It’s nearly New Year’s Eve, so let’s get into the alternative party spirit by injecting glitter, sparkles, rainbows and a bit of kawaii into your life with this head-turning shoot. And get your wish lists at the ready because you’ll be adding to them with no delay after seeing this.
The shoot’s first twinkle formed in the mind of Jo from The Couture Company after walking past the Irregular Choice store in Birmingham at least once a week. The shop has frosted pink glittery walls, flower installation, and a carousel (OMG!). They also did a few shots at Cereal Killer Café,
“This season, about nine out of ten brides arrived to their fittings carrying a box of goodness from Irregular Choice, so I thought it would be wonderful to collaborate on a shoot with them as they’re such a perfect complement to our crazy ass dresses and our brides’ quirky style. I met with manager Megan, who was a total babe, and she inspired me so much that I decided to invite the girls who work in the shop to be the models. Megan was a total star and totally rocked the shoot with her rainbow hair and badass curves. Lauren was so cute and curvy, with her cherubic face and blonde curls, making her perfect for our ‘Fleur’ and ‘Kawaii’ dresses. Then there was lovely Lily, who was our fiery fairy, and Claire the gorgeous brunette who rocked our ‘Poppy’ and ‘Nova’ star designs.”
It’s unusual for me to start a real wedding feature by sharing the video, but Maliya and Dimitris’ film, made by BeingThere Videography, is such a beauty that I can’t help myself. Put this full screen, turn it up loud and enjoy!
Any wedding where the bride rocks pastel pink hair, they have a unicorn wedding cake and they party in a nightclub is all good in my book. Doesn’t this look like the most fun EVER? They were legally married on Christmas Day and had their party on New Year’s Day!
Mina and Nathan didn’t want their wedding day to be the ‘one big day of their lives’, so instead decided to celebrate their wedding day every single year! This year was their fifth vow renewal (!) and it was the right amount of crazy and weird, laid back and a little industrial.
“We have lived together in many beautiful different places around the world,” began Mina, “but there is something particularly special about Berlin and it’s vibes. It’s a place where it’s seems everybody can choose for themselves how to live. It is an absolutely mixed city, culturally and architecturally, and is a place of contrast and individual perspective. Ugly can be beautiful, chaotic and messy can be perfectly organised, rude can be friendly. All of this was an inspiration to us for our wedding renewal and the reason why we wanted it to be in Berlin.”
