It’s official. I am actually starting to finally believe that the UK is catching up to America in the style stakes. When this wedding winged it’s way to me from the West Midlands (that’s a bit up north for my American readers!) I knew straight away that sharing it would make me a very happy blogger indeed.
I featured Mary’s killer bridal session earlier this year – the aviators, gun and cigar really did it for me - so as always I’ve been eagerly awaiting for her wedding to Opie and I’m certainly not disappointed. I’m so excited that photographer Jenna wanted to share these with us:
On her big day Mary not only rocked finger waves (vintage chic oh lala), a consignment shop wedding dress, a DIY wheat bouquet and red heels, but she and her beloved, Opie, had a wedding pie instead of wedding cake, saw each other before the ceremony (yay!), gave homemade truffles to their guests (and their photographer as well, which doubles their coolness factor in my book), and served hamburgers as their wedding dinner.
The UK is seriously on fire this week and I’ve got another fantastic British wedding so share with you. However this one is extra extra special as Sally & Peter actually found their photographer, Kate, through Rock n Roll Bride! Woo to the Hoo!
Kate talked all about Sally & Peter and their wonderfully eclectic day on her own blog:
Yeah so I’ve gone a little nuts with this post. Sixty four photographs may be a lot to share in one bumper go, but once you lay eyes on these I know you’re going to allow it!
Chad & Christine, what can I say? The super stylish pair had a fabulous eco wedding at the end of October at Lake Oak Meadows. The bride wore a Sue Wong dress which she bought from Saks and both she and her groom had wooden rings made by Gustav Reyes which of course complimented their rustic, eco, hippy-chic theme to a tee. The bridesmaids all chose their own dresses from David’s Bridal and the boys wore suits from Men’s Warehouse.
This is such an exciting post for me because not only have I been dying to see Jenn & Brad’s ever since I featured their junkyard engagement shoot and saw Jenn’s Couture bridal shoot, but today I get to work alongside two of my favouritest blogs, Ruffled and Green Wedding Shoes, to bring you the full report on their fabulous wedding day!
What I love the most about blogging is making friends and getting to know people all over the world. The bride, Sarah actually emailed me a few months ago to ask my advice on something and so I have been looking forward to seeing their wedding and her bridal shoot since then…and I now have a new friend who’s moving to London next year – woo!
Dustin and I are both in the creative field, so we definitely wanted to put our talents (and our friend’s talents) to good use. We had friends create the save the date poster, read poems for the ceremony, play guitar and sing during the ceremony, create the invitations/placecards/programs, you name it!
