Heart Shaped Candy,The British Seaside & Mad Hatter Hair – a ‘Lil Sneak Peek of the new Rock n Roll Bride Shoot

So I don’t usually post sneak peeks on the blog (I prefer to tease you on Twitter and Facebook!) but I am so in love with these that I just had to make sure that every single of of your saw them. I headed down to Whitstable beach yesterday with photographer Eliza Claire, Vintage planner and stylist Tiffany Grant-Riley and hair & make up artist Elbie Van Eeden. It really didn’t feel like work – it was just a girl’s day out in fact! And although I’m proper shattered (and quite sunburnt ooops!) the results are looking like they are aaall going to be worth it.

Wanna see a sneak peek then do ya?! Hold tight my lovelies, the full set and my report will be on it’s way to you as soon as physically possible! I’ll even tell you about the OAP blasting Barry White out of his scooter. I kid you not.

Couture Funfair Bridals

Andrew & Talitha were married last year but were keen to do something a little different and have fun doing another photo shoot. “After many emails with Talitha, I knew she and Andrew would be perfect for a fun fair shoot we had been dying to make happen” photographer Angie told me. “We wanted a certain look – 50’s inspired hair and makeup and I knew we had to have a lollipop bouquet and lollipop buttonholes for Andrew.”

The shoot was held at The Hawkesbury Show that happened just one weekend a year, and is about an hours drive from Sydney. “This smaller show was the perfect opportunity to shoot our 50’s Fun Fair Couture Bridal Portrait. The plan was to just have fun. We weren’t sure what games or rides would be there but we knew what we were hoping for. We made sure we headed for the carousel first – we thought these would be our favourite images but it wasn’t until Talitha and Andrew said they were happy to go on the swinging chairs that the magic started to happen.”

Brighton Belles

Ooh two fabulous UK weddings in one day – I love it when that happens. Photographer Julia Boggio told me all about the super stylish and super fun wedding of Andrew & Lisa

Andrew and Lisa got married in Brighton in October on a very sunny day at the Hotel Du Vin. The hotel held special significance for the bride because, when it was a pub many years ago, her grandparents used to leave her father as a boy sitting outside with a Coke and some chips to keep him busy while they had a pint with their mates. Thus the picture of her dad with the chips and the Coke! Good photography was extremely important to Andrew and Lisa, who is a graphic designer. Having seen some of my previous work, they had some ideas about stuff they’d like to do; for example, with one of my previous couples, I got them to stand in a shop window. Lisa and Andrew liked this so much that they asked a nearby shop if they could do the same thing. The image of them sitting in the bathtub in the Fired Earth window was the result.  Also, for the group shot, they brought loads of props along so we could head down to the beach for some fun. His father cagily told us he would meet us down on the beach and disappeared for a bit. He found us fifteen minutes later, having changed into typical British beach-going wear, complete with hanky tied over his head. Everything about this wedding was great fun!

Sunset Love Story

I really need to be lying down with some honey and lemon and watching trash on tv as I’m sick…grr I don’t do well when I get ill – boredom is not my Forté. I just had to drop by and share a few little images from this Russian engagement session entitled ‘Sunset Love Story.’  Totally beautiful huh? It’s hard to choose, but I think the ‘red heart lollypop’ one has got to be my favourite. Too gorgeous!

The photographer, Katja Mukhina, will actually be touring the states in October/November of this year and would love to meet and photograph some rock n roll couples. Drop her an email if you’re game!

Until tomorrow, when I hope to be feeling less vile and able to share all the amazing weddings I’ve been sent over the weekend (I swear…they are all amazing!)
