Ashley & Hunter’s wedding had me smitten as soon as I saw it. They went for a fun fair theme with brightly coloured and fun pinwheels, noise makers, rock candy, pumpkins and a BBQ from Buz n Neds Barbeque. This pair both have a self-confessed obsession with shoes so Ashley wore an amazing pair from Betsey Johnson with a Marilyn Monroe portrait on the sole and Hunter wore red, black and white high top Vans that matched their brightly colored wedding…the bridesmaids even wore red pumps to match.
Ashley dress was by Alvina Valenta which she teamed it with an amazing antique brooch which she found at Ant Hill Antiques in Carytown in Richmond, Va. Their flowers were vibrant and sunny to match the theme and the bridesmaids all wore their own purple mis-matched dresses.

♥ This week I was asked by 16 year old writer and blogger Rachel Phipps if I’d be interviewed for her website. Hell to the yes I would! Head over to her site, Waste my Life Pretending, to read the full article. I particularly enjoyed answering the question ‘What’s in your bag right now?’ answer – ‘ a hell lot of crap it would seem!’

“Noel Mason is the man behind award winning Ink Tattoo Studio in Palmerston North, New Zealand and Denise Candy is the woman behind the man behind award winning Ink Tattoo Studio” Photographer Stephen told me.
“I first met Noel a couple of years back when I paid him to put holes in my body. Those holes have long since closed up, but Noel has become a good friend and is the guy responsible for the pretty drawings (kick-ass tattoos) that I wear proudly on my skin.”
“When Noel introduced me to Denise, it was pretty clear he thought he’d won the jackpot. Together, they make a wonderful, crazy couple, and I was honoured when Noel asked me to shoot his missus (with my camera, of course!) on their wedding day.”
“The night before the big day we all scooted over to Levin to see Dave Stevens at Electric Ink Studio for the tattooing of Noel n’ Denise’s wedding rings. Dave tattooed Noel. Noel tattooed Denise, and I winced like a little girl at the sight of the tattoo gun making its mark on their fingers. But the photos were uber cool, and there was definite anticipation in the air for the day to come.”
Dina & Gary’s 1920’s vaudeville carnival themed wedding makes me wanna squeal. I wish wish wish we’d done something as fabulous as this when we got hitched. The wedding took place at Asbury Park, New Jersey and the pair really went to town with their theme – from popcorn and candy for the guests, a sideshow performance, goldfish in bowls… in fact everything you might expect to find at a carnival! Dina wore a custom dress (made by a friend) and wore jewellery and carried a candy bouquet made by another friend Melissa Heid.
It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Rock n Roll Bride favourite Tinywater, but Shay & Jenelle’s sweet and intimate little wedding has changed all that. What a perfect girlie afternoon it must have been.
I’ve got a funny feeling you’re going to go just as crazy about these as I did. Words can not even describe really can they? Danny & Louise’s amazing alternative, British (oh yes this couple is English woooo) wedding was all about the style.
Louise’s stunning latex dress was made by Jane Doe Latex. This part certainly didn’t care about what was ‘expected’ of their wedding, not only are the pair clearly ones to play by the rules (Louise is a piercer and micro-dermal specialist and Danny is a tattooist. They are both heavily modded, both having split tongues, facial tattoos and multiple piercings) but the wedding meal after the ceremony was a trip to MacDonald’s eaten at their house! Their evening reception and buffet was held at at our local rock bar, Sanctuary and was fancy dress, hence the grooms rather fetching nurses outfit!
Seriously guys, put your eyes back in their sockets right now and enjoy!
