After seeing Emma & James’ funky engagement session I couldn’t wait to see the wedding and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Emma dress was a 1930’s inspired design that was handmade for her in champagne crepe backed satin by ‘Rags to Bitches’ which is a vintage boutique on Tib Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester. She teamed this will gorgeous peach, sequinned shoes from Karen Millen and a gorgeous vintage style headband which was made from glass beads and pearls from a bridal shop in Poynton, Cheshire called Timeless Bride.
Pink hair? Check! White dress with a black sash? Check! Amazing half sleeve tattoo? – Well not quite but I’m getting there soon… Methinks the gorgeous Miss Lily Blackout and myself could actually be the same person on different sides of the globe. She bought her dress from David’s Bridal but customised it herself to make it more ‘her’.
Sarah Kate & John got married in Vegas with only their closest two friends as witnesses. They were hitched in a 50’s diner by Elvis and rounded off they day at The Venetian Hotel and with a ride on the gondola.
A few weeks later the pair held a intimate and gorgeous wedding at Camellia Gardens in Caringbah in the south of Sydney for their immediate family and 10 of their closest friends. Sarah Kate wore a black dress from Bridal Collections Erina, leopard print shoes from Leg Avenue Shoes and amazing limited edition cupcake earrings (there were only 100 pairs made) from Omerica Organic.
The bridesmaids wore hot red dresses imported from The States and boys were allowed to wear whatever they liked because John didn’t feel right making them wear anything specific – they just left it up to them to do their own thing!
Aren’t these wonderful? What a gorgeous couple and wedding party! I am smitten…
You are going to explode with excitement over this incredible bridal shoot…I did! Just brace yourselves for some serious awesome.
The shoot was put together by Denver based This Modern Life Photo to inspire brides to think outside the box with their bridal shoots…and boy have they done that!? The team were keen to tell me all about their vision:
“Brides, we can create a custom styled shoot like this one for you and your fiance or husband either before or after the wedding using the same creative team. Not into Rock and Roll styling? Not a problem. Our team will work with you to create your very own vision, romantic and dreamy?, vintagey and funky?, rustic natural? Whatever your heart desires, this creative team can create!”

In my Photo Pro article this month I had the opportunity to write about one of the best known and most loved collaborations in blog land. Our Labor of Love have probably been featured on every blog out there and when you see the stellar work of Whitney, Jesse, Micheal, Max, Matt and co. it’s pretty damn easy to see why. Matt’s own wedding to Danielle was so popular when I featured it (part one and two can be seen here) and is such a perfect Rock n Roll wedding that it was an easy decision for me when deciding which of their weddings to feature. Enjoy!
