Win The Glitter Encrusted Wedding Shoes of Your Dreams with Agnes & Norman!

win anges and norman with rocknrollbride (2)

Finding the perfect pair of shoes for your wedding day can, for some brides, be way more difficult that finding the dress! You want something comfortable and beautiful, and if they didn’t cost a million quid that would be lovely too.

Enter Agnes & Norman, sister company of the wildly popular Rachel Simpson Shoes. Wanting to make shoes inspired by the past, creative director Rachel designed each pair while taking her cues from a bygone era (in fact the company is named after her own grandparents!) The combination of this with up to date shapes and wearable heels results in a truly unique collection.

Insert heart eyes emoji here!

I can lay testament to how comfortable they are too because I have three pairs myself (obsessed? moi?!) The heels are low meaning no pain at the end of the night, and the fit is generous.

Win a Pair of Agnes & Norman Shoes!

If you love these vintage styles (and glitter) just as much as I do then you are going to go completely crazy for today’s competition. Five lucky readers will win their choice of the following shoes – the only difficult part will be choosing which pair to have!

Pandora in Star Dust & Night Sky

Free Wedding Photography for Animal Lovers!

taylor wolf free wedding photography (6)

Yes, you read that right! If you’re an animal lover you could be in for the chance of having your wedding photographed absolutely FREE. I know this sounds too good to be true but I promise it’s not!

Wedding photographer Gemma of Taylor Wolf Photography loves animals, and animal themed weddings, so much that she is running this amazing competition for one lucky Rock n Roll couple to win their wedding photography with her.

“There’s a reason why I called my business what I did, because I’m crazy about animals!”, Gemma told me. “I incorporated the name Wolf because they are monogamous animals, and they value their family and social connections enormously but also their individuality. Much like me and the lovely couples I get to work with!”

If you have anything animal related in your wedding you can enter this contest! Are you having your pooch, kitty, bunny or iguana as a ring bearer? Maybe you’re wearing a leopard print dress or zebra print shoes? Is there going to be lots of taxidermy or an owl delivering your rings? You could even be eloping on a safari or getting married at a zoo!

There are two prizes up for grabs and a juicy 15% discount will be emailed to every single person that enters, even if they don’t win!

First Prize

One couple will win a full wedding photography package from Taylor Wolf Photography. Prize includes a pre-wedding engagement shoot, 8+ hours of wedding day coverage and 400+ fully edited digital images. The total prize value is £1600.

WIN Adorable Momiji Message Dolls for Your Wedding (Or Yourself!)

momiji 3

Momiji dolls are my new obsession. The idea is that you give them as gifts to people and add your own message of love – aww! Turn every doll upside down and tucked inside you’ll find a tiny folded card where you can write your own handwritten note, dream or wish. This makes them the perfect gifts for bridesmaids don’t you think!?

It’s hard to pick a favourite myself, but I am pretty drawn to the cutie patootie birthday girl… Loreli Love is a total bad ass, and how about this Cuddle Love Bug!?

d89ed05ec3ac11e290cd22000a1f90d7_7

Based in the UK, they are a small company of three people, but often work with guest designers from all over the world to create their adorable dolls. To celebrate the launch of their fancy new website, Momiji would like to give one Rock n Roll Bride reader £100 to spend on dolls!

They range in price from £13.95 to £18.95 so the lucky winner will get to choose around 6 or 7 dolls to ether keep for themselves (cheeky!) or give away to the people they love. I personally think they would make awesome wedding cake toppers too!

Win Wedding Planning Services Worth £5000 with Kirstin Halstead!

country-and-western-elopement-31

I’ve known wedding planner Kirstin Halstead for quite a few years. We first met at a very fancy industry event, where we both felt like fish out of water and spent nearly the entire night side by side trying not to make eye contact with anybody!

I liked her the moment we met. She’s warm, she’s friendly and she has a wicked sense of humour. In fact some of you will know Kirstin too. I featured her own adorable Nashville elopement just a few months ago!

So when she got in touch so say she’d love plan not one but two Rock n Roll Bride readers’ weddings for free, I jumped at the chance to help her host the contest.

“Hi! My name is Kirstin and I live in beautiful historic England in a small town in Yorkshire with my husband Ash”, she writes. “We plan weddings and elopements all over the world. I have a passion for the United States, fashion, parties, trend setting, rebelling against the norm and I drink way too much caffeine. In 2014 I went on a beautiful adventure with Ash to our favourite place in the world, and eloped. We got married in a secret location in the back roads and then partied the night away in Music City. It was intimate, romantic, perfect and we sang our vows to each other.”

“We plan destination weddings and elopements for the couple who cant sit still, they love to travel, long for adventure and have kick ass personal style and wanderlust.”

country-and-western-elopement-12

This amazing competition will have two winning couples, one getting married in England and the other getting hitched in Nashville!

She continues, “Having worked successfully in the wedding and events industry for nearing six years in the hotel, PR, wedding planning and transportation sector, I have the experience and excellent contacts in the United States and Europe. I can create the perfect adventure for you overseas. Be it a destination wedding with your nearest and dearest or maybe you want to ditch them and run away together on a romantic elopement, we have unrivalled knowledge of unique locations, world class suppliers and accommodation and secret hideaways that will take your breath away.”

“We eloped in Nashville and had the time of our lives. But most importantly our wedding was all about our love for one another and love of America. We have experienced eloping first hand and wouldn’t change a thing!”
