Linzie Russo free wedding photography 1

It’s a sad day when such a talented photographer ups sticks from the UK and moves over to sunnier shores… well it is for us anyway, you guys down under are in for a treat! Wedding photographer Linzie Russo is a half Aussie, half Scot babe who was born in Iran and has spent most of her life travelling the world! For the past three years she’s called Glasgow home, but has recently made the decision to move back to Sydney in dire need of some nicer weather!

To celebrate, she wants to offer one very lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader in Australia completely free wedding photography. Oh my goodness!

“My photography has been described as creative, natural, fresh and romantic”, she told me. “I have also been described as a ninja because I work alone, manage to get everywhere yet no one knows I am about! I am a lover of natural light and sunshine, which is often hard working in Scotland that doesn’t have much! I love the details of a wedding that has been created over many months to make their wedding personal to the couple.”

“My favourite part of the day is the morning watching the bride get ready. I love being creative in photographing the dresses, shoes, flowers and rings. After that the next best part of the day is the moment I have when the couple are alone and we get to play around with the portraits. I love a bride who isn’t afraid of getting a bit a sand on her dress or climbing fences to get into a field in order to get the ‘winning’ shot!”

WIN 125 Mini Bottles and a Magnum of Freixenet Cava!

Freixenet Wedding rocknrollbride9

When Freixenet, the Spanish cava producers, got in touch to ask if I wanted to have a party on them, and share the results on my blog, I nearly fell off my chair. Talk about my dream job! Then they told me they also wanted to include the chance for my readers to win enough cava to keep their wedding rocking well into the wee hours and I almost did a backflip!

Now I’m no wine snob, but I’m not going to lie to you, I initially thought there must be some kind of catch. When it comes to fizz I know what I like, and more importantly what I don’t like. What if it was horrible? Would I have to fib my way through this post and tell you otherwise..? But I need not have worried. When we cracked open the Cordon Negro, their flagship product, and took a sip, we were all suitably impressed.

WIN A Personalised Hen Party Prize Pack from Banana Moon Clothing!

Ahh the great British hen do… the chance for brides-to-be and their friends to blow off some pre-wedding steam, get royally sozzled and (most likely) cause a bit of harmless chaos in the process. I’ve always been a bit of a party girl, so far from something I frown upon, I can totally see the appeal of all of the above. In fact I totally did all of the above for my own!

Although I refused to play into the sash wearing, penis straw sucking stereotype, we sure did cause a riot that night out in central London. I don’r regret one second of it (OK, so I might regret my choice of shoes. Too high heels combined with too much wine meant I fell over a LOT). It really was just what I needed before finally becoming Mrs Williams.

WIN a Hen Party Kit!

If you’re not sure what your plans are for your own hen do yet, let me entice you with this idea. Banana Moon Clothing would like to give one lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader the perfect hen prize package.

Plus, with brands including American Apparel and Dickies in their arsenal, and organic cotton options available, personalised t-shirts no longer means one-size-fits-all poly monstrosities!
