Given that many of our designs are offbeat and unusual you can be certain that we love the crazy, the quirky, the unique and the individual. We believe that everything about your special day should reflect you as a couple. With that in mind we wanted to point you in the direction of one of our favourite blog sites.
Rock ‘n Roll Bride
Rock ‘n Roll Bride was launched in 2007 by Kat Williams. Like us she was surprised by the overwhelming amount of formulaic wedding supplies and offerings available, and saw a niche for alternative wedding inspiration.
“Being ‘Rock ‘n Roll’ is not about being cool, being a rebel, or even thinking of the most unique idea you can. It’s about planning a wedding that reflects you and your partner and declaring your love in your own special way.”
Rock ‘n Roll Bride Manifesto
What you can expect to find on the blog site is a home page with fabulous featured weddings from ordinary couples with extra-ordinary ideas, and a list of some kick-ass Rockstar vendors and suppliers. You can head over to the shop to purchase your latest Rock ‘n Roll Bride Magazine, and even submit your own wedding to become featured.
If you are a newbie to blogs or need some help with the site we’d recommend viewing their essential blog user guide: which contains so many helpful links, hints and tips that you will wonder why you didn’t subscribe yesterday.

In January 2015 a bi-monthly magazine was launched to accompany the blog site, which sold like hot cakes with over 1000 copies sold on the first release day. The magazine is available to buy at WHSmiths, independent newsagents and online at rocknrollbride.com/shop. If you need a complete overdose on Rock ‘n Roll awesomeness you can get all the latest by following on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and subscribing to the RSS feed.
What we love best about this blog is that it features ideas from real weddings with a variety of venues, themes, budgets and couples. We loved the idea of a wedding at Manchester Museum for its quirkiness and amazing photo opps, but equally we found the idea of a DIY wedding in a meaningful place like the back garden of the bride’s parents house so personal and touching.
Put simply we couldn’t agree more with this sentiment from the Kat:
“Don’t let the wedding industry define your day, let you define your day”.
