I’m pretty sure none of the adjectives flying around my head as I look at these images can do justice to this ridiculously, spectacularly, awesomely, fantastically, edgy and wicked shoot!
Alma & David got married in New Orleans and had a cowboys & indians style wedding! The pair actually acted as models in a workshop for 25 photographers who want to learn new techniques and to photograph a couple as cool as they are.
The colour and fun of this stunning wedding really made me smile – oh and isn’t Aubrey, the bride, totally hot too?! I adore her cuuute short dress and birdcage veil combo. The shots of the wedding party in front of the blue house are also too fabulous for words – they make me want a bright blue house…actually strike that – it is of course a bright pink house that I want!
And I mean geeky in the BEST way possible! I am a huge geek fan (and I even married one myself) Emma & Daniel had their very own geek fest wedding incorporating everything they love – gadgets, games, Japanese culture…and CAKE (seriously this sounds like my husbands dream wedding!)

First off a huge thank you to everyone who voted and especially to all the other bloggers and Rock n Roll Bride fans who blogged, facebooked and tweeted about the contest. Love you all!
Right…on to the juicy bit – announcing the winners! As always it was a very close call and at one point there was only 0.14% between first and second place (eeek!) However, as we know, there can only be one winner who will receive a faaabulousa trash the dress shoot of their own design with the awesome Erica Berger…and those winners are….(dum dum duuuuuum!)
Kelly & Sam with their zombie love fest!
Congratulations you guys. Erica will be on touch soon to make all the arrangements! Woop Woop
Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
“It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it. It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history. It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”
As I said on Thursday in my treats, I wanted to scan a few of my favourite real weddings and fashion shoots from the latest issue of Cosmopolitan Bride to share with you all. Not just because I’m mentioned in it (hehe) but also because Cosmo is by far the coolest, quirkiest and funkiest wedding magazine in the UK. It is in fact the only one I still buy. To everyone over the pond and beyond I hope you enjoy this unashamedly girlie delve into the world of the British bride.
