We had New York love in the morning and we’ve got event more of the big beautiful Apple this afternoon, come on lovers and cop a load of this.
And what is all of the ‘this-ing’ about? Well, we’re only at the wedding of Dan and Fay it is the tale of two cities (well at least countries) with an English Rose heading to NY – which is oh so fly; to marry the love of her life.
The incredible pixels and the rest of this fairytale in New York comes from the shutter candy king that is Shaun Taylor Photography:
Families from both sides of the Atlantic came together in New York City for the marriage of English rose, Fay to native New Yorker, Dan.
The day began for the bride at The Highline Standard where she was joined by her Bridesmaids – capturing her preparations from sunrise, and then joined the Groom at The Waldorf Astoria where a pre-ceremony glass of bubbly helped Dan disperse any nerves.
Following their beautiful ceremony at St Barts, Fay & Dan made their way by vintage car to the reception venue at Studio 450. The loft provided the perfect setting for a stylish gathering of their loved ones, with the sun setting across the New York skyline as the celebrations really got underway. They rounded off the day with Shaun capturing some fabulous portraits on and around Times Square.
Less talk and more pixel rubbernecking – if you can make this festive with a hotdog, or Reese’s Pieces or something to stateside your afternoon tea; then do it post-haste and settle in to enjoy some stellar photography of a simply beautiful wedding.See Some More Post a comment (3)
If you have a good memory you may just remember this adorable couple that we featured on Beyond Beyond a little way back. Well they are back and this time they are… MARRIED! We made that seem ominous – but really it’s beautiful, it’s time for you lovely people to step into the world Olivia & Lekai.
The lens queen behind this shoot, Maureen du Preez, shared: They had a sweet & meaningful ceremony at their church in Harrow, West London. Their reception was held at St Paul’s in Ealing & the venue was decorated beautifully with wild flowers, tweed & bunting.
The day was also filled with fun, quirky touches. The couple hired a fish & chips van to feed their guests, with a vintage-style ice-cream cart for dessert.
They also had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony as the groom’s family is from Malaysia. Olivia got a lot of her wedding ideas from Pinterest & is now a self-proclaimed addict! Her family were a bit help in making her dream wedding possible, her mother even arranged her stunning bouquet!
So you want to know more about who else was behind this gorgeous day newlywed and pinterest addict Olivia said:
We used Casablanca Hire to rent a lot of stuff, including tables, chairs, table covers, glasses, jugs, plates etc. Basically anything you need in terms of equipment, they have it. Whenever I thought of something else we needed I would just call them and they’d happily add it to our order
A lot of the decoration we did ourselves, my Mum did all the flowers, including the bouquets. If people plan on doing their own flowers we’d recommend using the Convent Garden flower market, it means an early start, but it is well worth it.
We used Fish and Chip Catering for our fish and chips. They were AMAZING! My Mum wasn’t sure about how good the fish and chips would be if they were catering to so many people, but the fish was fresh and the chips thick and crispy! It’s also a cheaper alternative per head than a classic three course meal-
For dessert we used the Matt Benecci Ice Cream Co. It added asome extra fun to the wedding and there was plenty of delicious ice-cream to go around for everyone. -
We had an amazing band called Our Dad play in the evening, they’re a jazz funk band and everyone enjoyed dancing to their music. It was the perfect music for a warm summer’s night! -
Even though it was a lot of hard work using an empty venue, and literally designing it from scratch and setting up the venue the day before, it was well worth it when we saw the end results. The whole day was perfect and better than we ever dreamed it would be.See Some More Post a comment (4)
It’s pixel porn o’clock it is, porn is our word du jour as evidenced by the cake post – we jest, but there is some sweet love making happening but it is to your eyes only… we were going to draw this metaphor out, but we’ll just stick to laughing out loud all the things we can’t say in a blog post. The florid abuse of the written word and superlative posturing that we wanted to drop on this post is well a bit wrong.com… yes even for us.
We’ll let your minds have a little bit of fun trying to guess what we might like to say:- but it’s not about the lewdness of our words, it is all about the power of pixels; and the art of visual storytelling is delivered to you this afternoon by the one and only Igor Demba.
Igor shared that this was: ‘One of those days where great people get married! Lucie and Warren got married this summer in the countryside of Worcester and it was a day and a half.’ the gorgeousness of every pixel, this lovely couple – and there incredibly loved up day gave us some seriously butterfly in our stomach moments.
Lucie’s bride style is flawless gawwwwwjus – we are wildin’ out over the Irregular Choice footwear candy, and the gown *dress swoon* from London Bride Couture. We’re tired of telling you to have a cup of tea (all that caffeine, what are we doing to your teeth). But, this pixel epic-ness deserves some full skive time and attention and some popcorn. So lovers of wedding – let shutter candy begin.See Some More Post a comment (4)
