Hello my dears and welcome to the first Thursday Treats of the new decade! Just as big, just as inspiring and just as fit to bursting with links and fun a-plenty. Let’s crack on shall we?
♥ 2010 may only be in it’s infancy, but it has so far been a very exciting year for Rock n Roll Bride! Not only was I featured in Cosmopolitan Bride, was included in Bride Tide’s prestigious ‘100 Wedding Blogs (and Twitters) to Follow in 2010’ awards, (#1 under the ‘Offbeat’ section – hell yeah!) but I was lucky enough to be asked to model for the infamous Julia Boggio and her Vintage Boudoir series. I braved the snow yesterday and headed up to her Wimbledon studios for a day of fabulous retro hair & make up, styling to die for and to pose and pout my little ass off. I can not wait to share all the details and the photographs, but for now, why not check out my sneak peak shots that I took of (some!) of my outfits with my new favourite toy.

Ryan & Cha Cha’s engagement session blows everything else out of the water. An eclectic, colourful, hilarious, circus, wonderland styled shoot looks like absolute crazy fun.
A sugarcane plantation in Northern Cebu was the perfect backdrop for our quirky theme of vagabond lovers. Hats, clown figurines, a colored umbrella, truck load of clothes, bicycles, and a purple teddy bear. Pure craziness in the middle of nowhere!
The UK may be currently crippled by snow (again!) but the residents of Nebraska are more than used to the cold – even so far as to some being crazy enough to brave the -12 °C temperatures to shoot a smoking hot, red themed trash the dress session. I salute you! The bride, Taumi, bought her dress online at Bridesave for $120 (that included gloves) and her veil was ordered on ebay for $12. Bargains! I love the daring flashes of red with her tights, shoes and cardigan – they certainly add something extra to the snowy scened shoot. Right, so who wants to come to Rock n Roll Bride HQ and do a snowy bridal shoot with me today!?
Amanda & Nick has a super chic, totally personal, 1950’s inspired wedding. From Amanda’s cute polka dot dress from Unique Vintage to the beautiful retro style photography by Made u Look Photography (which even included one roll of black & white film from an old film camera – remember those!?) the whole day ooooozes authentic, rockabilly charm. The rest of the wedding party’s clothing came from Daddyo’s and Stop Staring Clothing and everyone got pumped and ready for the big day by listening to classic rock n roll music. I just know you’re going to love it!
After running a free photography contest on her blog (hint: enter mine!) photographer Laura Ryan was lucky enough to find Rebeca & Martin – two rockers from Boston who wanted her to shoot their red-themed wedding. Rebeca’s dress and Martin’s coat were handmade by her friend who created it for her from a 1950’s pattern and Rebeca even made her own hairpiece. The whole wedding had a old English teatime theme so everyone wore stylish hats, ate finger foods and drank tea to their heart’s content in the beautiful historic building of Boston College Club, complete with cascading staircases and baroque style wall paper.
Sarah & Jeremy’s cute engagement session made me swoon with it’s classic, retro (slightly) geeky and quirky nature. The record store location provided the perfect backdrop for the pair who love music and all things funky and cool.
