Traditional Wedding? No Thank You!

8

This post is for wedding photographers, etsy sellers, dress makers, florists, cake makers, wedding planners, venues, bridal boutiques… in fact anyone that runs a wedding business that wants to work with our readers.

Rock n Roll Bride magazine is not only THE ONLY print magazine for alternative brides, but its one of the best selling wedding magazines in the whole of the UK. In a world where people say ‘print is dead’ Rock n Roll Bride magazine is growing (we like to buck traditions in more ways than one it would seem). This month alone our sales are up 20%!

Advertising in Rock n Roll Bride magazine will not only get your business in front of the exact type of clients that you’re desperate to work with, but it supports what we do. We’re not a big team. We don’t have fancy offices or do long lunches over cocktails (although the wine does often come out at 6pm!) However what we do do is work our butts off every day. We’re fiercely passionate about inspiring our readers, but also supporting awesome alternative wedding businesses wherever possible.

Our advertising prices still start from a ridiculously affordable £50. We’ve purposely kept our rates low so that YOU, those smaller, indie brands who are desperately trying to get the word out about what you do, can afford them.

Heartbreak Hotel: An Elvis & Priscilla Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Elvis & Priscilla Wedding Shoot

Jacket: Next Shoes: Faith Bodysuit: ASOS Rings: House of Bourgeois from Folly Boutique

One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

Dress & Top: Poppy Dover Shoes: Charlotte Mills

This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.

Rock n Roll Bride Magazine Issue 12 Available for Pre-Order Today!

rocknrollbride-magazine-issue-12-cover

Did you have a fabulous Christmas? I sure hope so! I’m getting super excited for 2017 now, not least of all because the brand new issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine hits the newsstands on January 5th. However if you’d prefer to stay inside and hide from the frigid weather you can pre-order your copy from us right now. It costs the same as in shops, £4.99, and UK delivery is still completely and utterly FREE. Can you believe that we’ve now done TWELVE ISSUES? That’s two whole years of Rock n Roll Bride in print!

So, what’s inside this anniversary edition? Well, first of all we need to stop and bow down at the beauty of this cover. Some of you may recognise at least one half of this gorgeous pair, because it’s fashion blogger Nicolette Mason. She married Ali in Brooklyn and I am THRILLED BEYOND BELIEF to have them as our first ever same sex cover stars! Being inclusive is something I’m super passionate about and I’m so happy that this incredible image, taken by Clean Plate Pictures, is gracing the cover. Their full wedding story is featured inside. I can’t wait for you to read it and, of course, swoon over all the gorgeous details (spoiler: they only used female or LGBT wedding vendors!)

Each one of the 11 exclusive real weddings featured within this issue is amazing and totally different to each other. So whatever style of wedding you’re having you’re sure to find some ideas you’d love to steal. We have a retro, nautical inspired day, a gothic autumn wedding, one where there were owls as the guests of honour and another where they said “I do” on top of a glacier… And that’s just for starters!
