50s style wedding

First up, this wedding is fab. Playful, silly and fun. And I love the 50s feel to it all. But it's the photography and mainly the photographer that's the real reason I wanted to post it.

I discovered Al Overdrive through Rock N Roll Bride and after checking out his website and blog I knew I wanted to add him to my list of suppliers.

I'm usually a fan of the soft focus, vintage photography, all nude palettes and tulle like fabrics, if you read lots of wedding blogs you know the ones I mean. However, I really like Al's use of colour, and the clean, sharp images.

Al's not your typical wedding photographer ( no white round tables and tacky chair backs here), he started in forensic photography and he recently won Best Photographer by the UK Tattoo Industry.

And he doesn't just shoot weddings, oh no Mr Overdrive (not his real name by the way) photographs for music and fashion industries too.

I love that people like Al bring their skills to the wedding industry which until recently has been saturated with samey sameness. So don't delay people, go and check him out!

And another cool groom

How fab is this groom and his men?

Think Huckleberry Finn, perfect for a barn&farm wedding.
Simple rustic chic.

Retro wedding party

The clients from this fab wedding party had a super elegant and intimate wedding at Beauberry House on the Friday and wanted a totally fun and colourful party the next day. A brilliant idea if you can't decide what type of wedding to have (and have the money to do both)!

Julia bought the decorations she wanted and I went along to style it for her so she and her hubby could turn up relaxed and stress free to start her second party.

Here are some iphone pics...

Julia (the bride), works for Wedding magazine as an art director and is a wedding photographer herself. See her blog for more about her work.

Super cool groom

So the whole of the wedding is wonderfully chilled out and relaxed, (see it at the fab Green Wedding Shoes) but this groom deserves special mention.

Love the colours and that waistcoat is awesome.

I think its brilliant the way it's becoming more common for grooms to get as much attention stylistically as their brides.

Vintage typewriter as guest book

One of the best ways to show off your creativity at your wedding; or ensure you'll have an original keepsake to look back on in 30 years time is the guestbook.

It's becoming increasingly popular to make the 'guest book experience' a feature of the wedding and one of my favourite ways has to be the vintage typewriter.

Totally gorgeous and pretty amusing when guests get tipsy.

What you think? Like it, or do you prefer more traditional guestbooks?
