Be Inspired

I’ve got one more mini post for you before I sign off for the evening.  After perusing all your survey responses, I’ve discovered that the second most popular response to the question ‘what would you like to see more of on RnR Bride?’ was ‘Inspiration Boards’ (after ‘Real Weddings’ I’m glad to see I’m doing something right!)

Now..I’m no inspiration board expert (yet!) and I’m sure we all know that Kathryn over at Snippet & Ink is the actual queen of all things inspiration board, so for now I’m going to hand over to her with a couple of my favouritest of her amazing boards

However from now on, I want to hear from you.  Send me your inspiration boards, whether they’re for your own weddings or just for fun, and I’ll post the best ones right here…I may even give a prize if I get a lot of entries..but I haven’t thought of what that could be yet, leave that one with me!

Indian Cafe Wedding

Blimey it’s busy at R’nR Bride HQ right now, I have a crazy amount of weddings to share (and one very special one I’m saving for my debut Savvy Scoop post on Monday – seriously it’s killing me keeping it quiet!) 

As you probably already know, I adore receiving every single one of your emails – whether it’s to share your wedding or a wedding you’ve photographed, to ask me my advice or a wedding-related question, or just to tell me you love me (they are the best hehe!). 
However this wedding sent to me by Rosie Parsons really stood out from the crowd (I love her and have featured her work so many times before!) because it really was a truly unique and original wedding.  You know when someone goes completely and madly OTT in describing their love of something?  And you figure it’s never going to be as good as they’ve built it up to be?  Well this is one of those moments – I’m going to annoy you with my seemingly exaggerated love of this wedding but when you see these photographs for yourself I’m sure you will think my crazy-person ramblings were justified!

Katheryn & James got married at the Bristol registry office (a gorgeous building in itself) but the reception venue, Thali Cafe is like nothing I’ve ever seen – I so want to go here!  The bright pink walls, Elvis posters and fairy lights really made for truly magical and awe-inspiring images. (OMG and don’t even get me started on all those little details – mini top hats, butterflies etc – love love love – as in so much I want my house to be decorated exactly like this)

Ok, I’m going to stop gushing now at just get on with showing you the photographs already!  Do you love them as much as I do?

Fancy A Snog?

Oops!  Sometimes (like right now) I have so many things in my ‘to post’ folder that I overlook some of the best ones!  Terri and Sebastian actually found David McNeil through Rock ‘n Roll Bride so it’s only fair I post these exclusive and amazing engagement photos, shot in both London and Oxford.  You all know I am am avid fan of David’s work and these just prove how very talented he is.

Melissa and Mark Do It In Style

The Bride, Melissa sent me these exclusive wedding photos last week and I’ve been desperate to post them ever since… so here we go!

Melissa and Mark got married on 27 September at The Jerwood Space, a fabulous art gallery in a converted Victorian school just behind the South Bank in London, and as Mark paints in his spare time, plus the fact that they live in a converted Victorian schoolhouse (I’m so jealous) so it really was the most perfect venue for them.
Melissa’s family came over from Australia and her 4 year old niece was the adorable flower girl. Rather than bridesmaids, Melissa choose to have four ‘best girls’ – two of her oldest friends from school in Australia, who both live in London now; Mark’s sister Juliet, and her best friend Dani, whose husband Benjo was our best man. The girls were in different shades of pink dresses by Wtoo by Watters.

Mark wore a made-to-measure suit from Marc Wallace, and his fabulous shoes are ‘Melly’ brogues from Shipton & Henneage. Melissa’s dress was from Caroline Castigliano, by Irish designer Sharon Hoey. The bride wore a veil for the ceremony, and changed into a fascinator after.

Melissa says:

Our fabulously talented photographers, Aga and Jason Williams, captured the emotion, fun and personality of the day; we are so thrilled with their work and I love how in some photos we look uber-edgy and in others we look romantically old-fashioned!

We did our first dance to ‘Fisherman’s Blues’ by The Waterboys, and named our tables after songs that meant a lot to us. We had ‘bowl food’ served for our evening guests, and a fabulous cupcake stand made by Crumbs & Doilies, whose stall at the Chelsea food market I visit regularly on a Saturday! Our guests travelled from all over the UK, as well as from Australia and the US. Quite simply, it was the best day of our lives.

And you know what the best part is (aside from being married to the most fantastic man in the world…)? We get to wear it all again, and have a whole other celebration, in my hometown of Dubbo, Australia, in March!
