2012 has been, without a shadow of a doubt, the best year of my life. Words can’t describe how immensely thankful I am for every amazing opportunity I’ve been given because of this blog and YOU LOT. So as this incredible 366 days draws to a close and we hurtle towards 2013 with the utmost vigour, I wanted to share with you some of the year’s highlights as well as some of my favourite weddings and blog posts.
What were your favourite weddings of the last year?
And I’ve got a bit of top secret exclusiveness for you too, dear reader. Rock n Roll Bride is getting a facelift on January 8th! Shauna, Gareth & I (OK so mainly Shuana & Gareth – but I’ve been overseeing!) have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to create something pretty darn special. I can’t WAIT to share it with you all! Raising the bar again? Oh yes we are!
So here we go, 2012 in review from January to June…
We launched the Green Room on January 3rd – something I’d been dreaming about doing for a long time. I really wanted to be able to use my blog to share some of my businessy tips, tricks and advice that I’d picked up over the years and was thrilled when Gareth came up with the concept of effectively splitting the blog in two. My work load basically doubled but, honestly, it’s been one of the most rewarding things I write about. The feedback from you guys has been nothing short of incredible.

Gareth & I started the month by being roped into a pretty epic ‘wedding circus’ shoot by Sassy & Jo. Gareth even got on a horse! It was bloody freeeezing but so worth it. I looked like I’d lost about 10lbs in Jo’s amazing corsets.
Lisa, David & I headed over to Las Vegas for WPPI and to hook up with Gala & Shauna for fun, frolics, mischief and of course and epic photo shoot! I don’t want to sound over-dramatic but this was a pretty life changing trip for me. I rediscovered why travel and new experiences are so good for the soul and made a pact with myself to do a hell of a lot more of it!
