Acid Brights

I found Olya & Denis’ wonderful anniversary shoot, taken by Russian photographer Zaporozhets Sergey and knew I had to feature it. I know someone is going to fall in love with this girl’s acid bright neon and purple Asya Zhukova dress and her fab homemade birdcage-style-veil. This shoot looks like an utter blast!

Edit: Be sure to check out their wedding video after the jump – it’s awesome!

Ashley & Hunter’s Brightly Coloured Wedding

Ashley & Hunter’s wedding had me smitten as soon as I saw it. They went for a fun fair theme with brightly coloured and fun pinwheels, noise makers, rock candy, pumpkins and a BBQ from Buz n Neds Barbeque. This pair both have a self-confessed obsession with shoes so Ashley wore an amazing pair from Betsey Johnson with a Marilyn Monroe portrait on the sole and Hunter wore red, black and white high top Vans that matched their brightly colored wedding…the bridesmaids even wore red pumps to match.

Ashley dress was by Alvina Valenta which she teamed it with an amazing antique brooch which she found at Ant Hill Antiques in Carytown in Richmond, Va. Their flowers were vibrant and sunny to match the theme and the bridesmaids all wore their own purple mis-matched dresses.

Hell Yeah Balloons are Punk Rock

Anthony & Shealyn were actually not engaged at the time the session took place. However, just a week after the shoot they realized that they just could not live without each other and got engaged!  I am so smitten with this session – the purple and yellow look oh so fabulous together and the couple are too damn funky for words. Photographer Sheri told me all about the day:

Other than specifying that they’d like incorporate purple balloons (which Anthony brought to Shealyn on their first date) we were left to our own creative devices. I was inspired by their edgy style and chose backdrops that would make them pop. I like the contrast of their hard, black style against the softness of the beach and the lightheartedness of the balloons.

We walked back to their apartment and they suggested hopping into the pool… mind you this was early January and cold even by San Diego standards.

An Extra Special, Stylish & Quirky British Wedding

The UK is seriously on fire this week and I’ve got another fantastic British wedding so share with you. However this one is extra extra special as Sally & Peter actually found their photographer, Kate, through Rock n Roll Bride! Woo to the Hoo!

Kate talked all about Sally & Peter and their wonderfully eclectic day on her own blog: 

Sally and Peter have been together for about 18 months and about 6 months ago, during a game of scrabble, Peter proposed! While Sally was out of the room Peter stole several of the letters and when the time was right spelt out the words ‘marry me’. This explains Sally’s choice of earrings on the wedding day – The S&P are from the actual set they played.

The Real World

I know I get seemingly over excited with everything I blog, but when Rock n Roll Bride gets to bring you exclusive first shows of weddings like this can you blame me?!

Audra & Bryan’s wedding is modern, sexy, uber stylish and crazy full of love! The event took place at Me by Melia which was recently the home to the cast of The Real World. Andra looks stunning in her cute dress which she got from Nordstroms.

Enjoy little ones…

Purple Rain

Featuring UK weddings makes me happy. Not only because I know being a British blogger makes me stand out from the crowd, but because it makes me so happy that us Brits are finally catching up to our American friends in the style stakes! Therefore to celebrate I’m going to blog not one, but two awesome UK weddings today (and a little bit of California dreamin’ at the end of the day – sorry I can’t resist it.)

I’m kicking off with a wedding that’s not only fabulously unique but the bride is in a purple dress! It was actually an Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dress but certainly did the job as a glamorous and unique bridal outfit.

♥ For those of you who don’t follow me on facebook or twitter, I was featured in Cosmopolitan Bride magazine this month! I didn’t know Miranda the lovely Editor was planning on mentioning me so I got way too over excited to see myself in there! To celebrate this quite frankly amazing issue – the best I’ve ever seen from them – and with the magazine’s consent, I’ll be scanning and sharing some of my favourite pages from the mag sometime over the weekend so that all of my lovely American readers can see what they’re missing out on!  Thanks again to Miranda and her fabulous team!

♥ Aaand Woo! the Maggie Sottero website used a photo and bio of me in my dress! I submitted it thinking it may be a bit too ‘out-there’ for them but seems I doubted them wrongly – Maggie you rock!

Green – The New Red?

I think this year green may be the new colour de jour for rock n roll brides. I have been sent a couple of gorgeous green girlies recently…do I see a new trend emerging? You will probably remember Amy from her stunning bridals that I shared recently. Well photographer Brandi was nice enough to send me Amy & Aarons’s full wedding to report. I am crazy about the florals (I’ll probably never tire of peacock feather bouquets!), the bridesmaid’s and groomsmen’s awesome purple combos which looks fab against Amy… and still of course, her shoes!

Their Punk Rock Wedding

This is going to sound more than a little bit weird but I almost don’t want to blog these because once I do it will be done and I will be sad that the anticipation, excitement and exhilaration (I’m a very dramatic person) I have been feeling leading up to posting these will be gone. Yes I am very strange…

You might recognise Automne & Graham as one of the finalists in the Tinywater contest I ran a few months ago. As soon as I saw their entry I knew they were a completely awesome punk rock couple and that their wedding would be fab but OH. My. GOD nothing prepared me for this! I am so honoured and excited that the couple have chosen Rock n Roll Bride to be the lucky blog who gets to share their wedding and all the amazing details. Exclusives rock! I seriously want to cover this post with kisses, love and hearts ♥ ♥ ♥
