Snow Queen

Shandi’s bridals are seriously swoon-worthy! Photography-envy anyone? Her dress was from Belle Bridal in Logan, UT which she rocked up with some red gloves for the shoot (she is going to wear black ones on her wedding day in February.) I can’t wait, can you?!

Wow what an exciting weeks it’s been so far. Not only are things hotting up (as ever) with the votes for the winners of the Kat Braman Free Photography Contest (if you haven’t voted yet then go ahead and do it already!) but blog land exploded with excitement over my Vintage Boudoir shots with Julia Boggio. We knew they’d go down well but we never expected anything like the response we got. Thanks so much for everybody who commented on the blog, on twitter and on facebook. I read every single one and they all brought a smile to my face. Extra special thanks to all the other bloggers who took the time to write about and share the photos on their blogs already – Hot Pink Brides, Little White Book Blog, Charley Beard, Plans and Presents, Always Andri, Flutterfly Events & Boho Wedding and Events.

♥ First up, I’ve cracked and joined Formspring. For those of you that don’t know, it’s a website where randoms ask you questions. I don’t quite ‘get’ the appeal right now but I guess that’s how Twitter started! Hell, if I get some good ones then I may even post them here next week. So, wanna ask me a question?

Fairy Lights, Scrabble & English Heritage

Ella & Sam’s London wedding was such a gorgeously quirky affair that not only I was boiling over with excitement to blog them, but Emily from the ridiculously popular (and in fact one of my personal favourite blogs) Once Wed was too. So we’ve decided to join forces on this one and to both share our favourite bits of this gloriously English affair. For all the ceremony and portraits head over to Once Wed and I’ll handle the beautiful reception details.

You might actually recognise Ella from her sister’s wedding that I also featured on Rock n Roll Bride a while back – who could forget those wonderful red shoes?! While Tara opted for a bright and colourful summer wedding, Ella & Sam’s day was one of enviable vintage glamour and sophistication – with a touch of Rock n Roll of course! I am absolutely crazy for those bridesmaids in sparkly black jackets and the un-corordinated patterned tights (which I think they wouldn have got from Topshop as I have a couple of them in my wardrobe!) Sam’s awesome floral shirt and bow tie combo and Ella’s beautiful Benjamin Roberts dress.

The wedding which was held in Grenwich, London was one of English Heritage and followed by a secret dinner at Davy’s Wine Vaults, decked out with candles and hand-chosen gifts for everyone.

“I always wanted a winter wedding full of candles and fairy lights” Ella told us “and Davy’s Wine Cellar in Greenwich provided the perfect blank canvas for us to decorate and add the personal touches we wanted to surround our guests with. Each guest was given their own personal present as a favor and Sam personally decorated all 80 of the Scrabble-themed namecards to make them laugh upon finding their seat; he was literally covered in feathers and glitter at the end of his little DIY session!  The staff at the venue were so kind and lovely and really made the day. They pretty much let us do whatever we wanted and they let us pick our favourite food, a good old British roast dinner.”

Retro Rockabilly Bridals

These rockin’ bridals were shot in downtown Freeport, TX in a part of town that is practically deserted – very sad but really made for some pretty rad results.  For their wedding, the couple are going for a retro rockabilly feel complete with pink wing tips for the bride.  Forget any of the usual traditions, this pair each had a custom skateboard made to commemorate their big day which will be happening in February!

Under the Spotlight – Jordan McLachlan

JMCL_portrait_003

I’ve got a true Rock n Roll photographer to share with you today! Jordan McLachlan’s music business background certainly gives him the credentials worthy of shooting your Rock n Roll wedding. “I’ve worked in the music industry for more than 10 years as magazine writer/editor and photographer,” he told me “Plus I’ve run a PR/marketing agency looking after music clients. So over the years I’ve written for most of the big specialist titles like Guitarist, Total Guitar and Rhythm magazines (I still do odd bits for Rhythm – the most recent interview is a cover with Dominic Howard from Muse that hits the shelves next month).”

With the gorgeous texture and tone, and the subtle, muted hues throughout his documentary styled images, there’s certainly a lot more than guitar riffs behind Jordan McLachlan.  Let’s get on with learning more about the man behind the music shall we?

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Jordan McLachlan and I’m a photographer. One of the things I do is slightly quirky-but-pretty documentary wedding photography.

Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?

I live on the Essex/Herts border about an hour from London. So London, East Anglia and the South-East are on the doorstep, but I love to travel …
