Janel & Eddie’s Action Packed Central Park Wedding
June 16, 2011
Janel & Eddie were married at Central Park’s Conservatory Garden. “As soon as planning started I realized that if I worried about giving people what they expected from a wedding or what would make them comfortable, I would not enjoy my day as much as I should” Janel told me. ” So I just went for everything that makes me happy and comfortable and made those the focal points of the wedding. I don’t see the point in buying an expensive pair of shoes for a dress that you are going to only wear once, so I got cool sneakers that I can wear again, and again, even if the dress will have to stay hung up forever. I also love our action figure collection and my British Sci-Fi shows (especially doctor who), so I threw them in there too with a weeping angel in my bouquet and a TARDIS as my card box.”
The wedding theme started off as having a vintage carnival vibe, but by the time the wedding rolled round it had morphed into a “Whatever the hell Eddie and Janel want, with a vintage touch” (their own words!) The bride wore a dress by
Michelle Roth with customised Converse and carried a DIY bouquet like no other! “Anything can be part of your bouquet,” she explained. ” When my girls started to feel left out that only the boys had action figures as boutonnieres, I went on the hunt for all of the female kick ass action figures that I could find (which was harder than I thought). I wrapped 22 gauge wire around one their feet to make something like a stalk that I then put into the bouquets so that they had some support. The result was a unique touch that didn’t necessarily jump out at you right away.”
Thanks to Janel & Eddie and their photographers Sweet Little Photographs for sharing these today.

I Love that Glove
September 9, 2012
Honestly? I struggled with what to write about today. Usually on a Sunday I'll post something non-wedding related that's caught my eye or I'll share something exciting that I've done in the week. But I shared my Photography Farm retreat escapades in this week's Thursday Treats and since then I've basically been chained to my computer replying to the squillions of emails that came in whilst I was away and writing as many blog posts as physically possible. I also spent rather a lot of time on the phone to Cosmopolitan Magazine. NO BIG DEAL (more on this soon!)
And then this wedding pinged into my inbox and it all became clear.

Reclaimed Wedding at The Green Building: Alison & Michael
June 10, 2013
Alison and Michael were married at The Green Building in Brooklyn. They got together after chance meeting at Kate's Paperie in New York, a Craigslist 'Lost Connection' that actually worked and a long online relationship. After finally getting together and then getting engaged they planned the wedding in just three short months.
"When planning the wedding I became charmed by the idea of parlour weddings, the way folks used to do it before the Big Business of weddings", Alison explained. "So we wanted to create the look and feel of a living room for ours. We wanted to take items from each of our apartments and create a cozy and personal space where we could gather our nearest and dearest to watch us make this amazing commitment."
“Englishman in New York” – An Intimate Wedding on a Private Yacht: Natasha and Marc
July 19, 2012
When Gareth & I were in New York in May we met up with photographer Steve Gerrard as he was also over from the UK to shoot Natasha & Marc's wedding! The couple, also from England, flew him over with them as they knew he was their perfect wedding photographer after seeing him featured on Rock n Roll Bride.
The intimate ceremony was held in the Ladies Pavilion in Central Park, which was followed by a photo session around some iconic NYC locations (they also met up again the next day to shoot some more!) The reception was on a private yacht with incredible views of the city.
