Libby and Matt were married at The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The inspiration for the wedding was the bride’s emerald engagement ring, which was originally Matt’s grandmothers. The also bride wore a bespoke green silk dress by Wendy Benstead.
“We had already been considering green for our main colour, but then we finally moved house and got our first garden, and decided to expand on that and make gardens the theme” the bride said. “We ended up with a gift list at a garden centre, hired trees to decorate the venue, and wild, ivy-type flowers for the bouquets and tables, as well as a garden arch covered in flowers which we got married under.”
“The most unqiue parts of our wedding were probably more the things we didn’t do” she continued. “We didn’t do favours, we didn’t have a first dance, we didn’t have a traditional wedding cake, I haven’t taken Matt’s name, I don’t wear a wedding ring (just my engagement ring) and obviously I didn’t wear white! We decided not to do anything just because it was traditional, although we weren’t against carrying on the traditions which we liked. For instance, throwing confetti seemed to really fit with the theme of the wedding, and I bought some beautiful green and white petals from The Real Flower Confetti Company.”
Sarah and Sebastian were inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for their April wedding. They wanted to have the trip of a lifetime, Cadillac convertible and all. They invited a big group of friends and family to fly out to celebrate with them.
“Being from Vienna, getting married in Vegas was pretty unique and a huge novelty” the bride began. “We thought it was really special that all our friends and family were coming the long way from Austria, England, Mexico and all over the USA too. Getting married with all our family and friends there was the best thing we could experience.”
The couple flew to Los Angeles and then drove themselves to Sin City. “Along with our photographer, we drove from from Los Angeles to Vegas in a 1970 Chevy Impala. We stopped along the way to shoot some of our wedding pictures in the desert. It was a big party on the highway because people kept seeing us driving in our wedding clothes. They started honking, waving and taking pictures. It was such a great experience and so much fun!”

Advertising in Rock n Roll Bride magazine will not only get your business in front of the exact type of clients that you’re desperate to work with, but it supports what we do. We’re not a big team.

We’re fiercely passionate about inspiring our readers, but also supporting awesome alternative wedding businesses wherever possible.
Our advertising prices still start from a ridiculously affordable £50. We’ve purposely kept our rates low so that YOU, those smaller, indie brands who are desperately trying to get the word out about what you do, can afford them.
