Agony Aunt Anna – Purple Problems

Woohoo. New feature alert! I’ve decided that Saturday’s are going to become guest post days. I’ve always shied away from featuring guest posters before because…well…let’s be honest I’m a control freak and am very particular about what I like (just ask my husband!) BUT I’ve got a few reasons for changing my mind and introducing this new concept to the site. Therefore I thought it’d be cool to share my thought process with you all before we get going – and I’m going to be honest (because as we know, that’s me!)

I am crazy busy. Like mo’ fo’ crazy. By posting things other people can contribute it will mean I’ve got one less day of posts to write myself!

Don’t worry though, I’m not going to be accepting guest writers left right and centre. I have a very select and specific breed of invited writers coming on board to help me, all of which have got very specific areas of expertise and who can teach you/inspire you with some really cool stuff (we hope!)

And finally, more specifically to the Agony Aunt posts, even though being busy is awesome it does mean that if any of you email me your wedding queries or questions I simply just don’t have the time I’d like to devote to answering you all in as much depth as I could…so that’s where Aunt Anna comes in. So, I’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Rock n Roll Bride family, some of you may know her already, and those of you who don’t, we’ll you’re sure going to love her soon enough.

Somewhere over the Rainbow

“Somewheeeere over the raaaainbow…waaaay up hiiigh”

Oh yes I do love The Wizard of Oz and when I saw Eagen & Jason’s wedding and it’s nods to Oz, I knew it was perfect for a little blogging. What I love particularly about the wedding is that the theme hasn’t taken over the day – it’s not cheesy, it’s not crass, it’s not cringy – they have just included a few subtle nods to the movie in an oh so stylish way. The emerald (city) bridemaid dresses,the table names, the sparkly ‘Dorothy’ shoes.

Come Fly With Me…

Follwing the popularlity of the 80’s themed engagement shoot I featured on Tuesday, I wanted to share Emma & Micheal’s cabin crew themed session sent over by the wonderful Julia Boggio (who also shot my Vintage Boudoir session.)

When Emma told Julia her idea about doing her pre-wedding shoot in the Virgin Atlantic rig, she jumped at the chance! “After all, Daniel Craig had been filmed in the rig for one of the Bond films and where Daniel goes, well, I go.” Julia told me. With Emma living in the UK and Micheal in the US, Virgin Atlantic played a huge role in their relationship so far – ferrying them both back and forth across the pond. “Emma contacted Virgin about her idea and they were more than happy to oblige. ” Julia continued “They love a good love story! The Virgin Atlantic rig, or Miss Rigorous, as she is named, is used mostly for training purposes at VA. It’s an entire interior of a Virgin plane. Because the rig is quite dark and the lighting is suitable for an airplane, not a photo shoot, I had to come to the party equipped with loads of Broncolor lighting, colour gels, and an assistant. Emma rented an old style hostess outfit and Michael played the role of lusty Business Class passenger. We had a great deal of fun and I’m really looking forward to their wedding later this summer.”

Breaking The Mould

It’s such an honour to be the first blog to share this amazingly themed engagement session by Joy Marie! Karnis & Alex really wanted to break the pre-wedding shoot mould and so came up with the awesome creative concept of dressing up like some of their favourite iconic images and heroes. Who can you spot?

Thanks to Joy for sharing these with us!

A Western Vintage Vacation

After posting Jenn & Skip’s engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding – and I guess I was right. They went for a western/vintage vacation theme which was helped along by all their friends and family, not only dressing up for the day, but by helping the couple to DIY the lot!

Jenn made her own veil and fascinator, the invitations, her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the cake, the decorations and the signs. Skip made his own Groom’s cake – a bowling ball and pins – and helped Jenn wherever she needed it! Jenn’s sister and maid of honour made all the cute cupcakes and each Bridesmaid maid their own fascinators. The couple decided not to include anybody in their wedding that they didn’t know – so they had a friend perform the ceremony and other friends chip in with food, hair and make up.

I am obsessed with themed things, so naturally the wedding had to have a theme. Our overall theme was “vintage vacation”. From there we had mini-themes inside the big one. The brides cake and cupcakes were woodland (to go with the mountains). The suggested attire was western. The groomsmen and Dads wore western shirts. The bridesmaids wore headpieces and carried fans, saloon girl style. Both the bride and groom wore cowboy boots (which we already owned)… the groom also had spurs, the hat, the whole shebang! Our favors were vacation & western themed, as well as our decorations, popcorn & candy bar.

Insead of dancing, the wedding was rounded off with fun and games including eating doughnuts on a string, two photobooths, a candy and a popcorn bar.

Wow! Jenn & Skip I am blown away by your wedding. Thanks so much for sharing it!

A Western Vintage Vacation

After posting Jenn & Skip's engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding - and I guess I was right.
