Cathedral of Junk

I’ve got a second kick ass bridal shoot for you today. This self-titled ‘Cathedral of Junk’ shoot had me as soon as I saw this gal’s green and purple tresses and of course her ink. The junkyard location is just perfecto and creates such a unique mood.

Skate Park Bridal

On a cold November Sunday morning a recent bride and her photographer headed down to a skate park for a bridal shoot complete with skateboarders, boys on bikes and a big dog (eek!) She wore her wedding dress which was by Donatella and two different pairs of shoes (no,  not at the same time) which were both from Next. I am particularly loving the bright blue pair which were from their Runway Collection.

Retro & Kitsch

Oh baby, you are going to love these! Heidi & Rick’s retro engagegement session just oozes 50’s and 60’s kitsch cool. Heidi wore a dress that she actually bought from GAP about 9 years ago and added the apron that she made herself. The show may also have been a little bit stolen by Ginger the cocker spaniel however!

For the Love of Bettie Paige

Toni & Richard had a gothic/burlesque inspired wedding at Prested Hall in Colchester in March of this year. “Our inspiration mainly comes from my admiration of burlesque and my unnerving love of Bettie Paige (who I have recently had tattooed on me)” Toni told me. “Not being much of a girly girl and never one who ‘dreamt of their big day’, I didn’t actually know where to start after the proposal. I like wearing jeans, having a Mohawk and being covered in tattoos and wearing too much make up!”

Full Time Blogging ~ Day One

Credit: via LoveShot

For those of you that follow me on twitter or facebook, you’ll already know that I jumped with joy yesterday as I finished my last full-time shift at my day job. Thanks to all of YOU and my crazy blogging/internet/wedding obsession I’ve been able to cut down on my TV producing hours in order to focus more time on you lot! My work have actually been really great about the whole thing and I’m currently still going to be working there at the weekends, but Monday – Friday I’m all yours!

So, what does this mean for the future of Rock n Roll Bride? Well let’s be brutally honest here, I’m not exactly sure. I have a few ideas bubbling under the surface and I’m ecstatic that I’m going to be able to really get my teeth into some new projects. Day to day will certainly be more of the same though – lots of real wedding goodness and inspiration a go-go. That’s what it’s all about right? Thursday Treats can only get bigger and better and I’m hoping to develop some new daily post ideas. I’ll also be working closely with some industry peeps I’ve got to know over the past year to do some exciting new projects as well as more fabulous photo shoots whilst also hopefully developing my writing ambition by working closely with some more magazines but here in the UK and abroad.
