National Wedding Show Ticket Giveaway & Exclusive Sneak Peek of Our New Veil Collection!!

Crown & Glory with Rock n Roll Bride, London Shoot.

Can you believe that the first National Wedding Show of the autumn season is next weekend? Me either! It seems like it was only about a month ago that we were doing the spring shows. I am super excited to get back on the road though, meet as many of you as possible and of course, launch my brand new veil collection that I’ve designed in collaboration with Crown and Glory!

Today I wanted to get you a little bit excited about the new range with a cheeky sneak peek of the lookbook shoot we did last week. Plus I’m hosting a contest to give away 25 pairs of tickets to the shows so you can come and see them in person! Keep reading until the end to find out how to enter.

The new collection is a bit more grown up that the last one, but still girly, glittery and super fun…

And even we’ve created our first full length veil! Yes those are holographic stars at the bottom!

As always, each piece will be fully customisable meaning you can select your preferred choice of embellishments. This is just a tiny preview, to be the first to see and order from the full collection then you’ll have to come along to one of the shows where the collection is being launched.

The Rock n Roll Bride Collection is BACK… & it’s Going to be Better Than Ever!

NWS16_Rock and Roll Bride_210x297_AUTMN.indd

I’m so excited to let you know that I’m partnering with the UK’s biggest wedding show for the second time for their Autumn season! The Rock n Roll Bride Collection is coming back to the National Wedding Show and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

Not only will we have some of the coolest alternative wedding suppliers exhibiting with us, but after getting your feedback on the last shows, we’re planning to make the interactive workshops much better too. Sophie and I will even be doing a flower crown one (watch this space!)

But that’s not all, I am also super pumped that at every show you’ll be able to browse the Rock n Roll Bride Gallery, a carefully curated new section which will feature some of my personal favourite wedding suppliers. This section is going to be invite only, meaning I’ll be personally emailing the designers and makers that I’m obsessed with to ask them along.

The shows are taking place in London from 23-25th September, Birmingham from 30th September-2nd October and Manchester on 22nd & 23rd October and if you’re super keen you can snap up your tickets right now.

WEDDING SUPPLIERS, READ THIS!

Do you want to be there with me? Do want to put your product or service in front of upward of 16,000 brides and grooms that will attend each of these huge events?

The Rock n Roll Bride Collection is a carefully selected area of only the most awesome wedding suppliers. The area within the show is a place to showcase anything from outrageous bridal gowns, quirky wedding cakes, wacky stationery, rocking jewellery, flipping fantastic photography, and much, much, more! So if you do something a little bit weird, a little bit different and something definitely left-field, then we want to hear from you!

How to Get the Perfect Fit for your Wedding Dress

Caroline Arthur Event Rock n Roll Bride

A few weeks ago I was invited by wedding dress designer Caroline Arthur to attend her Perfect Fit Event at the picturesque Gate Street Barn near Guildford. The day was put on, not just to promote the amazing suppliers involved, but to share information to help educate brides about how to get the right fit for their wedding dress. This is something Caroline is super passionate about so it was so inspiring to see her in action. We even made a short film about it. I learnt so much too!

The room was set up like an enchanted garden, with spectacular flowers from Hannah Martin.

Caroline’s British-made CoutureKit dresses and fabrics were set up at one end, and at the other was gorgeous lingerie from Guilt Lingerie, who were on hand to give brides great advice about what to wear under their wedding dress.

Get Your Wedding Photography Questions Answered Live!

crown and glory Kat Alexa Loy-47

Facebook Live is my new favourite thing. People have been telling me I should do YouTube for years, and although I’ve kind of secretly wanted to, I was worried about a) knowing what to talk about b) finding the time and c) having to learn how to edit video! Facebook Live has changed the game because now I can simply grab my phone, go live and chat away to my heart’s content!

I’ve done a few broadcasts over on my Facebook page so far and the most enjoyable one was the Q&A I did last week. So I’ve decided to do another, but this time with a special guest and on a specific topic.

Tomorrow, on Thursday 16th June at 6pm GMT, I will be joined by award winning wedding photographer Lisa Devlin and we’re going to answer your questions on one of our favourite subjects – wedding photography! We want to use this session to help YOU so this is your opportunity to get your burning questions answered.

Hello Kitty Pop Up at Cutter and Squidge

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This isn’t strictly a wedding related post, but when I shared some snaps from my visit to the Hello Kitty pop up cafe in London, I had so many comments and questions about it so I thought I’d share a few more photos.

It would also make such a fun alternative hen do activity, or like we did, as a little pre-wedding dress shopping treat. We were in London to do some wedding dress shopping for Sophie so it worked out really well doing both at the same time (cake also helps you make better decisions don’t you think?)
