Anna & Simon actually had two days to shoot their engagements with friend and photographer Steve Gerrard. They hit two locations which gave both sets a completely different look. First up was the quaint English town of Stratford-Upon-Avon (random fact of the day – where Shakesphere was born) and the second at The Custard Factory in Birmingham. I can’t help but particularly love the night time/painting with light shots though – v. cool!
Oh how lucky we are – two UK weddings in one day! I’m hoping this means that Blighty (thats’ slang from Britian for all my America readers) may be catching up to our American cousins slowly but surely on the old rock n roll weddings front.
When reader Kate sent me a sneak peak of her wedding a few month’s ago I knew it would be perfect Rock n Roll Bride material – especially after I laid eyes on her country garden style Candy Anthony dress (which perfectly matched their flower choices) and Christian Louboutin shoes (a steal and brilliant find from Ebay!)
UK based photographer Jodie Chapman sent me over this darling vintage wedding full to bursting with British loveliness. Isn’t there just something about a British wedding? We may not have quite caught up with America on the ‘cool’ stakes but the cute, quirky side of our little isle is something that always puts a smile on my face.
I really do love sharing weddings from the UK. Southampton based Az sent me Julia & Simon’s quintessentially vintage English wedding and I just love it. The personal touches like the individually personalised beer bottles and the vintage finds such as the tea sets which the couple spent months scouring charity shops for all made their day perfect.
