everyone! We know Monday’s suck and that’s why we had to share this little gem
with you. It’s not often that you stumble across something that is both so
original and so delightful. This stop-motion wedding invitation was made by Anitra Keogh, a
photographer and stylist, for her marriage to partner Ben. This invitation tells
the story of how they met, how their relationship progressed, and then finally,
details of the wedding. It was made up of close to 1000 photographs and was
painstakingly put together by Anitra.
guests received CD’s of the video, along with printed information in a recycled
cd case. It’s amazing what a little patience, hard work and out-of-the-box
thinking can create! And don’t you just
love the song "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros?
"I wanted an
invite that was ‘us’, that included photos (being a photographer and all) and
was inexpensive! Behold- 994 images that took a day to shoot and many hours to
resist showing you the video and not showing you the wedding! The wedding, shot
by Leo Farrell, was idyllic and romantically set in a forest garden. The
ceremony took place outdoors beneath a gorgeous white awning amongst close
families and friends. We love how fresh, green and vibrant it all looks.
bride look spectacular in her lace gown? We love the elegant bun, teamed with
that gorgeous birdcage veil. And the groom looks so dapper too.
We’re a HUGE fan
of forest weddings and these photographs speak for themselves – how could you
not love this avenue of trees?
A bit of rain didn't seem to hamper the couples plan for an outdoor wedding - blue tarps were
scattered over the tables and added a whimsical touch to the elegant, pretty ceremony décor. We
love a couple that takes mishaps in their stride!
What a beautiful
wedding to top off such a special beginning! So, as we said, was that not the most epic wedding invitation EVER?
