Emotional Spanish Desert Elopement

July 2, 2019

Publishing real weddings is my favourite. I love to read their stories, hear all about their celebration and swoon over their creative ideas! So, when I first found out this was a shoot, and not a real elopement, I was a tad disappointed. However it turns out that models Aida and Ismeal are a real couple, and the emotions you see in these INCREDIBLE pictures are 100% real... even if they didn't officially get hitched. Good enough for me! These photos, by the super talented French photographic duo Beatrice and Jeremie aka The Quirky, are out-of-this-world stunning. Of course we had to publish them!!

Finding just one dream wedding outfit for is a pretty tall order, which is why we are ALL about wedding day outfit changes here at Rock n Roll Bride! Whether that’s as simple as swapping your veil for a crown, adding a warm jacket, or kicking off your heels (literally!) so you have something more conformable to dance in… Or you want a whole second outfit that’s more suited to throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor, we are here for it!

The Glitter & The Colour: A Modern Festival Inspired Styled Shoot

June 12, 2019

While all weddings are of course unique in their own way, there are a few themes here at Rock n Roll Bride that, behind the scenes, we’ve been calling nu-trad; you know, like nu-metal, but for weddings. The Limp Bizkit of matrimony, if you will. ‘Festival weddings’ being one of them. There’s a very good reason that things become popular - certain styles, like dusky foliage, painted leather jackets and dainty flower-crowns look beautiful together, so by all means there’s no harm rocking these things if you think they represent you.

Accessibility Issues & Wedding Planning Advice for Couples with Disabilities

Celebrate Again

March 1, 2019

This is a bit of a different kind of feature for us, but one I really hope you find inspiring and helpful. We were submitted this photo shoot by wedding photographer Emmy Gaines of Searching for the Light. She wanted to shoot a real couple and to show that even if someone has a disability they can still live their life to the fullest. So often, less able-bodied people are ignored by the wedding industry (thankfully this is slowly changing!) but on Rock n Roll Bride we want to champion the fact that EVERY BODY deserves to get married, to have the same wonderful experience and to be treated respectfully by their suppliers and vendors.

Happy New Year's Eve! How are you celebrating tonight? Is it a night on the town, a house party with your besties or a night in with a bottle of Prosecco and turning your bathtub into a makeshift ball pit? If the latter sounds like a damn good time then you're going to love this shoot (ha!) If you're a reader of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a few of these shots, as this editorial was featured inside issue 23, however I thought today, the national day of parties, would be the perfect time to share some of the previously unpublished shots with you.

Mirror Mirror: An Alternative Bridal Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

December 5, 2018

Rock n Roll Bride was built on sharing alternative, inspirational yet attainable real weddings. When I started blogging in 2007 there was no other platform showcasing weddings that sauntered off the beaten path. However through many long hours of trawling wedding forums, Flickr groups and good old fashion Google, I was able to uncover many, MANY incredibly creative, super unique real weddings that weren't being shared anywhere else  - I assume because they didn't fit the picture perfect, traditional wedding mould that was so popular a decade ago.

I am so excited to finally be publishing this bridal fashion editorial in full today! If you grabbed yourself a copy of the last issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a lot of this shoot inside, but today I wanted to take the opportunity to not only share more images that didn't quite make the spread (when 10 pages just isn't enough!) but to tell you all about Walthamstow Wetlands, one of London's coolest new wedding venues, who we partnered with for this shoot.
