Bright and Beautiful: A Colourful Shoot for The All White & Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

At Rock n Roll Bride magazine, we are all about helping you find creative, unique and totally ‘you’ ideas for your wedding, no matter what your style or budget. For issue 36’s editorial and cover shoot we partnered with one of our favourite new bridal brands, The All White, to shoot their collection of a modular, individual, affordable alternative to wedding wear.

Co-Founder Kate, launched the brand while she was due to being seriously disappointed with the offerings she found at traditional boutiques.

With 24-pieces that can be styled and put together in thousands of different ways, this collection acts like building-blocks, where you can pick and choose the pieces that speak most to you and create a completely individual bridal look.

Being an All White bride is also an eco-conscious choice as their pieces are made from a combination of sustainable, ethically sourced, or upcycled fabrics, are mainly machine washable and most (if not all!) of the pieces could easily be styled differently and worn after your wedding, too. They even offer a ’dye-and-rebuy’ service should you wish to recycle your pieces after your day.

We are so excited to share the rest of the images from this shoot with you today because there were SO MANY beautiful shots which didn’t make the print spread. Our model, Octavia, was so so sooo stunning so she made it very difficult to narrow down the selects.

READER OFFER

The All White are offering a whopping 30% off all their pieces for Rock n Roll Bride readers! Valid until 30/04/21, visit theallwhite.com and quote the code ROCKROLL30 at checkout.

Say Hello To Your Perfect Customisable Online Wedding Invitations with Paperlust

We love the creativity of wedding invitations but there’s this myth we often hear that they are always boring, bland, or get tossed to the can after the wedding day has subsided. News flash: that doesn’t have to be the case! If there’s one thing we know, it’s that wedding invitations are far from boring, in fact as they’re the first thing your guests will see about your wedding, they’re a pretty damn cool way set kick off the celebrations! If we know someone who has busted this myth, it’s Paperlust.

If you haven’t come across Paperlust before, let us give you a formal introduction. They are a leading online wedding stationery designer based in Australia but don’t fret, they offer worldwide shipping!

Couple’s love the convenience of designing their wedding invites online (who doesn’t love to tick boxes off their wedding planning to-do list on the couch with a glass of wine in hand?) but that often comes with other obstacles such as lack of quality or attention to detail when the final product is delivered to your doorstep. Paperlust is not only one of the easiest to design with, but they know the importance of going above and beyond to ensure your design in-hand is just as beautiful as it was online.

Is a Humanist Wedding Ceremony Right for You?

Photo: Alex Miller Photography

If you are reading Rock n Roll Bride then its highly likely that you’re dreaming having of an alternative wedding and if so, a humanist ceremony could be perfect for you. With a humanist wedding, each ceremony is created from scratch, so you know yours will be tailor-made to fit your style and personality.

What is a Humanist Ceremony?

Humanist wedding ceremonies are non-religious wedding ceremonies led by celebrants accredited by Humanists UK, who we are delighted to have partnered with on this article! If you don’t want a religious or register office ceremony, then this is going to be a great option for you.

The great thing about a humanist ceremony is that they can be totally personalised and feel very authentic to the couple getting married. There’s are no ‘must haves’ to consider which means you can make it as personal as you like, with your own vows and promises, poems, songs or even a spot of crowd-surfing! There’s also no time limit on the length of the ceremony which means you can incorporate all the traditions and symbolic acts that are meaningful to you.

In England and Wales, humanist weddings are not yet legally recognised which means you will need to also go and sign the bit of paper at the register office, but this can be done quickly and with very little fuss.

Humanist Ceremonies™ celebrants are full of creative ideas and your celebrant will be happy to work with you to put together a ceremony that is inclusive, unique, and unforgettable. The sky’s the limit! Their celebrants have overseen Chinese tea ceremonies, German ‘heart races’, ‘tying the knot’, ‘jumping the broom’, ‘warming the rings’, and much more.

Here are some unique ceremony ideas which you might want to consider for your own day…

How To Use CBD To Help Reduce Pre-Wedding Anxiety & Improve Your Skincare Routine

Cannabis leaf bouquet. Photo by Girl with the Tattoos. Full wedding featured here.

I’m pretty new to the CBD craze. Earlier this year, while I was going through a particularly difficult period with my mental health, I decided to give it a go after hearing it can help with stress and anxiety. I wasn’t quite at a stage where I felt like I wanted to get professional help, and I definitely didn’t want to take any medication, but I just felt I needed a little boost and I’d been told that CBD could potentially help.

If you’re a bride-to-be during the crazy year that has been 2020, then its quite likely that you’ve also experienced your own stresses and periods of heightened anxiety, too. With a million things to organise (and re-organise!) and a pandemic to contend with, its no wonder I’ve seen more of our readers than ever talking about just how stressed out they are about the whole thing.

Cannabidiol, or as you likely know it CBD oil, comes from the hemp plant (which does not have a psychoactive effect, meaning it won’t get you high) is now legal in the UK. It is hailed as a natural way to help with stress or anxiety AND can improve your skin – win, win if you’re planning a wedding!

I’m really pleased to be partnering with Cibdol – Europe’s leading supplier of CBD oil, capsules, topical agents and crystals – to share some products which may work for you.

CBD Oil 20%

My preferred method of taking CBD was through a dropper like this. You simply put a few drops under your tongue, hold it in your mouth for 20 seconds and it gets to work. Taking it in this way is a really fast and effective method and you feel the effects quickly. For me, this was perfect for bouts of anxiety.

Got Everything but the Kitchen Sink? Win a Tattoo Sink from Olif!

When we renovated our kitchen in a month (remember that madness!? I’m still exhausted just thinking about it!) one of the parts I was most excited about was our copper sink and tap set from Olif. I seriously never imagined a sink could be as beautiful as the one that’s gracing our worktops right now.

And after living with it for just over a year, I can hand on my heart tell you, it’s still one of the most visually pleasing parts of our home.

You’ll find an utterly beautiful selection of sinks and taps from Olif including finishes in gold, copper, bronze, gunmetal, matt black and brass. Also available are matching sink and tap packs in a variety of finishes as well as mix and match sinks and mix and match taps.

They even have glass surrounded sinks which are available in a rainbow of colours. If, like me, you love to find unique and unusual elements to bring into your home then this is the brand for you.

Olif are seriously ahead of the curve when it comes to their designs. So, when they got in touch to tell me about their new range, Tattoo Sinks, I was super intrigued.

Inspired by the art of tattooing and a desire to allow their customers to personalise their homes, this new range gives you choice of ‘tattoo’ designs which can be inscribed into the drainer. They have three tattoo designs as standard (a rose, a motorbike or a dragon) OR, and this is the best part, you can upload your own creation too!
