Neon Hair & Hot Pink Boots: A Vegas Elopement Planned in 10 Days

Katie and Eric had one goal for their wedding: To be married. Even though they’d been taking about getting hitched for a while, they decided to elope in Vegas just ten days before!

“When you elope, the theme kind of just becomes ‘you two'”, said Katie. “Our day was very us – full of colour, laughter and love! When you plan everything so quickly the internet is a wonderful thing. I used Google, Pinterest, Yelp and Rock n Roll Bride to help us find vendors in Las Vegas, a city we are not native to. I made a ton of phone calls and emailed so many people in the days leading up to our big day.”

“The starting point for inspiration was the fuchsia pink velvet mod boots I wore. I was originally looking for silver boots that I had just found online which were from & Other Stories, but then Eric spotted the bright pink ones in the store and suggested those instead. He knows me so well, that must be why I married him! Everything kind of fell into place after that. My flowers and hot pink lipstick all went back to the boots. Even when we were picking out Eric’s navy blue velvet jacket, we thought, ‘Will it look good with the boots!?'”

Over The Rainbow: Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

As issue 14 is now on sale, I thought today I would share some of the bonus photos from our issue 13 rainbow bride fashion editorial. I love putting these shoots together with my amazing photo shoot team (do go and check their websites out in the credits at the bottom of this post, they really are the BEST at what they do!) and although I’ll always prefer to share real wedding inspo on the blog over styled shoots, when you create something you’re proud of its fun to share that too!

The inspiration for this shoot was simple: RAINBOWS! However, as ever, we wanted to put a twist on the trend and do something unexpected. So, rather than throwing all the colours in every shot, we decided to create a colour blocked effect with each outfit.

Below is each outfit we put together. Obviously we didn’t stick to the exact colours of the rainbow, instead going for softer tones such as mint, peach and nude to add a yet another twist to the tale. For the most part we also tried to match each contrasting coloured wig from Annabelle’s Wigs with something else in the shot as well (the nails, the colours in the background) for some added colourful contrast.

A simple dress and pink bob – who knew it could look so incredible?

Mismatched Farm Wedding with Llamas, Sheep and Ducks!

The Wellbeing Farm in Lancashire was the perfect venue for Christie and Kurt’s informal wedding. They didn’t have a colour scheme because they wanted something more organic and mismatched. “We tried not to have a proper theme as we thought more mismatched would be better”, said the bride. “However a ‘no theme’ theme was pretty impossible because when you start buying you naturally gravitate towards similar things.”

The one thing the bride did want though, was lots and lots of flowers. “We are both green-fingered and used to have our own allotment so the flowers were important to us. The Flower Farm were able to provide us with absolutely beautiful wildflowers, most of which they had grown themselves. We wanted flowers everywhere so there were fresh local flowers in every possible vessel including tea cups, tins, jam jars, milk bottles and milk churns. My mum and dad had a production line going. My dad would eat a tin of beans every day and my mum decorated them with lace, twine and wooden hearts for us to use as flower arrangements!”

Colourful Pub Wedding

Laura and Jack’s pub wedding was low key, laid back and colourful. They didn’t want to be restricted by one particular colour or style, we they included a bit of everything they like.

“For inspiration I looked online and in magazines but mostly everything looked quite boring, until I found Rock n Roll Bride!” said Laura. “So I did take lots of inspiration from the website and magazine but mostly we just winged it and picked things we liked.”

The day started with a ceremony at Merton Registry Office. “The ceremony was lovely but seemed to be over so quickly! I was so nervous and excited while I waited, my stomach was full of butterflies. In my interview, the registrar commented on how handsome Jack looked and also how relaxed he seemed, this calmed me down and I couldn’t wait to see him! I walked down the aisle to Be My Baby and as soon as the little drum bit kicked in at the beginning and I saw Jack I totally relaxed. We giggled and kissed throughout the ceremony, a few late arrivals stumbled in half way through and we just laughed even more. Nothing mattered really, and as cliché as it is, we only had eyes for each other. We wrote personal vows to each other, but read them privately in the morning; those words were just for each other.”

Secret Meadow Wedding in Slovenia with the Bride in Pink

Petra and Marijan wanted their wedding to be simple, with a vintage theme, and to be out in nature. They also organised and made everything for the wedding themselves.

“I was building ideas and getting inspiration from Pinterest for a year before the wedding,” began Petra. “However, once we started actually planning the wedding properly it all happened so fast with no delays; we made and organised everything in just two months!”

Their budget was €7000 and the couple did a lot of DIY projects for their wedding. “We made everything by ourselves and we also decorated everything the day before the wedding, which included the entire reception venue and outside where the ceremony took part. The whole of our wedding day was awesome so our entire wedding was our favourite part!”
