Let’s Get Mad (Men)

Jen & Gavin won Ambient Studios‘ ‘Engagement Story Your Way’ contest with their unique 60’s/Mad Men idea which was fueled by their love of the show, and the style of the era. Photographers Larissa & Trevor told me all about it:

Both working within the creative industry the idea of a jumping into the character of a 60’s Advertising Executive seemed to be a great fit for this couple.  They seemed to enjoy every minute of it and we worked to create photos that not only represented the stark, strong personalities represented on Mad Men, but also their affection for each other (after all, in the end this fabulous couple is getting married!)
The Paddock, an amazing little pub in downtown Toronto was our first location and I have to say, these two ROCKED it!  The style of the bar, the classic cocktails, the clothes and Jen’s fantastic make-up and hair all came together perfectly. We also spent a bit of time in the Financial District to take advantage of the cityscape as a backdrop as well even though it was quite chilly.  All in all, I think all elements came together to create a great contemporary twist on a classic look!

Eco Touches for this Snowy British Wedding

You know I’m usually all about the rock chicks, but there is just something about a quirky, DIY, eco, British wedding that I just can’t resist…and that fact that the bride wore Vivienne’s (I have them in yellow)…well I’m sold! Photographer Mark told me the whole story:

Marie and Karl chose the personal, DIY approach to ensure their wedding reflected their eco-conscious principles, where possible, combined with their love of elegant, vintage styles, nature and music! The day was based in two venues in the Northern English Forest of Bowland on a snowy day in late December.

The invite package contained screen printed and hand stamped bunting on recycled card and a button badge! The couple also set up a website was to encourage electronic RSVPs.

Grungy, Decaying Attic Fashion Shoot

Sometimes the non-bridal stuff I get sent it so freakin’ awesome that it would be crime against humanity (and in this case fashion) not to share it. Karolina Skorek is a painter and photographer from Poland who’s just opened a photography studio here in the UK. This amazing shoot was done with her friend and fashion designer Ewelina Sliwa. Aren’t her designs just wonderful? I love the grungy, decaying feel to this attic shots. Fabulousa!

Brighton Belle

I just wanted to share a few images from Jed & Sarah’s funky yet classic Brighton wedding. Brighton is a really eclectic town on the South coast of England.

Brighton is full of eccentric characters and this wedding was so fun and quirky, even the registrar had kooky shoes and piercings.  The bride and groom were very cool – her mother in law made the dress and I think she looks fab, they got wed in the pavillion, then onto a double decker to the Grand Hotel for some food and drinks….It was all about their colourful personalities and the offbeat alternative nature of Brighton which I made sure to feature in as many of the shots as possible.
