Is it just me or doe s Rachel look a lot like the gorgeous Anna Friel?! Off topic slightly but I just had to thrown that out there. The idea for this shoot came from the bride herself. She had always been a huge fan of Tori Amos and so told photographer Duston Todd that around the time that her idol got married, and in reference to her song ‘Jackie’s Strength’, she was quoted to have said
“There’s one side of me that could very easily have ended up at the 7-Eleven sitting outside drinking a Slurpee in my wedding dress and just missing the whole thing. And then there’s the other one that did make it to the church. So, this song is about the one that drank the Slurpee. She’s still out there somewhere.”
I know I say this a lot but eeek I am so excited to share Vince & Amanda’s wedding. I have been lusting over it ever since Lisa of Ophelia Photography showed me a sneaky peak and the full wedding certainly lives up to my hype!
So I may have written a massive article about how fab Erica Berger is just a two days ago, but when she showed me these photographs and told me the couple found her through Rock n Roll Bride…well I wasn’t going to say no to sharing these little beauties was I!?
The Sloan’s are those kind of photographers who’s work gets snapped up and featured the second they blog it. So you can imagine my elation to receive an email from the pair who asked if I would like first dibs on Heather & Austin’s engagement session. A pink haired chick and that Californian light? Seriously guys, there was no question!

Here we go then my pretties, which one of you lovely ladies is the luck winner of the custom brooch by Sana of WristieLove – designed especially to fit your wedding theme?
I thought long as hard about this, but my favourite entry, and the winner is….
Bowie Bride who said:
Hands down fave: The Mini-Pearl Clockhand Brooch. We’re having a vintage-y, David Bowie-inspired, handmade decor, homemade beer, non-gender-specific bridal party, with my sister playing electric guitar as we float down the ol’ aisle, kinda wedding. We’re not really tied down to color – just a bunch of pastels mixed with black, red, peach, and off-white. We want it to look homemade and antique-y, so this brooch would be a fantastic addition. i would use it to pin on my bouquet – i am making my bouquet from scratch out of pins, brooches, handmade t-shirt flowers, newspaper, and whatever else ‘pretty’ i can find. This brooch is stunning and I would be honored to receive it.
Congrats! Sana will be in touch to get all the details to make your prize perfect. I can’t wait to see the result!
Don’t forget, the Love Me Do Photography contest is still very much open. Who wouldn’t want free wedding photography!?
This boudoir session has it all – fishnets, pinstripes, killer heels, peacock feathers and watery eyed goth make up…gotta love it.
