Do you remember Becky & John and their ‘Most Curious Party’ wedding that I featured back in January? Well, the lady is not now only a vintage wedding stylist, supplying vintage trinkets, teasets and details other brides and grooms to be (check out her company A Most Curious Party) but she is a brilliant writer. She was tasked with writing a piece on bridal jewellery trends for trade magazine ‘Jewellery Focus’ and she asked me to help her out. It was of course a pleasure and I’m more than happy after seeing that I’ve been put alongside gorgeous images of Flo & Percy, Pearls & Swine, Vintage Magpie and Karin Andreasson.
Thanks to Becky for including me. Check it out…
Check out Ursula & Chris’ fantastically cool wedding. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw her Claire Pettibone dress (I wrote about these dresses a while back beacause they are called the ‘rock n roll bride’ collection!) Oh holy black tulle! “‘I fell in love with my ‘Midnight’ gown from Claire Pettibone’s rock and roll bride range the moment I tried it on. The mix of vintage style, beautiful beading, delicate embroidery and edgy black train make it a very special dress. I just loved the way my long veil looked against the slightly gothic black train. Breathtaking!” Ursula explained.
As most of you will know I’ve had a busy few weeks which all culminated in yesterday’s epic photo shoot. I am literally dying to share the results with you and am just waiting on the final images. I was seriously going to hold of sharing anything about the shoot but I literally might burst…so I hope you like these few sneaky Instax sneak peeks!

I love meeting people. I love gossipping, chatting and planning new ideas and projects. About every 6 months I try to organise a little get together for a few people I know. They have been great so far for getting people together to not only meet for the first time but to put some time aside to catch up with old friends. The latest meet, last Tuesday was the most successful one yet! There was a huge turn out (considering last time there were about 5 of us!) and the whole night flew by way too quickly!
There is no other way to describe this Warwick Castle shoot than kick ass. Is photographer Steve Gerrard fo’ real? I can’t get over how much I adore these and how much I want to be this bride!
“I’m one of the castle’s recommended wedding photographers” Steve explained “so when I asked the lovely Katie Hill at the castle about doing the shoot, she was more than helpful, even allowing us to shoot long after the public had to leave the venue.” Steve was helped along by local vendors The Bridal Boutique who donated the gorgeous Lou Lou Bridal dress and The Blossom Tree who helped out with the flowers.
Steve wanted to shoot two different sides of the bridal story so he found Steph, a classic English rose (you can see her session here)and Laura – the gorgeous, heavily tattooed chicka you see below. Rock-the-hell-on!
This week’s Sunday lovin’ could only go to one pair of girlies. Emma & Laura of the way-too-fabulous, chic and uber cool Fur Coat No Knickers. Their beautiful store is filled to the rafters with amazing vintage dresses and if you’re on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind, genuine vintage gown then look no further! They are located in Kingsly Court, just off Carnaby St in London. I can’t reveal too much about why they’re my Sunday lovin’ gals this week…yet…but if you follow me on Twitter you may have pieced together a few sneaky left clues about what I’m up to next week. There is muchos excitements in Rock n Roll Bride land this coming week and I can’t wait to share it all with you…But until then go check out their website and blog, and even better, if you’re in London, go visit them in their gorgeous shop!
