It’s Our Wedding, Let’s P.A.R.T.Y Hard!

Wow wow wow. Kelly & Sean sure knew how to rock a wedding! From an emotional ceremony, to a family-orientated reception to a crazy-fun party, the whole day looks like an utter blast! “The one thing that we dislike about weddings is how they are all alike” they told me. “We understand its tradition and that’s how its supposed to be done, but why? why is there a set pattern?  We wanted our wedding to be personal to us. We wanted to start our own traditions and do things unique to our style. The theme of our wedding was basically “Things We Love” and  it ended up being the perfect reflection of us. We did whatever we wanted and nixed things we disliked. we strived to make it intimate and personal. Our wedding was hands down the best day of our lives, we had everything we loved, surrounded by everyone we love and made sure to marry the heck outta the one we loved!”

The wedding too place at The Allan House. They had a short and sweet ceremony outside which was full of touching moments. The groom’s grandfather was a groomsman! He really relieved the tension during the ceremony when he whistled at the bride as she walked down the aisle…what a lovely idea to involve such a special member of the family in the wedding in this way.

On the River Bed…

When I first saw these I was like “erm…is that a bed in a river?!” I thought it surely must have been some post production/photo shop trick but no, they actually lugged about 300lb of bed 3/4 of a mile down to a river to get these shots!

“Bottom line-it. was. all. totally. absolutely. worth. it. I’m really pushing my approach and style as an effort to redefine expectations of photography” photographer Hollie told me. “Why shouldn’t my clients be pampered during their shoot and have a photographer who will create an environment of repose-it is after all, about them. I’m just so grateful for Team Lytlefoto and for having adventurous, free-spirited clients who believe in
my crazy ideas.”

Tattoos, Soul & an Awesome Pink Bicycle

Simple, sweet, tattooed Nashville lovelies. I am crazy in love with the pink bike (erm…of course) the vintage records (another trend I’m not yet tired of) and the lake side setting. That water looks incredible and it goes without saying that Rennie & Joe are one hell of a cool couple. LOVE!

I am already looking forward to seeing the results of their Septemeber wedding after Rennie told me, “We have known each other for 19 years (we met at age 11 and were each other’s first kiss), we felt that our engagement photos should showcase the life we’ve built together. We opted to have a simple shoot at our home rather than a ‘location shoot’. Our wedding will be this September and we will feature a 1960’s theme – rock n’ roll, soul, dresses from 1960’s Vogue patterns and vintage motorcycles (Joe has restored a 1973 Norton Commando)”

Walking on Water

You are going to love Soumya & Anil’s photo shoot. Not only is Soumya wearing some of the most gorgeous dresses, like ever, but the backdrop and setting – in particular the way they are reflected in the water, is nothing short of spectacular. Anil is really into working on cars so they had to get that into the shoot too and the contrast between the two themes works perfectly.

Bibliophile

I usually only put one post up on a Saturday, but I have to admit that I wanted to share this engagement shoot as soon as I could…and plus, the submissions have been coming in at such a rate of knots since I posted my How to… Get Your Wedding Featured on a Blog post (which I’m not complaining about of course!) but I do feel like I have a lot to get through this week!

Alister & Rachel are having a gothic & diy wedding on a mountain vineyard in  a few weeks. The wedding is sure to be super detail-heavy and I can’t wait to share it! However their engagement session was actual quite impromptu. “They wanted a Gothic yet bibliophile theme with a twist for the main part of the shoot, hence the books, vinyl and rug. Then for the rest of it, we simply found some killer locations and let them do their own thing; smiling, laughing, whatever went!” photographer Julian told me.

Slightly Damp but Oh-So-Gorgeous Engagement Session

Maura & John’s slightly damp, slightly vintage and more than slightly gorgeous engagement session is totally inspiring! I love how they incorporated the things they love into the shoot – they collect old schwinn bikes, love going for bike rides and are crazy about all things vintage/retro/antique so they used some antique china for a mini picnic setting. Cuteness.

Simply Perfect

Tommy & Meredith are so damn cute n cool that it hurts! I am dying over their simple but perfect engagement session and their matching red and black checks are way-too-adorable. Both artists, it was obvious that they’d have to do something super creative for their engagement session. It just so fun and natural!

Be sure to check out the fabulous ‘behind-the-scenes’ video after the ‘jump’

The Love Boat

I’m so lucky that I get to feature some of the craziest, most alternative and tattoo-gorgeous weddings out there. It’s one of the biggest pleasures of my job! However, occasionally a wedding that may not be the most ‘Rock n Roll’ will hit me between the eyes and give me just as much joy. Tanya & Christan’s Boat Club ‘Love Boat’ wedding at Molesey Boat Club on the Thames has such a simple, love-filled emotion that I couldn’t help but feature.

A Wedding on Water

Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.
