I get very over excited when I receive emails from newlyweds who have taken the time to want to share their amazing wedding day’s with me…it make me feel like less of a wedding loser here on my computer on my own anyway!
I received such an email this morning from the very sweet, Veronica Daylight (her stage name, she and her husband Derek – don’t you just love saying that Veronica, are both musicians so they had a very character-filled, stylish and super fun looking wedding!) The sneaky couple got married on the 7th February but told their guests it was an engagement party - but when they showed up it was the actual wedding!
The wedding took place at Veronica’s favourite bar called The Thirtynine Hotel (I would have totally done this too, but my favourite bar, and in fact the one me and Gareth met in defiantly wouldn’t have been suitable for a wedding – sticky floors, rude words all over the walls and snakebite and black to drink!..although we did joke about doing it there when our venue cancelled!)
This wedding had a bird and feather theme as the couple both have swallow tattoos and love all things birdy. I adore all the feathers in the bouquets – super stylish!
For more of this wonderful wedding, check out Veronica’s Flickr, here are just a few of my favourites…

I’m am super tired from my busy weekend handing out flyers in the cold at the National Wedding Show this weekend. I’d like to extend a very special thanks to all the lovely people I met, especially the guys who took the time to ask me questions about the site and gave me one of the many ‘Oh Wows’ I overheard when they took a look at the leaflet! From what I saw, our leaflet did really seem to stand out from the crowd (exactly what I wanted!) and I even got someone who came up to me and asked if I was ’The Rock ‘n Roll Bride Lady’!! It really did make it all worthwhile. I hope my new readers enjoy the site and good luck with the competition! (I have extended the Wedding Date to August 2010 by the way, as I figured a lot of people at the show may be planning for next year.)
Due to my busy weekend I have had no time to blog (how very unlike me, as I usually blog up to about 15 posts a day – I’m not kidding!) so I have a lot of gorgeous weddings to catch up on, starting with this fabulously stylish affair sent to me by the very lovely Molly and Matt from Mathieu Photography.
Jickie and Mark, the Bride and Groom are clearly a very creative pair as they handled all the details from the gorgeous paper flowers to the hand painted sugar skulls (I love them!) themselves. Instead of a regular guest book they displayed a typewriter for all their guests to leave them notes of encouragement and lurrrve….Oh and one more bonus…the couple got engaged in London (woohoo)
Enjoy these amazing photographs!

It makes me very happy when I find such a gorgeously stylish and unique wedding that’s from the UK. In my career as unique/kooky/rock n roll wedding blogger/obsessive I would say 95% of the weddings I feature are American. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I have been able to take so much inspiration from my trans-atlantic friends that I feel have really made Rock ‘n Roll Bride stand out in the UK market.
So here we have it, a beautiful wedding shot by Lillian & Leonard (the girl behind one of my favourite UK blogs Peonies & Polaroids). This wedding took place in bonny Scotland in September so they really played a risky game by having an outdoor do! Luckily it paid of, the weather looks beautiful.
The yellow and pink theme makes me smile.

This fantastic and individually detailed wedding took place in San Francisco and was captured by Cooper Carras. I not only love the cute caricatures of the Bride and Groom, but I’m a little bit crazy about the Bride’s vintagey outfit she changed into fro the outside shots.

Ooh! Another amazing wedding shot by Our Labor of Love. This has got to be my favourite…the Bride not only made her own dress (I know!!) but the teeny tiny wedding was super intimate and super sweet. Check out the photograph of everybody crammed into the minute ceremony room ) Oh and there’s the classic cars again for my Dad…
