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.
Over the past 8+ years I’ve woken up excited to turn on my computer and crack on with work (and that’s something I thought I’d never have in my life)… that is until it started to get too difficult. It stopped being fun. It started feeling like more of a chore than a labour or love. And if you don’t love something any more, why would you torture yourself? Life is just too short.
So I’ve come to a big decision. Its been really hard to make but I hope you’ll understand. I’m quitting Rock n Roll Bride. I’m not sure what I’m going to do next but I know it won’t be anything to do with weddings.
JUST KIDDING YOU GUYS. Happy April Fools Day!!
You ain’t getting rid of me that easily! Sorry everyone, I hope I didn’t scare you too much…! The blog and magazine are still very much alive and I’m still very much obsessed with all things wedding.
Did I fool you?

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

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.
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!

I need to be honest with you. I've fallen out of love with my blog. Not completely, we're not breaking up or anything, but we're having a moment.
