A little sneak of a cupcake on my new sleeve tattoo using the Retro Camera ap for Android – both of which I heart!
Wednesday 11th August 2010, a carefully selected bar in Central London (for it’s cocktail making ability) will play host to a large rabble of Rock n Roll Bride readers and a fabulous bunch of photographers, bloggers, make up artists, wedding planners and in fact any kind of wedding professional you can think of! The invite is open to all wedding industry professionals (this one is not really for brides to be – us hard working wedding people need a night off!)
There will be cocktails (lots of cocktails) cupcakes (oh yes!) and sparkle a-plenty but need
you to come too! Without you guys I will be sat there on my own…wearing a tiara looking like a sad pink haired loner. Don’t make that happen to me – come party with me instead!
Over the last year the Rock n Roll Bride meets have got steadily bigger and better (and more messy usually) and I want this one to be the best yet! Although sparkle and your best dancing shoes are required, the evening will be a casual one. I’ll be there from about 8pm (start without me if I’m late like last time!) and the evening will just go with the flow. Apart from the time and place nothing is planned so if you just fancy popping down for a drink and to meet some fab people then do it. None of that pretentious networking rubbish I promise…and I (probably) won’t stand up and do an awkward speech.
If you want to come, drop me an email to with your name and who you are/what you do (photographer, make up artist etc) firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll then email you back the venue info. I’ll see you there! WOOOHOOO I’m so excited!!!!!!
ps something else to get ridiculously excited about – I am launching the BIGGEST EVER giveaway on the blog next week. Seriously, I have a rather large swag bag of Rock n Roll bootie and I want to give it away to one of you! Don’t miss it.

A Sunday Kind of Love – Unveiled
July 4, 2010
This weeks Sunday Love nomination has to go to all the lovely people who organised and attended the Unveiled photography event on Thursday. I was asked to speak at the event, hosted by The British Journal of Photography (for those of you that don't know, the BJP is the oldest and one of the most internationally renowned photography magazines in the UK - eeek) and sponsored by Hasselblad. No pressure then!

Having a Festival Wedding? Check out FabulousWedFest!
My Fabulous Life
February 9, 2013
Are you having a festival themed wedding? 2012 was certainly the year that this idea exploded into weddings, but it would appear it isn't going anywhere during 2013 either!
This festival-inspired wedding shoot was pulled together by wedding photographer Becky Joiner and Muddifords Court in order to promote their latest venture, the FabulousWedFest wedding show which is taking place on 16th March. Shot in and around the venue itself, and using suppliers that will actually be exhibiting at the fair, this shoot shows that festival weddings are far from over. It's clearly a theme that we're going to see gaining popularity in 2013 and beyond. Wellies at the ready guys!
The Designer Wedding Show February 2010 ♥ Highlights
February 16, 2010
few weeks ago I was offered a couple of tickets to attend The Designer Wedding show in Battersea, London. The event took place from last Friday - Sunday so my friend (and photographer extraordinaire) David McNeil and I thought we'd go check it out in the hope to be inspired, have fun and to actually real-life-meet some of the amazing UK wedding vendors that we've met online. Today I want to share a few of my highlights and photographs from the event so you can see what fun we had. I definitely did and I even got to meet a bunch of Rock n Roll Bride readers. It was the first event I've been to where I actually got recognised which was surreal but certainly nice! Here are some of my (and David's) faves.
♥ Magpie Vintage undoubtedly had one of the busiest stalls of the day. I've wanted to meet Lisa & Tania for ages now and The Designer Wedding show proved to be the perfect opportunity. I wondered up to their stand hoping they'd spot the pink hair and know it was me and as soon as I was within 20 feet I was greeted by Lisa with a massive hug and an "oh my god you look so young!" (haha way to suck up Lisa - you go girl!) and " oh you simply must wear this necklace!" She the proceeded to drape a beautiful powder pink and teal green reclaimed vintage gem around my neck which I was lucky enough to walk around with all day (and yes I did remember to return it after!)
♥ Abbey of Sugalily Stationary and I have been chatting online for months now so it was great to finally meet her in real life. I fell in love with not only her but with her beautiful creations in paper, ribbon and sparkly bits. From retro to classic, colourful to muted, Abbey's display was one of the most indearing there..and she had cupcakes! Now who could say no to that!?
♥ Myself and David had waaaay too much fun at the Booth Nation/Glitterbooth. As we walked past I was instantly drawn to the 8 foot, silver glitter-covered photo booth. We were greeted by Seamus who immediately told us to hop in and give it a go, and inside only a bloomin' built in wind machine (you can see we had fun with that!) I swear to god, if I was getting married again I would totally have one of these. Awesome!
Somewhere Over the Rainbow at The Photography Farm – Preview
September 30, 2011
So this week I spent most of my time hanging out with a bunch of amazing wedding photographers at The Photography Farm, hosted by photographer Lisa Devlin. We drank (way to much) wine and (too many) cocktails, some brave souls swam in the pool or hung out in the jacuzzi...oh and we even threw in a bit of learning too!
A Sunday Kind of Love: Looking Forward
September 2, 2012
On Friday Gareth & I packed up the car (again!) and drove down to Brighton (again!) for another School of Rock blogging workshop. The event was fabulous, my class were ace, and the whole thing left me with a warm n fuzzy feeling inside. As we drove away that night (slightly topped up with the celebratory after-workshop-wines - don't worry Gareth was driving!) I turned to him and gushed away about how incredibly blessed I feel. Like, how is this my life? As someone who tentatively dipped her little toe into the blogosphere all those years ago, I can't quite believe that people now line up to come and hear me speak about my journey. Like seriously... this is nutso. Even Darren Rowse of Problogger is singing my praises. Yeah no big deal or anything...
