I’ve got a bonus post for you today, simply because I couldn’t help myself and wanted to blog this right away! Amanda and Walé got married in Cornwall, Polhawn Fort to be specific which overlooks a dramatic bay. Amanda wore a completely gorgeous bright blue Roland Mouret dress with pewter Jimmy Choo wedges (swoon.) The bouquet was a structural arrangement of Calla lilies and she clipped some pretty little butterflies from Urban Outfitters in her hair. Her ring was the ‘crystal haze’ ring by Stephen Webster and Wale’s ring was from Sarah Sheridan.
This could quite possibly be the most emotionally charged ceremony I’ve ever seen! So. Much. Love. The intimate wedding (only 15 guests) took place at The Kings Road Registry Office and was followed by some good old fashioned English fish n’ chips. Quite apart from all this awesome, the couple, Fox & Cassie, are actually very cool themselves. Fox has made a record, written a book and played at Glastonbury and he was desperate to get married at the same venue as his hero Mick Jagger.
When I featured Nadia & Damien’s London engagement session back in January I just knew their wedding would be a beaut’ and these images sent over by the lovely Eliza Claire certainly haven’t disappointed.
The pair got married at The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which proved a pictureqesue venue with dramatic ‘high rocks’ outside. These acted as the perfect backdrop for some stunning portraits. Nadia looked every bit the glamorous bride in her Stephanie Allin dress which not only has a belt and lace over-lay but had pockets. Yes! stylish and quirky!
I’ve been invited to the Luella’s Boudoir bridal event this evening (as a VIP – ha? moi? hilarious!) so what better way to stat the day then will a Rock n Roll boudoir sesh…plus combine that with Annie’s awesome Wild Fox ‘my boyfriend’s a vampire’ tee (which, I might add, I’ve lusted over for a while!) and you’ve got a match made in Rock n Roll heaven!
I’m so lucky that I get to feature some of the craziest, most alternative and tattoo-gorgeous weddings out there. It’s one of the biggest pleasures of my job! However, occasionally a wedding that may not be the most ‘Rock n Roll’ will hit me between the eyes and give me just as much joy. Tanya & Christan’s Boat Club ‘Love Boat’ wedding at Molesey Boat Club on the Thames has such a simple, love-filled emotion that I couldn’t help but feature.
No joke, I’ve been looking forward to seeing this wedding for weeks. I met up with photographer Emma Case a little while ago when she was down in London and as we wondered around Topshop (obviously the first place one might head when in central London!) she was eager to tell me all about this amazing wedding she’d just shot. It sounded phenomenal then and it’s even more awesome when I’ve put these images to the story.
“Liz & Steve were married in Worthing at the Worthing Dome” photographer Emma told me, “which has the most amazing art deco cinema on the ground floor and a gorgeous sun room with a balcony on the first floor where they hold civil ceremonies and the reception. Opposite to this scrummy building was the beautiful beach and Worthing Pier…. errr… wow. Liz wore a jaw dropping fishtail dress with a cute faux fur shrug, a cute pearl necklace and a birdcage veil… ahh man this photographer was so in her element! Oh and her shoes! Bright red!… yummy, yummy, yum, yum. Steve also looked pretty dapper in a cool navy suit teamed with a purple tie and matching purple thistle boutonniere.”
