With 15 years experience as a fashion stylist, Zoe Lem, who pioneered the concept of dressing to suit your shape, has now turned her hand to wedding fashion and design. Zoe was controversially revealed by The Daily Mail in 2006 as the brains behind Trinny and Susannah’s ground breaking show ‘What Not to Wear’ so as you can imagine, she knows her stuff! Zoe’s passion for style and weddings (she used to run the iconic My Sugarland wedding boutique in London) has converged to create the brand, Zoe Lem – Vintage Shape Mistress and to launch Zoe Lem’s Vintage Wedding Fair.
You might remember that I’ve featured the fabulous For Her & For Him before. Experts in inexpensive but beautiful bridesmaids dresses, I’m a big fan of their quirky style ideas and the vintage influence that runs through many of their gowns. So as you can well imagine, I was more than thrilled when they got back in touch with me to share their latest and greatest special offer!
With their last promotion being such a success, and to show their thanks, they’ve decided to launch a brand new and even more attractive promotion on their beautiful bridesmaid dresses.
They would like to offer all readers of Rock n Roll Bride a whopping 10% off when you purchase two dresses, 20% off when you purchase between three and five dresses or a mahhuusive 25% off if you purchase six or more – this is the perfect offer for those of you with large wedding parties!
They will also offer free customised sizing options on every dress ordered and free FedEX delivery WORLDWIDE (!) If you ‘like’ them on facebook (once you do you will receive a special code) you’ll also qualify for a further $10 off your order. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL – if you write a review & share some photos with them once you’ve received your order you’ll get $20 cash back! All of these amazing offers can be claimed at once so what are you waiting for?!
These incredible offers are all valid until November 30th 2012.
When was your last holiday? Being in the height of Summer I’d imagine that many of you lucky ducks will have been jetting off to warmer climes recently… well, unless of course you work in the wedding industry – May to August is what I like to affectionately refer to as ‘silly season’. Everyone’s getting married, wedding suppliers are running around like headless chickens and wedding bloggers are tied to their computers trying to keep up with blogging about all of it! It’s mental, but totally totally awesome.
However it gets to the end of August and I start to feel a little jaded. I need a break… a proper one. I need to get away from my computer, away from meetings in the busy, sweaty sticky capital (London I love ya but your tubes ain’t half gross when it’s 30 degrees out) and to unwind. Which is why I’m thrilled to introduce FlipKey Vacation Rentals to you today. A mini break here? YES PLEASE.
I’ve known wedding photographer Adam Bronkhorst of Viva Wedding Photography for a few years now and I have to say that he and his work makes me incredibly happy. Why? Well…
♥ He’s a master of flash, meaning even the darkest of weddings will be shot in the best way. He loves to experiment with different lighting techniques to produce some really unique imagery.
♥ His style is unapologetically upbeat and modern.
♥ He’s published two books – Lo-fi Photo Fun! & Sn-app Shots – and I’m in one of them!
♥ He’s just rebranded and his website now looks equally as awesome as his photography.
♥ He is obsessed with photo booths and styles each and every one uniquely for every wedding. My recent favourties have been pirate, superhero and Jubilee themed!
♥ He always has a lovely smiley face and is passionate about his clients, his friends and being the very best artist he can be.
♥ He likes to party just as much as I do…

A lover of the wacky, the offbeat and the Rock n Roll, I’m delighted to introduce DC based wedding photographer Maggie Winters to you today. She also has hot pink hair so I love her immediately.
“Hey Rock n Roll Brides I’m Maggie”, she writes. “I’m really short and my genes got my hair color wrong. I live with my partner and our kittycat Lucyfur right outside DC. I’ve been shooting ever since I can remember. I shot my first wedding when I was 16, then dabbled in other areas of photography, and realized there’s nothing like capturing people in love. Awesome people in love. I photograph weddings and elopements in DC, NYC and everywhere in between.”
