Centred around some seriously impressive tipis that were set up in the heart of the picturesque Derbyshire Peak District, this shoot was created to showcase colourful, fun and more abstract wedding styling ideas.
“The inspiration behind the shoot involved tapping into the emerging trend for paint splashes and abstract art and combining this with the concept of upcycling”, said Kimberley of
Peaktipis. “We wanted to re-purpose everyday items to give them a new found use and beauty. The palette was fun, springtime, and candy sweet to contrast with the upcycled elements and also keep a romantic, feminine theme. We also incorporated neon signage as a statement.”
“We wanted to push the boundaries and challenge the stereotypical ‘safe’ wedding themes out there. We wanted to be forward-thinking and to create something that could be a popular wedding trend in future. The beauty of this theme is that the very nature of re-purposing means that brides and grooms would easily be able to emulate what we’ve done.”

The Glitter & The Colour: A Modern Festival Inspired Styled Shoot

While all weddings are of course unique in their own way, there are a few themes here at Rock n Roll Bride that, behind the scenes, we’ve been calling nu-trad; you know, like nu-metal, but for weddings. The Limp Bizkit of matrimony, if you will. ‘Festival weddings’ being one of them. There’s a very good reason that things become popular - certain styles, like dusky foliage, painted leather jackets and dainty flower-crowns look beautiful together, so by all means there’s no harm rocking these things if you think they represent you.

It’s 2019, so obviously you’re aware that styling your wedding no longer means having sleepless nights over what Auntie Maude will think of your choice of complementary bridesmaid dresses or meticulously matching the exact shade of sage green of your napkins to - well, anything. You’re fully aware that it’s a-okay to wear a black dress, rock a floral suit or dye your hair pink if you want to. I’d bet you’re constantly tagged in posts about unicorn fashion / rainbow cake / other slightly out-dated but once-alternative fashions by well-meaning but slightly clueless friends and family as the token ~Colourful One~. But when it comes to actually using colour in your big day, are you feeling stumped with where to start and how to get achieve the perfect balance between insta-worthy colour clash and a big old mess?

Dr Who Wedding Inspiration
August 31, 2013
This shoot is certainly going to appeal to all you Whovians out there. Come on then, tell me, who's having Dr Who influences in their wedding? "Ever since I became a fan of Doctor Who I’d wanted to do a styled shoot and combine it with one of my other favourite things in life: weddings, of course!" explained photographer Kat Forsyth. "I’d seen a couple of Who-themed shoots around, but I always felt that none of them got it quite right; they were either really pretty, floral and sparkly, or a little too much like a cheesy costume party. I was sure that by assembling a hand-picked team of Doctor Who geeks (read: experts), we could come up with a shoot that not only captured the quirky and fun aspect of the show, but also the atmosphere."
Flower Beard Bridals with Harnaam Kaur
June 30, 2015
Harnaam Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which meant she started growing a beard from aged 11. Battling to remove her hair every day, and bullied at school, she started to self harm and considered suicide. Harnaam is now a body-confidence and anti-bullying activist and she fully embraces her unique look and hopes to encourage others to do the same. So when this bridal shoot using Harnaam as the model was submitted to me I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement!

As an ex goth, I can’t help being attracted to dark art in general", began Lauren of French Made, who provided the cakes for this shoot.
