Roxane and Stephane were married in Provence in a low key, inexpensive wedding that felt perfectly right for them. They spent €5000 on food and drink, €400 on a venue and everything else was either gifted or they already owned.
Rock n Roll Bride magazine was launched in print in January of 2015. In a time when print was ‘dying’ and other magazines were going digital-only, we did the opposite. We’d been a blog for nearly a decade but I was ready for a new challenge, and with everything in my life it would seem, I wanted to buck the trend.
28 issues on and we’re still going from strength to strength, but today’s announcement may just be the biggest we’ve ever made (so far!) I am SO FREAKIN’ OVERJOYED to tell you that Rock n Roll Bride magazine is expanding. From the next issue onwards we are going to be sold in stores in America, Canada AND Australia!!!
THAT’s RIGHT, you’ll now be able to find the magazine in Barnes and Noble in the US, Indigo Bookstores in Canada and select independent book shops and newsagents in the US, Canada and Australia. I know, I know, there are NO WORDS to express just how exciting this is!
One of the things I get asked lots is if we’d ever expand and start selling the magazine overseas (especially in the US) which always made me laugh a little bit because we feature content from all over the world and we ship worldwide, but still, even in 2019, there is a demand to have print products available to purchase in physical stores (plus those international shipping rates can be rough). However even in the UK, where we ship for free, around half of our readers still go out every other month and pick up their copy in a shop rather than ordering it online. I guess there’s still something so satisfying and cool about finding the magazine you want in a store, picking it up and paying for it in person. Wild, huh?
This issue will be in UK stores from September 5th. It’ll appear on US newsstands from October 10th, in Canada from October 20th and Australia from November 19th!
If you are based in these countries and have a subscription or would prefer to order via our website, you still can. Also, if you order during the pre-sale or first few weeks of each issue going on sale, you’ll probably receive your copy before you’ll be able to find it in a shop (the nature of distributing overseas means the availability will be behind the UK release dates. They gotta travel over in a huge container ship!) But nonetheless this is a pivotal moment for Rock n Roll Bride and I COULD NOT BE MORE ECSTATIC ABOUT IT.
They originally planned to marry in London but after searching high and low for the perfect venue that they could afford and didn’t feel too cramped, Ify and Ed instead decided to decamp to St Albans where they could spread things out a bit! They chose Springfield Park as the location and set up their own marquee to create the outdoor and spacious wedding of their dreams!
Eugenia and Enrico’s theme for their Italian wedding was ‘take it easy’. That meant they wanted to make the celebration as fun, stress-free and easy for everyone as possible. They told their guests they could dress casually, however they felt most comfortable, the goal was really just to have a party where they happened to get married!
Jennifer and Sacha achieved the impossible for their June 2019 wedding – they managed to bring 31 of their closest friends and family members from three different countries to celebrate with them in Italy! Inspired by both their European heritages and the music and art that they love, they chose to get wed overlooking the beautiful Amalfi Coast in an antique fairytale themed celebration of love, beautiful surroundings and their nearest and dearest.
