Wow what an exciting weeks it’s been so far. Not only are things hotting up (as ever) with the votes for the winners of the Kat Braman Free Photography Contest (if you haven’t voted yet then go ahead and do it already!) but blog land exploded with excitement over my Vintage Boudoir shots with Julia Boggio. We knew they’d go down well but we never expected anything like the response we got. Thanks so much for everybody who commented on the blog, on twitter and on facebook. I read every single one and they all brought a smile to my face. Extra special thanks to all the other bloggers who took the time to write about and share the photos on their blogs already – Hot Pink Brides, Little White Book Blog, Charley Beard, Plans and Presents, Always Andri, Flutterfly Events & Boho Wedding and Events.

♥ First up, I’ve cracked and joined Formspring. For those of you that don’t know, it’s a website where randoms ask you questions. I don’t quite ‘get’ the appeal right now but I guess that’s how Twitter started! Hell, if I get some good ones then I may even post them here next week. So, wanna ask me a question?

Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I’ve had a rough few days of late. I’ve been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh… so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week’s Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans :P

♥ First off – erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren’t they?
10 of the weirdest wedding invitations - I think they’re all pretty damn cool actually!
♥ Eeek! My Vintage Boudoir shoot from Julia Boggio is almost ready to share! Julia just send me a little teaser…man she’s naughty, now I’m even more excited to see them! How awesome are these going to be huh?

Hello my dears and welcome to the first Thursday Treats of the new decade! Just as big, just as inspiring and just as fit to bursting with links and fun a-plenty. Let’s crack on shall we?

♥ 2010 may only be in it’s infancy, but it has so far been a very exciting year for Rock n Roll Bride! Not only was I featured in Cosmopolitan Bride, was included in Bride Tide’s prestigious ‘100 Wedding Blogs (and Twitters) to Follow in 2010′ awards, (#1 under the ‘Offbeat’ section – hell yeah!) but I was lucky enough to be asked to model for the infamous Julia Boggio and her Vintage Boudoir series. I braved the snow yesterday and headed up to her Wimbledon studios for a day of fabulous retro hair & make up, styling to die for and to pose and pout my little ass off. I can not wait to share all the details and the photographs, but for now, why not check out my sneak peak shots that I took of (some!) of my outfits with my new favourite toy.

With Christmas literally hours away (eeek) you’d be forgiven for thinking I’d be winding down for the year and blog land would slowly have become a lonely little place. Naaahh my darlings!

I’ll be talking a few days off for Christmas but will be back early next week as usual. The posts may come a bit for sparsely but I will certainly be here. I hope you enjoy perusing these little gems and I’ll see you on the other side. Happiieee Chrrrismas…

Go check out Underneath the Petticoat, Clarabow’s Blog and (squeeeel) Gala Darling’s iCiNG blog. I friggin’ love blog land!

The Original Tattooed Brides

The original tattooed bride photographers, Allebach sent me these this morning and I had to get them up right away. What could be better to gaze at right before Christmas that tattooed beauties looking shaaweeet!?

The images came from a ‘shoot out’ in Philadelphia, where a bunch of photographers gets together and shoot the same situation together to learn from each other and generally get some kick ass imagery themselves…

So the Philly Photog Shootout happened. In case you haven’t heard a Photog shootout is an event where photographers meet, photograph models and learn from each other. Anyway Rob “Ninja” Nicholson contacted me because he wanted to get a punk rock bridal theme going and needed a few more models. So I reached out to the most amazing couples in the world (my clients) and got a few responses. Jess an amazing bride (and rollergirl) married earlier this year was one of the first to respond. Patty DeCasere (my old punk rock band‘s drummer’s former band‘s singer’s wife – got it?) did an amazing job giving Jess a mohawk.Alicia from the 20s flapper shoot we did at the historic Stotesbury Mansion handled the costume design (available for wardrobe at belle_morte66@yahoo.com)Erin Proud (wedding planner of Lori & Kevin’s Eastern State Penitentiary wedding) channeled her inner anger and teenage angst for the shoot, along with an amazing wedding photographer turned model, Leslie Gilbert.
