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.

    Is there a way to buy more than one copy of an issue through the site? It looks like I can only purchase one copy through PayPal.

    Thanks!

    Thanks,

    Hi there,

    I am paying a monthly subscription since November last year and have to date only received one magazine.

    I have contacted you via email on two different email addresses and my queries have not been dealt with.

    I am going to cancel my subscription and ask that you refund me for the past three months please.

    Regards,
    Sharyn

  6. Hi,

    Apologies for being awkward, but I put in a subscription for my partner via paypal and noticed the address was wrong, but in attempting to correct it it looks like I put it through twice.Is there any way I could rearrange this and use the extra funds to buy a back issue?

    Thanks in advance and apologies again for being a pain,

    James

    Hello, in a recent issue you had done a article by Kat on a Victorian Gypsy wedding. I am the baker that did Emily and Jordan Kapellusch’s wedding. I first want to say I loved the article and am wondering if I could possibly get a copy or two of that magazine. Please let me know thru my email I have posted. Thank you again.

  10. I have had bleach blonde hair for a while and this lady decided to do my hair the way she wanted it and made me platinum! But I wired at least a couple days to wash and the first time my hair was wet it felt soft and rubbery! I’m very devastated and want to know how to get my hair back to its normal ways! I cannot deal with rubbery damaged hair! So please help me and I already have gotten a trim!

    Hi Kat,
    Our wedding is in September. We really want to cover the whole marquee ceiling in draped ribbon in different colours. This might be cheaper with fabric, but I was wondering if you knew of anywhere I could find some maybe second hand or already in strips? Surely I’m not the only bride that wants this decor, I mean I stole it from pinterest!!

    Thanks!
    Bryony

    Hi Kat! First I’d like to say THANK YOU for choosing our story and images for your site. We are the “Beachy, romantic, Boho, Elopment” story. My question is; will this go to publication or just the blog? If it goes to the magazine, we would love a copy. Either way, we are ecstatic!!

    Love and light to you!

  26. I just bleached my hair an dyed it bright red. It resulted in a BEAUTIFUL Rose gold color. Can you so please recommend a beautiful pink that isn’t too bright but rather closer to rose gold?

  27. Hello,

    My name is Lior Rotstein, and I am a wedding photographer from Israel.
    I am looking for some details regarding the possibility to post in your blog.

    how does it work?
    should I send you my photos, and if found appropriate you’ll post them?
    if so – do you notify the married couple and the rest of the crew or do I?

    thank you.
