Just a quickie post today to remind you that I, alongside a number of other wedding bloggers, will be at the Designer Vintage Bridal Show in Birmingham (UK) on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October. I’ve got a few little treats planned and I’m even bringing Gareth & Roo along for this one. We’ll be like one big Rock n Roll Bride family!
I have to say the exhibitor list is immense and so many of my favourite suppliers are going to be there. I’m super excited! Some of the other exhibitors this year include Rachel Simpson Shoes, The Wedding Club, Emma Case Photography, Lucy Ledger Designs, Dottie Creations, Charlotte Casadejus, Magpie Vintage, Tobi Hannah, AVA Event Styling and Vintage Frocks ‘n’ Crocks.
In fact so immense that the show has had to be moved to a bigger and better venue to hold all these fabulous suppliers! The show will now be held at The Edgbaston County Cricket Ground, just a few minutes down the road from the original venue. Although this new venue looks contemporary from the outside, there is a whole team of amazing suppliers on board to dress up the rooms in a true vintage/Rock n Roll style. In fact I can’t wait to see what they do with it…I know it’s going to be super inspiring to see what can be done to a blank canvas type of space like this. Continue reading
After a well earned and strong coffee to settle our post-TV nerves, it was onto the next order of the day. A photo shoot! Told you I was busy didn’t I…?
The Photo Shoot
Megan had also arranged for me to do a photo shoot with local online magazine Esoteric Velvet (they also interviewed me which you can read here) to showcase her amazing dress. So after the TV slot we were whisked to Tru Salon & Spa where I was transformed into a cyber punk-esque goddess, complete with multi coloured dreadlock extensions, make up by a drag queen (I loved it – that dude knew how to do eye make up let me tell you!) and ripped up tights.
We then drove to what I can only describe as a deserted and slightly smelly field on the side of the freeway, complete with biting flies and a stagnant swamp. Oh the glamour huh!? I jest I jest.
The shoot was awesome and the team filled me with inspiration. I got to set fire to a guitar (well they did, I just posed and tried to concentrate on whether the heat I was feeling was coming from the blaring sun or the fire by my fingers) then release some pent up aggression and smash it up.
The shoot was super fun and the results are pretty damn wicked non? I’m in AMERICA baby!
After the whirlwind of walking the catwalk at Omaha Fashion Week you’d think I might deserve a rest no? Well erm…no apparently I didn’t. The following morning we were up bright and early for another busy day!
The TV Appearance
As most of you will have already seen, Megan & I were invited onto The Morning Blend breakfast show to talk about fashion week and blogging/Rock n Roll Bride. I sure will have woken up some sleepy Nebraskans with my pink ensamble huh!? Gareth took some behind the scenes type photos while we were there. And if you haven’t watched the segment yet (I seriously cringe every time I watch it back but hell, I was on American telly yo! Who cares if I fluffed up a few answers and misread the damn auto cue?!…) you can see it here!
