A Vintage, Rustic and Uber Chic Yorkshire Wedding

One of the greatest things about my job as a blogging maestro is all the wonderful people I get to meet…and it’s even better when we get to meet in real life! The delightful Emma Case is down in London for a few weeks and so emailed me and suggested we meet up go out for Sushi. Now, those that know me will be well aware that I’m not one to say no to Sushi! We met up last Tuesday and immediately hit it off, talking non-stop about wedding planning, photography, blogging, husbands, proposals, flowers, music…you know the drill! I was particularly excited to hear about some fabulous weddings she’s shot over the past few weeks and lucky for you I got first dibs on sharing them all with you (score!)

First up is Helene & Simon’s fabulously chic and rustic Yorkshire wedding and Helene looks ridiculously gorgeous in her vintage style dress made for her by Dresses at No. 9?

Hannah & Ali’s Quirky, Art Deco and Too-Damn-Freakin’-Cool British Wedding

Do you remember Hannah & Ali’s awesome ‘at home’ engagement shoot complete with their awesome kitty cat? Well I was over the moon to receive an email full to bursting with their quirky, art deco, vintagey wedding goodness from their photographer Steve Gerrard just the other day. I am loving Hannah’s Jenny Packham dress and headband (le swoon indeed) and the bridesmaids look just too damn cool for school in their All Saints dresses.

Their wedding took place just before Christmas at The Daffodil in Cheltenham, a fantastic converted 1920’s Art Deco picture house Steve tells us, The vintage theme continued throughout the wedding and I have to say I wish more couples would go down this route. I think it’s so cool and stylish. Hannah and Ali both looked amazing, but their guests also made a huge effort and win the award for best dressed guests ever!

Light Up

Is it just me or did Christmas just zoom by!? The build up is always huge and I can’t believe it’s all over with now. As blog-land slowly wakes up after a much needed rest (not me..too much of a blogaholic I am…take two weeks off? Are you nuts?!) I’m still swooning over the many Crimbo-related submissions I’ve been receiving. Catie & Dave’s engagements stood out as soon as photographer Lisa sent them to me. Not only is Catie a huge fan of Rock n Roll Bride (she gets instant kudos and jumps the the front of the featuring queue for that one) but the couple’s shoot is nothing short of spectacular. The Christmas lights really bring the shots alive and how can I resist the fact that to propose, Dave got ‘Will you marry me?’ inked on his arm, thank God she said yes!

Celebrate in Style

I have rather a loving relationship with all the regular contributors to Rock n Roll Bride. After all, they are the ones keeping me going and sending me wonderful and inspiring content to share with you all. So when Jeremy Lawson told me that his love for me continued to grow…well I could hardly say no to featuring Melissa and Howell’s fabulously chic wedding could I? (ps emails like this really make me smile so thank you thank you thank you!)

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!

Intense. Elation. Ridiculous.

As soon as I laid eyes on James & Rebecca’s Melbourne wedding I knew I wanted to blog it. However with photographer Jonas Peterson so in demand by wedding bloggers I thought for sure that someone had beaten me to it. So imagine my elation this morning when I received a tweet from Jonas who asked if I’d like to be the first to blog them…Well of course!

Bournemouth Beauty

Oh how lucky we are – two UK weddings in one day! I’m hoping this means that Blighty (thats’ slang from Britian for all my America readers) may be catching up to our American cousins slowly but surely on the old rock n roll weddings front.

Rock n Roll Bride readers Emma & Ian actually found their photographer Philip Allen through a post on this humble blog.  Phil told me the whole story:

A Laid Back, Retro Vibe

Kelty of Steep Street is slowly becoming one of my new favourite photographers. With every photo shoot I fall just a little bit more in love with her laid back, retro vibe. Nadia & Bram’s engagements are of course no exception. I have so much love…

Kelty…love you girl!

To Infinity

The Infinite Design team went for something totally different for Brady and Nithya’s wedding trailer. The result is something with much more of a filmic feel – blurring the lines between cinematography and videography so to speak. It evokes the emotion and the vibe of the wedding in a much more subtle way. I totally love it. It brings me back to my university days studying film and makes me feel ever so slightly intelligent again!

Thanks so much to Tim for sharing this special film

An Inspired Choice

Photographers Craig & Chanelle Segerius-Bruce met Andy & Kim way back in 2007 in Zanzibar, when they (the photographers) were on their own honeymoon. The wedding took place at Parley Manor in Dorset and Kim wore a Benjamin Roberts dress. I am loving the vintage VW cars and that amazing sunset!
However my favourite of all these images, has to be the Jeff Newsom-inspired swirly light shot..mean, moody and very very cool.

I am doing a photo shoot with Chanelle soon..I am very excited about it as the concept we have come up with is quite different to what you might be seeing everywhere else right now…hint: I’m getting all crafty with black tulle!

A Tokyo Story

I love Japan rather a lot (have you noticed that about me!?) I love the fashion, the food, the people…the Hello Kitty – everything. In fact  I think there is nothing about Japan I don’t like, and Tokyo is by far the most amazing city I have ever been to. So when I clapped eyes on Sandra & Richard’s engagements by the fabulous Tealily Photography I had no doubt in my mind that a feature would be getting underway.

Photographer Trish described their shoot:
Joel and I waited at the old green carriage and the statue of the dog which seemed to be a very popular thing to do amongst the human sea of trendy Japanese and slighty overwhelmed tourists. I had only conversed with Sandra via email to that date and suddenly realised I had no idea who I was looking for until I spotted a couple of sweet faces pull through the crowd. We had decided to catch up for dinner since Joel and I were passing through Tokyo and decided to try and fit in a few shots before the light disappeared for the night.
We weren’t quite sure where to head for these photos in the crazy streets of Tokyo, but Sandra had decided to triple up this date as a bit of sightseeing for us and lead the way.

One of the many things I love about Tokyo is how diverse the city is. One minute your under the bright lights of the Shibuya crossing, then you turn a corner and your right in front of an ancient shrine. I would live there in a heartbeat.

Thank for the reminiscing Trish & Joel!
