Kimberly’s vintage dress (from Timeless Vixen) is adorable for a number of reasons, but I especially love how it is an absolutely perfect match to Anthony’s way too cool authentic vintage cowboy tuxedo and shirt! In fact the whole wedding was based around his very special outfit – who says it’s all about the Bride?
Thanks to the gorgeous Noa for sharing…

Amy & Jody certainly didn’t want a traditional wedding and went all out to show their individuality though their big day. As Amy told me, ‘We never wanted a conventional wedding. We wanted a mishmash of our favourite things and hoped it would all work out. Who needs a theme? We’re the theme!’
The couple had an intimate wedding with close family at Islington town hall which was followed by a massive party at The Distillers Bar. It was the small touches that made this day fabulous – whether that being the ice-cream van (free 99s all round!) the Cuban band or the tower of cupcakes and free flowing drinks that scream of British summer like Pimms.
Amy’s outfit was a vintage-inspired look at high street prices. The tea-length dress was by Aftershock, her adorable shoes were from Clarks and fascinator/veil was found in Topshop! The bag and jewellery were all real vintage finds and her best friend’s mum made her bolero.
I love Jody’s look so much! Sometimes the Grooms tend to let the team down (here in the UK anyway!) with slightly boring suits or unimaginative fashion choices, but not this Groom! He bought a vintage suit, shirt and cravat from J Simons in Covent Garden. The trainers have got to be my favourite part of his look. When on holiday in Vietnam, he asked a shoe maker to make him a pair of Adidas Hi-Tops out of embroidered silk, not realising the guy would actually agree. Photographer David said he loved having two pairs of gorgeous shoes to shoot!
The couple set aside a lot of time for portraits which was great because David really got to go to town with ideas and locations for the shoot – my personal favourite has got to the the fancy dress shop ones with Jody wearing a horse head! Random yes but I love it!
Thanks to Amy & Jody for sharing their day and to David for sending me the gorgeous images!

So these aren’t bridal at all but I totally wish they were – please someone be inspired and do something like this for a bridal shoot, how kick ass would that be?!
The model’s hat, necklace and dress are all from Frocky Jack Morgan. Store owner, Julia Barbee actually sells her reconstructed dresses to kick ass brides too, so who knows it looks like someone could rock this look for a bridal shoot after all!
Thanks to Alicia & Kenneth for sharing. MWAH!

Carrie & Brian got hitched on the snow-capped Mt. Hood at The Timberline Lodge. Carrie’s amazing dress, cashmere-and-organza ruffle bolero and hair piece with chenille dot netting, feathers and flowers were all designed by Elizabeth Dye (who I have featured a few times before) an independent clothing designer in Portland, Oregon.
Their wedding was a total adventure playground of fun. To get to the venue all guests had to snow cat up steep snow slopes of Mt. Hood in a near white out snow fall. Photographers Shawn & Bonnie went on to tell me more:
Beyond that the night was full of quirk and personal style, from their unique toasts that involved in-unison speaking to their wedding vows that were a written haiku read line by line by each person in attendance.
Thanks for sharing guys!
