Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk Wedding Ideas
May 11, 2016
The theme of this shoot was Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk with a little bit of high fashion thrown in for good measure.
“I think Rock n Roll gets boxed in too easily”, explained photographer Phi Porto. “I am a former vocalist of a band, tattooed from head to toe and I used to only wear all black t-shirts and shorts. I am now married, run a business and I love men’s fashion, particularly wooden bow ties. I don’t believe I am any less punk rock or Rock n Roll. I still have the same passion and wanted to exemplify that through this shoot.”
“I wanted to inspire Rock n Roll brides to be themselves and not be boxed in by any title. The models for this shoot have completely different lives but from the blue hair of the bride to the sailor jerry style tattoos on the groom, they are still Rock n Roll!”
“If you search Google or Pinterest for ‘Neo-Victorian’, Steampunk’, or ‘high fashion’ you will find tons of images for shoots in those categories. However, we couldn’t find anything that mixed the genres so that’s what we wanted to do! This shoot shows that you can be influenced by more then just one thing and allow yourself to truly show who you are. I hope the readers of Rock n Roll Bride will realise this for their weddings too!”

Time travel. Steampunk. Victoriana. Turn of the century industrialism. If you love any of these things then you're going to die over this shoot, sent over from Ireland by the fabulous Chemistry Photography.
"We put together this shoot with an amazing crew of 20 creatives including designer Alice Halliday (she's the glowing goddess who designed Florence Welch's infamous cape), Pearl & Godiva (styling genius and vintage hire guru), and rockstar make-up artist Kathryn O'Neill (she rocks the wedding world and all the Irish mags)", photographer Kait told me.

Happy Halloween! Today's shoot is strictly Halloween themed, but I thought the Victorian gothic vibe would be inspiring none-the-less. I mean, who doesn't love a good horror movie?
Colourful Bridal Shoot Inspired by Rock n Roll Bride!
June 25, 2017
I'm not usually one to get persuaded by flattery, but when a photographer Isabel Sacher emailed me to tell me that this bridal photo shoot was 100% inspired by Rock n Roll Bride, well, I had to check it out! It's pretty mad to think that this little blog I started in secret ten years ago is now inspiring someone living in a completely different country to create an alternative bridal shoot!

A little bit fashiony, a little bit boudoir - this Steampunk themed photo shoot sent me weak at the knees! Inspired by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, New Orleans and Dita Von Teese, photographer Kamila couldn't wait to put together a shoot like this.

This colourful bridal shoot is so fun! You've gotta love model Amanda's pink hair (some loyal readers might recognise her as her unicorn wedding was featured inside issue 4!), the Couture Company dress and that fabulous Scottish landscape.
A Very Non Wedding: Whit & Colby
September 3, 2012
As a girl who's more than slightly obsessed with weddings and photography, there's pretty much nothing more thrilling to me than discovering new (to me) wedding photographer that is INCREDIBLE. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does I feel like I've won the wedding-blogging-lottery. And don't even get me started on what happens when I discover a videographer with as much talent as this. Actual tears people, there were actual tears.
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!
