A Wonderland Wedding

Hello my gorgeous girls (and guys!) sorry I didn’t post at all last night but I am feeling rough like sandpaper…I think I’m coming down with something which is highly inconvenient as this weekend is our one year anniversary!How absolutely ridiculous! It has gone so quick!  So similarly, the posts will be slim to none over this weekend as we are off to Brighton to eat fish n chips, go on rollercoasters, walk down the pier and probably get horribly drunk (again!)  We are staying in a super swanky hotel called The Grand which we got for free as an apology from our first wedding venue that cancelled out wedding 3 months before the wedding day (see, things always turn out alright in the end!)

Just before I go, I simply must share this amazing ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed wedding send to me this morning by Adrienne (who blogs over here)  I am absolutely in love with this girl’s style and their super fun, super colourful wedding full of personaltouches and cute little details (seriously the cake made of flowers – amazing!) Enjoy these, and I will see you all when I get back…
Much Love!

Vintage NY Luxe

I have been looking forward to sharing some more of Aga Images’ work with you ever since I featured this amazing diy, eco, backyard wedding that they also photographed.  They are a husband and wife team who’s fine art documentary style is just perfect for such glamourous weddings such as this one. 
I asked Aga if I could feature Adrienne & Vincent’s stunning vintage inspired wedding as sometimes you need a bit of glam right?  As always, I am loving all the personal touches.  The wedding took place at Tribeca Rooftop in NYC, Adrienne’s dress is Audrey Luxe by Vera Wang and her veil was made with vintage lace.  As gifts for their Bridesmaids, the couple gave personally inspired cameos and for transport they used an old NYC taxi.

Loving these – thanks so much Aga!

A Birthday Treat – From Me To You!

I shouldn’t really be all bloggy on my birthday but I just love you all too much…and I love this wedding too much to wait until tomorrow..I have to get it out there right now!

I found this wedding via Offbeat Bride’s Flickr pool (it’s an amazing resource for finding wicked weddings, but I’m assuming most of you already know that!)  Anyway, as soon as I saw this wedding I emailed the Bride, Kelly straight away demanding to be allowed to feature it on here…and she was more than happy for me too…wooohooo!

I’m going to hand right over to Kelly at this point, because in her own words she loves talking about her wedding!
We started planning a very traditional wedding but it never seemed
“right” for us.  So my man gave me full control and said “make it feel
like us”.  I changed the location to New York City (that’s were we
live) and decided the day would be family only.  (Later, we had a
party for friends in New York and both our hometowns)

The day started by taking a black limo to Brooklyn Bridge, to take
pictures.  After that, we headed to the court house, downtown
Manhattan to have the civil ceremony.  Another black limo took all of
the guests to meet us at the court house.  We got married about 1:00
pm on Friday, March 20 in a very short little ceremony.  Then we all
headed to Alice’s Tea Cup on 64th where we had rented a room upstairs.
 It was so darling!!  We had different types of finger sandwiches,
crazy scones, tons of little deserts and unlimited tea.  Our cake was
a one-layered yellow cake with buttercream frosting and the grooms
“cake” was really a red velvet cupcake (his favorite).  My cake topper
was a vintage 1950’s wedding couple.  My favors were vintage tea cups
with little gold bags of loose tea (Wedding Chai) wrapped in pink
tulle and ivory ribbons.  By 7:00 pm, my new husband and I were at the
airport to leave on our honeymoon.  It was a perfect day!

A highlight:  When we stood in front of the court house, right after
the ceremony to take pictures, a NYPD traffic cop took our picture
with her cell phone.  Then she looked at it, smiled and said it was
the best wedding she had ever seen!

Now here is good stuff:

Bride:  Dress, Betsey Johnson
Headpiece, veil, earrings: ReVamp

Shoes and purse: Prada
Make up:  All MAC Cosmetics.  (Lip color:  Alta Moda and All Nighter
Prolong Wear by MAC–I get asked that a lot)
Rings:  Peachtree on Fifth Ave

Maid of Honor:  Dress, Betsey Johnson
Hat, bracelets, earrings:  ReVamp

Shoes: Christian Dior
Make up: All MAC Cosmetics.  (Lip color: Melrose Mood)

Groom:  Suit, Tie: Gucci
Cufflinks: Vintage

Ring:  Heirloom (Great grandfathers’ ring)

Reception, cake and favors:  Alice’s Tea Cup 

Flowers: ReVamp

Thank you for letting me share this with you!  I am very excited that
people liked what I did, because I was getting a bit of flack from
some friends about not being “traditional”.  I only did and wore what
I loved; that is what made my wedding authentic.  I would hope to
inspire other brides to ignore the critics and go with their own sense
of style.

Thanks so much for sharing Kelly.  You all simply must head over here to check out the rest of her ridiculously gorgeous wedding! (and here for her Vintage, Remade, Re-inspired and Occasionally Sparkly etsy shop!)

The Wallpaper Did It For Me

I got a lovely email from Jeremy Lawson thanking me for featuring his super-cool ‘I want to lick your face’ photograph and telling me to feel free to use anymore of his work…so I’m gonna!
I couldn’t choose just one wedding as he seems to be a very lucky photographer indeed and gets a wealth of amazingly cool and rock n roll couples to shoot, therefore stand by for the first post of many – first up Dan and Dwyer.

I picked this wedding for 3 reasons…the gorgeous vintage styling (i.e the way-to0-beautiful Bride + veil + dress + ugg boots!) the old Hollywood feel and that amazing wallpaper! I love it used as a mock-photobooth – awesome, gorgeous, fun!

Ta Daaaa….
