Just a small peek at Holly and David’s awesome retro americana inspired day at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel! Featuring a Day of the Dead wedding cake, a pink Cadillac, and a set of 50’s rockabilly inspired bridesmaids!
We’re heading to Southampton on the blog this evening for a quirky and colourful, vintage inspired wedding (with some sneaky Dinosaurs thrown in for good measure!)
During the planning stages the more I heard from Kari about their wedding day the more excited I was for it! It was also exciting to shoot my first wedding in Southampton, and at a rather cool rustic venue called The Dancing Man Brewery (the ceremony took place at Southampton registry office just round the corner from the main venue).
Vintage loving Kari chose black polka dot dresses for her bridesmaids, with colourful co-ordinating sashes and petticoats (a different colourful for each bridesmaid. Keeping things non-traditional, both bride and groom wore converse for the day.
I think you’ll agree that the couples’ vision for their styling of the venue is just gorgeous. I loved the little dino bride and groom cake toppers created by Kari herself and the records used as place holders (Richard happens to be a graphic designer so he mocked up the song title labels with their guests names!).
They had a super cute first dance to a do wop song before Kari changed into dress number two, a red heart print Vivien of Holloway number, and partying the rest of the night away!
Something I love about my couples is how they’re aren’t afraid to shy away from what a ‘traditional’ wedding should be like. They embrace what makes them them and celebrate their day however way they want to, and they rock it! None more so than these guys.
Super stylish Dee and Stu were married in a low key wedding in Sheffield in April. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest it was a super happy day and it was an absolute joy to be a part of it. Here is just a small preview for now, watch this space for the full blog of this awesome wedding!
Welcome to Netley Abbey! We’ve headed down to Hampshire for today’s blog, a pre-wedding shoot with Kari and Richard. Netley Abbey is just outside the city of Southampton, and is a ruined late medieval monastery, it also happens to be a pictureseque spot where the pair came on one of their first dates! As Kari and Richard had their ‘engagement shoot’ just before the wedding itself, it wont be long ’til you see them returning to the blog again with their wonderful wedding day!
