Originally published in issue 30 of Rock n Roll Bride magazine (Jan/Feb 2020), our ‘Queen for a Day’ editorial was all about celebrating how fierce you are going to be as you sashay down the aisle. We wanted to use giant crowns, gold and some really unique florals. As soon as we found the stunning Fitzrovia Chapel, a bedazzled little jewel of a place hidden away in the streets not far from Oxford Circus, we knew it was the ideal location. Oh, and in case you were in any doubt, a big fuck off crown is always a good idea!
OK, on with the shoot! Model [aka the Queen]; Anu was the perfect muse for this shoot – WHAT. A. BABE!
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.
WOW you guysssssssssssss. I can’t believe we’re saying this, but new issue of the magazine is almost sold out and it’s only on general release from today! We’re talking 95% sold out! This makes this our fastest ever selling pre-order since the launch issue. If you pre-ordered your copy will be winging it’s way to you already, but if not, this is your FINAL WARNING to order now or forever hold your peace.
As we mentioned, due to Covid-19, we don’t know if this issue will make it in to stores. So, if you want it, you MUST order it from us. We won’t be able to reprint the issue so once the final copies are gone, they are GONE.
UK shipping is still free, we can ship worldwide and you can also subscribe so you’ll never miss an issue for no extra cost!
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!
The March/April issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine is in stores TODAY so get your hot ‘lil butt down to your nearest WHSmiths, Sainbury’s or independent newsagent and grab yourself one. Alternatively, stay right where you are and order one here! Remember, UK postage is free and we ship worldwide!
International readers, our overseas stockists will have it on their shelves in the next 4-6 week (8 for Australia). You can also subscribe below:
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! If you want to get yours as quickly as possible then pre-order (or subscribe so you never miss one) today.
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!
