♥ For those of you who don’t follow me on facebook or twitter, I was featured in Cosmopolitan Bride magazine this month! I didn’t know Miranda the lovely Editor was planning on mentioning me so I got way too over excited to see myself in there! To celebrate this quite frankly amazing issue – the best I’ve ever seen from them – and with the magazine’s consent, I’ll be scanning and sharing some of my favourite pages from the mag sometime over the weekend so that all of my lovely American readers can see what they’re missing out on!  Thanks again to Miranda and her fabulous team!

♥ Aaand Woo! the Maggie Sottero website used a photo and bio of me in my dress! I submitted it thinking it may be a bit too ‘out-there’ for them but seems I doubted them wrongly – Maggie you rock!

The City Of London

Find your photographer through Rock n Roll Bride then it’s pretty much a given that I’m going to totally love your wedding and wedding photography! That’s exactly what Carolyn & Marc did and yep, I was right – stunning!

The couple got married right in the centre of London – ‘The City’ as it’s known. I love this part of town. My Dad works around here so I have fond memories of visiting him at his office when I was younger, marvelling at the huge and modern nature of landmarks like The Gherkin and The Lloyds Building vs. the ornate detail of the indoor Leadenhall Market (where Carolyn & Marc had their reception.) I remember my Dad once taking me into on of the bars in this area which to a 15 year old kid was very exciting!

Be sure to head over to Marianne’s blog for a much larger selection of images from this day!

Thanks to Marianne for sending these to me and stay tuned for yet another amazing wedding – photographer sourced from this very site – later!

ps yes there are about a million images in the post but you will forgive me once you check them out!

An Urban Fairytale

Hurrah! Part two of Caroline Ghetes’ amazing vintage inspired bridal sessions is live! This second installment has a much more modern twist to it as Caroline wanted to show how vintage fashion can work in super modern, urban suroundings. She scoured Etsy for the majority of the gorgeous pieces to go in this shoot. The ever so popular 50’s style tea dress was from ghmarketplace, the sparkly tulle veil was handmade with vintage material from the 1940’s by Liaison, the pink and the peacock hairpieces were by Chamberry Cherry and finally the dramatic bouquet was actually made by Caroline herself. 

(Just in case you missed it, Part one is here)

Vendors involved in the shoot included:
Chamberry Cherry
Rachel Larraine
Baroque And Roll
Crimson Empress

Thanks again to Caroline for sharing these with us. I am waiting with baited breath for the third and final installment!

Layered Grey Tulle

Right my lovelies, prepare to be wowed. I discovered Amanda & Jeffery’s wedding when browsing Etsy for a tutu no less. I found seller Monique Martinez of Ouma Clothing who made Amanda’s GORGEOUS layered grey/blue, tulle dress and immediately knew I had to try and feature this wedding! 

The Bridesmaids were treated to similar dresses (but each with their own individual twist) from Ultra Suite and Jeffery and his boys wore suits from Req Square in Queens Plaza Brisbane. I also can’t leave out talking about thise cute litle cars! They all belong to Amanda’s Dad and are vintage Austin A3o’s ( a classic British car.)

The Austrailian couple had their ceremony at the ultra modern Brisbane Powerhouse New Farm  and choose local buskers (who were only 16!) to perform the music. Their reception took place at River Room Southbank. Jeffery’s family come from Thailand, so in order to incorporate this into their big day, the couple infused their wedding with a beautiful Asian colour scheme. The wedding day was rounded off by a 80’s disco that went on late into the night.

Thanks so much to Amanda & Jeffery for taking the time to share their gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous day with us!
