I’m kinda running out of ways to say “Eeeeek, the new issue is now available!” but today issue 17 goes on pre-sale so here we are again! I also know I always say how obsessed I am with our latest cover, but that’s because I ALWAYS mean it!
This issue we have the gorgeous Sharon as our cover babe. I’m not going to lie, as soon as her photographer, Sophie Baker, submitted the wedding I was secretly hoping there would be a shot in there that would work for the cover. I mean, what other wedding magazine on the planet would have a bride rocking pink space buns on the front!? She could not be a more perfect representation of a Rock n Roll bride and I can’t wait to see her beautiful, smiling face on newsstands up and down the country!
Here’s a little peek at a few of the other eleven brand new weddings hiding inside this issue…
I’d also like to make special mention of our editorial shoot which we created in collaboration with jewellery brand Iz&Co. Check out the behind the scenes video below!
YOU GUYS, as of this month I will have been blogging for 10 years – A DECADE! I can hardly believe it! To celebrate this and the fact that Halloween (definitely a Rock n Roll bride’s favourite holiday) is just around the corner we’re doing a MASSIVE MAGAZINE SALE… In fact it’s not even a sale, we’re literally giving them away!
Run, don’t walk, down to your local newsie today and grab the latest issue of Rock n Roll Bride. Available in WhSmiths, Smith’s Travel, Sainsburys and selected newsagents, I can’t wait for you to get your mitts on it!
I’ve already been cracking on with putting the next issue together and I want to make sure this is a magazine for YOU. So if you have any ideas, or burning questions, general concerns or wedding planning worries that we can help with, do let me know!
I have been looking forward to releasing this issue for over a year because it’s the one featuring my babe Helen’s wedding! I’m sure most of you will know Helen, YouTube sensation (ha!) and all round gorgeous person. Her wedding to Matthew in July was one of the highlights of my year so far so I am TOTALLY OVER THE MOON to be publishing it in our latest edition.
This cover, shot by Emily Tyler Photography, gets me every time. Not only does she look utterly beautiful but she’s sharing it with her babies, Barney and Lola. I love Barney’s enormous yawn, he doesn’t give a fuck that he’s on the cover of a magazine haha!
If you want to see all the details and read the full story of Helen and Matthew’s colourful carnival inspired day, then pre-order your copy right now!
Elsewhere this issue we’ve gone over to the dark side. With Halloween just around the corner our editorial shoot pays homage and is one of my favourites we’ve ever done. I’ve wanted to do a goth inspired shoot for a while and clearly the September/October edition is the perfect spot for it.
If you picked up a copy of issue 14, you will have already seen our “Art Bride” editorial shoot that my fashion team and I put together. Doing the editorial shoots for the magazine is one of the the highlights my job. I feel very much like a character in a rom com from 2005, where the heroine works at a fancy magazine in New York when I do this kind of stuff (ha!)
The concept of this shoot was dreamt up by our stylists Erica and Alex. I immediately loved the idea! We decided to shoot in black and white to really make the illustrations, done by our FABULOUS design team, We Are Branch, pop. Its super handy when two of your designers used to be fine artists!
