I’ve got a bit of a triple hitter for you today – a feature in 3 parts. I was sent some images by Jonathan Canlas that he took at one of his world renowned photography workshops entitled Film is Not Dead, which was held last month in San Diego. He sent over shots of 3 equally gorgeous and totally Rock n Roll couples so I’m going to feature them all. Here we go with couple number one – Stacey & Chris.
Stacey is wearing Halogen cardigan from Nordstrom, a vintage dress found in San Francisco for $15, J.Crew hair clip, Forever21 bracelet, Vaneli shoes from Nordstrom.
Chris is wearing a Zara suit, J.Crew shirt and tie, Kenneth Cole tie clip, Aldo shoes.
This year is 50 years since Psycho terrified audiences all over the world and the film-loving couple thought that the very house that the movie was filmed it would make the perfect location for their wedding. It was the first ever wedding held at the Psycho House. The pair really went all out with their theme which started when and the groom appeared from the House escorted by none other than Norman Bates as Mother. He descended the famous staircase and the bride entered from Janet Leigh’s room #1. The recessional ended with Robert carrying Suzi back to the hotel under the watchful eye of Norman Bates.
After the ceremony the guests signed the hotel ledger, sipped champagne and posed under the Bates Motel sign before piling back on the bus and heading Michael’s Bar and Grill, Burbank for the reception.
When I received the initial email from Roland of S8 Films I was blown away. Not only did I instantly adore their work but I was delighted to discover they are London based (in fact right around the corner from my soon-to-be-part-time ‘day’ job!) The Super 8 format has been growing in popularity over the last few years. From it’s grainy texture to it’s raw, ‘real’ appeal, it’s easy to see why brides all over the world have fallen in love with it. In fact if we had made the decision to have a wedding film made, I know Super 8 would have been the way we’d done it.
Kim & Alex’s wedding hit me like a steam train of epicness when I laid eyes on it. I’m pretty sure my incessant ramblings can’t bring it justice so I think it’s only fair I hand over to Kim with all the fantastic details. As usual, I’ll be back with the eye candy.
“Originally our theme was “Halloween Town” from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but as time went on, our theme evolved beyond Tim Burton to include other geeky things we love as a couple such as zombies, toys, film and… well… Halloween!
We were mostly inspired by films (predominantly Tim Burton and Zombie flicks) and our own Halloween experiences. We just looked at the little things we loved most and used that to make our wedding our own.”
Remember this fabulous ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ shoot that I posted on Halloween that you all adored so much? Well Alley is BACK and better than ever! This month’s shoot (she organises a conceptual shoot every month) had a distinctive Alice in Wonderland theme, which, with the buzz around the new Tim Burton movie is sure to resonate popularity with you lot!
I haven’t posted any videos for a while so when Wes sent me the link to Leighanne & Adam’s little film I lapped it up. Their wedding may have had many traditional elements but the video just made me smile so I felt the need to share
Thanks to Wes for sending this over! You can check out more of his work on his new Vimeo channel
