I love to see contrast in images. Take this bridal session by
Carl Zoch for example – traditional wedding dress on a tattooed bride, dark hair with pink highlights, glamorous photographs taken in a derelict location…this is the stuff I love, and the is the stuff that really makes you stand out!
Thanks to Bertie for sending these my way, and Carl for letting me share his gorgeous work!

When wedding photographer Emily Johnson ran a trash the dress competition on Rock n Roll Bride, she hoped she might find some cool babes to shoot. And, oh boy, did she! One of the first winners was Ruth Power, a musician from New Zealand. Ruth wanted a shoot that reflected her love of music, showcased her personal style and took place in and around Brick Lane, London, which she now calls home.
Dolly Parton Plays Fairy Godmother
November 28, 2010
This session is way to awesome! When I opened the initial email from photographer Stephanie, I gasped. "Is that the real Dolly Parton?!"
"It sure is," came the response, "My lovely friend Rebecca was married last month in Gatlinburg, TN. Before her wedding, we did a very special photoshoot with her Aunt Dolly at a family home in Sevierville. Since Dolly is not only Rebecca’s aunt, but also her godmother, Rebecca had the idea to do a shoot where Dolly acts as her fairy godmother, who has come to get her ready for her big day. Here is the story for you to enjoy!"
A Simple Bridal Shoot on the Barcelona Hills
August 15, 2012
April in Barcelona. Teresa and film photographer Miguel Varona headed away from the city and up the hills to Montseny natural park to shoot a set of simple bridal portraits. "It wasn't the perfect day", wrote Miquel. "The sun didn't shine, but the atmosphere we had was perfect to recreate the special moments for a bride on her wedding day."
"Teresa wore a leather jacket a boots with her simple dress. 'Why not mix tradition and simplicity?' I thought. 'Why not show that tradition is compatible with personality?'"
A DIY Fashion Shoot Using The Rock n Roll Bride Planning Notebook!
August 8, 2011
A photo shoot featuring the Rock n Roll Bride planning notebooks!? Oh yes that's one sure-fired way to get my attention!
"We styled the whole shoot ourselves using items from eBay (and of course the Rock n Roll Bride notebook," photographer Jaye of Tux & Tales Photography told me. "We decided we would do a few styled shoots ourselves on a shoestring budget. I think it is a great way to show brides that they can have a fun and fab style with a little pocket change and a lot of elbow grease. I hope you enjoy my ultra-rad millinery. Picture me sitting on the living room floor, feathers flying everywhere whilst my cat tries to run off with the hat in his mouth every time I turn around to get another feather. The bouquet I made myself out of crepe paper. Boo (our model) is a burlesque performer so she did her own hair & make up!"
Bad Ass Smoke Bomb Bridals
May 14, 2015
Just you wait until you get your peepers around these utterly gorgeous bridal images. Arranged by florist Aspen of Wild Valley Flowers and photographer Erin Wallis from Vancouver Island, the shoot came about because Aspen was obsessed with doing something a little more raw and edgy than she was seeing in the usual bridal styled shoots.
Chi Chi Revolver’s Tattooed Bridal Shoot
March 31, 2011
"I was really inspired reading the winning entry to your Knot Couture dress competition recently," photographer Bethan of Haywood Jones Photography told me. "It was hard to picture how it would feel to be made so uncomfortable in a shop who were clearly disapproving of you, thinking we live in a properly modern society (!) until it happened to me last weekend (not because I have beautiful body art sadly, but much more because I was dressed a bit scruffily and went into a very posh art shop. They actually got another member of security to stand in the shop while me and my friend walked around!!) It suddenly became clear that you really can't judge a book by its cover and that even though the *mainstream* wedding industry is becoming more accepting of the *alternative* side of peoples wedding creativity and gorgeousness, there are still many blinkered people out there who wont look past stereotypes and make you feel less than worthy of their attention."
Shaun & Lulu’s Retro Styled Wedding Shoot
January 19, 2011
Shaun & Lulu Cash (hello, best names ever!?) had a wedding shoot in Adelaide with photographers Aila & Scott of White Wall Photography. Lulu wore custom couture gown by Eliza French.
As they started to shoot, it began to rain so they all ducked under a landing dock in the industrial location they were at - and it turned out to be the perfect backdrop for these shots!
A Vintage Shoot with Lucy Ledger Designs
August 23, 2010
If you're a regular reader of Rock n Roll Bride I'm sure you'll already be aware of the amazing Emma Case (she shot the image that I'm currently using as my blog header/my 'Punk Rock n Roll Bride' shoot) and Lucy Ledger Designs. Lucy makes gorgeously creative vintage-inspired stationary (I've also been lucky enough to feature her before as well as meet her in actual real life!) After Lucy saw Emma's work on Rock n Roll Bride she got in touch asking if they could get together to do a promotional shoot for her vintage stationary company. Hello!? Match made in vintage Rock n Roll heaven or what!?
