I Can’t Help But Love…

I love Oeil Photography and I love this new wedding they just posted. You know me – it’s all about the balloons and who doesn’t love a man in uniform?!Now I know everyone seems to be doing tilt shift right now but I can’t help but adore it too.

Beg n Blog

Woohoo for bonus blogging time (I must put a positive spin on my misfortune/stupidity – see my recent twitter updates if you don’t know what I’m talking about!)

I may be annoyed at myself but at least I get to share all this glorious stuff with you.  As soon as I saw these on Bertie’s blog I knew I had to feature them too, so I emailed Trish begging and pleading to let me share too and she said yes. Hurrah indeed! This dress is absolutely glorious, all the layers and texture are so so amazing – and only $50!? WOW

The weather as been absolutely crazy of late with three seasons in a day, and by the time I was supposed to head out for an afternoon shoot, it was bucketing down…however, we got really lucky. The look and feel for this shoot was planned entirely by Jimmy, I’m guessing with some inspiration from his wife Eve and the gorgeous vintage dress which she scored from Vinnies for $50 (yes, whoa). It was such a perfect dress to photograph with all the textures, volume, and layers. Anyway, this shoot had been planned at an outdoor location but hair and makeup was being done at the make up lady’s house which happened to be the most beautiful, rustic brick and stone terrace with an romantic interior and diffused windows and we were sold. It too, was just perfect for this style of shoot, and so much more appealing than battling the rain.

Thank you thank you Trish, these have brightened my otherwise gloomy day!

Derelict

Are these pure glamour or what? I love to contrast of the Kadie’s ridiculously glamorous dress and Colin’s swanky suit and hat combo alongside the derelict backdrop…

The photographer, Karen, described this couple to me…
Kadie & Colin’s wedding last October was the third wedding I’ve shot for
musicians from Colin’s band, OnceOver.  I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never seen the guys play, but they must be awesome because they all marry incredibly beautiful women!  Kadie is a RN and, ‘hello nurse!’, look at those legs!
They’re just about the most real, down-to-earth couple a photographer could ever hope to work with.

Thanks Karen! Please feel free to send me more more more!

In Loving Memory

I am truly honoured to be allowed to share these gorgeous images with you today. Gia Canali sent me these wonderful photographs of her parents as a tribute to her Father who has recently passed away.

Her parents clearly had some fabulous style on their wedding day (and the wedding day of Gia’s Uncle) and I am just so honoured to share these stunning photographs. Her Mum’s wedding dress and that gorgeous sundress were actually made by her Grandmother too (who took this photograph) how multi-talented!

From Gia…
Those of you who know me well know that I buried my father last week, after he battled leukemia for almost three years.  Now begins the harder project—reassembling my memories of him.  All our photographs are suddenly worth more.  This photograph of my parents on their wedding day hung in their bedroom when I was a child.  I have always, always loved it.

So, here’s to you, Dad.  I’m not sure how I’m going to get through photographing the father-daughter dance for the rest of my life … and I miss you so much

London Charm

There is something about a London wedding that’s like no other anywhere in the world, not even elsewhere in the UK.  I’m not talking about the obvious landmarks or the swanky London hotels, it’s more of a feeling about the place – the lighting, the crispness in the air…the rain!

Agata and Stefan, although not British (she is from Poland, he from Bavaria) did have a quintessential London Wedding – from her dress by British designer Jenny Packham to their transport on a traditional red London bus (supplied by This Bus) to their swanky, intimate reception at Claridges…the whole thing exudes London charm.

Vintage War Time Shoot

I think it’s fair to say that our love of all things vintagey when it comes to wedding will never go away…whether it’s weddings, bridal shoots or trash the dress, vintage styling will always be glamorous, always be chic and always be popular.

So, with no desire to buck this trend (just because something is popular doesn’t mean it can’t be individual too) I’m excited to share this war time-esque photo shoot by South African photographer Kat Forsyth…(it took place at the Johannesburg Museum of Military History)

I’d love to know, what is it about vintage styling that you paricularly love?
