Do It Yourself!

OK I am officially blown away by this couple and this wedding. It bright and it’s fun and it looks like a wedding I would have loved to be at!

Nicola & Ben got hitched at Tithe Barn, Hampshire and did as much DIY as was feasible.  This included all the invites, the favours, the decorations (yes, Martha Pom Poms… all 450 of them!), the table plan, the order of the day booklets…

Nicola says
It was well worth the extra effort when we saw all our hard work come together on the day
and I have to agree – the result is quite frankly spectacular, gorgeous and inspiring,. Plus I am sooo jealous of Nicola’s amazing Candy Anthony dress & petticoat (and her veil which she made herself for the grand total of £1.50!)

The couple also had a cine film wedding video that I can’t wait to see (and share with you of course) when they get it back.

Photo Noir

Non-wedding, wedding inspiration can be just as inspiring as the bog standard stuff. For example, the ideas behind this fabulous ‘film noir’ style photo shoot by Emily Porter, could easily be transferred to an absolutely amazing engagement shoot, or even a wedding theme.
Keep the non-wedding submissions coming (no maternity shoots though please, I still can’t being myself to start posting baby-related stuff sorry hehe!)

Love Is All You Need

This beautiful, intimate wedding really does show that ‘All You Need is Love’ (dada dada daaaaa!) It’s simple, it’s personal, it’s gorgeous.

From the photographer, Maureen Ford
These Brooklyn  Brides have been together for over 7 years and came to Boston, MA to get married because it is not yet legal in their home state. I photographed them the day before their wedding while they  applied for their marriage license at Boston City Hall and also their actual wedding day. They wanted a small, intimate ceremony with only immediate family, but one of the bride’s mother’s wanted to surprise them with a real wedding party and invited over 30 friends from across the country to come and celebrate. The girls were super surprised when all their “guests” were revealed behind a curtain, champagne was popped and heartfelt speeches were given.  They were then married in a beautiful candlelit  room over looking the city and each one had walked down the aisle with their dad while John Lennon’s Imagine softly played in the background.  A cocktail/dinner party followed with more champagne, speeches and celebrating!

Cool, Calm, Collected

Good morning! Lets start the days proceedings with the gorgeous new photo shoot by the wonderful Jessica Purvis. I adore brightly coloured photographs but sometimes it’s nice to take it down a peg or two…to feel soothed and chilled out by the simple, muted colours of a shoot like this.  Gorgeous…now repeat after me ‘aaaaaah’

I am working with a TV network to potentially make a programme about newly married rock n roll couples and their wedding experience! 

What I would need would be a link to see your wedding video (it would be used in the show) and your videographer’s contact info so I can contact them and make sure they are OK with being featured too. Also send me some wedding photographs because they always brighten my day!
You and your partner must be happy to be interviewed on camera for the show.

Drop me an email to kat@rocknrollbride.com if you think this could be you! Don’t be scared..I have to find someone and it could be you!
