Connie’s trashed her dress for a different reason to most – recently divorced, she wanted a fresh start and could think of no better way than doing this. Quite apart from the reasons behind it, I wanted to share these because I am loving the overly dirty, grimy look!
Jo & Matt’s relaxed summer wedding took place at South Farm in Cambridgeshire, UK. The couple tied the knot in the venue’s summer house whilst the stunning venue allowed guests to chill out outside, listen to the live music (including the groom’s band!) and then camp overnight. The whole day have a hippy chic, music festival, vibe to it. Jo wore a vintage dress and Christian Louboutin shoes and looked every bit the perfect Rock n Roll Bride.
An old elevator and a creepy, deserted boiler room made for the setting du jour for Patrica’s Trash the Dress shoot. The venue was actually the basement of the hair salon she works in (Celebrity Hair in Edmonton) Photographer Elizabeth explains:
The elevator in the building is just awesome with old scuffed hardwood floors, wood grate and brick walls surrounding. Patricia worked a pretty traditional looking dress, but the photos are far from traditional! We had some fun with a big chunk of tulle that looks awesome in the photos! We ended he session in the very scary pitch black boiler room. The only light in there was the flashlight that I was using to light the session. It was so quiet and creepy down there and then every so often the boiler would roar to life! Was scary, but totally worth it because look at how awesome the photos are! Just a reminder that you don’t need a pretty building and trees and flowers to take awesome wedding photos!
Tanya & Spike went over to New York from Sydney, Australia to elope in style! I love their simple wedding and killer attitude (not to mention that orange dress!) Photographer Sarah was privileged to be the only witness at the ceremony and then to follow the pair around the city to document their first hours as a married couple.

Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I’ve had a rough few days of late. I’ve been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh… so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week’s Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans 😛
♥ First off – erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren’t they?
