Win ♥ A Little Bit of Love – From Me to You

This contest is now closed


As you all no doubt will have seen by now, I had a very exciting announcement to make yesterday. After over a year of working 2 jobs I’ve finally got to the stage where I feel I can cut back on my ‘proper job’ and put more into Rock n Roll Bride. Anyway, as I said before, none of this would be possible without you. Seriously, without you brides (and grooms!) to be, photographers, bloggers, wedding vendors and wedding / pretty picture obsessives reading, submitting and generally loving my little blog, I’d be nothing and Rock n Roll Bride would be no more. So I wanted to give a little something back – LOVE!

I popped into my favourite shop Topshop yesterday and saw a pink version of one of my favourite necklaces. I had to buy it right away and I want to give it to one of you. To enter I want you to email me ( a picture including the words ‘Rock n Roll’. It can be a drawing, a painting, a photograph, a collage…and the words can be written, spelled out with body parts, super-imposed…anything, let your imagination run wild! Get creative and I’ll share the best ones on the blog next week. Be sure to include your own website/blog url (if you have one) with your entry so I can share some link love back.

Now, let’s be honest, I do actually have a lot of male readers too who may not be jumping up and down with excitement over a sparkly pink necklace. However I would love it if still wanted to take part in order to get your creative ideas shared on the blog. I’m taking to you male photographers here! I’m not only excited about giving something away but I’m dying to see what ideas you can all come up with… hey, I’m sure you cool dudes know at least one lovely lady who loves pink glitter!

My favourite picture will win this darling little bit of love – from me to you….and to get you started, here’s one my bestest friend Carly made for me…


…and my ridiculous attempt! haha…yes it’s rubbish – I’m sure you can do much better!


♥ You have until Thursday 18th March to get your entries in and the winner and my favourite images will be shared on Friday 19th March ♥

Big Love…

Big Bloggy Announcement

EEEEEeeeeeeek! I can hardly contain myself – so much so in fact that I am interrupting today’s regularly scheduled programming to tell you all my big news.

Over the last few months Rock n Roll Bride has literally blown the hell up (in a good way!) I’ve met so many amazing people, featured a plethora of gorgeous weddings and photo shoots, written for and been featured in some of the best magazines in the UK (and abroad – watch this space) and being glamorised in some awesome photo shoots. So it’s my absolute pleasure to let you know that my work have allowed me to go part time.

I’ll be honest, working full time job has been pretty damn hard over the last 6 months and I am brimming over with excitement at all the time I’m going to have to make Rock n Roll Bride BIGGER and BETTER for you, my darling readers. I’d also like to give a special shout out of love to all my sponsors, as without them I wouldn’t be in the position to take a cut on my full time wage. Go and give them some love by clicking on their graphics to the right of this post. There are some seriously awesome photographers and Rock n Roll wedding vendors for you to swoon over.

I. Love. You. All!

Finally, what am I going to do with all this extra time? I have ideas forming already and if you have any comments or suggestions then please feel free to drop me an email or comment below and let me know.

I Love…

♥ Grandma ♥

I’ve decided not to schedule any post today. My Grandma died on Saturday morning of Cancer and today we are all going over to Ireland for the funeral. Sad.

RIP Grandma, we all love you very very much.


Grandma & Grandad at our wedding April 2008. They were married 57 years.

Go on Then, Ask me Anything…


The Storque

On a morning of procrastination (or could it have been an evening? I loose track) I decided to give this formspring thing a go. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a new social networking site where you sign up and randoms (or in my case my lovely readers and fans) can ask me anything! I’m usually aghast at such self indulgence but I’ve actually really loved answering your burning questions – whether they be about Rock n Roll Bride, my personal life (oh yes), the potential of babies (arrgh!), blogging or about having pink hair! I

‘ve loved the questions so much in fact that I wanted to share some of my favourites here. If you want to ‘Ask Me Anything’ then shoot on over to formspring and question away, I will try and answer as many as I can. and if you like I’ll do another addition of my favourite questions again soon. So, what do ya wanna know?


♥ A lot of people seemed fascinated by my fuchsia locks – which is weird to me as having pink hair seems positively normal to me now. However, I aim to please…

How long have you been coloring your hair pink?

I first dyed my hair when I left school at 16 and went to college. I dabbled with a number of colours between then about 18 but I was always pink at heart and went back pink after our wedding in April 2008.

What color is your natural hair color

Very dark brown, almost black. You can see it here in our wedding photographs

2009 – The Year That Was {Part Two}

The Cimbo Limbo posts continue with part deux of the grand review of 2009. Brace yourselves for the July to December extravaganza people!

♥ Jenny & Johnny were way to stylish and way to cool to exclude from this list. If I had a face like hers I’d certainly be rocking the girl-hawk hair do. A Ring bearing ninja, the motorbike portraits and the tattoo-inspired illustration guestbook all add to the mad style


♥ Teneisha & Chris’ crazy-gorgeous LasVegas wedding was nothing short of epic. That dress!


♥ Something a bit different for Rock n Roll Bride here, but how could I resist those faces?
