A Wedding in the Loire Valley

okay, if you are a regular reader you will know my feelings re: the wedding industry and that my overall hope is that people would have honest, real weddings without the unnecessary hoopla. …but, i had to show you this. because it’s so ridiculously fantastical i almost cannot believe it’s…

Andrea & Luke

just had to share the wedding of Andrea & Luke at her family’s farm netherwood in the natal midlands photographed by my pal Shanna. that DRESS (designed by Tiaan Nagel) and the beautiful vintage botanical decor are quite special.

Wedding At Home

Kristen Marie Tourtillotte is a wedding photographer based in Seattle who got in touch with me recently to share the wedding of Michelle & Ryan, who got hitched at home amongst their friends, family and pets. i loooooooooove this. everything about it is what i love about small weddings -…

Love vs. Design

i really like the idea of Love vs. Design where you can choose templates for your wedding stationery, personalise them  and then have them printed yourself (or get them to print for you). this obviously isn’t a new concept, but the fact is that there are some really nice designs…

Jessica & Luke’s Wedding

so i told you last week that my pals Jessica & Luke were getting married over the weekend. i was a bridesmaid along with Jessica’s twin sister Debra, and also one of the many unofficial official photographers. i’m really happy with how these photos came out – and even happier that i…

this wedding

i wish more wedding photography was like this. simple, no props, no stunts, no bells and whistles – just capturing a real moment. photograph by courtney brooke. i don’t think that dude in the background is a prop by the way.

Tamara & Imar

imar krige is a graphic designer from cape town whose wedding invitations i love – especially those pocket squares.

Being a graphic designer by trade, of course I saw my wedding as a magnificent design project. One of the first things I told Tamara is that I would love the whole effort to be very DIY driven … We wanted every element of our wedding to be one-of-a-kind. We stamped and wrote details on each invitation and thank you tag by hand, cut and tied the ribbon, hand made windmills and made the pocket squares from scratch.

casey & richard

i started following casey’s blog sibling mine last year and noticed her talking about her upcoming wedding a bit on twitter. well now the wedding pics have finally been revealed and it looks like they had an incredibly rad time. we love pictures took the photos and her dress is by abigail betz (wow…

max & margaux

the wedding of max & margaux has been well documented online (you can see the five posts over at once wed here, here, here, here & here). max is a well-known wedding photographer himself (he photographed joanna of a cup of jo’s wedding) and so it’s not a surprise that…

wedding invitation

i designed a simple wedding invite for a close friend who is getting hitched later this year. the end product is actually different colours (plum and navy blue to match her wedding theme) & printed on brown paper. i’m quite partial to the green / blue / yellow combo. the…

bridesmaids

a friend of mine is getting married this year, so i’ve been helping her find inspiration for her wedding (another great excuse to peruse wedding sites, i suppose). came across this wedding on once wed (probably my favourite wedding blog) where the bridesmaids all wore different dresses, but still adhered…
