Thursday Treats – 24th June 2010

June 24, 2010

I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week. I’ve been getting really over-excited this week about my new blog branding. I’ve been working on it with an amazing graphic designer (all will be revealed in due course) and holy moly, it is going to be goooorrrgeous! However I’ve also been stressing a little bit. I’ve got rather a lot of projects on the go at the moment (which, don’t get me wrong is awesome!) but I’m really looking forward to mid-July when I can have a little break.

I need to remember that I’m doing stuff that I love!! I can easily be a big old stresshead at times. I think I’m the most scared about my first public speaking venture at the Unveiled event on July 1st in London. I have been invited to go and speak about alternative wedding photography and eeeek I am cacking it…I’m looking forward to meeting a bunch of photographers that I know read this blog so please be nice to me. I’ll try not to stumble over my words too much! haha.

Anyway, here’s what else I’ve been lovin’ this past 7 days…

Final Thoughts…

♥ It’s that time of year again where wedding blog awards are flying about like nobody’s business. Now I haven’t quite decided if I care about ‘awards’  or not yet but nevertheless I thought I’d let you know about some of them so that you can go and vote for your favourite wedding blogs…and if you want to throw a little vote to Rock n Roll Bride into the mix, well I ain’t gonna stop you.

  • Aisle Dash allows you to to vote for your favourites in a number of categories
  • The The Wedding Channel even gave me a nice little button for you to click on to cast your votes. Sweet.

Nominate me for the Bridal Blog Awards!

The Photography Parlour held their first ‘shoot out’ in Bristol last week. The results are looking fantastic so far. Pop by on Monday for a round up and a load of AMAZING images from some of my favourite photographers who attended…sneaky peeeeeky
