Sustainable Bridal Fashion from Bowen Dryden: Introducing The Poem Collection

Looking for a wedding dress that’s unique (duh!), beautiful but also kind to the planet? Then you are going to adore Bowen Dryden‘s newest offering, which just dropped last week! The Poem collection features billowing tiered dresses, coat dresses, hot pants, palazzo pants and cropped tops.

Bowen Dryden have spent over two years working on this collection, from the initial research stages to gaining knowledge and sourcing organic cotton fabrics from ethically grown crops without pesticides to keeping every part of the garment bio-degradable. Conscientiously designing these sustainable garments so that they can easily be worn again. Even the buttons are ingeniously manufactured in cotton, the garment label is embroidered and the swing tags are recycled seedling paper tied with hessian. All materials used are fully compostable, too.

A Carefree & Gender-Fluid Elopement

Imagine what your wedding could be like if you had no-one else but yourselves to please. If you could wear what you wanted, invite who you wanted and spend the day exactly as you liked, no questions asked. This doesn’t have to be a fantasy and although these images are from a photo shoot rather than a real ceremony, I think they’re going to inspire you to look to yourselves for your wedding concept and ideas, rather than getting lost in a world of Pinterest boards and Facebook groups!

“Together we made a point to focus this shoot on the newlyweds and their relationship with each other”, explained photographer Peyton Olivia. “This shoot showcases a carefree style of wedding ceremony. Stepping out of the bounds of traditional marriage procedures allows for non-denominational affiliation, the acceptance of chosen family members, rather than biological, and the growing gender fluid aspects of a more modern age.”

Neon Dreams for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

One of the most creative and enjoyable shoots we’ve ever produced, one of my favourite models we’ve worked with and at one of my favourite locations. Seriously, our editorial and cover image for issue 29 was a DREAM to put together. I really do have the BEST team in the world.

You will have seen the Neon Dreams shoot in print already but, as always, there were hundreds of beautiful shots that didn’t make the spread. So, I wanted to share more of them with you today!

You can still grab a copy of this issue if you missed it here. We have very few left though so if you want one, hop to it!

I said it when we launched this issue, but I feel like I should say it again: I am so damn proud of what we achieved with this shoot. Not, just the technical aspects of shooting with neons (let’s face it, that was all Lisa!) but by working with a transgender model, Talulah Eve.

The whole reason Rock n Roll Bride magazine exists is to give a platform for anyone who doesn’t feel like they fit in… anyone that doesn’t feel represented in the mainstream wedding media. If you feel like an outsider then we welcome you with open arms!

Pink Power: A Pink on Pink on Pink Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

I’ve wanted to do an all-pink bridal shoot for a long time, Like, my team and I were probably discussing it for a year or so before we actually managed to do it! Turns out you guys agreed that it was a great idea – the cover for this issue was one of the most commented, shared and liked of the year and this issue is now completely sold out! WOW.

I love using colour as the basis for our shoots and this one is one of my all time favourites. I’m obviously a pink kinda gal, and if you too fancy rocking your signature colour down the aisle instead of traditional white, I hope these images will inspire you,

As always, now the issue is off-sale, I wanted to share some more shots that didn’t quite make the print spread because there’s always so many great photos that it’d be a travesty to keep them to ourselves! Enjoy!

Non-Binary Steven Universe Inspired Wedding Shoot

Inspired by the wonderful Steven Universe, a GLAAD award-winning series well-loved for its positive representation of LGBTQ+ themes in a nuanced and non-preachy way, this is the kind of wedding shoot we want to see more of!! Capturing something playful, colourful and creative (just like the show) in a way that will absolutely appeal to the Rock n Roll crowd.

“Although LGBTQ+ representation in the wedding industry has improved in recent years, the majority of images in wedding media still focus on cisgender, heterosexual couples”, writes shoot collaborator Beth of Madame B’s Boutique. “In particular, non-binary folks are rarely seen in wedding blogs or magazines and I felt this shoot would be a great opportunity to play with people’s perceptions of the gender binary in weddings. Why must there always be a white dress or a dark suit? Why only focus on two colours when you have the whole spectrum to play with?”

A Surrealist, Colour Crazy Carnival Inspired Shoot

It’s 2019, so obviously you’re aware that styling your wedding no longer means having sleepless nights over what Auntie Maude will think of your choice of complementary bridesmaid dresses or meticulously matching the exact shade of sage green of your napkins to – well, anything. You’re fully aware that it’s a-okay to wear a black dress, rock a floral suit or dye your hair pink if you want to. I’d bet you’re constantly tagged in posts about unicorn fashion / rainbow cake / other slightly out-dated but once-alternative fashions by well-meaning but slightly clueless friends and family as the token ~Colourful One~. But when it comes to actually using colour in your big day, are you feeling stumped with where to start and how to get achieve the perfect balance between insta-worthy colour clash and a big old mess?

Queen of colour, photographer Vicki White is back today with another spectacular styled shoot full of eye-gaugeingly bright inspo for how to inject colour into your wedding day. Joined by over 20 different suppliers all with one goal in mind; if it was weird and wonderful and more suited to a carnival that a country hotel, it could stay!
