Tattooed Disney Themed Wedding

Tattooed Disney Themed Wedding (45)

Lovers of all things Disney, Sarah and Jerrerd knew they had to have a Disney themed wedding. “We got to Disneyland and Disney World together every year and the movie Up is our favourite”, said the bride, “hence the mailbox and the adventure badges for our pins at the wedding. We also both have Disney tattoos  and our two pups are named Meeko and Tug after some of our favourite characters.”

“It’s also something our wedding party shares in common with us. The morning of the wedding while we were getting ready all the girls all played Disney songs and talked Disney tattoos! Around 90% of our wedding party was tattooed which made for some really fun and interesting photos too.”

Create Your Own Completely Bespoke, One-of-a-Kind Engagement & Wedding Rings with Durham Rose


Finding your dream engagement or wedding ring can be tricky, particularly if you want something a bit different to the designs you see at the big high street jewellers. You might have thought designing your own rings was completely out of reach, but I’m here today to tell you that it’s definitely not the case when you use Durham Rose!

These London based jewellers (previously known as Hot Pink Jewellers) actually appeared on Dragon’s Den with their ingenious concept in 2013, and although they didn’t get investment, they used is as a springboard to launch their business.

The newly named Durham Rose work completely differently to any other jeweller I’ve come across because they don’t have a showroom and they don’t hold any stock (meaning they keep their overheads lower – savings which they pass onto their customers!) They work exclusively and directly with their clients to create them one-of-a-kind engagement and wedding rings.

While most of their clients use their service to design an engagement ring, Durham Rose are also the perfect company for you to look at if you’ve already found an engagement ring you love, but are struggling to find a wedding band that works with it.

Maybe you’ve gone for a really unique engagement ring, but when its come to finding a wedding band that works with it, you’re stuck. Durham Rose can help you create a band that follows the contours of any engagement ring to ensure the perfect fit. They can also match setting work, profiles widths and metal finish so they look like a matching pair.

In some cases they may even take a 360 degree scan of your engagement ring to enable them to import the design into their engineering software and model the wedding ring around it.

Smoke Bomb Elopement in Nevada

Smoke Bomb Elopement in Nevada (24)

Anne-Marie and Patrick flew out to the Nevada desert for their elopement. They hired Victoria of Flora Pop to officiant their intimate ceremony. “I had been looking at weddings on Rock n Roll Bride for three years!”, said the bride, “So I knew I wanted something quirky and with kawaii style for our wedding. We wanted to keep things small and just for us – this definitely wasn’t the usual traditional wedding. It was just like we wanted. About two people in love, not about everyone else, just us.”

“We’d originally planned a big reception at home but planning it was not fun and it was looking like it was going to be very expensive. We had just booked our first holiday to The States two months before our original wedding date so we just decided that we would elope while we were there! It all had to be planned very quickly once we had flights booked. Once I found Flora Pop everything fell into place from there.”

Fantasy Literature Inspired Fairytale Wedding

fantasty literature fairytale wedding (57)

Inspired by their favourite fantasy novels, Sarah and Adrian had a wedding that featured influences from books such as Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Labyrinth and Game of Thrones.

“We first started describing our vision as ‘fairytale’ until we realised the wedding industry had a very different interpretation of the word than we did!”, the bride began. “I would describe it as ‘actual fairytale’, enchanted forest or fantasy literature inspired. It was Harry Potter, Labyrinth and Star Wars with a little The Last Unicorn, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones thrown in!! We are both long term LARPers and share PC gaming as a hobby, so we picked out things we like and mashed them into an eclectic theme. Adrian also carried a replica of Lucius Malfoy’s Cane (complete with hidden wand) as part of his wedding outfit… We definitely went for the ‘more is more’ approach!”

The February wedding was held at Glazebrook House Hotel in Devon. “We were married on the landing of the staircase. I was very fortunate to have the support and huge help of my Mum and sister who run the wedding decor company, Flourish. They decked the staircase in lanterns, foliage and flowers, so it looked like something out of an enchanted castle! Our registrar was really helpful in working out where we would stand and had the idea of having the bridesmaids sat on the bottom stairs which looked lovely!”

Feeling Body Confident for Your Wedding

Feeling Body Confident for Your Wedding2

While body confidence isn’t something you’ll just magically be able to come across just in time for your wedding (it’s a life-long struggle for a lot of us), marriage counsellor and founder of Mindful Bride to Be, Collin Christine, is here today to talk us through some ways you can have a positive body image, for your wedding day and beyond.

Congrats! You’re engaged. Now you’re probably experiencing what most women experience when they get this happy news: “I am SO happy but now I am going to be on display for my friends, family, photographers, and future husband… I better look hot.” At this point a lot of women start to feel overly conscious of their body and start to do crash diets, exercise like crazy, and restrict themselves in mind and body. During this time even of the sweetest of brides might be a tad bitchy because they’re trying to hard to be perfect.

If you want to feel confident in your body on your wedding day it’s time to look a little deeper and make some healthy adjustments. Want to break up with bad body image before your wedding? Try these four tips to have you truly shining on the inside and out.

1. Comparison is the thief of joy

Everyone at some point has something that they wish they could change about their body. When you notice yourself wishing that you had someone else’s body, you’re taking for granted what is uniquely you.

You’re very rare and special and so is your body! Perfect is an illusion so try and ditch that mentality before your big day, and while we all have areas we can improve on, that has nothing to do with your value as a person or how much love and gratitude you deserve.

2. If the only prayer you said in your life was “Thank You”, that would suffice

Rather than spending your energy on wishing you were thinner, redirect your focus to something you already have at this very moment – whether it’s something like your beautiful eyes that allow you to take in the world around you, your ears so you can hear the sound of the ocean or the magic of a great song, or just your arms so you can embrace loved ones and cuddle with your pet.

It really doesn’t matter; the act of expressing gratitude actually has a chemical effect in your brain and makes you happier! Just thank the universe for what you have and you will feel its gratitude in return.

3. You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it

When you’re physically uncomfortable in your body, it’s important to wear clothes that you feel good in. This doesn’t mean you have a license to go out into the world wearing your PJs every day (not that there’s anything wrong with that once in a while), but you should consider clothes that make you feel physically comfortable so you aren’t tugging on them all day.

There is also value in dressing to how you want to feel. If you want to lose weight so you can wear the latest fashions, then wear them already as you are. You will look hot if you feel hot!

I also did it to meet and work with new vendors, which was a great experience.”
