I’m pretty sure there’s a little child in all of us who get excited when a Disney film comes on the TV. I personally can’t think of a much better lazy Saturday afternoon movie than Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid or Beauty & the Beast! Come on, admit it, you’re with me right?
So you can imagine my girlish elation when this retro Disney inspired bridal shoot landed on my desk. “Whilst spending a fun filled day at Disneyland and watching all the young couples hand in hand in the place where dreams come true, the inspiration just came to me”, explained florist Jacqueline of
J Morgan Flowers. “What could sum up young love better than Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their everlasting love?”
“Not one to procrastinate I called Aviva at Kiss the Planner (whilst in-line for Thunder Mountain) and pitched the idea to her. It didn’t take us long to gather up tons of inspirations from dresses, shoes, suitcases, vintage, candy and of course mouse ears!!”
Doesn’t this shoot just fill your heart with joy?! I’d personally love to see some Disney inspiration creeping into alternative weddings (I’m not taking cheesy fairytale castle weddings here!) Who’s with me?
Thanks to Jacqueline and her team for sharing this with us today.

Retro Pin Up Valentines Lovelies
February 6, 2010
With the day of hearts, flowers and lurrrve fast approaching, I have been inundated with Valentine's themed submissions, however this retro/pin up shoot from Jen Will may well be one of my utter favourites.
The shoot took place in her own kitchen which was the perfect setting for the baking theme. "This is part of the reason I love my apartment." Jen tells us "It is the coolest apartment ever, and my love for it is part of the reason I have yet to join the adult world of home ownership. It has a bathroom that would probably rent out as a large bedroom in New York City and a classic stove that came straight from the original Be Witched TV show. No matter where I live in the future, I will always love this place. I am so glad I got to document it in such a special way!"
I have to agree... and seeing these really makes me want to get my arse in gear and decorate our house! Thanks to Jen for sharing these.
Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Miller’s Wedding
January 8, 2016
So I haven't actually got the scoop of the century, sharing unseen photos from Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller's wedding... but I've got the next best thing! This shoot, photographed and styled by Claire Macintyre Photography, has got to be one of the closest homages to this iconic wedding that I've ever seen!
Quirky & Kitsch Retro Wedding Inspiration
July 4, 2012
Vintage weddings are still all the rage right now, but sometimes it's nice to see this trend in a different style. Which is why this shoot sent over by some Dallas based wedding suppliers and Nine Photography got me very excited indeed. They wanted to share the more retro, kitschy and quirky side of the vintage trend... and I love it!
The Little Mermaid Girls
I Heart Weddings
December 15, 2015
There's been all sorts of uproar in the press about Ariel having given blonde hair (shock horror!) in the Little Mermaid reboot that's set to hit the silver screen in 2017... but imagine if they made Eric a girl! How amazing would that be!? OK so that'd probably not going to happen in Hollywood, but it did at Fremantle’s South Beach, Western Australia!
An Edgy & Urban Bridal Shoot
August 8, 2012
This shoot was set up for Bow Wood Florist, based in Forney, a small town just outside of Dallas. They wanted some edgier images to really show modern brides what they can do. They created the bouquet but allowed photographer Britney of Tucker Images to let her imagination run wild with the styling and location of the shoot.
Love Rocks: Adorable and Alternative Valentines Bridal Shoot
February 14, 2014
Happy day of LOVE! What could be a better way to start off this most romantic of celebrations than a Valentine's inspired bridal shoot... with a twist (of course!)?
There are so many touches that I love in this set of photos - the hay bales with the hearts on, the colourful DIY fans or the heart garlands would make for incredible ceremony backdrops. There are some seriously sweet buffet table ideas and the gold and yellow tablescape is a really lovely and original take on the theme.
Janis Joplin Inspired Retro Picnic Elopement
September 20, 2014
There are plenty of wedding inspiration shoots being featured on wedding blogs and in the magazines, but there's a distinct lack of same sex models for my liking! Which is why when this shoot from Six Hearts Photography came in, I was thrilled!
90s Grunge Meets Disney Wedding Ideas
Tub of Jelly
May 30, 2017
Well, those are two things I never thought I'd be putting together but, as I'm sure you know, when it comes to alternative weddings nothing is off limits! You know what though, 90s grunge and Disney are both totally my jam!
