Jen & Gavin won Ambient Studios‘ ‘Engagement Story Your Way’ contest with their unique 60’s/Mad Men idea which was fueled by their love of the show, and the style of the era. Photographers Larissa & Trevor told me all about it:
You know I’m usually all about the rock chicks, but there is just something about a quirky, DIY, eco, British wedding that I just can’t resist…and that fact that the bride wore Vivienne’s (I have them in yellow)…well I’m sold! Photographer Mark told me the whole story:
Marie and Karl chose the personal, DIY approach to ensure their wedding reflected their eco-conscious principles, where possible, combined with their love of elegant, vintage styles, nature and music! The day was based in two venues in the Northern English Forest of Bowland on a snowy day in late December.
The invite package contained screen printed and hand stamped bunting on recycled card and a button badge! The couple also set up a website was to encourage electronic RSVPs.
Sometimes the non-bridal stuff I get sent it so freakin’ awesome that it would be crime against humanity (and in this case fashion) not to share it. Karolina Skorek is a painter and photographer from Poland who’s just opened a photography studio here in the UK. This amazing shoot was done with her friend and fashion designer Ewelina Sliwa. Aren’t her designs just wonderful? I love the grungy, decaying feel to this attic shots. Fabulousa!
I just wanted to share a few images from Jed & Sarah’s funky yet classic Brighton wedding. Brighton is a really eclectic town on the South coast of England.
Brighton is full of eccentric characters and this wedding was so fun and quirky, even the registrar had kooky shoes and piercings. The bride and groom were very cool – her mother in law made the dress and I think she looks fab, they got wed in the pavillion, then onto a double decker to the Grand Hotel for some food and drinks….It was all about their colourful personalities and the offbeat alternative nature of Brighton which I made sure to feature in as many of the shots as possible.

It’s my favourite time of the week again and I’m always ready for a little treat aren’t you? To stay with, I had to share yet another image by Kirsty Mitchell at the top of this post (she’s got the top spot for a second week running now) as this simply is my favourite image I’ve seen all week. She sent it over to me a few days ago and it’s well…just too damn wonderful for words isn’t it?! In fact all her photography is really – simply breathtaking…Thanks Kirsty!

I may well be stating the obvious here, but Amy & Jay’s wedding is freakin’ awesome. Hell to the yeah…I love to blog this stuff!
We were married on 01/02/10 in Brooklyn, NY. We really love our neighborhood and wanted to keep it local, allowing our guests to fully experience the day in Williamsburg Brooklyn. We had our ceremony and three course vegan meal at a place called Monkey Town. As a wedding gift, one of our best friends/dancer/aerialist/choreographer, Sarah Wollschlager, did an aerial performance to Etta James’ “At Last,” which contributed to the uniqueness and beauty of our ceremony. Our officiant, from the Brooklyn Society of Ethical Culture, Tasha Paley, also made the ceremony even more personal- she brought laughter to our guests and made several of us shed a tear while reading an excerpt from “The Little Prince.”
We then had the reception at Trophy Bar, which included an open bar, dancing, vegan cupcakes, and a photobooth. For the photobooth, two of our best friends created a caution tape backdrop and set up a wireless remote, allowing the guests to get ready and pose! As far as vegan cupcakes in NYC go, Babycakes is the absolute best…we were so relieved that all of the non-vegan guests really loved them! They also made us a 6″ cake, where we put our super cute monster cake toppers, created by Leslie Levins. It was absolutely an incredible day and it wouldn’t have been what it was without our amazing friends!
Amy had two dresses – the ceremony dress was found on Ebay and was a similar design to Maggie Sottero’s Rasharna dress, which she loved but when she saw the less-fussy Ebay version she was sold! Her reception dress was from Betsey Johnson’s Spring 2008 collection. She carried a felt bouquet by Jennifer Rae of Ribbons n Bows Boutique (who she discovered through Rock n Roll Bride!)
