My friend David McNeil took a trip to Brighton with TV Presenter Jules who needed some new shots for her portfolio. Poles apart from the usual boring head shots, David and Jules went from cute and sweet to full on vamp within a matter of shots which created some really amazing results. As soon as I saw these I know I’d have to share, these could be straight out of a Vogue fashion shoot no problem!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this important news flash…Bristol photographer Rosie Parsons has just shot one of the most gorgeously vintage style weddings right here in England. Oh yes, England rules the vintage roost today dear friends.
The couple hired a house for the occasion, Treowen in Monmouthshire and the beautiful vintage styling and crockery was supplied by Clara Bows aka Vicky Vale, the Bride! Don’t you just love the quirky 1920′s fashion everyone is sporting?..oh the swoon…

My love for this wedding is three-fold. It’s in the UK, Amalia’s Temperley London dress is so damn gorgeous and unique and Simon proposed with a tomato skin (!) which he then had gold plated for Amalia to wear around her wrist.

In many ways the UK is a very forward thinking, literal place to live. Gay marriage is legal, you can drink at 18 and not attending church every Sunday is generally not frowned upon. However when it comes to wedding legalities, Britain can be a little strict on the rules. You can’t, for example, legally marry outdoors. You are only able to wed at an officially consecrated place with an officially appointed person officiating the ceremony. However Lucy and J’s dream was to have an outdoor humanist ceremony at Oxon Hoath in Kent, so despite the English weather and the English laws, they did just that (they did of course have to do the legal thing as well.)
I am loving the following details about this wedding – Lucy’s dress and shrug combo was from Joanne Fleming Design in Brighton, UK and their completely unique rings were designed and made by the couple themselves. Lucy’s gorgeous bouquet was from Darling and Wild with the rest of the flowers all being done themselves who visited Covent Garden wholesale flower market to buy the blooms. Their uber cool twist on the traditional boutonnerie were again made by the couple themselves using white peacock feathers, leaves from the grounds of the venue and old buttons are pretty damn gorgeous though right?
Ahh England, I still love you.

Photographers Craig & Chanelle Segerius-Bruce met Andy & Kim way back in 2007 in Zanzibar, when they (the photographers) were on their own honeymoon. The wedding took place at Parley Manor in Dorset and Kim wore a Benjamin Roberts dress. I am loving the vintage VW cars and that amazing sunset!
However my favourite of all these images, has to be the Jeff Newsom-inspired swirly light shot..mean, moody and very very cool.
I am doing a photo shoot with Chanelle soon..I am very excited about it as the concept we have come up with is quite different to what you might be seeing everywhere else right now…hint: I’m getting all crafty with black tulle!
