A Sunday Kind of Love – You Lot!

Credit: via scabrous applauses

Warning: Overly gushing post ahead

When I started thinking about this week’s Sunday Kind of Love post there was really only one group of people I could devote it to—you lot!! Seriously, I’m actually feeling a little bit emotional as I write this. I’ve just been reading though all your survey responses and all the LOVELY things you’ve said about me and my little blog. I literally don’t have the words to express how awesome you guys are and how much love is filling my little pink heart right now.

Thank you so much for being you.

Thank you so much for being individuals.

Thank you so much for wanting to do things your own way.

Thank you so much for loving what I do.

Thank you so much for reading what I have to say and for saying such gushing things about me and Rock n Roll Bride.

I started the blog to be a mini haven in this often pukeworthy wedding world and I could never have imagined that so many people all over the world would not only agree with my (often seen as warped!) point of view, but speak so openly and expressively about your love for what I do. I am SO HAPPY to have inspired so many of you and to feel like I’ve helped you all in some way with your weddings, your businesses and your lives.

I’m just a pink haired chick with one to many tattoos, who can’t spell (like, seriously can’t spell!) who spends too much time on the internet, who gets stared at in the street for looking different who used to beat herself up inside and out for being the way she was. I’m just a girl who was bullied at school for being different and not fitting in. In my wildest dreams I could not imagine a more amazing group of people to read my words and love what I have to say.

I might just go and have a little cry…

Thank you so much.

A Sunday Kind of Love – My Husband

Credit: David McNeil

Because without him I am nothing. Because I love him more than life itself. Because he cheers me when I am blue and helps me out when I need it. Because he is a man with feelings. Because he loves pussy cats just as much as me. Because he is an uber geek. Because he helps out behind the scenes of Rock n Roll Bride for no other reason than that he loves me and is proud of me.

Because he is my best friend and I need him to live.

Because I don’t always show my appreciation and he always forgives me.

Soulmates & Magic

Chihye & Tom’s LA engagement speaks volumes of their love. From the simple moments between these two to the beautiful field full of ruby red heart balloons – what’s not to love about these?

It would appear that photographer Chrissy agrees with me “I don’t know if I have the words to accompany these photos. They truly speak for themselves. A couple so deeply and genuinely in love mixed with God’s beauty creates the most gorgeous moments. Chihye and Tom are another one of my kindful couples, our first meeting lasted hours over Sangria and Cuban food. The longer I do my job the more I believe in soulmates and magic.” (and I swear to God I wrote by ‘bit’ before I even read hers! It must be love…)

Win ♥ A Little Bit of Love – From Me to You

This contest is now closed

lovelovelove

As you all no doubt will have seen by now, I had a very exciting announcement to make yesterday. After over a year of working 2 jobs I’ve finally got to the stage where I feel I can cut back on my ‘proper job’ and put more into Rock n Roll Bride. Anyway, as I said before, none of this would be possible without you. Seriously, without you brides (and grooms!) to be, photographers, bloggers, wedding vendors and wedding / pretty picture obsessives reading, submitting and generally loving my little blog, I’d be nothing and Rock n Roll Bride would be no more. So I wanted to give a little something back – LOVE!

I popped into my favourite shop Topshop yesterday and saw a pink version of one of my favourite necklaces. I had to buy it right away and I want to give it to one of you. To enter I want you to email me (kat@rocknrollbride.com) a picture including the words ‘Rock n Roll’. It can be a drawing, a painting, a photograph, a collage…and the words can be written, spelled out with body parts, super-imposed…anything, let your imagination run wild! Get creative and I’ll share the best ones on the blog next week. Be sure to include your own website/blog url (if you have one) with your entry so I can share some link love back.

Now, let’s be honest, I do actually have a lot of male readers too who may not be jumping up and down with excitement over a sparkly pink necklace. However I would love it if still wanted to take part in order to get your creative ideas shared on the blog. I’m taking to you male photographers here! I’m not only excited about giving something away but I’m dying to see what ideas you can all come up with… hey, I’m sure you cool dudes know at least one lovely lady who loves pink glitter!

My favourite picture will win this darling little bit of love – from me to you….and to get you started, here’s one my bestest friend Carly made for me…

Retro Pin Up Valentines Lovelies

With the day of hearts, flowers and lurrrve fast approaching, I have been inundated with Valentine’s themed submissions, however this retro/pin up shoot from Jen Will may well be one of my utter favourites.

The shoot took place in her own kitchen which was the perfect setting for the baking theme. “This is part of the reason I love my apartment.” Jen tells us “It is the coolest apartment ever, and my love for it is part of the reason I have yet to join the adult world of home ownership.  It has a bathroom that would probably rent out as a large bedroom in New York City and a classic stove that came straight from the original Be Witched TV show. No matter where I live in the future, I will always love this place. I am so glad I got to document it in such a special way!”

So Smitten

Are this pair smitten or what? Well it may sound corny but my heart was totally warmed when I laid eyes on these images from Heather & Reid’s wedding. That’s what it’s all about you know – two people in lurrrrrve.

Swoon

Oh swoon! This day after session by the wonderful Stacy Able makes my heart go a-flutter. The shoot took place at the Indianapolis Museum of Art which made for a stunning backdrop – I especially adore the ‘LOVE’ statue which apparently was all ‘gross and rusted out’ but it looks fab to me!

Thanks to Stacy for the exclusive and tagging for naming this post on her own blog as Rock n Roll Bride approved!

Guess Who’s Back?

Do you remember Stacey & Quentin and their awesome love train photo session from earlier this year? I have to say, I see a lot of faces and photographs everyday but as soon as I saw these I recognised Quentin (or more specifically his damn cool beard!) right away. The couple, who cited Rock n Roll Bride as a great source of inspiration during their wedding planning (yey!) met up with Jeremy Lawson for yet more fabulous portraits – lucky things!

Jeremy, you rock my world! MWAH…

Young Love

Dalton & Abby may have only just started college, but already in love they decided to getengaged. To celebrate they had this gorgeous shoot with the very lovely Shannon Nicole Smith who evidently knows I never say no to shoots with balloons!
