Handmade

Wow. This has got to be one of my favourite DIY/handmade weddings ever…the Bride even made her dress! What a gorgeous, homely, hilarious, personal and rustic feel this beautiful barn wedding has. I have never seen so many genuinely happy people. It makes me smile.

OK so I went crazy with the amount of photographs I’m adding to this post – but you know, I was actually kinda restrained! Click here for more, including all the preparations…

Thanks Bertie (as always!)  Edit: Remember this engagement shoot? Well I’ve just realised it’s their wedding..no wonder it’s so amazing. This two are too stylish for words.

Just The Two Of Them

Terri & Sebastian eloped in Barcelona, just the two of them plus David McNeil the photographer (click here for the photographs) and Claire McDonnell the make up artist…here are their vows to each other.
What is it with all the videos nearly making me cry today?! I was under the impression my cold shell was impenetrable!

David was also featured on Wedding TV last Saturday and I totally forgot to share the link…go see him talking about his work, in particular Terri & Sebastian’s wedding here (approx 26 minutes in) Plus try to spot the me & husband as models in some of the photographs shown…hint my hair is brown!

The Strangest Damned Gang…

This gorgeous shoot reminds me of a gangster movie..I don’t know why really, but I could totally imagine this couple as Bonnie & Clyde, does that make me weird? I think it’s the hat, the expressions, the glitz, the glamour…all good stuff, not because I could see them robbing a bank!

The strangest damned gang you ever heard of. They’re young. They’re in love. They rob banks

Meant To Be

As soon as I clapped eyes on this wedding I knew I wanted to share it, so straight away I emailed the photographer who promptly got back to me saying as soon as she arrived to shoot this wedding she knew she’d want me to feature it! How great it that? This post is clearly meant to be!

Jessi & Sean were married in at a park in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
They wanted a different, unique, fun and green wedding and they certainly achieved that. Pretty much the whole wedding party drove down to the wedding in their vintage vespa scooters and instead of rings, the couple exchanged stamps in the place for their matching tattoos to go.

I am totally crazy about the portraits of the Bride - so sexy, almost 50′s peep show gorgeous!

Thanks for sending these my way Solaria – I’m so glad we thought of each other!

Do It Yourself!

OK I am officially blown away by this couple and this wedding. It bright and it’s fun and it looks like a wedding I would have loved to be at!

Nicola & Ben got hitched at Tithe Barn, Hampshire and did as much DIY as was feasible.  This included all the invites, the favours, the decorations (yes, Martha Pom Poms… all 450 of them!), the table plan, the order of the day booklets…

Nicola says
It was well worth the extra effort when we saw all our hard work come together on the day
and I have to agree – the result is quite frankly spectacular, gorgeous and inspiring,. Plus I am sooo jealous of Nicola’s amazing Candy Anthony dress & petticoat (and her veil which she made herself for the grand total of £1.50!)

The couple also had a cine film wedding video that I can’t wait to see (and share with you of course) when they get it back.
