A Perfect Ensemble

I am sharing this wedding for one main reason – Sara’s dress…don’t you just love it? It was based on her Grandmother’s gown and was designed and made for her by Dame Couture. I don’t think she could be wearing a more perfect for her ensemble…the dressm the veil, the glasses, trhe shoes – it all suits her so much!

Thanks for the share Olivia!

An Especially Special Day

Lisa of Ophelia Photography not only captured this wedding as beautifully as she always does, but as the couple were  some of her best friends she was also a Bridesmaid – multi tasking or what?

The boots, the flowers, the Bridesmaid dresses, the skate park, the rockstar photo shoot…I love it all!

Lisa described the day on her blog:
The say good things come to those who wait, and these two waited 11 years for their wedding day.   It was perfect in every-way and I was honored to take part in the celebration as both the photographer and bridesmaid.   I believe it was my most challenging wedding to date, as I was swept up in the emotions of the day and having to relinquish control of only shooting about 50 % of the photos.   My beautiful and lovely dear friend of 24 years (we met in preschool at age 4) was drop dead gorgeous and anyone in her presence on that day felt the magic.   The magic being that after 11 years they were getting married and celebrating their love in front of close family and friends.    

As Enya played we waiting by the bridge prepared to walk down the aisle to stand presently for Jen and Rich.   As I watched Jen coming down the aisle and Richard watching her…. I was done.   Oh the tears….their tears, the happiness, the moment, was like a dream.   Jen and Rich were radiating with happiness.   All of there parents were radiating with happiness….11 years of happiness.   It was awesome!

Bookworm Bride

Melissa & Adam, two self-proclaimed bookworms (check out that cake!) had a fabulously bright, fun wedding. The details are just wonderful – their shoes, the daisy pomander bouquet, the paper pom poms, the sweet n simple table layout…oh and I am crazy about those ring shots! So original and so colourful!

Thanks Rob – you rock!

Vibrant Tradition

Indian weddings always make me smile…it’s all the colour, the jewellery and the tradition of it all – I’m not completely anti-tradition you see! A friend of mine who got married a few months after me and had a traditional Indian wedding and our celebrations couldn’t have been more different! For starters their ceremonies go on for about 4 hours and the actually wedding celebrations last at least a week!

Thanks to Moe for sharing!

ps For those of you that have been asking, my photo shoot yesterday was very cool – it was probably the hottest day of the year and we were knackered afterwards but it was so much fun! I got to dress up like a punky pink princess on acid..I can’t wait to see and share the results!

A Tattooed Rockstar Fest!

I’m on a (rock n) roll and I ain’t stopping, especially with these photographs to share – I know you are gonna go crazy over them (yeah I say that a lot but it’s really really true a lot.)

Remember this ridiculously fabulous movie credit style wedding video? The one with the Groom with his sexy voice and the Bride with her awesome tattoos? Sure you do!
Well the couple just got their wedding photographs back and Kate sent them straight over to me..woop woop! I didn’t think it possible after seeing their video, but the photographs are just as fantastic and they really make them look like total rock stars – seriously the most awesomely tattooed couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of blogging!

The couple did a lot of DIY to make their wedding totally their own…
We made all of our centerpieces out of vinyl records, and my husband hand painted/water-colored all of our table numbers. Our favors were temporary tattoos, and then a some of our friends that are also artists, painted “wedding related” pieces and we made them into stickers. We also built the altar.

Clicky here fore more (164 images!) Unfortunatly too many for even me to post!

The couple also have a watercolour and jewellery etsy store which you really must check out too. OK on to the good stuff!

Update & Another Sunshine Wedding

Happieee Friday! For those of you not following me on Twitter (erm..hello, why not? I’m very entertaining don’t you know) and who haven’t heard my cries of desperation, the blog is having a few techie issues right now with links disappearing (i.e the ‘older entires’ button that should be at the bottom of every screen has vanished – hint if you want to go back and see more, click onto the post before the end of the page and click back to the next post from there)
However the good news is that it’s fixable by my computer expert/uber geek Husband (he has his uses) and that the reason it got all messed up is because the site has got too popularfor our little server so he’s in the process of transferring everything to a big Daddy server hehe <blush>

Anyway, catch up time! This beautiful yellow themed wedding (again with the yellow – I told you it was in this year!) was sent to me by photographer Ashley O’Dell, and with those portraits on a sofa…in a field (!) how could I say no? I am also loving the adorable Mr & Mrs huge white flowers…a cool twist on the usual ‘thank you’ photograph..and the shoes, ahh I always love the shoes!
