Little Diamond Necklace – The Winner!

Happy Sunday! A huge woohoo to everyone that shared links to their favourite photography inspiration, there were some amazing ones, and I will most definitely be featuring some of these wedding in the future.
So..the result you’ve all be waiting for, who has won the cute cute gorgeous gorgeous little diamond necklace? (which by the way I totally wish I could keep for myself!) Using a highly technical method, i.e asking the husband to pick a number between 1 and 46, the winner is..dum dum duuuum…

Number 17 – Eryn!

Our Winners – The First Meeting

I just got back from meeting out wedding photography competition winners with my friend and photographer David McNeil. Vana & Damien are even cooler in real life than they are on paper. We got on like a house on fire and spent about 2 hours chatting non-stop!

I knew Vana and I would get on as we have chatted on the phone a number of times (for like an hour at a time…we’re both big chatterboxes apparently!) but it was great to meet them both and to see how excited they are about their upcoming wedding. The couple have some amazing, unique and totally rock n roll (Damien is in a band after all) ideas and I can’t wait to see them all in November. 
So…my next task, my wedding outfit! To hat or not to hat?

We will be meeting the couple again in the next couple of months for their pre-wedding shoot, hopefully including some shots in the S&M Cafe! Didn’t I tell you they were bloody cool?

Here we all are drinking wine in the middle of the day and chatting all things wedding, and the photo of David – I took that..I’m pretty sure I’ve missed my calling!

ps if you want to still enter the contest to win the gorgeous little diamond necklace, you have one day left. Contest will be closing midnight tomorrow and I will be drawing the winner on Sunday..so get your nominations in if you want to be in with a chance!

New Contest – Tattoo Inspired Jewellery!

This Contest Is Now Closed

Don’t you just love free stuff? When I clapped eyes on Etsy seller, WickedMinky’s tattoo inspired jewellery I knew I had to have some and I knew they would make a fabulous prize!  So I bought myself a cuuute unicorn necklace and a swallow hair clip and I have to say they are absolutely gorgeous – so cute, so original, so rock n roll!  So maybe you wouldn’t actually wear these on your wedding day, but I know full well many of you may not be getting married for quite some time – so it’s nice to have a new toy to play with in between then and now right?

WickedMinky has donated this gorgeous little diamond necklace…OK so it’s not real diamonds, but I pretty much think a tattooed style diamond is the next best thing! (The amazing bird hairclip is mine I’m afraid..I also bought this unicorn…LOVE!)

I thought long and hard about the competition question for this contest, and actually The Husband came up with this one…I want to know What is your favourite inspiring wedding photograph ever and why?! I want to know which photograph you saw and just thought “wow!” The one you kept going back to, the one you immediately saved into your ‘wedding’ folder (I know we all have them!) It can be a photograph you found here on Rock n Roll Bride or it can be one you found elsewhere (please please please include photo credit with your entry if possible)

And you know what, just because I am aaalll about the sharing, this contest is not just open to Brides-to-be, if you’re a photographer and want to share your favourite ever wedding photograph please feel free! You can enter as many times as you like, but please – one entry/photograph per comment.

I’ve been going though my archives to find my favourite and I have found it really bloody hard to choose just one…so I’ve chickened out and gone for a selection just to get you started…

Because this Bride has some serious kick arse attitude + fabulous tattoos and sunnies

Brand New Contest – Win A Felt, Button Bouquet!

Ooooh I am excited and super pleased to be able to bring you another fabulous Rock n Roll Bride contest and the lovely Jennifer from Ribbons n Bows Boutique has kindly donated a fabulous black, white & pink felt, button bouquet as the prize….here it is, isn’t it awesome? In fact I kinda want it!

So what do you have to do to enter I hear you cry? Well it’s simple…I’m after a new slogan for the site.  I’m getting a little bored of ‘Wedding Inspiration..In a Rock n Roll Way’ and I’m lacking inspiration myself.  The only constraint is that I still want the phrase ‘Rock n Roll’ to be in there somewhere.  So hit me with it!  Put your entry in the comment section of this post and my favourite will not only win the bouquet, but will become the creator of my slogan to be used on all Rock n Roll Bride stuff…fab huh?

This contest is now closed
