Prepare yourself for a super duper bumper post people. Sometimes I’m afraid I can’t help but go mad on the number of images I share on a wedding as beautiful (and as beautifully captured) as Sam & Adam’s. The couple got married at The uber stylish Andaz Hotel in London.
With Sam & Adam both being fashion designers (as well as a lot of their guests too!) the wedding was sure to be a ridiculously stylish affair. Sam looks gorgeous in her Marchesa gown and I am pretty much crazy about those Nicholas Kirkwood heels! Adam wore a suit from Dunhill.
Vegas baby! Meredith send me such a great description of Reed & Alicia’s cheesily fabulous Vegas-themed wedding that I just have to hand this one over to her…
“Reed & Alicia planned their fun, quirky wedding in just six weeks! When they began looking for ceremony locations & venues, the two came across this small chapel located near the beach where they usually walk with their golden retriever. After looking inside and seeing the bright red carpet & a cheesy stained glass window (with a rainbow & two doves) at the altar, Reed & Alicia came up with the idea of having a kitschy Las Vegas-themed wedding in this Vegas-esque chapel. They found 60 pairs of “Elvis” sunglasses on Ebay and envisioned having their guests put on these sunglasses right after they were pronounced husband & wife, during their kiss.”
Jessica & Kevin’s wedding was planned as the perfect reflection of them. Jessica, a title assistant and Kevin, a loan officer, both enjoy activities like camping, movies and music and so they made sure that all bases were covered for their wedding.
The couple got married in March Hacienda Restaurant in Santa Ana, CA. Jessica found her dress in the outlet section of Mon Amie bridal boutique in Costa Mesa, CA, but it didn’t have any labels on it so she was unsure of the desinger – does anybody know?! Her shoes were purple “Ivana” pumps by RSVP and her veil was made by Jessica’s mother Tammy. Jessica’s maid of honor Lindsey and her mother (Lindsey Mac Designs) made her earrings and necklace.
I’ve got a bonus post for you today, simply because I couldn’t help myself and wanted to blog this right away! Amanda and Walé got married in Cornwall, Polhawn Fort to be specific which overlooks a dramatic bay. Amanda wore a completely gorgeous bright blue Roland Mouret dress with pewter Jimmy Choo wedges (swoon.) The bouquet was a structural arrangement of Calla lilies and she clipped some pretty little butterflies from Urban Outfitters in her hair. Her ring was the ‘crystal haze’ ring by Stephen Webster and Wale’s ring was from Sarah Sheridan.
Toni & Richard had a gothic/burlesque inspired wedding at Prested Hall in Colchester in March of this year. “Our inspiration mainly comes from my admiration of burlesque and my unnerving love of Bettie Paige (who I have recently had tattooed on me)” Toni told me. “Not being much of a girly girl and never one who ‘dreamt of their big day’, I didn’t actually know where to start after the proposal. I like wearing jeans, having a Mohawk and being covered in tattoos and wearing too much make up!”
I found a linky to the wedding of UBER UBER UBER cool recent bride and artist Zoetica Ebb & her writer husband Ales Kot on Gala Darling last week and literally couldn’t wait to share it with you – especially after I visited Zoetica’s inspiring website and laid eyes on her sparkly, blue, fauxhalk! Serious hair envy batman!
The pair actually got officially married in a microscopic civil ceremony June as Ales is a Czech citizen (you can see Zoetica’s post on the event here including their adorable ‘leaving the ceremony’ video) so the couple decided that a second ‘just for show’ ceremony didn’t make sense so their wedding was actually just a big old Rock n Roll celebration!
Zoetica wore the parachute gown from All Saints, which was a gift from her friend Courtney and a necklace from her husband, a keishi pearl and black garnet beaded necklace with pyritized ammonite pendant and three pink sapphire drops, by Ria Charisse, purchased through the lovely folks at Gold Bug Pasadena. The pair also had custom-sculpted and cast rings made by Shane Case. “We wanted a texture that looked somewhere between bark and flesh and the lunar surface” Zoetica told me.
