When I received the initial email from Roland of S8 Films I was blown away. Not only did I instantly adore their work but I was delighted to discover they are London based (in fact right around the corner from my soon-to-be-part-time ‘day’ job!) The Super 8 format has been growing in popularity over the last few years. From it’s grainy texture to it’s raw, ‘real’ appeal, it’s easy to see why brides all over the world have fallen in love with it. In fact if we had made the decision to have a wedding film made, I know Super 8 would have been the way we’d done it.
Inspired by the movie, Aaron and Kassee’s engagement shoot had that perfect retro, kooky and quirky feel. The pair even went to some of the iconic locations in the film including Angels Knoll park and Los Angeles Union Station.
I am really starting to fall head over heels in love with Matt Johnson Photography…and I’m not afraid to admit it! His images are subtle, unobtrusive and captures beautiful weddings with all the justice they deserve.
Elodie & Greg’s wedding was one I fell in love with as soon as I saw the first frame. Her amazing vintage-inspired outfit, jewellery and so-now white lace gloves make me smile with glee and his rad groom style puts every other groom to shame! The no-jacket/waistcoat look is totally Rock n Roll and looks way-too-cool when matched with his boys in braces. The details of this wedding are to die for – from the birdcages, the white heart motif, the retro ‘admissions’ sign, the outdoor chandelier. Awesome.
One of the greatest things about my job as a blogging maestro is all the wonderful people I get to meet…and it’s even better when we get to meet in real life! The delightful Emma Case is down in London for a few weeks and so emailed me and suggested we meet up go out for Sushi. Now, those that know me will be well aware that I’m not one to say no to Sushi! We met up last Tuesday and immediately hit it off, talking non-stop about wedding planning, photography, blogging, husbands, proposals, flowers, music…you know the drill! I was particularly excited to hear about some fabulous weddings she’s shot over the past few weeks and lucky for you I got first dibs on sharing them all with you (score!)
First up is Helene & Simon’s fabulously chic and rustic Yorkshire wedding and Helene looks ridiculously gorgeous in her vintage style dress made for her by Dresses at No. 9?
When Christina & Mitch turned up to their engagement session with their beloved ’68 Corvette in tow, photographer Clayton Austin was instantly inspired and channeled Steve McQueen as the idea behind the shoot. As a little bit of a petrol head myself, I can totally relate to how Clayton described the day.
Sarah & Kevin’s darling backyard wedding took place in a friend’s back garden in Arlington, Texas. The vintage-inspired theme with robin egg blue touches made for the perfect, personal picnic wedding. The day was styled by Revolution Garden and several of the wedding accessories (including the invitation, all hair accessories, the sign-in painting, and the decorated hat box) were hand-made by them as well. The whimsical bouquets made of all off-white and vanilla flowers and the boutonnieres were created by The T Shop. The bridesmaids wore dresses from Anthropologie and the bride’s dress was put together with thrift store shopping including Buffalo Exchange.
