In Loving Memory

I am truly honoured to be allowed to share these gorgeous images with you today. Gia Canali sent me these wonderful photographs of her parents as a tribute to her Father who has recently passed away.

Her parents clearly had some fabulous style on their wedding day (and the wedding day of Gia’s Uncle) and I am just so honoured to share these stunning photographs. Her Mum’s wedding dress and that gorgeous sundress were actually made by her Grandmother too (who took this photograph) how multi-talented!

From Gia…
Those of you who know me well know that I buried my father last week, after he battled leukemia for almost three years.  Now begins the harder project—reassembling my memories of him.  All our photographs are suddenly worth more.  This photograph of my parents on their wedding day hung in their bedroom when I was a child.  I have always, always loved it.

So, here’s to you, Dad.  I’m not sure how I’m going to get through photographing the father-daughter dance for the rest of my life … and I miss you so much

Vintage War Time Shoot

I think it’s fair to say that our love of all things vintagey when it comes to wedding will never go away…whether it’s weddings, bridal shoots or trash the dress, vintage styling will always be glamorous, always be chic and always be popular.

So, with no desire to buck this trend (just because something is popular doesn’t mean it can’t be individual too) I’m excited to share this war time-esque photo shoot by South African photographer Kat Forsyth…(it took place at the Johannesburg Museum of Military History)

I’d love to know, what is it about vintage styling that you paricularly love?

Some Might Say I’m A Little Over Excited…

When something grabs me like these have, I can literally feel the excitement bubbling up inside of memust blog must blog must blog!

About 30 seconds ago these popped up on Angie & Matt Sloan’s Twitter(s) and I am just dying to be the first blog to share them with you all. How gorgeous is Mele? This shoot is absolutely glorious.

OK calm down now Kat, you may well have got a little bit over-excited there.

Fashion Fusion

This girl has got some wicked style! Gotta love the Hollywood glamour/Japanese fusion of her whole outfit, from the shoes to the veil to the dramatic black sash…
If you too are planning a black, white & red themed wedding, you have absolutely got to check out the rest of the wedding details. Gorgeous and inspirational!

Reel Good

Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me.  It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that  it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out.  But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that.  Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you.  Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!

First up a short and sweet little promo video…
