Gothic yet Girly Wedding Inspiration

There’s a bit of a misconception in the wedding world that brides who want to wear black want to go all-out goth with their wedding theme too… but what if you wanted to combine your love of pretty florals with a penchant for a darker ensemble? Where exactly can you look for inspo?

Enter stage left, this beautiful editorial which was spontaneously put together by a group of UK-based wedding suppliers, led by photographer Ioana Porav. She explains, “My inspiration for the shoot was just to be very spontaneous! I had all the elements in my studio and literally overnight I called the model and I said to just create some fresh content and inspiration. Usually we work with a mood board or inspiration but this time was different.”

An Ode to Love: Soft yet Strong Elopement Shoot

With so many amazing real weddings being submitted to us every day (our readers really do have the BEST weddings!) its very rare that we publish styled photo shoots. HOWEVER, when we laid eyes on this clifftop beauty put together by wedding planner Periesa Oromé and photographer Rebecca Carpenter we were desperate to see more.

Periesa told us all about it, “I called this shoot ‘An Ode to Love’ because I wanted to throw out the bells and whistles that usually come with traditional weddings and focus on the intimacy, and love of the couple. I wanted the couple to do it their way and my aim is to encourage others that’re grappling with the number restrictions and reassure them that it’s totally okay to elope and do things on their own terms.”

“I wanted to organise an editorial shoot which would be fun and quirky: the meeting between boho and disco”, she wrote. “The meeting of bright and pop colours and natural materials For me it was also essential to shoot a REAL couple.

The pandemic has thrown couples planning their weddings into a tailspin this year and while it’s certainly been anything but smooth sailing, we have been LOVING seeing how you’re all adapting your plans.

Are You Ready for Love? An Elton John Inspired Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

There’s nothing we love more at Rock n Roll Bride than going OTT, extra AF and living your best authentic life, no matter what that looks like to you. This shoot, which we shot just days before lockdown began in March (yes, it’s taken me a long time to getting around to blogging it!) was featured inside issue 32 of the magazine, and while we’d been planning it for a few months, the glitz, glamour and all-round flamboyant extravagance of the theme was actually JUST what we needed to see once the dreaded c-word wreaked havoc with the world!

In times of austerity we need escapism, we need fantasy, and we need motherfucking sequins and enormous bedazzled sunglasses, and Rock n Roll Bride aims to deliver. You’re welcome!

I have to give extra love and props to artist Gabriella Rosie, who loved this shoot so much she created this artwork based on the images. WOW!
