Excuse me one second while I scream “EEEEEEEK!” at the top of my lungs, because that’s exactly how I felt when I first saw Laura & Harry’s eco-friendly, vintage-heavy, Rock n Roll inspired backyard wedding. Oh yes, I really do love to feature true Rock n Roll Bride weddings – ie weddings of those that I was able to help and inspire with my little blog. Laura & Harry actually found their fabulous photographer Rosie Parsons and Laura’s gorgeous vintage Fur Coat No Knickers dress after seeing them on the site. Yey!
The vintage theme was infused with A Midsummer’s Nights Dream/literary vibe. The ceremony was held outdoors and all the guests sat on benches in Laura’s Dad’s back garden in Devon. As part of the ceremony, Laura and Harry also planted a tree in the garden and invited all their guests to fill it in with earth which will give them a lasting memory for the two of them every time they visit Laura’s Dad.
I’ve got a really superficial Sunday Kind of Lovin’ for you today but what the hey?! I really just wanted to share some photos and fun times from my night out last week with the awesome Emma Case, David McNeil and my Butler & Wilson sparkly skull tiara. We needed a gossip, we needed a catch up and we needed a (few) cocktails!
I haven’t laughed so much in ages!
We ended up in a club that was having a drag queen night – oh the hilarity! I’m not going to share the photos of what was going on on stage though eeek!
Today I wanted to introduce you to a Yvette Craig Photography, a photographer from Kent, who loves to travel (and would love to travel to capture your wedding!) and who has a very classic, elegant and almost fine art style.
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Yvette Craig and I am a wedding and portrait photographer, and my aim is to capture you in a classical, timeless style.
Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?
I am based in Kent, however I cover weddings anywhere in the World! In 2007 I photographed a wedding in Cuba, then in 2008 I was booked by a Canadian couple who could not find what they were looking for locally and therefore booked me to photograph their wedding in Stratford, Ontario and then this year (2010) I photographed a wedding in Dominican Republic. I have also just been booked to photograph a wedding in Brisbane Australia in 2011. I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK also and this year I have weddings in Nottinghamshire, Hampshire as well as the home counties.
Aleksandra’s shoot was inspired by the 1960’s modelling icon Twiggy. Don’t you just adore it!?
Nick & Hannah had a 3 day wedding at Christian retreat and conference centre Lee Abbey. The celebrations started with a day of fun activities for all their guests including archery, mountain boarding and zip wiring through the forest. Not only that, but all their guests were invited to wear fancy dress. That sure made for lots of laughs and some awesome photographs. The couple made an extra special effort, coming as Robin Hood and Maid Marion. Hannah had even worn her Grandmother’s own wedding dress in memory of her.
Alex & Lisa met 13 years and discovered a mutual love of music, books & film “We met nearly 13 years ago and the one thing that brought us together was music. He was wearing a t shirt of my favourite band and I fell for him” Lisa told me. “When we started dating we would wander around London checking out music shops, flicking through CD and vinyl to add to our collections and then head to a local cinema to catch a film. We probably spent more time in the records shops in Soho and a cinema than anywhere else. Many of those films we saw are now our favourite films and we probably know them inside out. I read books like there is no tomorrow and Alex is slowly coming round to that after having spent a lifetime reading comics and graphic novels. I bake cakes every weekend and while I enjoy making them, Alex enjoys eating them so when we are out I always take him to a cake shop so we can have a treat. I am also the official photographer in our relationship and I have the cameras and stacks of photo’s to prove it. Alex helped me buy my first SLR and he sat in front of the camera on many occasion to help me with college projects”
After reading this do you see anything more perfect for these two than the engagement session below? I love it!
