No, this is not the latest Kooples campaign, although it could be.
Kezia and Joel were married six years ago and decided to celebrate their anniversary with some keep-forever images captured by their original wedding photographers M and J photography.
And why not? you know what I think about preserving memories, you should, as often as you possibly can.
This is a sweet and heart-warming love story for a wintery afternoon lovelies. Enjoy.
Kezia: Joel and I met in the beautiful small town of Penzance in Cornwall, where I grew up. We were both still very young but got married 18 months later on the beach in front of St Michaels Mount. Although it’s 6 years ago now, we still have such good memories of the day and thanks to Jonny’s wedding photographs we are able to look back on it like it was yesterday.
When we moved to London just the other week, we thought it would be so lovely to mark the big move and our anniversary with some photos of us in our new neighbourhood. Mainly so we could look back on them in years to come, but also so we were able to share some nice photographs of us with family and friends back home in Cornwall and elsewhere.
Shoreditch is just down the road from our flat so it made sense to do the shoot there. It’s such a cool area and Jonny and Morgane agreed that there were plenty of spots there that would make a nice backdrop for photos.… View the full post.
We actually covered this subject a couple of years ago, since then apparently 1 in 3 recently married couples* met on the internet.
Surely on-line dating can no longer be a taboo/a fact folks don’t want to admit to for fear of embarrassment?
I know quite a few of my friends and certainly weddings we have featured right here on these very pages are world wide web love stories, including the make-your-heart-melt engagement of Emma and Mark which I’m going to share today.
Have yourselves a read lovelies – there’s nothing like a happily ever after to brighten up this grey October afternoon.
Emma The Bride: Mark and I met the modern way… Online. I have now grown to love saying “I got him off the internet”.
It was Easter 2012 and after much protest about how I would “never be one of those people” I decided to give in and so I put a profile online. I was horribly judgmental. I apologise. Errrrrr… I’m still apologising.
The reason I gave in was because my beautiful friend had encouraged me. She herself had found her own happiness and was about to be whisked away on a mini-break by her newly acquired online boy so I thought maybe I should give it a go… Hell I wanted to be whisked away!
Still feeling slightly skeptical, I wrote a profile that was epic. War and Peace epic. In the hope that if anyone bothered to get to the bottom of it and respond then maybe, just maybe, they could be the boy that I was searching for…
Mark was the boy.… View the full post.
Hello Everyone… We hope you like our latest feature RMTV…
We’ll be bringing you loads more tutorials, how to features and other pieces of inspiration-in-motion really soon.
Always have, always will. Perhaps it’s nostalgia (my Dad always sported a beard right into his fifties – which meant he always looked way more like a member of the Bee Gees than a dentist) or maybe it’s that whole slightly “undone” association you get with the unshaven that seems to be my favoured aesthetic throughout life (interiors, fashion, beauty….) whatever it is, I know that given the choice I would always always choose a man to have a subtle stubble than that clean soft-skinned sheen.
Fascinating O’Shea, What the bloody hell have beards got to do with weddings?
Well, quite a lot actually as it happens. Soon to be brides spend a considerable amount of time considering what make-up they will wear – whether to indulge in the full on flutter of false lashes, which foundation will achieve an imperceptible finish that won’t make your mug appear all melty should W-day happen to reach anywhere over 25 degrees. What lipstick will look pretty yet won’t smudge all over your chin when you go in for the “I now pronounce you husband and wife” smacker. What mascara will define and Bambi-fi you yet won’t run right into your blush should you become all teary during the speeches…..etc etc
But what about the boys? What do they have to make a decision on except for their barnet?
Well their beard situation obviously. And I don’t mean necessarily whether or not it’s a good idea to imitate Captain Birdseye (should this not be their usual choice du jour) I mean whether to go forth with a Twelve O’clock shadow or at least a few days of growth – should they sport this on a regular basis.… View the full post.
You may have already heard about the round-the-world W-day trip of Alex and Lisa of “Two People One Life” fame, the couple who are on a mission to get “married” in as many different countries and locations as possible to raise funds for UNICEF.
If you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about then Lisa has provided us with the details below – this is literally the adventure of a lifetime.
This afternoon we’re sharing the film of their 41st (!) big day in Ireland which has been beautifully captured by Reuben from Show and Tell Cinematography. Seriously folks, you’ve GOT TO SEE THIS, the location is beyond breathtaking and the simple organic styling made Lolly and I do some kind of jumping up and down/clapping with joy sort of routine in the middle of RMW HQ.
Lolly and I (in no particular order) “I want a crown made just of leaves!!!” “I want to get married again just so I can wear an oversized sequin jumper!!!!” “I want a fishtail plait that is that HUGE!!!!”
I guess you could say we REALLY like it.
Lisa The Bride: Back in the year 2000 I met a boy. I didn’t know it at the time but that moment changed my life. I know it sounds like a cliche and absolutely like cheese on toast but it’s completely true!
We were friends for years, eventually lovers and then went our seperate ways for a while…well…for 5 years!
After both of us going through some wild relationships we caught up again for a drink and instantly knew we should have never let each other go.… View the full post.
We don’t share engagement shoots very often, and when we do they often have quite a detailed account of how the couple met, the lowdown on the proposal and the general plans for W-day.
Anna’s account is very short and to the point. I liked it, very much indeed.
Don’t get me wrong, we relish in the opportunity to share the worlds greatest love stories with all of the bells, whistles and fairytale fanfare, it’s part of who we are and what we do.
But sometimes all you ever really need are a few sentences of stripped down fact, the bare bones of why that one person stole your heart and made it theirs.
From a purely aesthetic perspective these images are HOT. I would very much like Anna’s dress, leather jacket, sunglasses, accessories AND hair please.
And apart from the the obvious physical attributes of both Anna and Martin you can see clear as day just how much they fancy the sexy pants of each other.
Anna: I am from London, Martin is from Poland. We met nearly 6 years ago….In the gym. He was my personal trainer.
Last February on my birthday ( I am a leap year baby and I had a real birthday last year!) Martin proposed on the bench where we had our first real date, on Hampstead heath at sunset.
I was not a photographer when I met him, nor had I though about being one. It is because of him buying me a camera because he saw something in me, that I became who I am today.… View the full post.
