Krystal and Jarrod have been married for ten years and so wanted to do a photo shoot which would document them and their relationship as it stands today. Jarrod owns a garage which is where the session took place.
“I knew Krystal and Jarrod were celebrating their upcoming 10 year anniversary and wanted to do a shoot for them capturing the love they still have for each other, especially showing their comfort together”, explained photographer Kelley. “Engagement photos tend to be so over-the-top with love and affection – it ’s new, they’re excited to be getting married, life is some what easy… But having been married for 10 years is an accomplishment – still liking (and loving) each other after all that time even more so!”
Yes that’s right – Kitty and Stu’s wedding, or more specifically the bride’s dress, was inspired by the November Rain music video. They had lots of other musical influences throughout the day too.
“We wanted music to be a huge part of our day, and for it to be as chilled out as possible”, said the bride. “We opted to ditch the traditional three course meal and instead served fish n chips and burgers and fries. My dress was inspired by the Guns n Roses November Rain video and we had a friend’s cover band play in the evening. We also spent weeks working on our wedding playlist.”
Lauren and Erik’s anniversary shoot is so damn cute, I just couldn’t resist featuring it even though they’re already married and know you all usually prefer to see actual weddings!
I’m pretty sure you’ll all make an exception for this one though! Pin up babet Lauren looks so elegant with her fiery red hair and epic blue dress. Plus, of course, the location is to die for! Take me to the beach immediately!
Spanish-born Vero and Agus had been living in London for five years before their wedding so they wanted to bring a bit of ‘Britishness’ into their wedding back home. They chose their venue, Jardín Müller in Granada, because it reminded them of the gardens in the UK.
“Our wedding theme was shabby chic”, said the bride, “and I got a lot of ideas from wedding blogs. I wanted the wedding to be a celebration with family and friends.”
“On the day, everything was perfect. Time flew from the morning to the night. There were so many unique moments: the time I spent with my sister in the hotel, the arrival to the gardens, that moment when Agus saw me, our proud and happy parents, the excitement, the happiness, the tears… It was a magical day.”
No that isn’t a typo – Lucy and Adam really did only spend £500 on their wedding and they planned the entire thing in a week! With some super clever ideas (and a mother who used to be a professional photographer doing their photos as a gift) the wedding turned out just as beautifully as one with a budget ten times the size.
“Our wedding was a country, simple, naturalistic wedding with lots of pastel shades”, said Lucy. “We were inspired by who we are as a couple and family. We’re not ‘big white wedding’ types so we kept things small. We planned the wedding quickly because my brother, who I hadn’t seen in six years, was coming to stay from America and Adam had just accepted a job offer 250 miles away so we were temporarily moving away from home for a few years. We’d contemplated having a simple registry office wedding for a while because we wanted something small and easy. We didn’t want to spend months of stressful and expensive planning, nor did we want a big wedding. All we wanted was our close family, a beautiful outside venue and a whole lot of love.”
If there’s one thing I know for certain it’s that the brides (and grooms!) that read this blog sure do love colourful weddings. Which is why I’m convinced you’re all going to flip out over this adorable retro inspired wedding shoot. Submitted by Zoe (The Little Vintage Car Co.), Aneta (BrightSide Photography) and Lizzy (The Flower Story), this shoot was set up so they could flex their creative muscles and create something fun!
“The theme for the shoot was ’Head in the clouds’ a name inspired by our model’s stunning turquoise hair and our fluffy cloud installation”, they explained. “The aim of this shoot was to mix the elegance and style of a 1950s wedding with a big and bold jewelled tone colour scheme. We didn’t want to recreate a wedding from the 1950s, but wanted a fresh take on a traditional vintage theme.”
