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.”

Over The Rainbow: Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

As issue 14 is now on sale, I thought today I would share some of the bonus photos from our issue 13 rainbow bride fashion editorial. I love putting these shoots together with my amazing photo shoot team (do go and check their websites out in the credits at the bottom of this post, they really are the BEST at what they do!) and although I’ll always prefer to share real wedding inspo on the blog over styled shoots, when you create something you’re proud of its fun to share that too!

The inspiration for this shoot was simple: RAINBOWS! However, as ever, we wanted to put a twist on the trend and do something unexpected. So, rather than throwing all the colours in every shot, we decided to create a colour blocked effect with each outfit.

Below is each outfit we put together. Obviously we didn’t stick to the exact colours of the rainbow, instead going for softer tones such as mint, peach and nude to add a yet another twist to the tale. For the most part we also tried to match each contrasting coloured wig from Annabelle’s Wigs with something else in the shot as well (the nails, the colours in the background) for some added colourful contrast.

Grey

A simple dress and pink bob – who knew it could look so incredible?

I’m obsessed with this Katya Katya Shehurina dress. Again, the pink bob and matching fabric in the background really sets it off.

Mint

I would have literally never thought to put a neon pink wig with a soft mint outfit, but it totally works! Our model definitely has some Milla Jovovich/ Fifth Element vibes going on in these shots don’t you think?

Peach

This peach Belle and Bunty dress is a dream. Lisa, our photographer, wanted to channel some soft focus 80s glamour with the close up photos of this look. It’s definitely not going to be for everyone but I kinda love it!

Colourful Pub Wedding

Laura and Jack’s pub wedding was low key, laid back and colourful. They didn’t want to be restricted by one particular colour or style, we they included a bit of everything they like.

“For inspiration I looked online and in magazines but mostly everything looked quite boring, until I found Rock n Roll Bride!” said Laura. “So I did take lots of inspiration from the website and magazine but mostly we just winged it and picked things we liked.”

The day started with a ceremony at Merton Registry Office. “The ceremony was lovely but seemed to be over so quickly! I was so nervous and excited while I waited, my stomach was full of butterflies. In my interview, the registrar commented on how handsome Jack looked and also how relaxed he seemed, this calmed me down and I couldn’t wait to see him! I walked down the aisle to Be My Baby and as soon as the little drum bit kicked in at the beginning and I saw Jack I totally relaxed. We giggled and kissed throughout the ceremony, a few late arrivals stumbled in half way through and we just laughed even more. Nothing mattered really, and as clichĂ© as it is, we only had eyes for each other. We wrote personal vows to each other, but read them privately in the morning; those words were just for each other.”

Rainbows & Stars Themed Wedding in France

Margot and Paul’s summer wedding had a very obvious theme: Rainbows! They also incorporated lots of stars such as on the bride’s dress, their rings and in the stationery. They were married at a lovely country house in the heart of the Thousand Ponds region in Haute Saone, France.

“Our wedding was themed around rainbows and pixels!” said Margot. “It was a mix of Paul, who works in video games and myself, who loves bright colours. We were married in an area of France that we discovered and fell in love with together. We let ourselves be inspired by anything we liked during the wedding preparations. Pinterest was a huge source of ideas, but we also used our range of skills (and those of our friends). If we saw something we liked during a walk or a visit somewhere we would make a note of it and try to use it.”

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.”

Turn Your Bridesmaids into Rainbow Bright Unicorns with Curious Coco!

Turn Your Bridesmaids into Rainbow Bright Unicorns with Curious Coco (33)

When it comes to looking for bridesmaid dresses, it can be tricky to find anything really, truly unique. Sure, if you want to do the mismatched thing, or the multiway dress thing, or the 1950s reproduction thing it’s getting much easier, but if you want your maids rocking something really wacky and different it can be pretty difficult. While the high street is also a great place to look, it can also be hard to make sure all your girls match and look like bridesmaids, rather than just wedding guests.

Enter Curious Coco: A new range for alternative bridesmaids from the genius team behind The Couture Company! When I saw this shoot to launch the collection with all that colour and sparkle and rainbow action, I knew I had to share them with you.

“This shoot was created with one mission in mind: Go as bright as you like!” explained Jo, the brains behind The Couture Company and Curious Coco. “In a world of wedding beige we want to splash colour wherever we go. Our aim is to be super bright and offer a real alternative to traditional bridesmaids options.”
