Are you ready to have your mind blown? Well just look at this dress shot – what a brave bride – and yes, it was all her idea! “I got my inspiration for the dress flying photo from a picture from the Brazilian designer
Karlla Girotto,” explained Marie. “The picture was from her summer 2007 campaign and it showed a parade of her dresses hanging on balloons with the models in front of them.”
And for those of you doubters who love to scream “Photo Shop!” at every opportunity (I know you’re out there!) photographer
Danilo Siqueira used super thin fishing wire to keep the dress tied to the ground and then released the balloons with the dress hooked onto them.
Wedding photographers, the bar has been raised!
Anyway, as soon as I saw that shot on Danilo’s website I knew I wanted to feature the full wedding… and would you believe, it only got better with every image.
The celebration was held at
Espaço Cantareira in São Paulo, Brazil. The couple wanted a colourful, fun and carefree wedding and they certainly achieved that. The bride wore (well, when it wasn’t flying in the air) a dress by Marca Pó de Arroz and they DIY’ed as much as possible including all the reception decor and the stationery. They also used local suppliers as much as they could.
“The pictures were our favourite thing about our wedding”, Marie concluded. “We’re so pleased we had Danilo to capture our day!”
Thank you to Marie & Pedro and their photographer

A Quirky Brazilian Wedding Planned in Just Two Months: Juliana & Tomas
May 24, 2012
Organised in just two months, Juliana & Tomas' wedding was held in Brazil on the very date that they first met. The bride explains, "Tomas & I met two years ago through a mutual friend. At that time, Tomas lived in New York and I lived in Sao Paulo. In December 2009, Tomas went to Brazil to work and our friend invited him to spend New Year's Eve in a house I'd rented at the beach. We spent 6 days together and, two months later, we met again, but this time in New York. We started a long-distance relationship, which lasted just 4 months, because I decided to come to New York. My plan was to spend a season in New York, study and invest in our relationship. Back then, we were very uncertain about our relationship's future, but now we have no doubt we made the best decision."

Mr & Mrs Tattooboy’s Heavily Tattooed, Ass Kickin’ Rockabilly Wedding
January 7, 2011
Do you remember Mr & Mrs Tattooboy? The hot tattooed couple behind one of my favourite ever engagement sessions? Well check it out - they got hitched and I've got the exclusive on their killer wedding. When the couple first met, Kori was a cheerleader and Matt was a rocker and a tattooed artist. They soon fell in love and Kori starting getting just as much ink as her man!
"Kori & Matt’s aka Mr. & Mrs. Tattooboy, have this incredible rockabilly style & then some!!!" photographer Christina told me. "When I asked Kori about the details of her wedding she just told me she wanted it to be different from the normal-cheesy-blah type weddings, this made me really happy that she wasn’t giving in to what everyone else in the world was doing! Their unusual story & love for tattoos & rockabilly style was inspiration enough for these two lovers to plan their wedding."
1970s Inspired Backyard Barbecue Wedding: Emily & Chris
March 14, 2013
Ahh Emily & Chris' Florida nuptials is what my wedding dreams are made of. Getting ready in the Hard Rock Hotel (my spiritual home for sure) this achingly cool pair had their beautiful wedding at Ybor City Museum Garden in Tampa. Emily wore the Greenbow lace gown by BHLDN and Miu Miu shoes, while Chris kept it casual yet chic in a checked shirt and a vintage velvet jacket combo. The 1970s is an era that many might feel should be left back with the flares, disco and Woodstock hippies, but I'm am here to tell you the exact opposite. How bloody cool are these two?!
Insane Italian Vintage Circus Wedding: Michelangelo & Francilla
September 3, 2013
Unlike so many Italian weddings that they'd been to before, Michelangelo and Francilla wanted a day that was big, ridiculous and most of all fun! They went for a vintage circus theme, and oh boy, they really did go all out on the theme! Francilla told me all about it, "In Italy it’s quite impossible to have a different wedding and not do everything traditionally. It’s so hard to get away from the 'rules' that everyone says you have to obey, but we worked hard to make sure we did! We would have never been happy to marry in this way, and luckily our families knew it!"
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!"
