Amazing engagement and wedding photography from We Not Me Collective!

Wedding photography can be run of the mill but sometimes you come across work that sends a shiver down your spine. That happened when I looked at the work of Tom and Anita from We Not Me Collective. Their work is so natural and sensitive. It picks up on all the finer details and captures all the emotions of the day. 

This is what they say about their Collective:
Photographing people is what we enjoy the most - especially when those people say ‘I do’. We like to keep things simple, natural and fresh. We let the events of the day unfold and photograph things as they happen. We don’t start directing you (except when we take your couple portraits) or your day, this way your wedding flows smoothly and the pictures happen naturally. We live in London, and we will happily travel anywhere in the world for your big day. We also provide beautiful bespoke handmade wedding books, photo booths and more.

I was blown away by the engagement video they had on the website. Very evocative work.

Jewels By Design London Dazzling us at Miss Vintage Wedding Affair!

Jewels by Design is the creation of Louise Needham. Since she was a young girl she has had a love of old beads and buttons and she would spend many hours playing with a box full of them (which her mother had also played with years before!)

Louise has worked in the antique trade for eighteen years. She started her business in the London markets such as Camden Passage, Bermondsey and Covent Garden. During this time she had collected many pieces which have been broken, forgotten and generally unloved.
She says: “The pieces I use span across the decades from the 1900s to 1960s. I like to think of the journey these items have been on and of what stories they could tell!  Everything I design is a one off and for many women knowing they have something bespoke makes it extra special to them. I design headbands, tiaras & hair combs for weddings, prom nights, and other special occasions. 
I also hand make a range called “Love Is…” which are designed from vintage 1930s pearls & original clasps with two charms. As the bracelets have been so popular (especially for presents for bridesmaids) I have brought out a necklace collection as well which is based along the same themes. I have created a collection called “Button Bracelets” These antique buttons which are made from French Jet, celluloid, glass and brass are matched with original pearls and crystals of single or double row and set with vintage clasps. Truly unique and guaranteed to never find another one these bracelets are in constant demand. I attend vintage fairs and wedding fairs to showcase our items where I take along my working boxes for clients to dig through (no girl can resist a dig through a box of sparkles!) or perhaps someone has a piece of jewellery left to them which I am happy to incorporate into a design for a really personal commission. Each and every item carefully designed and crafted to bring each bride a very personal experience.
Louise also carries an extensive range of period costume jewellery which makes fantastic gifts and which will add splendour to any occasion!
