How to…Dress as a Wedding Photographer
July 9, 2011
After such a great response to last weekend's post about How to Dress as a Wedding Guest, I got thinking about how I could expand this mini-series. I had a few photographers in the comments asking if I had any tips of how they should dress to shoot weddings. Now clearly I'm not a wedding photographer myself so I thought instead of trying to guess my way through answering this question, I'd ask some of my favourite photographers to share an outfit they might typically wear to shoot a wedding.
How to…Dress as a Wedding Guest

I think they key thing is to dress appropriately to the theme of the day and usually this can be determined by how and where the ceremony is taking place -ie a church wedding might mean the wedding could be a more of a traditional affair so maybe you should tone down your inner goth.
I think if you know the couple well it's easy enough to ask what the dress code might be, but just in case you're off to the wedding of your second cousin twice removed, I hope some of my recent finds can give you a few new ideas...
“And the Bridesmaids Wore White” ~ My Top 10 White Bridesmaid Dresses
May 7, 2011
The world let out a collective 'GASP' as Pippa Middleton stepped out of her car and walked towards Westminster Abbey last Friday. "Shock...horror! The bridesmaid is wearing white!" I imagined a million old ladies whispering.
I personally loved the look - fresh, clean and more than anything, wearing the same colour (and designer) as the bride made them look like a team - a unit...Team Middleton if you will! As you can well imagine, I was not one of those completely shocked, and this 'revelation' wasn't actually a huge surprise. We've seen bridesmaids in white on this blog before (waaaay back in January 2009 in fact!) and did you know it's actually quite the royal tradition to have bridesmaids wearing white - even Diana's maids wore the same colour as she did.
Stop the Press – NEW Vivienne Westwood/Melissa Shoes!!!
April 13, 2011
I received a VERY exciting email in my inbox this morning and thought it was worth interrupting our regularly scheduled programming for - especially as I've had countless messages recently from many of of you that have been struggling to get your hands on the original white & red Vivienne Westwood/Melissa Lady Dragon heart shoes.
And the all exciting news is that they are BACK and revamped with a brand new super shiny, metallic finish. Oh be still me beating heart!
Alternative & Non-Strapless Wedding Dress Ideas for a Rock n Roll Bride
March 28, 2011
I have a question about wedding dresses and I am super curious if you could help me out. My friend is getting married and she is having a really difficult time finding a dress. I mentioned to her how frustrated I would be if I were her because it feels like 95% of wedding gowns are "tube top" style. I find this incredibly weird considering MOST of my girlfriends hate their arms, yet all of them ended up wearing a tube top dress for their wedding. My friend flipped out (in a good way) when I said that because she said that is exactly the problem she is running into.
My question is....do you know of ANYYYYY websites/blogs/companies that sell UNIQUE, FUN DRESSES THAT are short, long, medium length, has sleeves, off the shoulder style.............JUST DIFFERENT! I feel like if I can help her find the perfect dress then the universe will be friendly to me when it's my turn....and helping her is SO MUCH FUN :)
How To…Dress Your Flowergirls (the Rock n Roll Way)
February 12, 2011
Thank you thank you thank you for your amazing website!
We're getting married in August on a farm in Derbyshire and I have got so many wonderful ideas from your site! We are currently DIY-ing bunting and lanterns with many other things on the way! Our budget isn't grand by any stretch of the imagination but the site has made it possible to know our wedding can still be very us and very unique without the massive price tag!
The theme is village fete - country- vintage ish! Hay bales, bunting, lanterns, wild flowers mis match china, vintage marquees etc! My other half has a vintage 3 piece tweed, I have a 1950's lace fishtail gown that I love and can't wait to wear! The bridesmaids are Vivien of Holloway but I'm so stuck with flower girls... Have you ever come across vintage style flower girl dresses? Everything seems so puffy and bridesmaidy (technical terms) and its not really right for the rest of it! Any ideas would be most appreciated!
Keep up the good work, you're an inspiration!

I've been pouring over your blog for 6 months gathering lots of gorgeous ideas for my wedding next year. But before that I've got my new sister-in-law's very traditional wedding to attend as a guest in April I've been trawlling the internet for weeks trying to find the perfect outfit/accessories which will mark me out as a bona fide Rock n Roll Bride-to-be, without upstaging the bride - well, not too much anyway!
I would love it if you were able to work your Rock n Roll magic and help me find some inspiration.
