Anniversary Love – A Vintage, Park Picnic
June 30, 2010
Oh I love featuring anniversary shoots. I get excited and all mushy to see how in love you guys are even after a few years of marriage…and of course they mean that there is no end to the inspiration I can give you – so don’t stop reading Rock n Roll Bride just because you’re married you hear!?
Sarah & Ben, have been married for 4 years and wanted to do a vintage rustic themed anniversary shoot in a park. They had a sweet lazy picnic going with apples and antique coca cola bottles where they could lie in the grass and enjoy the sun. They also climbed a tree together, wrote love letters on a typewriter, and listened to records. Their outfits were handpicked from estate sales, thrift stores, and
Etsy and the props they brought – a portable record player, records, a birdcage, and a typewriter – were also from thrift & antique stores or passed down from family members.
Thanks to photographer Jenn for sharing these today. Keep those anniversary sessions coming. I (and you) love them!

Colourful 10th Anniversary Party
Jade + Matthew Take Pictures
June 7, 2016
Today's feature isn't a wedding, but I think when you see these photos you'll understand why I've made an exception to share them! Jade and Matthew's 10th anniversary party was held at a friend's house. It was a completely DIY event. The couple are wedding photographers, so they even shot it themselves!

This midnight picnic shoot makes me smile inside. The shoot took place on the couple's 3 year anniversary and as photographer Holly explains, it's "a visual display of the idealistic, unrealistic, visionary, dreamy, Utopian, whimsical, starry-eyed love." I like that!
The dress came from Koren Town in LA, her wonderful fut coat was from Forever 21 and her headpieces were by Audrey K and Vintage Dreams.

From Sunrise to Sunset – A Day in the Life of Us: Joelle & Jake
February 25, 2013
Joelle & Jake's shoot was described to me as "intimate, organic and unique" by their photographer Anna Jones and I really couldn't say it any better. Somewhere between a boudoir, a day in the life and a wedding portrait shoot, these images that took my breath away as soon as I saw them. Perfectly honest and stunningly peaceful. They are just utterly, utterly beautiful and everything a couple shoot should be.

A Mythical Gothic Anniversary Shoot: Emma & Owen
May 23, 2012
After their wedding Emma & Owen decided they wanted to do a shoot that really showed off their personalities and personal style. They hadn't had any portraits taken at their wedding eight years ago, and so they contacted photographer Jess Petrie to ask if she'd like to shoot them.
Owen told us all about their relationship and why they wanted to do this shoot. "I met Emma when I was fifteen and we’ve been together ever since. It really was love at first sight – that’s probably the only way it could have worked as I was too shy to speak to her at the time! As a teenager with a paper round, I had to save up for an engagement ring; I picked a ring at a jewellers and went there every week to add to the down-payment on a tiny gold ring with two small diamonds holding a larger third in the middle. I’d literally go there some weeks with 82 pence in copper coins to add to the pot, but I paid it off eventually and took it home! We went to sixth form and then University together, Emma to study Fine Art Painting and me to study Film & Video Production. Nowadays, Emma is a successful portrait painter and I run a film production company and am about to direct my first feature film."
Alternative Woodland Anniversary Shoot: Sally & Mark
December 1, 2012
Sally & Mark might be a little familiar because I featured their amazing blue burlesque wedding (on a £900 budget!) in December last year. Well, as their first anniversary rolled round, the couple wanted something to commemorate, and so called up their wedding photographer Jade of GASP Photography to ask if she'd do the honours.

You say that you first spotted me walking down the stairs at the dive bar we both used to frequent. I was just 16, you were 21. You assure me you can remember exactly what I was wearing - a sheer pink top with a denim pencil skirt, and freshly dyed pink tips at the bottom of my hair. "That's the girl I'm going to marry" you turned to your friend and said. "Yeah right", I replied when you told me this story, years later. But that is just so typically Gareth - you're just always right about everything.
