After Australian sun, cliffs of Cornwall, sunny barn weddings today something totally different. A wonderfully styled, kick ass, heavy metal inspired shoot styled by Michaela of Clear Hearts and photographed by Paola de Paola.
This couple are strong, daring, madly in love and blissfully married. They’re ready to rock, do shots and dance the night away into eternity.
Their colour choices are a gorgeous winter palette of black and purple, with a hint of silver from intricate patterns of piercing studs.
From a tattoo artist creating matching tattoos, to synchronised headbanging to their favourite song, this shoot is a kick-ass statement that women don’t have to be sugar-sweet to be bridal. Your day is your day, and love is love!
This lovely wedding was send by Harriet and DJ’s photographer – Corina. There might have been winter outside but they had a fun seaside themed wedding complete with a surfboard as a guest book! Take a look and read what brides said about their big day.
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
We met 10 years ago outside my (DJ) friends’ salon in south London. I had popped out for a cigarette and Harriet happened to be strolling past the shop and bravely started a conversation with me about my t-shirt and then followed that by asking for my number. At the time she was only 17 and I was 28 so we decided to go our separate ways after a while. Until we got in contact again and got back together nearly 4 years ago.
Today I’m taking you for a trip all the way to Australia with this lovely styled shoot from Brisbane.
This light filled romantic styled shoot took place on the banks of the Brisbane river with real couple Fiona and Megan playing brides for the day. Created to showcase the contrast of simple pure white daytime styling and warm blush tones for the evening, in celebration of marriage equality in Australia.
Despite being new to being professionally captured, real couple Fiona and Megan shared the most beautiful love filled connection, with plenty of giggles.
The girls looked absolutely stunning with professional hair stylist Kaila from Laa Hair Boutique, creating elegant up styles, and make-up artist Helena Donaldson providing a natural soft romantic look.
Two gorgeous brides on the wild coast of Cornwall – just dreamy!! Photographer Verity Westcott shared this wonderful story and I’m excited to show it to you!
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
We met for the first time in Paddington station London in March 2010, after chatting for some time online.
As soon as we met, we were head over heels in love and have been ever since. We can’t imagine life without each other & the love grows stronger every day!!

We both strongly believe that it is in your moments of decision making that you create your destiny. It is by the decisions that we made throughout our lives that our paths crossed initially in 1999 when, after one too many vodkas in the Polo Lounge led to Linda feeling bold, she asked Tracy if she could buy her a drink. After dating for a few months our lives took us in different directions. Our paths then crossed again in 2013 while Linda was living in Australia (and Tracy’s Facebook stalking really took hold). On Linda’s return from Australia in August 2015 they finally met up again in person and it was clear we were meant to be.
Hope you’re enjoying the wonderful summer! Todays shoot is a little bit different than most of the engagement shoots. As Laura couldn’t join Andy and Adam for their big day, she had an idea to pull all the stops for the engagement shoot – especially that the location was so amazing. She invited other suppliers, styled the whole thing and photographed it beautifully.
Read their story and all about the shoot below!
Andy and Adam met on the 23rd Sept 2009, exactly 8 years later they tied the knot, and they disembarked on a honeymoon of a lifetime at the end of May!
Andy and Adam met in a bar. Breaking all the ‘rules’ they moved in with each other after only a month of dating. 4 months in and Buster their puppy completed their romantic whirlwind relationship.
Adam proposed New Years Eve 2012, on a white sandy beach in Thailand. The fireworks had just announced a New Year when Adam got down on one knee. The perfect proposal stopped there… Adam had borrowed the ring from a friends past relative and lost it almost straight away in the sand… 2 hours of searching went by (Andy disapproving!) and finally the ring was found!
Adam and Andy made their way into a small town to have personalised rings made to remember the time away.
Today we have another cool city wedding – this time in Manchester. Beverley and Charlie’s day was photographed by Marcia’s Wedding Photography.
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Well, it’s a great one! We met at our annual Pride Breakfast that happens before Manchester Pride. I am the sister of one of Charlie’s friends, it was a warm sunny day, we spent the weekend together and then I travelled back home. After a number of years talking and becoming friends I travelled to Manchester to surprise Charlie on her birthday and well…the rest is history!
I’ve been obsessing over House of Ollichon‘s wedding jumpsuits on Instagram for ages! Their outfits are perfect for modern brides who don’t care much about traditions and want to do something other than a big white dress and still look gorgeous and sophisticated. I’m so excited to be sharing with you their advice on picking an alternative wedding outfit perfect for your figure.
The majority of our appointments start with brides telling me ‘I’m just not a fan of the big dress’, ‘I just want to feel like myself’ or ‘I’m a jeans and trainers kind of girl’. Although bridal trends have come a long way in recent years, we’re still scarred by the stereotypical expectation to wear a big white meringue!
Two-pieces have been hot for a couple of years but we have really seen the jumpsuit take off in the last six months which, obviously we are thrilled about! I feel like finally, brides to be are proud to break the mould and be themselves.
Our mantra at House of Ollichon is ‘Be a special version of your normal self’. That’s all our brides want!
We are honoured to have lots of same-sex couples come to House of Ollichon, it’s such fun to style a couple together and it’s the biggest honour as a designer to dress both brides. It’s crucial for couples to be on the same page when it comes to what level of bridal they go for. Our clients often end up going for one jumpsuit and one two piece between them, they’re matching but not the same and there’s no guessing game on who wears the dress and who wears the suit!
Today’s wedding is truly a DYI event – even the flowers were grown by one of the grooms! They made sure their big day was as personal as possible and fun for their guests. It was photographed and shared with us by their photographer Linus Moran.
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
We met online. Things didn’t go to plan with the first few times we tried to meet. Rob cancelled at the last minute on the first few occasions due to work commitments but eventually managed to meet on the third attempt. Steve moved to Yeovil and moved in with Rob not long after meeting.
