Email is our love language. For real wedding submissions, freelance writing opportunities, advertising info, brand collaborations, press enquires, messages of love and everything in between, please drop Kat an email to While we will make the final decision on whether a feature is placed in print or online, you are very welcome to let us know if you have a preference and we will take it into account.


We accept real wedding submissions from photographers, newlyweds or a wedding supplier involved in the day. We know you are as time-poor as we are so like to keep things as simple and straight-forward as possible. To submit your wedding drop us an email and include the following:


♥ Between 10 and 20 low res images. Please include portraits of the couple and detail shots (the cake, centrepieces, decorations etc). If the submission is accepted we will then ask you to send the full gallery.

♥ Images can be sent attached to an email or linked to an external online gallery. If you would like submit via Dropbox please email a direct link to the folder itself rather than inviting us to a folder within Dropbox (as these can often be missed).

♥ Colour images are generally preferred over black and white.


♥ The couple’s names, wedding date and location (there is no time limit on submitting, and it doesn’t matter if you got married yesterday or three years ago, we’d love to see it!)

♥ A short paragraph or a few bullet points laying out why you think this wedding is perfect for Rock n Roll Bride and anything that makes it particularly stand out.


While we favour real weddings over engagement and styled shoots, we do feature all three. Sometimes if we don’t think a shoot works for a full feature, but we like it, we may request to use it to illustrate another article in the magazine (with credits of course!) Boudoir is generally not our bag but if you have something really amazing and unique then try us. We like to be proven wrong as often as possible!


Exclusivity & social media

Rock n Roll Bride will only publish weddings and shoots that have not been previously featured on any other wedding blogs or magazines. Please do not submit anything that is currently pending with another publication.

If your submission is successful and published, we are happy for you to submit it elsewhere afterwards. We only require to be the first to feature something. We do not expect the images to be held back for any specified period of time after our feature.

You are very welcome to publish the images on your own blog, website or social media but if they are picked up by another blog, magazine or publisher it may jeopardise your feature with us.

Will I hear back about my submission?

YES! You will hear back, usually within 2-3 working days, whether your submission is successful or not. If it isn’t please don’t take it to heart! We receive a huge amount of submissions everyday so unfortunately, we are unable to feature every single one. If you haven’t heard back within a week, feel free to send a follow-up as it may have got lost in cyberspace!

How long does it take for a submission to get featured?

Our current lead time for publication is approx. 3-4 months for online features and 2 issues (4 months) for print features.


Permission to be featured from the photographer and the couple is imperative and the image copyright holder (typically the photographer) will be required to sign a permission form before we share any images. Please get permission from all parties before submitting a wedding or shoot. Weddings cannot be featured without the questionnaire filled in by the couple and the signed permission form.


Things we really love:

Happy, smiley couples in love.
Creative and beautiful portraits.
Brides with attitude and a rockin’ sense of style.
Wicked, unique wedding details (cakes, centrepieces, flowers etc).
Pets at weddings. The more the better.

Things we don’t really love so much:

Selective colour. Never ever, ever do it. EVER.
Dutch tilt. It makes us feel seasick.
Over-processed, inconsistently edited photos.
HUGE high res image files embedded into emails.
Weddings that are more about the STUFF than the LOVE.
People that are rude. Or Impatient. Don’t be a dick.

    I adore your site. The ethics and all. I’m getting married myself shortly and wondered whether you could share this on your page to help empower other women that may be feeling this way….

    Now I am one for raving and ranting and swearing but not often taken a stand on social media. I am not articulate, my spelling and grammer sucks but I hope people will get my drift…..

    Friday was one of the best days of my life. My mums and I went shopping for a wedding dress. My heart dancing with a zillion butterflies and my anxiety levels in that place between projectile vomiting and laughing till I wee myself.

    As I stood trying on dresses surrounded by mirrors in the shared dressing room I was opposite a girl who I deemed to be one of the most beautiful and perfect women I have ever seen. A body like in a movie a face like a piece of art. Tall, slender, absolutely stunning. She’d have looked good in a bin bag but as she started trying dresses on I was almost in tears. I was so happy for her but so envious. I wanted to be her. I wanted to look like that and I wanted right there and then for a freaky Friday moment where we could swap bodies.

    I told her she was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen and she looked shy and bashful. She saw me try on my dresses and returned the compliment. I don’t know whether it was just to be nice or not but I appreciated her efforts in trying to comfort my broken mind.

    We left the shop with excitement but not the feeling that we had found ‘the one’. Later that day we did. And I stood there and looked at myself and I thought. … may not be that other girl. But you are the girl Brodey Laundon is marrying. I cheered up and thought about him and how much love I feel and have in my heart which makes it almost feel like it’s about to burst.

    I’ve never won and will never win a beauty pageant. I won’t be the girl that guys look at and lust over and that’s fine. Especially because I have my guy……. but now to the rant…… looking through bridal magazines….. I see this. …… (see image)

    Titled THE WEDDING PROCEDURES. Firstly sounds like a really bad hammer horror film. But secondly. …… where the fuck do people get off writing this pure. …..utter shit. I don’t feel good enough most of the time. ….but now…..over the next year. According to this article I need to book a consultation with a surgeon, start using acid fillers, have both, teeth whitening, IV therapy and go for a thread lift on my jowls boobs and cheeks.

    So I wanted to take this opportunity to say FUCK YOU to the “Brides cosmetic guide 2017 in association with Lumity” (more like fucking lunacy) This horrid untreated non-threaded jowl faced lump that I am may not be perfect. But I got a fiance you thick twats.

    Ladies and gentlemen, trans- whoever you are……. people love you. They love you. Dressing gown and hung over. In bed with the flu. Or just plain hormonal. You will look amazing on your day. BE YOU because that’s who we love xxxxxxx

    I’ve subscribed to your fantastic magazine since day one but now need to cancel my subscription. Please could you let me know how to go about this.
    Thank you

  8. Debra Duffy

    Hi Kat,
    Congrats on 11 years!! I wanted to ask you for son and future daughter-in-law’s wedding…what the name of the shop is that your sister got her wedding dress from??
    I remember the post and photos from her wedding and it was so fabulous.
    The coolest outdoors hippie chick wedding.

    Thanks, Debra (a major fan in Florida/U.S.)

  9. Post author

    Hi Debra, the brand of her dress was Rue de Seine, unfortunately the shop she got it from has now closed down but you should be able to find a stockist near to you!

    Hi Heather, sorry issue 8 is sold out. Have you tried eBay or the Rock n Roll Bride facebook group?

  11. Aaron Wendel

    Hello “Rock and Roll Bride”!! Absolutely love what I just saw regarding your publication…fantastic work!! So refreshing to see something different. I was just talking with my daughter who is quickly becoming a very successful photographer and she informed me that you have published some of her work. I see it is in the Nov/Dec 2018 issue (#23, correct?). I would love a copy of this issue. My daughter is Mikaela Wendel and I believe the wedding was shot in San Diego, California. Since I am in the United States, and have no paypal account, could you please help me obtain a copy of this issue? Of course, I would be willing to do what ever it takes to make this happen. At your convenience, please contact my with any suggestions or instructions. Thank you so much, and keep up the amazingly interesting work!!

  12. Donna Blais

    I understand my daughter’s wedding will be in the March issue, and I would like to know how I can order print copies to be sent to Canada.
    Thank you!

    Hi Donna
    The March/April issue goes on sale on the 26th February. You can order it at from then!

  14. Cheryl McCluskey

    Hello Kat (ace name)! I’ve been following you on Instagram for YONKS despite not planning a wedding. I just love your style and attitude 😀

    I am now helping to plan my best friend’s wedding. We met at Uni and she was the only friend I made! She is battling cancer, but her attitude is nothing short of inspirational. I am constantly astounded by her positivity and happy outlook.

    She’s getting married in September, and I really want to help this to be a hugely special day as she really does deserve it. The dresses and styles you showcase are right up her street! I’m hoping to be able to help her find her dream dress, and any advice/help in encouraging her to treat herself would be very much appreciated 🙂

    Thank you so much for your time.


  15. Rima Varghese

    Hi there!
    I was wondering if Issue #24 will be restocked at any time or is it gone for good?

    Thank you for your time!

  16. Post author

    Hi Rima

    We are sold out of all of our allocated stock I’m afraid but if you are in the UK we are stocked in WHSmiths and Salisbury and some local newsagents too. I hope you find it!

  17. Post author

    Hi Nathan
    Yes we are all sold out of issue 24 – you will still be able to find it in WhSmiths though!

  18. Shirin

    Hi Kat! Love your stuff and have been a big fan way before I even got engaged! I live in Italy and whilst I know you ship to Europe I just wanted to see if you had any stockists here at all? Also big congrats on the book, hope many more reprints come, I know I’ve ordered mine!

  19. Neal Keeling

    Hello, Neal Keeling, chief reporter at the Manchester Evening News here. I am working on a story regarding Manchester music legend, and shop owner, Kathy Parsons, who has died from cancer. Your magazine did a glorious spread of pictures of her wedding just a month ago. Many tributes have been paid to Kathy as we would like to do our own. Could we possibly use some of the wedding pictures you have published – we will make it clear in the article they are from your magazine.
    Best Regards, Neal.

  20. I see that the March/April issue is sold out. Is there any way I can still order 4 copies of it? My daughter is featured in it and I want a copy for myself and family. Thank you Michelle Crow

  21. This site is awesome!
    I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely blog. 🙂
    Take care!


  22. Ed Schultz

    Hi Kat
    My daughter Tkay (Tiffany) is in issue 33 I just order a copy but would of like to order more then one at a time to save on shipping to the states…
    can you let me know if that would be possible?
    Thank you proud papa Ed

  23. Every time I get bored or sad waiting for the next beautiful wedding from you to light up my world and visit a different wedding share website, I literally end up “running” back over here for dear life, from the endless monotony. I mean it’s getting better but I love this place. It’s like a real home. Thank you for building it. Much love to all 💖

  24. Okay, I am loving the personality that is poured into these submission guidelines. I am laughing so hard. I can’t wait to get some goodies sent over into your guys’ email. Kat, you’ll be hearing from me real soon!
