Hello! I’ve just popped up from my editing hole to say “Yay its Thursday Treats time!” The next issue of the magazine goes to print in a few days so I’m currently locked down and getting serious on checking proofs, dotting i’s, crossing t’s and making sure it’s as perfect as it possibly can be. WISH ME LUCK!
People have been begging me for a sneak peek of the new design too so here’s a little teeny one for you. Doesn’t it look amazing?! That Shauna sure is talented! I can’t wait to finally hold it in my hands.
If you haven’t already, you can pre-order a copy now. Issue 4 is released on September 3rd, shipping to the UK is free and we have less than 3/4 the stock allocated for online orders remaining! If you struggled to find one in any shops near you, or you don’t live in the UK, order one now or don’t you dare come crying to me when they’re all sold out!
I also joined Periscope this week. Are you on it? I did my first broadcast this afternoon (you can watch it here) where I showed people my office, answered a ton of questions AND quickly showed one of the real wedding spreads in the magazine! It was so weird and fun! I usually groan when there’s a new social media to get to grips with, but this seems like it’s going to be super entertaining. Download the app and follow me (my name is RocknRollBride of course).

Don’t worry I haven’t booked in for a nose job… I’m talking about giving Rock n Roll Bride a facelift!
The blog has had the same logo and branding for over five years now, and with the magazine taking off like it is I felt it was high time for for a spot of TLC. Shauna and I have been going back and forth on some ideas and believe me when I say it is looking utterly incredible! Watch out wedding magazine world, Rock n Roll Bride is coming for ya!
Things are also chugging on excellently with the next issue of the magazine by the way. Remember, its’s on sale September 3rd and you can pre-order a copy right now. Over half of the stock we have allocated for online orders have already sold so if you’d like to snap one up and have it shipped directly to you, order it today!
Okey doke, here’s a round up of all the internetty things that I’ve been loving this week:
♥ A confession – I hate Pinterest!
♥ Retro inspired bridal inspiration
♥ The advice I wish I was given when I cancelled my wedding
♥ Dreamy bohemian wedding ideas
♥ Relaxed forest wedding
♥ Hobbit-mad couple transform their garden into Middle Earth to say ‘I do’
♥ This bride is totally owning her lace jumpsuit!
♥ Why everyone is talking about this very special ring bearer
♥ Vera Wang’s spring 2016 bridal campaign is all kinds of epic! Black wedding dress anybody!?
As you read this I’m on route to Dublin where I’ve been invited on to Ireland AM, Ireland’s version of This Morning, tomorrow! I’ll be on around 8.15am so Irish babes, set those alarms!
It’s been a busy week. On Tuesday Gareth and I popped down to the Photography Farm (it’s fast becoming my home away from home!) to model for Sam Hurd‘s workshop for wedding photographers. Sam is a FANTASTIC photographer from the US so when we were asked to do it I jumped at the chance without even consulting Gareth – whoops! Luckily he was as up for it as I was. He’s getting to be a right poser you know (not quite as bad as me but that would be hard..!) Shooting with Sam was the most fun and I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos he took!
Then Wednesday I was on MOH duties again going to see more potential wedding venues with my sister. It’s SO FUN seeing how their wedding ideas are coming together already. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is going to be the coolest wedding ever. I’ve been spending all my extra time firing off enquiries to caterers, florists, photographers and videographers… believe me when I say I am very organised about this shit – ha!
I hope you’ve had a good week, take a load off and enjoy some Thursday Treats whydontya!?
