Oh how I love the crazy, mad world that MangoRED create with their photography. Who else could come up with something so magical, hilarious, joyful and original!? Check out the styling...I have a total compulsion to dress up like a soya drink carton or wear an outfit to match my wallpaper right now...
Gothic, Fancy Dress, Halloween Wedding
March 22, 2010
I have been dreaming about blogging this wedding since October when photographer Caroline of the wonderful Tinywateremailed me to let me know she was off to shoot a Halloween, fancy-dress gothic themed wedding...and even before shooting the wedding, she knew I was going to love it. Well judging by the number of photographs I'm including in this post you could say she was pretty much bang on! I was lucky enough to have Rachel, the bride get in contact with me to share all the glorious details!
Latex, Tattoos, Piercings & Fancy Dress Make a FABULOUS UK Wedding!
February 2, 2010
I've got a funny feeling you're going to go just as crazy about these as I did. Words can not even describe really can they? Danny & Louise's amazing alternative, British (oh yes this couple is English woooo) wedding was all about the style.
Louise's stunning latex dress was made by Jane Doe Latex. This part certainly didn't care about what was 'expected' of their wedding, not only are the pair clearly ones to play by the rules (Louise is a piercer and micro-dermal specialist and Danny is a tattooist. They are both heavily modded, both having split tongues, facial tattoos and multiple piercings) but the wedding meal after the ceremony was a trip to MacDonald's eaten at their house! Their evening reception and buffet was held at at our local rock bar, Sanctuary and was fancy dress, hence the grooms rather fetching nurses outfit!
Seriously guys, put your eyes back in their sockets right now and enjoy!
Thanks to Donna for sharing this AMAZING wedding with us
Roller Derby Bride
November 18, 2009
This roller derby bride (who met her friend and photographer Lilly whilst playing roller derby for the Rat City Rollers in Seattle) married her long term boyfriend at a 1920's/1930's Bonnie & Clyde inspired wedding in Kubota Gardens, a Japanese garden in Seattle. The entire wedding party was in vintage 1930's garb, as were many of the guests. A getaway car in the form of a 1930's hot rod was provided by a good friend of Randi and Todd's: Jerry Chinn, who is a local prop house owner and collector of vintage vehicles. He was kind enough to pull over a couple of times so the photographer could get some really great shots of them with the car. The reception was at a neighborhood watering hole called Calamity Jane's where jambalaya and collard greens were served and square dancing ensued

The Halloween weddings have been pouring in and I can't say I mind at all! Julie & Bryan's wedding particularly caught my eye on account of its medieval, pumpkin, nightmare before Christmas accumulation. This is pretty much individuality at it's best!
The Corpse Bride
November 4, 2009
With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year and it being a distinctly unconventional theme for a wedding, I have not at all been surprised to receive a number of spooky themed weddings that took place last weekend. I'm kicking today off with Colinne & Shane's wedding. Some of my favourite details include Colinne's choice of converse trainers under her dress plus her black diamond engagement ring, the lucky rabbit's foot that accompanied her bouquet and acted as her 'something old'. The couple even used the vows from The Corpse Bride as their own!
With this hand,
I will lift your sorrows.
Your cup will never empty,
For I will be your wine.
With this candle,
I will light your way in darkness.
With this ring,
I ask you to be mine
Thank you to Elizabeth for sharing these

Happy Halloween – Fancy Dress Fun
October 31, 2009
Being huge fans of Halloween, what could be a better theme for Mina & Kevin's engagement session? The pair (and of course their adorable Pug!) got right into the spirit of it, carving pumpkins, dressing up and lots of general silliness! How cute is this little family!?
