Fun, Casual & Romantic

Will & Myriam’s ceremony took place at Pencarrow House in Cornwall and then it was all back to the parent’s house for food and drink! “There’s not much to tell” Will began “We did everything the way we did because we had known we wanted to be husband and wife for ages, so it was more a question of getting the day out of the way! We didn’t want to make a fuss about the day, or do anything cheesy, we just wanted it to be ‘a fun and casual get-together with romantic bits’ and we had an ultra-minimal budget”

Myriam wore a dress from Monsoon, Will’s bespoke suit was found at Ferguson Nash in Warwick and their hilarious tee-shirts were from the aptly named Fuckuall.

British Boudoir

This fabulous Boudoir/Pin up style shoot was set up by British photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox.
“My Make up artist is fabulous at creating that seductive, lashtastic pin up look” She told me “She also styled the models hair and I loved how the retro bouncy curls turned out. Accessories are all mine and are mostly props from the studio. The STUNNING blue Manolo Blahnik shoes are actually my ‘something blue’ from my own wedding day. All in all it was a really fun day full of bucks fizz, pearls, blue shoes and vogue magazine!! A perfect way to spend a Sunday in my opinion. “
 

A Wedding on Water

Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.

Under the Spotlight – Toast of Leeds

I really really love doing my Under the Spotlight interviews as it’s great to talk about the genius behind the lens for once. Today, I’m excited to share with you Shelly of Toast of Leeds – a fabulous photographer from – you guessed it – Leeds, who blew me away with her recent Punk Bride shoot. Enjoy!

Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Shelly Mantovani from Toast of Leeds. I shoot people.

Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?
I’m based in Yorkshire but don’t let that put you off! I love to get on a plane or a train, it forces me to read books I keep buying and never get round to finishing.
