Bridal Soup – The Launch

**Guest Blogging Update**

Not only am I now writing for Savvy Scoop, but Steve at the brand spanking new Bridal Soup also asked me if I’d like to contribute to their site.  Now as you probably already know, I do love a good old ramble about all things wedding, so I would have been rather foolish to turn himdown.   Plus the site is a UK based site – I almost squealed with delight!

After reading so many of your survey responses saying you’d like to know more about me, the girl behind the blog, I suggested to Steve that I write a kind of ‘how to guide’ for the Bridal Soup launch – i.e. how to plan a Rock n Roll wedding…but with your own personal flair (obviously!)

Every week I will be writing a new article, telling the story of our wedding with a few tips & tricks thrown in that I’ve gathered along the way.  I do hope you’ll come see me over there, and will enjoy seeing an ever so slightly different side to Rock ‘n Roll Bride.

This week I’m all about our engagement story.  Enjoy.

Opheila + The Umbrella

Oh how I love the Internet, without it I would never find such gorgeous couples like this to share..what a stunning engagement shoot, and a stunning couple. You’ve gotta love the see-through umbrella too, what an awesome prop!

Casual ‘n Colourful

I simply had to share the details of this beautifully casual beach wedding, the location really can’t be beaten. However I am a little miffed as Gareth is always telling me off for buying so many cushions – but look how many they have!  I also have a serious sunset obsession and this one really will take some beating.

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things…

My ideal engagement shoot would include the following things:

Amazing shoes – any kind of awesome shoes really, I’m not picky
Train Tracks
That ‘sunlight beaming though’ thing that is everywhere at the moment but I never get sick of seeing
The ‘reflection in a puddle’ shot

This shoot by Jill Thomas has all these things, hense why I love it so…

Blatant Favouritism

I really try not to have favourites – I feel like a Mother favouring one child over another…but I’m afraid I have to admit, Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel is probably one of my all time favourite photographers and blogging buddies (sssh! Oh God, now I feel totally guilty!)

We met (as in online met) probably about a year ago when the old (RIP) Rock ‘n Roll Bride was still going, and I remember Tara telling me how she was desperate to shoot a really Rock ‘n Roll wedding…well finally I think she has got her wish!
Tara uses a combination of Holga and digital work, creating a unique and beautiful perspective of the world and a totally different take on the usual wedding photography.

The main reason she sent me this wedding was due to the shoes!  How on earth did she know I would love them?!
