Can you believe that the first National Wedding Show of the autumn season is next weekend? Me either! It seems like it was only about a month ago that we were doing the spring shows. I am super excited to get back on the road though, meet as many of you as possible and of course, launch my brand new veil collection that I’ve designed in collaboration with Crown and Glory!
Today I wanted to get you a little bit excited about the new range with a cheeky sneak peek of the lookbook shoot we did last week. Plus I’m hosting a contest to give away 25 pairs of tickets to the shows so you can come and see them in person! Keep reading until the end to find out how to enter.
The new collection is a bit more grown up that the last one, but still girly, glittery and super fun…
And even we’ve created our first full length veil! Yes those are holographic stars at the bottom!
As always, each piece will be fully customisable meaning you can select your preferred choice of embellishments. This is just a tiny preview, to be the first to see and order from the full collection then you’ll have to come along to one of the shows where the collection is being launched.
Can you believe we’ve now done ten whole issues of the magazine?! If you haven’t pre-ordered or subscribed yet (why the hell not?! UK shipping is free you know!) than you should pop down to your local WhSmiths or Sainsburys today and grab yourself a copy. Here’s a little peek at what’s inside.
As always, I’d love if you posted a selfie with your copy on Instagram or Twitter. Use the hashtag #rocknrollbridemagazine and my favourites will be featured inside the next issue!
I know I say every single issue that the new one might be my favourite so far… but this time I really, really mean it because my sister Rachel’s wedding is featured inside and she’s on the cover! Ahhh what an utter babe.
Planning their wedding was so amazingly fun (and very stressful at times!) but it was so exciting to see it all come together. Then seeing their magazine feature materialise gave me all that same stress and excitement all over again. I have to give extra props and love to my lead designer Shauna on this spread – she’s probably never had to deal with a more neurotic client than me while working on it!
Trying to figure out the perfect image choices was… well… an experience (if you think planning a wedding presents you with a lot of opinions, try designing a magazine spread of said wedding and keeping everyone happy!) Every day I was emailing her like “Erm, what about if we switched this with that?” or “How about changing that one and adding these instead?” I’m sure she was cursing my name and putting a hex on me from her studio in Portland!
We got there in the end though and I can’t wait for you guys to see how the wedding (and feature!) have turned out.
Issue 10 isn’t just 165 pages of Rachel and Jamie though, there are also ten other incredible real weddings for you to feast your eyes on. From a burlesque and 1950s themed day in South Africa, to a Haunted Mansion wedding on Halloween and a mermaid inspired wedding down under, this issue is packed with over 100 pages of real life weddings. Here’s a tiny preview…
