So I don’t usually post sneak peeks on the blog (I prefer to tease you on Twitter and Facebook!) but I am so in love with these that I just had to make sure that every single of of your saw them. I headed down to Whitstable beach yesterday with photographer Eliza Claire, Vintage planner and stylist Tiffany Grant-Riley and hair & make up artist Elbie Van Eeden. It really didn’t feel like work – it was just a girl’s day out in fact! And although I’m proper shattered (and quite sunburnt ooops!) the results are looking like they are aaall going to be worth it.
Wanna see a sneak peek then do ya?! Hold tight my lovelies, the full set and my report will be on it’s way to you as soon as physically possible! I’ll even tell you about the OAP blasting Barry White out of his scooter. I kid you not.

First of all, well done to everyone for all your patience. I have been very cruel and teased you for weeks about this new project (especially on Twitter hehe!) but I’m pretty sure you’re going to forgive me when you see what I’ve been up to…You must also forgive me for the super wordy nature of this post, but there has been so much work behind the scenes to make this shoot happen that I can’t possibly do it justice without an epic explanation.
A little while ago, the amazing Emma Case and I were talking about how crazy our lives are; about how everything seems to have exploded over the last few months and about how many awesome people we’ve met. “Let’s do a shoot together” one of us said “hell yeah!” said the other. After we’d decided to actually go through with it and (as Emma later confessed to me) after a major bit of “OMG what the hell am I doing”/freakin’ out about it, a date was set. We didn’t really know what the plan was. “Let’s just go and have a play” we said.
Then I got-to-thinking. I know so many amazing wedding vendors, who I recommend to my readers all the time, wouldn’t it be great to try and get some of them involved too? Then, we would not only have a proper amazing set up to work with but it’d be a fantastic opportunity to share some love and really show you what this kick ass group of wedding warriors can do!
If you don’t do anything else, make sure you pop by tomorrow to see the full set of my latest photo sesh in all it’s epic glory. I will also be sharing the full list of everyone who donated their time and services to the shoot.
It’s going to be so flippin’ awesome. I might die with excitement.

Nope this isn’t one of my photo shoots – but model Jennifer and I sure to have one (very pink) thing in common! The shoot took place in Richmond, VA at Belle Isle which is a park that has a large suspension bridge that takes you to another small island that has several abandoned buildings including an old power plant on it – perfect shooting ground!
“The power plant is really cool, lots of graffiti and crumbling architecture” photographer Jan told me. “Her dress was bought at a thrift store for $3, we added the black sash to give it more character. She was an awesome model, with great pink hair and lots of style I hope to photograph her wedding eventually. I love your blog by the way. It’s completely along the lines of what I’m interested in and I love to see other photographers and brides that are unique and have style not typical boring brides.”
Stand by for part three of the pink invasion…and this shot is amazing! Jade of Jade Rose Designs was eager to share with me some of her new, gorgeous, perfect-for-Rock-n-Roll-Brides designs and I was over the moon to receive them, especially when I say her gorgeous model’s (friend Erin) pinky/red hair! Based in Portland, Jade teamed with Bryan Rupp Photography to create a photo shoot to inspire Rock n Roll Brides everywhere.
