Simple & Classy (+ Kick Ass Tattoo)

Marie & Seth’s wedding is not only simple and beautiful but how could I see these and not rave on about Marie’s swoon-worthy tattoo?! Doesn’t she look so beautiful and classy? Her dress was custom made by San Diego designer Valena Valentina and the co-ordination and design of the wedding was by  Cynthia of Cynthia Zatkin Events.

Modern Shanghai Styling

I have a crazy busy day today but I just had to drop by to share this ridiculously amazing wedding venue and decor. The modern Shanghai theme was together by Lotus. I wouldn’t even want to speculate how much this bash cost but the result is pretty damn spectacular – the huge cake, the millions of lanterns, the field of flowers… The Bride Ita looked uber glamorous in the Vera Wang and actually got up at 2am to start getting ready…are you kidding me?! The poor photographers! I’m sure they forgave her when they saw the results though, what an amazing wedding to shoot.
Catch you later my pretties.

But Rain = Rainbows!

One thing you can always count on in England is the rain…it will always come when you don’t want it too. In some circles rain on your wedding day is considered the worst thing that could ever happen but it others it is seen to be a sign on good luck and prosperity for the marriage to come. I am likely to think myself that neither her of these are true and as long as you still get some damn good photographs it’s all good. Plus as soon as I saw the shot with the rainbow I was sold on the whole rainy-day photo shoot idea!

Asian weddings are full of tradition, colour (the Bride traditionally wears red) and are always an absolutely massive party (I have a friend at work who got married a few months after us and she had about 350 people at her wedding!) They also go on for about a week, with all the celebrations climaxing with a ceremony that lasts for many hours.

Thanks to Craig & Chanelle Segerius Bruce for sharing..and I am very excited because I am actually doing a photo shoot with the guys tomorrow!

A Colourful Mess

I’d just like to start by saying those were the Bride’s words not mine but I like it so I stole it. They started off with wanting a 1920’s theme but once they fell in love with their bright Bridesmaid dressed they knew that was out the window. The theme then morphed to ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ but ended up as ‘whatever the hell was want!’ I like that theme..screw being constrained by any kinda rules!

A few more awesome tips and ideas from the couple…
We made all our paper stuffs – the invitations, programs, placecards, table numbers and photocards. We did everything on a modest budget and still got stuff we wanted. I love my dress – I found it on sale, in perfect condition. Joe picked out his tux on his own and we found a matching fedora for the reception. Our cake topper was custom made to look just like is by Naked Peggies on Etsy. We also picked very random songs to play during the reception. Hardly anyone knew what they were, but we loved them. It kept us dancing the whole night!

And possibly my favourite fact about this wedding…
Did I mention that although we were engaged for over a year, everything changed about 6 weeks out, so we did pretty much everything in a very short period of time? No, well, we did! We were really go-with-the-flow, whatever happens, happens and we didn’t really care about a lot of the details.We didn’t do centerpieces, we had chocolate suckers as favors, and we really didn’t care what anyone wore. It was a very low-key crazy-colorfest!

Methinks we can all learn a lot from this crazy couple..I totally heart them. Thanks Susan & Joe for not only sharing, but proving that stressing about having the ‘perfect’ wedding just doesn’t matter!

I am completely loving her dress, their ring shot is making me crave neon coloured sweeties and all the portraits with the streaming light make me wanna get up and dance a little bit, how about you?
