Offbeat Bride mention in The Guardian #In the news Updated Sep 13 2019 (Posted Jan 3 2007) Ariel arielmstallings Looks like the Brits have taken notice of Offbeat Bride. The book was mentioned in an article called And the bride wore hotpants. My favorite interviewed bride is this woman. I'm guessing we'd get along great: It didn't take digital artist Mischa Giancovich, 28, long to come up with the theme for her wedding. "I am a total festival head and so is my husband, Jem," she says, "and we knew our mates would appreciate a mad fancy-dress camping weekend in the middle of nowhere." The dress code was "charity shop wedding" and the invitations were designed as festival flyers. They persuaded a farmer to rent them a field on the Isle of Wight, where they live: the cows had to be moved out the day before, "and a team of very loyal mates spent the day scraping up cowpats". Add in trails of bunting, silly signs, a roaring fire and the inevitable Portaloos and you have the perfect bridal Glastonbury. Ariel Author of three editions of the Offbeat Bride book and the forthcoming From Shitshow To Afterglow, Ariel Meadow Stallings acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. She writes weekly essays for her new publication, The Afterglow. NEXT How to make a wedding porta potty less gross and more awesome Show/Hide comments [ 1 ] I read it about 2 weeks ago and was shocked (as your book isn't published yet). I was in the train (I am in the UK) and went like WTF I KNOW HER! (well, read her)… I thought about emailing you to tell you but thought you had been contacted by them already so I did not bother… And hey, The Guardian is the best newspaper in the world. I would be ecstasic. Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
