Photo Noir

Non-wedding, wedding inspiration can be just as inspiring as the bog standard stuff. For example, the ideas behind this fabulous ‘film noir’ style photo shoot by Emily Porter, could easily be transferred to an absolutely amazing engagement shoot, or even a wedding theme.
Keep the non-wedding submissions coming (no maternity shoots though please, I still can’t being myself to start posting baby-related stuff sorry hehe!)

Dress Up Fun

Did you ever hear
Of the frolic fairies dear?
They’re a blessed little race,
Peeping up in fancy’s face,
In the valley, on the hill,
By the fountain and the rill;
Laughing out between the leaves
That the loving summer weaves.

I am really enjoying posting non-wedding specific inspiration right now.  You can get wedding ideas from anywhere and everywhere.  Although this shoot is not wedding related, wouldn’t it be amazing to have a photo shoot like this of you and your partner (or your Bridesmaids!)
A little bit gloomy,  little bit gothic… a lot fun, sultry and stylish! These make me want to go play in a forest, dress up in tutu’s and cause some general mischief.

This gorgeous and dramatic photo shoot really caught my eye. Obviously the photography is amazing (goes without saying really) but the whole team made for this beautiful, edgy result.

British Vogue

So I was flicking through last months issue of British Vogue at work today and I came across this photo shoot. I am so pleased I was able to find these scans online as I know you’re going to adore them as much I do. These are kinda bridal but with a edgy fashion aesthetic. Hold onto your knickers girls, some seriously fabulous fashion inspiration a-coming your way!

The NOT Wedding – Results Time

As a general rule, I tend not to promote random bridal events. My personal feeling is, that if you want to go to a bridal show/sale/event you are more than capable of searching these out yourselves.  However The NOT Wedding is one bridal affair I make an exception for. Not only is the concept truly unique, but by using the awesome Our Labor Of Love to photograph the show, the results really have provided some fabulous inspiration I’m sure all you guys can enjoy. The idea behind the event was to hold a wedding show that showcased some of Atlanta’s best vendors by setting up 5 fabulous fake weddings – formal, betsey (funky and hip), California, picnic and palm beach.
