Mark & Maryanne had their garden tea party wedding in Maryanne’s parents house in West Chiltington.The vintage vibe of the day with carried throughout with DIY, classic vintage and country garden ideas. The bride’s dress which was original vintage from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company. “I found a beautiful 1950’s dress that I had customised” the bride explained. “It originally came with a lace cape, but my fab seamstress turned the cape into sleeves and added a bit of sparkle with some old glass buttons that I found from a little junk shop in Sussex.” With this she wore Emmy Shoes, a customised vintage veil (made from a 1940’s hat) jewellery made from original vintage piece and bag from the 1950’s.
“Mark and I met in a little Indie club in London when we were 20,” Maryanne continued. “It actually took us nearly ten years and three children later to make the big decision TO DO IT. It really was my worst nightmare. I was so scared of all the white fluff and general fuss that came with a wedding. Our little family were ever so happy just as we were. To be frank we are all a bunch of geeks really and the whole wedding thing was just not us. We were a little gang that loved Indie music, books, cake, car boots and Crosswords. Definitely not weddings.”

This morning I have a special announcement and I’m thrilled that I can finally share my latest project with you. Over the past few months I have been working with the wonderful Abbey of Sugalily to create an exclusive (and of course awesome) piece of Rock n Roll Bride memorabilia for you guys.
Have you been stressing with your wedding planning? Getting all in a cafuddle about to what you should be organising next, when all your wedding appointments are and how much you’ve spent? Or are you a wedding industry professional and you can for the life of you keep track of all the ‘stuff’ that’s going on?
Well my dears, I’m here to help. In collaboration Sugalily and notonthehighstreet.com, I am proud to announce the launch of the Rock n Roll Bride wedding planning notebooks and the 2012 wallplanners! Some of you may remember I did a similar project last year with Sugalily, but as these things always go, this year we’ve gone bigger and better and we’re also pretty thrilled to have notonthehighstreet.com on board too.
The demand for a book for brides to keep track of their wedding planning was there when we launched last year’s planner so I hope you all like what we’ve come up with…
Preview of the wedding planning book for brides
The soft back notebook comes in a handy handbag size (a5), crammed full of gorgeous imagery and design. There is an inspiration and notes page, budget planner and a 12 month diary portion of the book, which is date-free so you all can use it no matter which stage of your planning you are at or when you’re getting married
We were blown away by the response to the 2011 wallplanners, so we hope you like the 2012 design just as much…
