Living Art: An Art-Inspired Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine
November 9, 2020
Featured inside and on the cover of
issue 34 of the magazine, the inspiration for this shoot was to find the art in the everyday, to remind us that life is beautiful and creativity is everywhere – we just have to know where to look for it. Whatever craziness the world throws at us next, there will still be art, love and creativity to inspire us.
I commissioned original pieces of artwork by my super talented sister
Rachel Underwood (you can find her on Instagram and yes, she takes custom orders!) to create original pieces of art which we projected on the wall behind our model Jay, as well as adding them over some of the other images in Photoshop afterwards.
The incredible illustration meets painterly makeup look created by
Shani Mushington was trippy in person but we loved how it turned Jay into a living piece of art.
If you’d like to see the behind the scenes action, the superbly talented
Loved Up Films was there too and captured the magic on film!
As always, there was many, many beautiful images that didn’t made the final print spread, and here are some of my favourites!

If you grew up in the 80s and early 90s you probably have fond memories of movies like The NeverEnding Story and Labyrinth. The Jim Henson fantasy film starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly was a particular favourite of ours, and the bubble scene and Sarah’s ball gown made for perfect inspiration for issue 40's editorial shoot.

I am so excited to finally be publishing this bridal fashion editorial in full today!

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.

Making History: Rock n Roll Bride at the Natural History Museum

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!?
