A Dress of Blue & Jimmy Choo

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.

Skate Park Bridal

On a cold November Sunday morning a recent bride and her photographer headed down to a skate park for a bridal shoot complete with skateboarders, boys on bikes and a big dog (eek!) She wore her wedding dress which was by Donatella and two different pairs of shoes (no,  not at the same time) which were both from Next. I am particularly loving the bright blue pair which were from their Runway Collection.

For the Love of Bettie Paige

Toni & Richard had a gothic/burlesque inspired wedding at Prested Hall in Colchester in March of this year. “Our inspiration mainly comes from my admiration of burlesque and my unnerving love of Bettie Paige (who I have recently had tattooed on me)” Toni told me. “Not being much of a girly girl and never one who ‘dreamt of their big day’, I didn’t actually know where to start after the proposal. I like wearing jeans, having a Mohawk and being covered in tattoos and wearing too much make up!”

Mick Jagger, Glastonbury & English Fish ‘n Chips

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.

High Rocks

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!

A Little Bit of Rock n Roll Magic

I’ve got another Luella’s Boudoir-related post for you now (can to tell I’m excited about tonight?!) Becci & Mark’s wedding is a pretty special one, for more reason than one. Not only did the pair find their photographer David McNeil through Rock n Roll Bride, but Becci also found and discovered the amazing vintage jewellery experts, Magpie Vintage. Who wouldn’t fall in love with their amazing designs after all!? As a DIY bride (Becci’s made her own dress from an original 1930’s pattern as well as her flowers and all the decor and details for their wedding) unfortunately the jewellery pieces she fell in love with were slightly out of her price range. However with a little bit of Rock n Roll Bride magic I was able to pull a few strings for her and the lovely ladies at Magpie Vintage were kind enough to lend her the gorgeous headband and necklace you see her wearing! How amazing is that?!
