A Theme Park Wedding: Shirley & Elijah
April 30, 2012
Shirley & Elijah love going to theme parks and Disneyland so when it came to choosing a theme for for their wedding it was the obvious choice. “Our wedding was full of vibrant colors,” the bride wrote. “We went for the overall theme of a theme park called ‘Shirlijahland’. Every aspect of the wedding played off this. Our food was an upscale version of carnival food and our flowers were inspired by wands, pin-wheels, and lollipops. My dress and the dresses of my bridesmaids were fun and whimsical. We wanted people to be blown away and to share in a part of our quirky personalities.”
The ceremony was held in
Mater Dolorosa Catholic Parish, with the reception that followed at Terra Gallery, an event space in San Francisco. The couple were able to completely decorate the venue as they liked which suited them perfectly! Origami and Chinese lanterns were hung from the ceiling, the tables all had individually styled centrepieces, and as night fell pink up-lighting was switched on to really add to the party atmosphere!
Gorgeous! Thank you to Shirley & Elijah and their photographer Caroline of Tinywater Photography for sharing these today.

Regula & Bruno’s Abandoned Fairground Wedding Portraits (Part Three)
August 10, 2011
So part one was spooky, part two was cute and part three is just...well...a whole other level! Could an abandoned fairground in Belgium possibly be the coolest photo shoot location ever?
"The day after our tea party reception we went on a adventure to an abandoned fairground that I used to visit as a child when it was still open," Regula told me. "I suddenly thought about it a few months ago and wondered what had become of it. I have some vivid childhood memories of it. Bruno and I wanted to go there as we love the creepy and romantic forgotten world feeling about it. We have a thing for the strangeness of old fairgrounds and fairs, hence the rock candy and candy apples at our reception. When I told our photographer Sassy of it she was so excited we decided to make a trip together."
Vegas-Inspired Wedding with Snazzy Suits, Sequins & All the Confetti!
April 29, 2018
Gemma's 'Suits and Sequins' summary of her wedding to Guy is very apt, as in true Sinatra style they did things their way. Their Peckham wedding, shot by megababe Devlin Photos, was emotional and incredible from start to finish, from that sparkly green wedding dress (swoon) to the 'Silly Old Beans' sign they were married under, and the story behind their couples' amazing portraits...
