Twice the Fun

Vanessa & Matthew had a personal and private retro rockabilly ceremony on the 4th September. Vanessa was 4 months pregnant on their ceremony day but her Dolly Couture dress compliments her mini bump perfectly. Unusually however the couple held off having their reception until October and so I have been waiting since September to share the full set!

An Old Fashioned Love Affair

Anna & Ryan’s wedding was marvelously simple, rustic, old-fashioned romantic affair. Think prairie flowers, wheat, fabric streamers, ball jars and parasols. The round barn that was host to the event belongs to Anna’s family.

Anna’s dress was made by her Mum and was closely based on a design by an independent Italian designer named Mirit Weinstock who sends her clothes out to girls around the world to wear in self portraits to promote her clothing (check out the ‘birthday’ video on her homepage – it’s fab). Her hairpiece was by the always fabulous Which Goose.

An Old Fashioned Love Affair

👰

Anna & Ryan's wedding was marvelously simple, rustic, old-fashioned romantic affair. Think prairie flowers, wheat, fabric streamers, ball jars and parasols. The round barn that was host to the event belongs to Anna's family. Anna's dress was made by her Mum and was closely based on a design by an independent Italian designer named Mirit Weinstock who sends her clothes out to girls around the world to wear in self portraits to promote her clothing (check out the 'birthday' video on her homepage - it's fab). Her hairpiece was by the always fabulous Which Goose. After the ceremony (in which both Anna & Ryan only had one attendant each) there was a picnic lunch and after the picnic, everyone went to the couple's studio (they are also both photographers) to mingle. The reception was in a place called the Forum... an old theatre converted into a bar/event hall which was right across the street from their apartment/studio. Photographer Mysi described the reception vibe as being very much like a movie: amazing people... loud, happy and not a bit of drama. there was a moment during the last song of the night where about 30 of us danced while joined together in an enormous group hug (hard to breathe in there) and screamed the song ... when i realized i should be taking a photo of the spectacle, but i was too happy to watch from the outside. the best part of that was it wasn't forced or annoying or drunken or awkward. it was just joyous. Thanks so much to Mysi for all her hard work on this feature - she has also given me a sneak peek of her own wedding (they just got back from their honeymoon themselves) and it is beyond adorable so I hope I will be able to share those too soon!

Tattooed Lovelies Get Wed

Oh..just wow. As soon as I laid eyes on Cameron & Mike I knew I had to feature them on Rock n Roll Bride. Can you blame me?

Cameron looked just like a movie star and Mike looks so in love it can’t help but make me smile! Mike, a tattoo artist in Florida even proposed to Cameron by tattooing ‘Will You Marry Me?’ on his chest? Freakin’ awesome or what?! That’s some serious commitment – he must have been pretty sure she would say yes!

A Topsy Turvy, Day Of The Dead, Mexican, Skull Spectacular

I swear sometimes I am overwhelmed by the greatness of the submissions I receive for my little blog. I have many people say to me that I must not sleep due to the amount of blogging I do, but I really only wish I could do more!

When I saw Melissa & Phil’s wedding I knew I’d be getting these bad boys up asap! The couple went for a ‘Day of the Dead’, skull and Mexican theme – complete with an awesome brightly coloured skull encrusted cake made by The Bleeding Heart Bakery (plus custom skeleton cake topper from Claylindo.) The couple have matching skull tattoos that they got after only 8 months of dating so there knew it was pretty much the perfect theme for them. When they started to plan their wedding they only had two things they knew they wanted – skulls and tacos!

Melissa explains:
I heard about a Mexican custom for the newlyweds’ cake to have a skeleton bride and groom perched atop it.  This symbolized the couple will not only be together until death, but even after death for all eternity.  We liked this concept so much, we extrapolated upon it and made it the theme and focus of our entire wedding.

The Dia De Los Muertos theme was a perfect fit! It is a custom that is spiritual, quirky, morbid, and unique – just like us!

The couple also incorporated a quirky, retro feel to the day. As Melissa went on to tell me:
I wanted a “vintage” feel for the attire, but also knew that I NEEDED to wear a cute top hat. Or I would possibly die. All the maids had pinup-style dresses and hairdos with skull feather fascinators in their hair. I wore a long A-line dress by Maggie Sottero with a custom made top hat from Topsy Turvy Designs, and had a slight steampunk look happening. I tried to make the guys look a teensy bit vintage with their vest and sans-jacket look. And Phil wore a lovely long suit jacket that looked almost pall-bearer-esque and complimented his long hair nicely.

A huge Rock n Roll Bride thank you to Melissa & Phil for sharing their day…and a even bigger thank you to every single one of you that takes the time to send your wedding gorgeousness my way! I ♥ you all…
