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.
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.
Oh yes, yet another autumn/fall/Halloween wedding for you lucky lucky people, but this one couldn’t be further away in style from the last. Darby & Eric got married at Heritage Park in Dana Point California on October 3rd 2009 and the reception followed at Darby’s Parents home nearby with just some of their closest friends and family. A super personal, uber stylish affair the couple really went all out to make it their own. I am absolutely loving the autumn leaf bouquets and subtle Halloween theming around the event – not OTT, not crazy, just them.
From a career in Hollywood making glamorous outfits for superstars, Katherine relocated to Bali (!) 8 years ago where she designs and makes vintage reproduction dresses. Her stunning ready made creations for example start at just $400 in her wedding boutique and for a completely custom dress you’d be looking at prices from only $800. As everything is done online she will even ship out a loaner dress to you to make sure the cut and fit are perfect before she makes your dress.
One if their most popular dresses is the beeeautiful Wing Bust Dress. Not only is the fabric hand woven locally especially for the dress but you can add your own accent colour to match your wedding theme. Whirlingturban has a plethora of accent colour choices and you can even supply your own fabric if you have something more specific in mind.
Thanks to Katherine and the girls at Whirlingturban for taking part in the Under the Spotlight feature, and as a little bonus for you all they have offered a FREE matching bolero to any Rock n Roll Bride reader who quotes ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ when ordering the wing bust dress. Orders must be placed by 13th November 2009 to qualify.

OK OK excitement must been contained (although I nearly did squeal to myself in a crowded newsagents whilst on my own earlier today!) Those of you following me on Twitter or Facebook may already know but I am now a fully fledged and published writer. Oh yes how ridiculous is that! Me?! Meeeee?!!
I have featured the work of Marina from Red Heart Photography a number of times recently, every time she sends me something I am stopped in my tracks!
Christina & Justin had a personal ceremony on 09.09.09 in Kona (it was just the two of them – you can’t get more intimate that that!) and then followed it up with an amazing photo session with the lovely Marina.
