Rainbow Wedding Editorial | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Could we do a Rainbow Coloured Wedding Shoot but make it sophisticated? This was the challenge that we set ourselves for an editorial with Rock n Roll Bride magazine. So we gathered up a load of wigs from Annabelle’s, some very gorgeous coloured dresses, a bunch of giant balloons and headed to the studio.

I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands. I HAD FLASHES but you saw the plan. I wandered out in the world for years but you just stayed in your room …

London Bride Shoot for Crown and Glory with Rock n Roll Bride

London Bride Shoot for Crown and Glory with Rock n Roll Bride

How have I not yet blogged this super pretty shoot for the Rock n Roll Bride veil collection at Crown and Glory? We decided to do a shoot with a very London look but the kind of London that you see in Richard Curtis movies.. all pastel coloured houses and blue skies. We wanted our model to convey a laid back urban bride and I think Tinks totally got the vibe.

 

The veils are all super cute and available here. The very lovely flowers for this shoot were provided by Amie Bone, the make up and hair was done by the brilliant Tabby Castro and most of the bridal wear is from Halfpenny London. If the location looks a little familiar, it was were Ness and Mugs took me for their London Engagement and they tell me there are always film crews there!


Every inch of sky’s got a star. Every inch of skin’s got a scar. I guess that you’ve got EVERYTHING now …

How about florals, says Erica. How about Final Fantasy, say I. Honestly, you should see how long the group chats are pulling these editorial shoots together for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine. But we all utterly adore working on them and personally my favourite part is seeing how all our different input ends up translated into the final images. This time I think we can call this Final Floral Fantasy, am I right?

 

Each shoot is aimed at Kat’s readers who are never going to go for the straight white wedding option. They are pretty alternative but don’t always have a huge budget. So these frocks from designer Chotronette are right up their street and I know that so many brides went crazy on Kat’s Instagram when it was revealed that the dresses are priced between just £100-£850.

Elvis + Priscilla // Wedding Shoot Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Elvis + Priscilla // Wedding Shoot Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Rock and Roll Bride magazine is a terrific source of inspiration for alternative couples planning their weddings. The editor, Kat is pretty open minded when it comes to pitching her suggestions for editorial shoots for the magazine and for me, this idea had been brewing for a while. You see, I’m kind of really obsessed with the love story between Elvis and Priscilla. And I often wonder, would it ever even happen in modern times? So for me this shoot was an homage to their love story with a very modern twist.

 

Some of the best things about working with Kat are the creative team that she brings together for projects (see credits at bottom) and her own ideas. It was Kat that twisted this from having a male model in our ‘Elvis’ role into having our incredible model Tarla translate both characters. Erica and Alex did a wonderful job on the styling, I hope brides see that weddings don’t have to be all tulle or lace. Finally, how lucky was I being let loose in the amazing Hotel Pelirocco with all it’s music inspired rooms?


Well though it’s always crowded, you still can find some room. For BROKEN-HEARTED LOVERS to cry there in the gloom. And they’ll be so, they’ll be so lonely baby, They’ll be so lonely, they could die…

Rock n Roll Bride // Irregular Choice Shoot // Hotel Pelirocco

When Kat from Rock n Roll Bride first told me that she was collaborating with the incredible shoe company Irregular Choice and creating some shoe designs with them, I immediately put myself forward to shoot the look book. I adore their shoes and love seeing them at weddings, so of course I was super excited to see what Kat would come up with after being let loose in their design department. I expected sparkles, pink, love hearts but I didn’t predict flamingos! There are two pairs which are both ace and I’d love to see some more in the future.

As the shoot was planned for early summer, we hoped to use a mini golf course as a backdrop but in true British Weather style we ended up with torrential rain on the day. Luckily the very wonderful Pelirocco Hotel in Brighton saved the day and let us shoot in and around the hotel. The shoes are of course utterly divine and I hope to see one of my future brides in her own pair soon. Hotfoot it (pardon the pun) over to either Kat’s site or Irregular Choice now to grab a pair. Oh and if you like the look of the frocks, they are by the glorious Oh My Honey in Brighton.


I’ll wave with you behind me with a NEW SMILE on my face, Cause I’m walking in new shoes now, I got a new song to sing …


Eden Project // Wedding Shoot

Eden Project // Wedding Shoot

Have you ever been to The Eden Project in Cornwall? It was one of those places that I kept meaning to visit but never quite got around to it, so when they invited me down there to do a wedding shoot for them, I was pretty happy to oblige. In fact I brought my little family with me and we all stayed on site in converted shipping containers. It was quite an adventure.

 

It sure is a spectacular place for a wedding, ceremonies can take place in various spots around the the biomes and it is simply stunning for photos. There are not many places in the UK where you can embrace the tropical, as well as the Mediterranean but I think my favourite spot was Wild Cornwall. Thanks to all the events team down there for the hospitality and to everyone who helped on this shoot.

 


 

Come closer and see, see into the trees. Find THE GIRL if you can…
