I have so much to say about this awesome engagement shoot that I almost don’t know where to start…maybe the beginning? Photographer Thomas has pretty much hit the jackpot with Bobbi & Shelby – gorgeous, cool, tattooed, individual, up for it – what more could you want?
The couple came up with the ideas for this shoot themselves starting with a seedy motel scene, the setting is right out of a 70’s road trip movie complete with peeling paint, a broken television and retro signage. They then headed out, firstly to a junkyard and then to a field where they lay around looking gorgeous and had some fun on a bike…with a pinata (of course!)
Following this came the grand finale. Inspired by the now iconic Tanja Lippert ‘Chicken and the Naked Chick’ engagement shoot, Shelby donned a giant purple monkey suit and Bobbi well..got naked! Love love love….I just adore these.
The majority of the weddings and photo shoots I feature are sent to be by photographers or recently married couples, however occasionally I’ll come across a session so damn cool that I have to email the photographer right away and demand to feature it! This was one of those sessions.
I’d followed William Massey‘s work through a group on flickr for a while now yet it was only now that I really stood up and took notice. Philip & Anela were one of those couples that I instantly knew would suit Rock n Roll Bride to a tee – punky, retro, vintage, quirky, cool…they suited all these words that I overuse everyday on my blog.
This tattooed, converse bride and Doctor Who geek groom had a fabulous Halloween wedding in Southhampton, UK. The 1970’s inspired spiderweb bridesmaid dresses, the carousel, the Cadillac and the haunted house themed reception all made for a wedding to remember!
I have a very exciting week ahead of me (all will be revealed soon!) but I’ve just got time to share this beautiful film (shot in the UK oh yes) sent to me by reader Andy. It has such a gorgeous vintage 70’s vibe and I just adore it! Soak it up baby…
