Oooh what a set of tasty treats I have for you this week. As ever, I have been blown away with the joy that blog land and the internet has spread this week. First off an extra special mention to Naz of Oliver Rue who sent me a little delight in the post in the form of some ‘rockstar’ magnets and the most adorable handmade card which is now adoring my fridge. I can not express how happy this package made me. I was having a really stressful day and getting home to a parcel wrapped in leopard print really made my week!

From the sparrow salt & pepper shakers as a cake topper and succulents as centrepieces to the their customised ‘lunchboxes’ by Pink Avocado..oh yes yes yes!

Second Time Lucky

DSC_0464b

Both beautiful and fun, this wedding was zipped over to me by newbie photographer Emma Case. I am struggling to believe this is only the second wedding she has ever shot! The Southampton based photographer told me all about Ruth & Dan’s wedding:

Ruth and Dan were married on the 3rd October 2009 at Hartington Hall Youth Hostel in Derbyshire.  They hired the whole hostel for the weekend and guests shared traditional style youth hostel rooms with single beds, bunk beds and shared showers!

Lady Diana

The awesome Marianne Taylor (who shot my pinky, punky princess shoot) just sent me a selection of her most recent engagement sessions and Sam & Adam’s jumped out at me right away. Not only have I got a unhealthy obsession with toy cameras right now (they used a Diana camera as a prop) but the couple are just to damn right funky for words.

ps you have until Sunday 25th October to get your entries in for the free wedding photography contest – open to all – WORLDWIDE wooooo!

Coca Cola Love

One of my all time favourite couple’s who had one of my all time favourite weddings have gone and taken some all sorts of wonderful anniversary photographs! Taken by Jose and edited by the very gorgeous Dani, what a perfect way to celebrate a year of married bliss – with more stunning photography!

Be sure to check out Jose & Dani’s AMAZING wedding here (and if that’s not enough for you, there are more images on her flickr)

Capturing The Moment

Where has Forty Sixty Photography been all my life? Why only now am I being sent this wonderfulness?! Although photographer Chris specialises in music and band images, he is now beginning to branch out into engagements and weddings, as he says ‘ I love capturing people in the moment, when they let their true emotions shine through.’  All I can say is thank goodness and it’s about time!

A Feather Love Wedding

The very gorgeous Noa of Feather Love Photography ran a contest to give one lucky couple free wedding photography (plus a few extra treats including a blog post on eastside bride.) Not wanting to take anything away from the blog du jour I just really just wanted to share some of these gorgeous images and send you on your way over to eastside for all the juicy details (but be sure to come back – I have more gorgeousness to share today!)
