You may remember that over the Summer I was asked by my photographer friend,
Al Overdrive , who not only shoots weddings and live music, but was shortlisted for Tattoo Photographer of the Year 2010, asked if I’d like to do a shoot and interview for new tattoo magazine, Tattoo Revolution. The magazine is a brand new non-profit and ethical magazine from some of the best in the UK tattooing industry.
“We’re committed to producing a monthly magazine that celebrates tattoos and tattoo art, seeking out the most innovative and exciting body adornment from around the world and delivering it in a beautifully produced tone,” they say.
“To say that we love tattooing is an understatement: the passion we hold for it burns deep within our souls. How could it not? Tattooing simultaneously represents the most primal and the most refined expression of self that is known to mankind, and has prospered both in times of popularity and prohibition for thousands of years. There is nothing more evocative in the realms of art than permanently adorning the corporeal canvas, and this is something that Tattoo Revolution is proud to represent.”
So in September, I headed to one of my favourite bridal shops,
Fur Coat No Knickers in London, to do the shoot. I brought along my personal (hehe!) and favourite hair and make up gal, Elbie Van Eeden and the Rock n Roll Bride intern, Alice, for the ride too. You can read all about our day’s shooting here, but for now, I hope you enjoy looking at the ( four page!) interview where I chit chat all about my love of ink and tattooed weddings.
To read the article as well as get your little mitts on the full magazine in all it’s glorious detail, be sure to download the digital version of the magazine for just £2.49 (bargain!) from the
Tattoo Revolution website. Simply click the image below to get there. With a digital version of the magazine being available, it also means that all my readers in The States and worldwide can get themselves a copy too. Hurrah!
Thanks to Al and all at
Tattoo Revolution Magazine for having me, it’s a real honour!

Rock n Roll Bride In Print.
June 18, 2009
So about 6 months ago I received an email from Wedding Ideas Magazine saying our wedding had been submitted to them as a Real Wedding feature by our photographers English Rose and would we be happy for them to share them. Being the huge poser that I am, of course I said yes. So I picked up a copy of the magazine today and although some of the photographs they chose I don't really like (I think my face looks huge in the pain photograph for example!) and the article is beyond a cheese-fest, it is a little bit exciting to be in print...and can you believe they even called me a Rock Chick...maybe they knew...

‘Rock n Robin’: A1950’s Christmas Shoot for the BBC
November 7, 2011
I know what you're thinking...Christmas stuff already woman?! Well just hear me out would ya...
I've known wedding photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre ever since we both went to Emma Case's wedding back in March. I don't think we managed to talk on the night, but after the event I saw some of his incredible photos (that he just took on his iPhone!) on facebook and so I got in contact to ask if I could share some of them on my blog. He said yes and we've chatted online ever since.
Ashton is deaf which makes no differece at all when communicating online, but when he asked if Gareth & I would like to do a mini shoot with him I was a teeny tiny bit nervous on how we would get on it 'real life'. However I needn't have worried. Ashton is so expressive and animated that it's actually pretty easy to have a conversation, and although I didn't know any sign language before we met, we were easily able to chat by gesturing and using good old fashioned pen and paper to write things down.
‘Rock n Riot’ – Behind the Scenes Photos and Video
June 9, 2011
First of all, a big load of love to everyone who took the time to comment, tweet, facebook or email me about the ‘Rock n Riot’ shoot yesterday. As ever I have been blown away with your love and support. I’m thrilled with the results but I always have to go one step further huh? So today I have the behind the scenes shots from Emma Case and video awesomeness from Pete Smyth & Simon Clarke to share.
But that's not all, the styling genius that is the Ava team have also kindly popped by to explain a bit more about how they executed this epic (this word keeps cropping up in relation to this shoot…but seriously, I don’t think anything else could describe it as well!) styled shoot.

Honeymoon Travel Guide: Queensland – Dreamworld, Kangaroos & Cuddles with Brandy The Koala
November 20, 2013
When the initial email from Celeste at Tourism and Events Queensland came into The Blogcademy inbox asking us if we’d consider an all-expenses paid trip to Queensland I nearly deleted it, assuming it must be spam. I mean, this kind of opportunity doesn't exactly come knocking on your door everyday. After verifying that Celeste wasn't, in fact, just playing a rather cruel prank, we started to plan our epic adventure down under!
