I’ve just realised something rather upsetting. When I re-posted all my favourite posts from the old blog, I omitted one of my most favourites from last year! How could I?! I only realised I had committed such a crime when I re-discovered the Bride Amanda’s wonderful blog VintageGlam. This couple and their wedding we’re such an inspiration for our own so I defiantly have to re-post them, like now and if you haven’t seen these before you will be glad I did. Pure vintage, cinematic joy.
And if that’s not enough for you, clicky here for more!

The time has come..I’m going to start the huge job of attempting to rebuild the old blog after my genuis skillz at deleted the blogspot site. The posts will no doubt be briefer than before, as not only has the tempo and direction of Rock n Roll Bride moved on since these old posts but also it’s going to take hella long time – just the best of the best will make the new and improved Rock n Roll Bride!
Let’s start with the stuff surrounding our own wedding, back in April 2008 – shall I re-do the wedding report I wrote? If you want it I can re-post it as I managed to recover a lot of the text on the old blog. But right now I’ll just begin with some of our favourite photographs from the day taken by our fabulous wedding photographers English Rose Weddings.
Regular readers will know I’m all about the love of my photographer friend David who did my Boudoir shoot, our Engagement photos and my post-wedding Bridal shoot. We he’s given me some blog love today so thought I’d repay the favour – go check out his website, believe me it’s amazing!
Who are the readers who have enquired or booked him by finding him via Rock ‘n Roll Bride? I’d love to know – don’t be shy.
From his blog:
Gosh, what a busy day it has been! I spent all day finally getting to grips with my workflow shift over from my PC / Lightroom to MacBook Pro / Aperture, and think I have finally found a way that lets me create some great looking albums every time. It’s amazing how much the little quirks of each system can throw you! I’ll be designing Julie and Dan’s album tomorrow so I’ll let you know how I get on. I’ve also had three further enquiries today for weddings in 2009 which is great, so there’s more names to add to my wee spreadsheet (I have a spreadsheet for everything in my life!).
I think I’m quite a lucky photographer as all the couples I meet are all great fun and are having weddings I’m really looking forward to shooting. With that in mind I thought I’d let everybody know that in January 2009 my website will be revamped with the re-launch of my portrait site and a new pricing structure for my wedding packages.
To secure the 2008 package prices all you have to do is send an email enquiry before 31st December. Exciting additions to the new packages include a day-after shoot, and free-download guest galleries. If you have already booked me then Christmas is a great time to start thinking about your pre-wedding shoot.
I’ll be posting a blog next week to help you start thinking about what style and location is right for you. If you have any ideas I’m always eager to hear them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally a big thank-you to Kat, whose blog and posts have thrown a few enquiries my way! Here she is with a lovely little hat:
Wanna see a few more of my photos he took? Go on then – what a lucky girl I am…
Boudoir Shoot/ Engagement Shoot/ Post-Wedding Bridal Shoot…
Katy and Drew got married on the 16th of August this year in a Philidephia art gallery. They we also married in a local park by one of their friends.
Katy used Etsy to source many items at cost effective prices including these gorgous bridesmaid headpieces. (sorry I don’t know the actual seller boo)
This wedding has been featured elsewhere but I couldn’t not post – it’s too gorgeous!
I am in love with the colours they chose – and I have a bit of an obsession with that green mac eyeliner! (I have it plus 3 other colours!)
And to top it all off…gorgeous Bridesmaids and dresses – regular readers will know I’m all about the mis-matching Bridesmaid dresses!
What a stunning couple (and what impecable taste!)
Yey! Noa from Feather Love Weddings has sent me her most Rock and Rolly wedding for me to feature, and it’s a beauty!
This is the wedding of Julia and Dusty – regulars on the music scene in San Diego…so the perfect candidates for a Rock ‘n Roll Wedding right?
Lady Dottie and the Diamonds (a very popular blues rock band in San Diego) played, the Groom is a musician and about half the guests were in some sort of band…perfecto!
The tables were labeled by albums – some of the Bride & Groom’s classic favorites like Patti Smith, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton (questionable!) Cream etc. The photographer, Noa, also did some very “great gatsby” vintagey type photos, and also did a few with her Holga Camera too (I just love the style of these don’t you!?)
Here we go with the porn then..enjoy…
Don’t you just love the retro-but-awesome medium of Polaroid? They just make me want to get all creative and snappy!
I also flippin’ love the felt flowers by Princess Lasertron. I have seen these flowers in a number of Rock ‘n Roll Weddings recently… maybe they are the new fake moustaches?
Check out this gorgeously exotic Bride and wedding location. You gotta love the photobooth styleee right? (and the Bride’s stunning short, simple attire).
How can you not simply adore these images by One Love Photo? Intimate, serene and totally natural..sigh…I am particularly obsessed with the ballerina set – is this dress not the most gorgeous ballerina princess thing you’ve ever seen?
Gorgeous, Cool, Tattooed…
