The Wait Is Over

Hurray!  I’ve been waiting to see the result of this wedding ever since I posted this couple’s amazing engagement photographs what seems like forever ago.  I had an inkling the Bride must be a Disney fan due to the large array of Disney themed tattoos she’s sporting (perceptive hey?)  The couple got engaged at Disney World and so carried this theme though out their princessy wedding day.

A Wedding To Make You Smile

Tattoos make me happy.  Tattooed Brides make me happier.   Tattooed couples in love make me swoon.  What else do I love about this wedding?  Well just looky!

Country Casual

If like me, you’re a huge fan out the country casual, outdoorys, hippy chic wedding, then you’re going to go doolally over this wedding.  All the rustic yet stylish details are going to send you nuts!

Toy Story

Hurrah for acting like big kids on your wedding day!  Kathy & Antony wanted too do something different for their wedding day portraits and where better than the place they had their first date?  However this couple’s first date wasn’t at the cinema or at a restaurant, this couple went to Toys “R” us!  It certainly makes for some super fun, super cute shots!  Adorable…

Getting To Know You…

As I mentioned before, the very lovely Jennifer has asked me to be a weekly guest blogger on her new blog Savvy Scoop.  I’m the Monday morning gal so be sure to check in every Monday for a brand new instalment!

However, I am well aware that I have a lot of brand new readers floating around R’nR Bride at the moment, so I thought what a good time to let you know (or re-know if you’re old skool) who I am and what I’m all about (basically I wrote this for Savvy Scoop and I liked what I’d written so much I thought it’d be unfair not to share it with you guys too!)

 

Rock ‘n Roll Bride promotes individuality and general awesomeness in a cookie cutter, pastel pink, poufy dressed wedding world. Don’t let the wedding industry define your day – let *you* define your day.

I’m Kat AKA The Rock ‘n Roll Bride.  I’m a pink haired, tattooed, Britney loving girl who has a rather sizable obsession with weddings…oh and yes you did read that right.  Britney.  As in Britney Spears. I love her.  Don’t mess…Britney and 24 are my weaknesses. Just leave it ok!?  I thought I’d let you in on my dirty little secret right from the outset as I hope we can have a frank, open and ultimately a friendly blogging relationship.  I’m afraid despite my Rock ‘n Roll persona, on the inside I am most defiantly a bit of a loser!  That brings me quite nicely around to my thought process behind R’nR Bride.

I started the site as a mini blog for me to gather my wedding planning thoughts and ideas when myself and my Gareth (my computer geek, super sexy husband – you’ll get to know him soon I’m sure) were planning our wedding for last April (seriously I still can’t believe we’ve been married nearly a year!)  I didn’t really think many people would want to read my scrapbook-esque random rambling blogging, but for some reason people did, and they liked it.  So the blog grew and grew, past the actual wedding day (which was fabulous, amazing, the best day of my life btw) and morphed into this big giant official Rock ‘n Roll Bride wedding blog.
Oh, and before I move on I must stress this,the most important thing about me and R’nR Bride…

 

To be featured on my site, you don’t have to be cool.  You don’t have to be ‘out-there’, you just have to be you.  (I’m pretty sure we have already established the ‘cool’ thing as I let you in to my Britney love right from the outset, but I just wanted to be sure)

 

So that’s me.  I’m 24 (25 next month) and from the UK (let’s say London – I work there and live pretty near there and it’s really much easier to say London as I’m pretty sure you won’t have heard of my actual hometown..Reading) so I will apologise right now if any of my British slang cuts through and you have no bloody idea what the bleedin’ ‘eck I’m talking about (see?) But please feel free to say ‘huh? translation please!?’  I won’t be offended…very little offends me in fact so don’t be scared.  One last thing I have a Maine Coon kitty called Akira who is actually the cutest thing in the world (although I’m pretty sure he’s in a bad mood with me right now) so if you hear (or should that be ‘read’?) me talking about Akira that’s who I’m referring to.

I am very much looking forward to my Savvy Scoop blogging adventure…and I hope you will join me on it. Taaadaaa!

 

See you there next Monday peeps!

 

One last thing (I think the sleep deprivation is getting to me, I am rambling even more than usual today) if you haven’t already I want to know about you..yes that’s right you there!  Just fill out this super speedy 5 minute survey for automatic entry to win some freeeee shooooes!

BBQ Bride

I feel my role in this post should be a minimal one, because after reading the Bride’s super informative and diy-tip friendly post about her wedding, I feel I would be stepping on her gold sandaled toes to re-hash her words!  (Oh and plus I am now super tired as I’ve been up since 4am…see posts below!)

So all I am going to add are these handy hints…diy, backyard bbq, cupcake, photobooth amazingness, tux t-shirts, short shift dress ($190 from here), mint lemonade, fruity centrepieces…Mmmm
