When I was send these by Gracci of Pelaez Photography, my immediate thought they must be taken right out of the pages of a magazine.  However on closer inspection (and reading – I always skip the text to begin with and head straight to the images!) I discovered, to my delight, that these were actually real life wedding photographs!  How stylish, how retro, how…how… envious!
It is impossible to choose just one wedding from MangoRED to share with you so hold on to your pants, I’m about to embark on a MangoRED love fest!

This Filipino photographic duo have such a great ethos, I just have to share:

Our vision is based on principles of openness, directness, irreverence, democracy and a dislike of institutions and pretensions.

We’re always looking for the culturally relevant work and staying current with the hive mind. It’s intuitive, a lot of it. We think it’s just experiencing how far you can keep your mind open on a daily basis, and paying attention.

We’d like to describe our work as a tickle in your brain. .it’s not just the quality of the idea, it’s the quality of the execution, the finish. the unique spin in colors, the lines, perspective..when these elements align, they create a visual perfume.

We believe that no matter how monstrous your talent, no matter your adeptness with concepts, your adroitness with words, with pictures, no matter how much you have learned from all the creative masters who have gone before you, it will mean nothing – no, it will mean less than nothing – if you do not love your work with all its pain and glory. .every last sweet and sour moment of it – the late nights, the lost Sundays.

We love it all. Embrace it all. Suck it all in and let it shape and form us into something amazing, something with depth and breadth and subtle variations in texture and color, the likes of which we’ve never seen.

We love what we do..the highs and lows and weave it all into what we are, and what we are to become. Inspiring us to work harder and longer and smarter than we did the day before.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy this first set of engagements and wedding photographs… Bryan & Erika

Stay tuned for some more greatness – I promise, you won’t be disappointed.  A HUGE thanks to Gracci for making me aware of this new mecca of wedding joy!

Spooning

Oh yes..a new Punam Bean wedding to share!  The Bride is wearing a gorgeous vintagey Jenny Packham dress (with black boots for the walking!) and I am just a little bit in love with that light fitting made out of spoons!

Erupting Onto The Yorkshire Dales!

Sometimes really weird things happen and this is one of them..well maybe weird is not the right word, but coincidence.  I was sent the link to this wedding by one my my wonderful readers Nibi.  I checked out the photographers site (which I always do when I’m sent something to blog about) and realised I have actually been photographed by him myself!  It was one of those family photo shoots you have…the photographs came out pretty cool and we’ve still got one on our living room wall – maybe I’ll share them one day.
Anyway, as usual I digress!

Suzie and her rock star hubby Alex (check out his band, The Eruptors on myspace) married at Danby Castle in North Yorkshire.  The Bride Suzie said of their Rock ‘n Roll day..

I think the main idea of our wedding was getting a colourful and eclectic mix of our rock n’ roll and traditional aesthetic. I also think having me and my friends come from northern California brought something that stood out as different and a cool contrast in that very North Yorkshire landscape.

We’ve had a lot of the friends and family who came tell us it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever attended and that it was beautiful and unique. It was quite a feat for essentially planning the whole thing in a little over 2 months! To me, the best part was how intimate the whole day felt. I felt truly in love and surrounded by love.
Aww…cute!

A huge thank you to Nibi for winging these my way!

Pink Flamingos!

I promised you I had more of Cameron Ingalls’ photography to share with you, and this wedding is sure not to disappoint.  From the pink parasol to the Martha Stewart pom poms and the pink flamingos(!), there’s nothing about this wedding I don’t absolutely adore!
There’s a little bit of Holga love in there too..I know some of you are massive fans…
