Why hello December, you snuck up on us real fast didn’t you?! I’m not quite ready to get proper festive just yet, but here’s my usual conglomerate of candy sweetness to keep you going until I am.

♥ How had I let Cliché magazine pass me by?! Plus my friend Lara Jade (well online friend… I like to fantasise that we are actually buddies) is thrice featured! So much swoon
♥ I may not be ready for Crimbo yet but I’m sure some of you would like help with your shopping. This is the definitive playgirl shopping list
DIY engagement shoot. I love.
Valentino. Yes please.
♥ A simple yet and wonderful seaside wedding
♥ Girlie, ruffled, gorgeous
The Groom style to beat all groom style. Three words - Velvet. Teal. Jacket.
Take your blog to a whole new level
♥ I want to eat this
♥ Freakin’ kick ass wedding polaroids (via a desert fete)
♥ What cool and awesome reception details!
♥ Beautiful 1920′s inspired wedding shoot
♥ 17 crazily gorgeous and completely unique business card ideas (via Princess Lasertron)
♥ OMG this dress! I can’t wait to see more of this wedding…
♥ Cinematic & awe-inspiring shoot
♥ Hee hee! Tea cup with little legs!
♥ UK photographers, Tino & Pip are desperate for an awesome Rock n Roll couple’s wedding to shoot. Therefore they are offering half price coverage to a deserving and rockin’ couple!
♥ This is not a new article, but a friend of mine sent this to me to cheer me up. Feeling jealous of other people’s success and inadequate with what I’m doing with Rock n Roll Bride is part of the job of trying to make a success of your own business I guess! Don’t be different, be unique! (Thanks Andri – mwah)
♥ If you are still on the hunt for quirky, unique & adorable bridesmaid dresses then look no further than Quail Bridal. I am currently having a love affair with the teal ‘toasting’ dress
♥ I love these authentic vintage touches
♥ I just had to share this image shot by The Nichols from Sarah & Jaime’s wedding. After pink, this shade of green is my favourite colour ever. For the full report head over to Green Wedding Shoes later today.

♥ Shhh! An incognito New York Photographer is running a photo shoot contest. Incognito because they are keeping their identity a secret so not so influence the entries they receive. They say,
In an effort to only attract the most creative, I have decided to remain anonymous. I do not want contestants going to my website for inspiration on what they think I may be looking for. I want them to be creative and original. I realize that this is unorthodox, but I truly believe this will enable me to find the type of contestants I seek.

I would love it if a Rock n Roll couple won this. Come on you can do it!

The Mold Breakers Contest

♥ Living TV are still on the look out for a Rock n Roll couple to take part in the next series of Four Weddings. If you’re in the UK and getting hitched between now and March then get in touch! For anyone who hasn’t seen the show before, here’s the info from the production team:

We are casting for the second series of “Four weddings” which see’s 4 brides attending each others’ weddings as guests and they will judge & score the day as a whole based on four categories, The Dress, The Food, The Venue and The Overall Experience. The scores are not disclosed amongst the other brides until after all the weddings when it will be revealed whose wedding has been judged the best! The bride with the highest score at the end of the show will win a Luxury dream honeymoon.
We would really love a real variety of weddings celebrating different cultures and personal interests.We would love to include a gothic wedding or burlesque wedding, however we’re open to all sorts of weddings.This wedding would need to be taking place in December, January or February.

Twice the Fun

Vanessa & Matthew had a personal and private retro rockabilly ceremony on the 4th September. Vanessa was 4 months pregnant on their ceremony day but her Dolly Couture dress compliments her mini bump perfectly. Unusually however the couple held off having their reception until October and so I have been waiting since September to share the full set!

Two Sides to the Story

Allison & Gabe’s wedding day started like every other – excitable, elegant, stylish and full of lurrrrve – then night fell and the chaos and fun of rock star proportions ensued! I love how the couple’s attire matches their mood – beginning of the day – excited, demure and classy (I adore Allison’s simple dress which she got on sale in Bloomingdale’s),  end of the night - ruffled and rocking the hell out (and again I adore Allison’s dress – which she actually made herself – she bought a basic tutu from Etsy but the rest was all her own work!) In fact it wasn’t just the bride who changed - the whole wedding party got changed (the women from pastels into black ruffles – again make by the bride from tutu’s found on Etsy – and the men into dinner suits) for the massive party at the end of the night!

The Bright Blue House

 The colour and fun of this stunning wedding really made me smile – oh and isn’t Aubrey, the bride, totally hot too?! I adore her cuuute short dress and birdcage veil combo. The shots of the wedding party in front of the blue house are also too fabulous for words – they make me want a bright blue house…actually strike that – it is of course a bright pink house that I want!

Old Hollywood, Mexican Punk Rock!

Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920′s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it.  It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history.  It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”

Bicycles & Flowers

Liz & Pete’s blissful backyard wedding was fit to bursting with happiness and joy. Can’t you tell that from just these images alone? Beautiful details and quirky ideas made this relaxed day very special indeed. Be sure to also watch their super 8 video (after the jump) which will really bring it all to life!
