A Dark Circus Inspiration Shoot

How do you feel about a dark circus wedding theme? Spooky but romantic, creepy but intriguing – this shoot is sure to divide opinions which is why I love it!

Coordinated by San Francisco based Asiel Design and photographed by the fabulous Caroline of Tinywater, this shoot is an epic collection of talent and ingenious ideas. From the dramatic lighting to the opulent florals, this is a style I’d love to see inspire some real life weddings.

A Theme Park Wedding: Shirley & Elijah

Shirley & Elijah love going to theme parks and Disneyland so when it came to choosing a theme for for their wedding it was the obvious choice. “Our wedding was full of vibrant colors,” the bride wrote. “We went for the overall theme of a theme park called ‘Shirlijahland’. Every aspect of the wedding played off this. Our food was an upscale version of carnival food and our flowers were inspired by wands, pin-wheels, and lollipops. My dress and the dresses of my bridesmaids were fun and whimsical. We wanted people to be blown away and to share in a part of our quirky personalities.”

The ceremony was held in Mater Dolorosa Catholic Parish, with the reception that followed at Terra Gallery, an event space in San Francisco. The couple were able to completely decorate the venue as they liked which suited them perfectly! Origami and Chinese lanterns were hung from the ceiling, the tables all had individually styled centrepieces, and as night fell pink up-lighting was switched on to really add to the party atmosphere!

Incredible Victorian Steampunk, Corset Heavy & Generally Awesome Diy Wedding Day…with Masks!

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get the Australian wedding together on time to take us over to Oz for our final wedding of the day today (I want to make sur that when I put it up it will be perfect and have all the info you might want on the event so pweease forgive me!??)…however I have managed to secure a pretty damn shaaaweeet Steampunk wedding which took place in San Francisco to round today off nicely. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with this baby…in fact I am so in love with this wedding that I appear to have titled this post will the longest, most over-excited, rambling header ever!  

Violet & Eric are certainly going to being some much needed spice to Rock n Roll Bride today. I had an amazing chat with the super creative bride (who also makes her own Steampunk inspired jewellery – you can see some of her designs here) where she told me all about their wedding.

“Our inspiration for the whole thing was not only the aesthetic but also the philosophy of Steampunk. Steampunk to us honors and glorifies the balance of technology with artisan aesthetic; the need to maintain a sense of beauty, along with a more finely-honed machine. (The Steampunk computer case mods are a perfect example — making a modern PC look like a vintage Victrola or Underwood typewriter, tools which were technologically less advanced, but aesthetically far more classically pleasing to the eye.)

Gothic, Fancy Dress, Halloween Wedding

I have been dreaming about blogging this wedding since October when photographer Caroline of the wonderful  Tinywater emailed me to let me know she was off to shoot a Halloween, fancy-dress gothic themed wedding…and even before shooting the wedding, she knew I was going to love it. Well judging by the number of photographs I’m including in this post you could say she was pretty much bang on! I was lucky enough to have Rachel, the bride get in contact with me to share all the glorious details!

Infatuation.

Is is possible to have an addiction to a set of photographers? Because I definitely have a really intense Tinywater habit. Every day I need to get my fix…and it feels gooooood.

One day I will travel to Sacramento and track down Caroline & Daniel as I hold them personally responsible for my infatuation.

I can not stress how close a call it was – they won by just 13 votes and the two runners up only had 2 votes between them – agonisingly close! I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that entered and voted and of course a maaahusive high five to the awesome Tinywater Photography. Eeeek I can not wait to see the results!

Vote Vote Vote!

Voting is now closed

No exaggeration this has been the most difficult contest to judge…ever! I am just so glad I got to choose 3 finalists, picking just one would have literally been impossible. So here’s the drill, I need you to vote for your favourites to win the photo shoot in the comments section of this post. The couple who get the most number of votes will win. You have until Sunday 12th July 2009 to pick your winners. May I introduce…

Johnny & Ash
What makes us particularly rock n roll? Both artists at heart [he with music, I with craft], we have genuine appreciation for that talent and work that go into photography. We often take our own little photo shoots in the comfort of our home — amateur, but still so much fun! Above all qualities, we share an immense dislike for material possessions and human natures craving for cash. We refuse to buy ourselves luxuries unless we can sincerely part with them. We will never claim to “need” something other than oxygen, nourishment, and each other. Our goofy personalities and spontaneity is all the entertainment I could ask for. A perfect day, in our eyes, is spent in the grass under the sun, maybe with a bottle of wine. Although we are completely content and thankful for what we have, our lack of money keeps us from ever treating ourselves to something nice. We know we will be just fine without the fancy dinners on important dates [we prefer to try and cook by ourselves anyway!], or the garden wedding we will never be able to afford, but being spoiled with the attention of a photo shoot is something he and I would really appreciate.

Automne & Graham 
I could tell you all about our little rock ‘n’ roll habits like nerding out about records, drinking beer on the porch, going to shows, playing music together, making each other laugh, talking about politics, and turning each other on – but none of those things are fabulously unique. They’re just fabulous. What makes us unique is that we were introduced by a friend, reacquainted at a war protest, and brought together during a spin-the-bottle game. We’ve been inseparable for six years. Our first kisses made the papers and our wedding is going to blow your minds.

Erica & Richie
First of I just wanted to say I am totally addicted to Rock n Roll Bride! I HAVE to read and see all of the gorgeous pictures you post EVERYDAY, thank you for all of the inspiration. Ok with that said, on to my Fiancee and I. I met Richie at this indie/electro bar in our home town, one day I was there dancing the night away with my besties and he walked by. I promise that when I saw him I was instantly in love. So when he walked back by I couldn’t help but stare and smile. Then he walked by again and I smiled and was just hoping and hoping he would come talk to me, and he did! We hit it off and have been together everyday since. We are from Texas and now live in California, he moved all the way over here with me. The thing that makes us rock n roll is that we are 100% able to be who we are. We have so much fun together whether we are out exploring getting lost or whether we are at home watching TV. He makes me laugh, I make him laugh. We love dancing, jamming out in the car, and just being lazy together, there is nothing sweeter than that. We are getting married in March and I cannot wait! I dream of having gorgeous pictures like the ones I see here everyday

Good Luck guys, I’m glad it’s out of my hands now!

I hate to have to add this but pwwwease only one vote per person. I do not want this contest to turn into fisty-cuffs about some people getting multiple votes from the same IP addresses. Each IP address will only get one vote. Come on now people, I can see where each vote comes from, you’re not fooling me by changing your name or email address slightly! Play nice or don’t play at all.

We Love Colour!

Some may say I blog too much, but the thing is, when I get send sooo much fabulousness it’s a crime not to share. Without all these posts I would go to blogger’s prison.
Just one more for tonight then, and I’m ending the day with one of my favourites. – Tinywater. I love them. Caroline even tweeted me the proofs of this session before blogging them as she knew I’d go crazy for them..and hurrah she was right!

I also recieved a lovely email from the Bride, Sandra who was more than happy to share some of the details of their glorious day..

Dress:  Sonia Cholette, purchased at Trudy’s Brides
Shoes:  Carlos Santana, Believe
Earrings:  White Aisle
Hair:  Giao Nguyen
Makeup: Vy of Exquisite Faces
Coordinator: Kristen Jensen of Sugar Rush Events
Ceremony:  Mission San Jose
Reception:  Ruby Hill Golf Club

What made our wedding so special to us, was that we were able to share it with the people we love most.  They accompanied us to almost every meeting, from tastings to linens, and really participated.  Since we have been together since Junior year of high school (11 years!), everyone was just so happy for us, and it showed.

For the decor–if you can’t tell already, we LOVE color.  So turquoise, lime green, and papaya made up our color scheme.  My sister is a graphic designer, and she helped us with all things paper.  This included our signature drink signs, our cookie buffet welcome, our favor labels and escort cards, and our programs and invitations!  She is truly a genius.

We wanted to keep the ceremony traditional, and since it was in a historic mission, and I have Spanish roots, I went with a scalloped lace gown, and a mantilla veil.  I feel it really complemented the decor and felt very authentic.

I think the most “us” thing about our wedding, besides the colors and the ceremony, was the cookie buffet. Chad and I are not huge fans of cake, but we LOVE cookies and milk.  So after much logistical planning, we created a cookie buffet for dessert instead of cake, and did a cookie cutting and milk toast instead of cake cutting and champagne toast.  A little different– but totally us!

For their wedding photographs, clicky here, here & here! – but I’m all about these amazingly bright, colourful, fabulous ‘newlywed session’ shots.
Seriously Caroline & Dan…I need to you come to London so you can take photographs of meeee!

Until tomorrow my darlings xx
