On the Southbank

I was lucky enough to feature photographer Jodie Chapman in my Under the Spotlight series this week…and now I’m lucky enough to be the blog that she selected to showcase her newest engagement shoot which took place on the Southbank of the River Thames in London. Jodie knew this shoot would be perfect for Rock n Roll Bride and that I’d go crazy for the old books, the London Underground map, the old telephone boxes (does anyone use telephone boxes anymore?!) and the London buses, as well as the various quintessentially London locations such as The Tate Modern (which, even though it’s quite a horrific ugly building, she still made look awesome!)

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.

Contrast & Style

This Australian wedding blew me away as soon as I laid eyes on that dress! Shannon & Carl got married in Brisbane and had a vintage glam wedding full of quirky and classically styled delights. I am loving the multi-layered, uber cute Paul Hunt dress and accessories that Shannon rocked (including her amazing bouquet – le swoon indeed.) Her shoes were from Miu Miu and her beautiful hairpiece was found at Chelsea De Luca. The bridesmaids looked equally vintage-gorgeous in their dresses by The Magical Adventures of Dolly. The locations are to die for – the  glamorous ceremony venue, the Tattersall’s Club, contrasts perfectly with rough ‘n ready portrait site and the super trendy, waterside reception which took place at Riverlife, the old Naval Stores beside the Brisbane River. A wedding of contrasts and a wedding of style.

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 and I love it all!

Braving Wind & Rain

This couple braved wind, rain and various costume changes to get these awesome shots with their photographer Pat Dy. it goes without saying that the results are breathtaking and not just because of the intense scenery.

Day to Night

Anna & Simon actually had two days to shoot their engagements with friend and photographer Steve Gerrard. They hit two locations which gave both sets a completely different look. First up was the quaint English town of Stratford-Upon-Avon (random fact of the day – where Shakesphere was born) and the second at The Custard Factory in Birmingham. I can’t help but particularly love the night time/painting with light shots though – v. cool!

Wet.

Clayton Austin seems to be the new beau of blog land. I’ve seen his vintage inspired shoots on many-a gorgeous wedding blog so when he sent me a slightly more modern feeling shoot to feature I jumped at the chance.

When Marisa & Trey’s shoot was plagued by torrential rain their first reaction was to call the whole thing off. “To hell with it” Clayton said “Let’s get wet!”
