Here’s where you might have spied my mug over the last 30 days. As always, thanks for all the support from the fabulous British (oh and Australian woohoo) press this month!
This month I addressed a slightly touchy subject, but one that I felt really needed to mentioned – the rise of copycats in the wedding industry and what to do if you feel your ideas are being plagiarised.
Oh yeah, I take no prisoners.
Photo Professional were also kind enough to run a FIVE page (!) article about my girl Jasmine Star and the workshop we’re organising in London on the 20th July. It’s getting so close now and oh boy am I excited!

Yeah people keep saying it and it’s really annoying…but seriously…it’s the end of May already?! This year is going fast. Either way, here’s the list of places you can see Rock n Roll Bride in the press this month. Hurrah!
This month I wrote about the importance of making an impact with your branding in order to attract the right kind of client as a wedding photographer. I profiled the fabulous Image is Found, who also just so happened to be in the London this month for a workshop…and I got to meet them in actual real life!

The fabulous Vintage Life Magazine must have liked what I did last issue, because they’ve only gone and asked me to make my article a regular feature! Each issue I’ll be sharing one of my favourite vintage style real weddings. This month I selected Elsie & Nick’s killer festival style wedding….complete with a piano in the woods. I die.

Wow. I love April. This month my little blog and I have had a record amount of press coverage…internationally as well as locally. Blown away.
I was more than a little bit thrilled when Photo Professional magazine not only agreed to me writing my latest article on the power of working together with your traditional ‘rivals’ rather than fighting against them, but that they let me pimp out the photographs from The Big Fat Wedding Blogger’s Photo Shoot to illustrate…oh and gave me 3 pages rather than my usual 2 – yeeey!

I was asked by the editor of Perfect Wedding if I’d like to contribute to an article they were writing on vintage bridal fashion. I jumped at the chance and listed some of my top tips for buying vintage pieces for your wedding.

The Sunday Times, Style Magazine (Ireland)
Yes I was in The Sunday Times – even my Dad was impressed with this one! A journalist working for the Irish edition of the newspaper got in touch and asked if I could help her with her research into vintage weddings and dresses. There were quotes from me throughout the article. I did a little squeal when it landed on my doorstep this month.
I took a slightly different approach to this month’s article in the new look Photo Pro (renamed Photo Professional) Magazine. I used the blogging example of my girls at Made u Look Photography but made the article more of a selection of tips and tricks to make your photography blog really stand out. Do you like the new magazine layout and my new style of article?
Little hats, birdcage veils, flower wreaths, crowns…there’s more to bridal headwear than the traditional veil you know. This month I shared some of my favourite ‘crowning glory’ moments with the readers of WEDDING Magazine.
It’s been a busy old month press-wise again for me and my little blog. It still blows my mind that people want to write about me…or have me write for…their magazines. I love my job I do! Huge thanks to all the publications that helped to spread the Rock n Roll Bride message this month.
I have a regular column for this fabulous magazine and this month I tackled the tricky issue of whether or not to watermark your images when posting them online. This is a massive subject for photographers and one that often causes controversy, but it was something I had wanted to discuss for a long time. Big thanks to all the photographers and other bloggers (big up The Wedding Chicks!) for helping me with my research, and mucho love to Photo Pro for not only letting me do so but for giving me FOUR pages…my longest article for them yet. Woohoo!
I was asked by Vintage Life magazine if I’d like to contribute some of my favourite vintage weddings to their magazine…and of course I jumped at the chance to show of my reader’s weddings! Polly & Stuart’s wartime wedding is the first of many so keep your eyes peeled for this fabulous new magazine (which from this month is available in WH Smiths. Hurrah!)
Yep, 2011 is continuing to get better and better (my friend Gala is calling 2011, “two thousand and heaven” – I think that’s quite accurate actually!) Here’s a snippet of my press for the month of January. I’ve decided for future to just do a quick round up of most of my press on the last Saturday of every month as I want to save more blog space for all the awesome real-wedding I’m being sent!
All magazines are available in the shops right now.
This month I talk to Californian photographer Amelia Lyon about her awesome Lyon Shop training courses for budding wedding photographers.
I wanted to share with the readers of WEDDING Magazine some of my favourite, unique bouquet ideas. There’s much more out there than roses don’t you know! There’s a special mention in this article to one of my utter favourite bouquet creators, Princess Lasertron.
The Cornwall based magazine asked me to write an article about my favourite ways to rock your wedding. Check out the HUGE photo they used of me. Scary…but kinda cool!
Wedding Ideas Magazine
I ran a full feature on this a last week as I’m pretty chuffed that they have now featured our wedding in their mag twice!
I was contacted to help out with an article on unique wedding ideas. I spoke about some cool venue and reception ideas. They even used a photo of me (to illustrate the wackiness I guess!)
