Be Inspired III

I have loved hanging out with Emily of Peach & Pearl this week..a huge thank you for all her hard work putting together some fantastico inspiration boards just for us. I hope you have all loved them too!
So for the last time (this week) over to Emily…

For my last board, I imagined an intimate, sit-down dinner with your closest family and friends that could be held just as easily in a loved one’s backyard or the patio of your favourite restaurant.  While not as rock and roll as some celebrations I could have put together, I think this board really reflects what I feel is the heart of Rock ‘n Roll Bride – not bowing to wedding convention, but truly having the wedding that best reflects you as a pair and your relationship.  Keep things simple and handmade with potted herb favours, a hosta and lady slipper bouquet, breadstick and olive oil centrepieces, pigs in a blanket at the cocktail hour, and a short, sassy dress for the bride.

Thank you again, so much, for having me this week, and to Kat for inviting me on to her lovely blog!  If you’d like to see more boards and other style + design + wedding musings, I’m over at Peach & Pearl.  I also design custom inspiration boards through my Etsy shop, and would be delighted to work with you to put one together.  If you’re interested, you can see the details here and purchase here.

Crazy In Love (With These)

Oh how I love Amelia Lyon..she gives us such gorgeous images as these.

This wedding is quite simply stunning! (seriously someone buy me a thesaurus for my birthday.)
Need more of these in your life?

And that ring shot? So different to all the ring shots you see around, and yet sooo beautiful!

Victoriana

Check out the amazingly dark, gothic-chic wedding of Good Charlotte guitarist, Billy Martin.  I not only am a little bit crazy about the Bride’s dress, designed by Kirstie Kelly Couture, but the amazing vintage victoriana decor is actually sending me into a whirl of girlie excitement.

Will Make You Drool…

Sorry for my lack of usual over-posting over the last few days, I have been super busy with sorting out the contest winners..I now have a backlog of amazing stuff to share so just bear with me!

First up, I was sent these gorgeous images by Brittany of BKB Photography, and I immediately fell in love with this crazy gorgeous centrepieces! Aren’t they just fabulous? I wish we had trees on our tables! hehe
The Bride’s stunning (don’t I use that word a lot..I feel it is time to invest in a thesaurus) dress was by Vera Wang, as is her custom hair piece.

Love love love them…

Be Inspired II

I am super excited today as not only have I got a plethora of amazing stuff to share with you in the next few days but myself and David have decided the winners of the free wedding photography contest! I will be announcing the winners on here as soon as I have told them!

I really loved featuring Emily’s first inspiration board on Monday and it seemed you guys did too..so hold on to your hats, here comes round two..

 

Hello again!  Today’s board was inspired by the tattooed bride in the top left corner – I love the juxtaposition between her tattoo and her pearls, and tried to strike the same balance in my board.  This wedding is elegant and restrained, vintage and at the same time sort of modern, I think.  Try a fabulously feathered headband for the bride, a dark suit and skinny tie for the groom, unexpectedly mod calligraphy on envelopes, and spiky echinacea in square mirrored boxes as centerpieces.  A classic car borrowed from a friend or auto club is a stylish – and inexpensive! – getaway.
