What a Small World…

I love a shoot with a great story behind it…especially when it revolves around people I know! When bride-to-be Laura checked in on Rock n Roll Bride a few months ago she fell in love with the work of UK photographer, David McNeil. She promptly contacted him to arrange an engagement shoot in Brighton. Her fiance Nick and her turned up on the morning of the shoot, only to discover that unbeknownst to both of the boys, they already knew each other! David and Nick actually used to work together long before David tried his hand at wedding photography and Nick got engaged…but wait the tale gets stranger because when David sent me these images it turns out I used to work with Nick too! What a small world…

British Boudoir

This fabulous Boudoir/Pin up style shoot was set up by British photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox.
“My Make up artist is fabulous at creating that seductive, lashtastic pin up look” She told me “She also styled the models hair and I loved how the retro bouncy curls turned out. Accessories are all mine and are mostly props from the studio. The STUNNING blue Manolo Blahnik shoes are actually my ‘something blue’ from my own wedding day. All in all it was a really fun day full of bucks fizz, pearls, blue shoes and vogue magazine!! A perfect way to spend a Sunday in my opinion. “
 

A Wedding on Water

Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.

Who Needs a Bride!?

Gay wedding, Civil partnership, Wedding…the terminology doesn’t mean s*** to me. A wedding is a wedding and that’s that. The amazingly glam Brighton wedding of Matt & Leon was sent over by their photographer Lisa Devlin and I lapped up all the gorgeous details…who needs a bride!?

Leon & Matt got married on the anniversary of when they met and they day was a pretty memorable one! They squeezed into a stretch Hummer with their 8 bridesmaids, 3 flowergirls and the ring bearer for the short journey to Stanmer House near Brighton. Their ceremony was conducted by candlelight by a Registrar called Mr Love (!) and featured some incredible live singers.

English Country Garden

Jennifer & Ian’s vintage garden engagement shoot is just so British – I love it! The slightly damp weather, the funky patterned wellies, the wheelbarrow and the greenhouse… I’m very much looking forward to seeing this couple’s vintage themed Scottish wedding in May and I hope photographer Fjona will be sending the images straight over to me afterwards – think VW van, Scottish tablet in jam jars, old fashioned luggage labels and more wellies. It’s going to be awesome I’m sure!
