Drum Roll Please!

I am so excited to announce the winners for our amazing free wedding photography contest.  We had so many amazing entries that it was actually nearly impossible to choose just one winner but we finally came to a decision and chose Vana & Damien!  They have won an engagement shoot and all their wedding photography on the day!  We loved this couple’s enthusiasm and over-excitement about all things wedding and had some amazing and totally unique ideas about what they want their wedding to be…and isn’t that what a Rock n Roll Wedding is all about?!

Vana & Damien are a amazingly cool couple from Newquay.  They are having a “tattoos, gingham and rock n roll” affair right by the beach in November.  They are also getting matching tattoos the very next day in their get up and we can’t wait to photograph that as well..it sounds amazing right?!  Vana’s dress also sounds fan-bloody-tastic but I don’t want to reveal anything in case Damien is being kept in the dark!

Woooohoooo well done guys!

On another note – I had a few entries from couples in America, and I was so sorry that we couldn’t fly out to do your weddings too!  However, good news for you all…Edyta Szyszlo emailed me this morning to tell me she is launching a free wedding photography contest for US couples…so get on over there and enter!

Erupting Onto The Yorkshire Dales!

Sometimes really weird things happen and this is one of them..well maybe weird is not the right word, but coincidence.  I was sent the link to this wedding by one my my wonderful readers Nibi.  I checked out the photographers site (which I always do when I’m sent something to blog about) and realised I have actually been photographed by him myself!  It was one of those family photo shoots you have…the photographs came out pretty cool and we’ve still got one on our living room wall – maybe I’ll share them one day.
Anyway, as usual I digress!

Suzie and her rock star hubby Alex (check out his band, The Eruptors on myspace) married at Danby Castle in North Yorkshire.  The Bride Suzie said of their Rock ‘n Roll day..

I think the main idea of our wedding was getting a colourful and eclectic mix of our rock n’ roll and traditional aesthetic. I also think having me and my friends come from northern California brought something that stood out as different and a cool contrast in that very North Yorkshire landscape.

We’ve had a lot of the friends and family who came tell us it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever attended and that it was beautiful and unique. It was quite a feat for essentially planning the whole thing in a little over 2 months! To me, the best part was how intimate the whole day felt. I felt truly in love and surrounded by love.
Aww…cute!

A huge thank you to Nibi for winging these my way!

A Barcelona Elopement

I am SO excited to finally get to share Terri & Sebastian’s Barcelona elopement with you.  The couple actually discovered David through Rock ‘n Roll Bride and so it’s only fair that I get the first, exclusive post of their wedding photographs.  Seriously guys, David is bloody amazing..these photographs really do speak for themselves!
Clicky here for David’s blog post on the event
and clicky here for Terri & Sebastian’s engagements

David told me to post which ever ones I wanted..so I’ve gone right ahead and posted practically every single one! I hope you enjoy my largest photo post ever!

Oooh and I may as well take this opportunity to remind you that you have just over a week (until 31st March) to get your entries in for your chance to win free wedding photography from David.  We have had some truly amazing entries so far and I already don’t know how we will choose, but keep them coming anyway!

A London Love Affair

I love London I really do.  It’s grotty, and cold, and rainy, and the people are rude but I just love it…

So when Chanelle of Segerius Bruce Photography sent these my way I couldn’t wait to share share share.  As with those gorgeous Julia Boggio shots, the London Eye had made me feel all patriotic (even though I’ve never actually been on it and most people who have say it’s actually pretty boring!)

This lucky couple split their wedding over two days! On the 13th December, Keata & Jason tied the knot at Morden Park House and had this gorgeous photo shoot straight after.  Then on the 20th December they had their full reception near Wimbledon (including the big white dress bit by David Fielden.)

I’m loving this Central London photo shoot.  For more info and for the Wimbledon reception click right here…

Thanks Chanelle!

Doing The UK Proud!

I’ve been chatting to Helen, the Bride in these fabulous Rosie Parson photographs.  In one of her emails she send me the link to her wedding…wooohooo!  As soon as I clapped eyes on these photographs I knew I’d seen this amazing wedding before (I’m thinking  maybe on Offbeat Bride) and I’m guessing many of you will have had the joy of them already too..however I see no harm in sharing the gorgeousness just in case some of you haven’t had the pleasure of this amazing looking wedding.  If anything I certainly wasn’t aware that this was a UK wedding – gives me hope that there are flippin’ awesome weddings happening all over the UK I just don’t know about them yet! (don’t worry my wonderful US readers, I will always love you too!)

Thanks Helen!

London Calling

I admit defeat, blogging less is an impossible task for me.  I just received these fantastic photographs from UK photographer Julia Boggio.  I’ve lusted after Julia’s work from a far for a while now, and as I said last time I featured her “If you haven’t seen Julia Boggio’s amazing work yet you really really need to.  You need this in your life!”

Th ceremony of this quitensentailly London wedding took place at The Guards Chapel, St James which made for some fantastic (and cheeky) snaps (the Queen’s guards are not allowed to react to anything going on around them, they can’t smile, flinch or anything – I love being British sometimes – what a weird tradition!) 
The Bride wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and made her own fascinator for the evening part of the do. She wore a veil for the ceremony and then changed headpieces for the evening.

I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I have – seeing the London Eye in these shots makes me feel all patriotic!
