In the last 12 months I have published 858 posts on Rock n Roll Bride…that’s a lot of weddings, a lot of photo shoots and a lot of personal rambles! As is customary at this time of year, I wanted to take the time reflect on the past 365 days by sharing some of my all time favourite blog posts. So here’s part 1, January to June. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for part 2!
At the beginning of the year I launched my ‘How to…’ series, where I aimed to impart some of my (ahem) wedding and blogging wisdom where I could. In this first installment I wanted to help a reader plan her wedding as in just a few months.
One of my favourite weddings of the year belonged to Rebecca & John, who had a quintessentially British wedding with lots of fabulous quirky twists, Rebecca enjoyed planning her wedding so much that she set up her own vintage wedding styling company, aptly named A Most Curious Party, soon after.
Ella & Sam’s London wedding was one of enviable vintage glamour and sophistication. It was an honour sharing such gorgeousness on these pages.
My first photo shoot of the year was with photographic legend Julia Boggio. Not only was this shoot super fun (even braving the snow to get there and back!) but doing it put me in touch with some fabulous industry peeps that I’ve worked with since…and have plans to work with again very soon! Watch this space… (pictured above)
Planning a wedding can be stressful at the best of times, but what should you do if your relatives disapprove of your wedding choices? I tried to help Allison out with just this dilemma.
I loved Matt & Danielle’s wedding so much that I blogged it in two parts. Their tattoos and their awesome style really did make for one of my most memorable weddings of the year. (pictured above)
Ever seen a bride wearing a latex wedding dress? Well I have and it was utterly fabulous!
I wanted to share some love for Valentine’s day with some personal pictures.
Samuel & Jessica’s Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding not only graced the pages of Rock n Roll Bride, but was featured on a WEtv reality show called “Girl Meets Dress.” Their emotionally charged ceremony made my heart melt.
Karri & Ian’s glam goth Scissorhand’s inspired wedding certainly made an impact, and their ‘winter in summer’ theme was totally dramatic and gorgeous!
Sarah & Kevin didn’t have a huge budget, so chose to get married in front of a few close friends in one of their back garden’s, followed by a casual picnic reception.
Elodie & Greg’s Australian wedding was everything I adore in weddings – close, personal, quirky and beautiful. This rockstar couple really knew how to wed in style. (pictured above)
One of my proudest moments of the year! My first big newspaper feature. To say I was a little bit excited to get the call about this is an understatement of epic proportions!
Richard from FX Films asked if he could make a little film about me. Now, while my day to day life is anything but glamorous (does spending 18 hours in front of a computer sound glam to you!?) I was more than excited to be involved…and to introduce him to Henry & Rachel of course!
