This Wedding Rocks…..part 2

This is a Rock n Roll wedding if ever I saw one and that’s why Kat from Rock n Roll Bride has chosen it to feature on her funky edgy and unique site and kindly let us post the reception details in this here part 2…..

It’s like a lovely little collaboration in wedding blog land if you will and believe me we’re more than a little bit thrilled to be sharing the love with another Big Day blogging chick that rocks.

Before you have a peaky at what we have to offer you REALLY need to head on over to Rock n Roll Bride RIGHT NOW to see all of the gorgeous preparation and ceremony details. Then come back to Rock My Wedding for a second helping of fabulousness….

The gorgeous Emily and John got married at Woodstock Town Hall followed by an evening reception at the The Great Barn in Oxfordshire….

Divine Venues and 1950’s Dresses

The wedding venue was the oh-so-cute Woodstock Town Hall, with standing room only for guests.
The reception venue was the Great barn in Anyho which was a 17th Century barn that has been converted to host events. My dad used to go for dinner there with friends after fishing but that was before it was converted, when they had to keep there jackets on because you coudl see daylight through the holes in the walls!! But now the fully restored barn complete with two roaring fireplaces it much more cosy!

We wanted to make sure the bridesmaids had a dress they would wear again and I personally have never been a fan of the traditional pastel bridesmaid’s dresses… but we found the amazing dresses we chose in Ted Baker, the shape and 1950’s look was perfect. 


The Perfect Dress and Shoes

The shoes are Christian Louboutin ‘Rolando’ style in light gold leather and my dress was “Rock n Roll” by Ian Stuart, I wore it with a lace shrug.

Bright Blooms And Little People

We wanted the day to be modern, relaxed and fun, we have lots of nieces and nephews so it was a very family orientated day.

We decided to go for bright coloured table centres because we wanted them to be a bit different and to stand out from all the christmas decorations at this time of year. My godmother organised all the flowers brilliantly. I always felt that wedding flowers can look so clinical and we really wanted to make them feel much more personal and homely in the reception, all the table bunches were taken home by the guests at the end of the night. Also with the bouquets, we just wanted somethign a bit more funky and went with the striped black and white ribbon for the bridal bouquet, which I think looked brilliant and really elegant but with a touch more personality.


Rock n Roll Baby

The theme was really ‘rock n’ roll’ I hate to say – we had acoustic metallica playing as guests enetered the town hall and heavy metal was mentioned in virtually every speech! Our first date was to see Metallica in Dublin!


Cool as hell right?

And just to make you all smile on what may be a grey and miserable day…. I’l leave you with a little picture from this A.mazing wedding that is cute as hell…

Everybody altogether now say “ahhhhhhh”

Thanks to Kat at Rock n Roll Bride and Marianne Taylor for sharing.

Hope you are all having a fabulous Wednesday.

Big Love
