Mad Hatter Rock n Roll Bride ~ Candy Floss, Beach Huts & The Great British Seaside

It’s that time of immense excitement for me again, when I finally get to share with you a ‘lil project I’ve been busying myself with behind the scenes. Unbelievably this shoot has been in the pipeline for over a year but it’s only now that I’ve had the time to get it all organised properly!

The Photographer
I first met Eliza Claire just over a year ago at the very first ‘Rock n Roll Bride meet’. We met in a teeny cocktail bar in central London. We drank cosmopolitans and mojitos and talked way into the night about business, photography and changing the face of the UK wedding industry…and look how far we’ve come in only a year! At this first meeting we talked about doing a photo shoot together and would you believe it’s actually taken this long to get it together. However, as always, the wait was so worth it as within the past 12 months we’ve got to know so many more amazing people in the industry, a few of which we asked along to join in the fun.

A Diy-Heavy, Cotton Candy-Eating, Vivienne Westwood-Wearing, Jeans-Definitely Allowed, Handmade, Carnival Themed Wedding

You might remember these two from their ‘Coney Island Cool’ engagement session. Well as suspected, their wedding was just as amazing!

Jess & Bryan’s is my favourite kind of wedding. I love the fashion, I love the style, I love the amazing diy touches and the whole chilled out and creative vibe of the day. “We really wanted usto be present in everything that was a part of our day” the couple told me. “We tried to make, and do, as much as we could for our wedding. This meant enlisting the help of our talented and wonderful friends and family to make paper cupcake toppers, straw flags, escort cards, wooden signs and much, much more!  We all got together the day before the wedding to set up the entire tent and yard and then relaxed with a night of BBQing and laughing. 

For the few outside vendors we did hire, we made sure that we worked with amazingly talented people who obviously care deeply about their craft, like our photographer Lindsey and caterer Kim. Some of the more unique characteristics of our wedding include an outside secular ceremony performed by a former judge and environmental activist, handmade everything, jeans allowed, vegetarian pigs in a blanket, a cotton candy machine, tattoos, mini birthday cakes for special guests and a hand made vintage inspired wedding dress. The best compliments we’ve received about our wedding have been, ‘Best wedding yet!’ and ‘It was so you!’ ”

I flipping LOVE it!

Prop City

Funfairs may have been ‘done’ in terms of what the cool kids say is ‘in’ but who gives a monkey’s about what they think? It’s the same with balloons, candy floss and even sun flair…pah I say to that! The funfair is the perfect backdrop for an engagement shoot – fun, colourful, playful and prop city! I want a photo shoot in at a fun fair in fact. Any offers?!
