Engagement shoots don’t get any better than this. Taking place in Italy, where the couple live, it just screams love, happiness and damn good style. Isn’t that what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about!?
Griffith, from one of the noble families of the GA tribe of Accra, Ghana, met Ilaria in Rome through a mutual friend. Three years later he asked her to marry him. They wanted to celebrate their engagement with some beautiful, fun and colourful photographs taken in their own flat in Italy. They also shot down by the beach, as they both love the sea.
Ilaria’s GORGEOUS pink gown was handmade for her and all of Griffith’s accessories came from Ghana. Ilaria’s engagement ring was handmade by a little independant jewellers in Ghana as well.
A bride in a blush pink tutu skirt, the Las Vegas desert as a photo backdrop and a budget of just €2000 – yes, that’s right, you are able to bear witness to one of the coolest weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of publishing!
“I met my future wife more than 3.5 years ago in a cold December, just before Christmas”, the groom began. “The idea was to pick a Christmas gift for myself so I’d decided to go to perfume boutique where she worked as a sale assistant at the time. It was one of those ‘love at the first sight’ kind of stories. She was the best Christmas present ever!”
Gintarė and Edvinas, who live in Lithuania, flew to Vegas in May to be married by Elvis at the Little Vegas Chapel. Following their quickie ceremony they did photos with their local photographer James Westray all over the city. The ended the night with burgers and beers at their hotel pool – now what can be better than that!?
Jennie and Scott’s Putney pub wedding was a riot of colour and a day of totally relaxed fun. The couple were completely chilled about the day – even when things weren’t going to plan – and you can see how beautiful the results were in the gorgeous pictures from Kat Forsyth!
They had both their ceremony and reception in the Duke’s Head, Putney. Alongside a theme of “pink, grey and very, very relaxed”, the couple drew inspiration from the pub itself and its quirky atmosphere and décor. Their ceremony was held in a quaint room upstairs, which was decked out in pink and white puffy decorations and confetti balloons and mismatched chairs. The sash windows were thrown wide open for a stunning September afternoon, all soundtracked by classical cello versions of old rock songs. Despite Scott messing up his vows when promising to be faithful, and Jennie hardly being able to get the ring on her finger due to the heat, they said “We giggled, we laughed, and it was perfect.”
A graphic designer by trade, Jennie did loads of bits herself, which both saved money and helped make it super personal. Finding the little details to add to the day was her favourite part of planning. “Each thing brought a little smile!” she explained. “Being a graphic designer and hands-on person, I made everything I possibly could. I did the bouquets, the guestbook and little confetti bags were made by me and so were the cake decorations, which still sits in the house today.”
