Sharing The Love
April 13, 2009
I guess it must have been pretty obvious to everyone just how much I loved MangoRED as I have now been sent some more amazing photography exported from The Philippines, from Rock n Roll Bride reader, Cely.
What I really love about the photography that seems to be emerging from The Philippines is that it is so different to the work I see coming out of Britain or The States at the moment. The use of light in undoubtedly different in these photographs, maybe because the light literally is so different over there? Who knows, all I know is I am so happy to be able to share the work of MangoRED and Pat Dy with you, and that I most defiantly like it!
Again it is impossible for me to choose just one of Pat Dy’s weddings…so stand by for a bit of a love fest.
First up a Star Wars wedding…who says you can’t be gorgeous and geeky!?
The gorgeous MangoRED are also the subject of my guest post on Savvy Scoop this week , so head on over there for a bit and check it out too!

Facebook loves these guys. How do I know? Well because I sneak peeked a photo of them (with the focus on Jane's epic Terry Fox wedding dress) and people went crazy for it. Cue the most 'liked' wedding photograph on my facebook page ever. 430 (and counting) likes to be precisie. Mind. Blown.

A Homemade Star Wars & Lego Wedding for Geeks: Jennie & Jon
December 10, 2012
With just £5000 to spend, Jennie & Jon we're able to pull of their homemade and geeky wedding with a little bit of imagination and a lot of elbow grease! The ceremony took place at Emmanuel's Church in Sidlow and the reception was hosted at the bride's mother's house.
"We knew that when we decided to get married we would have to do it our own way and make it very individual", explained the bride. "We are both complete geeks and children at heart with a love for Star Wars and Lego, so how could it not be fun? We definitely didn't want a wedding that could have been anybody else's. All our friends live so far away and we only get together once or twice a year so we also wanted it to be very relaxed that we could just spend time with each other. We wanted to do as much as we could ourselves and scoured eBay and car boot sales for cheaper items."
My Neighbour Totoro and Star Wars Wedding: Sarah & Adam
April 15, 2014
Sarah and Adam's wedding was a true reflection of them. They love anime and Star Wars, so that was their starting point! The day was held at Priston Mill, Bath, in December. They wanted their day to be quirky (like them!) but also fun for their guests. They had retro games set up on the balcony of the barn and devised various drinking games, matching their theme, for their guests!

Geeky Renaissance Fair Wedding: Gwenn & Dave
September 19, 2014
Gwenn and Dave were married on 4th May so they started their inspiration with - what else? - but Star Wars. From there, they added lots of other geeky references of the things they both love, specifically Doctor Who and Disney. The bride wore a handmade dress that she made herself, a crown which she got at a Renaissance fair, and a veil made by her mother. Her amazing boots were House of Elloit.
Dracula, Harry Potter, The Princess Bride & Star Wars
Rob + Kristen
May 4, 2016
Once they chose their Dracula and Halloween theme, the only date that Jessica and Andrew wanted to have the wedding was October 31st.
"The wedding theme was 'Dinner at Dracula’s'," explained the bride. "I wanted to have the spookiness of Halloween mixed with the classiness of dining at with the Count. Harry Potter was also definitely part of my inspiration. I wanted long tables with tons of candles, over the top food bars, and an almost magical, other worldly experience for our guests."
A Bohemian Wedding with the World’s Coolest Centrepieces
January 10, 2012
Describing your wedding to me as 'vintage tech' automatically gets my attention. But when I actually laid eyes on the Star Wars figurines and helmets, the 80's VHS', the tennis rackets, the splashes of neon paint and the 80's cassette players...all nestled nicely into the bohemian chic setting...well I might have let out a little squeal of joy. The two juxtaposing ideas shouldn't work, but they do - perfectly.
