French Fancie

OK so this was one of the weddings I was saving for the book (work in progress!) but after some of the responses I got to Leanne & Zach’s rice krispie wedding cake cakes I feel the need to post the french fancy wedding cake cakes!

I discovered this wedding when I was planning my own so it’s pretty old (from July 2007) but this was probably the first wedding I found that gave me some serious wedding envy!  I adore the vintagey details, the English country garden style and of course the awesome cake idea!

The Bride choose a stunning Pronovias gown (Edelweiss) and veil, teaming it with a beautiful hair slide from Glitzy Secrets.  The gorgeous stationary was designed by the lady herself (she has since started up her own stationary company but I’m really sorry I don’t have the link) and an old typewriter was used as a guest book.  The amazing bridesmaid dresses were actually from TK Maxx (TJ Maxx if you’re reading this in America) customised with some ribbon from VVrouleaux (I am in love with these dresses!) and the Bride also made the Bridesmaid’s lovely hairpieces.

Regular readers will know I am all about David McNeil’s fabulous wedding photography, I can’t help but feature his weddings all the time!

Fancy A Snog?

Oops!  Sometimes (like right now) I have so many things in my ‘to post’ folder that I overlook some of the best ones!  Terri and Sebastian actually found David McNeil through Rock ‘n Roll Bride so it’s only fair I post these exclusive and amazing engagement photos, shot in both London and Oxford.  You all know I am am avid fan of David’s work and these just prove how very talented he is.

A Different Style

Also at our wedding was my good friend David Mcneil – at that time just toying with the idea of getting into wedding photography…he took some pretty wicked snaps too, in a totally different style to our official wedding photographers.  It was awesome to see the wedding in two completely different ways.  Here are a select few of his amazing pictures..

Our Wedding

The time has come..I’m going to start the huge job of attempting to rebuild the old blog after my genuis skillz at deleted the blogspot site.  The posts will no doubt be briefer than before, as not only has the tempo and direction of Rock n Roll Bride moved on since these old posts but also it’s going to take hella long time – just the best of the best will make the new and improved Rock n Roll Bride!

Let’s start with the stuff surrounding our own wedding, back in April 2008 – shall I re-do the wedding report I wrote?  If you want it I can re-post it as I managed to recover a lot of the text on the old blog.  But right now I’ll just begin with some of our favourite photographs from the day taken by our fabulous wedding photographers English Rose Weddings.

Jon and Lucy’s Autumnal Wedding

One of my oldest friends Jon got married in October to Lucy.  It was a gorgeous autumn day full of laughter and fun.  My good friend David M McNeil did the wedding photography and aren’t they fab!?

I have posted about David’s work many a-time (on the old site – sigh) but I will never tire of doing so, he constantly surprises me with his amazing talent and no two weddings he shoots ever turn out the same.  I will endeavour to re-post some of David’s work asap as anyone who hasn’t seen it is surely missing out!

The wedding was a DIY affair, it was very important to the Bride and Groom that they did things the way they wanted not the way everybody told them to!  They are both very eco-conscious and took this into account with everything they planned.
