As is customary at this time of year, I wanted to take some time to look back over the last 12 months and share with you some of my most favourite weddings, photo shoots and features. I think you’ll be hard pushed to not find something that makes you go ‘ooooh’ amongst this lot. Enjoy a-reminiscing! I’ll be back tomorrow with part 2 (there’s too much to narrow it down to just one post!) I’m also taking this slow blog-time (I like to refer to it as ‘Crimbo Limbo’ (!) to ponder my ideas and plans for Rock n Roll Bride in 2010. I’ll try and share my musings for the year ahead with you soon and would love for you to let me know what you think. It’s all about you dear reader after all…
♥ 2009 started off with a bang, with this ridiculously fabulous ‘Chicken Man and the Naked Chick’ shoot and wedding. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this before, you certainly won’t be disappointed
♥ This magician and his wife’s 1920s vintage styling was resoundly popular all over blog-land and may have even started the fake moustache revolution…it was certainly one of the first where I saw them used anyway.
♥ More vintage loving came my way with this ‘Vintage Snow’ wedding – complete with the bride looking every bit the glamorous lady in her circa 1947 Dior suit
♥ Still my favourite gown of the year..that multi-coloured tulle just sends me wild!
Remember this fabulous ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ shoot that I posted on Halloween that you all adored so much? Well Alley is BACK and better than ever! This month’s shoot (she organises a conceptual shoot every month) had a distinctive Alice in Wonderland theme, which, with the buzz around the new Tim Burton movie is sure to resonate popularity with you lot!
Sarah & Kevin’s North Carolina wedding has got to be one of the most detail-perfect enchanted woodland wonderlands I’ve ever seen, with branches even weaving and wondering throughout the rooms the couple got ready in. This stunning venue is Garden Retreat in Poplar.
At this outset this day had an air of magic about it. From the ever so slightly scary giant wooden insects, to the awesome ‘picture on the wall’ photo booth, to the amazingly detailed centrepieces – there is nothing about this wedding that doesn’t exude enchantment. The magic doesn’t stop there though – the couple actually DIY’ed the whole lot! Oh yes…That is quite frankly incredible and makes me feel terribly terribly inartistic.
The couple’s portraits in the woods are so perfect they look like they were shot on the set of a Hollywood movie – most probably directed by Tim Burton or written by Lewis Carroll. I just can’t get enough of the back lit images!
As always, thanks to Tara for sharing her incredible images with me. Eeeek..I looove them!
