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!
