Perfect Picnic Wedding

Sarah & Kevin’s darling backyard wedding took place in a friend’s back garden in Arlington, Texas. The vintage-inspired theme with robin egg blue touches made for the perfect, personal picnic wedding. The day was styled by Revolution Garden and several of the wedding accessories (including the invitation, all hair accessories, the sign-in painting, and the decorated hat box) were hand-made by them as well. The whimsical bouquets made of all off-white and vanilla flowers and the boutonnieres were created by The T Shop. The bridesmaids wore dresses from Anthropologie and the bride’s dress was put together with thrift store shopping including Buffalo Exchange

2009 – The Year That Was {Part Two}

The Cimbo Limbo posts continue with part deux of the grand review of 2009. Brace yourselves for the July to December extravaganza people!

♥ Jenny & Johnny were way to stylish and way to cool to exclude from this list. If I had a face like hers I’d certainly be rocking the girl-hawk hair do. A Ring bearing ninja, the motorbike portraits and the tattoo-inspired illustration guestbook all add to the mad style

♥ Teneisha & Chris’ crazy-gorgeous LasVegas wedding was nothing short of epic. That dress!

♥ Something a bit different for Rock n Roll Bride here, but how could I resist those faces?

2009 – The Year That Was {Part One}

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

Alice in her Wonderland

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!

The Enchanted Forest

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!

A Wonderland Wedding

Hello my gorgeous girls (and guys!) sorry I didn’t post at all last night but I am feeling rough like sandpaper…I think I’m coming down with something which is highly inconvenient as this weekend is our one year anniversary!How absolutely ridiculous! It has gone so quick!  So similarly, the posts will be slim to none over this weekend as we are off to Brighton to eat fish n chips, go on rollercoasters, walk down the pier and probably get horribly drunk (again!)  We are staying in a super swanky hotel called The Grand which we got for free as an apology from our first wedding venue that cancelled out wedding 3 months before the wedding day (see, things always turn out alright in the end!)

Just before I go, I simply must share this amazing ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed wedding send to me this morning by Adrienne (who blogs over here)  I am absolutely in love with this girl’s style and their super fun, super colourful wedding full of personaltouches and cute little details (seriously the cake made of flowers – amazing!) Enjoy these, and I will see you all when I get back…
Much Love!
