♥ Halloween is a-coming. Blog land has be full to bursting with spooky inspiration. I’m loving this gothic bride post from Bride Chic, this Mercury Glass and Whimsy inspiration board from Snippet & Ink, Haute Hallowedding ideas from ILoveLolliblog and JoMyGoodness showing us that even Martha Stewart has little bit of goth inside her.

Both beautiful and fun, this wedding was zipped over to me by newbie photographer
Emma Case. I am struggling to believe this is only the second wedding she has ever shot! The Southampton based photographer told me all about Ruth & Dan’s wedding:
Ruth and Dan were married on the 3rd October 2009 at Hartington Hall Youth Hostel in Derbyshire. They hired the whole hostel for the weekend and guests shared traditional style youth hostel rooms with single beds, bunk beds and shared showers!
Marianne Taylor (who shot my pinky, punky princess shoot) just sent me a selection of her most recent engagement sessions and Sam & Adam’s jumped out at me right away. Not only have I got a unhealthy obsession with toy cameras right now (they used a Diana camera as a prop) but the couple are just to damn right funky for words.
ps you have until Sunday 25th October to get your entries in for the
free wedding photography contest - open to all – WORLDWIDE wooooo!
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.
Rock n Roll Bride readers Emma & Ian actually found their photographer Philip Allen
through a post on this humble blog. Phil told me the whole story:
