007: Meet the Wedding Blogger: Rock N Roll Bride Kat Williams

There aren’t many people in the wedding industry that can legitimately claim to have a cult following but this week’s guest is number one on that list!
In 2007 after planning her own wedding, Kat Williams launched a ‘secret blog’ that featured her favourite alternative weddings and resources. But it wasn’t a secret for long, with rocknrollbride.com becoming the number one go-to blog for alternative wedding planning and inspiration! Aleisha and Kat talk about alternative weddings, blog beginnings and Kat’s new project The Blogcademy.

Listen to the Episode

Rock N Roll Bride ‘inspiring brides and grooms-to-be to plan the wedding that they really want, in a world dictated by tradition and big frou frou dresses’.

Kat is also one of the headmistresses at The Blogcademy, a two-day blogging workshop co-founded alongside prolific US bloggers Gala Darling and Shauna Haider of Nubby Twiglet.

In 2014, Kat’s passion project, a yearly produced print magazine, was picked up by publishing giants Giraffe Media and transformed into a bi-monthly, nationally available magazine. Issue One is due for release in the new year…and I’ll be talking to Kat all about it, in January! Weeeeeeee!

Thought I’d go a little old school with this week’s book recommendation….it’s old school but couldn’t be more relevant!
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
This moreish novel is set in the near future…a feminist’s nightmare (actually anyone’s nightmare!) women are strictly controlled, unable to have jobs or money and assigned to various classes: the chaste, childless Wives; the housekeeping Marthas; and the reproductive Handmaids, who turn their offspring over to the “morally fit” Wives.
Jeepers. I. Was. Hooked.

I must admit, I’m late boarding the Margaret Atwood bus but gee whizz I am devouring her back catalog and she’s quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. She’s 75, she’s on twitter and she’s awesome. I hope she writes until she’s 100+!
