♥ 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.

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?

2009 – The Year That Was {Part One}

As is customary at this time of year, I wanted to take some time to look back over the last 12 months and share with you some of my most favourite weddings, photo shoots and features. I think you’ll be hard pushed to not find something that makes you go ‘ooooh’ amongst this lot. Enjoy a-reminiscing! I’ll be back tomorrow with part 2 (there’s too much to narrow it down to just one post!) I’m also taking this slow blog-time (I like to refer to it as ‘Crimbo Limbo’ (!) to ponder my ideas and plans for Rock n Roll Bride in 2010. I’ll try and share my musings for the year ahead with you soon and would love for you to let me know what you think. It’s all about you dear reader after all…

♥ 2009 started off with a bang, with this ridiculously fabulous ‘Chicken Man and the Naked Chick’ shoot and wedding. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this before, you certainly won’t be disappointed

♥ This magician and his wife’s 1920s vintage styling was resoundly popular all over blog-land and may have even started the fake moustache revolution…it was certainly one of the first where I saw them used anyway.

♥ More vintage loving came my way with this ‘Vintage Snow’ wedding – complete with the bride looking every bit the glamorous lady in her circa 1947 Dior suit

Rubbered & Brightly Coloured

Please forgive me procrastination as I bring to you this random but overtly lovely post all about my favourite prop – the humble balloon! I should be doing some proper writing right now (deadline booo!) but I got all distracted by all this rubbered and brightly coloured goodness whilst on my internet travels today.
