Whats’ It All About Then?
Launched in October 2009, Rock My Wedding was created by Charlotte O’Shea, a newly-wed with a passion for the pretty and the realisation that UK brides would benefit from a frequently updated on-line resource featuring achievable and unique Big Day inspiration.
Rock My Wedding aims to bring soon-to-be-brides a wealth of ideas through fresh and innovative content, daily “real wedding” eye candy and access to the Industry’s most desirable vendors.
We believe in Love. We believe in the Happily Ever After. And most importantly We believe in making your day your way.

Charlotte Likes… The word “sexy”, nautical stripes, shades of blue and grey, glossy fashion magazines, loft spaces, statement jewellery, chiffon, caravans and rooftop gardens. Music, dancing, fancy shoes, a photograph that tells a love story, manicures and pedicures, sophisticated simplicity, my Grandpa’s polaroid picture collection, sweetpeas, sunshine and kissing until your lips are raw.
Short shorts, sequins and tassels, a pop of pink blush, anything by Chanel, laughter, friendship and creativity. The word “delicate”, a lazy breakfast, hot chocolate with marshmallows, retro home furnishings, living every moment and most of all….being Mrs O’Shea.
Adam Likes… Music Music Music! Spotify, 6music, Stephen Fretwell, Death Cab For Cutie, The Cure. Fonts, photos, Films, Fancy Footwear. HTML, Design (especially a logo), anything to do with Photoshop. James White, Jon Burgerman and Jasper Goodall. Coffee table books, Grand Designs, old buildings and second hand furniture.
My Tanglewood & Italia Marenello Speedster (both guitars) and my Casiotone mt-30 (keyboard). Hot Chip. Geek Chic. My Diana F+ lomo camera and my Canon Kiss from Japan. Japan in general actually. Sneaking into somewhere you shouldn’t be with a camera. Tokyo, Paris, New York but above all London. Oh and my Volvo… Gotta love the volvo.
Lauren Likes… Dinner at the Wolseley, the smell in the air just before a thunderstorm, new shoes, surprises, glitter, the feeling of my boy’s hand in mine, the sound of the rain against a tent when you’re snuggled up warm inside, new books, old books and more books, cookies and milk, Time Team, the quiet hush of a library. Soft chiffon and gauzy metallics, the sea – Oh I love the sea!
Smokey grey eyes, laughing with the girls, Pinterest, folky music and good design. Annick Goutal’s Chèvrefeuille, beginnings, log fires, lily of the valley, Italy, hot sunshiny hair, etched glass, being up to no good, parcels, ribbons, the sound of wood pigeons at the height of summer, daydreams, olives, and champagne. Every girl loves champagne!
Becky Likes… Design, photography, old things that have a story, illustration, the word love, to paint, all lower case or all upper case, my husband, dunking chocolate digestives in tea, italian food, chinese food, thai food, food in general, 2 sugars and lots of milk, Thailand, my dog, tulips, the colour orange, getting in the crook of my boys neck and having a cuddle.
Shoes, summer fruits squash, my friends, London, Japanese fashion, Gwen Stefani, Blondie, rain, Pulp Fiction, weddings, pretty things, ugly things, gigs, early morning text messages from a friend you haven’t seen for ages, my niece (gosh I love my niece), inspirational quotes, different textures, touching things, New York, a tiny village in Thailand called Pai, Life of Pi, and most of all I like love. It makes the world go round – I like that.
