Badass Las Vegas Elopement

This wedding is an actual dream, so much so that we almost feel like we are not worthy (we said almost…) After they’d booked a bucket-list holiday to Hawaii with a layover in Vegas, Jen and Bryan decided one night that whilst they were there, they may as well get married.

With the same laidback, badass approach, they planned the Las Vegas elopement of dreams: a chill morning getting ready together, walking through the Bellagio casino to their limo, and getting married in A Little White Wedding Chapel, in all of its vintage Americana glory. You can feel the heat bouncing off the sidewalk and the buzz and excitement of Vegas coming through the screen in these photos from Ed Godden – and yet at all times, Jen and Bryan look impossibly cool.

Jen and Bryan…

How did you meet, and how did you get engaged?

We were both involved in the BMX world – Bryan used to build skate parks and Jen used to photograph events for a well know energy drink company so we had crossed paths a few times, although Jen never remembered meeting Bryan.

Elvis + Priscilla Bridal Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine…

Priscilla + Elvis….

Earlier this year I styled on a fashion editorial shoot alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride for Rock n Roll Magazine.

Alex said ‘Approaching the fashion styling for this shoot I wanted to put myself in a modern day Priscilla’s shoes rather than focus on replication. There are Sixties influences throughout but with a contemporary twist. The stunning scalloped lace detailing on the Katya Katya Shehurina illusion dress and the bow details on those incredible Charlotte Mills bags and shoes are undoubtably retro in feel.

It was such a blast to then take a masculine approach with our beautiful model. The King of Rock & Roll has had such a mighty influence on both men and women’s fashion. And of course there just had to be a tassel element. This Otaduy ‘I Do’ embellished leather fringe bridal jacket is all kinds of amazing. It was important to maintain a subtle sass throughout the Elvis aspect so you’ll note touches of lace, elegant heeled sandals and delicate jewels.’
