Chivalry Isn’t Dead

Whoa what a lot of votes we’ve had for the Tinywater contest winners so far! That is amazing – and only 1 day down!

I held off posting yesterday to give the voting the best chance at the top spot so I now have some catching up to do. Check out this Anglo-American wedding, where the American Groom even did the right thing and asked the Bride’s parents permission to ask for their daughter’s hand in marriage. Cute!

Thanks to Solaria for sharing this wedding.

Style And Silliness

Last post for today… this just landed in my inbox and oooh how pretty and fun these are. Anthea & Andrew started their wedding celebrations with a low key country style rehearsal meal complete with Anthea in a super cute gingham print dress, which lead nicely in to their vintage style wedding day, where Andrea’s personal sense of style took centre stage again. Her beautiful dress was re-created from her Mother’s wedding dress, and who can’t but smile when they see the photographs of the couple with the crazy straw-glasses!?

Jessica, these are fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing!

ps tonight is your last chance to get involved with the Tinywater contest. I have the near-impossible task of choosing only 3 finalists now..eeek it’s going to be really hard! Come back tomorrow to see who I pick, and to vote for your favourites to win!

Genuine Vintage Style

I get super excited when I find weddings like this, and I get even more excited when the couple send me all the juicy details so I can share them with you all.

Sarah & Colin chose some really special details to make their vintage wedding just right. Sarah’s ridiculously beautiful dress was a genuine 1950′s vintage find from a small shop in Lambertville NJ, and her shoes, which perfectly match her dress, were from Anthropologie. Colin wore a J Crew suit with a pocket square that belonged to his Grandfather.

The couple also went DIY crazy, making the invites, the name cards, and the table numbers themselves, Colin said to me “We spent way to much time using one of those round corner cutters! It hurt my fingers” but I think it was definitely worth it, the result is just gorgeousness.  Finally the flowers were put together by generous friend and family helpers, gotta love them!

A huge thank you to Amanda and Carina of Love Me Do Photography for sending me the images, and to Newlyweds Sarah & Colin for sharing their wonderful day with us.

Vintage Reproduction

What’s not to love about this wedding?  Amanda & Clint have been massive fans of vintage 1940′s and 50′s styling for as long as they care to remember, to what’s a better style of wedding for them as this? Amanda’s vintage reproduction dress is perfectly accompanied by her Groom in his traditional kilt (with a decidedly untraditional twist) and her Bridesmaids in their stunning black and red pin up halter style dresses. I am also loving their car, their polka dot themed reception and of course that fabulous cake…my favourite layer has got to be the ‘tattoo design’ layer…just hottness!

Thrifty Gorgeous

Faith & Joe didn’t have much time to plan their wedding, especially as they live in Portland but chose to have the event in California as lots of their friends and family lived here. They also decided to do the whole thing in a super thrifty way. This however, led them to have a truly unique, personal DIY wedding. Friends and family also helped them out wherever they could with her Mum making the cake, the dried flowers for the bouquets, boutonnieres and decorations being donated and Faith getting her gorgeous dress from a thrift store, adding the tulle and brown sash herself and even making her own veil.

This has got to be one of the sweetest and most stylish DIY weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing with you all. Thanks to photographer Shannon Moore for sharing!

ps People! You have until Monday to get your entries in for the Tinywater contest…do it do it!

The Sci-Fi Geek & The Blue Ballerina Shoes

Yep, this is what I love about the weddings I feature - the awesome uniqueness. Sometimes I find it hard not to share the same picture perfect weddings I see popping up all over blog-land and I even have to give myself a little talking to sometimes and tell myself you love little old Rock n Roll Bride for how different the wedding’s that I feature are… right? 
Now Megan & Bob’s wedding’s pretty prettiness goes without saying, but I’m loving that the Groom dressed as Doctor Who and the Bride wore her something blue on her toes. Cute and original..and that bloody rocks.

Kudos to photographer Ashley for sharing the geek chic love

ps you have until Monday to enter the fabulous Tinywater photography contest, so get those entries in – it could be yooou!
