Vivienne Westwood 2012 Bridal Collection – Exclusive First Look & Win Tickets to The Luxury Wedding Show London

I’m pretty sure by now that you’re aware of what a HUGE Vivienne Westwood lover I am, so when they guys at The Luxury Wedding Show, London called me as asked if I wanted to share the exclusive first showing of Vivienne’s latest bridal collection…well I just about died.

They say of the collection, “For this latest bespoke Couture and Bridal Collection, Vivienne Westwood has extended the collection up to 20 styles, whilst remaining faithful to her strong belief that femininity ought to be celebrated. The tailoring, corsetry, crinoline, and soft lines of this collection all enhance the feminine silhouette. There are silk satins, georgette and chiffon for the draped and slinky styles, silk duchess and taffetas for the gowns, and embroidery, lace, tulle and sequins all to enhance the couture styles. The collection is romantic yet strong with the colour palette ranging from  white, soft ivories, champagne, dusty pinks, gold, to a sumptuous red. The Westwood bride is an independent woman and this is reflected in the collection.”

Win Free Wedding Photography with Laura Babb

R&RB002

London based photographer Laura Babb wants to shoot Rock n Roll Bride – so what better way to get what she wants than to host a competition where one of you lucky lot can win her services for your wedding.

Living in Camden, Laura loves all things quirky and alternative and she wants this to extend to her wedding photography too. She says, “I started my wedding photography journey after studying fine art photography.  A friend asked me to photograph their wedding and I loved it so much that I decided then and there that a wedding photographer was what I want to be when (if?!) I grow up.”

RnRb002

“I love photographing anything but I’m drawn to the weird, wonderful and quirky.  When I’m not photographing weddings I like street photography and photographing urban landscapes. I also love art, architecture, Bikram yoga, cups of tea, cake, wine, cake and wine, backcombing my hair, fascinators, indie and folk music, power ballads, purple, gerberas, Star Trek (yes, really!), people watching and shiny things.”

“I’m lucky enough to have several weddings booked for next year that will be really original, fun and unique.  I want more though!  The weddings on Rock n Roll Bride often have me squealing with delight and I’d really like to work with a couple who have really thought about the detail of their big day. I’m not looking for the most off the wall couple (although off the wall is always, always good) but the couple with plans for a wedding day that reflects them and their uniqueness.”

RnRb001

This amazing prize of free wedding and engagement photography is open for one couple between now and the end of 2012 (excluding Sept 2012 as Laura is getting married herself!)

WIN An Engagement & Video Shoot with Assassynation Photography, Sassy n Frank & Elbie Van Eeden!

Rock n Roll Bride regular and favourite Sassy of Assassynation Photography, along with Frank from her sister venture Sassy n Frank, would like to offer one lucky reader of Rock n Roll Bride a free engagement shoot including professional (and erm… awesome) hair and make up to by another Rock n Roll Bride favourite Elbie Van Eeden (whenever I have a photo shoot or event to go to I always ask Elbie to make me up – she’s the BEST!)

Sassy wants to shoot the most awesome engagement shoot idea, so you’ll have to come up with something good! She wants to be challenged (tip: as does Elbie so come up with some awesome hair and make up ideas too!) The shoot can take place anywhere in the world but travel costs must be covered for Sassy, Elbie and Frank…

Oh yeah, did I mention you’ll get a video of the shoot too?! I know…we’re too good to you. The video would make a perfect digital invitation so we’d like the winner to not have sent their wedding invites out yet so you can burn the video to disc and include it to show it off to all your friends and family!

You’ll get two versions of the video – a ‘clean’ version and a copy with all your wedding info on to send out as part of your wedding invitations.

And the Next Rock n Roll Bride Intern is…

It was a hotly contested battle but I’m pleased to announce that after 20,000 votes (!) that the next Rock n Roll Bride intern is…

Congratulations Miss Roo, I very much look forward to getting to know you and sharing your (sure to be) awesome wedding planning story with the readers of Rock n Roll Bride.

Roo & her fiance Lamb are right at the beginning of their wedding planning so I know we’re going to have loads of good stuff to read about! I have to say I’m super excited to see which suppliers they book and all the awesome DIY projects that I’m sure they’re going to get stuck into too…

Roo & I are actually going to meet in actual real life on Wednesday too (and I’m bringing a photographer friend with me to capture it.) I’m so excited!! From what I know about her so far I think she’s all kinds of awesome and we’re going to be BFF’s for sure.

Roo will be writing a monthly column for the blog (for now…maybe more if y’all want it or she comes up with any extra ideas!) which will be posted on the first Monday of each month…and as today is the 1st August I thought I’d throw her in at the deep end by sharing her first post right now.

We are also yet to come up with a nice catchy title for Roo’s posts…like how Alice became Alice in Weddingland…Can you help? Comment below if you’ve got any bright ideas. My idea of “Roo says I Do” made even me want to die inside with it’s cheesiness.

Welly, welly, well. When I sat and wrote my application to Kat a few weeks ago, I of course had hoped, but certainly not expected to be sat addressing you all now as her brand new intern. Lamb actually asked me, “aren’t you excited to have your words and thoughts read by thousands of people?” Let me tell you, the only word for it is ludicrous. Last week’s voting process was both stomach churning and exhilarating, and I’m certain that I’ve accrued several more grey hairs than usual (plus, it wreaked havoc with my quitting-smoking regime).  Besides reading some fabulous words of support from total strangers here on the blog (thank you, each one of you, you gave my ego a fantastic boost) my favourite part of last week by far was getting to “meet” and have a natter with some really outstanding individuals. To name them outright would merely omit the many other outstanding individuals who took the time to read and vote for my application, so I hope my powers of e-telepathy are working today and that you simply know who you are.

Of course, I simply must extend my gratitude first and foremost for Kat. When we heard that the voting had ended, I wrote my immediate impressions on the whole experience to date over at my blog. There, I expressed being humbled by everyone who had faith in me and the vision that Lamb and I have for our wedding; that warm, fuzzy feeling started with Kat from the moment she shortlisted me, and has been an unstoppably-spreading force ever since. I am excited by the prospect of making a new friend in my new “boss”, and by all the doors, windows and cat-flaps of opportunity she could open up for me as I share this dizzying experience with you.

All that remains for me to do is give you a little heads-up on my not-so-distant future posts, and introduce our story properly.
