Antique Market Dreams

I have much love for Chicago photographer Jeremy Lawson  and it’s always a pleasure to feature his Rock n Roll weddings – especially when they are as awesome as the one of Mary & Alton.

The wedding took place at the uber cool Salvage One, which, with it’s awesome signage and rustic, almost derelict, antique market interior  provided the perfect backdrop to the event. Mary’s vintage look was provided by local Chicago design  Jess Audey who custom made her beautiful dress and Antje Kastner at Tigerlilie who did her retro/rockabilly style hair and make up.

A Sunday Kind of Love ~ Julia Boggio

Julia Boggio VB 7x5

Behold – a new feature! From the various emails, tweets comments I’ve received over the last few months I’ve come to the conclusion that you love regular posts – in particular Thursday Treats and I love writing them so I thought I’d try to do a few more…

I was lucky enough to be invited to Julia Boggio’s grand studio opening (full report and exclusive piccies coming soon!) on Thursday and after much schmoozing with the glitterati of the British wedding industry I came to realise that I know so many amazing, talented and generally fabulous people here and all over the world. My plan is that every Sunday I’m going to share with you someone who’s been particularly fabulous to me that week or someone who’s work has blown me away. It’s my way of saying ‘I heart you’ as well as hopefully letting you know about some people you might not have heard of before. I hope you can put them all to good use in your own weddings. I also hope this feature will be a popular one as I know a lot of awesome people and I’d like to be able to share them all with you!

So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you this week’s victim – the way-too-fabulous Julia Boggio. I’ve chosen her because not only is she a multi-tasking force to be reckoned with – photographer, business women, writer, entrepreneur, teacher and general conveyor of all things vintage and gorgeous, but she put on such a fantastic do on Thursday and she deserves a bit (well a lot) of love for it!  She also made me look hotter than I ever have in my Vintage Boudoir shoot and she even got to dance with Patrick Swayze on the Opera Winfrey show… I know!

Julia I heart you.

Retro & Kitsch

Oh baby, you are going to love these! Heidi & Rick’s retro engagegement session just oozes 50’s and 60’s kitsch cool. Heidi wore a dress that she actually bought from GAP about 9 years ago and added the apron that she made herself. The show may also have been a little bit stolen by Ginger the cocker spaniel however!

French Vintage Glam

Rebecca & Michael wanted a French/Hollywood vintage glam style shoot to signify their engagement. They loved the idea of having a whimsical, vintage feel and Rebecca’s inspiration was that she wanted a shoot that really meant a lot to them as a couple.  The fascinator she wore belonged to her grandma when she was young for example.

“We were able to create some old Hollywood romance in a local cafe” Australian photographer Tenielle told me. “It looksed as if it belonged in the French countryside. The Cafe we shot at was called ‘Cafe Bouquiniste’, and the owner Meredith has a love for Paris, Books and all things French as you can tell.”

A Punk Rock Kinda Day

The majority of the weddings and photo shoots I feature are sent to be by photographers or recently married couples, however occasionally I’ll come across a session so damn cool that I have to email the photographer right away and demand to feature it! This was one of those sessions.

I’d followed William Massey‘s work through a group on flickr for a while now yet it was only now that I really stood up and took notice. Philip & Anela were one of those couples that I instantly knew would suit Rock n Roll Bride to a tee – punky, retro, vintage, quirky, cool…they suited all these words that I overuse everyday on my blog.
