Two Year Marriversary Love

On the 12th April 2007 my boyfriend and I headed to the river for a chilled out 5 year anniversary picnic which ended with him asking me to marry him.

On the 12th April 2009 my husband & I headed to Brighton to celebrate our first year of marriage at the fancy pants Grand Hotel.

On the 12th April 2010 a long haired husband and a pink haired wife (oh how things change!) will be having a quiet night together. No mess. No fuss. No bells. No whistles. Dinner, Alice in Wonderland at the cinema and love.

The past 2 years haven’t always been easy and haven’t always been blissful but today the computers will be switched off and we’ll just be together. That’s what’s important and that’s how we want to celebrate. Love rocks and I love my husband.

A Rare Day Off for the Rock n Roll Bride!

Today is my birthday so I’m taking a rare (and I hope you’ll agree – well deserved) day off from blogging, emails, twitter… all that jazz (well I may pop by twitter – let’s not be rash with our decisions here.) I’ll be back and raring to go tomorrow – but until then, here’s a little sneaky peek of what you can expect on my return…shaaaweeeet huh?!

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

This contest is now closed

lovelovelove

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 (kat@rocknrollbride.com) 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…

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.
