Issue 27 is Available for Pre-Order Now!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

YAY! Issue 27 of Rock n Roll Bride magazine is now available for pre-order! You can grab your copy right now and if you’re in the UK you’ll probably even get it before it goes into shops next week. OR, why not subscribe so you never miss an issue again?

Do you know what the hardest part of producing a magazine is? It’s not writing the content, doing the editorial shoot, finding the weddings to feature or even dealing with the print and distribution… It’s the covers! Covers are SO HARD because there are so many elements that need to come together exactly right in order for it to work. Plus, there are differing opinions and favourite images and let’s face it, when it comes to the magazine being on the newsstands the cover is literally what will or won’t make a browsing shopper stop and pick it up. They say don’t judge a book by its cover… Well people definitely DO judge a magazine by its cover!

The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I feel that this issue’s cover is quite different to any of the others we’ve had recently and we’ve taken a bit of a risk. It’s not a massively bridal image (but hell yeah to brides in gold jumpsuits and glasses please!) and I don’t think I’ve ever seen an orange wedding magazine cover before – BUT I LOVE IT.

It’s certainly different, it’s certainly fierce and it’s certainly going to stand out on the shelves next to all the white-on-white trad bridal mags. Only time will tell whether it will positively or negatively effect sales because it’s such a departure from what people might expect from a wedding magazine but I’m excited to take the risk! After all, if you keep doing the same as everyone else, you end up being like everyone else and, as we all know, Rock n Roll Bride ain’t about that!

Love wins. Always.

No matter where we grew up, what our sexual orientation is or how we self-identify, love is the thing that keeps the world turning. You may think I’m being cheesy but if you think about it hard enough, is there anything else that motivates you more than love?

When I sat down to plan this issue I wanted that to be the core message throughout – that no matter what, love is the most important thing. Forget the wedding planning stress, forget the bloody table plan, forget trying to keep everyone else happy – instead, focus on the reason why you’re getting married in the first place – BECAUSE LOVE – and you won’t go far wrong.

The content inside this issue is beaming out of my heart towards yours, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I did putting it together. Inside you’ll find over 100 pages of brand new weddings, as well as articles and inspiration to help you plan your day in your own unique way.

Issue 25 is Now Available for Pre-Order!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

OK friends, we need to talk about this cover because it fills my heart with so much joy I CAN NOT contain myself! Shot as part of the Rock n Roll Bride x Little Mistress campaign (which launches on March 11th!) this may just be my favourite cover ever. I am just obsessed with the juxtaposition of the softness of the image but with our babing model Elisabetta looking fierce as hell. If you have a copy of my book we actually used her for the gothic bride images in that too, but I loved working with her so much I had to book her again!

Oh, and that bow? That was a random scrap of tulle that we tied around her head for the very last shot of the day. We’d shot everything we needed to and we we’re basically just dicking about. Apparently, playtime is when the real magic happens!

The full Rock n Roll Bride x Little Mistress campaign images are featured inside this brand-new issue and I’ll be sharing ALL the details and links to buy the dresses when they drop on 11th. Eeek, I can’t wait!

So what else will you find inside issue 25? We always try to show a really diverse collection of wedding styles so whatever kind of wedding you’re having I hope you’ll find something to inspire you. Here’s a few teases…

Issue 21 Now Available for Pre-Order!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

Confidence. It’s something we all strive to have right? We want to feel comfortable in our own skin, we want to love ourselves, we want to be able to see what sassy, gorgeous goddesses we really are.

But we struggle. We look in the mirror and feel disappointed with our lot. We look at other people and think “Why is that not me?” Well you know what, today I want to remind you that YOU ARE FUCKING FIERCE. Yes, you reading this right now. You’re a total BABE. No matter what your outward appearance, no matter what kind of clothes you wear, no matter if you have “on fleek” eyebrows or insta-worthy make up skills. You are a one-of-a-kind powerful goddess. You have the potential to be whoever you want to be. YOU ARE FIERCE.

My friend and photographer of this most epic of magazines covers, Lisa Devlin, shared it a few days ago in a private Facebook group for wedding photographers and wrote the following… I know she won’t mind me sharing what she said because, without wanting to toot my own horn too much, it made me really, really happy.

“You know I was saying how I feel like it’s all work, work, work right now? It’s so easy to get absorbed into that feeling and not step back and see the bigger picture. I’ve just seen this, the next cover of Rock n Roll Bride magazine and I told Kat that it’s probably my favourite cover of the magazine yet. I can’t wait to see it on the shelves surrounded by vanilla same old, same old covers.

I fucking LOVE that she is a mixed race girl with a shaved head and yet that is nothing to do with why she was in this shoot or why this shot made the cover. She is there because she exudes confidence, joy and being your best self, loving life and wanting to include others in that.

To me that is what this magazine is all about and Kat’s philosophy to business. Most of us are in the ‘alternative’ market and could we just imagine for a second where we would be putting ourselves if her blog and magazine didn’t exist?

I’m going to do my best to keep my head above water for the next few weeks and remind myself to celebrate all the good things. I am so proud of this cover, proud of the team effort that goes into the shoots and chuffed to bits that I shot this. So, what if you think about it, are you chuffed to have achieved recently?”

Thank you Lara Elliott for coming along to the editorial shoot for this issue and sharing this behind the scenes peek for us. And yes, it really was as fun a day as it looks!
