Purple Rain

Featuring UK weddings makes me happy. Not only because I know being a British blogger makes me stand out from the crowd, but because it makes me so happy that us Brits are finally catching up to our American friends in the style stakes! Therefore to celebrate I’m going to blog not one, but two awesome UK weddings today (and a little bit of California dreamin’ at the end of the day - sorry I can’t resist it.)

I’m kicking off with a wedding that’s not only fabulously unique but the bride is in a purple dress! It was actually an Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dress but certainly did the job as a glamorous and unique bridal outfit.

1920′s Glamour Puss

This stunning vintage shoot was put together by Vicky Rowe ( Styling) of Vintage Teasets, Bella & Fifi and Floriture (flowers),  Clifton Cakes and photographer Rosie Parsons. Other shout outs needed for the fabulous hair and make up gals - Donna Owens, Sarah Brock & Becky Simpson.

One of the best things about this whole set has got to be the fabulous fashion huh? It looks so authentic and wonderfully unique. They used reproduction and actual vintage dresses supplied by Lindsay Fleming, Elizabeth Avey and Leluxe Clothing. The awesome feathered and diamante head pieces were supplied by Sheena Holland (the crochet wire knit pieces were supplied with the Lindsay Fleming dresses).and wait for it – original 1920′s Manolo Blahniks! Oh hell yes! Well done to everyone involved – truly a triumph.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Bea & Thomas flew from the UK to Germany with their photographers David & Klaus for a photo shoot to remember! David explains…

I took these images of Bea and Thomas with my photo partner, Klaus, in a dockyard and the whole idea was just to surprise the gorgeous couple (who did great even with zero modelling experience) with the surroundings. They had no idea where we were taking them (“bbb…but this isn’t the way to the airport!”) but by the time we cracked open the Champagne and set up the gear they were loving every bit of it.

Woohoo! It’s my favourite time of the month again…Photo Pro time! I’m still not over the fact that I get to be in a real life magazine. Excitement overload. This month I got to write about one of my favourite types of photography and one of the first photographers I became blogging friends with – Tara Kneiser and the joy that is Holga!

Why hello December, you snuck up on us real fast didn’t you?! I’m not quite ready to get proper festive just yet, but here’s my usual conglomerate of candy sweetness to keep you going until I am.

♥ How had I let Cliché magazine pass me by?! Plus my friend Lara Jade (well online friend… I like to fantasise that we are actually buddies) is thrice featured! So much swoon
♥ I may not be ready for Crimbo yet but I’m sure some of you would like help with your shopping. This is the definitive playgirl shopping list
DIY engagement shoot. I love.
Valentino. Yes please.
♥ A simple yet and wonderful seaside wedding
♥ Girlie, ruffled, gorgeous
The Groom style to beat all groom style. Three words - Velvet. Teal. Jacket.
Take your blog to a whole new level
♥ I want to eat this
♥ Freakin’ kick ass wedding polaroids (via a desert fete)
♥ What cool and awesome reception details!
♥ Beautiful 1920′s inspired wedding shoot
♥ 17 crazily gorgeous and completely unique business card ideas (via Princess Lasertron)
♥ OMG this dress! I can’t wait to see more of this wedding…
♥ Cinematic & awe-inspiring shoot
♥ Hee hee! Tea cup with little legs!
♥ UK photographers, Tino & Pip are desperate for an awesome Rock n Roll couple’s wedding to shoot. Therefore they are offering half price coverage to a deserving and rockin’ couple!
♥ This is not a new article, but a friend of mine sent this to me to cheer me up. Feeling jealous of other people’s success and inadequate with what I’m doing with Rock n Roll Bride is part of the job of trying to make a success of your own business I guess! Don’t be different, be unique! (Thanks Andri – mwah)
♥ If you are still on the hunt for quirky, unique & adorable bridesmaid dresses then look no further than Quail Bridal. I am currently having a love affair with the teal ‘toasting’ dress
♥ I love these authentic vintage touches
♥ I just had to share this image shot by The Nichols from Sarah & Jaime’s wedding. After pink, this shade of green is my favourite colour ever. For the full report head over to Green Wedding Shoes later today.

♥ Shhh! An incognito New York Photographer is running a photo shoot contest. Incognito because they are keeping their identity a secret so not so influence the entries they receive. They say,
In an effort to only attract the most creative, I have decided to remain anonymous. I do not want contestants going to my website for inspiration on what they think I may be looking for. I want them to be creative and original. I realize that this is unorthodox, but I truly believe this will enable me to find the type of contestants I seek.

I would love it if a Rock n Roll couple won this. Come on you can do it!

The Mold Breakers Contest

♥ Living TV are still on the look out for a Rock n Roll couple to take part in the next series of Four Weddings. If you’re in the UK and getting hitched between now and March then get in touch! For anyone who hasn’t seen the show before, here’s the info from the production team:

We are casting for the second series of “Four weddings” which see’s 4 brides attending each others’ weddings as guests and they will judge & score the day as a whole based on four categories, The Dress, The Food, The Venue and The Overall Experience. The scores are not disclosed amongst the other brides until after all the weddings when it will be revealed whose wedding has been judged the best! The bride with the highest score at the end of the show will win a Luxury dream honeymoon.
We would really love a real variety of weddings celebrating different cultures and personal interests.We would love to include a gothic wedding or burlesque wedding, however we’re open to all sorts of weddings.This wedding would need to be taking place in December, January or February.
