A Newly Married Couple Take on Palm Springs, Smashing Gender Norms in the Process!

We get to publish a lot of cool shit on Rock n Roll Bride but this may be one of the coolest shoots we’ve ever seen. It’s the last official day of Pride Month (but y’all also know we celebrate Pride 365 over here) and so we are going out with a BANG.

This shoot was partly to celebrate Inga and Zingy’s wedding (they got married in a very low key way a few months ago), but mostly to create something that smashed gender stereotypes and promoted inclusive and authentic representation – in not only the wedding world, but gender non binary styling and fashion. HELL YES WE ARE HERE FOR IT.

Head in the Clouds: Yes, Disabled People Get Married Too!

As the brand-new issue of the magazine is now available for pre-order (did you grab yours yet?) we thought we’d share a few more of our favourite shots from the current issue’s editorial shoot, many of which didn’t make the final spread.

We absolutely LOVED shooting Gemma and Renee from Zebedee Talent Management and we’re excited to share even MORE of their stunning faces with you today.

When we put together the looks that both Gemma and Renee wore, we were careful to choose items which the girls could actually comfortably wear if this was their wedding days. There was no point putting Renee is a big dress while in her chair as it would get caught in her wheels, and giving Gemma something with a long sleeve would hang awkwardly beyond her elbow!

When you’re disabled, planning a wedding can feel even more daunting than usual, especially when it comes to figuring out what to wear. With this dreamy editorial we wanted to give you some fun options that still scream Rock n Roll Bride through and through.

You deserve to feel like your most fabulous self on your wedding day, no matter what your body looks like!

Hawaiian Paniolo Meets Modern Hawaiian Royalty

This shoot took place Camp Palehua, at their highest cabin which overlooks the westside of O’ahu, in Hawaii. A group of local vendors, who wanted to give homage to the old Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) style mixed with a modern take on Hawaiian royalty.

This was a opportunity to think out side of the box when planning your wedding here on the islands”, Zabrina of The Gay Agenda Collective, who planned and styled the shoot, said. We also wanted to showcase that you do not need much to have a beautiful wedding. All really you need is you and your partner, lots of love, and if you’re lucky, a stunning view.”

Neon Dreams Meets Afro Punk

Magazine subscribers will recognise this shoot, as we published a few of the images in our March/April issue. However, that just wasn’t good enough, these photos are so epic they deserve a full feature!

Created by florist Danielle Fleming of Your Vision, My Promise, she was influenced by an Afro punk festival which she went to few years ago. She explains, “I was really inspired by the way people were dressed in lovely material and vibrant colours. I loved the sense of freedom and expression. I went home inspired and thinking I would love to do a wedding for some of the couples I saw there that day.”

“Having the time during lockdown I realised that I still hadn’t really seen a photo shoot that really had that theme. So I decided to do one with a photographer I love, Zu Beary.”

She also brought stylist Jeannda fleming on board who was able to bring affordable, high street and DIY elements into the outfits to make it wearable and effective. “I also wanted the flowers to be as much a part of the picture as the models”, she said.

Highway to Hell: Rock n Roll Desert Elopement Inspo

Part of our mission statement here at Rock n Roll Bride is to inspire couples to plan the wedding that they really want, in an industry that’s dictated around tradition – an industry that does its’ utmost to convince you that to get married you need to have the expensive dress, the biggest cake, the most raucous party. While there’s absolutely no shame in having these things on your wedding day if that’s what you want, that’s the key part in all of this – being a rock n roll bride is all about planning a day that reflects you and your partner and declaring your love in your own special way.

These shots of Eugene and Veronica, captured by Katherine Bree Walker are the antithesis of all that STUFF – no fuss, just two lovers having a whale of a time being their truest selves. You can’t get more Rock n Roll Bride than that!

No-Fuss, All Disco: Vegas Meets True Romance Wedding Ideas You Will Love!

There’s no denying that Vegas, and Vegas style weddings are vey vey veyyyy popular with Rock n Roll brides. But not everyone can fly over to Sin City for their nuptials, which is why we LOVE this Vegas meets glitz inspired shoot send to us by Toronto based Dream Weaver Events., created in partnership with LoveShackTO.

Event planner and designer Shana told us all about their celebratory shoot. “The inspiration came from LoveShackTO’s break into the industry. Nataleigh had a dream of creating an amazing, pocket-sized rock and roll space where couples who were looking for something more than City Hall but less than all the pomp and circumstance, could go, get married, and have beers after with their best friends. The dream actually came about long before the pandemic hit, and it actually just ended up fitting perfectly with couples needing an option for pint-sized weddings.”
