Two Year Marriversary Love

On the 12th April 2007 my boyfriend and I headed to the river for a chilled out 5 year anniversary picnic which ended with him asking me to marry him.

On the 12th April 2010 a long haired husband and a pink haired wife (oh how things change!) will be having a quiet night together. No mess. No fuss. No bells. No whistles. Dinner, Alice in Wonderland at the cinema and love.

The past 2 years haven’t always been easy and haven’t always been blissful but today the computers will be switched off and we’ll just be together. That’s what’s important and that’s how we want to celebrate. Love rocks and I love my husband.

Creativity Running Wild

I have to be honest, I’ve been gagging to share Aubrey & Marshall’s wedding ever since photographer’s Stacie & Geoffrey (you may remember them from their own – way too damn cool wedding) sent me a sneak peek…not only because of how rad this wedding actually is, but because I have secretly been harboring a photographic crush on Lang Photographers (I’m probably their biggest Twitter stalker!)

Aubrey & Marshall diy-ed their whole wedding with very little budget – they just let their creativity run wild! Everything from the origami to the curtain, from the invitation to the pinwheels was constructed and created by the pair and I am dying over here! Oh tell me your love it as much as I do…

Doing it Their Own Way

Behold – Magalie and Travis’ darling, teeny tiny, super duper personal, diy-filled, homespun wedding. I fell in love with the simplicity of their day and wanted to share it not only because the photographs are utterly stunning, but because I wanted to show you a perfect example of how to do it ‘on the cheap’ without loosing beautiful touches that make my heart sing.

The pair employed no wedding vendors (except photographer Amber Hughes) for their wedding. They did the whole thing themselves and did it in style to boot! No expensive venue (they got married at home and had their wedding day shoot at Seawall) no over-priced outfit (Magalie wore a dress from BCBG, boots from Chooka with a flower in her hair from H&M.) The flowers were purchased in bulk from different florists in town and the couple put them together themselves. The tissue paper pom-poms were from a Martha Stewart tutorial. They pulled all the food and drinks together themselves and Magalie did her own hair and makeup.

The Designer Wedding Show February 2010 ♥ Highlights

atreception

A few weeks ago I was offered a couple of tickets to attend The Designer Wedding show in Battersea, London. The event took place from last Friday – Sunday so my friend (and photographer extraordinaire) David McNeil and I thought we’d go check it out in the hope to be inspired, have fun and to actually real-life-meet some of the amazing UK wedding vendors that we’ve met online. Today I want to share a few of my highlights and photographs from the event so you can see what fun we had. I definitely did and I even got to meet a bunch of Rock n Roll Bride readers. It was the first event I’ve been to where I actually got recognised which was surreal but certainly nice! Here are some of my (and David’s) faves.

Magpie Vintage undoubtedly had one of the busiest stalls of the day. I’ve wanted to meet Lisa & Tania for ages now and The Designer Weddingshow proved to be the perfect opportunity. I wondered up to their stand hoping they’d spot the pink hair and know it was me and as soon as I was within 20 feet I was greeted by Lisa with a massive hug and an “oh my god you look so young!” (haha way to suck up Lisa – you go girl!) and ” oh you simply must wear this necklace!” She the proceeded to drape a beautiful powder pink and teal green reclaimed vintage gem around my neck which I was lucky enough to walk around with all day (and yes I did remember to return it after!)

♥ Abbey of Sugalily Stationary and I have been chatting online for months now so it was great to finally meet her in real life. I fell in love with not only her but with her beautiful creations in paper, ribbon and sparkly bits. From retro to classic, colourful to muted, Abbey’s display was one of the most endearing there..and she had cupcakes! Now who could say no to that!?

♥ David and I had waaaay too much fun at the  Booth Nation/Glitterbooth. As we walked past I was instantly drawn to the 8 foot, silver glitter-covered photo booth. We were greeted by Seamus who immediately told us to hop in and give it a go, and inside only a bloomin’ built in wind machine (you can see we had fun with that!) I swear to god, if I was getting married again I would totally have one of these. Awesome!

♥ David fell in love with Emma Hunt’s simple, clean lines and said he would certainly be recommending their gowns to his clients!

Intimate.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Rock n Roll Bride favourite Tinywater, but Shay & Jenelle’s sweet and intimate little wedding has changed all that. What a perfect girlie afternoon it must have been.

Backyard Beautiful

Lauren & Alexander got married last summer in their own back garden, surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and family. The whole day was a DIY affair and a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple. Lauren looks amazing in her simple Betsey Johnson dress and Moschino Chic & Cheap shoes, while Alexander bucked all the trends by wearing a casual T-shirt and Jeans from Nordstrom and by spending the whole day barefoot!

The wedding had a very comfortable, home-grown, relaxed party feel. The details weren’t really that important to this couple, ignored in favour of what really mattered to them – family, friends, home and love.
