Til Death Do Us Part: Occult & Tarot Themed New Orleans Wedding

Renee and Richie love candles but aren’t big fans of flowers, so they decided to not have any at their November wedding. Instead they incorporated fog machines, smoke bombs and candles to create a spooky ambience on the day. The bridesmaids carried incense burners, and as the couple walked up the aisle to be wed, they lit candles held by their guests to guide them. They were also heavily inspired tarot cards, incorporating them in the invitations, signs and centrepieces at the reception.

The ceremony was held the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum and one of their best friends got ordained so they could officiate their wiccan ceremony. “We gave him the free range to customise the ceremony it since he has known us so long”, they explained. “We wrote our own vows and had guests bless our rings while they waited for the ceremony to start. When it started, we had lit candles, and each guest had an unlit candle which we then lit as we walked down the aisle. We then did our unity candle in my grandmother’s silver. I had one of my sorority sisters do a reading special to us, we exchanged our vows then we second lined outta there!”

Contemporary & Colourful Saguaro Palm Springs Wedding

Ali’s main goal for her June wedding to Mike was for it to feel modern and contemporary with a colourful edge. They chose the iconic Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs which obviously ticked all the colourful boxes! They didn’t need to add much in the need of extra decor at all, using the rainbow backdrop of the hotel in all their photos.

“We both knew we wanted a desert wedding, but didn’t want to ‘rough it’ out in the middle of no where”, Ali said. “Palm Springs has always been a special getaway for us since early in our relationship, and it has the look and feel of the desert vibe we wanted. Mike and I are also big fans of the tiki world. We knew we wanted to incorporate some of that into the wedding, but without having it be a ‘tiki themed’ wedding. As soon as I saw The Saguaro Palm Springs, I knew that’s where we’d be getting married one day!”

Colourful “Piss Up in a Brewery” Wedding

It’s no secret that we LOVE a colourful wedding here at Rock n Roll Bride, so Jess and Rob’s day, which took place in July 2019, was right up our street. They were married in Lancashire at Holmes Mill, Clitheroe, an old textile mill and has the longest bar in Britain! As the bride studied fashion at university and the groom loves beer, it seemed like the perfect spot. “We literally had a piss up in a brewery!” Jess laughed.

Jess bought her dress from Dreamcatcher Bridal, but she didn’t like the traditional shape. She opted to cut the long train off (“the lady in the shop was horrified!”) to make it her own. She then had the giant bow added as well as some lace from her grandma’s handkerchief which she had on her own wedding day.

Issue 33 is Available for Pre-Sale Early!!

Price Deliver To +Shipping
£4.99 9.95

Exciting news! Issue 33 (July/August) is now available for pre-order! Our last issue sold out in just TWO WEEKS and as so many of you missed out, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to release pre-orders for the next one early. This means we’ll be able to gauge the demand a bit better and we can print enough copies to make sure everyone who wants one, gets one. If you want to guarantee that one of these babies will drop on your door mat then please pre-order yours now. UK postage is free and we ship worldwide. They will begin to ship from June 26th.

We have also made the decision not to put issue 33 in to stores, if you want this one you MUST order it from us. We feel so much better about having you order online right now rather than making you rifle through stores to get it. Many of our stockists are still closed, and those which are open are only offering limited inventory to help reduce the workload on their staff, so this makes the most sense all round.

The theme of the issue is REBIRTH because that’s what we feel is happening in the wedding world right now. While gatherings are on hold we’re seeing a huge shift in the attitude of couples and the wedding industry alike. For brides and grooms-to-be, the general consensus seems to be that you just want to get married already! Your wedding plans are getting smaller, your days will be more intimate and, arguably, even more special and heartfelt, too. You’re focusing less on the ‘stuff’, the extravagance or on throwing the ‘best day ever’. You want to make things simple and personal and to be with your loved ones.
