An Outrageous Punk Rock Engagement Sesh.

Woo! Another true Rock n Roll Bride couple. Rachel & Dale wanted a really punk rock engagement shoot complete with heavy make up (for both of them) outrageous hair and vintage clothes, and after they saw Shelly of Toast of Leeds featured on Rock n Roll Bride they knew she was the lady for the job!

Be sure to check out the video after the ‘jump’ too!

The couple are getting married at the Kirkstall Abbey Ruins in Leeds – at night – with dry ice and super theatrical lighting to boost…hello? Doesn’t that sound AMAZING!

ps I’ve decided I need to come up with a cute name for my true Rock n Roll Brides – you know, you guys who find all your awesome wedding inspiration and suppliers on the site. Answers on a virtual postcard (ie in the comment section) please!

A Really Dramatic Impact

As a pale chick with brightly coloured hair myself, I felt an instant affinity to Cheyenne’s photo shoot. Photographer Sarah wanted to contrast with something dark and almost gothic is style as she knew this would create a really dramatic impact. “The black lipstick was definitely my starting point for the rest of the styling. Our first outfit was the lace trimmed bodysuit with the patterned tights and long coat. We shot in the late afternoon, but it was still over 100 degrees here (LA), she was a real trooper. I thought that this would be an interesting approach to a boudoir session with a bride not into the traditional lacy panty pics. I hope I find a bride who would be down for it! ha. All of the outfits were from my vintage and thrifted collection of pieces.”

Night of the Living Wed

This ghoulish, retro horror themed wedding may not be everybody’s cup of tea but I can’t help but be a little over-excited about it. So. Much. Originality! Photographer Al, who has just been shortlisted for ‘Tattoo Photographer of the Year’ was keen to tell me all about Ash and Michelle Ghoulmore’s (oh yes!) friday the 13th wedding.

The couple run retro rebels store and the horror-themed clothing company Kreepsville 666 so their wedding was always going to be a spooky special. ‘Ghoulmore’ actually is Ash’s surname and they pretty much live Halloween everyday, so it was fitting to pick a horror / b-movie inspired Wedding theme (be sure to check out their awesome invite at the end of the gallery too!)

“This meant I had to light the formals in a slightly different way to ensure I got that punchy highly saturated contrasty feel that fits with the mood” photographer Al told me. “This was the first time I’ve seen a smoke machine used during the ceremony! The archway was decorated with skulls and light like a stage. As you can see form the photos the cake was a skull and all the attendees got to take home a set of cast-silver effect fangs to say ‘fangs for coming’ [groan]. Zombina and the Skeletones provided the live music for the reception, again fitting the horror-rockabilly theme.”

Michelle looked every bit the rock princess in her two dresses, firstly a custom made creation from Limb Clothing, and for the reception/evening a gorgeous Vivien of Holloway gown.
