Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.
Gay wedding, Civil partnership, Wedding…the terminology doesn’t mean s*** to me. A wedding is a wedding and that’s that. The amazingly glam Brighton wedding of Matt & Leon was sent over by their photographer Lisa Devlin and I lapped up all the gorgeous details…who needs a bride!?
Leon & Matt got married on the anniversary of when they met and they day was a pretty memorable one! They squeezed into a stretch Hummer with their 8 bridesmaids, 3 flowergirls and the ring bearer for the short journey to Stanmer House near Brighton. Their ceremony was conducted by candlelight by a Registrar called Mr Love (!) and featured some incredible live singers.
After seeing Emma & James’ funky engagement session I couldn’t wait to see the wedding and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Emma dress was a 1930’s inspired design that was handmade for her in champagne crepe backed satin by ‘Rags to Bitches’ which is a vintage boutique on Tib Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester. She teamed this will gorgeous peach, sequinned shoes from Karen Millen and a gorgeous vintage style headband which was made from glass beads and pearls from a bridal shop in Poynton, Cheshire called Timeless Bride.
I have been dreaming about blogging this wedding since October when photographer Caroline of the wonderful Tinywater emailed me to let me know she was off to shoot a Halloween, fancy-dress gothic themed wedding…and even before shooting the wedding, she knew I was going to love it. Well judging by the number of photographs I’m including in this post you could say she was pretty much bang on! I was lucky enough to have Rachel, the bride get in contact with me to share all the glorious details!
I am really starting to fall head over heels in love with Matt Johnson Photography…and I’m not afraid to admit it! His images are subtle, unobtrusive and captures beautiful weddings with all the justice they deserve.
Elodie & Greg’s wedding was one I fell in love with as soon as I saw the first frame. Her amazing vintage-inspired outfit, jewellery and so-now white lace gloves make me smile with glee and his rad groom style puts every other groom to shame! The no-jacket/waistcoat look is totally Rock n Roll and looks way-too-cool when matched with his boys in braces. The details of this wedding are to die for – from the birdcages, the white heart motif, the retro ‘admissions’ sign, the outdoor chandelier. Awesome.
One of the greatest things about my job as a blogging maestro is all the wonderful people I get to meet…and it’s even better when we get to meet in real life! The delightful Emma Case is down in London for a few weeks and so emailed me and suggested we meet up go out for Sushi. Now, those that know me will be well aware that I’m not one to say no to Sushi! We met up last Tuesday and immediately hit it off, talking non-stop about wedding planning, photography, blogging, husbands, proposals, flowers, music…you know the drill! I was particularly excited to hear about some fabulous weddings she’s shot over the past few weeks and lucky for you I got first dibs on sharing them all with you (score!)
First up is Helene & Simon’s fabulously chic and rustic Yorkshire wedding and Helene looks ridiculously gorgeous in her vintage style dress made for her by Dresses at No. 9?
