As soon as this wedding landed in my inbox, alongside a lovely message from Christine saying she’d shot this wedding with Rock n Roll Bride in mind…well I was sold. Not least due to some of the most amazing flowers I have ever seen! Seriously, these are some of the best diy florals I have ever seen. The were put together by the Bride’s aunt – she definatly needs to go into the flower business!
The dress was made by Igigi and the Bride’s hairpeice by Etsy seller Smitten.

I have loved hanging out with Emily of Peach & Pearl this week..a huge thank you for all her hard work putting together some fantastico inspiration boards just for us. I hope you have all loved them too!
So for the last time (this week) over to Emily…
For my last board, I imagined an intimate, sit-down dinner with your closest family and friends that could be held just as easily in a loved one’s backyard or the patio of your favourite restaurant. While not as rock and roll as some celebrations I could have put together, I think this board really reflects what I feel is the heart of Rock ‘n Roll Bride – not bowing to wedding convention, but truly having the wedding that best reflects you as a pair and your relationship. Keep things simple and handmade with potted herb favours, a hosta and lady slipper bouquet, breadstick and olive oil centrepieces, pigs in a blanket at the cocktail hour, and a short, sassy dress for the bride.

Thank you again, so much, for having me this week, and to Kat for inviting me on to her lovely blog! If you’d like to see more boards and other style + design + wedding musings, I’m over at Peach & Pearl. I also design custom inspiration boards through my Etsy shop, and would be delighted to work with you to put one together. If you’re interested, you can see the details here and purchase here.
I have featured One Love Photo many times on RnR Bride for one reason..I love them.
This wedding was shot entirely on film…and doesn’t it tell a magical story of fairies at the bottom of the garden and childhood dolls tea parties?
