Happy Valentine’s day! And what better way to start off today’s celebrations than with a beautiful and kick ass Valentine’s themed shoot? I’ve got 3 posts packed with love-filled goodness for you today, so be sure to pop back later for the rest!
“The original idea behind this shoot was to showcase that it really is ‘the thought that counts’ when it come to great Valentine’s Day gifts,” explained stylist Erica of Rook & Rose Floral Design Boutique.”A home-cooked breakfast (like heart shaped waffles), personalized details (like DIY tea bag messages) and a saucy/cute apron is really all a guy could ever want….”
“The concept, styling and (of course) the flowers were provided by myself, Erica from Rook & Rose
, and the morning was beautifully captured by Kim of Kim Kalyn Photography
. Alex & Cara, we’re nice enough to volunteer for the project and along with a handful of other local Victoria, BC vendors we’re hoping to inspire other couple to GET CREATIVE this Valentine’s Day!”
I hope all my Rock n Roll readers enjoy their day of romance, whatever you’re doing. Us? We’ll be staying in with a take away and a movie, there’s no need for grand gestures in our house!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past few months (or you’re not as obsessed with weddings as I!) you won’t have failed to hear the rumours that Anthropologie are launching their own wedding line on Valentines Day (tomorrow!) called BHLDN. Words can’t express how excited I am to see Rock n Roll Bride’s (and their bridesmaids) rocking out these dresses. They are seriously stunning.
The wedding dresses will range from US size 0-14 and will be priced between $1000 and $4000. All dresses will be offered free shipping (!) and free 30 day returns.
Get in there quick girlies – I imagine this whole collection will sell out in a matter of hours! What do you think of these new designs?
Here are a few of my favourites.

Thank you thank you thank you for your amazing website!
We’re getting married in August on a farm in Derbyshire and I have got so many wonderful ideas from your site! We are currently DIY-ing bunting and lanterns with many other things on the way! Our budget isn’t grand by any stretch of the imagination but the site has made it possible to know our wedding can still be very us and very unique without the massive price tag!
The theme is village fete – country- vintage ish! Hay bales, bunting, lanterns, wild flowers mis match china, vintage marquees etc! My other half has a vintage 3 piece tweed, I have a 1950’s lace fishtail gown that I love and can’t wait to wear! The bridesmaids are Vivien of Holloway but I’m so stuck with flower girls… Have you ever come across vintage style flower girl dresses? Everything seems so puffy and bridesmaidy (technical terms) and its not really right for the rest of it! Any ideas would be most appreciated!
Keep up the good work, you’re an inspiration!

What a great question from Nichola this week. However, let’s be honest (and anybody who knows me can vouch for this!) babies. scare. me. Therefore I didn’t exactly think I was the right person to answer this dilemma…but I knew someone who was – the fabulously chic and stylish, and recent Mummy to the gorrrrgeous Reuben, Tiffany Grant-Riley of Grant-Riley Weddings. Oh and can I just take this opportunity to Tiffany for letting me hold her little Reuben at The Designer Wedding Show yesterday. When I said “yeah sure…just so you know this is the first time I’ve held a child by the way” she did look a little terrified. Sorry about that!
Your village fete themed wedding sounds absolutely gorgeous-and you’re right, the majority of flower girl dresses are rather frilly and white to boot. Nothing wrong with that of course, but as you’re a bride looking for something a little more fun and less traditional it can be disheartening when you can’t find what you’re looking for.
