Neon Dreams Meets Afro Punk

Magazine subscribers will recognise this shoot, as we published a few of the images in our March/April issue. However, that just wasn’t good enough, these photos are so epic they deserve a full feature!

Created by florist Danielle Fleming of Your Vision, My Promise, she was influenced by an Afro punk festival which she went to few years ago. She explains, “I was really inspired by the way people were dressed in lovely material and vibrant colours. I loved the sense of freedom and expression. I went home inspired and thinking I would love to do a wedding for some of the couples I saw there that day.”

“Having the time during lockdown I realised that I still hadn’t really seen a photo shoot that really had that theme. So I decided to do one with a photographer I love, Zu Beary.”

She also brought stylist Jeannda fleming on board who was able to bring affordable, high street and DIY elements into the outfits to make it wearable and effective. “I also wanted the flowers to be as much a part of the picture as the models”, she said.

Fun London Wedding with Neon, Gin and a Pie & Mash Lunch!

The main priority for Chris and Nat’s September wedding day was for them to host a really fun party that had little nods to all the things that they both love. They were also really keen to keep things local; part logistics for all their guests, and part because after many years of travelling around, they’ve finally put down roots in London so it seemed like an excellent idea to celebrate the city that they hold so dear.

The couple decided to turn a lot of wedding traditions on their head for their wedding day. The idea of spending the night before the wedding apart didn’t make any sense for Nat and Chris – so they spent the morning together at a hotel, went for a lovely, relaxed breakfast and a wander – before heading back to their hotel to get ready, to find some friends waiting for them with champagne! They then hotfooted it across London to various favourite locations for photos, including stopping off at L.Manze – London’s oldest pie and mash shop – for a pre-ceremony lunch before heading to their ceremony together. “We love now that all the places we went to that day we see regularly going about our day to day life and we get to have little reminders of our day.”

Elegant Dive Bar Wedding Down Under

Both big music fans, Broden and Marnie met at a Jezabels gig in Brisbane. They bonded quickly, geeking out over their mutual music taste, and after exchanging thousands of messaged post-gig, they became a couple. They didn’t officially get engaged in the traditional sense. They were apart for a few months (Marnie in London and Broden in Australia) and one night during a marathon five-hour Skype call they just kind of mutually decided that they should get married. Instead of an engagement ring for either of them, they got matching mallard duck tattoos on their chests.

They were married in September, back in Brisbane, and once they found their venue, Cupo, they knew it was the one. “We wanted the same kind of vibe as the dingy bars and music venues we love to hangout in”, wrote the bride. “We wanted to capture the vibe where we feel at home but we also wanted some dashes of class in there – somewhere you could imagine a rockstar hanging out. We wanted it tough around the edges with just enough glam and one hell of a party.”

Till Death Do Us Party: A Colourful Scottish Halloween Wedding

Both Jade and Jamie are big fans of Halloween so knew they wanted to get married at this time of year and base the theme on that. Their initial concern was that they didn’t want anything looking too tacky and more like a Halloween party, so they focused on a mix of neon, tartan, sequins, skulls and brightly coloured pumpkins for a fresh take on theme. 

They used Pinterest, Instagram and of course, Rock n Roll Bride as massive sources of inspiration. The phrase ‘Till Death’ stuck with them from the beginning, with Jamie even DIY’ing a massive neon sign as well as using it in their vows and then getting it tattooed on their arms shortly after the wedding!

A New Year’s Eve Warehouse Wedding with Neon Signs & A Sequin Dress!

Sophie and Matt’s December wedding encompassed everything that love about the festive season: Sequins, sparkle, lots of booze and party food (complete with a Krispy Kreme tower of doughnuts instead of cake!) The atmosphere was celebratory from start to finish.

They were married at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. “We wanted everyone to have lots of fun and feel relaxed”, said the bride. “We had a lot of neon and the venue was a red brick, industrial warehouse so the day did have a I laid back, industrial feel. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram but really, the venue was the inspiration for the wedding. It was an iconic representation of our beloved city, Manchester, and really didn’t require much decorative input from us – though we did have a lot of fun making things like the table centres, table plan, name cards and floral arrangements.”

Urban Neon Elopement in an Old Berlin Military Base

ARE. YOU. READY. For the best thing you’ve ever seen? Rock n Roll Bride was founded on celebrating alternative weddings that are totally different, and this is going to blow your mind. Laura and Florian’s Berlin wedding was a neon wonderland, including the coolest neon stationery and glow-in-the-dark eyeliner. Techno? More like Tech-YES.

Having seen neon more and more in the fashion world, Laura and Florian had the idea to use it as their wedding theme, mixing neon yellows and greens with white and grey for a classy take on the colour palette. There were neon green details on everything, including on the soles of Laura’s heels, the buttons on Florian’s shirt cuffs, their ring box and their stationery, all from Braune Biene. They had a neon green acrylic menu card and even sent their family a cute elopement card afterwards.
