Although I officially started Rock n Roll Bride in 2007 when I
was planning our wedding, it is really only in the last few months that it has gained momentum and really taken off. I was going though my back catalogue today and I realised that I have posted so many amazing weddings that may not ever be seen my new readers. This is a travesty indeed as some of these amazing weddings don’t even have any comments. So behold – my top 20 old posts that you simple must go back and see…
♥ We’ve all heard of Max Wanger right? he certainly lights up blogland daily! I was first introduced to his work by his girlfriend back in November 2008 when she sent me
this amazing first shoot. From then on in I (and every other blogger it would seem!) was hooked
♥ It was the rockabilly style and the pink hair that did it for me. In fact it was this very bride who unknowingly convinced me to go back to pink!
♥ This was the wedding that made me fall in love with the whole outdoory, DIY ‘thing’. Before seeing this wedding I would never have thought getting married outside could be so beautiful (and sparkly!)
♥ This was the photo that did it for me. So much joy and happiness!
♥ I literally was green with envy and I went and bought that Mac eyeliner the very next day (I still wear it regularly!)
♥ I think it was her expression that I was drawn too – somber almost. I don’t know why but I was, and still am, totally transfixed by her.
♥ I wasn’t sure when I first saw these if this was a modern wedding or and one from the 1970’s. It turns out it was a recent wedding and that this couple were just.that.awesome. Hell they got married on a boat!
♥ He dressed up in a chicken suit and she got naked. End of.
♥ I was instantly jealous of her ink.
♥ I found this wedding whilst planning ours and wished I was crafty enough to have a wedding so awesome. I even bought a similar cake topper as they had (which never arrived..grr!)
♥ I knew Rhiannon from a wedding forum whilst we were both planning. I was instantly jealous of her wedding when she posted it (I see a recurring pattern here – what’s with my wedding envy!?) We have since become really good friends and she even designed my website header and graphics! we have got drunk together a number of times. She rocks.
♥ I am still smitten with this wedding and this couple. I was so crazy about them in fact that I posted their engagements, their wedding and their portraits.
♥ I discovered The Rockstar Diaries when a reader sent me in a link to their wedding. Naomi & Josh’s blog is still one of my daily reads.
♥ He is a magician. She is his assistant. They got married and had an awesome 1920’s style shindig.
♥ They eloped in Vegas. Without Elvis.
♥ My favourite EVER dress. For real.
♥ Marie Antoinette styling with pink hair. The couple even made everything themselves!
♥ Simple and beautiful with an almost European feel. Love at first sight.
♥ An Alice in Wonderland themed wedding before Tim Burton remade the film and it became popular again.
♥ Dressing up for cupcakes in NYC! Kelly even sent me a beeeeautiful vintage hat from her Etsy store as a thank you for the post.
Well? What do you think?

Retro British Street Party Wedding: Elisa & Ricky
October 29, 2013
Elisa and Ricky were married only a year after meeting in a bar at the end of the Olympic Opening Ceremony (on 27th of July 2012). Although she wasn't interested at first, and after turning down his number a bunch of times, she eventually agreed to go out with him about two weeks later! "After six hours of talking that night, I decided I would give him a go and It’s been a whirl wind romance since. I still can't believe it", she explained.
Retro Cartoon Wedding: Daisy & Leigh
Tux and Tales
August 20, 2013
Daisy and Leigh's retro wedding themed came about because they knew they wanted anything but a traditional day. "We decided to go down the retro/ vintage theme, but I also didn't want it to be the typical ‘vintage’ wedding style that is everywhere at the moment!" Daisy wrote. "I also didn't want a traditional sit-down meal so we had afternoon tea complete with cocktails served in teapots. The wedding eventually became about all of the things we love from the 1950s to the 1990s! I wanted our wedding to be really unpretentious and for everyone to have lots of fun."
Retro Kitsch British Wedding: Lynne & Stevie
November 23, 2012
We may be well on our way towards the depths of winter (waah!) but I thought I'd just cling onto those hazy Summer days for just a little while longer by sharing Lynne & Stevie's June wedding. The quintessentially British vibe perfectly accompanied by vintage and retro touches was just too good to pass up.
DIY Day of the Dead, Lobster and Rabbit-Themed Romantic Garden Party Wedding in London: Kirsty & Steve
We Heart Pictures
August 5, 2013
When Kirsty and Steve planned to marry they knew they wanted tradition to play no part in it. This started with their surname. Instead of keeping their own names or one of them taking the other's they decided to merge their two names to create a brand new one. So Kirsty Foster and Steve Pate became Mr & Mrs Fate!
When it came to capturing their wedding day they wanted photos that were bright, romantic, playful, with a little kooky edge. They found We Heart Pictures through Rock n Roll Bride and couldn't have been happier with their choice! They wedding took place on June 7th at Hoxton Hall, London.
Retro Bowling Club Wedding with an Ocean View: Nat & Sam
November 30, 2012
The retro wedding of Nat & Sam is perfect... literally perfect. I just know you're going to go nuts for Nat's nostalgic bridal style, their ocean view ceremony and the reception that looks like it stepped right out of the past.
"Our ceremony was at Burrows Park Headland, Sydney", explained Nat. "The ceremony spot was a beautiful cliff edge looking over the Pacific Ocean and located right next to the Bowling Club where we had the reception. We loved that the only way to get to it was via a very long, natural aisle sheltered on one side by trees, which we decorated with Chinese lanterns. For our reception we chose Clovelly Bowling Club. It was cheap as chips to hire, the drinks prices stuck in the 1980s, and the tacky bright blue carpet and a strange old picture of the Queen flanked by two Aussie flags above a stage which houses an ancient piano (which we tuned up and used!) were AWESOME! As soon as we walked in we looked at each other and said 'Yes!'. Oh, and it had 180 degree ocean views!"
