Backyard Beautiful

Lauren & Alexander got married last summer in their own back garden, surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and family. The whole day was a DIY affair and a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple. Lauren looks amazing in her simple Betsey Johnson dress and Moschino Chic & Cheap shoes, while Alexander bucked all the trends by wearing a casual T-shirt and Jeans from Nordstrom and by spending the whole day barefoot!

The wedding had a very comfortable, home-grown, relaxed party feel. The details weren’t really that important to this couple, ignored in favour of what really mattered to them – family, friends, home and love.

An Extra Special, Stylish & Quirky British Wedding

The UK is seriously on fire this week and I’ve got another fantastic British wedding so share with you. However this one is extra extra special as Sally & Peter actually found their photographer, Kate, through Rock n Roll Bride! Woo to the Hoo!

Kate talked all about Sally & Peter and their wonderfully eclectic day on her own blog: 

Sally and Peter have been together for about 18 months and about 6 months ago, during a game of scrabble, Peter proposed! While Sally was out of the room Peter stole several of the letters and when the time was right spelt out the words ‘marry me’. This explains Sally’s choice of earrings on the wedding day – The S&P are from the actual set they played.

Celebrate in Style

I have rather a loving relationship with all the regular contributors to Rock n Roll Bride. After all, they are the ones keeping me going and sending me wonderful and inspiring content to share with you all. So when Jeremy Lawson told me that his love for me continued to grow…well I could hardly say no to featuring Melissa and Howell’s fabulously chic wedding could I? (ps emails like this really make me smile so thank you thank you thank you!)

Two Sides to the Story

Allison & Gabe’s wedding day started like every other – excitable, elegant, stylish and full of lurrrrve – then night fell and the chaos and fun of rock star proportions ensued! I love how the couple’s attire matches their mood – beginning of the day – excited, demure and classy (I adore Allison’s simple dress which she got on sale in Bloomingdale’s),  end of the night – ruffled and rocking the hell out (and again I adore Allison’s dress – which she actually made herself – she bought a basic tutu from Etsy but the rest was all her own work!) In fact it wasn’t just the bride who changed – the whole wedding party got changed (the women from pastels into black ruffles – again make by the bride from tutu’s found on Etsy – and the men into dinner suits) for the massive party at the end of the night!

Slurpee Bride

Is it just me or doe s Rachel look a lot like the gorgeous Anna Friel?! Off topic slightly but I just had to thrown that out there. The idea for this shoot came from the bride herself. She had always been a huge fan of Tori Amos and so told photographer Duston Todd that around the time that her idol got married, and in reference to her song ‘Jackie’s Strength’, she was quoted to have said

“There’s one side of me that could very easily have ended up at the 7-Eleven sitting outside drinking a Slurpee in my wedding dress and just missing the whole thing. And then there’s the other one that did make it to the church. So, this song is about the one that drank the Slurpee. She’s still out there somewhere.”
