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.
