Eccentric, Retro & Kitsch

Chen Lie & Thom got married in Oz in a crazy, wild and fun party way. She is Australian and he is British (they now live and work in Prague!) so they decided to head over to Chen Lie’s hometown of Perth for their 1960s/70s/John & Yoko inspired wedding.

“I had been living in Korea on and off for the past 9 years so it was exciting to return home” Chen Lie told me. “We planned a simple elopement with a romantic 60s theme in the park but it turned into a wedding due to the kindness of family and friends.  Everything was a gift from he photographer to the catering.  It was a magical day.  The day before the wedding my Made of Awesome took us vintage shopping and surprised us by paying for Thom’s vintage 70s Yves Saint Laurent suit and my vintage 60s hat.”

The Glorious British Summertime

How much do I love Hayley & Lucas’ adorable English countryside engagement shoot? Almost makes me proud to be British! The ever-lovely Lisa Devlin captured the couple in Sussex as they wanted a countryside location and with the yellow flowers, Hayley’s outfit and the glorious British summertime light (yes, it does happen sometimes) the scene couldn’t have been more perfect.

Over the last year or so props have been massively popular in weddings and photo shoots however Hayley & Lucas wanted to keep their shoot simple – just them. They did opt to bring some flowers though and Donal at Pollen came up with the spiky posy of zingy yellow chrysanthemums to contrast beautifully with their rural, natural setting.

Lydia & Zonte. Cool as F***

Wow, hello beautiful people! Lydia & Zonte may well be one of the coolest couples I’ve seen in ages. Lydia is South Korean (and must be a model I swear!) and Zonte is a dancer. They live in Kansas City, Missouri but are getting married in South Korea on August 7th.

I seriously can’t wait to see this wedding – if these engagement shots are anything to go by it’s going to be one cool ass wedding! Do I have the coolest readers or WHAT!?!?!

(be sure to also check out Zonte dancing in the awesome/cute/funny little video after the ‘jump’)

Roll Up, Roll Up for Vishaka & Dean’s Incredible Circus-Inspired Wedding!

This is a wedding I have been looking forward to featuring for over a YEAR! I first heard about Vishaka & Dean’s plans for a circus themed wedding from their friend Rhiannon Burton of Under the Cherry Moon who was designing them some custom invitations and props for the wedding. I knew from chatting to Rhiannon all that time ago that I would love the wedding and I certainly wasn’t wrong!

Vishaka & Dean got married last summer (The wedding has been featured in this month’s Brides magazine, hence the epic wait until I was allowed to feature them!)  in Corsley, Wiltshire. The theme for the day was a circus-inspired day of fun. There was dressing up and a trampoline; there were hay bales and a secret treehouse with munchies hidden in it; there was a strong man and a lion, a lucky dip and a big top and come the evening time there were smores, sparklers and a bonfire. The tables were named after different circus acts and the place names were badges that the guests could wear later.

Vishaka & Dean even made the strong man and lion backdrop and 15 guests entered cakes to their baking competition, which provided desert.

Aaaaah-mazing. I certainly think it was worth the wait don’t you? Be sure to check out the full vendor list after the ‘jump’ and all the images – the attention to detail is utterly incredible.

Mad Hatter Rock n Roll Bride ~ Candy Floss, Beach Huts & The Great British Seaside

It’s that time of immense excitement for me again, when I finally get to share with you a ‘lil project I’ve been busying myself with behind the scenes. Unbelievably this shoot has been in the pipeline for over a year but it’s only now that I’ve had the time to get it all organised properly!

The Photographer
I first met Eliza Claire just over a year ago at the very first ‘Rock n Roll Bride meet’. We met in a teeny cocktail bar in central London. We drank cosmopolitans and mojitos and talked way into the night about business, photography and changing the face of the UK wedding industry…and look how far we’ve come in only a year! At this first meeting we talked about doing a photo shoot together and would you believe it’s actually taken this long to get it together. However, as always, the wait was so worth it as within the past 12 months we’ve got to know so many more amazing people in the industry, a few of which we asked along to join in the fun.
