Flower Bomb: Chotronette Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Chotronette Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

With issue 13 now available for pre-order I thought it was high time to share some of the extra shots from our issue 12 editorial shoot with the incredible Chotronette.

If you haven’t seen their amazing wedding dresses before you have been missing out! They’re like nothing else you’ve ever seen AND they’re so affordable it’s almost unbelievable. They range from just £100 to £850! Based in Romania, designers Silvia and Laura make each of their beautiful creations in their studio and ship them worldwide.

We shot at the super rad Clapton Tram Studio in East London.

The hair of our usually blonde model, Pip, was made peachy pink by hairstylist extraordinaire Jo of Love Hair & Co.

Erica and Alex, who make up the magazine fashion team, styled each look by taking each dress and adding some extra Rock n Roll flair!

Heartbreak Hotel: An Elvis & Priscilla Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Elvis & Priscilla Wedding Shoot

Jacket: Next Shoes: Faith Bodysuit: ASOS Rings: House of Bourgeois from Folly Boutique

One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.

Skin Deep: A Bridal Shoot for Everyone

If you’ve picked up a copy of issue 7, you will have seen the Skin Deep photo editorial that I partnered with Nova of the Nu Bride on. Today I wanted to share a few extra shots with you all that didn’t make the magazine spread (it turns out 8 pages just isn’t enough ha!)

The idea behind this shoot was simple, and it was sparked from an email that Nova received after an article she wrote for issue 4 about cultural representation in the wedding industry.

“As a woman of colour who loves weddings and all things pretty, the cover of [and your article inside] Rock n Roll Bride is just heart warming to see and it is encouraging. Of course, I want to see people that look like me in wedding magazines, and it is nice to see a blog and person I respect featured in the magazine. Kudos to Nova and Rock n Roll Bride. Keep up the good work!” – Heather

I’ve always wanted to showcase different wedding inspiration to the mainstream on Rock n Roll Bride. Whether that be with the style of weddings or the people getting married. Rock n Roll Bride magazine was the first nationally available UK print magazine to feature a same sex wedding inside, and I’m pretty sure no other wedding magazine would ever publish a photo session with a bride rocking a beard!

Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory: The Veil Collection!

rocknrollbride x crown and glory veils headshot

When Sophie of Crown and Glory reached out to me three years ago to ask if I’d like to do a headpiece collaboration with her, I didn’t hesitate in saying “Hell yes!” I’d only ever met her in person once, very briefly, but I knew it would be the perfect fit. Since then we have gone on to collaborate on 30+ pieces together, over three collections.

Last summer we started discussing what our next range might entail and I suggested we do something completely different; veils. I know a lot of my readers buy our headpieces to wear on their wedding days, so it felt like an obvious evolution.

This capsule collection is made up of six pieces can all be customised to suit your own, distinctive style. The glitter bows come in 30 colour options, the Liberace heart encrusted gem veil can be created in any colour, and the Circle Slogan Veil was designed specifically to allow you to stamp their own word or phrase on it! These pieces are designed to be as individual as the brides that will wear them.
