Åsa & Daniel’s Vintage-Find, Barcelona Shoot

Daniel and Åsa’s Barcelona photo shoot was all about the details, “because to me it’s the little details that make the huge difference and I wanted to show them those little details” Spanish photographer Inés explained. The original theme and idea for this shoot came from Inés herself to show couples that capturing the personal details and portraits beautifully is what’s super important in wedding photography – even if that means dressing up again for a post-wedding shoot – the perfect excuse if you ask me!

The shoot took place at the picturesque Le Cucine Mandarosso in Barcelona, a super charming Italian restaurant in theheart of the city. “The place is full with vintage finds, from a huge candy stand, through a fab fridge to little ruby red martini bottle,” Inés told me. “The tableware is vintage, found in different street markets by the stylist. We tied little bows around the cutlery with ribbon that I kept from some delicious chocolate. But the most special touch on the table are the fantastic cupcakes that Jenny from I love Muffins specially made for our photo shoot and that substitute the classic wedding cake. Vera (the stylist) is completely crazy about them and swears that Jenny’s cupcakes are the very best ones she ever tried.”

The bride wore a vintage skirt that cost just 80€ from a vintage shop in the city that was closing down and a simple and cheap t-shirt customized with leather handmade flowers by Manón, who also handmade the hair piece and the sash. Her shoes were just 25€ from Stradivarius and her jewellery was from Bijoux.

Sean & Nicola love the great outdoors so that’s exactly where they headed for their engagement shoot. A local country park provided the perfect setting for this sweet, fun and romantic photo shoot. Afterwards the couple got dressed up and headed back to the city for some hilarious photo booth style shots – these are my favourites!

City Chic Fashionista Wedding

Lee & Rose got married in Liverpool in a super duper stylish way. Rose’s outfit is literally off-the-hook! Have you ever seen a bride look so damn funky? Plus (and you’re going to love this) it is all from the British high street! Be sure to check out the full list of where each item was found after the photographic goodness. I am just mad about those tights…

“There was no real theme as such, but the sort of couple we are means that we wanted something relaxed, informal and fun” Lee , the groom, told me “We wanted a simple wedding, we wanted to wear the outfits we wanted, we wanted to pay for everything ourselves, and more importantly, we wanted our friends and family to come and have a good time, not feel like they had to behave in a manner they normally wouldn’t, i.e. no strict seating arrangements, not worrying about which knife to use to cut the bread roll, etc. We’re not show-offs, and we’re not millionaires, and we have our own sense of style, so we couldn’t see the point in all this so-called ‘traditional’ excess that means the marriage starts off with £30,000 worth of debt! It just wouldn’t be us.”

Light-hearted & Personal

I love  a quirky London wedding just as much as the next person so I whooped with joy when Connie & Jonny’s was send my way. “We wanted to bring all our friends and family together for a massive party to celebrate us getting hitched” the bride began. “We kept certain traditions – getting everyone to sit down and have a big feed, and speeches etc, but we weren’t keen on all the flowery formal bits, so to keep things lighthearted and personal we had the lovely ukelele band.  We put our friends and family on a routemaster bus back to the reception (at Lena Restaurant)  Amazing food, great party space downstairs with loads of champagne.  A friend drove my dad and I to the town hall in his VW camper van, and took Jonny and I (with music booming, a healthy supply of champagne) back to the reception (we drove back via regent’s park and stopped off in the sunshine to take it all in). Not really up for flowery delicate invites, we got Hanway print centre to print us some bright orange postcards. Jonny’s dad made the wedding cake and my mom and friends organised the flowers.”
