Jalouse Magazine ‘Fake’ Wedding

Kat

September 9, 2009

So I did some hunting around to find out the true story of the fabulous 'Woodstock Wedding' that I blogged a few days ago. Turns out it was a 'fake' wedding and was set up as an editorial photoshoot for French magazine Jalouse...and the Bride & Groom - wait for it - were actually Mark Ronson and his girlfriend Josephine de la Baume! Don't be too sad though as I have found more photos and a super kitch, uber retro feeling behind the scenes video!

Under The Spotlight – Lara Jade

Kat

August 12, 2009

So I don't usually post a selection of photographers work, preferring to focus on one wedding, engagement or photo shoot instead of a bit of a mish-mash. However I believe I am able to make an exception for Lara Jade. The twenty year old (yes I know!) fashion photographer from Tamworth, UK is quite frankly so inspiring and talented that she really deserves every single image of hers to be posted. Lara's fashion and editorial style is second to none. Just check out these images and tell me you're not in love with them? Unfortunately with her being so fabulous and all, her work is often stolen and used illegally (and yes I did get permission for this post!) If you fancy hearing more about this then I just found this fab BBC video all about it. Thanks to the gorgeous Lara for working with me on the post, and if you are a photographer or vendor yourself and are interested in being a subject in an 'Under the Spotlight' feature then get in touch for all the info!

Local Talent

Kat

August 10, 2009

This is something a little different for me to post but when I saw Rosie Parsons' last few 'detail shoots' I fell in love! The Bristol - based photographer has a great relationship with some fantastic local vendors, from Clara Bows who rents and sells gorgeous vintage crockery, to local florists Bella & Fifi with whom Rosie spend the day dashing around the city delivering blooms in an adorable eco-chic piaggio. Finally I had to share some photographs from Gilly Woo, a good friend of Rosies' 30th birthday a few weeks ago. The birthday girl is also a ridiculously talented dress maker and so not only are the images pretty damn stunning but how retro chic gorgeous is the her sparkly gold vintage glam dress?

Pin Up Vixen

Kat

August 4, 2009

It's nice to break away from all the weddingness sometimes and just spend some time enjoying some non wedding inspiration and Taylor's senior portraits fall smack bang into this category. I'm sure it's pretty obvious why I love these - the colours, the contrast and her gorgeous retro rockabilly style - she has got that pin up thing down to a tee with her fluttering eyelashes and her matt, crimson lips. Can you believe this gal is only 18!? ps I ♥ that egg chair a little too much! Credit: Tinywater Photography

Circus Act Of Colour

Kat

August 2, 2009

Rock n Roll Bride sponsor Michelle of Oeil Photography sent me an exclusive peek at her newest photographic creation. A lucid ballet of light, colour and fabulous fashion, these shots just make me want to dress up in a bright yellow 'cage' dress and get my pose on! Models Rene, Lauren (who actually made the yellow cage) and Tara (of Trigger Happy Photo) seriously rocked this shoot - stepping away from any fancy frou frou weddingness in favour of playing along in their very own circus act of colour, experimentation and edgy fashion.

Fashion Envy

Kat

June 21, 2009

I am jealous, elated and over-excited all at the same time after discovering Piksi's flickr stream. Have you ever seen a girl with such an amazingly polished style? The 60's vibe is perfect for her pixie cute look, I would go crazy if I was to find a wedding in the same style. Imagine Bridesmaids in some outfits like these...<> Some of my fashion highlights of her gorgeous clothes (that I want to steal) include - her adorable heart bag from Minna Parikka, the cream, ruffle-topped dress by IVANAhelsinki and the swing, pleated grey coat from H&M...man, my wardrobe is so dull!

Beth Retro

Kat

June 18, 2009

Beth Retrois a stock photographer from Essex, England. I came across her gorgeous images via the wonder that is flickr and I straight away knew I'd be sharing these as some non wedding - wedding inspiration. Whimsical and beautiful, her use of out-of-focus, twinkling lights and bright, luminous colours is right up my street. She also appears as obsessed with balloon as french fancies as I am so it's gotta be good! For more of Beth's work check out her flickr stream, or herEtsy store of you fancy treating yourself, I know I will be!
