I don’t think I’ve ever featured a wedding from Lithuania on the blog before, but I’m pleased to say that’s all about to change…and if there are more Lithuanian weddings as awesome as this one I want to share them as well please!
Alma & Aleksandras’ wedding was sent to me by their planner
Laura Vagonė. “I met these two six months ago, both of them are photographers so wanted to have wedding in some special and at an interesting place. I‘ve offered them an old carousel park and they loved the idea.”
“The ceremony was held at 8am and officiated by the the father of the groom. We had amazing party and the guests were invited to try carousel. They were happy as kids, trust me. We also had a live band playing the whole time. Everything was so great that I‘d like to share that colourful joy with you!”
Well I’m very pleased you did Laura!
The wedding had a blue colour scheme which was reflected in both the bride and groom’s outfits. Alma wore a second hand dress which she found on eBay with cute flats and a headpiece, both by
Agne Giedriene (she also changed into Nike trainers later in the day) and the most amazing twitter-inspired tights by Tattoo Socks on Etsy. Aleksandras wore a second hand suit with a blue bow tie he was given one Christmas.
Their were also handmade touches throughout the wedding including the cake, the ceremony décor and the flowers, which were all put together by the groom’s Mother.
The wedding day finished with a boat ride and the couple jumping into a nearby lake! Rock n Rooooll!
Smitten! Thank you so much to Alma & Aleksandras, their planner Laura Vagonė and their photographers Fotopastelė for sharing these with us today.

In the 18 months of their engagement she spent hours crafting and painstakingly putting together their vintage and craft themed day. "I wouldn't change a thing!" she explained. "We had so much fun planning the day, we did everything from choosing the playlists to writing our vows and designing the picnic menus."

Aimee & James were married on The Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, Ca. The day was a 1950′s inspired vintage one with a carnival vibe.

James proposed on new years and the stroke of midnight.
Off the Hook Carnival Eye Candy
November 17, 2009
I knew Amy & Jesse's wedding would be off-the-hook with it's intense awesomeness as soon as I saw and blogged their engagements a while back. Surely a couple this offbeat and rockin' couldn't have anything but a super crazy, kooky, inspirational and incredible wedding day could they? However, even I was blown off my chair when I laid eyes on these little beauties. Their DIY, carnival wedding was not only ridiculously creative and awe-inspiring but the couple themselves literally looked like a candy covered explosion of kick ass attitude and fun all over! (By the way I fully realise that my explanation of my thoughts on this wedding probably make little or no grammatical and linguistical sense - however my intense excitement over getting to blog these appears to have rendered by logical brain dysfunctional!) Got it? Right...on with the show...
A HUGE Rock n Roll thank you to Marina of Red Heart Photography for sending these over. I couldn't wait to blog these (as always) and so the photos below are actually only part 1 & 2 of her posts. Go check out her blog over the next few weeks for even more eye candy!
1950s Rockabilly Wedding at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum
October 11, 2015
Patrick and Hazel love the 1950s and rockabilly style so they wanted to bring this into their day. When watching Grease one day, the bride also decided she needed a carousel at the wedding! Luckily they found Blists Hill Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum in Shropshire which came complete with a fun fair!
Pinwheels & Pugs: An Old-Timer Funfair Wedding
a-Stone Wedding & Lifestyle
April 18, 2017
Sandra and Hendrik were together for 12 years before they were married. They met in August 2004 at a funfair and distinctly remember the smell of popcorn filling the air. They wanted to recreate their first meeting at their wedding, so decided it should be funfair themed. They also wanted their wedding day to be a celebration with their loved ones while listening to great music and, of course, with the smell of popcorn in the air again.

Carnival weddings always make me smile. Jenna & Tommy's wedding is no different.
I thought I'd share another wedding with you that I did this summer. The bride's last name was Morrissey which made me instantly think of The Smiths (one of my most favorite bands ever). Jenna and Tommy were married in Providence, RI in Roger Williams Park. Their inspiration was that of a 1950's carnival complete with carousel, penny candy and popcorn. The bride stole away during the reception to change into a pink vintage dress to surprise her new husband. Their first dance? "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths. Perfectly sweet.
Thanks to Olivia for sharing this and making me smile (again - she shoot the Married by a Moose wedding!)
The Beatles, Dr Seuss, Pom Poms & Holga!
October 27, 2009
A DIY wedding with Holga images? Oh hell yeah baby!
Shelly & Jeff had a wedding that perfectly epitomised them. From the turquoise and orange pom poms and the personalised 'All You Need is Love' M&Ms to their friend playing 'Blackbird' by The Beatles and Dr Seuss' 'Oh The Places We Will Go' as gifts. From the sparrow salt & pepper shakers as a cake topper and succulents as centrepieces to the their customised 'lunchboxes' by Pink Avocado..oh yes yes yes! Shelly's beautiful dress was by Linda Asaf and I love it all!
Thanks to Katherine for sending these over to me. I am in lurrrve

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.
