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.

    Hello, is this the issue with Josh and Haley Steward in it from New Orleans? Do you have anywhere locally in the Montgomery,AL area where I can purchase one or do I have to order online only?

  2. Richenda

    Hey! I went to get a subscription but I don’t have a PayPal account and don’t really want one – is there any other way to purchase the magazines? Thank you x.

  3. Post author

    Hey Richenda, everything is handled through PayPal for a number of reasons, including security. Just set an account up, its super quick, easy and safe!

    Hi Kat. I’m still looking to find issue 5 as it’s the only one I don’t have. Tried on ebay a few times and it’s usually only sold as part of issues 1-6 etc. Can’t find it in the shop section on the website. Many thanks, Charlotte

    Hello Kat,

    I am writing you from the States. I know Rock n Bride is currently not sold at any newsstands here. I am one of the brides featured in your wonderful magazine. I want to say thank you for featuring my wife and I and giving same sex weddings a platform for the world to see.

    I would like to buy 3 copies of issue 13 but I noticed the page is setup as single orders with individual shipping cost. It there any way I can order 3 copies but have it under one shipping cost?

  12. Emma Baranowski

    It was lovely to see my mum’s (Liz Baranowski) flower table decorations in your 13th issue, page 70 – flowers sourced and arranged all by herself – they looked stunning

  13. julia

    HI!
    Since I live in the US and shipping seems expensive, are your issues available to purchase as digital versions?

    Thanks for the advice 🙂

  14. Post author

    Hi Julia
    It’s just a print magazine I’m afraid, there’s no digital version available.

  15. Hi Kat
    Have you had any luck in locating the issue that would have Michell and Marks wedding from June 2016 as I would love to find the pictures as I made her bouquets.Thank you

  16. Diane Mendonca

    Hi ! My daughter’s wedding Caroline and Steve were featured in the March , 2017 issue, I’d love to get extra copies . You did a great job, loved loved the feature

  17. Shari

    I’m in NZ and want to order the current issue as well as the available back issues hoping to combine them for shipping. I can’t figure out how to select more then 1 item at a time 🤔. Im wondering if it because I’m on the mobile site?

  18. Post author

    Hi Shari

    We can offer a bulk order price for 5 copies or more (ordering any less than 5 really doesn’t offer any saving on shipping I’m afraid). If you want to go ahead, please email us and we can let you know how to do it! magazine@rocknrollbride.com

  19. Morgan

    Hi there! This has probably been answered so I apologize. I do I unsubscribe from the magazine? I love it, it’s wonderful but I’m married and now trying to save a little cash. Thank you! I will continue to follow your blog!

  20. Jamilla

    Lowri

  24. Patti

    I saw a dress on this site I’d love to have for my wedding maybe similar how would I go about inquiring about it

  25. Dawn Dixon

    Please sell digital issues!! Or do you have a US distributor? I want to have all the issues and the shipping is just to cost prohibitive. I love what I see!

    Thank you

  26. Megan Furdas

    Hi, I believe my wedding will be in this July print issue – Megan & Will Furdas. We currently live in the US and I’d like to order more than just one issue – is that possible?

  27. Malin

  28. Post author

    Hey Malin
    You need to order them one by one and we are unable to combining shipping for this offer.

  29. Poppy

    Hi, I was wondering when I will receive my magazine as its the first time ordering online, I purchased the new issue just over a week ago. Can’t wait for it to arrive!

  30. Hi there!
    I asked you a question about wearing a black dress to a wedding. I was worried it was “not done”
    After your reassurance that it was OK, I made a shawl to add colour. Not sure if I can post a pic here or on Facebook. Otherwise check out the photo on Tulip and Thistle Crochet, if you like?
    Mandie 😀

  31. HELLO!!! All the way from the Sunshine state of Florida! I adore all of your magazines and all the killer wedddings! I would love to purchase all of the back issued magazines but do I pay 9.99 per magazine to ship or can you ship them all together?

    Rock on!

    April

    Hi April, its per magazine. Shipping costs are calculated on weight (and size) so that how much we’re charged per issue.
