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.

We also collaborated with a couple of high street brands to show that you don’t always need to spend a complete fortune to look like a million bridal bucks!

The third look was probably my favourite of all – the tee-shirt came from the back of my own wardrobe would you believe, and the skirt was made especially for us by Bex Brides.

This shoot, as featured in Rock n Roll Bride magazine issue 24, was created by me and my team for the fearless bride who isn’t afraid to push bridal fashion boundaries. We wanted to play with gender neutral tailoring and pair outfits with Converse or a pair of brogues to create an effortless and minimalist look.
If you’re not one to wear a dress on your wedding day, then why not try experimenting with jumpsuits, sheer shirts, statement blazers and wide legged trousers or cigarette-style pants? Adding layers of texture with different fabrics will also add interest whilst retaining the feeling of simplicity.
This shoot took place at the gorgeous Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green (thanks for having us!) and we worked with two beautiful models this time, Daisy (cropped hair) and Darcey (bobbed hair). I hope you love this shoot just as much as I do!

I’ve got a little something different for you today. No, this isn’t a photo shoot with models, it’s Jocelyn and Jake’s real wedding portrait session!
“Being a creative couple, we wanted something that is a little different from what my friends have for their wedding photos”, said the bride. “Other than having a wedding and a bridal shoot in winter, we wanted a style that is quite unique. Our shoot was set in a manor house, Hammerwood Park. The interior really gives a strong presence in the images with the textures and colours within. It’s almost each room has its own personality.”
The shoot had two distinctive themes, one to suit Jocelyn’s traditional Chinese wedding outfit, and the other for her more western attire. “The dresses were my own, I actually sourced them online back when I was in Hong Kong”, she continued. “We wanted both my traditional Chinese “kua” as well as a white bridal dress. The Chinese outfit is vastly different from colours to jewellery – it emphasises on red and gold, auspicious colours for festivities in my culture. There is also a phoenix and a dragon that symbolises the husband and wife. The headdress is gold and appears to look like a bird, or a phoenix. The gold bangles are worn on both wrists and each have a phoenix and a dragon carved on it symbolising marriage. There is a character on the outfit embroidered, signifying happiness.”
