Rock n Roll Bride promotes individuality and general awesomeness within a cookie cutter and often puke-worthy wedding world. Don’t let the wedding industry define your day, let YOU define your day.

Rock n Roll Bride is all about the charm and unique nature of ordinary people’s extraordinary weddings.

Our passion is inspiring couples to plan the wedding that they really want in a world dictated by tradition.

Being ‘Rock n Roll’ is not about being cool, a rebel or even thinking of the most unique idea you can. It’s about planning a day that reflects you and your partner and declaring your love in your own special way.

You don’t have to be wacky; you don’t have to be offbeat and you certainly don’t have to be intentionally ‘different’ – you just have to be you.

Launched in 2007 as a blog while our editor-in-chief, Kat, was planning her own wedding, Rock n Roll Bride came about because she became jaded by the limited offerings of the UK wedding industry. If you didn’t have a big budget, if you didn’t want something traditional and if you didn’t fit in to the straight, white, able-bodied bridal mould, there was nothing for you! Kat saw a niche for alternative wedding inspiration and ran with it.
