Be Afraid..Be Very Afraid…

Because you’re about to see me on video! Arrrgh….

 

As you can see, I’m already trying to take on board everything you guys have been saying in your survey responses.  Surprisingly (to me!) a huge number of you want to know more about little ol’ me..so here we go…my very first tentative steps towards becoming a video blogger!

Arrgh…Just in case you can’t tell (although I’m sure you all can!) I was super nervous doing this, I love having my photograph taken, but being filmed is scary!! No photoshop!  I just wanted to let you know a little more about me and open the floodgates for my new, and hopefully exciting little venture.  Behold…

 

A Bride takes a deep breath and walks with trepidation down a long church aisle.  The classical music swells, a shot of the gathered congregation smiling and her proud father shedding a tear.

 

The classic wedding video – bringing such joy to the married couple and usually such boredom to the family and friends forced to watch it over and over.

When Gareth and I got married we choose not to have a wedding video for precisely this reason.  Quite apart form the fact that employing a half decent videographer can cost as much, if not more, than the photographer, do you really want to end up with something your never going to watch again?  Or worse still are going to keep watching over and over!?

 

However I’m open to convincing.  I want to see your wedding videos…wedding videos that won’t make me barf and wedding videos that show the real you.  One of the first, and only videos I’ve seen and actually enjoyed enough to watch the whole way through, is that of The Unbride, Justine Ungaro and her Husband Gary who alongside their videographers Monachetti, shot a fantastically original, rock video stylee video that I was more an happy to sit through.

 

Come on then, let me have it!

Tacky or Awesome?

I’ve been told a few times that I’m too nice about everything and everyone on Rock n Roll Bride…now, considering I’m not such a heavenly creature in real life  that may be true.  However my argument is, why would I want to put someones wedding up here and slate it? That’s just mean and that not what the Rock n Roll Bride is about.  I’m all about celebrating uniqueness and diversity in weddings!

However, I just discovered Tacky Weddings (via Wedding Skulls) and omg this girl is doing all the bitching for everyone…and I love it!
I personally would never want to slag off someones wedding – I’d just avoid it if I didn’t like it, but you should defiantly go check out this site, either for the hilarity or maybe even for some inspiration (seriously the Gothic and the Hello Kitty weddings are awesome! – I’ve featured one of those Hello Kitty weddings before!)

Therefore I’m just sharing the Hello Kitty stuff here, because I actually love it and it’s tacky brilliance…

Mouse Ears.

A Disneyland proposal makes for Mickey/Minnie ears for the portraits!

Gareth & I are thinking about going to Disneyland in Paris for our 1 year anniversary next month..neither of us have been before and we are both such big kids!

W. Scott Chester – Allyson & Pearce

Numero two from W. Scott Chester…this could be my favourite of the three, but I’m not going to confirm because then I get the guilt. 
Here is a little info about the photographic couple, from Cristen herself:
