Brand New Contest – Win A Felt, Button Bouquet!

Ooooh I am excited and super pleased to be able to bring you another fabulous Rock n Roll Bride contest and the lovely Jennifer from Ribbons n Bows Boutique has kindly donated a fabulous black, white & pink felt, button bouquet as the prize….here it is, isn’t it awesome? In fact I kinda want it!

So what do you have to do to enter I hear you cry? Well it’s simple…I’m after a new slogan for the site.聽 I’m getting a little bored of ‘Wedding Inspiration..In a Rock n Roll Way’ and I’m lacking inspiration myself.聽 The only constraint is that I still want the phrase ‘Rock n Roll’ to be in there somewhere.聽 So hit me with it!聽 Put your entry in the comment section of this post and my favourite will not only win the bouquet, but will become the creator of my slogan to be used on all Rock n Roll Bride stuff…fab huh?

Vana & Damien – The Love Story

Good morning guys. I am very excited today to share the love story of Vana & Damien, our fabulous competition winners.聽 I can’t wait to go to their wedding in November…they are just such an awesome couple.

Come on then guys…tell me all about yourselves!

When I first聽met Damien I was 12 and hanging around聽outside my music class.聽

I spotted this cute聽boy with that聽odd 90’s curtain haircut that was all the rage (why?!) But obviously being 15 (so much older and聽 more sophisticated) he had no idea I was even聽alive.

At 15 I’d acquired a couple of things that made me noticeable *ahem* – and we started dating. It was a brief summer聽thing which ended when Damien moved to Bristol. I cried in my bedroom listening to聽Slayers – Undisputed Attitude for about a week, before vowing to chop my hair off, move to London聽and become a punk. Which I subsequently did a year later – oh the folly of youth!

Almost a decade later Damien got my e-mail address from a random mutual friend, and got back in touch with me. We e-mailed back and forth, and chatted on instant messenger for what seemed like ages.

Then one day聽he called me and said he was playing a gig in Camden and did I fancy meeting up.

I was so nervous I nearly didn’t go聽and聽as my friends and I were mooching around outside deciding which bar to blow the gig off for,聽he came out of the venue with his guitarist!

Damien聽tells me聽he knew in that instance that he’d fallen in love.

After the gig聽his band made their way back to Bristol minus a drummer!

We stayed up and drank ourselves sober with vodka, and talked on my sofa till 6am. Somehow聽he never made the train back home that day, nor the next day, or the one after that.We’ve been totally inseparable ever since.

Damien proposed to me on our two year anniversary, it was a rainy day and we were at Pendennis Castle.All of a sudden he starts saying “No way, that’s so beautiful – look babe”, I couldn’t look as he was peering out of a tiny teeny window and was blocking the view.

Then he turned around and all I saw was a sparkly ring.

I just started grinning like a village idiot, jumping up and down and all manner of strange sounds exited my for once speechless聽mouth!

So that’s our little love story, we’re totally blown away that Kat and David have chosen us as the winners for the competition.

It’s the best wedding present ever!

Are you as in love with them as I am?

Here they are the day they met up after all those years聽and feel in lurrrve!

Drum Roll Please!

I am so excited to announce the winners for our amazing free wedding photography contest.聽 We had so many amazing entries that it was actually nearly聽impossible to choose just one winner聽but we finally came to a decision聽and chose Vana & Damien!聽聽They have won an engagement shoot and all their wedding photography on the day!聽 We loved this couple’s enthusiasm and over-excitement about all things wedding and had some amazing and totally unique ideas about what they want their wedding to be…and isn’t that what a Rock n Roll Wedding is all about?!

Vana & Damien are a amazingly cool couple from Newquay.聽 They are having a “tattoos, gingham and rock n roll” affair right by the beach in November.聽 They are also getting matching tattoos the very next day in their get up and we can’t wait to photograph that as well..it sounds amazing right?!聽 Vana’s dress also sounds fan-bloody-tastic but I don’t want to reveal anything in case Damien is being kept in the dark!
