Made To Measure

Evita & Micheal had a very uniquely styled wedding and ‘day after shoot’ (which actually took place 4 months after the wedding but who’s counting?) The whole glorious wedding is featured in the Fall issue of Weddings Unveiled Magazine (and is on their blog, Completely Unveiled) but I was over the moon when Evita asked if I would like to share their American Gothic style photo shoot too.

A London Affair

Alex & David’s wedding was a super suave, quirky and stylish London affair. Her stunning dress was actually a modified David Fielden number and suited her perfectly – not too bridal but not too boring! The wedding took place at The Larder in Clerkenwell where the couple added their own personal stamp with DIY touches, homemade cupcakes and a Mr Wippy ice cream van handing out ice creams after the ceremony.

A Geeky, Offbeat, Tea Party, Country Wedding!

Boy oh boy…I have to say there is a hell lot of wedding awesomeness flying in and around my inbox this week. I have been inundated with so many emails of gorgeousness that it really has been hard to keep up. Fret not though as I do plan on blogging all of the beauty at some point!

Right now, well what can I say that could possibly live up to these? The very lovely Rosalie of the Tea and Whimsy blog booked my buddy David McNeil for her wedding to Jamie last month. She has gone over all the details, budget saving tricks (they only spent about £4000/$6000 on the whole thing!) and DIY gems on her site, but I’m just here to share the swoonfest that is these photographs…oh and to draw your attention to her freakin’ awesome bouquet! Yes those are real (dyed) roses!

Top 20 Rock n Roll Weddings… Part 2!

So it turns out you all loved the top 20 huh? Well I did too and to be honest it was really blooming difficult to narrow it down to just 20…fancy seeing 20 more then? I’ve only featured weddings that are older than about 4 months (past 50 pages in – there are well over 100 pages of old posts on this site…oh yes!) because otherwise I would have been here forever. Some of these you may have seen before and some I’m sure you certainly won’t have. That is the beauty of the top 20! Again, let me know what you think…

Thursday Treats – 24th Sept 2009

As you may have noticed I’ve tweeked the layout of the posts slightly this week. Now, you’ll just get one preview image for each article and if you want to see the rest you just need to click ‘read the the rest of this entry’. The idea behind it is to not only make the front page look a lot cleaner, but it means the pages will load a lot faster. My hubby/web designer was trying to make me cut down  on how many images I posted to compensate for the slow page load time – now that wasn’t gonna happen was it!? What do you think of the new style?

Apart from that don’t forget that the awesome TokyoMade contest is still open. You have until tomorrow to tell me which right if your favourite and why. Come on, you know you want it!

That’s all I really have to report around Rock n Roll Bride HQ right now..let’s see what the rest of blog land has been up to this week shall we?
