Walking on Water

You are going to love Soumya & Anil’s photo shoot. Not only is Soumya wearing some of the most gorgeous dresses, like ever, but the backdrop and setting – in particular the way they are reflected in the water, is nothing short of spectacular. Anil is really into working on cars so they had to get that into the shoot too and the contrast between the two themes works perfectly.

Somewhere over the Rainbow

“Somewheeeere over the raaaainbow…waaaay up hiiigh”

Oh yes I do love The Wizard of Oz and when I saw Eagen & Jason’s wedding and it’s nods to Oz, I knew it was perfect for a little blogging. What I love particularly about the wedding is that the theme hasn’t taken over the day – it’s not cheesy, it’s not crass, it’s not cringy – they have just included a few subtle nods to the movie in an oh so stylish way. The emerald (city) bridemaid dresses,the table names, the sparkly ‘Dorothy’ shoes.

Procedure: Molecular Fusion

I found a linky to the wedding of UBER UBER UBER cool recent bride and artist Zoetica Ebb & her writer husband Ales Kot on Gala Darling last week and literally couldn’t wait to share it with you – especially after I visited Zoetica’s inspiring website and laid eyes on her sparkly, blue, fauxhalk! Serious hair envy batman!

The pair actually got officially married in a microscopic civil ceremony June as Ales is a Czech citizen (you can see Zoetica’s post on the event here including their adorable ‘leaving the ceremony’ video) so the couple decided that a second ‘just for show’ ceremony didn’t make sense so their wedding was actually just a big old Rock n Roll celebration!

Zoetica wore the parachute gown from All Saints, which was a gift from her friend Courtney and a necklace from her husband, a keishi pearl and black garnet beaded necklace with pyritized ammonite pendant and three pink sapphire drops, by Ria Charisse, purchased through the lovely folks at Gold Bug Pasadena. The pair also had custom-sculpted and cast rings made by Shane Case. “We wanted a texture that looked somewhere between bark and flesh and the lunar surface” Zoetica told me.

Fairy Lights, Scrabble & English Heritage

Ella & Sam’s London wedding was such a gorgeously quirky affair that not only I was boiling over with excitement to blog them, but Emily from the ridiculously popular (and in fact one of my personal favourite blogs) Once Wed was too. So we’ve decided to join forces on this one and to both share our favourite bits of this gloriously English affair. For all the ceremony and portraits head over to Once Wed and I’ll handle the beautiful reception details.

You might actually recognise Ella from her sister’s wedding that I also featured on Rock n Roll Bride a while back – who could forget those wonderful red shoes?! While Tara opted for a bright and colourful summer wedding, Ella & Sam’s day was one of enviable vintage glamour and sophistication – with a touch of Rock n Roll of course! I am absolutely crazy for those bridesmaids in sparkly black jackets and the un-corordinated patterned tights (which I think they wouldn have got from Topshop as I have a couple of them in my wardrobe!) Sam’s awesome floral shirt and bow tie combo and Ella’s beautiful Benjamin Roberts dress.

The wedding which was held in Grenwich, London was one of English Heritage and followed by a secret dinner at Davy’s Wine Vaults, decked out with candles and hand-chosen gifts for everyone.

“I always wanted a winter wedding full of candles and fairy lights” Ella told us “and Davy’s Wine Cellar in Greenwich provided the perfect blank canvas for us to decorate and add the personal touches we wanted to surround our guests with. Each guest was given their own personal present as a favor and Sam personally decorated all 80 of the Scrabble-themed namecards to make them laugh upon finding their seat; he was literally covered in feathers and glitter at the end of his little DIY session!  The staff at the venue were so kind and lovely and really made the day. They pretty much let us do whatever we wanted and they let us pick our favourite food, a good old British roast dinner.”
