Happy Monday people! There are a lot of very exciting things happening at Rock n Roll Bride HQ this week starting with my very first guest blogger. This week – today, Wednesday and Friday, I will be featuring some gorgeous Rock n Roll inspiration boards from the fabulous Emily from Peach & Pearl, designed especially for us.
Also, while I’m at it, a quick reminder that you have 2 days left to get me your final entries for the free wedding photography contest. We have had some absolutely aaaamazing entries so far and it is proving very difficult to choose the winners! The winners will be notified sometime this week! woohoo
OK, so on with the inspiration..take it away Emily!
I’m thrilled to be here this week! I post an inspiration board every Monday on Peach & Pearl, and when I was invited on to guest post, I thought it would be fun to try and combine Kat’s style (in her words: “pink, tattoos, monochrome, vintage, the Wizard of Oz, and brightly colored stuff”) with my more classic and sweet style. It was a fabulous challenge and I hope you’ll enjoy the results!Ngoc Minh Ngo) in the top left corner. From there, I put the bride in a bright royal blue dress and the groom in a slim-fitting white dinner jacket. The slightly-Spanish vibe comes through in the citrus centerpieces, the fruity drinks, and the bright linens – with those colors popping on your tables, what other decor do you need? Hang cut paper garlands in doorways and line outdoor walkways and ledges with tealights or punched luminarias to create inexpensive atmosphere.

These just landed in my inbox (boy, my poor email account has been on overdrive today!) and despite my repeated promises to blog less and think more..I can’t, I just can’t. Hello my name is Kat and I have a blogging addiction.
Shot by Utah photographer Kayleen T, these fierce images show this Bride at her sexiest – hot red shoes, that brilliant ‘reflection in the puddle thing’ and the amazing turquoise wall - just fabulous!
Thanks for sending these my way Kayleen, keep up the rockin’ work!

When newcomer Jonas Peterson emailed me a link to some his weddings this morning, I knew I recognised his name…I did a search and realised I’d featured one of them before as it had some kick as Australian Groom Style! The other wedding he sent me (he has only ever shot two – quite unbelievable when you see how amazing these photographs are!) was that of Geoff & Cait – a totally rockin’ riverside affair. He has still most definatly got the Groom, Groomsmen (and women!) thing down…
I am loving the soft feel of these images - I’m really into this almost angelic, vintage look right now.

Thanks for sending these my way Jonas – I’m looking forward to featuring more of your weddings in future!

I’ve got one more mini post for you before I sign off for the evening. After perusing all your survey responses, I’ve discovered that the second most popular response to the question ‘what would you like to see more of on RnR Bride?’ was ‘Inspiration Boards’ (after ‘Real Weddings’ I’m glad to see I’m doing something right!)
Now..I’m no inspiration board expert (yet!) and I’m sure we all know that Kathryn over at Snippet & Ink is the actual queen of all things inspiration board, so for now I’m going to hand over to her with a couple of my favouritest of her amazing boards

However from now on, I want to hear from you. Send me your inspiration boards, whether they’re for your own weddings or just for fun, and I’ll post the best ones right here…I may even give a prize if I get a lot of entries..but I haven’t thought of what that could be yet, leave that one with me!
I really try not to have favourites – I feel like a Mother favouring one child over another…but I’m afraid I have to admit, Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel is probably one of my all time favourite photographers and blogging buddies (sssh! Oh God, now I feel totally guilty!)
We met (as in online met) probably about a year ago when the old (RIP) Rock ‘n Roll Bride was still going, and I remember Tara telling me how she was desperate to shoot a really Rock ‘n Roll wedding…well finally I think she has got her wish!
Tara uses a combination of Holga and digital work, creating a unique and beautiful perspective of the world and a totally different take on the usual wedding photography.
The main reason she sent me this wedding was due to the shoes! How on earth did she know I would love them?!
