I am super excited today as not only have I got a plethora of amazing stuff to share with you in the next few days but myself and David have decided the winners of the free wedding photography contest! I will be announcing the winners on here as soon as I have told them!
I really loved featuring Emily’s first inspiration board on Monday and it seemed you guys did too..so hold on to your hats, here comes round two..
Hello again! Today’s board was inspired by the tattooed bride in the top left corner – I love the juxtaposition between her tattoo and her pearls, and tried to strike the same balance in my board. This wedding is elegant and restrained, vintage and at the same time sort of modern, I think. Try a fabulously feathered headband for the bride, a dark suit and skinny tie for the groom, unexpectedly mod calligraphy on envelopes, and spiky echinacea in square mirrored boxes as centerpieces. A classic car borrowed from a friend or auto club is a stylish – and inexpensive! – getaway.

Lisa was actually the second shooter for Brett Buchanan for this wedding, this couple have been seriously lucky to have Lisa as a second photographer – wow!

Ever feel like your not ‘out there’ enough with your wedding planning? Feeling bad for being to traditional and like a fraud as a ‘rock n roll bride’ for wearing a white dress or getting married in a church (as we did by the way!)
Well stop beating yourself up and head over to my second home, the very fabulous Savvy Scoop for today’s ‘traditional meets rock n roll’ guest post.

Happy Monday people! There are a lot of very exciting things happening at Rock n Roll Bride HQ this week starting with my very first guest blogger. This week – today, Wednesday and Friday, I will be featuring some gorgeous Rock n Roll inspiration boards from the fabulous Emily from Peach & Pearl, designed especially for us.
Also, while I’m at it, a quick reminder that you have 2 days left to get me your final entries for the free wedding photography contest. We have had some absolutely aaaamazing entries so far and it is proving very difficult to choose the winners! The winners will be notified sometime this week! woohoo
OK, so on with the inspiration..take it away Emily!
I’m thrilled to be here this week! I post an inspiration board every Monday on Peach & Pearl, and when I was invited on to guest post, I thought it would be fun to try and combine Kat’s style (in her words: “pink, tattoos, monochrome, vintage, the Wizard of Oz, and brightly colored stuff”) with my more classic and sweet style. It was a fabulous challenge and I hope you’ll enjoy the results!Ngoc Minh Ngo) in the top left corner. From there, I put the bride in a bright royal blue dress and the groom in a slim-fitting white dinner jacket. The slightly-Spanish vibe comes through in the citrus centerpieces, the fruity drinks, and the bright linens – with those colors popping on your tables, what other decor do you need? Hang cut paper garlands in doorways and line outdoor walkways and ledges with tealights or punched luminarias to create inexpensive atmosphere.
