With Extra Sparkle

This little gift arrived into my inbox the other day from the ever delightful Brandi Thompson…I didn’t realise it was Christmas already! You might remember Jayme from her engagement session with her (then) Hubby to be Matt and those shoes! Well from these it would appear that their wedding was just as Rock n Roll, gothic and pretty damn cool. Her dress was made especially for her by a local seamstress and the hat was from Leg Avenue to which she added her own extra sparkle!

Under the Spotlight – Whirlingturban

whirlingturban

Have you been dreaming about a gorgeous vintage style gown but have been afraid of the potentially massive price tag? Well Katherine Robinson of Whirlingturban has the answer!

From a career in Hollywood making glamorous outfits for superstars, Katherine relocated to Bali (!) 8 years ago where she designs and makes vintage reproduction dresses.  Her stunning ready made creations for example start at just $400 in her wedding boutique and for a completely custom dress you’d be looking at prices from only $800. As everything is done online she will even ship out a loaner dress to you to make sure the cut and fit are perfect before she makes your dress.

One if their most popular dresses is the beeeautiful Wing Bust Dress. Not only is the fabric hand woven locally especially for the dress but you can add your own accent colour to match your wedding theme. Whirlingturban has a plethora of accent colour choices and you can even supply your own fabric if you have something more specific in mind.

Thanks to Katherine and the girls at Whirlingturban for taking part in the Under the Spotlight feature, and as a little bonus for you all they have offered a FREE matching bolero to any Rock n Roll Bride reader who quotes ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ when ordering the wing bust dress. Orders must be placed by 13th November 2009 to qualify.

Dressed to Impress – Part Deux!

Sandra & Duncan’s ‘Dressed to Impress’ wedding made such a stir when I posted it in September that  I have been eagerly waiting for more from photographers Chanelle & Craig. As you may remember, Sandra is a fashion designer so made her impressive dress and customised her own Casadei Couture shoes. Well the follow up is just as glorious – check out her inspiring reception dress, which she again designed and made herself. These are off-the-chart amazing – Carrie Bradshaw who? For all the juicy details on the outfits, the venue and the vendors head over to Segerius Bruce’s blog…yummers!

Made To Measure

Evita & Micheal had a very uniquely styled wedding and ‘day after shoot’ (which actually took place 4 months after the wedding but who’s counting?) The whole glorious wedding is featured in the Fall issue of Weddings Unveiled Magazine (and is on their blog, Completely Unveiled) but I was over the moon when Evita asked if I would like to share their American Gothic style photo shoot too.

Top 20 Rock n Roll Weddings… Part 2!

So it turns out you all loved the top 20 huh? Well I did too and to be honest it was really blooming difficult to narrow it down to just 20…fancy seeing 20 more then? I’ve only featured weddings that are older than about 4 months (past 50 pages in – there are well over 100 pages of old posts on this site…oh yes!) because otherwise I would have been here forever. Some of these you may have seen before and some I’m sure you certainly won’t have. That is the beauty of the top 20! Again, let me know what you think…
