Bridesmaid Bummer

FYI: This post is sort of not safe for work unless if looking at backsides all day is acceptable and/or not really frowned upon. You never know, but just a friendly warning. BUM2

If you’re getting married in the foreseeable future, have you chosen your bridesmaids yet? Be sure to choose wisely, there are a couple considerations to take into account who are your closest female friends who would be willing to help you hold your dress when you need to pee, who will let you be a diva when necessary but who will kick you back into place when you’re being unnecessarily diva-like and most importantly who can drop it like its hot and squats until their bum is rock hard. You may think I’ve lost the plot, but you see if you spend as much time as me on the internet you will see that left, right and centre everyone is sharing this new trend of the bridesmaids (and sometimes the bride) hiking their dresses up for a “fun” shot in a Charlie’s Angels-esque posed photograph.

Themed Weddings : Shrek & Fiona

…because true love means never having to say you’re sorry, or you know, justifying your weird obsession with the childrens movie “Shrek”. Jersey (as in the beautiful Isle of Jersey, not the state/shore in the USA/on MTV) couple Paul and Heidi Bellas got married as Shrek and Fiona from “Shrek”.

Shrek and Fiona

The pair got the idea – and presumably the buckets of green finger paint from their son Leo.

“The essence that is Shrek represents true love, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, if the love is there then that is what it is about.” said Paul.

The couple had to get special permission to get wedded in face paint. Jersey law requires couples getting married need to be identified.

I am truly happy for these two. Clearly, you have met your soulmate if you can somehow find the only other person in the world that wants to get married as “Shrek”. Just in case you were worried that these two would be ridiculed by their family and friends during the ceremony, the rest of the wedding party was dutifully dressed as fairytale characters too.

“I was standing at the altar, there were only three guests in the room and they were dressed up, as the lift opened these people started to sit down but there was one dressed as a Flinstone with big feet.”

Amazingly (sadly), this isn’t the first couple to get married as “Shrek”. In 2009, Christine and Keith England also said their wedding vows as Fiona and Shrek.

Let’s hope they live happily ever after.

Weddings : Geek is Tres Chic

Hi Pouters!

As a sometimes wedding photographer and like an average female I get excited at the prospect of looking at some really unique and interesting wedding themes and photographs.  Nicole Lisanne Weddings and Events by Design styled a specific geek wedding theme called GEEK IS TRES CHIC.

They fell in love with the idea of the scientific geek wedding theme because of the incorporation of a lot of glass elements such as beakers, petri dishes, test tubes, eye droppers, which would all have very good light-catching elements, all of these scientific elements were sourced from laboratory supply houses so that they would be 100% authentic.

Acrylic compartmentalized trays held little silk buggies with pins stuck through them, to make a fabulous but geeky table runner under our centerpieces. The table number was named after the most famous scientific equation ‘E=MC2,’ and was affixed to a tall self-standing magnifying glass sourced from the Z Gallerie. Menus tucked into each place setting were in the format of a scientific hypothesis ‘If first course, then second course, then cake and dancing!

source: Wedding Chicks.

When the guests arrived they were able to sign in at the Periodic Table of Elements! So unique. I wish who ever they are many happy years together!
