Sorry, this product is now sold out!

If you were one of the 1400+ (!) smart cookies who pre-ordered your copy of issue 33, then it may have already landed on your doormat, but if not, I wanted to tempt you further by sharing some little sneaky peeks inside the brand new Rock n Roll Bride magazine today. I am so very proud of this issue and I know you’re going to love it!

The theme of this issue is rebirth because I truly feel like the wedding industry is being reborn right now. Covid-19 put everything on pause. It’s given you the chance to take a beat, to reassess what you REALLY want for your wedding and to trim the fat of the stuff you were doing just because it was cool… or trendy… or Pinterestable. Inside you’ll find the usual eclectic mix of real weddings, shoots and advice articles, but with a focus on paring things down, stripping things back and focusing on you as a couple.

The past few months have been a tough time for everyone, but to those of you dealing with the heartbreak of having to postpone your weddings – I see you. Just remember, a big, fancy wedding has never been what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about. It’s about having a day that celebrates love, family and your own personal view of the world and I for one am so excited to see how you all do this once you’re finally allowed to loudly proclaim “WE DO!”

Honestly, I think the mix of weddings inside this issue is one of my favourites ever. There’s an Indian wedding inside that will blow your socks off, an Irish day with all the girly details, a wrestling themed colourful celebration and a travelling elopement…. and that’s just for starters!

Issue 33 is Available for Pre-Sale Early!!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

Exciting news! Issue 33 (July/August) is now available for pre-order! Our last issue sold out in just TWO WEEKS and as so many of you missed out, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to release pre-orders for the next one early. This means we’ll be able to gauge the demand a bit better and we can print enough copies to make sure everyone who wants one, gets one. If you want to guarantee that one of these babies will drop on your door mat then please pre-order yours now. UK postage is free and we ship worldwide. They will begin to ship from June 26th.

We have also made the decision not to put issue 33 in to stores, if you want this one you MUST order it from us. We feel so much better about having you order online right now rather than making you rifle through stores to get it. Many of our stockists are still closed, and those which are open are only offering limited inventory to help reduce the workload on their staff, so this makes the most sense all round.

The theme of the issue is REBIRTH because that’s what we feel is happening in the wedding world right now. While gatherings are on hold we’re seeing a huge shift in the attitude of couples and the wedding industry alike. For brides and grooms-to-be, the general consensus seems to be that you just want to get married already! Your wedding plans are getting smaller, your days will be more intimate and, arguably, even more special and heartfelt, too. You’re focusing less on the ‘stuff’, the extravagance or on throwing the ‘best day ever’. You want to make things simple and personal and to be with your loved ones.

Issue 32 is Available for Pre-Order Today (Stay Home, Stay Safe & Have Your Copy Delivered to your Door!)

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

Rock n Roll Bride is a wedding magazine for people who hate wedding magazines.

This is why I started my entire business, as the antithesis to everything I disliked about the world of weddings while I was planning my own wedding. Nothing about that has changed, in fact, I think it’s something we’re leaning into even more as the brand and business has grown. We really just want to show you that you DO NOT HAVE to have what’s trendy, popular, cool or ‘normal’ when you get married. The landscape of the wedding industry looks very different in 2020 than it did in 2007, but there is still so much work to do. There are still things to question, things to shake up and convention and expectation to reject. It’s our job to show you the way, it’s your job to make your own decisions about what you want and DO NOT WANT your wedding to be. If you agree with me then you are going to LOVE the latest issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine, which is on pre-sale today!

Spring is well and truly right around the corner (I can feel it in my still rather freezing bones!) so I am very excited to try and preemptively kick the warmer weather into action with the launch of issue 31 of Rock n Roll Bride magazine!

The cover image was shot by my team and me at possibly one of my favourite shoots we’ve ever done (do I always say that? Yeah maybe..!) but trust me, if you’re having a spring or summer wedding and you’re a bit of a girly, pastel babe, you are going to LOVE IT.

Below are a few more previews of what you’ll see inside this issue and I have to say, I think the selection of real weddings we’ve got this time are also some of the best we’ve ever had!

Happy Boxing Day one and all. I hope you’re feeling suitably rested, stuffed and that yesterday was all kinds of lovely. This is always one of my favourite times of year because I get to hear about all the festive engagements! Did any of you find a sparkler under the tree!?

I don’t know about you, but I think this is the perfect time to get involved in all things Rock n Roll Bride because with a brand-new year (no, DECADE!) right around the corner we have such big and exciting things planned (ahem Rock n Roll Bride Live!) This new issue also marks the five year anniversary of the magazine (WHAT, WHAT!?) I can’t quite believe we’ve now produced 30 of these babies. Seriously, five years?! Where the hell did the time go!?

Here’s a little sneaky peek of just some of the content you’ll find inside issue 30…And yes, that is a real bride gracing our cover. What a bloomin’ mega BABE. Just you wait until you see the rest of her Vegas wedding, too. I mean damnnnn.

Issue 29 is Available for Pre-Sale Today!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

The final issue of 2019 is here and ready for your pre-ordering pleasure. I’m not even going to make a big song and dance about how bloomin’ fast 2019 has gone and how I can’t believe that we’re about to publish our November/ December issue but let me just say I am shooketh!

OK though, this cover, and this shoot, I’m like a proud mama bear. The whole reason I do what I do is so I can provide a platform for anyone who doesn’t feel like they fit in… anyone that doesn’t feel represented in the mainstream wedding media… anyone who feels like an outsider, or different, or maybe just feels uncomfortable with all the patriarchal, traditional shit that can come as part and parcel with a wedding. I’ve wanted to work with a transgender model for a very long time, but it’s also taken a very long time to find one who was right for the job. As soon as I came across Talulah Eve I knew she was perfect.

I’m pretty sure I can say with utmost certainty that this has to be the first time a trans model has been used on the cover of a wedding magazine (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong because I’d love to see it!) and I am so fucking here for it I can’t even tell you.

It’s time for MORE REPRESENTATION, MORE VIABILITY AND MORE SHAKING UP THE STATUS QUO IN THIS GODDAMN ARCHAIC INDUSTRY. This is something I am bringing in HARD for 2020 and I’m excited as FUCK to bring you along with us.

Want to see what else is in store for you inside issue 29? Of course you do…!

Rock n Roll Bride Issue 28 Is Now Available for Pre-Order… Plus BIG BIG BIG NEWS!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

Rock n Roll Bride magazine was launched in print in January of 2015. In a time when print was ‘dying’ and other magazines were going digital-only, we did the opposite. We’d been a blog for nearly a decade but I was ready for a new challenge, and with everything in my life it would seem, I wanted to buck the trend.

28 issues on and we’re still going from strength to strength, but today’s announcement may just be the biggest we’ve ever made (so far!) I am SO FREAKIN’ OVERJOYED to tell you that Rock n Roll Bride magazine is expanding. From the next issue onwards we are going to be sold in stores in America, Canada AND Australia!!!

THAT’s RIGHT, you’ll now be able to find the magazine in Barnes and Noble in the US, Indigo Bookstores in Canada and select independent book shops and newsagents in the US, Canada and Australia. I know, I know, there are NO WORDS to express just how exciting this is!

One of the things I get asked lots is if we’d ever expand and start selling the magazine overseas (especially in the US) which always made me laugh a little bit because we feature content from all over the world and we ship worldwide, but still, even in 2019, there is a demand to have print products available to purchase in physical stores (plus those international shipping rates can be rough). However even in the UK, where we ship for free, around half of our readers still go out every other month and pick up their copy in a shop rather than ordering it online. I guess there’s still something so satisfying and cool about finding the magazine you want in a store, picking it up and paying for it in person. Wild, huh?

This issue will be in UK stores from September 5th. It’ll appear on US newsstands from October 10th, in Canada from October 20th and Australia from November 19th!

If you are based in these countries and have a subscription or would prefer to order via our website, you still can. Also, if you order during the pre-sale or first few weeks of each issue going on sale, you’ll probably receive your copy before you’ll be able to find it in a shop (the nature of distributing overseas means the availability will be behind the UK release dates. They gotta travel over in a huge container ship!) But nonetheless this is a pivotal moment for Rock n Roll Bride and I COULD NOT BE MORE ECSTATIC ABOUT IT.

OK, OK enough confetti canons, here’s a little cheeky peek at what you’ll find inside this brand new issue. As always you’ll find over 100 pages of real wedding and style inspiration…
