Creative & Fashionable London Engagement

Marianne Taylor  is one of my favourite UK photographers, not only because she’s an utter sweetheart (we’ve enjoyed many a night out and done an amazing photo shoot together) but because she always sends me her most Rock n Roll weddings and couples!

Rose & Brendan are exactly the kind of funky couple I love – cool, chic and super stylish (I think I recognise Rose’s funky platform black shoes as a pair I lusted over in Topshop). Whenever I feel sad that I’m not in America with all your cool, creative types I will look at this session and be reminded just how damn awesome us Londoners are too!

Big Bloggy Announcement

EEEEEeeeeeeek! I can hardly contain myself – so much so in fact that I am interrupting today’s regularly scheduled programming to tell you all my big news.

Over the last few months Rock n Roll Bride has literally blown the hell up (in a good way!) I’ve met so many amazing people, featured a plethora of gorgeous weddings and photo shoots, written for and been featured in some of the best magazines in the UK (and abroad – watch this space) and being glamorised in some awesome photo shoots. So it’s my absolute pleasure to let you know that my work have allowed me to go part time.

I’ll be honest, working full time job has been pretty damn hard over the last 6 months and I am brimming over with excitement at all the time I’m going to have to make Rock n Roll Bride BIGGER and BETTER for you, my darling readers. I’d also like to give a special shout out of love to all my sponsors, as without them I wouldn’t be in the position to take a cut on my full time wage. Go and give them some love by clicking on their graphics to the right of this post. There are some seriously awesome photographers and Rock n Roll wedding vendors for you to swoon over.

I. Love. You. All!

Finally, what am I going to do with all this extra time? I have ideas forming already and if you have any comments or suggestions then please feel free to drop me an email or comment below and let me know.

Rock n Roll Oz Day ~ Eloping in Vegas, Married in Sydney

Sarah Kate & John got married in Vegas with only their closest two friends as witnesses. They were hitched in a 50’s diner by Elvis and rounded off they day at The Venetian Hotel and with a ride on the gondola.

A few weeks later the pair held a intimate and gorgeous wedding at Camellia Gardens in Caringbah in the south of Sydney for their immediate family and 10 of their closest friends. Sarah Kate wore a black dress from Bridal Collections Erina, leopard print shoes from Leg Avenue Shoes and amazing limited edition cupcake earrings (there were only 100 pairs made) from Omerica Organic.

The bridesmaids wore hot red dresses imported from The States and boys were allowed to wear whatever they liked because John didn’t feel right making them wear anything specific – they just left it up to them to do their own thing!

Aren’t these wonderful? What a gorgeous couple and wedding party! I am smitten…

Rock n Roll Oz Day ~ Holga Love

I’ve been sent 2 amazing Australian weddings over the weekend so I thought I’d make today Rock n Roll Oz day! First up is this stunning set of Holga images sent to me by the lovely Casandra of Caspix Photography.

“I was so pleased when first discussing her wedding photography that Susan, the bride mentioned she was a huge fan of Holga and that she had a Diana camera herself” Casandra explained. “We discussed shooting a Holga session at her wedding and i was excited to see what we could capture. Lomography, which is shooting with a cheap snapshot camera like a Holga or Diana is known for it’s dreamlike romance, with optical distortion, saturated colouholrs, exaggerated vignetting, streaks from light leaks and unpredictable outcomes.”

Thanks to Casandra for kicking off Oz day today!

Punk Rockabilly Bridal Shoot

You are going to explode with excitement over this incredible bridal shoot…I did! Just brace yourselves for some serious awesome.

The shoot was put together by Denver based This Modern Life Photo to inspire brides to think outside the box with their bridal shoots…and boy have they done that!? The team were keen to tell me all about their vision:

“Brides, we can create a custom styled shoot like this one for you and your fiance or husband either before or after the wedding using the same creative team. Not into Rock and Roll styling? Not a problem. Our team will  work with you to create your very own vision, romantic and dreamy?, vintagey and funky?, rustic natural? Whatever your heart desires, this creative team can create!”
