issue 13 now available for pre-order I thought it was high time to share some of the extra shots from our issue 12 editorial shoot with the incredible Chotronette.
If you haven’t seen their amazing wedding dresses before you have been missing out! They’re like nothing else you’ve ever seen AND they’re so affordable it’s almost unbelievable. They range from just £100 to £850! Based in Romania, designers Silvia and Laura make each of their beautiful creations in their studio and ship them worldwide.
We shot at the super rad
Clapton Tram Studio in East London.
The hair of our usually blonde model,
Pip, was made peachy pink by hairstylist extraordinaire Jo of Love Hair & Co.
Erica and Alex, who make up the magazine fashion team, styled each look by taking each dress and adding some extra Rock n Roll flair!
For the first look we teamed the Lavande Fondant dress (£400) with some velvet Dr Martens and a teal dip dyed ‘Nebula’ veil from Crown and Glory.
The second look paired one of my favourite Chotronette dresses,
Mousse Du Fleur (£850) with an ASOS cream leather jacket, Laura Lee jewellery and some rainbow magic from photographer Lisa Devlin!
We channelled a bit of Resident Evil for the next outfit. The dress is
Pie in the Sky (£495) and is covered in amazing gold leaves. That rainbow made an appearance over Pip’s eyes too – it looks like make up doesn’t it?!
Wildflower Cake (£495) is covered in flowers and delicate butterflies and went perfectly with the fur lined embroidered jacket from ASOS.
Next up we lay Pip on Clapton Tram’s incredible green velvet sofa (can you tell the space is owned by an interior designer!?) which complemented the glamorous
Amaretto Biscotti dress (£375) perfectly. The embroidered boots were also ASOS!
The final look is probably my favourite (or is it the first one? It’s so hard to choose!). We paired the gorgeous and flower covered Marie Antoinette Cake gown (£790) with an old tee-shirt from Topshop, some Dr Martens boots and Pip’s own All Saints jacket. Doesn’t it all look amazing together? This is SO the perfect look for a Rock n Roll bride!
I wish I could shoot with Chotronette’s dresses every single day. If I was getting married again I would totally be considering wearing one myself in fact.
Which is your favourite?
This shoot originally appeared in Rock n Roll Bride magazine,
issue 12. Issue 13 is now available for pre-order and will be in stores on March 2nd.

Into the Wild: Walthamstow Wetlands Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

I am so excited to finally be publishing this bridal fashion editorial in full today! If you grabbed yourself a copy of the last issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a lot of this shoot inside, but today I wanted to take the opportunity to not only share more images that didn't quite make the spread (when 10 pages just isn't enough!) but to tell you all about Walthamstow Wetlands, one of London's coolest new wedding venues, who we partnered with for this shoot.
Mirror Mirror: An Alternative Bridal Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
December 5, 2018
Rock n Roll Bride was built on sharing alternative, inspirational yet attainable real weddings. When I started blogging in 2007 there was no other platform showcasing weddings that sauntered off the beaten path. However through many long hours of trawling wedding forums, Flickr groups and good old fashion Google, I was able to uncover many, MANY incredibly creative, super unique real weddings that weren't being shared anywhere else - I assume because they didn't fit the picture perfect, traditional wedding mould that was so popular a decade ago.
Celebrate & Sparkle!: A Festive Bridal Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
December 31, 2018
Happy New Year's Eve! How are you celebrating tonight? Is it a night on the town, a house party with your besties or a night in with a bottle of Prosecco and turning your bathtub into a makeshift ball pit? If the latter sounds like a damn good time then you're going to love this shoot (ha!) If you're a reader of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a few of these shots, as this editorial was featured inside issue 23, however I thought today, the national day of parties, would be the perfect time to share some of the previously unpublished shots with you.
Heartbreak Hotel: An Elvis & Priscilla Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
December 27, 2016
One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

Making History: Rock n Roll Bride at the Natural History Museum
January 21, 2021
OK hear me out, while 2020 sucked in many, MANY ways, also, it was kind of amazing. We got to spend time at home, we started to appreciate the small things, we realised just how lucky we are to have the NHS and we got to revaluate what is really important to us, too. While having to postpone your wedding was obviously a massive suckfest, it did give you more excuses to buy more issues of Rock n Roll Bride magazine soooooo who can really be mad about that!?
Over The Rainbow: Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

As issue 14 is now on sale, I thought today I would share some of the bonus photos from our issue 13 rainbow bride fashion editorial. I love putting these shoots together with my amazing photo shoot team (do go and check their websites out in the credits at the bottom of this post, they really are the BEST at what they do!) and although I'll always prefer to share real wedding inspo on the blog over styled shoots, when you create something you're proud of its fun to share that too!
Neon Dreams for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
February 7, 2020
One of the most creative and enjoyable shoots we've ever produced, one of my favourite models we've worked with and at one of my favourite locations. Seriously, our editorial and cover image for issue 29 was a DREAM to put together. I really do have the BEST team in the world.
