A Fusion Of Colour

I am dying to go to an Indian wedding one day, all the colour and drama..I love it! So when I found this Indian/Mexican wedding I know it’d be a good one!  Both cultures bring such a sense of their own tradition to this wedding, from the Bride’s awesome custom dress (Namrita had a piece of her Mother’s gold and fuchsia wedding sari sown into the side of her one-of-a-kind gown) to the Mexican-inspired wrought-iron canopy over the dance floor.
This is a truly unique wedding and I love it!

Namrita’s dress was designed and customised by Renella De Fina and the wedding was coordinated by Oh How Charming.

Blatant Favouritism

I really try not to have favourites – I feel like a Mother favouring one child over another…but I’m afraid I have to admit, Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel is probably one of my all time favourite photographers and blogging buddies (sssh! Oh God, now I feel totally guilty!)

We met (as in online met) probably about a year ago when the old (RIP) Rock ‘n Roll Bride was still going, and I remember Tara telling me how she was desperate to shoot a really Rock ‘n Roll wedding…well finally I think she has got her wish!
Tara uses a combination of Holga and digital work, creating a unique and beautiful perspective of the world and a totally different take on the usual wedding photography.

The main reason she sent me this wedding was due to the shoes!  How on earth did she know I would love them?!

Now I’m a Happy Little Wedding Blogger :o)

I was sad because I could only find these two images from this gorgeous looking wedding last week..but now I am happy because the photographer recognised my plight and sent me more from this amazing wedding!

 

I asked Nigel to tell me a little about himself and the couple, and he did it so well that I’m not going to try and re-write his words..so here they are in all their glory

 

I am a wedding photojournalist who captures the real moments of a couple’s special day. My style is completely candid and un-posed, and I have an eye for the unusual. Couples looking for something different come to me, because they know I shoot alternative unions (be they in the form of weddings, civil partnerships or parties) and they know I will listen to their needs & take care of them.

 I worked as a fashion stylist for several years before moving behind the lens, so I love it when couples with a strong sense of style approach me with their own unique take on a wedding. It’s something I can really get my teeth into. The people that tend to use me like to break the mould, even if it’s only a little.

The bride [in this wedding] had a strong sense of style, whilst her groom was much more conservative. She had this fabulous dress as you can see, and she just lit up everyone around her, wherever she went. The couple decided to hold their wedding over two days; the first day being just the service and a meal for family and close friends, and the second day they threw a huge party at The Groucho Club for everyone they knew. Their choices of clothing and the venues really put an alternative touch on the whole affair. A wedding that will be remembered.

I hope you like these photographs as much as I do.  Big up the UK photographers!

 

 

 

Skin Graft

After the Circus Freak post and Suzanne’s stunning red dress, I wanted to check out Skin Graft Designs, the magic behind the dress in some more detail. So, after Christinamessaged me to say the link was broken, (thanks hun!) I re-found the site and oh what a lot of fantastic wedding dress joy I was to behold…
