Vanessa & Matthew had a personal and private retro rockabilly ceremony on the 4th September. Vanessa was 4 months pregnant on their ceremony day but her Dolly Couture dress compliments her mini bump perfectly. Unusually however the couple held off having their reception until October and so I have been waiting since September to share the full set!
A change of plans didn’t seem to hinder Amanda & Jim’s vintage Vegas photo shoot. They originally planned to have their shoot at the Neon Graveyard (where the old Vegas neon signs go to retire) but due to construction work they had to rethink their ideas. Instead they opted for a whistle-stop tour of the city, stopping at many of the historic, iconic and hilarious (silly sunglasses stand!) sites to take some snaps.
I’m pretty sure none of the adjectives flying around my head as I look at these images can do justice to this ridiculously, spectacularly, awesomely, fantastically, edgy and wicked shoot!
Alma & David got married in New Orleans and had a cowboys & indians style wedding! The pair actually acted as models in a workshop for 25 photographers who want to learn new techniques and to photograph a couple as cool as they are.
Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
“It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it. It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history. It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”
When one of my favourite photographers, Matt Miller, joined on of my favourite photographic teams, Our Labor of Love, I just knew it’d be a match made in heaven – even more so now because they only went and shot his wedding! Matt and his new wife Danielle are the epitomization of what Rock n Roll Bride stands for – kick ass, rock n roll and individuality in weddings!
I am so excited to share their wedding and bring you the full report on the day soon but to whet your appetite, I couldn’t resist a little preview in the form of their Smilebooth. There is almost just too much tattoo awesomeness on show here. Oh yeah baby this is gonna be gooooooooood!
This tattooed, converse bride and Doctor Who geek groom had a fabulous Halloween wedding in Southhampton, UK. The 1970’s inspired spiderweb bridesmaid dresses, the carousel, the Cadillac and the haunted house themed reception all made for a wedding to remember!
