Wild and Wacky Weddings

When it comes to planning their nuptials, white gowns and a swing band just won't do it for some couples.  If you are looking for a more exciting and unusual idea for your wedding then here are some possibilities for you to consider.

Naked weddings

More comfortable in your birthday suits than other formal wear? Celebrate your love for each other the way nature intended with a nudist wedding.  Um, we just don't recommend getting too excited!

Photography Interview with YZ Photography

Choosing a wedding photographer can be a daunting task.  We interview wedding photographers from around the world in order to showcase the different styles available and to share advice from the experts! 

This week, we talked to Yakir, from YZ photography in England.

How did you first get into wedding photography?
I started my career in photography as press & events photographer and also did some writing. Family matters were the main incentive to move into wedding photography. I worked for a short period for a guy who had a wedding photography business, learned the basics and then decided to branch out on my own.

A Feathered Wedding Theme

Feathers may be a surprising touch to consider at a wedding, yet they seem to have crept into every element of wedding planning over the past year or so.  From dresses to decorations, cakes to invitations.  Here are some of our favorite uses of plumage at a wedding.

The Dress

When it comes to feathers and wedding dresses, no one does it better than the French-Libyan designer, Elie Saab.  His couture gowns are always extravagant and glamorous, and have been worn by celebrities such as Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez.  He is also a favorite designer for brides lucky enough to be planning a high end, luxury wedding in Europe.  His latest creation was for Rhianna at the Grammy awards.
