Bride Aimee and photographer Naomi Kenton connected through Rock n Roll Bride. They both got talking via facebook about some weddings they’d both seen and liked on the blog and so after getting to know each other well in this informal way, Naomi shot her vow renewal to Ben.
Can we also just please stop for one minute and share some love for Aimee & Ben’s ink?! Seriously…wow. “Tattoos are a big part of both our lives as Ben is a tattooist,” explained Aimee, “and we are both really into all things rockabilly, hot rods and VW lovers so that’s what we wanted for the day. We are just ourselves and we do things the way we want and are happy as a result.”
The handfasting ceremony was held at Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire in April. “We wanted to celebrate our relationship and our two children, so we decided to renew our vows – we chose a handfasting as it was a lot more personal to us and was performed by a good friend Caroline Johnson.”
“I made the flowers myself and also used Jack Daniels bottles as decoration on the buffet table,” Aimee continued. ” I gave all the guests a favour bag that we got a couple of ‘meet & greet’ girls to hand out – which were white paper bags lined with tissue paper, in each I put a little spell bag, some heart bath fizzers for the women and skull shaped soaps for the men. For the children I gave duck shape bath fizzers and rhubarb & custard soaps.”
This fabulous shoot was set up to promote the Rock n Roll wedding planners, DandyLion Events and their new alternative bridal sessions. “A dandyBride is independent, interesting and fearless. she knows what she likes and her wedding reflects that! she wants people to know who she is instead of hiding behind traditional conventions” they say.
This goth bride inspired shoot was actually a promo shoot for singer Heidi Flemons. The shoot was held at Lake Texhoma, Texas and she wore a stunning dress from Gothic Wedding Dresses. The shoot has such a spooky yet serene feel..in fact like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The setting is just utter gothic perfection!
Australian photographer Angelica Peady is currently working on an awesome new concept in wedding-themed photo shoots, ‘I was late to the wedding because…’ After I featured her first shoot …‘Because we were having too much fun at the fair’ Angie wanted to send me the next installment too (hurrah!) and this one, ‘Because the ink wasn’t dry’, is so Rock n Roll Bride it hurts!
Black dress, inked bride, killer colours…hell yes I love this.
If you love Jessica & John’s rockabilly inspired Neon Boneyard day after sesh, you’re going to fo pretty nuts for their diy heavy wedding…coming up later today!
Chihye & Tom’s LA engagement speaks volumes of their love. From the simple moments between these two to the beautiful field full of ruby red heart balloons – what’s not to love about these?
It would appear that photographer Chrissy agrees with me “I don’t know if I have the words to accompany these photos. They truly speak for themselves. A couple so deeply and genuinely in love mixed with God’s beauty creates the most gorgeous moments. Chihye and Tom are another one of my kindful couples, our first meeting lasted hours over Sangria and Cuban food. The longer I do my job the more I believe in soulmates and magic.” (and I swear to God I wrote by ‘bit’ before I even read hers! It must be love…)
