New Contest – Tattoo Inspired Jewellery!

This Contest Is Now Closed

Don’t you just love free stuff? When I clapped eyes on Etsy seller, WickedMinky’s tattoo inspired jewellery I knew I had to have some and I knew they would make a fabulous prize!  So I bought myself a cuuute unicorn necklace and a swallow hair clip and I have to say they are absolutely gorgeous – so cute, so original, so rock n roll!  So maybe you wouldn’t actually wear these on your wedding day, but I know full well many of you may not be getting married for quite some time – so it’s nice to have a new toy to play with in between then and now right?

WickedMinky has donated this gorgeous little diamond necklace…OK so it’s not real diamonds, but I pretty much think a tattooed style diamond is the next best thing! (The amazing bird hairclip is mine I’m afraid..I also bought this unicorn…LOVE!)

I thought long and hard about the competition question for this contest, and actually The Husband came up with this one…I want to know What is your favourite inspiring wedding photograph ever and why?! I want to know which photograph you saw and just thought “wow!” The one you kept going back to, the one you immediately saved into your ‘wedding’ folder (I know we all have them!) It can be a photograph you found here on Rock n Roll Bride or it can be one you found elsewhere (please please please include photo credit with your entry if possible)

And you know what, just because I am aaalll about the sharing, this contest is not just open to Brides-to-be, if you’re a photographer and want to share your favourite ever wedding photograph please feel free! You can enter as many times as you like, but please – one entry/photograph per comment.

I’ve been going though my archives to find my favourite and I have found it really bloody hard to choose just one…so I’ve chickened out and gone for a selection just to get you started…

Because this Bride has some serious kick arse attitude + fabulous tattoos and sunnies

Sorry my posting has been rather light today. Not only did I do a double-shift at work (oh Christ what on earth possessed me to say yes!?) but my computer has decided to be uuuber slow today…highly frustrating when you have so much to share!
Anyway, on to much nicer things….Oh my God do I love Tinywater! Caroline was keen to share this super sexy shoot with me and I am so excited to pass on the joy! This is one seriously sexy, fabulously photographed session…the lighting, the colour, the editing to make it look like you’re viewing them though cctv (naughty!)…it’s just totally Rock ‘n Roll Bride. In fact I have come to a conclusion, I wish that was me and Gareth in this shoot, I would love to have some photographs like this of us.
AAAAmmmmaaazzzing!

Rose Tinted

Jenn & Ron had a gorgeous wedding, perfectly captured by Darbi G and her second shooter Erika Jackson. The photography even gives the day a rose-tinted glow. The resulting images truly appear to reflect the over-all feel and emotions of the day don’t you think? I can totally imagine being at this beautiful, soft, rose-tinted wedding!
Also can you believe Jenn actually made her amazing 2-piece dress (including corset) herself?! Erm..wow.
The henna on her hands doesn’t at all look out of place in among the personal touches and details of this wedding.  Everything feels tranquil, soft, homely and personal. I am smitten!

Fo’ Real

I was never a huge fan of the whole fake moustache at weddings thing that was really popular last year. I think mainly because I just didn’t ‘get’ it? I didn’t (and still don’t) understand what the actual point of it was.
However when it comes to real life moustaches, well that is a completely different matter entirely.  This dude has got one seriously awesome ‘tache going on..coiffed to perfection wouldn’t you say?
Plus his Bride has got some pretty damn cool tattoos so, well, there was no way in hell I wasn’t going to share these was there?

The photographer, Katherine, describes this truly rock n roll wedding:
This couple had the most awesome wedding at Kali Kate in Buda. You’ve seen all the fake mustache weddings where everyone wore a fake mustache -well this groom grew the real thing- which he waxed and combed perfectly.!

Kristin has the best vintage kitchen for shooting still lifes. She’s also a great gardener , so of course she did all her own flowers- from the table arrangements to her beautifully simple bouquet of peony tulips.

She had all of her bridesmaids wore vintage inspired red polka dotted 40’s dresses. And she had a flower fairy instead of a flower girl!

But the best part was the music, a dj spinning real vinyl where he played a song that her Father sang as a opera singer- a surprise for their Father -Daughter dance and the last song was the cool old Pink Floyd song “Fearless”.
