Sara and Gigi combined their mutual passion for motorcycles, 80s hard rock and heavy metal music to create their wedding theme. Married in Mantova, Italy, they created their wedding to feel just like a festival or biker party. A friend who is a graphic designer created their unique wedding logo which they then used on the cake and stationery. Their table plan was a denim jacket with patches on the back, just like a biker would wear!

When a wedding photographer decides to renew her vows, you KNOW the photos are going to be totally spectacular. Emma of Epic Love Story renewed her vows with husband Neil, and flew to Mount Teide, a volcano on Tenerife, which holds a special place in their hearts and relationship, to do so. They went on a group holiday together to Tenerife 10 years ago, which is where they both realised they wanted to be a bit more than friends!

Adventure Instead

January 25, 2020

Chris and Kate knew even before they got engaged that they didn’t want a big wedding; instead they wanted a day focused on them and their love, and to rid themselves of all the stress and craziness that comes with wedding planning! When Kate’s mum sadly passed a few weeks before she and Chris were due to get wed, it made them really take stock on what was important, and they ended up cancelling most things they had planned and just went with what felt right.

Woodland Motorcycle Engagement Shoot: Kate & Brandon

Engagement shoots might not be everyone's bag, in fact I rarely blog them myself. But when I saw Kate & Brandon's intimate and utterly gorgeous shoot I knew I had to break my self-imposed rule. I love how these images perfectly reflect the couple - their likes and dislikes, the things they do together and who they are as people - without any pretentiousness. Nothing is overdone and nothing has been imposed by the stylist - it just shows them.

A Day of the Dead and a Hello Kitty themed wedding?! Could Serena & Brent's wedding be more perfect for Rock n Roll Bride if it tried?! The bad news is that I don't have any further info on the wedding, but they photos were just too awesome to not share and I'm sure you can get some awesome DIY ideas just by looking at what they created. I am literally dying over the Hello Kitty in the bouquet and her Tarina Tarantino jewellery. Classic bridal style?! Screw that!

Rennie & Joe’s Vintage Styling with a Quirky Edge

Kat

November 10, 2010

Rennie & Joe are the coolest. The couple, who have known each other for 19 years and were first loves, still felt marriage was important to them even after all that time. "Most would think that it must be boring to marry after such a long time and that we might just be going through the motions," Rennie told me. "On the contrary, our decision to marry was not because we felt we "had to" - we decided to marry after all this time because we are more madly in love than ever and still best friends. We created our ceremony around our wishes to deepen our commitment to each other and profess our love in the presence of those who are most important to us."

"My husband Dewald and I were both engaged to other people a year ago – but when we met it was really a fairytale!" Mona, the bride began. "When they say that opposites attract they are sourly mistaken, my husband and I are soulmates, body, mind and soul! We both have an affinity to all things that are unconventional, covered in tattoos and piercings and we adore all things vintage. After only two months we became engaged and I had his name tattooed on me as a symbol of my lifelong dedication to making the world rock together!"
