Emotional Spanish Desert Elopement

Publishing real weddings is my favourite. I love to read their stories, hear all about their celebration and swoon over their creative ideas! So, when I first found out this was a shoot, and not a real elopement, I was a tad disappointed. However it turns out that models Aida and Ismeal are a real couple, and the emotions you see in these INCREDIBLE pictures are 100% real… even if they didn’t officially get hitched. Good enough for me!

These photos, by the super talented French photographic duo Beatrice and Jeremie aka The Quirky, are out-of-this-world stunning. Of course we had to publish them!!

A Hailstorm, A Hidden PG Tips Monkey & All The Fun of The Fair!

Do you ever look at a wedding online and think “Ah man, I would have loved to have been at that wedding!?” I do this all the time and Amy and Dave’s day looks like it was a total HOOT! From a freak pre-ceremony rain storm, to real life fun fair amusements to all their guests, their main goal was to enjoy the day as much as physically possible. And oh boy, did they!?

Married at Marleybrook House in Canterbury, Amy and Dave’s main objective was simple: “Fun! Fun! Fun!” said the bride. “We wanted to organise something that felt like us. Neither of us are religious so we knew we wouldn’t want a church or anything, and a big stately home or country hotel just didn’t feel right. I was also conscious that sometimes weddings can feel a bit stale and formulaic so we wanted to avoid doing anything traditional for the sake of it. When looking for a venue I was trying to find something with a fun edge, and well, it doesn’t get much more ‘fun’ than a vintage fun fair and dodgems right?!”

After Party: A Sparkly, Dance-The-Night-Away Inspired Bridal Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Finding just one dream wedding outfit for is a pretty tall order, which is why we are ALL about wedding day outfit changes here at Rock n Roll Bride! Whether that’s as simple as swapping your veil for a crown, adding a warm jacket, or kicking off your heels (literally!) so you have something more conformable to dance in… Or you want a whole second outfit that’s more suited to throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor, we are here for it!

This shoot was pulled together by my crack team of wedding wizards and me to showcase some of the second outfits you might be tempted to rock as night starts to fall on your wedding day. If you’re the kind of bride to put the E in EXTRA, then you’re going to love these bridal ensemble ideas that will absolutely get the party started!

The editorial was shot on the rooftop of the Ace Hotel in London, a fantastically versatile space that is great for dusk cocktails with THE view of the city, a private party or, yes, even your wedding.

Our model was the completely gorgeous Stephi Eliza, a fashion blogger who I actually stalked found on Instagram! We also worked with some incredibly talented, independent designers for this shoot. I love being able to showcase brands and designers that you might not have seen featured elsewhere before.

Do you know what the hardest part of producing a magazine is? It’s not writing the content, doing the editorial shoot, finding the weddings to feature or even dealing with the print and distribution… It’s the covers! Covers are SO HARD because there are so many elements that need to come together exactly right in order for it to work. Plus, there are differing opinions and favourite images and let’s face it, when it comes to the magazine being on the newsstands the cover is literally what will or won’t make a browsing shopper stop and pick it up. They say don’t judge a book by its cover… Well people definitely DO judge a magazine by its cover!

Sustainable, Bohemian, Backyard Wedding with Homemade Macrame & Self-Grown Succulents

Andrew and Brittney gave themselves just four months to plan their August 2018 wedding. It was important to the couple to keep sustainability and frugality in mind with all the decision making for their wedding day. They had a $10,000 maximum budget, but in reality they managed to keep it just under $9,000. They held the day at Brittney’s parents back garden which meant they didn’t have to shell out for expensive venue hire.
