A Grocery Store Engagement Shoot: Colleen & Mike

This grocery shopping engagement shoot made me giggle. It’s not often I see a supermarket looking so chic and cool. In fact I love it so much that I’m even considering not doing my usual ‘let’s put off the food shopping until all we have left in our cupboards is mayonnaise and gin…’ dance and popping down to my local store right now to see what inspiration is lurking among the tins of beans and frozen peas…

“We didn’t want your typical ‘day in the park/vintage picnic’ engagement session, so we picked our favorite corner grocery store that has a bit of an offbeat feel to it,” Colleen told me. “The sandwiches at their deli counter are killer and while you wait for them to prepare your food you can sit in their lounge area and catch up on some reading, play retro Atari or peruse the aisles for random groceries and delicious libations. The store has a retro feel to it, so we chose our wardrobe to reflect that 50s grocer feel. We both live in the area and have loved their sandwiches for years. Mike’s favorite sandy is the Baron Rodgers and mine is the Frukwine- yum!”

The DIY/Crafty List

Getting crafty can be fun, but a girl needs the right tools, right?  Some staples that I think every diy bride might find more handy than her handiwork itself.

Bring back the excitement of receiving letters in snail mail format and send your save the dates out in traditional airmail envelopes or use them as place names with some pretty calligraphy and a little letter inside to each of your friends and family with a sweet story or memory.

Why hello December, you snuck up on us real fast didn’t you?! I’m not quite ready to get proper festive just yet, but here’s my usual conglomerate of candy sweetness to keep you going until I am.

♥ How had I let Cliché magazine pass me by?! Plus my friend Lara Jade (well online friend… I like to fantasise that we are actually buddies) is thrice featured! So much swoon
♥ I may not be ready for Crimbo yet but I’m sure some of you would like help with your shopping. This is the definitive playgirl shopping list
DIY engagement shoot. I love.
Valentino. Yes please.
♥ A simple yet and wonderful seaside wedding
♥ Girlie, ruffled, gorgeous
The Groom style to beat all groom style. Three words – Velvet. Teal. Jacket.
Take your blog to a whole new level
♥ I want to eat this
♥ Freakin’ kick ass wedding polaroids (via a desert fete)
♥ What cool and awesome reception details!
♥ Beautiful 1920’s inspired wedding shoot
♥ 17 crazily gorgeous and completely unique business card ideas (via Princess Lasertron)
♥ OMG this dress! I can’t wait to see more of this wedding…
♥ Cinematic & awe-inspiring shoot
♥ Hee hee! Tea cup with little legs!
♥ UK photographers, Tino & Pip are desperate for an awesome Rock n Roll couple’s wedding to shoot. Therefore they are offering half price coverage to a deserving and rockin’ couple!
♥ This is not a new article, but a friend of mine sent this to me to cheer me up. Feeling jealous of other people’s success and inadequate with what I’m doing with Rock n Roll Bride is part of the job of trying to make a success of your own business I guess! Don’t be different, be unique! (Thanks Andri – mwah)
♥ If you are still on the hunt for quirky, unique & adorable bridesmaid dresses then look no further than Quail Bridal. I am currently having a love affair with the teal ‘toasting’ dress
♥ I love these authentic vintage touches
♥ I just had to share this image shot by The Nichols from Sarah & Jaime’s wedding. After pink, this shade of green is my favourite colour ever. For the full report head over to Green Wedding Shoes later today.

♥ Shhh! An incognito New York Photographer is running a photo shoot contest. Incognito because they are keeping their identity a secret so not so influence the entries they receive. They say,
In an effort to only attract the most creative, I have decided to remain anonymous. I do not want contestants going to my website for inspiration on what they think I may be looking for. I want them to be creative and original. I realize that this is unorthodox, but I truly believe this will enable me to find the type of contestants I seek.

I would love it if a Rock n Roll couple won this. Come on you can do it!

The Mold Breakers Contest

♥ Living TV are still on the look out for a Rock n Roll couple to take part in the next series of Four Weddings. If you’re in the UK and getting hitched between now and March then get in touch! For anyone who hasn’t seen the show before, here’s the info from the production team:

We are casting for the second series of “Four weddings” which see’s 4 brides attending each others’ weddings as guests and they will judge & score the day as a whole based on four categories, The Dress, The Food, The Venue and The Overall Experience. The scores are not disclosed amongst the other brides until after all the weddings when it will be revealed whose wedding has been judged the best! The bride with the highest score at the end of the show will win a Luxury dream honeymoon.
We would really love a real variety of weddings celebrating different cultures and personal interests.We would love to include a gothic wedding or burlesque wedding, however we’re open to all sorts of weddings.This wedding would need to be taking place in December, January or February.
