A Crystal-Encrusted-High-Octane-Glitterati Seriously Rocking Wedding Day

Follow up posts are always fun, I always think when I see an engagement session ‘ooh I wonder what their wedding will be like?’ So it’s great to find out the answer! Nik & Nicole’s Desperate Housewife session gave me high expectations for their big day, and boy am I not disappointed. I am loving Nicole’s crystal encrusted shoes by Steve Madden (customised with the crystal by Nicole), cuffs and hairpiece from Dalita Moda and her phenomenal fishtail dress (check out the back!) designed by the bride and made by Carole Pitts. The bottom even detached for the dancing in the evening. Also check out that fabulous custom made ‘BRIDE’ necklace, also by Dalita Moda. It’s pretty bad ass right?

The bridesmaids look every bit SATC chic in their daring black dresses, also by designed by Nicole and made by Carole Pitts, and their fishnet tights…and the boys in all black – hummanahummana…

Backyard Beautiful

Lauren & Alexander got married last summer in their own back garden, surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and family. The whole day was a DIY affair and a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple. Lauren looks amazing in her simple Betsey Johnson dress and Moschino Chic & Cheap shoes, while Alexander bucked all the trends by wearing a casual T-shirt and Jeans from Nordstrom and by spending the whole day barefoot!

The wedding had a very comfortable, home-grown, relaxed party feel. The details weren’t really that important to this couple, ignored in favour of what really mattered to them – family, friends, home and love.

At Home with Hannah & Ali – An Engagement with a Difference

I wanted to try my damnedest to avoid sounding like some kinda of dumb jock as I wrote this but I think it is inevitable. When you see these you’ll understand me saying “Duuuuue these freakin’ RULE!”

Hannah & Ali chose to have their engagement session at home – and when you’ve got a house as intriguing and filled to the rafters with so many individual and quirky touches then why wouldn’t you? Plus the pussy cats got to play too and that’s always a good thing.

Vintage Zoo Wedding

Courtney & Michael’s wedding is one of those that you wish you could see a fresh everyday. I got so excited when photographer Jacquelyn sent me this wedding to look at! They had a small ceremony officiated by an friend of the bride which took place at Birmingham Zoo Lodge.  

Pretty much everything about this wedding was DIY.  The groom felted the cake topper (two birds sharing an ipod)  and all of the bouquets.  The brides birdcage veil and headpiece were made by her friend/hairdresser. They printed up tickets to throw instead of bird feed or bubbles. There was a small cake and punch reception afterwards where the guests were greeted by a llama and a parrot.  After the reception, the bridal party met at a local restaurant – Rojo – for some eats and then on to the after party!  The after party was held at a bar/antique shop called The Garage where there was much laughter shared and alcoholic beverages consumed. Courtney looks amazing in her dress by Unique Vintage and her adorable floral shoes by Not Rated.
