I have loved hanging out with Emily of Peach & Pearl this week..a huge thank you for all her hard work putting together some fantastico inspiration boards just for us. I hope you have all loved them too!
So for the last time (this week) over to Emily…
For my last board, I imagined an intimate, sit-down dinner with your closest family and friends that could be held just as easily in a loved one’s backyard or the patio of your favourite restaurant. While not as rock and roll as some celebrations I could have put together, I think this board really reflects what I feel is the heart of Rock ‘n Roll Bride – not bowing to wedding convention, but truly having the wedding that best reflects you as a pair and your relationship. Keep things simple and handmade with potted herb favours, a hosta and lady slipper bouquet, breadstick and olive oil centrepieces, pigs in a blanket at the cocktail hour, and a short, sassy dress for the bride.

Thank you again, so much, for having me this week, and to Kat for inviting me on to her lovely blog! If you’d like to see more boards and other style + design + wedding musings, I’m over at Peach & Pearl. I also design custom inspiration boards through my Etsy shop, and would be delighted to work with you to put one together. If you’re interested, you can see the details here and purchase here.
If you haven’t seen this amazing vintage themed wedding (I’m rubbish, I can’t decide if we’re looking at the 20’s, 30’s or 40’s…answers on a postcard please) over at the fabulous Snippet & Ink then what are you waiting for? (promise to come back though pleease!!)

So, you know about Bridal Soup now yeah? Well the one of the guys behind it, Steve Gerrard is actually a fabulous photographer based in Birmingham, UK. Being as I was to be a regular contributor to his new venture I figured I should check out his work as well, and boy am I glad I did..look at this amazin’ NY wedding.
When I emailed Steve to let him know I was going to feature one of his weddings he actually replied saying “Let me guess – the New York wedding!” am I that predicable!!? Well for a well like this I am happy to be predictable!
I love flippin’ loads about this wedding – the dress, the glasses, the Groom Style (+ the long hair – I am all about men with long hair after Gareth grew his!) and the locations of the portraits to name but a few.
