The Colour Purple

July 30, 2010

Jenni & George are another ‘inspired by Rock n Roll Bride’ couple who found their photographer Shan after she was featured on the blog. The couple, who got married on the Isle of Man, wanted to incorporate he things they love into their day – the colour purple and all things eclectic, antique and vintage. “I have a love of all things antique and vintage and my favourite colour is purple! So that’s where it began. I bought a lot of the antique bottles from places like eBay, Jurby Junk (!!) and our friend Roger Leece, who found a whole stack of bottles and jars buried somewhere up North apparently!” the bride told me.

They organised and created a lot of the wedding themselves, as they knew exactly what they wanted – ie something that reflected them and not anyone else. They wanted to create something unique, something different and something quiescently ‘them’. “I am not a big fan of your standard table centre-pieces so I decided that using sprays of different wildflowers would really compliment the style of the wedding” Jenni continued. “We had these both at the church and on the tables at the reception. I spent months slowly collecting various bits and pieces from charity shops and high street shops to decorate the marquee with. I am quite artistic and love interior design, so having the chance to design the inside of a whole marquee was something I was very excited about doing.”

Fabulous! Thanks to Jenni, George and their photographer Shan for sharing this inspiring wedding with us today
