!

So I saw this wedding on I Love Lolliblog the other day and was instantly smitten. Then when photographer Christine Chang submitted the wedding to me as well I thought ‘what the hell’ and have decided to break my self-imposed rule of not re-blogging. This wedding is too damn special and too damn rock n roll to pass up!

The gorgeous Bride Kristi, who owns her own jewellery company named Diamond Willow designed and DIYed the whole wedding – from the centrepieces to her stunning peacock bouquet, the boutonnieres and her own flower hairpiece. She wore a sample gown designed by Lian Carlo and her Mum altered the neckline and made the train detachable for dancing.

The Bridesmaids have got to be some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen, rocking their Betsey Johnson frocks, white platform shoes, babies breath bouquets and personalised ‘knuckleduster’ rings designed and made by Heist Jewelry.

Thanks to Christine for sending me these and to I Love Lolliblog for sharing them to begin with!

After giving myself an impromptu day away from my computer yesterday I have come back to a plethora of emails full to bursting with weddingy gorgeousness. I can not wait to get blogging it all!

I’d better start the day with the most important announcement however..the winners of the Todd Ritondaro New York Love film contest. I have been overwhelmed with votes  – over 2400 of you took the time to read the couple’s stories and vote for your favourite – yey! It got pretty close at times but I am very excited to let you all know that the winners are….

Kate & Dan!

Woooo! Well done guys – you will be meeting up with the lovely Todd sometime next month to film your love story! I can not wait to see the final result and of course give it the premier it deserves right here on the site.

Thanks to everybody that took the time to come and vote!

Cowboys & Rockstars

Chris & Todd had two reasons to celebrate on their wedding day as Chris was 7 1/2 months pregnant! Her gorgeous dress and bolero were custom made by Elizabeth Dye and complimented her baby bump beautifully. I hope I look this radiant if I ever have kids. The couple incorporated everything they love into the day, as photographer Heather Hawksford described it – ‘canoeing, horseshoe, croquet, Pete Krebs Trio, The Dickle Brothers, cowboys & rockstars chatting over homemade beer’
Sounds perfect huh?

Full On Vamp

My friend David McNeil took a trip to Brighton with TV Presenter Jules who needed some new shots for her portfolio. Poles apart from the usual boring head shots, David and Jules went from cute and sweet to full on vamp within a matter of shots which created some really amazing results. As soon as I saw these I know I’d have to share, these could be straight out of a Vogue fashion shoot no problem!

Wherever The Music Takes You

With a pair as passionate about music as these guys, coupled with the fact that they met at a park, what better place to have their engagement shoot than at a picnic and to have it featured on Rock n Roll Bride!?
I am well aware that every single couple I feature is adorable, but Emma & Paul?…there really is no other way to describe them!

Thanks to Ashlee Nicole for sending in this web exclusive photo session!
