Alison’s Alice in Wonderland Trash the Dress

“My inspiration for this shoot came from the bride her name is Alison and she has a pet bunny as well as a cupcake tattoo on her wrist,” photographer Tab McCausland told me. “So when I started to plan doing my first trash the dress photography class I didn’t want it to be just a boring setting.  Sooooo we went all out cake, hats, tea pots, a little tuxedo for the bunny, little caterpillar, table set up the works!  I think the theme was perfect for the bride and since she had pink and purple hair already it just all came together nicely.”

…And so the idea for an Alice in Wonderland themed trash the dress was born. Although this theme is really popular with brides at the moment (even a year after the movie…can you believe it’s been a year already!?) what I love about this adaptation is the fact that it was based around what the bride loved the most…and of course the bunny rabbit, who could resist him?

“Let Them Eat Cake” – A Marie Antoinette Inspiration Shoot

Ever since my shoot in Paris I’ve had a bit of a ‘thing’ for anything Marie Antoinette – the fashion, the hair, the make up – it pretty much makes me go all giddy inside. So when this shoot landed on my desk last week I didn’t hesitate to email photographer Beth right back to say yes to sharing them as soon a possible.

The colour palette is more or less what my dreams look like…and those cakes…and the jewellery….oh and the flowers…. well divine doesn’t quite cover it does it?

Enjoy!

A Woodland Bridal Shoot

This morning’s shoot was set up by photographers We Heart Pictures to showcase the types of brides they want to shoot. “Hector and I fly to Jersey often for client meetings as we shoot weddings in the Channel Islands,” photographer Charlie told me. “I took the opportunity to make the most of our trip and the stunning location and heckled people into getting up at 8am on Easter Sunday to join us in St Catherine’s Woods.”

“We wanted it to be fun so packed a picnic, chandelier, flags, bunting, balloons, bubbles, masks, several meters of fabric and threw in a couple of wedding dresses as you do!”

A Country Barn Glam Styled Shoot

“Always in search of new ideas and cool, unique locations with a story, I was thrilled to explore one of the very last working farms in Chelsea, Quebec, Canada for my inspiration shoot,” writes photographer Anne-Marie Bouchard. “I wanted character and grit for a session that would showcase something a bit different with an edge to inspire the modern Rock n Roll Bride. The work horses were a perfect fit to the true natural, rustic feel and a tattooed bride in a soft flowing Vera Wang gown with wild dark flowers just felt so right, opposites do attract after all!”

I adore this shoot. The simple, clean lines of the cake, mixed with the texture of the dress and the gritty setting are just perfect – both edgy and elegant. The flowers on the cake are all handmade sugar flower hydrangeas and anemones and the black bow on the cake was inspired by Vera Wang‘s 2011 Spring line, from which the dress was taken. It all ties together beautifully.

A Nashville Rockstar Styled Shoot

“It’s well known that Nashville’s cup runneth over with amazing musicians, songwriters, and performers,” wrote Kate of  Wedding 101, a wedding planning studio located in The Factory at Franklin. “We wanted to pay homage to a classic rockstar wedding. Our inspiration for this shoot, captured by the oh-so-talented Joe Hendricks Photography, began with a Flowers That Rock bouquet, made entirely of guitar picks and strings.”

The model for this shoot was Laura Veltz a singer/songwriter from Nashville. The rockstar theme is an obvious one, and works so well because every member of the team brought a unique piece of themselves and their business to create one overall cohesive look. The results are genuinely Rock n Roll!

From the beautiful dress to the vinyl record inspired invitations, and from the customized drumstick favours and the last minute addition of the jewel encrusted bouquet, it all works so well!
