Engracia & Andy got married in Flagstaff, US but had their wedding portraits taken in Marrakech by Andreas Holm.
“We both love to travel, but didn’t want the hassle of figuring out the paperwork for getting married outside of the United States,” they told me. “So instead we had a very small ceremony with our closest friends and family in our home town right before we took off to celebrate, just the two of us, in Marrakesh.”
“Even though we didn’t get married in Morocco we still wanted our wedding photos to be taken there… I was dead set on having wedding photos on a camel in the desert. It was the perfect location for our wedding/honeymoon…it’s exotic, romantic and the vibrant colours and people made a perfectly contrasting backdrop for our wedding photos – even though it was raining.”
“I have two main inspirations,” began newlywed Sabrina. “The late, great Bettie Page for one. I am a huge fan and have always looked up to and admired her as a person as well as of course her work as a model. I love her adorable bangs and have been wearing the “Bettie” bangs ever since I discovered her. Also, Audrey Hepburn has been very influential. I was actually named after her character in “Sabrina” the movie. She is absolutely gorgeous and has a love for fashion not to mention an all around classy gal!”
I couldn’t help but ask photographer Jessica Vallecorsa if I could share Sabrina & Kenny’s wedding day shoot when I found it online. Cute, tattooed bride + fairground + awesome wall. Love!
“David, an Aussie living in London, met Norwegian Ingrid on a trip to Norway through friends” photographer Ed began. “They hit it off straight away and had a long distance relationship for a while until Ingrid decided to move over to London. They both share a passion for music. Dave is a guitarist and music director and Ingrid is still studying, but sings. One thing led to another and they got married in July 2008 in Ingrid’s home town Stavanger, in Norway. It was a fantastic wedding with people from London, Norway and Australia. However, one thing went badly wrong… their photographer lost their entire set of photos (their photographer was not me by the way!) due to a hard disk issue. Ingrid was naturally devastated!”
“This summer Ingrid finally got round to bringing her dress over from Norway to London and asked me if I could redo some wedding photos for them… In Norway it is tradition to send guests a thank you card with a photo of the day – Ingrid has been waiting to get some photos done before she can do this!”
This beautiful vintage shoot should certainly send some always needed inspiration your way! Set up by new UK photographers Horse & Carriage, they explain:
“Our creative goal is to take ordinary couples and place them into fun, exciting, high-concept, themed shoots —as chosen by them, in consultation with us. If a bride has always wanted to look like Greta Garbo in 30’s Hollywood, then we will sit down and work out exactly how to make that a reality for her. If the couples’ vision is punk, vintage, or couture we will work with them to realise this on their wedding day. We’re not restricting ourselves to a single theme, although we do have one unmovable ethos: we want to create images that our couples will fall in love with”
Oh holy beautiful imagery! Kristen & Steven are flippin’ gorgeous and Kristen’s Mum made her dress! Can you believe that? I just totally love this location too. Is the grass actually greener in America? They really do look like their floating around this field.
David & Julie-Anne’s wedding shoot was a total reflection on who they are as a couple. Everything they chose to wear had special meaning to them and was sentimental and personal. “We didn’t want the usual stresses of a modern day wedding to take away from the love and happiness of our day, so we chose to keep it simple, fun and comfortable” they explained.
Julie-Anne wore an original German 1950’s ivory capture lace and satin dress which was the heirloom of a family friend. With this she wore a vintage burgundy & black English worsted & wool tapestry coat with fur collar, ‘Papucchi’ flats and a small burgundy hat with rose detail and black netting.
