The Beatles, Dr Seuss, Pom Poms & Holga!

A DIY wedding with Holga images? Oh hell yeah baby…

Shelly & Jeff had a wedding that perfectly epitomised them. From the turquoise and orange pom poms and the personalised ‘All You Need is Love’ M&Ms to their friend playing ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles and Dr Seuss’ ‘Oh The Places We Will Go’ as gifts. From the sparrow salt & pepper shakers as a cake topper and succulents as centrepieces to the their customised ‘lunchboxes’ by Pink Avocado..oh yes yes yes! Shelly’s beautiful dress was by Linda Asaf┬áand I love it all!

Grand & Unusual

Happy Monday my lovelies. Being away from my computer for 2 days means I have a hell of a lot of stuff to now catch up on (good for you!) including announcing the finalists for the Love Me Do Photography contest – check back later today to check them out and vote for your favourites to win!

Starting off the week in style is this stunning red haired bride. The shoot took place in a funeral home of all places (her father works there) but the setting certainly made for a rather grand and unusual backdrop. Yummy indeed.

Lover’s Day Out

The gorgeous and ever lovely┬áJosephine Sicad┬ásent these over to me yesterday telling me the story of the engagement session of Yvon┬á& Moyo. Remember┬áher own engagement session┬áthat I featured a while back – Nobody Can Be Uncheered by a Balloon? (her own words) Well this one is just as glorious! The idea was ‘A Lover’s Day Out’ – a day in the life so to speak. I literally drooled as I checked these out. You will too!
You can see the whole set here.

Emotional & Theatrical

Classy, elegant, retro. These are the words that came to me as soon as I saw Rebecca & Justin’s 1950s inspired engagement session. The shoot took place at The Ritz Ybor in downtown Tampa, a venue which perfectly reflected photographer Alicia’s vision for the session. Rebecca’s polka dot dress was from PinUp Girl Clothing┬áand Justin looked the part in his trilby hat (which retails at $75 but he picked up for $6!) and waistcoat combo.

Second Time Lucky

DSC_0464b

Both beautiful and fun, this wedding was zipped over to me by newbie photographer Emma Case. I am struggling to believe this is only the second wedding she has ever┬áshot! The Southampton based photographer told me all about Ruth & Dan’s wedding:

Ruth and Dan were married on the 3rd October 2009 at Hartington Hall Youth Hostel in Derbyshire.  They hired the whole hostel for the weekend and guests shared traditional style youth hostel rooms with single beds, bunk beds and shared showers!

Rock n Roll Perfect

It doesn’t get more Rock n Roll perfect than this! Sommer & Dan’s wedding took place in an old mill is Somerset, New Jersey which is owned by Dan’s parents. The bride wore a 1950s prom dress from Ebay and snakeskin Kate Spade shoes. The groom rocked it in a custom suit with spiderweb lining and the bridesmaids looked the part in leopard print shoes. To top off the day, Bruce, the family pet rooster, served as ring bearer and apparently he did a great job!
