A Little Bit of Rock n Roll Magic

I’ve got another Luella’s Boudoir-related post for you now (can to tell I’m excited about tonight?!) Becci & Mark’s wedding is a pretty special one, for more reason than one. Not only did the pair find their photographer David McNeil through Rock n Roll Bride, but Becci also found and discovered the amazing vintage jewellery experts, Magpie Vintage. Who wouldn’t fall in love with their amazing designs after all!? As a DIY bride (Becci’s made her own dress from an original 1930’s pattern as well as her flowers and all the decor and details for their wedding) unfortunately the jewellery pieces she fell in love with were slightly out of her price range. However with a little bit of Rock n Roll Bride magic I was able to pull a few strings for her and the lovely ladies at Magpie Vintage were kind enough to lend her the gorgeous headband and necklace you see her wearing! How amazing is that?!

All You Need is Love

I’m a big Beatles fan. I love the emotion and feeling behind their lyrics, so much so that our first dance was ‘All you need is Love’ – the words of which I have tattooed on the inside of my wrist! So when photographer Amelia sent me Rachel & Joey’s Beatles themed engagement sesh, I jumped at the chance of a feature. I adore the adaptions of each song and famous moment – especially of course the John & Yoko Hair Peace Bed Peace scene. How many can you spot?

The Love Boat

I’m so lucky that I get to feature some of the craziest, most alternative and tattoo-gorgeous weddings out there. It’s one of the biggest pleasures of my job! However, occasionally a wedding that may not be the most ‘Rock n Roll’ will hit me between the eyes and give me just as much joy. Tanya & Christan’s Boat Club ‘Love Boat’ wedding at Molesey Boat Club on the Thames has such a simple, love-filled emotion that I couldn’t help but feature.

Art Deco Cinema & The Great British Seaside

No joke, I’ve been looking forward to seeing this wedding for weeks. I met up with photographer Emma Case a little while ago when she was down in London and as we wondered around Topshop (obviously the first place one might head when in central London!) she was eager to tell me all about this amazing wedding she’d just shot. It sounded phenomenal then and it’s even more awesome when I’ve put these images to the story.

“Liz & Steve were married in Worthing at the Worthing Dome” photographer Emma told me, “which has the most amazing art deco cinema on the ground floor and a gorgeous sun room with a balcony on the first floor where they hold civil ceremonies and the reception. Opposite to this scrummy building was the beautiful beach and Worthing Pier…. errr… wow. Liz wore a jaw dropping fishtail dress with a cute faux fur shrug, a cute pearl necklace and a birdcage veil… ahh man this photographer was so in her element! Oh and her shoes! Bright red!… yummy, yummy, yum, yum. Steve also looked pretty dapper in a cool navy suit teamed with a purple tie and matching purple thistle boutonniere.”
