Rustic Retro with a Diy Charm

Fanni & Ben got married in April at Cripps Barn in Gloucestershire. Bored by the usual wedding stuff they found in magazines and at wedding shows, the pair turned to the internet for inspiration and luckily for them stumbled upon not only Rock n Roll Bride but a plethora of amazing ideas via some awesome American wedding blogs. “Back at the drawing board, I found myself scanning an array of American wedding blogs. All of which featured jaw-droppingly gorgeous weddings that looked amazing but had little or no information about weddings in the UK, and then I stumbled across your site!” Fanni told me “From that day on, Rock n Roll Bride truly was a breath of fresh air for me from everything else I had seen out there previously. Your site was reassuring that we didn’t have to be confined to the norm or do things a certain way because it was tradition. Our wedding was our day, our way. We wanted our guests to have the best time and not be left thinking that they were just at….’another textbook wedding.’ So, with much planning and evenings spent beavering away we managed to pull it all together.”

Ben is in a band so they wanted to make music a bit part of their day. Ben organised all the music and included everything they love – from modern rock songs played as string quartet versions (for while guests arrived) to the song that Fanni walked down the aisle to, which was ‘One day like this’ by Elbow. Their ceremony song was ‘When I’m 64’ by the Beatles, “which was rather unusual” Fanni said “but our guests fully embraced it and sang at the top of their lungs… a truly awesome moment.”

Sweet Tooth

I actually featured newbie photographer Shannon McLaughlin‘s own wedding¬† waaaay back in¬†February – many of you may recognise her as Mrs Candy Corn from Wedding Bee. Well, like many of us recent brides, the thought of giving up all things wedding once¬†she’d tied the knot was too much to bear so she decided to venture into wedding photography herself…and oh how pleased we are that she did! She has only had her professional camera for a little over a month and look how awesome she is already!

The recently engaged Veronika & Bryan acted as models for this shoot. Veronika owns her own vintage shop called Sweet Tooth Vintage¬†through the fabulous Etsy so she had lots of amazing outfits to wear. I am also loving the various props and locations used for this shoot – an environmental centre in Philadelphia, the couple’s own home (including their insane number of pets!) and a cuuuute tandem bike!

Make it Perfect

Isn’t this just one gorgeous couple? They seriously should be models methinks! Photographer Amelia travel to Utah to shoot this ‘engagement’ (the couple are actually already married, but hey¬†why has a fact like¬†that gotta stop you?!) I really do love props like the old books and the suitcases. They can make or break a shoot and these have certainly made it perfect.

A Geeky, Offbeat, Tea Party, Country Wedding!

Boy oh boy…I have to say there is a hell lot of wedding awesomeness flying in and around my inbox this week. I have been inundated with so many emails of gorgeousness that it really has been hard to keep up. Fret not though as I do plan on blogging all of the beauty at some point!

Right now, well what can I say that could possibly live up to these? The very lovely Rosalie of the Tea and Whimsy blog booked my buddy David McNeil for her wedding to Jamie last month. She has gone over all the details, budget saving tricks (they only spent about ¬£4000/$6000¬†on¬†the whole thing!)¬†and DIY gems on her site, but I’m just here to share the swoonfest that is these photographs…oh and to draw your attention to her freakin’ awesome bouquet! Yes those are real (dyed) roses!
