I’ve found another photographer’s blog that I know I’m going to spend hours pouring over..I actually discovered her though a new favourite wedding blog of mine, Darling Dexter, as she took the photographs for their wedding. Aren’t they stunning? And I just love the Bride’s dress, made by her Mother – gorgeous! Dresses like this make me wish I was tall and slim so I could carry them off too…
Just check out these little gems taken by Martha Manning
Here is a fabulously Rock ‘n Roll DIY wedding from back in March…I just can’t help but adore all these tattooed Brides!
The Bride designed and printed all of the invitations, programs, thank you cards & the reception programs herself. The flowers were bought at a farmers market the day before and only cost $125 for everybody’s… (that’s like £75!)
The favours were made by the Groom’s mother – she ended up making over 600 individual caramels which were put into little bags that were bought at a local paper store ($15 for 500), with temporary tattoos tied on with a variety of red, gold and black ribbon. The couple actually made the tattoos and had them printed online (temporarytattoos.com)
A thousand paper cranes (traditionally folded by the bride and groom before the wedding, patiently and methodically) are said to bring a marriage good luck to an Asian marriage. Now judging by these photographs, I reckon Kim and Brent will have a very lucky marriage!
The second beach wedding post today…but isn’t it worth it? I love the Bride’s short dress and diy flowers…it’s just lovely, simple and intimate wedding. The attendees included just the minister and 4 witnesses (but a goat did join them a little later for the photos..!)
This is one of my favourite of the brand new weddings I’ve found (do I say that a lot? oh well!) The couple did nearly everything themselves from the invitations (classy and elegant) to the ceremony and reception flowers to the decorations, and even so far as organizing for all of the men’s suits to be made by a fantastic tailor they found on a trip to Vietnam (via email in broken English!)
I am a little bit (no make that a lot) in love with the Bride’s hair do and veil – how very glamorous… She looks like a movie star of the 40′s!
One of my oldest friends Jon got married in October to Lucy. It was a gorgeous autumn day full of laughter and fun. My good friend David M McNeil did the wedding photography and aren’t they fab!?
I have posted about David’s work many a-time (on the old site – sigh) but I will never tire of doing so, he constantly surprises me with his amazing talent and no two weddings he shoots ever turn out the same. I will endeavour to re-post some of David’s work asap as anyone who hasn’t seen it is surely missing out!
The wedding was a DIY affair, it was very important to the Bride and Groom that they did things the way they wanted not the way everybody told them to! They are both very eco-conscious and took this into account with everything they planned.
