Rochelle & Nestle were married at Transfiguration Chapel of Caleruega in The Philippines. Although their wedding started off traditionally with a church service, the couple wanted the rest of the day to reflect their own styles. So they went for a dramatic but elegant blue colour scheme with touches of yellow. The bride wore blue ballerina shoes which she customised herself, the bridesmaids and flowergirls wore various shade of sapphire and the groom and his groomsmen had blue bow ties.
Rochelle’s email to me was simple. “We would like to thank Rock n Roll Bride because you’ve been a huge inspiration to us. You made us aware of the trends and the things we can do except from the traditional wedding. You helped us push ourselves to do the extremes and make us think that the things we thought could not be done are actually possible.”
But it was their gorgeous wedding video that really got to me. Have you ever seen anything so emotional and touching?! I’d love to have had a wedding video like this!
Awww! Thank you Rochelle & Nestle for sharing your beautiful day with us.

Artistic & Wacky Filipino Wedding : Ryan & Garovs
January 14, 2013
One of the main reasons I love Filipino wedding photographers MangoRed so much is because their wedding photography is quite odd. In fact it's darn right bizarre. It breaks boundaries that I didn't even know existed, and it challenges my concept of what wedding photography even is. These images aren't going to be for everyone. In fact I'd bet my entire sparkly handbag collection that some of you will not like them at all. But I bloody love them and their unapologetic weirdness. I'm inspired, intrigued and totally and utterly confused all at the same time. It's pretty darn wonderful. And that's before I even say anything about the actual wedding in the images - fake cotton wool clouds lining the aisle? OH MY GOD YES!
‘Musikasalan’ – The Story of Two Weddings & Wedding Tattoos: Rob & Kit
September 1, 2012
Are any of you considering getting tattoos to commemorate your marriage? Well Rob & Kit not only did it, but they had their wedding photographer, John Nicolay, come along to take photographs of the event. Oh it's like all my favourite things rolled into one - I LOVE this idea.
The couple's relationship and wedding plans were anything but standard - they actually had two weddings! - as Rob explained, "We met in September 2007 as office mates but we never really spoke to each other. Our first conversation lasted for 30 seconds and we only spoke a total of 5 words combined. I simply complimented the comic book that she was reading. Then in December I finally confessed my feelings for her but she told me she didn't want to be in a relationship. Gutted. But I was persistent. I wrote a poem for her daily for the next 4 months. In March 2008 she finally cracked and agreed to be my girlfriend but quickly after she had to leave the country to work in Qatar. We maintained a long distance relationship 5000 miles apart by writing each other daily emails.
A Sophisticated & Sexy Wedding in The Philippines: Francis & Mayone
September 11, 2012
It's unusual for me to blog engagement sessions, but when I saw Francis & Mayone's (potentially NSFW!) I really could not resist. After sharing that, I hoped that their wedding might be as awesome (and that they'd send it to me too) and oh boy did they deliver! Glamorous and elegant, personal but spectacular, sexy but sophisticated, these guys sure know how the pull off a wedding in style!

An October Lovefest in The Philippines: Ray & Yan
November 6, 2012
I love my Filipino readers. This tiny island has been full of Rock n Roll Bride fans pretty much since I began the blog which totally blows my mind. I've never visited, but I'm sure one day I will... I can't wait to meet all those awesome like-minded peeps! I love getting submissions from The Philippines too - not least of all because they always sign off with 'more power to you!' which I love, but also because their weddings are damn cool. Obviously Ray & Yan's submission was no exception - as soon as I saw that dress, which was hand painted by the bride's mother, I melted into a pool of wedding lust heaven.
Beautiful Beach Wedding: Jmie & KC
November 5, 2012
It's getting seriously cold over here in the UK so what could be a better way to warm up than lusting over some beach wedding goodness? Jmie & KC's beautiful beach wedding is just what I needed!
You might remember Jmie & KC from their boxing engagement shoot. Those that do will already know that these guys don't go for the conventional so a laid back and fun wedding was just what I expected. The wedding was held in the idyllic location of the Virgin Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas.
