Ray of Light: Flower Child Meets Rock n Roll Soul

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.”

Pink Power: A Pink on Pink on Pink Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

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.

I love using colour as the basis for our shoots and this one is one of my all time favourites. I’m obviously a pink kinda gal, and if you too fancy rocking your signature colour down the aisle instead of traditional white, I hope these images will inspire you,

As always, now the issue is off-sale, I wanted to share some more shots that didn’t quite make the print spread because there’s always so many great photos that it’d be a travesty to keep them to ourselves! Enjoy!

Alternative Engagement Ring Ideas for Rock n Roll Brides

Charleen, $5693

If you’re reading this, the likelihood is that you don’t want your wedding to be super traditional. Maybe you’re wearing a coloured gown, sashaying down the aisle to your favourite metal song or putting skulls on the tables instead of flowers. All of these things, and many more, are really fun yet fleeting ways to showcase your individuality. After all, once the wedding itself if over they won’t exist in your everyday life.

If you want a more permanent way to showcase that uniqueness as you go on into your marriage, then you might want to consider an engagement ring that feels more ‘you’ too.

Audrix Rustic Light Pink Diamond, $2750
Ava, $2550
Daymis, $1250

Ken & Dana Design, a family-owned and operated wedding jeweller (based in NYC but working with couples all over the world) have a HUGE selection of some of the most unique, alternative and beautiful engagement rings I’ve ever seen. I’m personally loving their range of nude, soft pinks and grey stoned rings, and a raw or rustic diamond gives a very different, much more subtle, overall look than a cut stone would. They’re often a much more affordable option too. I’m here for it!

Indira Radiant, $1800

Neutral & Natural Forest Wedding in South Africa

Louise and Johan wanted their forest wedding to reflect the surroundings. They chose a neutral and natural colour palette of nudes, greenery and some black. They invested a big portion of their £180k budget on the flowers, decorations and hiring the incredible Blomboy, to bring it all together for them on the day. It was also really important to them to make sure they had the very best food and drink for their guests.

“We were inspired by the area and surroundings”, said the bride. “I must admit Johan and I developed this weird attraction to internet culture, such as Vaporwave, plantwave and Lo-Fi so we tried to incorporate various elements from the subculture through things such as pink rope lights, large monstera leaves and so on.”

Vintage & Burlesque Inspired Nightclub Wedding

Stacey and Jason were married in Vegas in secret. They eloped a month after Jason returned from a record breaking seven month deployment in the Gulf. They wanted to celebrate with their loved ones too though, so had a second wedding back in the UK, at The Lucky 7 Club, in Paignton in August.

“We didn’t want a traditional wedding”, began the bride. “We had no cake, no first dance, no photo booth. I had a custom made seaside cut out of us – a ginger bee-hived lady (me) and a sailor (my husband) and people had their pictures taken with their faces on our bodies! We did away with table plans and three-course-meals. Everyone was encouraged to sit where they wished and simply have fun! It was a celebration of seven months apart with our nearest and dearest, and when we eloped for the first wedding, it was such a special time to be together and marry each other alone first – this was so important to us.”
