I’ve never wanted to shave my head, but if I looked as gorgeous as this bride I might just change my mind! Marta and Yuri were photographed in Tenerife by Sttilo Photography.

“This was shot in the Canary Islands”, the Spanish photographers told me. “We love to visit different, magical lands so we went to Tenerife, eager to explore its corners, endless roads, and the red and black rocks on the slopes of Mount Teide.”

1960s Wedding in Germany

1960s wedding in Germany (25)

Victoria and Matthias were married in in Braunschweig, Germany. Their wedding had a distinctive 1960s vibe to it. “We had peachy, cream and gold colours”, the bride said. “Our inspiration was the fashion and music from the early 60s, as well as scenes from The Virgin Suicides. I especially the colours used in the film and the homecoming scene. I also looked at actual wedding pictures from the 50s and 60s. I particularly love Priscilla Presley’s wedding day look!”

Victoria wore a short wedding dress with polka dots on and a homemade veil. “My veil was made by my mom”, she explained. “We ordered some extra dotted tulle (the same one that the dress was made of). Our inspiration was authentic vintage veils. I also made the wedding cake myself. I love to bake so I thought it would be more personal to make my own. As wedding favours I made peach jam.”

Victorian Gypsy Wedding

Full-blown themed weddings are definitely getting rarer. Most of the couples I speak to say their weddings were just styled around “random stuff we liked”, which is cool, but there’s something a little bit extra special about weddings where everything fits perfectly together.

Jordan and Emily had a Victorian themed wedding and their attention to detail was incredible! “We achieved our authentic décor by extending our antiquing and thrifting sensibilities to more than just the attire”, the bride began. “We created the majority of the decorations by reusing old items. I put together an assortment of decorations for the tables which were were made with small candle holders and foam balls covered in gold flowers and painted ceramic spheres on top.”

The wedding was held at Farmin’ Betty’s in Columbus. “We were married outside, underneath a tree on the property. The ceremony itself was brief and our officiant even joked about the overly verbose sermons often delivered by other ministers at weddings. Ours was more personal and to the point. It celebrated our individuality but also focused on how we complement one another.”

Autumnal Brighton Wedding Planned in Four Months

Autumnal Brighton Wedding (20)

Brides wearing non-white dresses are becoming more and more commonplace (yay!) and nothing thrills me more than seeing and sharing a beautiful babe rocking her own style on her wedding day. When Carina married Jay she decided to wear an original 1930s black floral dress from Hope and Harlequin. It went perfectly with their autumnal theme!

“My dress was an original 1930s metallic lame gown with replacement vintage black lace for the back panel”, she explained. “I think wearing a non-traditional wedding dress made the wedding feel very personal to me plus the choice of reception venue was quite unique. My earrings were the letters ‘C’ and ‘R’ to represent my new married initials and I made my flower headpiece myself. I foraged some of the foliage as well as bought some.”

There is nothing more certain in (wedding) life than the fact that photo booths make the party go off! Even the most camera shy people will be in there, rocking some silly props and laughing their arses off all night long. Trust me!

The Photo Booth Guys are purveyors of one of the best photo booths in the business. I’m quite the connoisseur don’t you know and their booths tick all of my very important boxes. The camera and lighting is flattering, its quick and easy to use, and doesn’t take up too much space. They even offer this amazing techy thing called InstaPrinta where you can use the booth to print out your Instagrams. We actually used this for one of our Blogcademy workshops in Melbourne last year and believe me, it was a HUGE hit. If you’re having a wedding hashtag then you need this!

Unlike enclosed photo booths, ours let everyone in on the fun and are also downright stylish to boot. Guests pile in and pull their best poses, inspiring each other with increasingly crazy shenanigans!”

Rainbow Carnival Wedding in the Rain

Be still my rainbow-loving heart! If you don’t utterly adore this wedding then, quite frankly, I just don’t know why you’re reading Rock n Roll Bride at all. With just $5000 to spend, Mika and Calvin pulled off what might be one of my favourite weddings ever!

The day took place in Ohio at The Little Red Schoolhouse. “Our wedding theme was simple: Carnival!”, said the bride. “We wanted our guests to have fun and have good food. So we had pizza, snow cones, cotton candy and popcorn! We wanted a wedding that was fun, colourful and that people would remember. Which is why we did our pictures at Coney Island in Cincinnati.”

OK let’s just stop and talk about Mika’s dress for a second because woah! “My dress was originally a white simple tulle dress from Wendy’s Bridal in Cincinnati”, she explained, “I got it off the rack for $500, and since my budget was $1000 I was happy I’d found one I liked for half the price! I had it altered by sewing rhinestones around the top and strands of rainbow tulle on the skirt. I turned it into my own fun style. The seamstress also sewed a patch of my grandpas shirt (my something blue) in a heart shape on the back.”
