Devin and Nina were married at the Solitude Mountain Ski Resort in Utah, in May. Her completely stunning dress was ‘Josee’ by Grace Loves Lace. “For our wedding day I wanted simple, and unique”, she wrote. “We were exhausted of going to the same wedding over and over and wanted to do something a little different.”
“Our ceremony was simple, intimate and held at the snowy Solitude Ski Resort and the reception was at Frida Bistro. The two atmospheres combined made for a very memorable special day that was perfect for us. Not too formal, and a little out of the ordinary.”
Dean and Helen wanted to focus on the details of their outdoor, camp site wedding. They put their hearts and souls into hand crafting (with the help of friends and family!) a wedding day that really reflected them and everything they love.
“We have been a couple for so long that we wanted our wedding to reflect us”, said the bride, “but we didn’t really have a theme as such. We both wanted an outside venue that people could stop over as there is nothing more disappointing at a wedding when your just getting started and the music gets shut off and everyone goes home. We only looked at one venue and as soon as we found Woodland Tipis and Yurts we fell in love. It wasn’t a wedding venue, but it was exactly what we wanted so we went for it.”
Last week I announced that I am going to stop producing new issues of the Rock n Roll Bride print magazine so that I can work on other exciting opportunities. Since then I’ve been flooded with messages from readers telling me how sad they are to read that news. Well, I’ve got a small, teensy confession to make… I haven’t been entirely honest with you.
The truth is I’ve been having exciting, scary, and every-emotion-in-between meetings with the amazing team at Giraffe Media, the publishing company behind Wedding Ideas Magazine. I am more than a little bit delighted to tell the world that Rock n Roll Bride Magazine will be hitting UK newstands THIS AUTUMN!
I am passionate about proving that when it comes to your wedding, its not what you spend, its how you spend it! Shhh don’t tell anyone, but the nuptials I feature with minuscule amounts of money in the pot are always secretly my favourites too.
That’s not to say that bigger budget weddings are in any way inferior, it’s just that I’m always so impressed with what people are able to achieve with a a lower than average amount of cash to spend, but a higher than average knack for getting creative!
Whatever amount of money you’re splashing on your own big day, I just know you’re going to enjoy looking through this inspiring bunch.

Suzie and Marc were married in Cork in June. They wanted their wedding to be fun, with hints of the 1950s. They were inspired by their favourite movie, The Quiet Man, for their overall retro theme.
“Our wedding was a Irish festival with fifties touches”, began Suzie. “Everything was unique in the sense that we wanted to make it our own and completely different to any other wedding we’d been to. Our venue was Glengarriff Lodge in Cork and was the perfect setting for our wedding as it is steeped in history. It is the former hunting lodge of The Earl of Bantry and is located on a man made island surrounded by The Glengarriff River and one of Ireland’s only ancient natural forests.”
