Ray of Light: Flower Child Meets Rock n Roll Soul
November 15, 2019
Israeli dress designer Shimrit creates vintage inspired wedding dresses through her brand
Shimka. Now usually, we don’t publish many photo shoots that aren’t our own, but these images are so damn beautiful I think you’ve got to see them! I don’t think they need much explanation really… They’re just stunning and that straw hat and flower combo, I’m here for it!
The shoot took place at Golan Heights in Israel. Of her inspiration, Shimrit writes, “I really like travelling and wandering and wanted to create a non-conventional production of a flower child with a rock ‘n’ roll soul… just like my brides. I wanted an offbeat, free spirited couple, who enjoy nature and the simple things and wanted it to look very natural and in motion.”
If you’re looking for an undiscovered talent in alternative wedding dresses then you should definitely check out Shimka,
who also sell on etsy. Each dress is ready-to-wear, rather than made to your specific measurements, making the process of ordering much simpler too.

Bohemian Countryside Hippies Shoot: Jesse & Charlie
August 24, 2013
This hippy-esque countryside shoot was set up by wedding photographer Camilla Rosa. who really wanted to shoot an emotional set that perfectly reflected the couple in it. Jesse and Charlie live in a hut on the banks of a river with no electricity, sing in a band, home made pretty much everything and only wear charity shop or home made clothes - so her idea was perfect for them!
Surprise Pool Party Wedding Recreation
November 19, 2012
Oh I love a surprise wedding! And a surprise wedding + pool party!? EPIC!
But this wasn't actually a real wedding (sad face) although it was set up as a recreation of the actual wedding of some friends of the photographer who were married 30 years ago. Jessie & Kenny had this actual wedding, in this exact same spot in 1982 (some of their wedding photos are at the end of the gallery - how amazing are they?!) So to celebrate, and to have an their anniversary party with a difference, they decided to relive the whole thing. This is a styled shoot with a difference and, yes, they really had the big party afterwards!
Bohemian Steampunk Wedding Inspiration from France
June 7, 2014
If I'm being 100% truthful, I've been a little bit over styled wedding shoots for a while now. Some of you might have noticed that I share less and less of them on my site these days. In the most part it's actually because I simply have too many awesome weddings I want to share instead (yay!) but in others its because there really are a lot of boring shoots being produced. Harsh but true!

Bohemian Forest Elopement Shoot in Montreal
May 13, 2018
Using a real couple in a styled shoot is always going to raise the game. As well as getting to see the artistic licence and creative freedom of the wedding suppliers involved, you also witness the mad love and the chemistry of the couple hitting you square in the eyes. It's a heady combination, as this shoot proves.
Forest Elopement with a Pregnant Bride!
July 13, 2018
What struck us most about the beauty of this styled shoot is just how rare it is to see pregnant brides featured in mainstream bridal media - for the most part we’re still being served these virginal images of slim brides dressed in white, and obviously, at Rock n Roll Bride, we ain’t down with that.
