Issue 9 on Pre-Sale Today!

rocknrollbride magazine issue 9 cover

This year is just moving faster and faster and I can’t quite believe it’s nearly July already (and that my sister gets married next weekend!) The end of the month can only mean one thing though… the new issue of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine is about to go on sale (cue explosions, fireworks and popping bottles of champagne).

Now, I hate to have favourites but would you get a load of that sexy-as-hell cover?! Nina and Jack are utter BABES and I can not wait for you to see their DIY vegan wedding that’s featured inside. So beautiful OMG. Thanks to the forever amazing Dale Weeks who photographed it. I think this is my favourite cover so far.

OK so what can you expect to find inside this fabulous new issue?

When Your Heart Explodes With Love: Issue 9 Sneak Peek & Advertising Deadline

rocknrollbride magazine issue 9 sneak peeks (9)

Head designer of Rock n Roll Bride magazine, Shauna of We are Branch, just sent me through the first round of layouts for the new issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine and I am dying. Glitter fonts and drop caps? Yes, yes, so much yes!

I thought I’d take this opportunity to not only share a few sneaks with you (I just can’t keep them to myself) but to also let any of you with wedding businesses know that the deadline for advertisement bookings for this issue is THIS FRIDAY (10th).

If you are passionately running your alternative wedding business but struggling to get the clients you really want, then Rock n Roll Bride magazine can help!

It’s all very well and good me telling you how ace the magazine is, but I decided to ask the members of the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group what they really thought of it. Their comments have made my heart explode with love and pride.

“I was struggling with wedding planning, every magazine had the same old stuff in and it just wasn’t ‘us’. We needed something where it was OK to be different and quirky at your wedding at that is exactly what the Rock n Roll Bride magazine is! My fella even reads it, and he loves how it’s much more relatable to us and what we want at our wedding. We love the ideas and all of the different styles!” – Claire

“Besides having gorgeous content with drool-worthy graphics and page layouts, Rock n Roll Bride magazine has helped my self esteem. I see so many gorgeous brides of different shapes and sizes and I now see that losing tonnes of weight for my wedding should not be what I am focusing on! I adore the body positivity, and its helped me to grow and become more body positive myself. Besides this, it has helped me to become so much more relaxed about wedding planning and to enjoy it rather than to stress! I do think its one of the realest, most down to Earth and beautiful wedding magazines around!” – Charlotte

“An important part of planning our wedding was to use independent artists and retailers to provide us with those bits that make your wedding a little bit different. Rock n Roll Bride has not only inspiration for how to make things yourself, but includes many independent business owners who are living out their dream and put their heart and soul into everything they create. Without the magazine (and Facebook group) I wouldn’t have found most of the people involved in making our wedding super unique!” – Chrissie

“Rock n Roll Bride has been essential in planning our wedding. Me and my partner are the complete opposite of ‘contemporary’ and when I heard of this magazine our prayers had been answered! We’ve managed to have the wedding we want from inspiration from REAL weddings that are in the magazine and on the blog. I’ve got every copy and when I’m stuck on an idea it’s my first port of call. Honestly, Kat, we as your readers are forever in your debt for giving us the stepping stones in empowering ourselves to have the wedding WE WANT.” – Yasmin

“Rock n Roll Bride is the only magazine that encourages couples to be authentic and really think about what is truly important to them and their marriage. Its a message of hope, and a fantastic community of people supporting one another. The diversity and the realness of each article and each feature really gives me and many others so much hope. Hands down the very best thing to read when planning your big day.” – Amie

“Rock n Roll Bride is a magazine that really captures the diversity of brides (and grooms) today. There are so many ideas that you just wouldn’t find in any other magazine. Rock n Roll Bride showed us that you don’t have to settle for what is popular, traditional or ‘normal’ and if want something uniquely you, you can always do it yourself.” – David

“I love that the weddings are achievable! You read about all these amazing individual weddings and feel really inspired. So many different ideas from all different types of people. I found my caterers from a feature in Rock n Roll Bride too!” – Charlene

I’m Closer Magazine’s Newest Columnist!

headshots 2015 shell de mar (5)

Happy Sunday gorgeous! I just wanted to pop by today and share some exciting news. I’ve been asked by Closer Magazine to be a regular columnist!

Once a month I’ll be writing something for them (and you!) which will help you with your (alternative) wedding planning. My first article is live on their website right now and its about one of my favourite (or should that be LEAST favourite?!) topics – the pressure on brides to lose weight for their weddings. Oh I do love the chance to rant about this one.

Are you running an alternative wedding business?
Are you passionate about what you do but are struggling to find the right customers?
Does it feel like you’ve tried everything to get the word out but you keep coming up against brick walls?

If so, Rock n Roll Bride is here to help!

I think a lot of artists make the same mistake – they figure if they build it they will come. Now I love Field of Dreams as much as the next child of the 90s, but when it comes to running a business, that theory rarely pans out.

People aren’t just going to magically wake up one day and find you. Without marketing, your wedding business is nothing more than an expensive, all-consuming hobby. Without targeting your ideal clients your business simply will not survive.

But I get it. You’re just starting out and money is tight. Which is why I am committed to making the advertising packages in Rock n Roll Bride magazine stupendously affordable for people just like you. Our ads still start from just £50!

If you’re stuck with the design, we can help you with that as well. Not only do we have easy to use templates available, but if need be someone from our team can work with you to create your advert from the ground up.

Here’s what some of your peers have to say about advertising in Rock n Roll Bride magazine:

“Advertising with Rock n Roll Bride has been fantastic! Not only have I got my stationery in front of a whole new market, these couples have been totally the right clients for my business… really appreciating something a bit different and more colourful than your standard wedding fare! Plus compared to a lot of other magazine advertising it is really great value. I love the glossy ‘coffee table book’ format too, its so beautiful that I think that brides are less likely to throw it away like a normal magazine and will have it sitting in front of them for several months.” Nikki Ward, Knots and Kisses

“I’ve advertised in the magazine a few times now, and am always pleased at the response I get. I always know that I will attract like-minded couples, who appreciate creative and fun wedding photography. I love the rest of the magazine too… I wouldn’t just advertise in any wedding publication! In fact, Rock n Roll Bride is the ONLY magazine I advertise in now. I feel that it is the only one on the news stands that totally reflects my business.

It’s not just couples getting married that have contacted me via my adverts, the ad has also caught the attention of some cool wedding wedding suppliers, and they’ve actually gone on to refer me to THEIR couples… WIN WIN as far as I’m concerned.

Dealing with Kat isn’t your typical magazine sales-rep pitch either. Instead, its a breeze. No hard-sale… and no desperate phone calls near deadline day. And in my opinion, a very good price for an advert giving my business great exposure in the best wedding magazine out there. Thanks Kat, I’ve been waiting for a cool, stylish wedding magazine to come out for years… and Rock n Roll Bride was definitely worth the wait!” – Ed Godden, Ed Godden Photography

“We have been with Rock n Roll Bride magazine from the beginning. We love that it connects us with the right kind of awesome and alternative clients – couples who aren’t traditional and want to put their own stamp on their weddings. The layout of the magazine is gorgeous and such an inspiring read. I absolutely LOVE the eclectic and diverse mix of real weddings featured too. The advertising rates are really reasonable and a must for any small business wanting to reach a more alternative market” – Jo Bromley, The Couture Company

“We’re very proud to be long-term advertisers in Rock n Roll Bride magazine. Working with Kat is a joy, and the magazine itself offers a distinctive, independent voice that’s sorely needed in the wedding industry. The mag is gorgeously produced, has the best-quality printing of anything we’ve been involved with, and has an excellent ratio of ads to content.

We include a discount code on our ad so we can see when couples are coming from the magazine and there’s been a lot of variety! Through Rock n Roll Bride we’ve had couples sign up who are honeymooning in Bali, Argentina, Morocco and Tuscany — plus two gift lists for Disney World, huzzah!” – Andrew Green, Buy Our Honeymoon

This is your opportunity to place your product or service in front of the eyeballs of thousands of alternative wedding loving brides and grooms. Brides and grooms that are desperately and very actively searching for wedding suppliers just like you. Reading my magazine are the customers that you’ve always dreamed about having. So what are you waiting for?!
