I’ve got an extra special Sunday Kind of Love post for you today and a BONUS giveaway for one lucky reader. I was contacted by Simon of Memento Mori Jewellery (and yes I have informed him that he must get himself a proper website!) last week to show me some of his latest collection of sterling silver jewellery. As soon as I laid eyes on the collection, my eyes were immediate drawn to one ring in particular…can you see why?!
Well the lovely Simon offered to send me one as a very generous gift, unfortunately the first one I received was too small (darn those online ring size charts!) but instead of sending it back Simon has allowed me to keep it to give away to one lucky reader.
The ring is approximately a UK ring size “I” but could be worn on a chain if it was too small. It is cast out of sterling silver and is worth £95!
To enter simply comment below by Wednesday 2nd March 2011. The winner will be announced in next week’s Thursday Treats.

I wanted to start this edition off by announced the winner of the stupendously popular competition to win a custom wedding dress from Knot Couture. Big love to everyone who entered – we had 79 comments which really did make it hard to decide who would win the dress. However after much deliberation both myself and the Knot Couture girls would like to award the grand prize to…
Natasha Tenney who said:
“Wow. You already have some great entries to win one of these gorgeous dresses. So why do I deserve to win? I live in a small southern town and so far, I’ve not been treated exactly welcome by any of the bridal shops here because like many of the women who adore Rock n’ Roll Bride, I am covered in tattoos. Even though tattoos seem to become more socially accepted all the time, it’s almost as if these snooty girls think that because I have art all over my body I don’t deserve an absolutely gorgeous and girly wedding dress. It’s very disheartening because even though on most days you will find me in t-shirts, jeans, and boots, I want my fella’s jaw to drop on that special day. He’s a wonderful man who’s raising my three little ones as his own, and he sees me everyday without the make-up and frills. I want our wedding (which is October 15 of this year) to be the one of those times when he sees me and has his breath just taken away. One of these eight gorgeous creations would definitely help do the trick! Then, I want to send a picture to each and every one of these bridal shops who treated me like I didn’t deserve a pretty dress, and let them know that their magazine dresses weren’t good enough for ME! Got my fingers crossed!!!”
It was the Pretty Woman-esque story that did it for me. I know the feeling Natasha and I really do hope you send them some photos aftewards…maybe giving them the finger?! Natasha, the Knot Couture girls will be in touch asap to get the ball moving on creating your beautiful dress!
Huge thanks to everyone that entered, and if you weren’t lucky enough to win, fret not because Knot Couture would like to offer 10% off the purchase of any of their dresses from their etsy store when you quote ROCKNROLLBRIDE10 at the checkout. Orders must be placed by March 9th 2011 to qualify.
Oooh what a lot of excitement! Let’s continue on with that and this week’s Thursday Treats shall we?

This for me is Wedding week! I get married next weekend at the gorgeous Coworth Park. What better way to kick it off than drinks at the beautiful browns brides! I’m just round the corner and I don’t need an excuse to pop round to their shop to see how my gorgeous dress is doing xxx

This week I was lucky enough to meet the legendary wedding planner Mark Niemierko. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous about meeting him as I really didn’t know what to expect… or why a celebrity/high end wedding planner would want to meet me. However I’m pleased to report back that we got on like a house on fire! I seriously love this dude. He may be the planner du jour to the stars and I may be the punk rock chick with funny coloured hair and one to many tattoos, but over a couple of Cosmopolitans and a lot of gossip, I realised we’re very very similar indeed! I have since decided that we are best friends…and yes I do mean this in a stalkery kind of way.
Every year Mark hosts an exclusive Valentine’s Party, and this years celebration is to be held THIS TUESDAY (8th February) at Browns Bride, London. I’ll be there (what more could you want!?) as will a whole host of the most exciting and influential wedding industry glitterati (I’ve also heard on good authority that mark will be sporting something velvet. Ooh lala.)
This is a strictly invite only event.
Mark Niemierko in collaboration with Browns Bride and Rock n Roll Bride would like to offer one lucky reader, two tickets for the party of the season. All you have to do to enter is comment below and let us know why you’d like to come. This contest is open to all readers of Rock n Roll Bride – brides to be, photographers, other industry professionals, general wedding obsessives – so get entering!
As the party is in just two days time you must be quick! This contest closes tomorrow (Monday 7th) at midnight and the winner will be announced on the blog tuesday at 9am!
The winner will be chosen by Rock n Roll Bride & Mark Niemierko. Judges decision is final.
The prize includes two tickets to the Valentine’s Party at Browns Bride, London. Winners must organise their own transport and accommodation if needed.
Winners will be notified by email on Tuesday morning. If you enter, please check your email early so I can get you & your guest’s full names added to the guest list of the party right away! This is an exclusive, invite only event.
I hope to see some of you there! And don’t forget, if you can’t make this party, be sure to sign up for the Rock n Roll Party of the year! You have until next Sunday (13th February) to do so and the lucky 200 who have secured an invite will be announced on the blog over the next few weeks.

I’ve got an extra special Sunday Kind of Lovin‘ on the blog for you today in the form of a bonus giveaway! When illustrator and designer Erin of BerinMade emailed me this week to share some of her new designs, I was instantly smitten with them – especially her “I want to licorice you” design – it’s so cute!
Erin has very kindly donated 3 A4 sized ‘licorice’ prints + 3 hand lettered valentine’s day cards for me to give away to 3 very lucky readers! All you have to do to enter is go check out the brand new BerinMade etsy shop and comment below saying why you love/deserve/want a couple of her gorgeous designs to adorn your walls.
The 3 winners will be chosen at random and must reside in the UK. Each winner will win both an “I want to licorice you” plus a hand-lettered valentine’s day card. You have until Wednesday 19th Jan 2011 to enter and winners will be announced on the blog in next week’s Thursday Treats post.
