When She Used To Rock n Roll

Kirsten & Josh’s wedding not only had a fun, retro feel, but they really went all out with their 1950’s diner theme. I am crazy in love with the Brides entire outfit – from her Dorothy ruby slippers to her cute polka dot dress made by her Mother and friend Marnie Rogers, who designs clothes for Wintersun. The gorgeous Bridesmaid had a rockabilly style to them – especially their amazing hairdos!

For the reception, the couple went all out for a 50′s diner theme, where they designed and made everything themselves. The centrepieces were giant lolly jars and each table had a different type of old school lolly, which was the name of the table (“Sweethearts” “Milk bottles” “Ice creams” “Jelly beans” etc) The place cards were black & white candy striped lolly bags with everyone’s names on them, each painstakingly tied with little red ribbons. The placemats were old records that they picked up in an op shop and they had little gifts for everyone on the table – mini erasers in the shape of burgers, fries, hotdogs and donuts, plus vintage metal wind up toys.

Each table also had a diner style spring loaded napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers and tomato and mustard bottles. Then best of all, for dinner they served burgers, hotdogs, pizza and fries. I bet their guests were thrilled – no boring wedding food for them!

The celebrations continued into the night with the couple having their first dance to ‘I remember the Bride when she used to Rock n Roll’ by the Stray Cats, finishing the night by swaying along to ‘Earth Angel’.

Thanks to the Groom’s Mother Rhonda for sending me this wedding and to the couple for putting together all the awesome info for you all.

Sah-weeeeeet!

Billy & Rachel’s wedding is sweet (as in sah-weet!) and reason numero uno has got to be Billy and his boys + their awesome H&M attire, closely followed by their tattoos (one of them has a tat that says ‘rock n roll’ for crying out loud!) Quite apart from their killer Groom styling, they all look like they had an absolutle blast and I love that…

The Wedding Tree

I am so over the moon to be the first blog to bring you this amazing wedding. Paul & Cassie’s day really couldn’t be anywhere but Rock n Roll Bride though surely? From her cute cute dress by Carla Zampatti, to their kick ass tattoos – from the simply sweet ceremony site (just plastic chairs and autumnal leaves) to all the adorable personal touches (I am crazy in love with their thumb print wedding tree ‘guest book’.) There is in fact nothing I don’t love and I could go on with a big old list of everything I am swooning over right now. However it’s probably better for me just to share the photographic joy oui?

Shoes:  Witchery
Cake:  The Welsh Lady
Cupcakes:  Carousels
Decoration info: 
The wall/window decals, the owl figurines, Cassie’s hair flower, the paper forest animal masks, the noodle box tags, the clay “love” & “forever” tags on bottles all came from Etsy 
The mexican day of the dead dolls were found on Ebay.
The white lanterns and fairy light halo were from the glorious Ikea.
For the Vintage bottles, milk bottles, medicinal bottles the couple scouted Paddington Antique Markets.
All the pinecones, leaves and tree branches were collected from neighbourhood walks.
The Candy Buffet was a DIY job, the couple collected misc vases/jars & purchased the candy, lots of candy.

McMarried

Do you remember Jen & Grant’s McEngagements? Well the couple went and got married and there was no Mcdonalds in sight.

Jen & Grant cleverly integrated the color blue as a tribute to grant’s favorite team duke as well as tying in a playstation theme (see cufflinks below), and left plenty of room for her obsession with skulls. the hampshire house wedding venue was transformed for jen and grant’s dream wedding. for the ceremony, grant’s best man served as the officiant by becoming a JP for a day, by getting his one-day marriage designation in the state of massachusetts. they had one of the coolest sets of bridesmaids and groomsmen i’ve worked with. after the ceremony, the newlyweds allocated a bit of extra time beyond traditional formal photographs to allow for some creative portraits walking around downtown boston in the boston public garden and an MBTA subway station. at the reception, DJ addam bomb provided music that had everyone on the dancefloor, including jen’s 86 year old grandfather rocking out to billy idol’s “white wedding.” if you are having a boston wedding and are looking for a DJ that can throw down great alternative music, yet still has a tasteful demeanor, this is your guy.

Thanks to photographer, Heather Parker for sharing this cool blue wedding!

Joy.

I have a lot of love for these images. The mish-mash of Vera Wang, flower covered modern invitations, blood red florals, croque en bouche (cake!) and the music makes me a rather happy girlie

Mucho gracias to photographer Lisa for sending this little bit of joy to my inbox today.
