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!
