All Because of Rock n Roll

Bonnie & Rod’s 195os inspired wedding was held at Malcolm’s Of Maleny in Queensland, Australia. When I asked photographer Julian what made this pair rock n roll, he had the perfect answer for me…

“Bonnie was born and raised in Australia and in short, is a singer. Rod was born and raised in Mississippi and had never been to Australia before — They met over the Internet through each other’s music, Rod being a Guitarist in a band without a singer. Bonnie was asked by Rod to record a singing part to a piece he had recorded. And the rest, as they say, is history. He flew over and met her, they dated and then, obviously, married. All because of Rock And Roll, literally.”

Surprise! Phoebe & Teraaka’s Family Central UK Wedding

I’ve got a bit of a surprise today… {sneaky chuckle} Phoebe & Teraaka’s stunner of a UK wedding was actually submitted to me by their naughty friend Cheska as she said Phoebe would be too shy to submit herself – are you kidding me girlie?! You’re wedding is utter hotness!

Phoebe & Teraaka’s simple and perfectly English, outdoor wedding just captured my imagination with it’s almost quaint and perfectly personal nature. The wedding was DIY and family central with details such as potted flowers picked from Phoebe’s grandparents fields and garden as centrepieces which were later re-planted in Phoebe & Teraaka’s garden at their new home. The main centrepiece was an apple tree from Teraaka’s aunt and uncle in Hereford (where Teraaka was born) and was also replanted in the couple’s garden after the wedding. Phoebe’s family are from Burton on Trent (beer capital of the UK) so her father provided a few barrels of Burton beer. Phoebe’s dress and shoes were both from my favourite shop, Topshop.

Cheska told me a whole  bunch of juicy details about this fabulous wedding. I wish I’d been there!

The wedding itself is very hard to describe as Teraaka & Phoebe didn’t want it to be at all ‘weddingy’ in any sense of the word, so I apologise for being vague. They are both only young (now 22 and 20 respectively) and didn’t feel the need for a big do. With a new home and new baby boy, they couldn’t really afford anything too ostentatious. They wanted something small, to share their happiness (and new addition) with their family and friends. As only family and close friends were at the ceremony, they knew they had no one to ‘impress’ and could do everything exactly as they wished. And they said that if they thought they had really missed out, they could always renew their vows when they had more money.

Tattoo my Love

“Noel Mason is the man behind award winning Ink Tattoo Studio in Palmerston North, New Zealand and Denise Candy is the woman behind the man behind award winning Ink Tattoo Studio” Photographer Stephen told me.

“I first met Noel a couple of years back when I paid him to put holes in my body. Those holes have long since closed up, but Noel has become a good friend and is the guy responsible for the pretty drawings (kick-ass tattoos) that I wear proudly on my skin.”

“When Noel introduced me to Denise, it was pretty clear he thought he’d won the jackpot. Together, they make a wonderful, crazy couple, and I was honoured when Noel asked me to shoot his missus (with my camera, of course!) on their wedding day.”

“The night before the big day we all scooted over to Levin to see Dave Stevens at Electric Ink Studio for the tattooing of Noel n’ Denise’s wedding rings. Dave tattooed Noel. Noel tattooed Denise, and I winced like a little girl at the sight of the tattoo gun making its mark on their fingers. But the photos were uber cool, and there was definite anticipation in the air for the day to come.”

Modern Marie Antoinette

Simone & Matt were married at the Historic Mission in San Diego.  Simone wore a Monique Lhuillier dress from and Christian Louboutin shoes.  After the ceremony all the guests headed over to the Prado restaurant at Balboa Park for an outdoor cocktail hour with hors d’ourves and live jazz.  Before entering the ballroom the couple entertained the guests with giant Bride and Groom pinatas which were attacked by kids and grownups alike.  There was no formal sit down dinner.  Instead guests were welcome to use the sushi bar and the mini kobe burger and fries bar.  Big band jazz and vocals entertained.  Later in the evening the band packed up and a DJ took over while a separate room was opened up with a taco bar and a ‘Tostitoes’ bar.

Hannah & Ali’s Quirky, Art Deco and Too-Damn-Freakin’-Cool British Wedding

Do you remember Hannah & Ali’s awesome ‘at home’ engagement shoot complete with their awesome kitty cat? Well I was over the moon to receive an email full to bursting with their quirky, art deco, vintagey wedding goodness from their photographer Steve Gerrard just the other day. I am loving Hannah’s Jenny Packham dress and headband (le swoon indeed) and the bridesmaids look just too damn cool for school in their All Saints dresses.

Their wedding took place just before Christmas at The Daffodil in Cheltenham, a fantastic converted 1920’s Art Deco picture house Steve tells us, The vintage theme continued throughout the wedding and I have to say I wish more couples would go down this route. I think it’s so cool and stylish. Hannah and Ali both looked amazing, but their guests also made a huge effort and win the award for best dressed guests ever!

Carnival Crazy

Dina & Gary’s 1920’s vaudeville carnival themed wedding makes me wanna squeal. I wish wish wish we’d done something as fabulous as this when we got hitched. The wedding took place at Asbury Park, New Jersey and the pair really went to town with their theme – from popcorn and candy for the guests, a sideshow performance, goldfish in bowls… in fact everything you might expect to find at a carnival! Dina wore a custom dress (made by a friend) and wore jewellery and carried a candy bouquet made by another friend Melissa Heid.
