Marianne features in the retrospective of David Wedgbury’s work called The Beat Goes On at SNAP Galleries in London. David worked at the height of the sixties beat boom, and he photographed many of the best mid-sixties British artists, including David Bowie, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Small Faces, Eric Clapton and many more. The exhibition, gathers together some of his most iconic photographs, alongside some very special previously unreleased material including this image of Marianne.

The Beatles’ iconic Abbey Road album cover was photographed on this day, 8 August, in 1969! These are the six frames snapped during the roughly 15 minute photo session by photographer Iain Macmillan, courtesy of Snap Galleries.

Friday, 8 August 1969: “At 11.35 [GMT], with photographer Iain Macmillan balanced up a step-ladder in the middle of Abbey Road, John, Ringo, Paul and George strode across the zebra (pedestrian) crossing just outside the studio gates while Macmillan snapped away. The Beatles crossed the road several times while he took six quick shots, a friendly policeman obligingly holding up traffic. A while later, Paul studied the transparencies with a magnifying glass and picked the best of the six for the sleeve of Abbey Road.” - The Complete Beatles Chronicle by Mark Lewisohn

Sofia Vergara’s life seems like a big ole party — and her wedding to Joe Manganiello was, too. For her second trip down the aisle, the Modern Family star did away with some of the tradition, and kicked back to just enjoy herself. See photos of the happy couple and their 400 guests, including A-listers like Reese Witherspoon and Channing Tatum, celebrating #Jofia at The Breakers Palm Beach resort in Florida on Nov. 22.

The Happy Couple 

After an action-packed weekend with friends and family, the Colombian beauty, 43, and the True Blood actor, 38, made it official at 7 p.m. on Sunday night, November 22nd. 

Dressed for Excess 

The bride wore a custom Zuhair Murad Couture design as she walked down the aisle. It was no surprise — the brunette bomb loves his creations, wearing them for many high-profile events including the Emmys and Golden Globes. It took 32 employees 1,657 hours to make it and it featured approximately 11 pounds of sequins and 6.6 pounds of pearls, not to mention 350 crystals. 

Give Her Away, Give Her Away, Give Her Away 

Sofia’s son from her first marriage, Manolo, 23, walked her down the aisle. 

Mother and Son 

Another shot of the pair, who are very close. They’ve even appeared in an ad campaign together.

Wedding Wonderland

Famed party planner Mindy Weiss orchestrated the indoor event. The couple recited their own vows in front of a minister and Bible passages were read in both English and Spanish. 

They Did!

It was the party planner who snapped this photo of the newlyweds walking back down the aisle after making it legal.

Dancing Queen (and King)

The couple’s first dance was to “The Way You Look Tonight” — and you can watch it here.

Pitbull in the House

Mr. Worldwide was a surprise performer.

In Sync 

Another sweet shot of the happy couple taking a spin on the dance floor.


Vergara’s Modern Family co-stars were in attendance. In addition to Ty Burell, Eric Stonestreet, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (with his husband Justin Mikita), Julie Bowen, Ed O'Neill, Ariel Winter, and Sarah Hyland were all there. Other guests included Vergara’s Hot Pursuit co-star Reese Witherspoon, Manganiello’s Magic Mike co-star Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan, True Blood’s Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, as well as Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Reception Besties 

Jenna Dewan bonded with Sarah Hyland at bash. “Definitely my long lost little sister. The sweetest girl ever!” the Supergirl actress wrote. As for the happy couple, Mrs. Channing Tatum wrote, “Congratulations to the most unfortunate looking couple! so happy for you both.”

A Flower or Two

Celebrity florist Jeff Leatham put together the very elaborate decorations, including pink, green, and white roses, orchids, and hydrangeas. The bride carried a bouquet of orchids.

Let Them Eat (a Giant) Cake

Famed New York cake designer Sylvia Weinstock was in charge of this display of deliciousness.

Hostess With the Mostest

The bride greeted all the guests, young and old. 

Love in the Air

The couple spared no expense, even providing hair and makeup for all the women attending. With 400 guests, maybe half women, that is quite an added expense.

Their Hands Are Full!

Guest List!

Some of the guests who made the trip to Florida include Reese Witherspoon, who shared this photo — including her son Tennessee — on the hotel property.

Her Other Man 

Vergara’s on-screen hubby, Ed O’Neill, gave her a kiss at the pre-wedding dinner on Saturday night.

I saw you were open for prompts! (I like reading the snippets you post--they're always way cool) I love your KHR Sense8 AU, so maybe something like "one person's weird, random hobby turns out unexpectedly useful for someone else in the cluster"?

this took so long because i couldn’t figure out how I wanted to do it and then I got An Idea.

:What the actual fuck is your life Xanxus?: Bianchi says, barely able to speak around her laughter, once Xanxus asks. :I mean, really.:

Xanxus rolls his eyes, and then ducks and rolls himself under the attacking monster.

:I don’t even want to know,: Dino says, but he sounds both horrified and intrigued, which means he’s going to be watching the entire thing through Xanxus’ eyes, and might end up visiting, because he’s that kind of lazy asshole.

:I didn’t ask for the peanut gallery,: Xanxus snaps, dodging another attack, :I asked for the brats to help out,:

There’s a sense of doubled sighs. :I can tell you how I would navigate this level in the game,: Tsuna says, sounding troubled, :but I’m not sure that ‘s the way to win. You might do better to break the rules. I mean, you’re capable of a lot more than a video game character.:

:I’m working on figuring out how this place is put together,: Shouichi says, sounding harried, :but a lot of this is just me guessing. I can’t personally work on applying Flames to architecture.:

“At this point, I’ll take what I can get,” Xanxus says, pausing for a split second to send a bullet right into the monster’s forehead. It screeches, and keeps coming.

:Right, well then,: Tsuna says, :those guys are annoying, it’s gonna require elemental damage to take them down. Fortunately, you like setting things on fire….:
