A Post Apocalyptic Viking Wedding Re-Shoot

After not getting the photos they really hoped for at their actual wedding, Anastasia and Kenny decided to do a shoot to re-stage their day to do just that! They chose Moreton Corbet Castle as the location, Fran Hansen to do the most insane (in a good way) viking inspired makeup on them both and Birgitta Zoutman to take the photos.

“For our ceremony we wanted something from the heart and soul, and we were drawn to waterfalls for the handfasting location”, Anastasia explained. “Our re-shoot was an amalgamation of themes that we both loved, merging the possibility of a post-apocalyptic dystopian future with Norse / Celtic heritage. The idea that if society crumbles, once the electricity fades, the last battery runs flat and the gods of technology abandoned us. Mankind will turn again to the old gods for guidance and protection.”

A Covid Inspired Editorial with Floral Masks

This isn’t your typical styled wedding shoot… which is why we love it! A team of wedding suppliers from Baltimore wanted to get together to create something to reflect how they, and others in the events industry may be feeling during a global pandemic. They also wanted to showcase this ‘new normal’ that we’re all experiencing, but in a really beautiful way.

The idea was the brainchild of Kate Ansari, the owner of Haven Street Ballroom She had the forethought to create a shoot around the new concept of having to wear a mask, and even if you have to on your wedding day, it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or unstylish. In fact, these photos make us want to rush out and stock up on masks to match every outfit we own TBH!

Queen for a Day Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Originally published in issue 30 of Rock n Roll Bride magazine (Jan/Feb 2020), our ‘Queen for a Day’ editorial was all about celebrating how fierce you are going to be as you sashay down the aisle. We wanted to use giant crowns, gold and some really unique florals. As soon as we found the stunning Fitzrovia Chapel, a bedazzled little jewel of a place hidden away in the streets not far from Oxford Circus, we knew it was the ideal location. Oh, and in case you were in any doubt, a big fuck off crown is always a good idea!

OK, on with the shoot! Model [aka the Queen]; Anu was the perfect muse for this shoot – WHAT. A. BABE!

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!
