I know I get seemingly over excited with everything I blog, but when Rock n Roll Bride gets to bring you exclusive first shows of weddings like this can you blame me?!
Audra & Bryan’s wedding is modern, sexy, uber stylish and crazy full of love! The event took place at Me by Melia which was recently the home to the cast of The Real World. Andra looks stunning in her cute dress which she got from Nordstroms.
Enjoy little ones…
The second UK wedding of the day is Clare & Dean’s classically beautiful rustic, vintagey romantic wedding. They employed the talents of my good friend Penny Merricks of Tigerlily Weddings to plan their day to perfection. Didn’t she do a fabulous job?
“I made all the invites that featured vintage lovebird stamps and ‘to have and to hold’ ribbon from Cox & Cox“ Clare told me. “Also I handmade the luggage tags for place cards with same vintage bird stamps and ribbon. I asked friends and family to collect glass jam jars for months, and we covered them with lace and ribbon for tea-light holders. A designer friend of ours also made the booklet that contained the history of the barn, order of ceremony, pictures of our parents and grandparents on their wedding days, the menu and the last page contained a quiz about us both… also using the same vintage love bird stamps.”
Featuring UK weddings makes me happy. Not only because I know being a British blogger makes me stand out from the crowd, but because it makes me so happy that us Brits are finally catching up to our American friends in the style stakes! Therefore to celebrate I’m going to blog not one, but two awesome UK weddings today (and a little bit of California dreamin’ at the end of the day – sorry I can’t resist it.)
I’m kicking off with a wedding that’s not only fabulously unique but the bride is in a purple dress! It was actually an Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dress but certainly did the job as a glamorous and unique bridal outfit.
Yeah so I’ve gone a little nuts with this post. Sixty four photographs may be a lot to share in one bumper go, but once you lay eyes on these I know you’re going to allow it!
Chad & Christine, what can I say? The super stylish pair had a fabulous eco wedding at the end of October at Lake Oak Meadows. The bride wore a Sue Wong dress which she bought from Saks and both she and her groom had wooden rings made by Gustav Reyes which of course complimented their rustic, eco, hippy-chic theme to a tee. The bridesmaids all chose their own dresses from David’s Bridal and the boys wore suits from Men’s Warehouse.
This is such an exciting post for me because not only have I been dying to see Jenn & Brad’s ever since I featured their junkyard engagement shoot and saw Jenn’s Couture bridal shoot, but today I get to work alongside two of my favouritest blogs, Ruffled and Green Wedding Shoes, to bring you the full report on their fabulous wedding day!
What I love the most about blogging is making friends and getting to know people all over the world. The bride, Sarah actually emailed me a few months ago to ask my advice on something and so I have been looking forward to seeing their wedding and her bridal shoot since then…and I now have a new friend who’s moving to London next year – woo!
Dustin and I are both in the creative field, so we definitely wanted to put our talents (and our friend’s talents) to good use. We had friends create the save the date poster, read poems for the ceremony, play guitar and sing during the ceremony, create the invitations/placecards/programs, you name it!
