Just The Two Of Them

Terri & Sebastian eloped in Barcelona, just the two of them plus David McNeil the photographer (click here for the photographs) and Claire McDonnell the make up artist…here are their vows to each other.
What is it with all the videos nearly making me cry today?! I was under the impression my cold shell was impenetrable!

David was also featured on Wedding TV last Saturday and I totally forgot to share the link…go see him talking about his work, in particular Terri & Sebastian’s wedding here (approx 26 minutes in) Plus try to spot the me & husband as models in some of the photographs shown…hint my hair is brown!

London In The Rain

So after we left Vana & Damien yesterday, David (hard working as ever) headed off to London’s Southwark for a fabulously moody pre-wedding shoot! The rain may have been pouring, but David was able to capture the couple and their most glorious…and I have to say, the rain water on the ground does make for some amazing light.

David said:
After a pretty dismal day, some sun made it through the clouds, before clouding over and pouring with rain as we started the shoot.

However, I’m never one to be defeated, so after we arrived in Southwark I found a rather interesting empty car park, a rough round the edges theatre bar, a nicely lit railway tunnel and grimy door to use as backdrops.

I usually reschedule if the weather looks bad, but as you can see from tonight’s shoot, a bit of rain doesn’t mean the images have to suffer!

Our Winners – The First Meeting

I just got back from meeting out wedding photography competition winners with my friend and photographer David McNeil. Vana & Damien are even cooler in real life than they are on paper. We got on like a house on fire and spent about 2 hours chatting non-stop!

I knew Vana and I would get on as we have chatted on the phone a number of times (for like an hour at a time…we’re both big chatterboxes apparently!) but it was great to meet them both and to see how excited they are about their upcoming wedding. The couple have some amazing, unique and totally rock n roll (Damien is in a band after all) ideas and I can’t wait to see them all in November. 
So…my next task, my wedding outfit! To hat or not to hat?

We will be meeting the couple again in the next couple of months for their pre-wedding shoot, hopefully including some shots in the S&M Cafe! Didn’t I tell you they were bloody cool?

Here we all are drinking wine in the middle of the day and chatting all things wedding, and the photo of David – I took that..I’m pretty sure I’ve missed my calling!

ps if you want to still enter the contest to win the gorgeous little diamond necklace, you have one day left. Contest will be closing midnight tomorrow and I will be drawing the winner on Sunday..so get your nominations in if you want to be in with a chance!

A Geeky, Offbeat, Tea Party, Country Engagement Shoot

I love featuring my friend David McNeil’s photography and I think his work definitely makes me cool by-proxy. David has really been shooting some fabulous work recently, his use of lighting and composition is second to none. I am proud to be his friend (you can pay me later hun!) and to share his work with you all.

Rosalie & Jamie actually discovered David through Rock n Roll Bride so I am even more chuffed than usual to share this shoot.  I am absolutely gaga over those shots with the heart shaped umbrella, I think I need one of those in my life! Check out David’s blog for more about this shoot and Rosalie’s uber cute ‘Geeky, Offbeat, Tea Party, Country’ wedding planning blog for more about this couple and their wedding plans.  Its defiantly going to be an awesome, quitenesially British (with a rocking’ twist) wedding!

He Does It Again

It’s no secret that I am totally biased when it comes to my friend David’s photography.  I am totally loving his newest engagement shoot, and in fact even more so because the couple discovered David and his brilliance through Rock n Roll Bride! I should defiantly be taking some sort of commission for such amazing photographs, don’t you think?!
