Spooky & Dark

Filipino photographer Jeffroger Kho sent me these stunning engagements which perfectly reflect his wild, crazy, and downright addictive’  style.

These are kinda spooky and dark but I seriously love them (yes even the creepy doll) Check it out…

The client Mark and Johanna are photographers and very artistic individuals.  You can check out their site here as well Happy Garaje Graphic Design and Illustration.  Their style is really dark, desaturated, and textured.  And I am happy that I was able to capture that and also reflect the clients style.

The outfits are from the clients own wardrobe.  They pretty much have everything already.  They collect a lot of old stuff as well so it quite reflects much of their personality.  I believe that this set is very Rock n Roll because it’s different, downright crazy, non-conventional, and most importantly it reflects much of the personality of the client and not just a random theme just for the sake of having a theme.

Thanks Jeffroger!

ps be sure to vote for your favourites to win the Tinywater photo shoot contest, but pleeeease only one vote per person, lets keep it fair people! (plus I can see if you’re multiple voting so there really is no point.)

Theological

A scholoristic wedding with a Best Girl rocking it in a top hat is something to be shared. Sharon & Dan definitely went all out to make sure their wedding was truly original, even so far has having the one of a kind 1925 Studebaker as their wedding transport. They also had a theologian conduct their ceremony which was written with the work of Lord Byron, William Morris and Walt Whitman in mind.

If you want to know more about this highly intellectual wedding, check out the Groom’s Blog!

Edit: I just recieved an emaiol from the Groom with some great bonus info about their wedding..check it!
We wanted to include a little of all our favourite things in our wedding – thankfully, it all worked together! Sharon’s an artist and curator and I’m a historian and philosopher, so it was only appropriate to hold our ceremony at Villa Alba – a historical house turned museum preserving amazing examples of Aesthetic mural art.

We went for a peacock theme overall – blues, greens and violets – and couldn’t have been happier with the result. Peacocks are associated with empty vanity, but I find them philosophically compelling; it’s been scientifically demonstrated that a peacock’s display is a genuine reflection of its overall health – that’s the evolutionary advantage. Really, they’re a symbol of beauty as the product of abundant life, the kind of happy and creative life we have together.

We both designed our own outfits – each is a mix of early and late 19th century design, Regency and Belle Époque – and our respective dressmakers did amazing work. Most of the accessories  are vintage or from independent designers, on Etsy or around Melbourne.Our Bridesmaid and Best Girl, Nix and Charis, are both long-time dear friends. Nix’s dress was by the same dressmaker as Sharon’s, and Charis’s suit and waistcoat from the same vintage shop and tailor which provided my brooch and outfit. Charis’s mother – indeed a leading Doctor of Theology – agreed to conduct our ceremony, for which we are eternally grateful!

Special thanks to photographer Jessie for sharing this wedding with me.

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!
