Noticing a distinct lack of diversity in the wedding industry, Spanish wedding planners
El Día de la Novia wanted to put together a shoot to showcase how different cultures get married. Working with local suppliers, they pulled together very different bridal looks, and I just know you’re going to love these!
“We wanted to do a shoot that was faithful to the personality and culture of three different brides”, they said. “We’d noticed there were many brides who were ‘disguising’ who they really are for their wedding and we wanted to prove that the opposite was possible, and beautiful. Don’t be let down by social pressures, be who you are!”
They shot in
El Molino la Flor, a magical estate located in Jimera de Líbar, Málaga. “We wanted to call this shoot THREE CULTURES because it shows African culture, Cuban culture and Celtic culture.”, they continued. “We chose a minimalist and simple decoration but lots of colour.”
“We hope this shoot will encourage even more readers of Rock n Roll Bride to be themselves, to have the wedding that they always want.”

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!
