Colourful Bridal Shoot Inspired by Rock n Roll Bride!

I’m not usually one to get persuaded by flattery, but when a photographer Isabel Sacher emailed me to tell me that this bridal photo shoot was 100% inspired by Rock n Roll Bride, well, I had to check it out! It’s pretty mad to think that this little blog I started in secret ten years ago is now inspiring someone living in a completely different country to create an alternative bridal shoot!

“The inspiration for this shoot was honestly, Kat’s hair!” wrote Isabel. “I always adored her hair, because I used to have coloured hair in earlier days as well. I wanted to create something truly bold. For such a long time I had these fragments in my mind of a bride wearing a combination of a tulle skirt and a leather jacket and on the other side those colour shades of blue and pink I wanted to involve.”

Vintage Circus Inspired Costume & Reenactment Wedding

Fay and Michael met in the most bizarre way – they were set up by Michael’s ex-wife! After 10 years together they decided to get married and wanted their wedding to be an eclectic mix, representing all of their passions and loves. They included ballroom dance, costume, circus, art, festival, sugar skulls, Tim Burton and vintage influences. They also wanted it to be an opportunity to show off their creative artistic flair to their family and friends.

“We were inspired by everything we loved, ranging from Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride to vintage circus’ with hot air balloons”, Fay explained. “As reenactors we spend a lot of time during the summer camping in fields, fighting on battlefields and then socialising with friends in the beer tent. We wanted to share the atmosphere and feelings we get at reenactment shows with all our friends and family. We didn’t want to be constrained with a ‘reenactment wedding’ though, so we decided to bring lots of things we loved into the day.”

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony (19)

The most important part of the wedding day for Katherine and Andrew was the ceremony. Both Christians, this is where they put most of their energy and the bit they enjoyed the most. For their reception they wanted something colourful, fun and inspired by the beach.

“The inspiration for the wedding was just us!” said the bride. “We wanted something colourful, fun and family-focused by the seaside. Anything we loved, we included. We had random Disney references and a Pixar short movie playing while we signed the register, we picked colours we loved and had a Lindy Hop first dance. There were board games and face mat coasters, balloons, fake tattoos for people to put on at the reception, succulents in teacups (I grow my own at home and we are both avid tea-drinkers!) The watercolour stationery nodded to our artistic sides, and we had some references to Brighton – the city I’ve lived in all my adult life that we both love. The table names were the countries we are travelling to on our 8-month sort-of honeymoon.”

Fifties Rockabilly & Pin Up Wedding

Monica and Charl’s South African wedding was a fun mix of the 1950s, rockabilly and pin up. The bride has always been obsessed with the era and she idolised Marilyn Monroe, so it was like the perfect theme for them.

“I always wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe on my wedding day”, she explained. “I also love vintage cameras and radios so I thought it would be really cool to incorporate the vintage goods with the 1950s stars to give the feeling of going back in time.”

“When we started planning the wedding the one thing I kept repeating to myself was ‘I want to be different, stay true to who I am’. With this in mind, we tried to stay away from the everyday wedding trends. I feel that I accomplished this by having a ‘2-in-1’ dress. It was long for the ceremony but we changed the skirt for the reception to be a short, fifties style.”

Non-Traditional Halloween & Biker Wedding

Non-Traditional Halloween & Biker Wedding (43)

Pip and Alex have always loved Halloween. Their little girl (who they call ‘mouse’) was even born on Halloween! They were married on 14th November and wanted their wedding to be a nod to their favourite time of year. They also wanted it to be non-traditional, and their theme was a cross between Morticia Addams and Cher! They saved for their wedding for over two years and bought what they could, when they could buy it.

“My wedding dress was black, Alex wore a black suit and converse, and our décor was based on my pink hair colour and skulls!” said the bride. “We are both bikers so we also had nods to our passion throughout the whole wedding with MotoGP rider table numbers, gears on our cake and helmets by our guestbook.”

“We refused to go the traditional route with anything”, said Lilly. “My main concern was that suppliers would try to bully me into having things I didn’t want. We were so lucky to find people who understood us though!”
