Last week I announced that I am going to stop producing new issues of the Rock n Roll Bride print magazine so that I can work on other exciting opportunities. Since then I’ve been flooded with messages from readers telling me how sad they are to read that news. Well, I’ve got a small, teensy confession to make… I haven’t been entirely honest with you.
The truth is I’ve been having exciting, scary, and every-emotion-in-between meetings with the amazing team at Giraffe Media, the publishing company behind Wedding Ideas Magazine. I am more than a little bit delighted to tell the world that Rock n Roll Bride Magazine will be hitting UK newstands in January!
When I got engaged, I rushed out and bought a stack of wedding magazines, but instead of filling me with inspiration, I was left feeling disappointed. While their features are beautiful, there’s still a distinct lack of inspiration for anyone who wants to something a little bit different. Where are the same sex weddings? The coloured wedding dresses? The affordable DIY ideas?
I started Rock n Roll Bride in 2007 as the antithesis to the mainstream wedding media, and I quickly discovered that I wasn’t alone in my thinking. The UK wedding industry needed one hell of a shake up and I was ready to do it! It’s amazing how everything has come full circle.
FINALLY, there will be a nationally available monthly magazine for brides like you. There will be glorious real weddings, amazing DIY ideas, wedding planning tips and advice articles a-plenty.
I’ve never been more terrified in all my life, but I’ve also never been so excited. So, are you looking forward to strolling into your local supermarket and picking up a copy!?
