Submit a Wedding

If you are a newlywed, a photographer or a wedding supplier and you would like to be featured on or in the print magazine, we would love to hear from you… don’t be shy!

We favour real weddings over engagement shoots and styled shoots, but we do feature all three. 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!

For bonus points, please take the time to read this post for more tips on how to get your submission really noticed before you send it our way.

Things we really love:

Happy, smiley couples in love.
Creative and beautiful portraits.
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:

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.
Super traditional, uncreative weddings.

Most commonly asked questions:

What can I submit?

We primarily feature real weddings, however we do publish a very limited number of editorial and engagement shoots. You can also pitch an idea to write an article for the magazine!

How do I submit?

Email with 10-20 low res images and a brief overview of the wedding/ shoot. If your submission is accepted we will send you all the information on what we need for the feature.

I would prefer to be featured in print. How do I go about this?

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.

Can I send my submission to another blog?

We require FIRST SHOWING EXCLUSIVITY of all our real wedding featuring, meaning it can not have been published on another wedding blog or magazine. There are some very rare examples when we will bend this rule so do please be honest if it has been submitted or featured elsewhere before.

Can my submission be featured elsewhere after you’ve shared it?

Yes! We only ask to be the first place to publish something. After your feature has gone live you are welcome to submit it elsewhere.

Can I publish the images on my own blog and social media?

Yes, of course!

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

Our current average lead time is approximately 2-4 months for online, and 2 issues (4 months) for print.

Will I hear back about my submission?

Of course! You will hear back, usually within 2-3 working days, to let you know if your submission has been accepted 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 hear back within a week, feel free to send a follow-up as it may have got lost in cyberspace!

Please send your submission via email to I can’t wait to hear from you!

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 am 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 my feature. You are very welcome to publish the images on your own blog or website.

    Gi Sullion (“I greet you” – in Elvish.)

    My name is Georgie, and I plan on marrying my Megatron partner. When I say Megatron, I don’t literally mean Megatron the evil transformer, It is simply an expression to show how “cool” my vocab’is. He is actually bloody awesome!!

    Anyway, we are having a Halloween/bonfire wedding next year, on November the 5th. I understand that Halloween wedding’s have been done before, but our aim is to portray a classy sci fi horror themed affair. I will be wearing Black lace, and I hope to look very Maleficent esque’we will have pumpkins and fireworks, and all things ghastly.

    We are both musicians, and music if very important to us! I will be playing my ukulele, and hubby to be is preparing a musical surprise for me 🙂

    I follow every wedding you do, and in all honesty my perfect wedding would not be complete with out you!

    I would be over the moon if you could feature our wedding!

    We are quite swell human’s even if I say so myself!

    The only thing left to decide is what our surname will be, due to an unhappy past we don’t feel that either of our surname’s are something that we will be willing to take into our awesome future together!

    Anyway, I hope you are well, and if you have any further questions please just give me an email!

    p.s please feature us…. we rock.
