WIN One of Five Free Trash the Dress Bridal Shoots with Photographic Blonde

Don’t worry you don’t literally have to trash your dress (well unless you want to!) to enter this contest with wedding photographer Photographic Blonde! Photographer Emily would like the opportunity to shoot some kick ass Rock n Roll Brides and what could be a better way to do that then to ask you lot if you’d like to model for her? Not only will you have a great day but you’ll have some really fun and unique photographs to keep forever.

“Hey I’m Emily aka Photographic Blonde. I set up my wedding photography business three years ago after working in the photography industry for seven years, and I was adamant that I wanted to offer couple something different for their weddings.”

“I am passionate about the concept behind ‘trash the dress’,” Emily continues. I think it is a crying shame that so many stunning wedding dresses are packed up & pushed to the back of a closet after the big day. My aim is to celebrate the beauty of both the dress & the bride by creating images that capture their style & personality. The word ‘trash’ tends to put some people off the idea so be rest assured that you don’t actually have to ruin your dress to get some great shots! However if you’re willing to dance in a fountain, run through a field of flowers, have a food fight or cover your self in paint then I’ll be by your side all the way & ready to hand you a towel at the end!”

The Prize

Emily would like to offer FIVE lucky Rock n Roll Bride readers a day long (or however long you need to make your vision happen!) trash the dress/rock the frock photo shoot. The prize includes a hair & make up artist to make sure you’re looking your best as well as approximately 30 high resolution, print quality images for you to keep, delivered via online download.

To Enter

For your chance to win one of these five free photo shoots simply email Emily on info@photographicblonde.com with the subject link ‘Trash the Dress’ and include:

WIN Free Wedding Photography with Rebecca L

This Contest is Now Closed

I’m utterly thrilled today to share with you a brand new competition. Rebecca L is very generously offering a free engagement shoot to TEN Rock n Roll Bride readers and then free wedding photography to her favourite of these ten couples. We all know weddings are expensive things, so how awesome would it be to get your wedding photos (and great wedding photos at that!) for absolutely nadda!?

Rebecca is based in London and has been a fashion photographer for 5 years. However recently she has moved into shooting weddings and loves it. “I have been a photographer for many years, but launched Rebecca L Weddings in Spring 2011 as there is nothing I want more in the world then to shoot unusual, quirky, vintage and fashionable weddings,” she explains.

“I absolutely LOVE Rock n Roll Bride, when I first stumbled on Kat’s amazing website a year ago I just knew these are the weddings I wanted to photograph as I’m completely eccentrically crazy myself, and a wedding to me isn’t a wedding unless its completely unique, different and damn right outrageous.”

The Prizes

Rebecca is giving away ten yes ten free engagement shoots (worth £500 each) to Rock n Roll Bride readers. The shoots will take place before 1st June 2012 and following this, Rebecca will pick her favourite couple and shoot their entire wedding for free!

Each winner of a free engagement shoot will receive a 2 hour shoot in the location of their choice (reasonable travel must be paid for Rebecca if shoot is to take place outside of London/Surrey) and approximately 50 fully edited and retouched high res images (as well as low res versions for sharing on facebook etc).

The ultimate prize (an engagement shoot and the wedding photography) is worth a stonking £2000 and the winners will receieve everything the engagement shoot winners get PLUS 8 hours wedding day coverage and 400+ retouched/fully edited high and low resolution images.

Again, if your wedding will take place outside of the London/Surrey area travel expenses must be covered.

The winning wedding must take place before 1st June 2014.

Vivienne Westwood 2012 Bridal Collection – Exclusive First Look & Win Tickets to The Luxury Wedding Show London

I’m pretty sure by now that you’re aware of what a HUGE Vivienne Westwood lover I am, so when they guys at The Luxury Wedding Show, London called me as asked if I wanted to share the exclusive first showing of Vivienne’s latest bridal collection…well I just about died.

They say of the collection, “For this latest bespoke Couture and Bridal Collection, Vivienne Westwood has extended the collection up to 20 styles, whilst remaining faithful to her strong belief that femininity ought to be celebrated. The tailoring, corsetry, crinoline, and soft lines of this collection all enhance the feminine silhouette. There are silk satins, georgette and chiffon for the draped and slinky styles, silk duchess and taffetas for the gowns, and embroidery, lace, tulle and sequins all to enhance the couture styles. The collection is romantic yet strong with the colour palette ranging from  white, soft ivories, champagne, dusty pinks, gold, to a sumptuous red. The Westwood bride is an independent woman and this is reflected in the collection.”
