Childhood Sweethearts

I have been looking forward to seeing Hannah & Alex’s wedding ever since I saw their school yard engagements and the bridal shoot to be used for their stag/hen/bachelor/ette parties invites. I first spoke to Hannah about 6 months ago when she forwarded me some of the work of her sister and photographer, Kelty and I have been nuts about it every since.  I have been lucky enough to become good online friends with Kelty so I was over the moon when she sent me a sneak peek of the wedding photographs after the day.

An Old Fashioned Love Affair

Anna & Ryan’s wedding was marvelously simple, rustic, old-fashioned romantic affair. Think prairie flowers, wheat, fabric streamers, ball jars and parasols. The round barn that was host to the event belongs to Anna’s family.

Anna’s dress was made by her Mum and was closely based on a design by an independent Italian designer named Mirit Weinstock who sends her clothes out to girls around the world to wear in self portraits to promote her clothing (check out the ‘birthday’ video on her homepage – it’s fab). Her hairpiece was by the always fabulous Which Goose.

An Old Fashioned Love Affair

👰

Anna & Ryan's wedding was marvelously simple, rustic, old-fashioned romantic affair. Think prairie flowers, wheat, fabric streamers, ball jars and parasols. The round barn that was host to the event belongs to Anna's family. Anna's dress was made by her Mum and was closely based on a design by an independent Italian designer named Mirit Weinstock who sends her clothes out to girls around the world to wear in self portraits to promote her clothing (check out the 'birthday' video on her homepage - it's fab). Her hairpiece was by the always fabulous Which Goose. After the ceremony (in which both Anna & Ryan only had one attendant each) there was a picnic lunch and after the picnic, everyone went to the couple's studio (they are also both photographers) to mingle. The reception was in a place called the Forum... an old theatre converted into a bar/event hall which was right across the street from their apartment/studio. Photographer Mysi described the reception vibe as being very much like a movie: amazing people... loud, happy and not a bit of drama. there was a moment during the last song of the night where about 30 of us danced while joined together in an enormous group hug (hard to breathe in there) and screamed the song ... when i realized i should be taking a photo of the spectacle, but i was too happy to watch from the outside. the best part of that was it wasn't forced or annoying or drunken or awkward. it was just joyous. Thanks so much to Mysi for all her hard work on this feature - she has also given me a sneak peek of her own wedding (they just got back from their honeymoon themselves) and it is beyond adorable so I hope I will be able to share those too soon!

Hawaiian Kitsch

Erica & Simon had a Hawaii wedding fit to bursting with gorgeousness. Erica’s stunning dress was flown all the way from England (woohoo) for the event and was custom made for her by her sister-in-law. The couple had a tiki bar, a vintage Vespa, uber cute cupcakes and their bridesmaids all in different candy coloured dresses, all with added to their Hawaii kitsch theme!

Orange.

Rachel & Geordie are a little bit too gorgeous to keep to myself and the orange motif that runs throughout the images – from her shoes and flowers to the Mini (bought by Rachel’s Mother a week before the wedding!) and the JCB (!) – is just too damn awesome. The wedding took place in Rachel’s parents’ back yard and really had the stylish vintage vibe going on.

Rachel’s stunning 1920’s inspired dress was custom made by her good friend (and clothing designer) Mireille Stettler and Geordie complimented her perfectly with his casual look.

Thanks to the gorgeous and super talented Brittany for sending me these!

Adventure Playground Of Fun

Carrie & Brian got hitched on the snow-capped Mt. Hood at The Timberline Lodge. Carrie’s amazing dress, cashmere-and-organza ruffle bolero and hair piece with chenille dot netting, feathers and flowers were all designed by Elizabeth Dye (who I have featured a few times before) an independent clothing designer in Portland, Oregon.

Their wedding was a total adventure playground of fun. To get to the venue all guests had to snow cat up steep snow slopes of Mt. Hood in a near white out snow fall. Photographers Shawn & Bonnie went on to tell me more:

Beyond that the night was full of quirk and personal style, from their unique toasts that involved in-unison speaking to their wedding vows that were a written haiku read line by line by each person in attendance.

Thanks for sharing guys!

Quirky.

Hannah & Gavin, a self professed quirky couple has a stylishly unconventional wedding to reflect their personalities. From Heather’s amazing custom designed shoes to the men in their traditional kilts and the uber cool portraits, nothing about this wedding can be accused of being ‘ordinary.’

Thanks to Brianna & Ewan for sharing these gorgeous wedding!
