Here we go then my lovelies….let the Wedding Envy begin! This is seriously one of the most gorgeous weddings I have ever seen – I know, I Know I say that alot…but I really mean it this time…not that I didn’t with all the others…it’s just..oh screw it – just look at this!
I have a new, ever growing obsession with this colour green and peacock feathers and this wedding satisfys that! This wedding also features quite possiblly one of the coolest and most original bouquets I’ve seen – I want one! Sam’s beautiful dress used lace from her mother’s wedding mantilla, and they also tied a bit of it around the bouquet. It was designed and made by Dame Couture.
Sorry I can’t choose just a few photographs from this wedding. It’s a glamourous old Hollywood styled affair complete with a Marylin Monroe-esque Bride. These gorgeous photos speak for themselves, so I’m gonna shut and get one with it…sigh..stunning…
Mandy, the Bride had a photo session before the wedding with Faviana, the photos were then blown up and displayed above the stage in the reception.
Oh the drapes, the drapes! Romantic, stylish and beautifully lit…This has got to be one of the most glamourous and pink receptions I’ve ever seen.
The stage, complete with the huggge photos of the Bride…she sang at the wedding too – brave girl!
This wedding was featured on a TV show (which unfortuantly I haven’t been able to see) Apparatnyl the Bride wanted things very different to the norm. The show brought in an expert who was supposed to “class things up”. They air brushed over her tattoos, and made her choose a different dress and bridesmaid dresses. She wanted a cake with a giant cupcake and spiders- and he said no way! The Bride actually works as a Marilyn impersonator (hence the singing) and to top it all off the show paid for the whole thing!
There are not too many instances where I am actually blown away so much by the photographs I’m sent that I feel the need to post practically every single one. However today, like last week with DixiePixel (omg so freaking gorgeous), is one of those days (in fact the only reason I’ve omitted a few is because I’ve seen them so much on other blogs – and Rock n Roll Bride strives to be different don’t ya know!)
I was send these photos by Margaux, the girlfriend (and seemingly uber savvy PR guru – I’ve seen these photos on lot blogs – love it!) of Max Wanger – an editorial and up and coming wedding photographer. She says of these gorgeous images..
To be honest, since Max just decided to start photographing weddings he wanted to do an editorial type shoot to reflect his style. Shoko and Julian didn’t actually get married (yet!), but they are an adorable couple and were thrilled to participate. We all felt that this would be a great way for Max to get his name out there. Hopefully this doesn’t deter you from sharing the photos on your site. Our main goal was to showcase Max’s talent and share his beautiful work with as many people as possible — and for Shoko & Julian to get some really cool pics.
Is there any way I wouldn’t want to post!? Ahem NO!!
One of my most favourite bloggers, Justine Ungaro from The Unbride (when is the book coming out!?) got married a little while ago, and while she gave us a few bridal portrait photos I’ve been waiting (as have many others it seems!) with bated breath for the wedding photos!
So in answering our prayers, the lady has posted this message on her blog…
So it seems that some of you have been harassing my good friend and wedding photographer Greg Gibson so much that even though he’s in Brazil right now, he decided to post a couple of teasers from the wedding on his blog and for me to post here. Thanks Greg! [I swear to God that wasn't me!]
So here you go, hopefully there will be many more to share soon so hang in there a little longer…
The amazing Leah McKay did my makeup and Giselle did my hair…I don’t usually look this good…it took a very talented team (including Greg) to get me to look so much better than the person you just saw voting in her neighbor’s garage.
I flippin’ love Maggie Sottero dresses (hell I wore one – they have to be fab hehe!) and having discovered Emily Heizer’s website and seeing one of my most favourite dresses here too..well..well.well…
I am just totally in love with this girl’s style..the hair piece, the make up…and it goes without saying..the photography ROCKS
Its hard for me to pick only a few images from Dixie Pixel’s website..even just limiting myself to one wedding proved too difficult for words. I kept scrolling down the page and seeing more more more I love love love…and this is possibly the most photographs I’ve posted in one blog post! I usually try to limit myself to 5 or 6 images per post but sorry not today…
The photographer behind all this porn is Tara Kneiser. She emailed me to tell me how much she loved my blog (woot woot) and also to give me some extra info about her photographs. The last 3 (grainy) of these photos (flipping gorgeous!) was actually shot on film (big it up – so was our wedding). I love the grainy rawness of it all. They were taken with a Holga Camera, which retails for about $30.00 – how awesome is that!?
So in conclusion…Tara, Rock and Roll Bride salutes you – bloody marvelous! Now can we see some photographs of your own tattooed wedding now..pretty pleeeeese?
