Bridal Soup – The Launch
March 13, 2009
**Guest Blogging Update**
Not only am I now writing for
Savvy Scoop, but Steve at the brand spanking new Bridal Soup also asked me if I’d like to contribute to their site. Now as you probably already know, I do love a good old ramble about all things wedding, so I would have been rather foolish to turn himdown. Plus the site is a UK based site – I almost squealed with delight!
After reading so many of your survey responses saying you’d like to know more about me, the girl behind the blog, I suggested to Steve that I write a kind of ‘how to guide’ for the
Bridal Soup launch – i.e. how to plan a Rock n Roll wedding…but with your own personal flair (obviously!)
Every week I will be writing a new article, telling the story of our wedding with a few tips & tricks thrown in that I’ve gathered along the way. I do hope you’ll come see me over there, and will enjoy seeing an ever so slightly different side to Rock ‘n Roll Bride.
This week I’m all about our engagement story. Enjoy.

Why I Don’t Feature Many Engagement Shoots…
November 9, 2011
I'm often asked by wedding photographers what I look for in engagement shoots. You see, unlike many wedding blogs I actually feature very few pre-wedding shoots - in fact since January this year I've actually only featured 30 (out of approximately 780 blog posts in total!)
Coolest Engagement Shoot to Date – FACT: Ainsley & Sebastien
September 18, 2013
I'm pretty sure there is no couple in the world that could possibly come close to being as awesome as Ainsley and Sebastien. This is one of those engagement shoots that as soon as I saw it I was dying to see the wedding already, wondering what they could possibly do to top these photos.

Elsie & Jeremy’s Cozy, Christmas Engagement
December 10, 2010
Stand by for part two of the engagement session to end all engagement sessions. This is the ultimate cute and the kind of session I would have loved to have! You will adore this...
A Supermarket Engagement Shoot: Shing & Lynnette
September 26, 2012
Are you ready for something slightly weird and wonderful this morning? Well Shing & Lynnette's engagement shoot sure fits that bill! Based in Singapore, Raymond Phang Photography loves to shoot things a little bit wacky, and uses his pre-wedding shoot time with this clients to really push the boat out and have fun.
Game of Thrones Engagement Shoot: Karlee & Justin
February 17, 2013
Confession time: I've never seen Game of Thrones. I know, I know, my geek credentials should be thrown out of the window and I should hang my head in shame... But needless to say I know a good thing when I see it, and Karlee & Justin's engagement shoot certainly fits that bill.
Vancouver Island in British Columbia was the perfect spot for this DIY shoot - oh yes, I said DIY - the pair made their outfits themselves from scratch!
A NSFW, Super Intimate Engagement Shoot
February 21, 2018
I must preface this feature by letting you all know that this is an explicit photo session, and one that not everyone will be comfortable looking at. But in the spirit of Rock n Roll Bride being about self-expression and doing whatever is right for you and your partner, I really wanted to share it! There are a lot of NSFW photos featured below and while I personally think they're really tastefully done and the story behind them is one worth sharing, I understand that not everyone will agree.
An Engagement Shoot in the Nude
September 24, 2016
NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW NSFW
It goes without saying that if you don't want to see naked bodies then you probably shouldn't read this post! I think these are completely and utterly beautiful. Nikki and Mark wanted their engagement shoot to be intimate, sensual and artistic so decided to strip off and use it to connect back to the core of who they both are.
