It’s Time to Celebrate… BIG Rock n Roll Bride News!

Credit: Shell de Mar Photography (sneak peek of a fabulous e-session I’ll be blogging really soon)

I just wanted start this week with a BANG and some seriously exciting news!  If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you’ll know this already (I just couldn’t keep it in any longer) but I had to make the big announcement on the blog too. ..

As some of you may know, ever since launching Rock n Roll Bride waaay back in 2007, I have been living a bit of a double life. As well as running the number one wedding blog in the UK (yeah I’m a big show off!) I have been moonlighting as a TV Producer at the weekends. Hold your horses though, it’s not that exciting…I have been producing shopping tv!

I started the job straight out of University in 2006 when I thought I wanted to work in television. While I have enjoyed the job immensely and met and worked with some truly incredible, talented, driven and inspiring people, the time has now come to close that chapter in my life. I will be sad to leave all my friends but right now my allegiances have shifted from selling jacquard duvets and Royal Doulton figurines to bringing alternative wedding awesomeness to the world.

I went part time in May this year to focus more on Rock n Roll Bride. However since then, and because of you, my f-ing amazing readers, I am now in a position to be able to fully support myself with the blog alone. I couldn’t do this with out you and without my utterly incredible sponsors/advertisers. I literally have no words to express how grateful I am to every single one of you for making my dreams come true.

So here on in things are going to get seriously exciting. As soon as I’ve worked my notice, I will be officially a full time wedding blogger.

Pink champagne and Percy Pigs all round!
