I was sad because I could only find these two images from this gorgeous looking wedding last week..but now I am happy because the photographer recognised my plight and sent me more from this amazing wedding!
I asked Nigel to tell me a little about himself and the couple, and he did it so well that I’m not going to try and re-write his words..so here they are in all their glory
I am a wedding photojournalist who captures the real moments of a couple’s special day. My style is completely candid and un-posed, and I have an eye for the unusual. Couples looking for something different come to me, because they know I shoot alternative unions (be they in the form of weddings, civil partnerships or parties) and they know I will listen to their needs & take care of them.
I worked as a fashion stylist for several years before moving behind the lens, so I love it when couples with a strong sense of style approach me with their own unique take on a wedding. It’s something I can really get my teeth into. The people that tend to use me like to break the mould, even if it’s only a little.
The bride [in this wedding] had a strong sense of style, whilst her groom was much more conservative. She had this fabulous dress as you can see, and she just lit up everyone around her, wherever she went. The couple decided to hold their wedding over two days; the first day being just the service and a meal for family and close friends, and the second day they threw a huge party at The Groucho Club for everyone they knew. Their choices of clothing and the venues really put an alternative touch on the whole affair. A wedding that will be remembered.
I hope you like these photographs as much as I do. Big up the UK photographers!
I am a little bit sad that I can only find these two images from this set..however they are stunning enough to post all on their own.

Oh YES! I am all about the British talent today..Rosie Parsons (who shot these fabulous red dress images) literally send me these 5 minutes ago and I had to post the right away! The shoot took place in a skate park in Bristol on Monday and isn’t this Bride stunning in black and red?

Marianne Taylor is a super talented British photographer who I got in touch with after my friend David recommended I featured her work…Now I couldn’t choose between these two fantastic engagement shoots, they are both so quintessentially British what with the London skyline, the London eye and a red phone box.
Love it! (Check out Marianne’s blog for more)

I get a little bit over excited when I get to feature UK based weddings/photographers and I nearly squealed with excitement to find an email in my inbox from Rosie Parsons, the Bristol based genius behind these fantastic images. I am very much looking forward to featuring a lot more of her Rock n Roll weddingy images very soon. For now, just feast your eyes on these little beauties…If you haven’t seen these before, you need them in your life…

It makes me very happy when I find such a gorgeously stylish and unique wedding that’s from the UK. In my career as unique/kooky/rock n roll wedding blogger/obsessive I would say 95% of the weddings I feature are American. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I have been able to take so much inspiration from my trans-atlantic friends that I feel have really made Rock ‘n Roll Bride stand out in the UK market.
So here we have it, a beautiful wedding shot by Lillian & Leonard (the girl behind one of my favourite UK blogs Peonies & Polaroids). This wedding took place in bonny Scotland in September so they really played a risky game by having an outdoor do! Luckily it paid of, the weather looks beautiful.
The yellow and pink theme makes me smile.
