Last week Helen and I sat down to discuss how to choose your bridal party…
And this week I’ve shared a vlog of the behind the scenes action of shooting some editorials for Rock n Roll Bride magazine. I’m really enjoying vlogging actually so I hope you’ve been liking them as well!
Happy Valentine’s Day! With today being the international day of lurrrrrve, there’s probably no more fitting time to launch my new project so here we go!
I’m not ashamed to admit that I spent rather a lot of time on YouTube. I love watching my favourite YouTuber’s beauty tips, product reviews, vlogs, silly pranks and haul videos a little too much probably. However there does seem to be a distinct lack of decent wedding related content being made, so a little while ago I decided it was time to do something about it!
I’ve actually been wanting to start my own channel for YEARS but I’ve been too scared! I don’t really know how to edit videos, I’m not as comfortable on camera as I am with just writing, and I was worried about not having the time needed to commit to it.
Enter my babe Helen Anderson: Beauty guru, YouTube star, all round excellent person.
Over the past year we’ve become really great friends and when I told her I was considering starting a channel but I had no idea where to start she said “OMG, Kat, we should totally do one TOGETHER!” Helen’s actually in the middle of planning her own wedding too so she’s literally the perfect person to be partnering with!
We wanted a channel that encompassed both of our brands (hence why it’s not called the Rock n Roll Bride channel) and one that we could both add our own distinctive style and knowledge to. We also wanted it to potentially become a platform to invite other contributors to make videos for as well!
I AM SO EXCITED I COULD BURST.
Our current plan is to upload something once a week and we’ll be doing everything from hauls, lookbooks, unboxing videos, chats on different subjects, guest spots, DIYs and Q&A’s! In fact that’s exactly what we’ve started with today.
So head over to our channel, subscribe and leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you think and if you have any ideas for future videos.
When people ask me what makes a ‘Rock n Roll wedding’ I always respond by saying its not all about jumping out of airplanes… but that sometimes it is! Just check out Andrew and Ariel’s incredible wedding video if you don’t believe me!
It’s been a long time since I featured just a wedding video, but I think you’ll all agree this one is amazing enough to stand on its own. This high impact, adrenaline junkie’s dream is a proposal and wedding film all in one!
You are going to love watching this, it’s more like a high production value movie than a wedding video. But when the groom owns a production company, what do you expect!?
Here’s their story:
“Ariel and I were set up four years ago by two mutual friends and early in the first date I knew we were very similar”, said the groom, Andrew. “We had both lived in 5 cities and 5 years and constantly yearned for adventure. Quickly our dates turned into road trips, camping, back country flying and airshows, which only cemented the fact that I needed to officially make her my partner in crime.”
“So in January 2015, on our way to the mountains of North Carolina, I asked if she would help me get a shot for a film my production company was putting together. It was an odd request, since I am not the cameraman, but she did not think too far into it. It was freezing, so she was not thrilled to do a yoga scene; however she obliged. Quickly into the shoot, I told her that it was all a big joke and she stormed off. Luckily I was able to corral her back over in front of the camera, where I dropped to the knee and asked if she would marry me. She said yes and the adventure planning began.”
I am very, very bad at keeping secrets, especially exciting ones! So when Sophie and I planned months ago, to take Ronnie to Paris for her birthday, I was sure I would accidentally blab. BUT I DIDN’T AND I’M SO PROUD.
We had the most wonderful two days in the City of Light (as you will have seen if you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat), and I decided to make a little video to bring you along with us. We meandered around the beautiful cobbled streets (Monmartre is my favourite!) marvelling at the architecture, eating croissants, crepes and macarons, and spilling Prosecco nearly everytime we ordered some!
When my sister Rachel and her now husband Jamie booked Camera Hannah to shoot their wedding on July 2nd, they knew they also wanted her to make them a video. Its rare to find a wedding photographer that offers both, so they really lucked out! Wedding photos are so special, but there’s just something extra super duper amazing about being able to watch some of those wedding moments back.
Hannah sent over the finished film this morning and I just could not wait to share it with you – so I’m doing so right away! Now I might be biased, but this might just be the most beautiful wedding video I’ve ever seen!
