2011, The Year That Was {Part One: January – June}

Two full time jobs quit, 795 blog posts written, internet idols met and a mammoth trip to America under our belts – phew we’ve made it to the end of 2011. Oh what a year it’s been, where do I even begin?!

As we hurtle towards 2012 with open arms, I thought I’d go back through the blog and share my top 12 weddings of the year, by month, as well as a few personal highlights that I’ve hit along the way. 2011 has been a HUGE year for Rock n Roll Bride but here’s to making 2012 even bigger!

Boy oh boy I feel giddy just thinking about what’s round the corner (one HUGE ASS thing in particular, I’m sworn to secrecy but I’ll be able to share it soon I promise).

Be sure to pop back tomorrow for part deux, July – December. I’d also love to know what your weddings of the year were and why in the comments section below. Happy New year lovers!

January

I left my job as a TV producer to run the blog full time (you can see a video of my farewell here, oh how we cried!) I also launched Rock n Roll Bride TV. I wanted to do some video blog posts as I love watching other people’s myself. Gosh though, this year has been so mental I really haven’t done as many as I wanted to. I’m going to try to resurrect this idea next year if you fancy it? You can see all the Rock n Roll Bride TV episodes here.

Our wedding was also featured in Wedding Ideas Magazine for a second time (!) and I tried my hand at floristry.

I modeled for the incredible Magpie Vintage for their brand new vintage clothing line… I even got on a horse! (full shoot here)

I came up with the concept for and organised the Big Fat Wedding Bloggers photo shoot, a collaborative project to show just what the UK wedding blogging industry has to offer. It went down incredibly and was featured in at least two mainstream media magazines. I also attended Mark Niemierko’s infamous Valentines Party at Browns Bride.

I exhibited as a special guest at the first Designer Vintage Bridal Show and I got to meet so many of my readers in two days, it was faaaabulous!
