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

Whether you love to dance, pizza is your favourite food, or you just want to bring a splash of colour into your day; we think you’re going to love this editorial created by wedding planners BLAST Concept, based in Spain and Holland.

Gender-Neutral Fairytale Wedding Inspiration

Photographer Annie Walter and bridal-wear designer Jay Whitestone loved the idea of creating a fairy-tale inspired styled shoot that focused on playing with gender roles. “Jay was inspired by her beautiful wife,” Annie told us, “and the want to bring an element of romance and historical drama to androgynous wedding attire. Her garments are suitable for any gender identity, as she believes that on one of the biggest days of your life, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than being you.” An ethos we can get on board with!

Shot in the Wild Garden of Sprowston Lodge near Norwich, Annie was inspired by an ancient apple tree, dreaming of decorating a set all around it. Florist Charlotte Staff filled the branches full of flowers, and then from there even more creatives collaborated with them for the project, with ceramic-mushroom centrepieces from Pale & Interesting, and a stag-horn crown from Mystic Magic Masquerade adding to the fairy-tale nature. The stars of the show were owls from Evie’s Owls

Let Love Sparkle: French Laundromat Disco Wedding Inspiration

At Rock n Roll Bride, we’re firm believers in finding beauty in the every day, but finding beauty in a laundromat might be a first even for us! Bare with us though, as you’ll see from the images that with the right styling, literally anywhere can be a vibe when you throw enough rock n roll at it.

Together with photographer Anne Letournel, Matthieu from Marions Nous Dans Les Bois wild wedding films wanted to create some original wedding inspiration, choosing a vintage laundromat in Rennes, Brittany as their location; a place with an authentic atmosphere that perfectly juxtaposed their disco theme for a completely crazy wedding.

Rainbows, Butterflies, Milkshakes & The Viral Selkie Puff Dress

If you so much as glace at social media these days it’s highly likely that you’ll have come across Selkie, their their puff dresses have been going all kinds of viral since last year. And not without due cause, their hyper feminine princess fairy princess aesthetic is right up our street. As soon as we saw their dresses in fact we knew they would be perfect for a bride, even though they’re not really wedding dresses (who cares when they’re this pretty, huh!?) So, we’re super thrilled that Cassandra Daye Photography felt the same and put this shoot together using the gawwwjus Rainbow Puff dress.

Cassandra told us all about it, “I wanted to create something with Olivia and Josh that was fun, playful and unique, but also represented everyone’s style and personality. Cue the iridescent rainbows and streamers, pastels and disco balls, balloons and roller skates, pink guitars and unicorn milkshakes!”

Rollercoaster: Bright meets Retro Amusement Park Elopement Inspo

When Emily Zamora of Simply Wandering Photo got in touch with this styled shoot submission, we loved it not only for the gorgeous, fun pops of colour, but also for the unique styling concept! Emily told us; “The incredibly talented Abbey Rose Event Design with the concept of styling a wedding after a song.”

“Growing up in a household of musicians, music has always been a large part of Abbey’s life, so turning to music to inspire her was an obvious step. The song she chose was Rollercoaster by Bleachers. She wanted to incorporate the fun upbeat melody by adding in pops of colour and fun/vibrant elements throughout the day. And what better place to host such a celebration than at an actual working amusement park with rollercoasters.” We’re sure lots of you will resonate with Abbey’s love of music – is there a particular song that could inspire your day?
