New Contest – Tattoo Inspired Jewellery!

This Contest Is Now Closed

Don’t you just love free stuff? When I clapped eyes on Etsy seller, WickedMinky’s tattoo inspired jewellery I knew I had to have some and I knew they would make a fabulous prize!  So I bought myself a cuuute unicorn necklace and a swallow hair clip and I have to say they are absolutely gorgeous – so cute, so original, so rock n roll!  So maybe you wouldn’t actually wear these on your wedding day, but I know full well many of you may not be getting married for quite some time – so it’s nice to have a new toy to play with in between then and now right?

WickedMinky has donated this gorgeous little diamond necklace…OK so it’s not real diamonds, but I pretty much think a tattooed style diamond is the next best thing! (The amazing bird hairclip is mine I’m afraid..I also bought this unicorn…LOVE!)




I thought long and hard about the competition question for this contest, and actually The Husband came up with this one…I want to know What is your favourite inspiring wedding photograph ever and why?! I want to know which photograph you saw and just thought “wow!” The one you kept going back to, the one you immediately saved into your ‘wedding’ folder (I know we all have them!) It can be a photograph you found here on Rock n Roll Bride or it can be one you found elsewhere (please please please include photo credit with your entry if possible)

And you know what, just because I am aaalll about the sharing, this contest is not just open to Brides-to-be, if you’re a photographer and want to share your favourite ever wedding photograph please feel free! You can enter as many times as you like, but please – one entry/photograph per comment.

I’ve been going though my archives to find my favourite and I have found it really bloody hard to choose just one…so I’ve chickened out and gone for a selection just to get you started…

Because this Bride has some serious kick arse attitude + fabulous tattoos and sunnies

  1. This photo is taken from one of my favourite weddings ever. Shot by the amazing Chenin Boutwell – Jen and Patricks wedding is stunning! The vintage dress, the Prada shoes, the amazing venue, the intimate ceremony and the most adorable couple ever. The wedding images have been so inspirational for me as a photographer – what more can I say – i wish I could submit all the shots!

    that wedding was one of my faves tpo..just after your one favourite pic tho not the whole wedding.

  3. My favorite wedding photograph ever has to be this photo of Cecilia & Ivan on their day after/trash the dress photo shoot.
    This was one of the first wedding photographs i found when i started my wedding inspiration search and blog.

    The photograph was taken by one of my favorite photographers, Leigh Miller. I check her blog ( and website ( almost as much at i check yours Kat. Haha

    The reason why i love it so much?

    I love the fact that the bride and groom seem so blissfully unaware of all the chaotic traffic, noise, and people around them. Like in this moment when they could be distracted by all of their surrounding elements, all they care about is the love for each other. It is a picture i hope to recreate on the day after my wedding shoot. It just reminds me that when two people are in love, nothing else matters. You feel like the two of you are the only people we matter, everything else just fades away.

    heres a few….
    and the reason is because they all include their pets…because our four legged friends are very much our best friends and children…so why exclude them!!

    i love all of them….its inspiration because our four legged gals are very much a part of our family and in our wedding!!!

    There’s loads of photos I like but mainly I’m inspired with real weddings where the bride and groom (and guests) don’t take themselves too seriously and everyone looks like they’re having a good laugh. There’s no better comedy than with moustaches!

    Take a look (once featured on offbeat bride) –

    Maybe I’ll have the guts to do something this daft on my big day 🙂

    Oops hopefully this is okay. I only just found the credit for the moustache pic.
