A Colourful Pom Pom Extravaganza

A Colourful Pom Pom Extravaganza (7)

There’s nothing that adds instant colour and fun to a wedding as easily as rainbow pom poms! While is why when I saw this shoot I knew I had to feature it.

The thing I love the most about these photos is that there are lots of ideas of how you can incorporate pom poms into your day in a more creative way that just hanging them from the ceiling. What about a pom pom headband, having them hanging from your bouquet or all over your cake!? You could craft a pom pom covered chandelier or throw them instead of confetti!

“This shoot was about us challenging ourselves to turn a pom-pom concept into something beautiful that translated into the wedding industry”, said stylist Janelle. “It was important to us that the style of the shoot always reflected the fun and excitement that we felt for it.”

Two Brides Are Better Than One: Barbie and Kendra Get Married

Two Brides Are Better Than One Barbie and Kendra Get Married (15)

Usually it takes a couple of months for something to be published on the blog after I receive a submission for a feature (yes, my wait list is huge!) but when Barbie and Kendra’s perfect pink pride-filled shoot landed in my inbox yesterday, and in light of the utterly tragic events in Orlando this week, I knew I had to let it jump the queue and feature it as soon as physically possible.

“I love doing styled shoots and am constantly brainstorming ideas for them that are out-of-the-box and never been seen before”, said stylist Leah of Color Pop Events. “One day the idea to do a Barbie-inspired wedding popped into my head, but I knew I wanted to shake things up a bit by have a lesbian couple for the models. I also knew that I wanted the shoot to be incredibly fun, pink and girlie. I must say that I am ecstatic with how it turned out!”

Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk Wedding Ideas

The theme of this shoot was Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk with a little bit of high fashion thrown in for good measure.

“I think Rock n Roll gets boxed in too easily”, explained photographer Phi Porto. “I am a former vocalist of a band, tattooed from head to toe and I used to only wear all black t-shirts and shorts. I am now married, run a business and I love men’s fashion, particularly wooden bow ties. I don’t believe I am any less punk rock or Rock n Roll. I still have the same passion and wanted to exemplify that through this shoot.”

“I wanted to inspire Rock n Roll brides to be themselves and not be boxed in by any title. The models for this shoot have completely different lives but from the blue hair of the bride to the sailor jerry style tattoos on the groom, they are still Rock n Roll!”

A Tim Walker Inspired Wedding

Inspired by some of Tim Walker’s most famous photographs, this wedding shoot was put together by French photographer Floriane Caux, stylist Madame Coquelicot and florist Poppy Figue.

“As a huge fan of fashion photographer Tim Walker, I secretly dreamed about doing a wedding inspired by his incredible world”, explained Floriane. “We based the shoot on several pictures. We wanted to give a knowing wink to his great art and put it into a wedding day. It was a hard task, believe me!”

How to Use Flowers to Add Personality to Your Wedding

How to Use Flowers to Add Personality to Your Wedding (4)

Roses, Gypsophila and Peonies are all gorgeous, but if you want to make a real statement with your wedding flowers its time to look outside of the obvious choices and inject your personality into the proceedings. Luckily, the team at Paragon Floral Design are here today to show you exactly how to do this!

“Your flowers can truly be designed about you as a couple”, they explain. “Our passion is to use them in unique ways, either by the way you hold them or by creating structures. There are so many cool and unusual things you can do with flowers and today we want to show you how!”

Paragon Floral Design pulled together this biker shoot exclusively for Rock n Roll Bride to show some of their more ‘out there’ ideas. Over to co-founders, Kate and Lisa.

Creating backdrops is becoming very popular and many couples have them to stand in front of for their ceremony, or as photo booth backgrounds. If you want to make yours really stand out then use flowers!

We used branches and many metres of chain with fantastically pink Gloriosa, to add drama. We also used Tillandsia Moss commonly known as ‘old man’s beard’! We added metallic gold and copper spray to the moss to contrast with the chains.

“The theme of this shoot was ‘tll death do us party and sophisticated grunge”, they explained. “We wanted to embrace the rawness of the venue and create a style that inspired couples to make their own rules when it comes to their wedding day. We wanted to create a moody feel whilst still embracing bursts of colour and featuring cow skulls consistently throughout our styling.”
