“I ♥ LA” – Angel & Lilly’s Save the Date Video

I don’t post that many videos on their own as I’ll be honest, it takes a pretty damn good video to keep my attention for more than a few seconds. Angel & Lilly’s Save the Date however is in a whole other league of radness. I love them!

The couple, who made their own video are already married in their eyes (although legally they are ‘domestic partners’ – stupid Californian same sex marriage laws) as last October the two of them headed down to city hall to do the paperwork followed by an In-N-Out burger!

“It was just the two of us” Angel told me. ”After that was taken care of we went to In-N-Out for lunch, it’s sort of a Valentine’s Day tradition for us so it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate. Then we spent that night at a friend’s Halloween party in our zombie garb. Perfect end to a perfect day. The whole thing was very laid back, but we’re excited to get to celebrate with our friends and family this year.” They plan to do it all again on their anniversary this October and so made this video to invite all their friends & family to their pre-Halloween, circus/carnival themed wedding.

If this video is anything to go by their wedding is going to be seriously awesome! Thanks for sharing it girls!

Sue & Shonagh Whimsical & Wonderful Wedding – A Touching Tribute

Sue & Shonagh actually got married in May 2008, however following the sad passing of Sue’s Mum Hilary to Cancer just recently, with the full co-operation of the couple, both myself and photographer Caroline thought it would be a fitting tribute to share their whimsical and wonderful wedding with you today.

Sue (in the tartan dress) and Shonagh (in the blue dress) were neighbours of Caroline and as soon as she heard the couple we getting married she jumped at the chance to photograph it. Another friend, who also lived in the same building, Vonny Mullock, made both the brides’ dresses. Sue got ready in their flat and Shonagh got married in Vonny’s flat. The couple met on the landing between when they were both ready and headed out together to get married.

Gay wedding, Civil partnership, Wedding…the terminology doesn’t mean s*** to me. A wedding is a wedding and that’s that. The amazingly glam Brighton wedding of Matt & Leon was sent over by their photographer Lisa Devlin and I lapped up all the gorgeous details…who needs a bride!?

Leon & Matt got married on the anniversary of when they met and they day was a pretty memorable one! They squeezed into a stretch Hummer with their 8 bridesmaids, 3 flowergirls and the ring bearer for the short journey to Stanmer House near Brighton. Their ceremony was conducted by candlelight by a Registrar called Mr Love (!) and featured some incredible live singers.

Beautiful Birds

Laura & Gena whimsical & elegant wedding took place at the historic Moody Mansion in Galveston. They added delicious personal and fun touches which fitted in with the bird theme such as lots of vintage bird details to put around the ceremony and reception, including flowers in antique bird cages.  They had formal elements like flocked damask programs, Chivari chairs, a string trio and two topiary junipers which were contrasted with ideas such as little stuffed birds on the cocktail tables and an owl on the sign in table. Both brides wore dresses by Nicole Miller.
