Alexandria and Jacob’s Farm Wedding 08.09.2014

This wedding combines rustic style with timeless handmade touches and the great outdoors.

Alexandria and Jacob wed on a charming farm in Pemberton, British Columbia, Vancouver. Their ceremony was held in a field with hay bails, burlap and over-sized balloons. This was followed by a cocktail hour, which included axe throwing and crochet.

The reception was set inside a rustic open aired barn lit by candles and strung fairy lights. The couple chose locally grown flowers for the tables and continued the theme by hiring local caterers, serving locally grown food, and providing beer brewed in Vancouver.

The clever bride designed the wedding herself and included paper cranes, glass bottles as vases, and even a salvaged wooden board that she made into the seating chart.

Anastasia Photography captured the wedding and tells us “Jake and Alexandria were lovely to photograph. The rest of the evening included the lighting of Eco-friendly paper wish lanterns and a barn dance that went on into the wee hours of the morning.”

This wedding makes us seriously ponder the inner workings of the bride’s mind, “how can one lady be blessed with such design awesomeness.” As far as we’re concerned, the over-sized flower bouquet, the plaid flannel shirt and the open aired barn are all golden ideas.

The 80′s Never Looked So Good 30.06.2014

Are you ready to geek out over the 80’s era? Here’s an 80’s inspired wedding shoot that will give you a mighty good excuse to do just that.

Three Little Birds Studio captured this shoot and explained, “As barn loving, outdoorsy photographers, we wanted to breath a little new life into the traditional neutral coloured, soft, barn wedding and have a little fun.

We got our inspiration from our models mothers wedding dress. That’s right, this gorgeous dress is straight out of the scrunchie wearing, bright coloured-loving 1980′s. Although this dress does feature the signature ‘poofy sleeve’ they fall gracefully off the shoulders, which gave it a hint of free loving prairie girl. So with the 80′s color and funk, and a hippie sense of earthy-ness we ended up with a bright, fun, new take on not only the barn wedding, but we also like to think we are bringing the 80′s back. Who knows [we’ll] maybe start a trend taking bridal pictures in mammas dress.”

Rachael and Amon’s Fitzroy Wedding 31.03.2014

Tears of happiness, that’s how much we love this Melbourne wedding.

The stunning couple wed at the Good Shepherd Chapel where Rachael’s sister-in-law, Katie, sang ‘Fools Rush In’ as the bride walked down the aisle in a gown made by Melbourne couture designer Helen Manuel. Amon waited for her at the end of the aisle in a custom Cerulean Blue Ralph Lauren suit and black bow tie. The colourful bridesmaids picked their own dresses, while the groomsmen wore a floral print Paul Smith shirt and bow-tie and suits from their own closets. After the nuptials, the couple were whisked away in a friend’s 1975 black mustang convertible for photos.

Oli Sansom Weddings captured the charming wedding and commented, “The inspiration behind Rachael and Amon’s wedding came from their combined personality traits. The whole day mirrored the type of people that they are. Rachael being a whimsical creative type and Amon being a sophisticated traditionalist type, they wanted a wedding that felt both formal and informal at the same time.”

The lovely bride used her background in graphic design to design the silk-screened poster-style invitations, the reception decor and the overall styling for the day. She used a loosely applied floral aesthetic to achieve a little bit of cohesion in the bridal party, and let the colour do the rest of the talking.

The charming reception was held at the Fitzroy Town Hall, which encompassed both a formal and informal vibe. The bridal party decorated the steps of the Town Hall in colourful streamers as guests arrived and greeted guests with the couple’s favourite cocktails – the French 75 and the Cadillac Margarita.

The inside of the hall was adorned with unstructured bouquets of wildflowers in jars designed by florist Emily Bourne, while colourful fruit and vegetables were laid out on the tables to mimic a Dutch still-life painting. Table numbers and candles were a quick DIY project that involved painting white numbers on jars and taping parchment paper around.

As for the food, the couple chose a delicious tapas menu created by Sorella Foods. The menu including some of the couples favourite dishes like meatballs, mac & cheese, and meredith dairy goats cheese. To save a bit on catering costs, the couple also asked family and friends to make an array of delicious deserts and cakes.
