Check this out: the Mini Cooper at 00:45, the groom built himself. Now that’s a way to show your love. If that’s not cute enough, the voiceover is a love letter he wrote to his bride. I watch a lot of these, but something about this got to me. Be Authentic Photography‘s keen camerawork certainly helped, but I think it’s the love part. So make sure you have someone close by to hug and enjoy the film!

…Every once in a while, as photographer/film makers, you are given the opportunity to capture an amazing story. Richard and Stephanie’s wedding was that opportunity. They have an amazing love story. Rich in his effort to bring Stephanie’s dreams to life endeavored to hand build a vintage mini car for their wedding so he could drive her away in it. He did just that and you can see it all right here. Their story is incredible and worth telling and we had that opportunity.
It was not mystery this would be a stunning wedding. Set in the lush green land and historic area of West Sussex England, it provided for a breathtaking vintage wedding. The ceremony took place in a beautiful small traditional English church complete with bells ringing and all.
Later the beautiful couple escaped to the reception located in a beautiful large barn on a private farm that had been renovated to host special events. Its deep rich old oak beams and large wooden doors set the tone for a memorable evening filled with cake cutting, speeches, dancing, and an incredible sparklers exit that was truly one of a kind. It’s the kind of wedding that will not be easily forgotten.

… This shoot of rustic, bohemian and natural wedding inspiration was born on the benches of the river Thames where the air is fresh, herbs are splendid and the river is creating a soft glow around all objects by beautifully reflecting and diffusing sunlight.
Our idea was to create a unique blend of natural elements like moss, leaves and flowers with lightweight naked Victoria sponges, innocent beauty of a young bride, kids and all shades of the rich foliage of English gardens.
We set up a tea table for two under a tree by the river on a vintage tablecloth (family heirloom of Katja Berg) , using some beautiful china and cakes, all generously decorated by fruits and flowers, and a big moss tree – a signature decoration detail by our florist Katja.
A retro bike, an umbrella and a pair of wellies in retro yellow colour added to the whole mise-en-scène the character of the English countryside and the refreshing feel of the weather outside.
Our model wore rich flower crown and a loose matching bouquet all in warm pale palette. Flower style and inspiration is by Katja from Bergdorf’s, she is a very talented Danish florist with a distinctive chic rustic style.We used vintage tablecloths, vases and china, vintage veils, handmade designer hair accessories, and the garden of a famous London boutique hotel.

…The theme was ‘early 20th century english glamour’ and we tried to create a bit of a story around two strangers coming together in marriage. The models had never met before, so they appreciated the irony!
We shot at Iscoyd Park, which is a beautiful and intimate grade II listed country house in Shropshire, England. One of the main reasons we chose this location was because of the elegant reception rooms and finely decorated bedrooms, all with tall georgian windows giving an abundance of natural light. The perfect setting for an intimate wedding. The grounds of Iscoyd Park are delightful and fortunately the light was perfect!
We dressed a long slim table in the main reception room with a trio of tall floral centrepieces. The bright pink roses and red winter berries were coupled with wintry foliage resulting in a pleasing mix of warm and cool tones. The fabulous black and white wedding stationery was designed by Project Pretty.
We created two different looks for the bride, with two beautiful Justin Alexander dresses and different headpieces & hairstyles. The groom wore classic black tie.
