Some call it madness, many call it obsession but when I see images like these I just have to blog them right away! Can I tell you, last night I went out with the girls for sushi and cocktails and I woke up fresh as a daisy at 8am ridiculously excited about sharing Steph & Ryan’s wedding, sent to me by the ever darling Kelty of Steep Street. Yep. I is crazy indeed.
Emily looked ridiculously stylish in her Ian Stuart dress…actually called ‘Rock n Roll’ no less (!) and her custom made shrug to match by Holly Stalder. I am also loving the faux fur coat she rocked when walking to the ceremony from Per Una at Marks & Spencer.
To make their wedding truly their own, the couple bought local ale and champagne for their reception, had a friend do all their flowers and each guest was asked to choose their favourite song to have it played at the reception. Emily also asked her Mum to read a poem she wrote at the ceremony
As in a perfectly beautiful painting, where colours and tones mover together;
And make us pause for breath, because such co-existence is a display of the perfect and simple possibilities of this world.
So, in marriage, when you do not need to hold his hand, or feel her breath on your cheek
But know that love is ever present, that undeniable depth of love and care that cannot be explained or measured.
That dear Emily and John is our wish for you.
Continuing their perfect Rock n Roll day, acoustic versions of Metallica songs played as the guests entered their reception at The Great Barn.
It’s official. I am actually starting to finally believe that the UK is catching up to America in the style stakes. When this wedding winged it’s way to me from the West Midlands (that’s a bit up north for my American readers!) I knew straight away that sharing it would make me a very happy blogger indeed.
Magda & Seba’s funky NYC wedding took place at a Catholic church in Brooklyn and then the party continued at Staten Island’s Grand Plaza. Their day had a distinctive black and red theme with certainly an edge of Rock n Roll – Magda even DIYed their beautiful and impressive centerpieces (flowers supplied to Carol’s Florist) adding the crystals herself to really pile on the glamour. The cake also perfectly fitted their uber glam theme and was made to match their own vision by The Cake Topper, NYC.
Anna & AJ’s wedding certainly rocked pretty damn hard. They had a kick ass party at San Chez Bistro in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Although the day looked really classic and gorgeous, it certainly was edgy and unique in a lot of ways, which was a perfect reflection of who they are. Photographer Jill described Anna as a free spirit and who just kind of did things her own way, while still putting together a really classy celebration.
I featured Mary’s killer bridal session earlier this year – the aviators, gun and cigar really did it for me – so as always I’ve been eagerly awaiting for her wedding to Opie and I’m certainly not disappointed. I’m so excited that photographer Jenna wanted to share these with us:
On her big day Mary not only rocked finger waves (vintage chic oh lala), a consignment shop wedding dress, a DIY wheat bouquet and red heels, but she and her beloved, Opie, had a wedding pie instead of wedding cake, saw each other before the ceremony (yay!), gave homemade truffles to their guests (and their photographer as well, which doubles their coolness factor in my book), and served hamburgers as their wedding dinner.
