Wai-Ching Bride

Evan & Angela’s wedding was at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC.  They had an intimate event with just 20 or 30 guests within their own bridal penthouse suite with an antique/bird theme. They set up a typewriter to be used a vintage style guest book, birdcages around the room and old-time candy for goodie-bag favours. They are both photographers as well so there were antique cameras scattered about as well as lots of shots taken with Evan’s old Polaroid Land Camera.   Angela’s veil was handmade by an artist in Portland, OR and her dress was designed by local Seattle designer Chrissy Wai-Ching. It’s a pretty damn amazing dress huh?

The Shoot That Almost Never Was

Suzy & Gerard actually got married in 2005 but still wanted a day (years!?) after shoot with the amazingly talented Megan Welker– well who wouldn’t! They almost had a disaster with the dress however as after Suzy got it back from the cleaners she discovered they had taken out all of the puckers making those stunning billowy pleats,OMG cricis!! Luckily they knew a fabulous seamstress who painstakingly put them all back in for the shoot. It almost never happened and that would have been a travesty!

Woodstock Wedding

Oh. My. GOD!

This hippy chic, picnic stylee wedding with a woodstock vibe is nothing short of phenomenal. Finding amazing hidden gems like this has got to be one of my favourite things to do. I feel as though I have unearthed a complete treasure. 

Forget everything you think you know about weddings. This celebration makes all that seem futile. Can you imagine being there? Cramming into a tiny tent, siting on your friends laps or on the floor just to see your best friend’s get married. She’s wearing a stunning vintage gown (which the little girls all clearly adore!) and he’s wearing a fabulously retro velvet suit. And the car…and the swing…and the random panda head…oooh oooh oooooh!

I want to go and run around a field like a child and celebrate the joy of love right now

Authentic Cowboy

Kimberly’s vintage dress (from Timeless Vixen) is adorable for a number of reasons, but I especially love how it is an absolutely perfect match to Anthony’s way too cool authentic vintage cowboy tuxedo and shirt! In fact the whole wedding was based around his very special outfit – who says it’s all about the Bride?

Thanks to the gorgeous Noa for sharing…

We’re The Theme!

Amy & Jody certainly didn’t want a traditional wedding and went all out to show their individuality though their big day. As Amy told me, ‘We never wanted a conventional wedding. We wanted a mishmash of our favourite things and hoped it would all work out. Who needs a theme? We’re the theme!’

The couple had an intimate wedding with close family at Islington town hall which was followed by a massive party at The Distillers Bar. It was the small touches that made this day fabulous – whether that being the ice-cream van (free 99s all round!) the Cuban band or the tower of cupcakes and free flowing drinks that scream of British summer like Pimms.

Amy’s outfit was a vintage-inspired look at high street prices. The tea-length dress was by Aftershock, her adorable shoes were from Clarks and fascinator/veil was found in Topshop!  The bag and jewellery were all real vintage finds and her best friend’s mum made her bolero.

I love Jody’s look so much! Sometimes the Grooms tend to let the team down (here in the UK anyway!) with slightly boring suits or unimaginative fashion choices, but not this Groom! He bought a vintage suit, shirt and cravat from J Simons in Covent Garden. The trainers have got to be my favourite part of his look. When on holiday in Vietnam, he asked a shoe maker to make him a pair of Adidas Hi-Tops out of embroidered silk, not realising the guy would actually agree. Photographer David said he loved having two pairs of gorgeous shoes to shoot!

The couple set aside a lot of time for portraits which was great because David really got to go to town with ideas and locations for the shoot – my personal favourite has got to the the fancy dress shop ones with Jody wearing a horse head! Random yes but I love it!

Thanks to Amy & Jody for sharing their day and to David for sending me the gorgeous images!

Swoon

Oh swoon! This day after session by the wonderful Stacy Able makes my heart go a-flutter. The shoot took place at the Indianapolis Museum of Art which made for a stunning backdrop – I especially adore the ‘LOVE’ statue which apparently was all ‘gross and rusted out’ but it looks fab to me!

Thanks to Stacy for the exclusive and tagging for naming this post on her own blog as Rock n Roll Bride approved!
