One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel
one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.

I promise you this isn’t a staged photo shoot, it’s really Jason and Aimee’s wedding! Are these guys the actual coolest or what!? They were hitched in secret in Vegas last October.
“We met at a coffee shop where I was working”, explained Aimee. “Jason has just moved back to Brisbane. Our wedding was themed around old school Hollywood glam… but in Vegas!”
“We were inspired by the desert and the appeal of the intimacy of just the two of us. We loved that it was just about us and we loved walking the streets of Vegas at night, madly in love.”
The ceremony was held at The Little White Chapel. “Elvis sang us down the aisle. The room was perfect! Like something out of a Tarantino film… And it was just us, best friends, promising one another that we would no longer have to walk alone.”
Alex and Brandi were married Historic Chelsea Train Depot in Michigan. Their wedding took place in October and had a rustic, Autumnal vibe.
“Our official wedding theme was ‘Priscilla Presley meets Downton Abbey'”, said the bride. “Were both pretty goofy people and our life together is light-hearted, relaxed and easy going. We’re not party animals, and we prefer an intimate night at the pub over a raging house party, so right away we knew we wanted our guests to feel that. Something with laser lights, crystals, and traditions was not going to work for us.”
“We wanted our wedding space to feel warm, cosy, relaxed, simple, and tasteful. We equate cosy with old and dusty so when I found the train depot and saw original wood floors, train ticket windows, and twinkling Christmas lights, I was in love. We kept a neutral colour theme because we are not really ‘bright pops of colour’ people. The one colour we both love is duck egg blue, so that was really the only brighter colour we used.”
