Kristy & Patrick were married at
Scottadito, a traditional Tuscan restaurant in Brooklyn. After lunch together, the whole wedding party paraded down the street to their reception venue, The Rock Shop, where they partied into the night. They planned their wedding in just two months and were adamant that they would have their day their way.
“On one level, we are just a little bit quirky and I definitely did not want the standard wedding affair,” Kristy told me. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but we just figured that plenty of other people do it, so it might be fun to shake things up a little! On another level, my Dad is deceased and I didn’t want to feel any sort of absence on the day of my wedding, so we cut out the aisle so I didn’t have to walk down one by myself (instead I ran in the restaurant shaking a tambourine – so fun!) and forgot the parent dances.”
“Our wedding was fun and filled with love (and parades!) Our idea of a wedding was definitely different than most peoples’ and we got the sense that people either loved it or thought it was a bit strange. But we pushed forward and figured that we’re only getting married once and wanted to be totally happy with it. In the end, our wedding was exactly what we wanted and more than we could have imagined. It was perfect.”
This is so adorable and such a fun idea for a wedding. Thanks to Kristy & Patrick and their photographers Sweet Little Photographs for sharing this awesome day with us today.

New York Bookshop Wedding
May 8, 2017
Jade and David were married in a New York bookshop in August. They themed their wedding around their love of travel, and on the tables were photo props for each of the cities they were named after. "We were inspired New York!", said Jade. "It was the first place we went on holiday together and we've been back a few times since. We knew it would be the perfect place for us to get married."
A Backyard Rainbow Wedding: Jason & Gwen
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.
Pretty Pastel DIY Wedding: Joey & Mike
January 14, 2013
I'm definitely not only of those girly girls. I favour a bold and modern aesthetic over pretty pastels any day. But Joey & Mike's wedding slayed me when it landed in my inbox recently. And 'pretty' is really the only word I can use to best describe what I saw.
Tattoos & Toadstools: Toni & Colin
December 7, 2012
Tattoos, tears and a seriously cute couple. Toni & Colin's wedding is what my dreams are made of. These guys are THE perfect Rock n Roll couple and they're wedding slays me. Plus they had Sassy of Assassynation as their wedding photographer so they instantly go way up in the cool stakes with me!
The wedding was held at The Quay, Musselburgh, on 10th November. "Colin and I met online what feels like a life time ago but wasn't all that long ago in the grand scheme of things", Toni began. "We spoke for a month or so online and then he made plans to come over from Northern Ireland to visit me in Edinburgh. 'I'll come for the weekend,' he said. Well, he arrived and he's yet to leave! We've lived together from day one and, including the night before the wedding, we are yet to spend one single night apart. It's a good job he makes me laugh as much as he does!"
Regula & Bruno’s Creative, Spooky & Wonderful Wedding (Part One)
July 4, 2011
"Regula & Bruno rock my world"...that's how photographer Assassynation introduced me to this bad ass couple when she sent me their wedding. The pair are from Belgium but wanted to be married in England. Their ceremony day was followed by a tea party reception and spooky photo shoot in an abandoned fairground (!) in their home country a few weeks later. Luckily for us all, this second part took place just last weekend and believe me, I'm going to be featuring it just as soon as the photos are ready!
But for now, it's all about the ceremony...
Regula & Bruno’s Afternoon Tea Party Reception (Part Two)
August 10, 2011
Remember Regula & Bruno's spooky Rye wedding? Well they're back, not once but twice today! I'm kicking of this Wednesday morn' with the Belgian leg of their wedding and this afternoon I'll be sharing their creepy wedding portraits taken at an abandoned fairground! Originally from Belgium the couple were keen to have a tea party reception in their home city for all their friends & family that didn't come over to the UK for their ceremony.
Writer Regula told me all about their tea party. "We knew what we wanted to do for our wedding reception immediately. Because we were getting married in England we wanted our friends from Belgium to feel like they were in the UK. We decided we were going to do a Wedding afternoon tea."
1950s, Rockabilly and Polkadot Wedding: Carrie & Neil
March 12, 2014
Carrie and Neil had a red and white wedding with rockabilly and polka dot touches! The day was held at Highbury Hall in Birmingham and was full of DIY décor. "We would like to think we were far more relaxed, friendly and laid-back than other wedding we have been to", began the bride. "So many weddings we have been to seem so stiff and uptight as a whole. We wanted a fun party atmosphere with a live band playing lots rockabilly, plenty of food for people to stuff their faces, and encouraged dancing until your feet dropped off. The word 'formal' never entered our vocabulary."
A Low Key London Wedding for just £600: Rain & Attila
November 9, 2012
I love a detail-heavy wedding as much as the next blogger, but you know what, it's usually the unapologetically low key and budget weddings that pull at my heartstrings the most. Rain & Attila spent just £600 on their wedding and the day couldn't have been more perfect.
