Roni and David had their first baby, Quintessa, a few months ago. So when their friend, pro photographer Mysi of
Soda Fountain Photography asked if they’d like do a shoot inspired by their love of music, they jumped at the chance to get some gorgeous photos of themselves and their new addition.
The shoot took place at
Honky Tonk BBQ Garden, in Chicago. Roni wore a selection of handmade dresses and headpieces. There were stringed instruments everywhere, harmonica favours, a rocking horse and bathtub that they stood in! The vintage furniture was perfect for displaying the gorgeous cakes, flowers and paper good created by some awesome local wedding vendors.
“Roni and David actually had a wedding shortly after this shoot, but because it was going to be so small and their little family was so big with love, I wanted to do something fun for them”, Mysi wrote. “They are both musicians (the kind that play everything), so we infused some instruments and a little Stevie Nicks feel to the whole thing. I told everyone not to smile at me, but there were some slip ups and it was perfect. I love everything.”

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."
The Great Gatsby
April 4, 2015
This pretty Great Gatsby inspired wedding shoot is the perfect way to ease you into the long weekend. I don't really feature styled wedding shoots on the blog any more (because, let's face it, real weddings are usually way better!) but I loved the use of colour and the elegant, yet totally reproducible, details in this one so much!

A Most Curious Wedding Fair – April 16th 2011
February 7, 2011
Rebecca started her business, A Most Curious Party, whilst she planned her 2008 wedding (It was a beauty! I blogged it here.) Her vintage styling company has gone from strength to strength in the last couple of years, however now she's going one step further and planning a bridal show with a difference!
She explains, "I was totally disheartened by the barren landscape of boring wedding suppliers on offer to do my husband-to-be and I justice on our big day. Since then things have utterly changed for the better and there are so many great designer, makers, florists, vintage dress companies, photographers, stationers, you name it, on the scene who have changed the face of the wedding industry, not to mention the bloggers like the one only Kat from the one and only Rock n Roll Bride whose influence is immeasurable. Similarly, now, there are vintage wedding fairs popping up around the country and this can also, only be a good thing. But I still feel we can go one further people! The experts putting together vintage wedding fairs are doing a grand job and full respect to them, but maybe, just maybe vintage isn’t enough."
A Very Non Wedding: Whit & Colby
September 3, 2012
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
June 30, 2015
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!
