This colourful bridal shoot is so fun! You’ve gotta love model Amanda‘s pink hair (some loyal readers might recognise her as her unicorn wedding was featured inside issue 4!), the Couture Company dress and that fabulous Scottish landscape.

“When meeting with photographer Tub of Jelly, our conversation moved very quickly towards more fun and colourful options for the shoot –  candy pink thistles and tiaras delicately constructed from metallic florals”, explained stylists Ginger and Lime.

Caro Weiss Photo Bloom Shoot-74

Oh have I got a beauty of a photo shoot to share with you today! Inspired by the fabulous Bloom Floral separates collection by Rowan Joy, I have a sneaking suspicion you’re going to love it just as much as I do.

“The idea for the shoot came about when dress designer extraordinaire Rowan Joy posted an image of her latest creation on her Instagram and I dropped EVERYTHING and told her that I MUST do a shoot with her!” said photographer Caro Weiss. “The concept was for all things botanical and nature inspired so flora, fauna, butterflies and more were all thrown in the mix and we roped in flowery wizard Di from Myrtle and Bracken who created an incredible vertical garden and natural and wild bouquets and Janet from Rene Walrus who went wild with real taxidermy butterflies combined with her incredible accessories.”

This is England ’86 Inspired Wedding Shoot

This is England Inspired Wedding Shoot (41)

If you loved This is England as much as I did, then you’re definitely going to adore this wedding shoot inspired by the ’86 series. Gotta love something with a bit of GRIT! The show is all about subcultures in the 1980s, as well as friendship and love, so it’s the perfect starting off point for a wedding themed shoot.

“These photos show that you can have the wedding of your dreams, something that truly reflects your personality without being thrown into debt for years to come!”, said Lauren, who worked on the shoot. “So as well as being cool and pretty, I wanted this shoot to be honest, real and raw. This is why it features real mods, original skinheads and goths. They are all real life friends and real couples! They all understand what the alternative way of life is about.”

Love’s Highway: Eloping in the Desert

The desert is one of my favourite places. It wasn’t always (dusty, dry, hot..!), but after visiting Nevada four or five times now, I’ve finally succumbed to it’s charms. It’s just so enormous and spectacular! It’s the kind of landscape that you’ll never see anywhere else so is it any surprise then that so many couples opt to drive out there for their wedding shoots?

This wedding inspiration shoot was put together by planner/ stylist Paloma Cruz Eventos. “The idea behind this shoot was a couple eloping in secret”, she explained. “This couple doesn’t follow the rules!”

A Colourful Pom Pom Extravaganza

A Colourful Pom Pom Extravaganza (7)

There’s nothing that adds instant colour and fun to a wedding as easily as rainbow pom poms! While is why when I saw this shoot I knew I had to feature it.

The thing I love the most about these photos is that there are lots of ideas of how you can incorporate pom poms into your day in a more creative way that just hanging them from the ceiling. What about a pom pom headband, having them hanging from your bouquet or all over your cake!? You could craft a pom pom covered chandelier or throw them instead of confetti!

“This shoot was about us challenging ourselves to turn a pom-pom concept into something beautiful that translated into the wedding industry”, said stylist Janelle. “It was important to us that the style of the shoot always reflected the fun and excitement that we felt for it.”

Two Brides Are Better Than One: Barbie and Kendra Get Married

Two Brides Are Better Than One Barbie and Kendra Get Married (15)

Usually it takes a couple of months for something to be published on the blog after I receive a submission for a feature (yes, my wait list is huge!) but when Barbie and Kendra’s perfect pink pride-filled shoot landed in my inbox yesterday, and in light of the utterly tragic events in Orlando this week, I knew I had to let it jump the queue and feature it as soon as physically possible.

“I love doing styled shoots and am constantly brainstorming ideas for them that are out-of-the-box and never been seen before”, said stylist Leah of Color Pop Events. “One day the idea to do a Barbie-inspired wedding popped into my head, but I knew I wanted to shake things up a bit by have a lesbian couple for the models. I also knew that I wanted the shoot to be incredibly fun, pink and girlie. I must say that I am ecstatic with how it turned out!”
