This awesome punk inspired wedding was actually a faux-wedding – a photo shoot set up by stylist MMD Events, blogger Lauren of Every Last Detail and photographer’s Jeff & Anna Katherine of K&K Photography. They wanted to showcase some awesome alternative wedding styling and they certainly achieved that. I am totally smitten and almost a little upset that it isn’t a real wedding – this looks like the kind of party I want to go to!
“We put together this Punk inspiration shoot with the focus all around the *actual* definition of the word “punk”, courtesy of Every Last Detail’s Wedding Style Dictionary,” explained Lauren. “Pulling inspiration from the Dia de los Muertos (day of the dead), punk rock (of course), a little southern California “border-town-cool”, and rockabilly, we wanted the shoot to evoke what the actual “punk” lifestyle is. Our goal was to let brides know that punk can be pretty- not the cliche dark gothic look. We created a “punk” look that was pretty, colorful, and fun, just like the punk lifestyle is!”
The shoot took place at Tampa Armature Works Building in Florida and pretty much all the clothes were either thrifted or found very cheaply. This just goes to show that with a bit of imagination and creativity you CAN have a really Rock n Roll wedding without breaking the bank. I love this A LOT!

I love it when a great idea comes together – especially when in some small way the Rock n Roll Bride wedding blog can help! The fabulous (and she sooo is) Debs of DC Bouquets was browsing her favourite wedding blog (yes, yours truly’s) one day back in April 2010 and she came across a photographer local to her in South Yorkshire, Dolly Photography. She loved her style and so contacted her to see if she would be up for photographing some of her latest vintage bouquet designs.
“It was perfect timing as I was looking for some shots to use on my new website that would reflect the way my work has developed in the 12 months since I started Debbie Carlisle Bouquets – it’s my official business birthday on January 15th!” explained Debs. “The aim of the shoot was to produce something that showcased the vintage style of my jewellery and button bouquets and hair accessories but that also reflected the edgy alternative style of my brides. Dolly really ‘got’ what I was after and decided to go for a richer, more fashion-orientated look than the twee bridal product shoots you see so often. Stephanie Kipling from MAC did the make-up for the shoot, and I especially loved her decision to give my gorgeous brunette model Laura Charlton a more dramatic look, rather than play it safe with the more obvious ‘peaches and cream’ bridal tones.”

I was only sent these gorgeous images yesterday, but I simply had to share them with you before Christmas as they really got me in the mood! Put together by florist Emily Thompson Flowers and the fabulous photographer Levi Stolove, the aim of the shoot was to showcase some brand new, gorgeous and unique winter decor ideas. The location used was Emily’s beautiful shop in Brooklyn.
How stunning would a winter wedding decorated like this be? I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling super festive right now!
