Skate Park Bridal

On a cold November Sunday morning a recent bride and her photographer headed down to a skate park for a bridal shoot complete with skateboarders, boys on bikes and a big dog (eek!) She wore her wedding dress which was by Donatella and two different pairs of shoes (no,  not at the same time) which were both from Next. I am particularly loving the bright blue pair which were from their Runway Collection.

British Boudoir

This fabulous Boudoir/Pin up style shoot was set up by British photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox.
“My Make up artist is fabulous at creating that seductive, lashtastic pin up look” She told me “She also styled the models hair and I loved how the retro bouncy curls turned out. Accessories are all mine and are mostly props from the studio. The STUNNING blue Manolo Blahnik shoes are actually my ‘something blue’ from my own wedding day. All in all it was a really fun day full of bucks fizz, pearls, blue shoes and vogue magazine!! A perfect way to spend a Sunday in my opinion. “
 

The Lyon Shop

Hands up if you love Amelia Lyon! Chances are that if you’re not waving your arms madly in the air right now it’s because you haven’t heard of the lady… shame on you, oh boy is that about to change.

The Blog Land favourite and all round fabulous Amelia ran another round of her her famous ‘Lyon Shop’ photography workshops on March 6th in Vegas any results turned out a treat. I was lucky enough to secure these exclusive pictures to share with you today. Not only are the models gorgeous (photographer’s Mark & Candice Brooke), funky and fabulous but the locations are to die for. I am seriously swooning over that ‘pool at the top of a skyscraper’ shot. Just awesome.

Candice’s dress was from Allyse’s Bridal in Las Vegas and her fab headpiece and accessories were supplied by Lady Vintage.

White Album Wedding Chapel

Norma & David’s wedding was all about the individual retro touches. In love with the art deco vibe of the 1920s and 30s, the pair used this as their inspiration – choosing to be inspired by and go with the flow of the theme rather than being restricted by it. “We wanted a vintage feel, as I am in love with art deco, 20’s and 30’s music/style/art/film” Norma told me. “As an artist the visual ‘flow’ was more important to me than being “matchy matchy”, or sicking to a theme. We like an eclectic look and things with character…we were hoping to create an elegant, whimsical, romantic, sensual feel.”

The couple got married at White Album Wedding Chapel in Chilliwack, an 1886 wedding chapel, restored with old wooden doors, and an old church bell which is actually owned by their photographers! “A few years ago we accidentally found the chapel for sale” Elizabeth & Mark explain. “When we walked into the little white heritage church along a narrow country road and saw the worn hardwood floors, wooden doors with old door knobs,  tall windows and an old church bell, we fell  in love. It’s a great place to run our photography business and a beautiful place for two people in love to get married!”

Norma wore a dress and catherdal length veil from ‘Treat Bridal’ in Langley and Fluevog shoes. David’s green shirt and zebra tie were found at Le Chateau and gave him such much needed pizazz! Norma designed her own bouquet and used iris and peacock feathers to get the look she was after.

Bowling Alley Rockabilly Bridal Shoot

This exceptional Rock n Roll style fashion shoot photographed by Jessica Monnich at Highball in Austin Texas hit me right between the eyes. I’ve fallen in love with the vintage 1950s rockabilly stylings, the gorgeous fashion, the stunning models, the bowling alley setting…well basically how damn cool the whole thing is! I’m so excited to share this shoot and all the people involved with you..you’re gonna love it!
Be sure to also check out Wild Orchid Studios‘ amazing video to accompany this set after the ‘jump’

“We went with a 50’s theme. The location was very hip swanky 50’s feeling bowling alley on South Lamar in a bowling alley here in Austin Texas called Highball. In keeping with the vintage theme we did a place setting in the color scheme of the shoot using fiestaware which was popular during that time period. We thought Wizard of Oz Pez dispensers would be fun as that was a popular movie during that time. We also had mock cakes made up for the shoot that had a very rockabilly feel to them as well. The “bride” carried a lotus flower surrounded by sweet peas and the “bridesmaids” carried a combination of flowers including pink sweet peas and poppies.”
