A Truly Personal Affair

Emily & Rodolfo’s sunny Chilean wedding sung to me with happiness! Now I understand that doesn’t really make grammatical sense to anyone other than myself, but the yellow theme and perfectly personal vibe of this day really made me happpieee. The photography was done by the couple’s good friend (and bridesmaid) Kyle Hepp  and Emily’s crazy-stunning dress was made by High Bride.

Under the Spotlight – Beyond Beyond


As you begin planning your wedding, one of the first things you’ll be thinking about (after the dress of course!) is the invitations. They’re the first thing your guests will see in relation to your wedding and the perfect invitations will set the tone, theme and vibe of your Rock n Roll wedding day. It’s my pleasure to introduce to you today one of the UKs latest and greatest invitation designers on the block, Amma of Beyond Beyond. Enjoy!

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Amma, and I am an invitation designer,graphic designer and web designer.

Where are you based and where in the world can you send your work?

I am based in London, but as long as you are in a country where you can get UPS I can send your invitations to you; I might not travel, but the invitations will.  And if someone wants a wedding website then I don’t have to send anything at all! Well, nothing except for the link.

Can you tell me a little about the process of your custom design service?

Generally, I like to have a face to face meetings, but when time or distance makes it impossible then the telephone and email are my friends.  When it comes to wedding stationery it is important for me to communicate with the couple so that I can get a sense of their personal aesthetic.  This ensures that what I create is both personal and unique.  Story telling is a core element of my work, so, if there is an idea that is at the heart of the wedding or something that is significant to the way in which the happy couple got together, I like to weave strands of that into my final piece.

Does the client have complete control over the design or do they pick from templates?

I like the client to have as much input as possible.  My designs are generally from scratch.  I encourage my clients to be ‘design detectives’ so I gently push them to find things that they like that represent who they are, and tie in with their wedding theme.

Creative & Fashionable London Engagement

Marianne Taylor  is one of my favourite UK photographers, not only because she’s an utter sweetheart (we’ve enjoyed many a night out and done an amazing photo shoot together) but because she always sends me her most Rock n Roll weddings and couples!

Rose & Brendan are exactly the kind of funky couple I love – cool, chic and super stylish (I think I recognise Rose’s funky platform black shoes as a pair I lusted over in Topshop). Whenever I feel sad that I’m not in America with all your cool, creative types I will look at this session and be reminded just how damn awesome us Londoners are too!

Big Bloggy Announcement


Credit: B Wright Photography

EEEEEeeeeeeek! I can hardly contain myself – so much so in fact that I am interrupting today’s regularly scheduled programming to tell you all my big news.

Over the last few months Rock n Roll Bride has literally blown the hell up (in a good way!) I’ve met so many amazing people, featured a plethora of gorgeous weddings and photo shoots, written for and been featured in some of the best magazines in the UK (and abroad – watch this space) and being glamorised in some awesome photo shoots. So it’s my absolute pleasure to let you know that my work have allowed me to go part time.

I’ll be honest, working full time job has been pretty damn hard over the last 6 months and I am brimming over with excitement at all the time I’m going to have to make Rock n Roll Bride BIGGER and BETTER for you, my darling readers. I’d also like to give a special shout out of love to all my sponsors, as without them I wouldn’t be in the position to take a cut on my full time wage. Go and give them some love by clicking on their graphics to the right of this post. There are some seriously awesome photographers and Rock n Roll wedding vendors for you to swoon over.

I. Love. You. All!

Finally, what am I going to do with all this extra time? I have ideas forming already and if you have any comments or suggestions then please feel free to drop me an email or comment below and let me know.

Rock n Roll Oz Day ~ Eloping in Vegas, Married in Sydney

Sarah Kate & John got married in Vegas with only their closest two friends as witnesses. They were hitched in a 50’s diner by Elvis and rounded off they day at The Venetian Hotel and with a ride on the gondola.

A few weeks later the pair held a intimate and gorgeous wedding at Camellia Gardens in Caringbah in the south of Sydney for their immediate family and 10 of their closest friends. Sarah Kate wore a black dress from Bridal Collections Erina, leopard print shoes from Leg Avenue Shoes and amazing limited edition cupcake earrings (there were only 100 pairs made) from Omerica Organic.

The bridesmaids wore hot red dresses imported from The States and boys were allowed to wear whatever they liked because John didn’t feel right making them wear anything specific – they just left it up to them to do their own thing!

Aren’t these wonderful? What a gorgeous couple and wedding party! I am smitten…
