Well it wouldn’t be a Rock My Wedding shoot without a behind the scenes video now would it?
And who did we decide would be the perfect man for the job? Rupert Ward-Lewis.
Rupert evoked such a positive reaction to the lovely Lizzie’s wedding a few months back, he was the first person we thought of. Based in Bristol he was an absolute trooper on the day, despite having a horrible cold and we are literally bursting at the seams to get on and show you the film he captured!
I loved working on this project, and to finally get to hang out and work with the gorgeous Rock My Wedding team was so much fun. They seemed a little star struck to be working with me but after a laugh and a smile they realised that I was human after all…!
To work with Julia was just fantastic, and the finished product looks out of this world. All the effort and time that the whole team put in to pull this project off was amazing and many thanks to Rock My Wedding and Julia Boggio for letting me capture it. To make films like this is a success, the day needs to be fun, and fun we certainly had!
Oh and as it seems to be such a highlight for all of you(!)… you get to hear Charlotte and I talk again in this one
Make it Large and turn it up LOUD lovelies!

Rupert is also working internationally and has bookings in the US, Turkey and Amsterdam this year.

I’d like to Thank…
Once again, we’d like to say a massive thank you to all the suppliers involved in the shoot – it was a mammoth task, but we reckon it was just about worth it, not only to work with the legend that is Julia Boggio and her team, but all the amazing people we had the pleasure of working with both on the day and in the run up to the shoot. Without each and every one of you the shoot would not have been possible and we would like to thank you all, on behalf of our readers too for helping us make the magic pretty
Here’s what Julia had to say about the Day…
I really enjoyed working with the Rock My Wedding. I’ve admired their blog for a while and thought it would be fun to do something together. And I wasn’t wrong. They were so professional in the way they presented concepts to me and then organised the shoot. I was mightily impressed. My favourite of the three dollies was definitely pop because it’s so up my street. But that being said, it was fun to shoot all of the looks. I always enjoy opportunities to shoot well-planned fashion stories like this one. I have to say a big thank you to Nonsuch Mansion as well for allowing us into their amazing venue for the day. The location was absolutely perfect for what we wanted to achieve and I think Nonsuch is a hidden gem in south London. Also, I was glad to be able to work with both Robbie Honey, who I’ve known for a while, and Russell from Blackburn Bridal, who I met while filming for Wedding TV last year. I’m already looking forward to our next shoot together!
