ROCK N ROLL BRIDE

Joining the flock once again our awesome show sponsors Rock and Roll Bride!!!

We are so thrilled to not only have Kat as a sponsor but to have her come and spend the weekend with us at the show, showing off her latest copies of THE best wedding magazine out there, along with her collaboration collections with Crown and Glory, The Couture Company and Veronica Dearly!!

Launched in 2007, Rock n Roll Bride is one of the biggest wedding blogs in the world. Updated daily, the site and it’s accompanying print magazine attracts quirky, alternative and creative readers from all over the planet. The brainchild of Kat Williams, the site came about while she was planning her own wedding in 2008. After becoming jaded by the limited offerings of the UK wedding industry, Kat saw a niche for alternative wedding inspiration and ran with it! Rock n Roll Bride magazine, a bi-monthly, nationally available magazine was launched in 2015. Issue 1, released in January of that year, was reported by the distribution company as the fastest and best selling debut issue of a magazine ever. It also sold out for online orders within 72 hours, with over 1000 copies selling in the first day alone.

They will be sharing their latest magazine issue (and you may even get to grab the odd back issue too), with EWE! EWE’d be BAAAAArking mad to miss them. Come and have a chat with Kat at The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza,
