Standing Out From The Crowd
July 22, 2009
What you’ll probably first notice about this set (apart from the Bride’s wicked tattoo and the wedding’s cute daisy theme) is that the photography is a little different. Photographer
Katie Malone uses a variety of techniques to make her work stand out from the crowd.
First we have the Holga images, an inexpensive ‘toy’ camera that produces distorted and low-fidelity images. The effect is dramatic light leaks (the red intrusions) blurs and vignetting (the soft dark edged images). She accompanies this with the use of infra-red (in black and white and with complete colour washes) and TTV (Through the Viewfinder) images. The latter looks a little like a Polaroid and produce a vintage looking, square image with a dark black border.
These techniques aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure any Rock n Roll Bride can appreciate the originality and quirkiness of the result.
Thanks to Katie for sharing…

1970s Inspired Backyard Barbecue Wedding: Emily & Chris
March 14, 2013
Ahh Emily & Chris' Florida nuptials is what my wedding dreams are made of. Getting ready in the Hard Rock Hotel (my spiritual home for sure) this achingly cool pair had their beautiful wedding at Ybor City Museum Garden in Tampa. Emily wore the Greenbow lace gown by BHLDN and Miu Miu shoes, while Chris kept it casual yet chic in a checked shirt and a vintage velvet jacket combo. The 1970s is an era that many might feel should be left back with the flares, disco and Woodstock hippies, but I'm am here to tell you the exact opposite. How bloody cool are these two?!
Backyard Tipi Wedding with Skunk Anansie as the Wedding Band: Mark & Erika
Cotton Candy Weddings
June 28, 2013
Sigh! I just adore weddings liked Mark and Erika's. Chilled out, not at all matchy-matchy and where everyone looks like they had a total blast. The couple didn't wait a 'tick the box' wedding, instead they pulled inspiration from all over - their heritage, their home and their friends. "We didn't really have a theme or colours that matched", Erika wrote. "I have always been a mis-match kind of girl so we had elements of our backgrounds so Japan / Yorkshire / countryside / Autumn / vintage/ boho!"
Barcelona Garden Wedding with a Navy Theme: Julieta & Christian
F2 Photo Studio
April 19, 2013
For their June wedding, Julieta & Christian wanted a day that was laid-back, fun and stress-free. They opted for a garden setting and a party late into the night. The couple both have a passion for music, but Christian particularly who is in a band and loves nothing more than to go to gigs or play one of his nine guitars with his friends. Clearly the music and the entertainment was going to play a big role in this celebration.

Old Timely, 1920s Inspired Lawn Party
June 12, 2016
Vasilia and Joe's wedding had an old timely feel. It was held in a friend's back garden and all their guests dressed in their 1920s inspired finest! "Before we started planning, we sat down for an hour or so and each quietly broke out our thoughts for every aspect of our vision", said the bride. "We quickly realised that we had very similar, if not the same thoughts on almost everything. I can’t say that anything in particular inspired us other than our desire to make a unique experience for our guests that showcased our personality and taste, without the regular formality and stuffiness of a wedding."
