Rock n Roll Bride Christmas Cards on Sale NOW!

Ho Ho Ho, Meeeerrrrrieee Christmas!

I’ve been feeling seriously festive these past few weeks. I think it’s something to do with a combination of The Spirit of Christmas Fair that I attended with my Mum last week (it was so FUN!), the fact that I no longer work in a job where we’re forced to sell everything as a potential Christmas gift from September and because I’ve been working with the amazing Sugalily (who also designed the Rock n Roll Bride notebooks and 2012 wallplanners which, by the way, are still available to buy) to design a range of Rock n Roll Bride Christmas cards!

Yes you read that right! Wanna give a little Rock n Roll with your gifts this year?

The Rock n Roll Bride Christmas cards are available for order NOW and are only available for purchase through my website. They cost just £1.50 each or you can buy a pack of 10 (mix and match designs) for just £10…and we ship worldwide! You have until 16th December to order to get them in time for Crimbo, but I’m guessing you’ll want to order them ASAP so you can then send them out to your friends and family.

I’m so excited about having my own range of greetings cards! It’s hard to pick a favourite but I do quite like the reindeer and the ‘merry kat-mas’ design!

A Sunday Kind of Love: Getting to Know You

This Week’s Love List…

♥ buying my 2012 diary ♥ Autumn weather ♥ Christmas decorations in the shops ♥ encouraging emails ♥ Midnight in Paris ♥ wearing lipstick while still in my PJs ♥ wearing slippers in bed ♥ Nurse Gareth ♥ long baths ♥ early nights ♥ dvd marathons ♥ getting prints of some of my favourite photographs ♥ remembering that only I can make my dreams a reality ♥

Best of the Rest…

The funny thing with the internet is that everyone thinks they know best…all hidden behind their keyboards with their opinions on everything. A lot of people think they know the people they see online better than they actually do.

But you know what, most of the people you see online are keeping things secret. Take myself for example, you know I like pink, glitter, kittens, shopping, rainbows…and that I have strong opinions on weddings, but what else do you really know about me?

Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all deep on you here, but in the spirit of getting to know each other better, here’s some things you probably have’t heard about me before…

♥ I don’t eat chocolate…and haven’t tasted the stuff for about 7 years. The thought of it make me panic.

♥ I’ve saw Boyzone in concert about 8 times. I collected every.little.thing with their names or faces on… I had scrapbooks and everything (the obsession stopped when I was about 15 and I discovered grunge. Thank God.)

♥ I hate tomatoes.

♥ I am exceptionally short sighted.

♥ My hair is naturally very dark brown. I’ve been blonde (not a good look), orange, purple, rainbow and various shades of pink.

♥ I have six tattoos…if you count my sleeve as just one that is.

♥ I used to have my left nipple and my right wrist pierced. My Mother was horrified, especially about the nipple thing.

♥ I studied Film and university. I got a 2:1.

♥ I was bullied at school.

And the Cosmopolitan Magazine Award for Best Wedding Blog goes to…

Erm…ME!

Wow, I feel like I should be doing an over-indulgent Oscar-worthy speech right now but I literally can’t find the right words… So I’ll just say thank you a million times. Thank you for voting for me, thank you for believing in Rock n Roll Bride, thank you for your support…you get the idea.

Seriously, there are not enough thanks in the world.

Before the awards I met with photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre for a coffee and he asked if he could take a few photos of me…which was pretty handy because now I can show you what I wore to the event.

Ashton is, like, beyond amazing and his film photography makes me weak at the knees (plus he had the photos to me before I even got home – now that’s impressive!)

Ashton, these photos are beautiful. You are a god of film photography.

The Luxury Wedding Show, London – A Review

I honestly wasn’t 100% sure if I’d enjoy The Luxury Wedding Show, London, that was held at The Saatchi Gallery over weekend. I’m not really a luxury or posh kinda gal so I wondered if I’d walk in feeling a) out of my comfort zone b) snubbed by snooty designers or c) bored of seeing the same old same old ‘pretty white dresses’.

Oh how wrong I was!

Firstly there was zero snootiness despite it’s ‘high end’ location. The organisers were sweet and accommodating and the exhibitors I chatted to were excited to see me and eager to chat about what they did. A lot of them were debuting their 2012 collections at the show, so it was really awesome to see all the new designs and trends coming through for next year. I thoroughly enjoyed meandering around the white hallways looking at all the wedding pretty.

Wedding bloggers can’t stay off twitter. Fact…

The catwalk show was also, no joke, the best I’ve ever seen. I’ve often said that I find catwalks shows a little on the dull side, but not this one! The show started with a crash of dramatic music and flashing lights. As I sat in the front row (‘FROW’ daaarling) with some of my fellow wedding bloggers, we swit and swooed as stunning designs by David Fielden, Luella’s Boudoir, Candy Anthony, Charlotte Casadejus, Vera WangTemperley and (OMG) Vivienne Westwood (to name a few) sauntered down the runway.

The designs were inventive and elegant, unique and original. There was not a boring strapless taffeta monstrosity in sight. This was wedding couture at it’s very best and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Silver accents, unusual hemlines and necklines, bold colour statements, textured fabrics and multi-layered skirts played a big role.

Vivienne Westwood certainly didn’t disappoint

Charlotte Casadejus‘ Isabella gown is made for a Rock n Roll Bride! The tulle and silver paint splattered skirt is to die for! I must borrow this for one of my photo shoots soon. Easily my favourite gown of the entire show.

The Designer Vintage Bridal Show – Official Photos and Show Report

So you’re probably sick of hearing about The Designer Vintage Bridal Show (I have banged on about it somewhat) but I’ve just received the official show photographs from my bestie Emma Case and I wanted to share them soon as… I know some of you will want to see my tutu at least!

You’ve read all about the Rock n Roll Bride Magazine that we were handing out, but I thought you might like to see our stand too…cute huh?

(and no I’m not just talking about my husband…although he totally is) 

All the love and adoration must go to Gareth who organised most of it, Ava Event Styling who helped me source my ‘props’, Sugalily for the little price tags and the incredible Cutture who made our logo into a beautiful perspex creation. I love it!

As promised, I wore a massive tutu all weekend. You could always spot me coming! Thanks to the AMAZING Monique of Ouma Cothing who made it for me. It was perfect.
