A Tattooed Rockstar Fest!

I’m on a (rock n) roll and I ain’t stopping, especially with these photographs to share – I know you are gonna go crazy over them (yeah I say that a lot but it’s really really true a lot.)

Remember this ridiculously fabulous movie credit style wedding video? The one with the Groom with his sexy voice and the Bride with her awesome tattoos? Sure you do!
Well the couple just got their wedding photographs back and Kate sent them straight over to me..woop woop! I didn’t think it possible after seeing their video, but the photographs are just as fantastic and they really make them look like total rock stars – seriously the most awesomely tattooed couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of blogging!

The couple did a lot of DIY to make their wedding totally their own…
We made all of our centerpieces out of vinyl records, and my husband hand painted/water-colored all of our table numbers. Our favors were temporary tattoos, and then a some of our friends that are also artists, painted “wedding related” pieces and we made them into stickers. We also built the altar.

Clicky here fore more (164 images!) Unfortunatly too many for even me to post!

The couple also have a watercolour and jewellery etsy store which you really must check out too. OK on to the good stuff!

International Goth

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.

Video Star – Kate & John

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!

ps go watch the rest of their videos here…I’m sure you will fall in love with them too!

Lolita Bride?

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!

ps If you fancy learning more about Japanese fashion and style, you must check out my gorgeous friend La Carmina’s fabulous blog!

Gothic Woodland

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….

Dress Up Fun

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.
