And the Cosmopolitan Magazine Award for Best Wedding Blog goes to…

Erm…ME!

Wow, I feel like I should be doing an over-indulgent Oscar-worthy speech right now but I literally can’t find the right words… So I’ll just say thank you a million times. Thank you for voting for me, thank you for believing in Rock n Roll Bride, thank you for your support…you get the idea.

Seriously, there are not enough thanks in the world.

Before the awards I met with photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre for a coffee and he asked if he could take a few photos of me…which was pretty handy because now I can show you what I wore to the event.

Ashton is, like, beyond amazing and his film photography makes me weak at the knees (plus he had the photos to me before I even got home – now that’s impressive!)

Ashton, these photos are beautiful. You are a god of film photography.


Dress: Vintage – found in Oxfam this week for £35!
Belt: Primark
Sparkly Brogues: Also Primark – £12! (can you believe that!? I think I’m in love with them)
Coat: H&M
Necklace: Magpie Vintage
Brooch: Vivienne Westwood

And here’s a few photos from the actual award’s ceremony. They’re only phone piccies I’m afraid. The professional photos from the night will be in a future edition of Cosmopolitan Magazine. I was also interviewed for their website… and yes I’ll post that as soon as I see it!

My little blog up in lights…

I went to the awards with Adam & Charlotte of Rock My Wedding and we had a lot of fun in the photo booth being run by photobooth.co.uk. I’ll share the rest of the photos and hiiiilarious video (a photo booth that does video? Oh yes please) I did with them soon as I can. Us wedding bloggers do love a photo booth you know.

Here I am with my award – a hand drawn bespoke illustration by Ros Shiers. Oh my, I was so shocked when they called my name I didn’t even hear it properly! I only realised I’d won after Charlotte squealed in my ear “You’ve won!” and gave me a massive hug. I’m a little fearful of seeing the photos they took of me on stage, I was shaking like an actual leaf.

A close up photo (again just shot on my phone…)

Unfortunately I think Adam was a bit of a sore loser…

I also won a free pair of shoes or a handbag of my choice from Stylist Pick. I think that part of the prize was what he was more gutted to be missing out on if I’m honest…

Again (last time I promise) THANK YOU from the bottom of my little pink heart. Truly.
