Anthropologie & Rustic Farm Elegance with a Rock n Roll Twist
February 15, 2010
Oh squeeeeal! I’m not sure I can say anything more intellectual about Luke & Charis’ wedding and Charis’ bridal shoot, in fact I think only ‘squeeeal’ will cover it. So. Much. Awesome!
“This couple was married in a barn at Sharon Rose Farm in Greenville SC” photographer Anna told me “The bride is a hair stylist, the groom is a drummer – so the music and the style was fabulous and original. I thought what was so rock n roll about this wedding was that the bride made surprise stick-on tattoos to replicate her new husband’s favorite tattoo on his arm, and all the guests had a mini tattoos during the reception just like the groom!”
Charis wore a dress from David’s Bridal and she asked her bridesmaids to simply pick their own black dress.
When Charis and her bridesmaids walked into the venue someone said, “It looks like an anthropologie catalogue just walked in!” The ceremony and reception were held in a beautiful red renovated horse barn. It was such a nice mix of rustic farm, elegant chandeliers and vintage flare. There were mason jars with wild flowers, and baskets of peanuts on cocktail tables as guests mingled and sipped lemonade before the entering the barn. An old typewriter was used as a to write notes to the bride and groom, and a sweet bird cage to put them in.
Just sit back and enjoy these – I know you will!
Thanks to Anna for sharing this amazing wedding with us

Rustic Winter Wedding on a Farm: Katie & Nicholas
December 21, 2012
Getting married on December 1st, Katie & Nicholas had a rustic winter themed wedding. The day was held at Karnes Stables in Florida. "According to our guests, our wedding felt like 'Twilight' meets 'Pinterest' which I am NOT offended by at all!" laughed the bride. "I wanted our day to feel magical and very comfortable and I think through the months of planning and creating, we achieved what we wanted perfectly. The hard work and creativity did not go unnoticed by our guests."
"We've always been very creative and didn't want a normal clichéd or traditional wedding. Pinterest was a huge inspiration but we didn't want to copy what everyone else had done. So we just brainstormed a lot on ideas how to make it feel like 'us'. We hunted down every item at the Salvation Army and second hand stores and turned other people's trash into our treasures!"

Bohemian Peaky Blinders Wedding with Lots of DIY
December 4, 2018
Charlie and Mark had a pretty unconventional, NSFW engagement shoot (which is actually one of my favourites we've ever published!) so, unsurprisingly, their September wedding shunned tradition too. They decided that they wanted a bohemian inspired by with elements of Peaky Blinders and Wes Anderson. They did lots of DIY projects to make their day feel really special and personal. In particular they arranged all the flowers and created all the paper goods (invites, table plan, order of the day etc).
Rustic Farmhouse Wedding: Emma & Trevor
April 17, 2013
Emma & Trevor's farmhouse wedding took place in February. Donington Park Farmhouse, an amazing space in Derbyshire, was really what set the theme of the day. The couple wanted the décor they chose to suit the surroundings, and so the wedding evolved into a rustic inspired theme. They had natural elements such as stone and exposed brick, key vintage pieces on the tables and wildflowers.

A wedding dress made of a recycled crochet tablecloth, custom buttons for every member of the wedding party and flowers grown by the couple themselves... there's just so much to love about Angie and Lionel's thrifty, farm wedding! Married in Chrissiesmeer, South Africa on 28th April this year, this couple really did plan the wedding they truly wanted.

The bride wore a dress by La Redoute, the groom was in Topman and the bridesmaids, ASOS. The cake was made by the bride's mum and they also arranged all the flowers themselves.
A Halloween-esque Steam Train of Epicness
December 21, 2009
Kim & Alex's wedding hit me like a steam train of epicness when I laid eyes on it. I'm pretty sure my insessent ramblings can't bring it justice so I think it's only fair I hand over to Kim with all the fantastic details. As usual, I'll be back with the eye candy.
"Originally our theme was “Halloween Town” from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but as time went on, our theme evolved beyond Tim Burton to include other geeky things we love as a couple such as zombies, toys, film and... well... Halloween!
We were mostly inspired by films (predominantly Tim Burton and Zombie flicks) and our own Halloween experiences. We just looked at the little things we loved most and used that to make our wedding our own.
I’m in love with Burlesque-wear and wanted to incorporate that whimsical, glam-yet-sexy look to my outfit. Instead of bridal magazines, my fashion designer friend and I looked through many burlesque photos and lingerie books to gather inspiration for my dress. For my shoes, I found the most awesome bright green zombie shoes designed by Iron Fist. They were out of stock in Toronto, so Alex and I sent out all our online Twitter friends on a mad hunt for them. We ended up getting them shipped from Ohio. A few months later, a friend of mine from Chicago found the flat versions of the same zombie shoes, which I was really thankful for. I cannot walk in heels!
The groom’s suit was inspired by Jack Skellington. He didn’t want to take the blatant replica route by getting a pin stripe suit. Instead, his plain black suit had black skeleton appliques all throughout. He even had a hoodie that had the skull on the hood! Since he almost always only exclusively wear Chuck Taylors, he wore black on black Chucks to the wedding. To add a sense of “badass” to his outfit, as well as his groomsmen/groomsgirl, our good friend, We Kill You made us custom pimp sticks for them to walk around with.
We were really lenient with our wedding party when it came to what to wear
