I really really love these! A little bit of international charm for a snoozy Sunday afternoon. What is it with those Europeans making everything looks so damn arty!?
Katya & Andrey are from St. Petersburg in Russia and after getting married, flew that very day to Prague for their Honeymoon and wedding day shoot! They also purchased many of their wedding items from here in the UK…I told you they were truly international!
Katya’s dress was from Gothic Wedding Dresses and her hat was from no other that Primark! (If you have never heard of Primark then you are seriously missing out..high street fashion but so ridiculously cheap that you don’t feel guilty filling a basket with a whole wardrobes worth of clothes on each visit…think £2 for s t-shirt, £5 for a pair of shoes, £8 for a bag – oh yes!) Andrey’s suit was made to measure at a shop in Camden Market.
Thanks so much to Tomasz for sharing these with me.
This may possibly be my favourite wedding video ever, because not only do the people in it seem like the kind of people I would love to hang out with and the whole wedding looks like it was a blast, but because the video just made me happy! I felt like I was watching the opening of a movie I had been dying to see for ages.
The video begins with a introduction from the Groom over scenes of the wedding (who by the way, has one of those amazing voices that just beg to be listened to) which then merges into what I can only liken to the the opening of a really amazing film. I actually wanted to get up and dance while I was watching this!
The Bride, Kate is going to send me her wedding photographs too, which I can’t wait to share, but I just had to get this video out there straight away. Seriously, you guys rock!
I’ll stick with a little non-wedding wedding inspiration for this post. I adore Japanese Lolita fashion and as soon as I saw these images I knew I’d have to share. Imaging Bridesmaids dressed like this! Cuuute!
I just got back from meeting out wedding photography competition winners with my friend and photographer David McNeil. Vana & Damien are even cooler in real life than they are on paper. We got on like a house on fire and spent about 2 hours chatting non-stop! I will blog all about it later (including photographs) but I just want to share some gorgeous gothic inspiration with you first (as always, too many gorgeous images to share not enough time!) Get a load of these….
Did you ever hear
Of the frolic fairies dear?
They’re a blessed little race,
Peeping up in fancy’s face,
In the valley, on the hill,
By the fountain and the rill;
Laughing out between the leaves
That the loving summer weaves.

I am really enjoying posting non-wedding specific inspiration right now. You can get wedding ideas from anywhere and everywhere. Although this shoot is not wedding related, wouldn’t it be amazing to have a photo shoot like this of you and your partner (or your Bridesmaids!)
A little bit gloomy, little bit gothic… a lot fun, sultry and stylish! These make me want to go play in a forest, dress up in tutu’s and cause some general mischief.
She took my breath away w!hen we first stepped in the bridal preparation room at the Rose Garden Inn. She was so elegant and so beautiful. The mood was calm, comfortable silences interrupted by feminine giggles. As she cut a part of her mother’s veil to add on to the hairpiece, I noted how important family was to her. Her red knee high boots sat in the corner as she got laced into her corset, accentuating her hourglass figure. Every move was deliberate and graceful, she was so inspiring. Everything about her was so unique, her redWai Ching dress was perfect.
