So you’re probably sick of hearing about
The Designer Vintage Bridal Show (I have banged on about it somewhat) but I’ve just received the official show photographs from my bestie Emma Case and I wanted to share them soon as… I know some of you will want to see my tutu at least!
You’ve read all about the
Rock n Roll Bride Magazine that we were handing out, but I thought you might like to see our stand too…cute huh?
(and no I’m not just talking about my husband…although he totally is)
All the love and adoration must go to Gareth who organised most of it,
Ava Event Styling who helped me source my ‘props’, Sugalily for the little price tags and the incredible Cutture who made our logo into a beautiful perspex creation. I love it!
As promised, I wore a massive tutu all weekend. You could always spot me coming! Thanks to the AMAZING Monique of
Ouma Cothing who made it for me. It was perfect.
A blogger’s work is never done…
At the catwalk show with the other UK wedding bloggers. Alexis of
OMG I’m Getting Married just couldn’t put the magazine down, Kelly laughed a lot and Amma wore a giant hat for most of the weekend.
Spookily, Kelly of
Boho Blog and I had almost the exact same rainbow manicure!
A big part of the show was showcasing some amazing bridal dresses by British designers. Luckily for you lot,
Emma and the models did a mini-shoot during the show. I die…
Dresses shown by Charlotte Casadejus, Matthew Williamson, Tobi Hannah, Jenny Packham, Temperley London & The Wedding Club
And after their shoot, the model’s had a break to catch up on their Rock n Roll gossip…
Oh and finally…our poor boys. Gareth (Mr Rock n Roll Bride) and Pete (Mr
Emma Case) definitely descended into madness by the end of the weekend. Two full days of being surrounded by wedding-ness – what troupers! Although I personally think they both pull off the ‘pimp daddy’ look rather well!
The show was so much fun and I can’t wait for the next one. It will be running again in February 2012, so keep your eyes peeled to Rock n Roll Bride for exact date announcements!

I almost don't know where to start with writing this post as the whole day is kind of a blur...a fabulous adrenalin-fuelled blur...but a blur none the less.
In actual fact, I know you really all just want to see the photos and video (eek!) of me walking the catwalk so shall we just cut to the chase and get straight to it?

The Vintage & Alternative Wedding Fair
August 28, 2013
Vintage has become a bit of a dirty word in the wedding world. It's been overdone more than any trend' I've ever known... and in many cases pretty badly. But vintage weddings as a concept are beautiful and some of the most creative and beautiful weddings that I've featured have fallen under that 'vintage' banner. In fact vintage weddings are not limited to pearls, lace and mismatched crockery - they can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.
“Rusalka” Styled Wedding Shoot
May 18, 2014
For the photo shoot at the latest Photography Farm workshop, photographer Lisa Devlin knew she needed to do something big. After all, at the last Farm Gareth and I got married again! After seeing Megan and Grant's gorgeous wedding on Rock n Roll Bride, and reading how much Megan loves Disney (and just so happens to resemble a certain crimson haired mermaid) the ideas started bubbling away. She wanted to put a different twist on the mermaid idea though and eventually came across the story of Rusalka, from which The Little Mermaid movie was based. Luckily Megan and Grant also loved the idea and we're thrilled to model for her!
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!
Mark Niemierko’s Valentine’s Party at Spencer Hart, London
February 14, 2012
Last week Gareth & I were lucky enough to be invited to Mark Niemierko's annual Valentine's party, this year held at Spencer Hart Tailors located on Saville Row in Mayfair. I wore a vintage pink 1950s prom dress for the occasion which I had picked up from my favourite vintage shop in all the land, Frock n Roll.
As a little v-day treat, I thought you might like to see some photos (hello pink lighting!) and the fabulous video. I was even interviewed for this one!
