If you picked up a copy of
issue 14, you will have already seen our “Art Bride” editorial shoot that my fashion team and I put together. Doing the editorial shoots for the magazine is one of the the highlights my job. I feel very much like a character in a rom com from 2005, where the heroine works at a fancy magazine in New York when I do this kind of stuff (ha!)
The concept of this shoot was dreamt up by our stylists
Erica and Alex. I immediately loved the idea! We decided to shoot in black and white to really make the illustrations, done by our FABULOUS design team, We Are Branch, pop. Its super handy when two of your designers used to be fine artists!

We kept the clothing simple and structural, with lots of clean lines and we asked our model, Kenya, to make lots of interesting shapes with her body so we could draw around her. I LOVE how it turned out! I’ve never seen anything like this before in bridal, which of course makes me love it even more. It’s also quite a different idea for us to do too, which made it really fun.

Pop art, doodle-bombing, hand-drawn art: Whatever you might call it, adding a splash of personality to imagery with some fun, colourful illustrations really made this shoot. Reimaging a fashion editorial with additional patterns and embellishments adds a totally different dimension to a relatively simple photo set.

I hope you love these as much as I do and if you missed out on grabbing a copy of
issue 14 in stores, you can order a back issue via our shop. Issue 15 is now available on the high street.

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
May 15, 2017
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.
Pink Power: A Pink on Pink on Pink Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
November 13, 2019
I've wanted to do an all-pink bridal shoot for a long time, Like, my team and I were probably discussing it for a year or so before we actually managed to do it! Turns out you guys agreed that it was a great idea - the cover for this issue was one of the most commented, shared and liked of the year and this issue is now completely sold out! WOW.
The Black Parade: A Gothic Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
January 21, 2022
Issue 41, the gothic issue, featured one of my all time favourite shoots (do I always say this? Yes, probably!) We wanted to elevate the idea of a gothic bride and to create a shoot with a high end, high fashion feel, yet something still super attainable for anyone wanting to embrace the dark side.
Queen for a Day Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
June 17, 2020
Originally published in issue 30 of Rock n Roll Bride magazine (Jan/Feb 2020), our 'Queen for a Day' editorial was all about celebrating how fierce you are going to be as you sashay down the aisle. We wanted to use giant crowns, gold and some really unique florals. As soon as we found the stunning Fitzrovia Chapel, a bedazzled little jewel of a place hidden away in the streets not far from Oxford Circus, we knew it was the ideal location. Oh, and in case you were in any doubt, a big fuck off crown is always a good idea!
