Mystical Mod Wedding with the Bride Channelling Priscilla Presley

caption

Lacey-Lee channelled Priscilla Presley for her bridal look. Her dress was an original vintage number which she had reworked to the exact style she wanted. The groom, Cam, is of Orcadian heritage so he wanted to wear traditional Scottish attire. Not an obvious paring you might think, but it really works!

The theme of combining both their passions continued into the rest of the wedding. “Cam and I always knew we weren’t going to have a normal wedding”, Lacey-Lee said. “We both have quirky interests and we wanted it to be a collaboration of lots of different elements. We are both touring musicians so music was also always going to play a huge part. I decided to DJ which allowed me to really set the tone exactly how we wanted it to feel. It also made the evening really special.”

Camp Site Wedding in British Columbia

Natasha and Justin are one of those couples that you see and instantly want to know their story. Luckily for you, Rock n Roll Bride is here to share their incredible wedding pictures and tell you all about it.

The couple met through mutual friends. “We started seeing each other the second Natasha became available and that was that”, explained Justin. “We got married on September 6th and the inspiration for our wedding was 60s handmade décor. Also bright colours mixed with an outdoor cabin getaway. All the decorations were DIY.”

The day was held at Camp Howdy in Belcarra, British Columbia. “The biggest expense was our photographers, Nordica, because we know our photos would be the one thing to jog our memories of our wedding day when we are too old to remember”, he said. “We knew Nordica would document the day they way we saw it, and that was well worth the money. However we saved money because we were able to supply our own alcohol at the venue.”

A Batman Engagement Shoot: Crystal & Darren

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Gratton of Ophelia Photography while she was over in London on vacation. Amongst many things, we spoke about Lisa’s desire to create something a little different and fun around her engagement shoots and this Batman-inspired session proves her point nicely!

Lisa told me how the groom, Darren, who was initially quite nervous in front of the camera really came to life as soon as he put on this Batman suit! Well it is every little boys dream to be a superhero isn’t it?

Ruth & Oliver’s Rustic Orchard Wedding

I utterly adore Ruth & Oliver’s beautiful orchard wedding! In fact as soon as photographer Abbye told me about the details I knew I’d be loving it. “When I first met up with Ruth to talk about her wedding she brought along a huge glass jam jar. After talking over details Ruth pulled out the jar and told me “I know this might sound strange, but I just want to have jam jars everywhere…”  to others it might have sounded strange, but I totally got what she was going for.”

“On the day of the wedding Ruth had found not only hundreds of old glass jam jars but a variety of old type writers, chalk boards, and suitcases.  Many of the small details were found by Ruth at various thrift and antique stores around Vancouver.”

Something Blue

Jessica & Karl got married in the city of Stockholm, Sweden, in the Södermalm region to be precise, which is apparently one of the coolest  urban areas of the country. The wedding had a distinctly blue theme which perfectly reflected the countries nature. “Blue is as Swedish as it gets with it being the dominant colour in the flag” photographers Cole & Jakob told me “and a lot of that has to do with the importance of the ocean to the countries culture. Even the archipelago that Stockholm is built amongst is surrounded by the blue of the sea, and that colour was an underlying theme through the planing of this wedding.”

Jessica wore a dress by Design by Marja Collection with a beautiful handmade hairpiece by Percy Handmade and a flawless hair net made by Tied and Feathered. Karl wore a Western North Carolina tie from Me & Matilda which again matched their ‘something blue’ theme.

Vintage Wedding Heaven

I have quite literally died and gone to vintage wedding heaven. This is one of those shoots, that as soon as I saw just one little sneak peak, I emailed the photographer right. that. second to demand to be able to feature them! The ever lovely Lisa of Ophelia Photography was of course more than willing to allow me to have my way with these, and boy am I excited to share. All you lovers of vintage fare are going to go just gaga.

Perched on top of stone angel in a Vintage Wedding Gown and a crown of baby pink flowers, Corrie is slipping, almost falling.  But that doesn’t compromise her poise; she tries a funny face (very Audrey Hepburn)surprise and a cool couture profile as she lengthens her leg just so.   I hold my breath and click my camera following her lead, she is pure magic.

Beautiful Henna

I’ve featured Indian weddings before, mainly because I am crazy-obsessed with bright colours and who does it better?! However with this wedding I am infatuated with a different side – the personal touches, the uncomplicated feeling and the desaturated colours used to photograph all that beautiful henna.

Anniversary Love

As photographers, Emmy & Aaron are more comfortable being behind the camera then in front, but for their one year anniversary (this week!) they decided they deserved some gorgeous photographs of their own!

Emmy told me the whole story:
When we took a little anniversary trip to a cabin on Cowichan Lake (Vancouver Island BC Canada) I pulled my dress, by Demetrios, out of the closet and took it with us.  We had a great little cabin on the beach and there were some other perfectly decayed old buildings on the property including this great lime green shed.  The owner expressed some concern that we were making photos in front of “the biggest eyesore on the property”.  I think that old shed is perfect!.  We met over a conversation about our shared love of photography.  Pretty soon we also loved each other and now we love making photographs together.  We can’t believe how lucky we are that we found each other and that we both have the same passion.  I don’t let him shoot me that often – I like being behind the camera as much as he does – but putting that dress on tends to let you become somebody else for a while.  Doesn’t hurt that its my hot hubby behind the camera!  Everyone should do this on their anniversary – let those dresses out of the closet girls you look fabulous in them and they want to be seen!  You don’t have to be a photographer just head out and have some fun!  I LOVE my dress and it was soooo much fun wearing it again!!

Spectacular Glamour

Glamour. Pure unadulterated glamour. From the gorgeous Bride and her girls all in their stunning custom made hairpieces from Heather Mandin to the Groom and his boys arriving at Grouse Mountain (the Peak of Vancouver) in a helicopter, the whole day just screams magnificence! It goes without saying that the locations is spectacular, but it’s the ridiculous fun they look like they had that does it for me.

Thank you to photographer Gracci for sharing the love with Rock n Roll Bride.
