An Autumnal Wedding & A Knitted Wedding Dress: Lina & Vygantas

So we’re definitely getting into the Autumn months now, so I thought I’d be nice to share some wedding inspiration if you’re having an autumn or winter wedding with you this afternoon.

Lina & Vygantas were married last November in Kaunas, Lithuania. The couple wanted their wedding theme to reflect the mood of the season and so added touches such as the apple bouquet and the bride’s beautiful knitted dress. Isn’t it a beauty?

A Sunday Kind of Love – Happy Halloween!

I hope you have a fabulous day dressing up, munchingtoo many sweets and bobbing for apples. I’m actually not a huge fan of Halloween – trick or treaters scare me and I don’t really like dressing up (except if it’s as a bride of course!) However, here’s my bit of Halloween-related inspiration for you all. How beautiful is the autumnal-themed table spread? The classy version of Halloween methinks!

“This shoot was an inspiration of the Fall season hitting,” photographer and stylish Andi explains, “I wanted this to be a “mysterious table for two” in a woodsy yet chic style for the festive time of year that brings all things sweet, orange and leaves falling. Handmade White Cupcake Liner Pom Poms, burlap table cloth, homemade meringues and vintage thrift store finds. This inspiration came to me while thinking of an airy, yet mysterious forestry picnic instead of the bright usual garden style we see in the Spring, this is my twist. All elements that I think of when the Halloween season approaches. I hope that this can inspire brides that are having weddings this fall as well as any other autumn events!”

Happy Halloween my dears!

A Bride in Boots

Oh Dan & Dayna you’ve made my day! What an awesome wedding and a fantastic story. I’ve been dying to share these all weekend! I knew this would be an awesome wedding in fact as soon a photographer Matthew told me that the bride was part of the Vaudeville Circus (you can see her in action here – far right in the white dress)

“I wanted to have a rock-n-roll wedding that felt like Dan and I had our hands all over” explained Dayna  “I spent a lot of time pouring over wedding blogs and getting inspiration from cool brides.  I picked themes that we both loved like reading, hence the book center pieces and framed quotes from our favorite authors, Fall and the month of October (the colors and flowers),  simple down home (and cheap!) mason jars as vases.  All of our music the entire day was hand picked and never ‘traditional’: wedding procession we had our friend play the ukulele, bridal march was Cat Powers “Sea of Love” (followed by The Honeydrippers “Sea of Love” for our first dance), our walk as husband and wife was Joey Ramone’s “Wonderful World”.  Our flower girls wore homemade tutu’s, leotards and ballet slippers. We had a drawing after dinner with silly gifts of our life so far (a DVD of the first movie we saw, a pint glass from the restaurant where we met, a dvd of “It’s a Wonderful Life” cuz we’re nerds and watch it every year…). It was a rockin’ day for sure!”

Outdoorsy Autumn Diy Wedding

Summer & Frank got married exactly a year after their first date. The wedding had an Autumn theme and was held at a local park. Their reception was at one of their favourite hang outs – Fatty’s in Astoria. “I started looking for parks in our area where we could also hold the reception.” Summer told me. “We’re both very casual and outdoorsy, so we didn’t want anything formal–we wanted the focus to be more on the happiness of the day. The cost for renting local parks is a shocking fraction of more formal venues, too, and you can bring in your own catering, which gives you more options for food. I’m a vegetarian, so that was important.”

Prettiness

My mind is a-whirring with reflections of 2009, my plans for 2010 and where the Rock n Roll Bride train might take me (read: us – you’re coming on that trip with me, right?) but fret not, I am still here sharing the prettiness I know you all adore until I come up with my masterplan…just hang tight.

Cassie & Bryce are cuteness. That is all.

Take a Bow

This autumn bridal shoot is too cute to resist. She’s like a little Alice in Wonderland with her teacup dress and that adorable over sized bow. I want that. I want to wear it everyday everday.

Most Haunted

This tattooed, converse bride and Doctor Who geek groom had a fabulous Halloween wedding in Southhampton, UK. The 1970’s inspired spiderweb bridesmaid dresses, the carousel, the Cadillac and the haunted house themed reception all made for a wedding to remember!

Autumn Leaves

Oh yes, yet another autumn/fall/Halloween wedding for you lucky lucky people, but this one couldn’t be further away in style from the last. Darby & Eric got married at Heritage Park in Dana Point California on October 3rd 2009 and the reception followed at Darby’s Parents home nearby with just some of their closest friends and family. A super personal, uber stylish affair the couple really went all out to make it their own. I am absolutely loving the autumn leaf bouquets and subtle Halloween theming around the event – not OTT, not crazy, just them.

Punpkin Carving. Autumn Leaves. Masquerade Ball.

Skye & Liam had a detail-perfect Halloween wedding in Cambridgeshire. The couple really went all out and even had a pumpkin carving competition for their guests. They suspected many people wouldn’t bother, but to their surprise and delight nearly every guest brought a personalised pumpkin to share! What a talking point huh?

Escape

So Autumn is most definitely here huh? Unlike over the pond where Autumn means long, warm evenings frolicking through sunbaked leaves – in the UK reality is often a cold, windy and rainy prelude to winter! Thank goodness we can escape back to longer summer evenings with gorgeous images like these…swoon!

Autumnal Engagement

Autumn is most definitely here isn’t it? Although it’s getting colder (and in the UK’s case much rainier) we do get some gorgeous colours and light at this time of year. San Francisco based JerryYoon was lucky enough to photograph the gorgeous Rosann & Josh frolicking in the autumn leaves for their recently engagement session. These images make me feel all together a little bit less blue about the impending season.

The Wedding Tree

I am so over the moon to be the first blog to bring you this amazing wedding. Paul & Cassie’s day really couldn’t be anywhere but Rock n Roll Bride though surely? From her cute cute dress by Carla Zampatti, to their kick ass tattoos – from the simply sweet ceremony site (just plastic chairs and autumnal leaves) to all the adorable personal touches (I am crazy in love with their thumb print wedding tree ‘guest book’.) There is in fact nothing I don’t love and I could go on with a big old list of everything I am swooning over right now. However it’s probably better for me just to share the photographic joy oui?

Shoes:  Witchery
Cake:  The Welsh Lady
Cupcakes:  Carousels
Decoration info: 
The wall/window decals, the owl figurines, Cassie’s hair flower, the paper forest animal masks, the noodle box tags, the clay “love” & “forever” tags on bottles all came from Etsy 
The mexican day of the dead dolls were found on Ebay.
The white lanterns and fairy light halo were from the glorious Ikea.
For the Vintage bottles, milk bottles, medicinal bottles the couple scouted Paddington Antique Markets.
All the pinecones, leaves and tree branches were collected from neighbourhood walks.
The Candy Buffet was a DIY job, the couple collected misc vases/jars & purchased the candy, lots of candy.
