Scaring The Shit Out of Myself in Sweden
October 5, 2015
There are certain things that come up in my line of work that I think “You know what, I really
should do this, but I’m terrified.” It happened when I quit my full time job, when I first travelled across the world on my own and when we decided to start our own publishing company… And it happened again when I was invited to speak at Way Up North, Europe’s first wedding photography summit being held in Stockholm. Although I was scared, I found myself saying yes. I mean being asked to be in a line-up with some of the most amazing wedding photographers on the planet is kind of a big deal. I would have been a fool to turn it down.
I’ve been in a prolonged state of panic ever since I signed up (am I REALLY going to do this!?) and next week it’s finally here. It’s happening. I’m flying to Sweden next Monday to speak in front of 500 wedding photographers about why they should be blogging. AND I AM TERRIFIED.
However I am a firm believer that anything worth doing is always scary. Pretty much every huge career stride I’ve made has come from doing something that’s scared the shit out of me. So here’s hoping this one does the same.

This isn't something I ever thought I'd write about on this blog. In fact I toyed with the idea of whether or not I should actually post this for ages. But instead of trying to think about it too much I just started typing to see where it would go... writing is cathartic for me and I really just felt like I wanted to get this all out of my head. I'd decide whether to publish it or not later.
Six Things I’ve Learnt in Six Years of Marriage
April 11, 2014
Tomorrow is Gareth and my six year wedding anniversary. Instead of writing yet another "Oh I love him so much, he is my rock, without him I am nothing..." blog post (It's true by the way but... well... you know... snoooooze) I thought I'd share six of the most important lessons I've learnt in these six short years.
Rock n Roll Bride for Crown and Glory: Autumn/Winter 2013
October 21, 2013
Not content with just doing one collection together, Sophie of Crown and Glory and I decided early on in our collaboration that an Autumn/Winter range would need to be on the cards. Of course I love the rainbow, neon pop insanity of the first collection but I was also really excited to get a little bit deep, dark and moody for this second incarnation
30 Things To Do Before I’m 30 (in 30 Days!)
Made U Look
March 8, 2014
In thirty days I will be thirty years old. If I'm honest I haven't been particularly thrilled about hitting the big 3-0. People have been telling me how much I'll love it, how your thirties are so much better than your twenties etc etc, but I dunno, the latter part of this last decade has been pretty fucking fabulous.
An Idiot’s Guide to Rock n Roll Bride
January 1, 2014
Congratulations you're engaged! If you're new around these parts I'd like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR and a big fat hello. I am so excited to meet you. This is going to be one of the most awesome / stressful / exciting / fulfilling / hair-tearing (delete as appropriate) rides of your life and I for one can't wait for you to get started.
I loved planning my wedding so much that I made it into my career. Gareth & I were married in April 2008. I started this blog to document the journey and I haven't stopped since. That's me at the top by the way, doing what I do best, lying around in glitter and confetti!
Transforming My Wedding Dress for Our 10 Year Anniversary
April 9, 2018
In four days Gareth and I will celebrate our TEN YEAR wedding anniversary. I can't quite believe it! A DECADE.
With such a momentous milestone coming up, last year I started to think about ways we could celebrate. While moving over the summer, I pulled my wedding dress out of the back of my wardrobe to bring it over to the new house and I realised, bar a few photo shoots at the start of my blogging career (anyone remember these?!) it's pretty much sat there, collecting dust and getting all moth-eaten, since then. It's actually kinda sad when you think about it. You spend such a happy, important day in this dress and then it's either sold on, trashed or, like mine, relegated to the back of a closet.
Why I’m Quitting Rock n Roll Bride
April 1, 2016
When I started this blog I had no idea just how far it could take me. From quitting a well paid full time job to all expenses paid trips to Australia! I co-founded a workshop that taught over 1000 people all over the planet and launched a print magazine!! It really has been a wild ride and I wouldn't change anything that's happened for the world.
45 Things You Don’t Know About Me
April 2, 2014
You'll have to forgive me because this is nothing to do with weddings or business. But today I thought I'd draw back the curtains and share some of my secrets with you. I love finding out new things about the bloggers I read regularly, and I thought you might too. So here are 45 things you (probably) don't know about me!
