Intimate.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Rock n Roll Bride favourite Tinywater, but Shay & Jenelle’s sweet and intimate little wedding has changed all that. What a perfect girlie afternoon it must have been.

Under the Spotlight – I Do Cake Toppers

Cutom5

Have you been looking for that perfect cake topper? One that’s funky, cool, original and suits you down to a tee? Well my dears I have the answer! I’m sure you’ve all heard of custom cake toppers before, but I think the ones by I Do Cake Toppers are by far the best I’ve seen.

You simply send a photograph with your order and Christina will make a custom cake topper which is a perfect reflection of you. Your ‘mini-yous’ are the perfect touch for your special day depicting your likeness, outfits, hairstyle, pets, hobbies and everything in between. They stand approximately 8 inches high which makes them the perfect size for a keepsake after the last of the cake is gone.
Go check out the gallery of past examples and you won’t be short of inspiration.

Latex, Tattoos, Piercings & Fancy Dress Make a FABULOUS UK Wedding!

I’ve got a funny feeling you’re going to go just as crazy about these as I did. Words can not even describe really can they? Danny & Louise’s amazing alternative, British (oh yes this couple is English woooo) wedding was all about the style.

Louise’s stunning latex dress was made by Jane Doe Latex. This part certainly didn’t care about what was ‘expected’ of their wedding, not only are the pair clearly ones to play by the rules (Louise is a piercer and micro-dermal specialist and Danny is a tattooist. They are both heavily modded, both having split tongues, facial tattoos and multiple piercings) but the wedding meal after the ceremony was a trip to MacDonald’s eaten at their house!  Their evening reception and buffet was held at at our local rock bar, Sanctuary and was fancy dress, hence the grooms rather fetching nurses outfit!

Seriously guys, put your eyes back in their sockets right now and enjoy!

Hell Yeah Balloons are Punk Rock

Anthony & Shealyn were actually not engaged at the time the session took place. However, just a week after the shoot they realized that they just could not live without each other and got engaged!  I am so smitten with this session – the purple and yellow look oh so fabulous together and the couple are too damn funky for words. Photographer Sheri told me all about the day:

Other than specifying that they’d like incorporate purple balloons (which Anthony brought to Shealyn on their first date) we were left to our own creative devices. I was inspired by their edgy style and chose backdrops that would make them pop. I like the contrast of their hard, black style against the softness of the beach and the lightheartedness of the balloons.

We walked back to their apartment and they suggested hopping into the pool… mind you this was early January and cold even by San Diego standards.

Valentine’s Love Letter

This beautiful Valentine’s day/love letter themed shoot was sent to me by Alice Hu and I’m afriad I couldn’t wait until February 14th to share it with you. The shoot was put together for Fantasy Floral Designs. Amanda Heer is the original creator of the vintage brooch bouquet and for this shoot she created another keepsake bouquet called “Love Letter”.  The ‘flowers’ were made from vintage diaries and included photographs of loved ones to add another personal touch.  The invitations in this shoot were provided by Papeterie Store.
