I love doing photo shoots for the magazine. It is legit my favourite part of my job. It has been a dream of mine for a good few years to get commissioned to put together a wedding shoot abroad and this issue it finally happened! The fabulous people at Marriott, hired us to shoot a wedding and lifestyle editorial for their brand-new properly, W Algarve, which just opened this month.

I’ll be sharing more about the behind the scenes of the shoot itself soon, but the images are featured inside issue 45, which went on pre-sale today! Pre-ordering your copy means you’ll be one of the first to get yours when it’s released (first week of July) so hop to it and grab yours or subscribe right now.

Love Sustained: An Eco Wedding Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Having an issue dedicated to all things eco and sustainable, meant that for this shoot we only wanted to work with brands with this core ethos behind them too. All the items featured in this editorial come from brands putting sustainably at the forefront of everything they do. Whether that’s selling second-hand or vintage pieces, using 100% recycled or recyclable materials, or employing manufacturing processes that are kinder to the planet.

The location we shot at, room2 in Chiswick, was chosen because it’s the world’s first whole life net zero hotel! The hotel uses 89% less energy per m2 compared to typical UK hotels, and it is the first hotel in the world to fully account for its entire carbon footprint, making it ‘whole life net zero’.

Renewable energy is maximised on site with solar and ground source heat pumps, which convert 100% of the energy needed for heating, cooling and hot water and the rooms have ultra-low flow pressure showers (which use less water) and ultra-energy efficient lighting and appliances.

The hotel has a zero-waste policy (and is the first UK hotel to introduce food waste into its in-room recycling bins). Even the roof space has been maximised for sustainability; 200 tonnes of soil and wildflowers have been planted up there to increase biodiversity and absorb CO2, along with beehives and bug hotels!

Self-love, body positivity, feeling confident being in the skin you’re in – it’s such a huge roadblock for so many of us and there’s so much to unpack, where do we even begin? And that’s not even taking into account how much your self-worth can nose-dive when you get engaged and realise how much toxic bullshit is (still) so prevalent in the wedding industry!

The brand-new issue of the magazine is now available for pre-order (they begin shipping next week!) and we’ve themed it around this very important topic. We want you to feeling like your most fabulous self while planning your wedding and we hope this collection of articles, accompanied by stunning inspirational imagery, will help you with exactly that.

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito” – The Dalai Lama

Can I be honest with you? I am really nervous about putting out this issue of the magazine. Why? Because I am terrified of getting it wrong.

As someone who has spent a lot of time on the Internet, and has experienced first-hand what happens when an angry mob attack you for not upholding an absolutely impossible standard of moral perfection, it’s scary to speak up about a topic like sustainability and environmentalism. The fear of getting dragged across the Internet for making a potential misstep has stopped me from even trying in the past.

But the truth of the matter is none of us are perfect, least of all me! None of us is getting it 100% right all the time, and unless you live off the land, eat vegan, don’t have a phone, never use anything plastic, don’t drive a car, wouldn’t dare consume fast food, never buy any piece of fast fashion and you don’t have or plan to have children (one of the worst things you can do for the planet is add more people to it!); then you are not perfect either.

The Black Parade: A Gothic Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Issue 41, the gothic issue, featured one of my all time favourite shoots (do I always say this? Yes, probably!) We wanted to elevate the idea of a gothic bride and to create a shoot with a high end, high fashion feel, yet something still super attainable for anyone wanting to embrace the dark side.

Its important to us that the shoots we put together for the magazine aren’t just beautiful, but that they feature wearable pieces which you can incorporate into your own wedding day look, whether you’re going for something more traditional with a subtle gothic twist or you want to be a full-on gothic princess.

Our stunning non-binary model, Nan, has albinism and when we found them, we know they were the perfect face to bring our gothic meets high fashion vision to life.

Here are all the looks we put together:

LOOK ONE

Skirt & Top: Sweet Caroline Styles via Rock the Frock
Crown & Claws: Carbickova Crowns

LOOK TWO

Dress with Detachable Cape: Kimberly Phillips Clothier
Veil: Holly Winter Couture
Rings: Kipkalinka

Issue 42: We’re Starting 2022 off With a Colourful Bang!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

January can be such a dreary time of year but not at Rock n Roll Bride magazine, oh no! We were determined to start the new year off with a positive bang and what could be more positive than a magazine cover like this!? We’ve done a complete 180 on the last issue – going from all things dark and gothic to all the colours of the rainbow!

And guess what? This is also a BUMPER ISSUE which means it has more pages and more content than usual, all for the same bargain price of less than £6! YAY!

Our starting off point for putting the content for this together was the shoot, and we’re beyond stoked to share our first ever male cover star with you! We’ve had the idea of playing with colour and gender norms for a while so we were thrilled to finally be able to make it happen. Our model, Kit, was the perfect person to bring our vision to life. He loved playing dress up and seeing his face light up when we told him he was in big colourful dresses was just so wonderful!

The super-saturated colour palettes were so fun to put together and after such a tough, dreary few years, we can’t think of anything better – anything more needed – than going into 2022 making a bold and bright statement.
