Although Laetitia and Franck aren’t planning to get married, they wanted to do something special for their four year anniversary and so decided to stage a shoot with cake and dessert designer Lauren Delpech of
French Made, London. Being born and raised in Marseille, where Laetitia and Franck live, Lauren decided it would be the perfect place for the session. They chose the region of Le Panier because of its winding, hilly streets and Les Goudes Calanques as the stunning beach backdrop.
“A seaside themed photo shoot there may sound totally cliché, but with my team of fab suppliers, we worked with nautical symbols such as anchors, wheels, boats, sea shells”, wrote Lauren, “Laetitia and Franck are into tattooed and live an alternative life, so we included these influences too”.
Laetitia wore two glamorous Elsa Gary dresses and one that was a vintage gown she already owned. Her incredible headpiece was made by GG’s Pin-Up Couture and was made from a small wooden boat and red, cream and blue flowers. AMAZING.

As a girl who's more than slightly obsessed with weddings and photography, there's pretty much nothing more thrilling to me than discovering new (to me) wedding photographer that is INCREDIBLE. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does I feel like I've won the wedding-blogging-lottery. And don't even get me started on what happens when I discover a videographer with as much talent as this. Actual tears people, there were actual tears.
Flower Beard Bridals with Harnaam Kaur

Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which meant she started growing a beard from aged 11. Battling to remove her hair every day, and bullied at school, she started to self harm and considered suicide. Harnaam is now a body-confidence and anti-bullying activist and she fully embraces her unique look and hopes to encourage others to do the same. So when this bridal shoot using Harnaam as the model was submitted to me I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement!

A Trailer Trash Bridal Shoot with a Vintage Airstream
August 25, 2012
"Ever since I spent time travelling from Nashville to San Francisco last Autumn, I've benn obsessed with wanting to recreate vintage Americana!" wrote stylist Lynsey Le Keux. "This summer I had the pleasure of making it happen. I got together with some serious wedding industry talent including Sassy of Assassynation and Jo of The Couture Company. Our theme was 'trailer trash chic' which basically meant coney neck beers, dust-caked American cars, sweat smudged make up and broad blue skies. The aim was to portray unique bridal beauty against a backdrop of pure gritty trash... We wanted to inspire bridal styling outside of tradition and show our customers that they don't have to follow convention to rock a wedding - bridal beauty is subjective and one thing all the collaborators agreed on was how much we loved customers who did things their way."
