Omar & Laarni’s ridiculously awesome engagement session was shot using a Mamiya RB67 Polaroid Back Camera by the genius brothers that are MangoRED. Now I may be obsessed with beautiful photography, but most technical jargon totally passes me by. Yet I thought it necessary to include that information with this post, as I’m sure, if you’re anything like me, these will I literally stop you in your tracks as they hit you sideways with their awesomeness. LE . SWOON .
Emily looked ridiculously stylish in her Ian Stuart dress…actually called ‘Rock n Roll’ no less (!) and her custom made shrug to match by Holly Stalder. I am also loving the faux fur coat she rocked when walking to the ceremony from Per Una at Marks & Spencer.
To make their wedding truly their own, the couple bought local ale and champagne for their reception, had a friend do all their flowers and each guest was asked to choose their favourite song to have it played at the reception. Emily also asked her Mum to read a poem she wrote at the ceremony
As in a perfectly beautiful painting, where colours and tones mover together;
And make us pause for breath, because such co-existence is a display of the perfect and simple possibilities of this world.
So, in marriage, when you do not need to hold his hand, or feel her breath on your cheek
But know that love is ever present, that undeniable depth of love and care that cannot be explained or measured.
That dear Emily and John is our wish for you.
Continuing their perfect Rock n Roll day, acoustic versions of Metallica songs played as the guests entered their reception at The Great Barn.
Can you say ‘high fashion supermodels’??! Erica & Billy certainly fit the bill and I am so excited to share them with you today. Not only are their outfits awesome beyond belief (Erica’s fur coat is way too fabulous) but New York makes for the perfect edgy, backdrop to this shoot.
It’s official. I am actually starting to finally believe that the UK is catching up to America in the style stakes. When this wedding winged it’s way to me from the West Midlands (that’s a bit up north for my American readers!) I knew straight away that sharing it would make me a very happy blogger indeed.
Magda & Seba’s funky NYC wedding took place at a Catholic church in Brooklyn and then the party continued at Staten Island’s Grand Plaza. Their day had a distinctive black and red theme with certainly an edge of Rock n Roll – Magda even DIYed their beautiful and impressive centerpieces (flowers supplied to Carol’s Florist) adding the crystals herself to really pile on the glamour. The cake also perfectly fitted their uber glam theme and was made to match their own vision by The Cake Topper, NYC.
