Elegant & Dramatic Sapphire Wedding: Rochelle & Nestle

sblue_PVP45

Rochelle & Nestle were married at Transfiguration Chapel of Caleruega in The Philippines. Although their wedding started off traditionally with a church service, the couple wanted the rest of the day to reflect their own styles. So they went for a dramatic but elegant blue colour scheme with touches of yellow. The bride wore blue ballerina shoes which she customised herself, the bridesmaids and flowergirls wore various shade of sapphire and the groom and his groomsmen had blue bow ties.

Rochelle’s email to me was simple. “We would like to thank Rock n Roll Bride because you’ve been a huge inspiration to us. You made us aware of the trends and the things we can do except from the traditional wedding. You helped us push ourselves to do the extremes and make us think that the things we thought could not be done are actually possible.”

Floyd & Maricris were married in Cavite in The Philippines. They met in art school and wanted their wedding to be just as creative as they are. They spent $9000 on the wedding and the majority of the details were DIY.

“Wedding planning wasn’t easy”, began the bride. “We had a very strict budget, and planning such a big wedding with not a lot of money was hard. We didn’t have a stylist or wedding planner but we wanted to do it all ourselves. Our family and friends were fantastic with helping us with the preparations. We had to be creative with our plans but we enjoyed doing it all. We enjoyed spending time together making things.”

Artistic & Wacky Filipino Wedding : Ryan & Garovs

RYAN & GAROVS-1-6

One of the main reasons I love Filipino wedding photographers MangoRed so much is because their wedding photography is quite odd. In fact it’s darn right bizarre. It breaks boundaries that I didn’t even know existed, and it challenges my concept of what wedding photography even is. These images aren’t going to be for everyone. In fact I’d bet my entire sparkly handbag collection that some of you will not like them at all. But I bloody love them and their unapologetic weirdness. I’m inspired, intrigued and totally and utterly confused all at the same time. It’s pretty darn wonderful. And that’s before I even say anything about the actual wedding in the images – fake cotton wool clouds lining the aisle? OH MY GOD YES!

Ryan & Garovs’ wedding took place in Manila, The Phillipines. The ceremony was held at St. Alphonsus Mary de Liguori Parish and the reception at White Space, an event space in the city. “The first thing on our mind was that MangoRed had to shoot our wedding, or else we wouldn’t get married (this is what we actually told them!)” laughed the bride. “We mailed them right after we got engaged, and immediately booked the church and reception venues just so we could seal the deal and book the boys. We just couldn’t imagine our wedding in the hands of any other photographers!”

High Fashion Farm Engagement

Honestly? I’m not going to pretend that I really understand this shoot… but for some reason I just really love it. It must be the weird juxtaposition between designer handbags, shoes on a roof, giant bunnies and bondage… and hell, I’m not adverse to a bit of randomness!

Taking place at Big Ben Farm in Bulacan, The Philippines, Jay De & Clarissa wanted a shoot with some attitude. As lovers of vintage styling they wanted it to have this vibe, but with an edge. They wanted their shoot to be much more than teacups, cupcakes, lace or pearls. They wanted high fashion! With the help of stylist Feliz and photographer Jay Jay they pulled together five iconic looks which showcased various parts of their personalities. Ranging from high fashion to cute and cosy to dark, each set was a real labour of love and very ‘them’.
