Contact

Email is our love language. For real wedding submissions, freelance writing opportunities, advertising info, brand collaborations, press enquires, messages of love and everything in between, please drop Kat an email to kat@rocknrollbride.com. While we will make the final decision on whether a feature is placed in print or online, you are very welcome to let us know if you have a preference and we will take it into account.

REAL WEDDING SUBMISSIONS

We accept real wedding submissions from photographers, newlyweds or a wedding supplier involved in the day. We know you are as time-poor as we are so like to keep things as simple and straight-forward as possible. To submit your wedding drop us an email and include the following:

Images

♥ Between 10 and 20 low res images. Please include portraits of the couple and detail shots (the cake, centrepieces, decorations etc). If the submission is accepted we will then ask you to send the full gallery.

♥ Images can be sent attached to an email or linked to an external online gallery. If you would like submit via Dropbox please email a direct link to the folder itself rather than inviting us to a folder within Dropbox (as these can often be missed).

♥ Colour images are generally preferred over black and white.

Information

♥ The couple’s names, wedding date and location.

♥ A short paragraph or a few bullet points laying out why you think this wedding is perfect for Rock n Roll Bride and anything that makes it particularly stand out.

PHOTO SHOOT SUBMISSIONS

While we favour real weddings over engagement and styled shoots, we do feature all three. Sometimes if we don’t think a shoot works for a full feature, but we like it, we may request to use it to illustrate another article in the magazine (with credits of course!) Boudoir is generally not our bag but if you have something really amazing and unique then try us. We like to be proven wrong as often as possible!

EXTRA INFORMATION

Exclusivity & social media

Rock n Roll Bride will only publish weddings and shoots that have not been previously featured on any other wedding blogs or magazines. Please do not submit anything that is currently pending with another publication.

If your submission is successful and published, we are happy for you to submit it elsewhere afterwards. We only require to be the first to feature something. We do not expect the images to be held back for any specified period of time after our feature.

You are very welcome to publish the images on your own blog, website or social media but if they are picked up by another blog, magazine or publisher it may jeopardise your feature with us.

Will I hear back about my submission?

YES! You will hear back, usually within 2-3 working days, whether your submission is successful or not. If it isn’t please don’t take it to heart! We receive a huge amount of submissions everyday so unfortunately, we are unable to feature every single one. If you haven’t heard back within a week, feel free to send a follow-up as it may have got lost in cyberspace!

How long does it take for a submission to get featured?

Our current lead time for publication is approx. 3-4 months for online features and 2 issues (4 months) for print features.

Permission

Permission to be featured from the photographer and the couple is imperative and the image copyright holder (typically the photographer) will be required to sign a permission form before we share any images. Please get permission from all parties before submitting a wedding or shoot. Weddings cannot be featured without the questionnaire filled in by the couple and the signed permission form.

EXTRA FOR EXPERTS

Things we really love:

Happy, smiley couples in love.
Creative and beautiful portraits.
Colour!
Brides with attitude and a rockin’ sense of style.
Wicked, unique wedding details (cakes, centrepieces, flowers etc).
Pets at weddings. The more the better.

Things we don’t really love so much:

Selective colour. Never ever, ever do it. EVER.
Dutch tilt. It makes us feel seasick.
Over-processed, inconsistently edited photos.
HUGE high res image files embedded into emails.
Weddings that are more about the STUFF than the LOVE.
People that are rude. Or Impatient. Don’t be a dick.

    I adore your site. The ethics and all. I’m getting married myself shortly and wondered whether you could share this on your page to help empower other women that may be feeling this way….

    Now I am one for raving and ranting and swearing but not often taken a stand on social media. I am not articulate, my spelling and grammer sucks but I hope people will get my drift…..

    Friday was one of the best days of my life. My mums and I went shopping for a wedding dress. My heart dancing with a zillion butterflies and my anxiety levels in that place between projectile vomiting and laughing till I wee myself.

    As I stood trying on dresses surrounded by mirrors in the shared dressing room I was opposite a girl who I deemed to be one of the most beautiful and perfect women I have ever seen. A body like in a movie a face like a piece of art. Tall, slender, absolutely stunning. She’d have looked good in a bin bag but as she started trying dresses on I was almost in tears. I was so happy for her but so envious. I wanted to be her. I wanted to look like that and I wanted right there and then for a freaky Friday moment where we could swap bodies.

    I told her she was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen and she looked shy and bashful. She saw me try on my dresses and returned the compliment. I don’t know whether it was just to be nice or not but I appreciated her efforts in trying to comfort my broken mind.

    We left the shop with excitement but not the feeling that we had found ‘the one’. Later that day we did. And I stood there and looked at myself and I thought. …..you may not be that other girl. But you are the girl Brodey Laundon is marrying. I cheered up and thought about him and how much love I feel and have in my heart which makes it almost feel like it’s about to burst.

    I’ve never won and will never win a beauty pageant. I won’t be the girl that guys look at and lust over and that’s fine. Especially because I have my guy……. but now to the rant…… looking through bridal magazines….. I see this. …… (see image)

    Titled THE WEDDING PROCEDURES. Firstly sounds like a really bad hammer horror film. But secondly. …… where the fuck do people get off writing this pure. …..utter shit. I don’t feel good enough most of the time. ….but now…..over the next year. According to this article I need to book a consultation with a surgeon, start using acid fillers, have both, teeth whitening, IV therapy and go for a thread lift on my jowls boobs and cheeks.

    So I wanted to take this opportunity to say FUCK YOU to the “Brides cosmetic guide 2017 in association with Lumity” (more like fucking lunacy) This horrid untreated non-threaded jowl faced lump that I am may not be perfect. But I got a fiance you thick twats.

    Ladies and gentlemen, trans- whoever you are……. people love you. They love you. Dressing gown and hung over. In bed with the flu. Or just plain hormonal. You will look amazing on your day. BE YOU because that’s who we love xxxxxxx

    Hi Kat,
    Congrats on 11 years!! I wanted to ask you for son and future daughter-in-law’s wedding…what the name of the shop is that your sister got her wedding dress from??
    I remember the post and photos from her wedding and it was so fabulous.
    The coolest outdoors hippie chick wedding.

    Thanks, Debra (a major fan in Florida/U.S.)

    Hi Debra, the brand of her dress was Rue de Seine, unfortunately the shop she got it from has now closed down but you should be able to find a stockist near to you!

    Hi Heather, sorry issue 8 is sold out. Have you tried eBay or the Rock n Roll Bride facebook group?

    Hello “Rock and Roll Bride”!! Absolutely love what I just saw regarding your publication…fantastic work!! So refreshing to see something different. I was just talking with my daughter who is quickly becoming a very successful photographer and she informed me that you have published some of her work. I see it is in the Nov/Dec 2018 issue (#23, correct?). I would love a copy of this issue. My daughter is Mikaela Wendel and I believe the wedding was shot in San Diego, California. Since I am in the United States, and have no paypal account, could you please help me obtain a copy of this issue? Of course, I would be willing to do what ever it takes to make this happen. At your convenience, please contact my with any suggestions or instructions. Thank you so much, and keep up the amazingly interesting work!!
