My Turn To Get Blogged

It’s great to feature so many wonderfully talented people and their work on my site but it was nice to get a little blog love back today.

Go check out Mirror Online, a Swedish online magazine and Always Andri Wedding Design, some UK wedding planners, that both wrote a little something about Rock n Roll Bride today. 

Mirror Online – Translation

What is a Rock ‘n Roll Wedding?

If you would like to have a more personal wedding and not one that the rest of the wedding industry recommends, which most often is a really expensive and an already copied concept that you can read about in all different wedding magazines, then be sure to head over to Rock n Roll Bride.

To have a rock ‘n roll wedding you do not need to buy the whole parcel, you don’t need to be totally covered in tattoos from top of your head to tip of your toe or play heavy metal music at the altar, you don’t need to be in the darkest forest, but it is ok to have it like that. To have one of these kinds of weddings is to dare a bit and to come up with the idea of what reflects who you together with your partner are. To dare to show your love in your way the rock n roll way.
A rock ‘n roll wedding is a wedding where the bride couple chose to make the big day of there life to a day that which strengthen there love in there fantastic way.

Gotta love the crude Swedish to English translation, isn’t it super cute?

Both articles have also featured some of my favourite weddings and photographers from the last few months, so why not head over to refresh your memory with some of these little gems?

Urban Outfit

Do you ♥ this couple as much as I do? I’m sure that’s pretty much impossible. The checked shirt-dress, the skateboarding, the cyan/teal old bicycle, the sunglasses, the handstands, the vintage cameras. As photographer Mary Wyar said, they do in fact look like they just stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalogue and I really really love that shop. Oh yes, I pretty much adore Mary & Scott…

Huge thanks to photographer Mary for sharing these, I look forward to seeing more stuff like this as she steps forward and takes her photography in this new pretty damn awesome direction.

Layered Grey Tulle

Right my lovelies, prepare to be wowed. I discovered Amanda & Jeffery’s wedding when browsing Etsy for a tutu no less. I found seller Monique Martinez of Ouma Clothing who made Amanda’s GORGEOUS layered grey/blue, tulle dress and immediately knew I had to try and feature this wedding! 

The Bridesmaids were treated to similar dresses (but each with their own individual twist) from Ultra Suite and Jeffery and his boys wore suits from Req Square in Queens Plaza Brisbane. I also can’t leave out talking about thise cute litle cars! They all belong to Amanda’s Dad and are vintage Austin A3o’s ( a classic British car.)

The Austrailian couple had their ceremony at the ultra modern Brisbane Powerhouse New Farm  and choose local buskers (who were only 16!) to perform the music. Their reception took place at River Room Southbank. Jeffery’s family come from Thailand, so in order to incorporate this into their big day, the couple infused their wedding with a beautiful Asian colour scheme. The wedding day was rounded off by a 80’s disco that went on late into the night.

Thanks so much to Amanda & Jeffery for taking the time to share their gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous day with us!

Caribbean

Reagan Destination,& Joe had a gorgeous destination wedding at Grand Cayman in the Caribbean. The location not only made for some awesome wedding shots, but for an amazing day after shoot as well.

Holga Love

I am really feeling the Holga love right now and when I saw these I knew I had to feature them as soon as possible. Shooting a wedding with a toy camera must be a precarious and slightly unnerving job (what if the film doesn’t load? what if the photos turn out badly? what if I loose the film? eeek!) but photographer Daniel Krieger appears to have got his skillZ down and pulled this one off seemingly without a hitch. These images are just making me even more excited about getting my very own piece of plastic joy soon..ahh the light, the texture, the soft focus – swoon!

Daniela & Chris got married at the ridiculously stunning Mohonk Mountain House. Have you ever seen a location so picturesque? Daniela’s beautiful dress is the Fontaine wedding gown from J Crew and she is actually selling it right now on Craigslist. It’s a size 4 and you may well be able to snap it up for yourself (if you’re quick!) you lucky lucky things.

Daniela has also shared a few little tips of her own:
Enjoy every minute and roll with it. The quirks of your wedding are what will make the memories that much better. On our day, it was so cold that the ipod playing the bridal march (dum, dum, da dum) froze (literally!) and the audience had to hum the music. Couldn’t have asked for anything better!!

Thanks so much to the brilliant Daniel Krieger for the photography, and the couple Daniela & Chris for allowing me to share their day.
