Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk Wedding Ideas

View More:

The theme of this shoot was Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk with a little bit of high fashion thrown in for good measure.

“I think Rock n Roll gets boxed in too easily”, explained photographer Phi Porto. “I am a former vocalist of a band, tattooed from head to toe and I used to only wear all black t-shirts and shorts. I am now married, run a business and I love men’s fashion, particularly wooden bow ties. I don’t believe I am any less punk rock or Rock n Roll. I still have the same passion and wanted to exemplify that through this shoot.”

“I wanted to inspire Rock n Roll brides to be themselves and not be boxed in by any title. The models for this shoot have completely different lives but from the blue hair of the bride to the sailor jerry style tattoos on the groom, they are still Rock n Roll!”

A Tim Walker Inspired Wedding

Inspired by some of Tim Walker’s most famous photographs, this wedding shoot was put together by French photographer Floriane Caux, stylist Madame Coquelicot and florist Poppy Figue.

“As a huge fan of fashion photographer Tim Walker, I secretly dreamed about doing a wedding inspired by his incredible world”, explained Floriane. “We based the shoot on several pictures. We wanted to give a knowing wink to his great art and put it into a wedding day. It was a hard task, believe me!”

Woodland Nymph in a Black Wedding Dress

If you want to wear a black wedding dress but you’re more woodland nymph than gothic princess, you’re going to adore today’s photo session. Shot in the woods in the Pacific Northwest, the bride wears a show stopper black wedding gown by Claire La Faye.

“I had dreamed up a shoot on a mountaintop, post-hike and surrounded by amazing views, but thanks to a crazy flood warning, we had to make a last minute move to a nearby forest”, explained photographer Caitlyn of CJK Visuals. “The most amazing part was that we had a random black horse just walk up in the middle of our shoot! It couldn’t have been more perfect imperfect timing.”

‘Til Death do us Party

'Til Death do us Party Wedding Ideas (43)

If you like things a bit more dark ‘n moody than the usual bridal fare, then you’re going to love this wedding shoot!

Put together by Him and Her Events from Queensland, it features a black wedding cake, a deer skull above the ceremony arch and the coolest models ever! This is definitely not one for traditional brides.

“The theme of this shoot was ‘tll death do us party and sophisticated grunge”, they explained. “We wanted to embrace the rawness of the venue and create a style that inspired couples to make their own rules when it comes to their wedding day. We wanted to create a moody feel whilst still embracing bursts of colour and featuring cow skulls consistently throughout our styling.”

Skin Deep: A Bridal Shoot for Everyone

skin deep_rocknrollbride magazine (12)

If you’ve picked up a copy of issue 7, you will have seen the Skin Deep photo editorial that I partnered with Nova of the Nu Bride on. Today I wanted to share a few extra shots with you all that didn’t make the magazine spread (it turns out 8 pages just isn’t enough ha!)

The idea behind this shoot was simple, and it was sparked from an email that Nova received after an article she wrote for issue 4 about cultural representation in the wedding industry.

“As a woman of colour who loves weddings and all things pretty, the cover of [and your article inside] Rock n Roll Bride is just heart warming to see and it is encouraging. Of course, I want to see people that look like me in wedding magazines, and it is nice to see a blog and person I respect featured in the magazine. Kudos to Nova and Rock n Roll Bride. Keep up the good work!” – Heather

I’ve always wanted to showcase different wedding inspiration to the mainstream on Rock n Roll Bride. Whether that be with the style of weddings or the people getting married. Rock n Roll Bride magazine was the first nationally available UK print magazine to feature a same sex wedding inside, and I’m pretty sure no other wedding magazine would ever publish a photo session with a bride rocking a beard!

Simple Bridal Shoot with a Tattooed Bride

MODern Love_Kendra Elise Photography-4

This afternoon’s shoot is simple, but sometimes that’s really all you need. I love that this bridal session is JUST about the girl and how gorgeous she is. No bells and whistles, no OTT styling experience, no extra STUFF. It’s just her, being herself and looking totally amazing!

“My inspiration for this shoot was to shake things up and tell bride to be themselves”, said photographer Kendra Elise. “Not every bride falls into the long hair, long dress, nude lip colour, floral ball bouquet category and thank goodness for that. It is way more exciting to follow your own style than it is to follow the rules of getting married… because let’s be real there are no rules to falling in love, its just two people being themselves.

“I wanted to make images that were bold, fun, and absolutely stunning. I have had brides that have worried about not following the traditional rule book and I want to encourage them follow their own hearts. When you do your own thing it’s way more rewarding and truly satisfying!”
