Mismatched Farm Wedding with Llamas, Sheep and Ducks!

The Wellbeing Farm in Lancashire was the perfect venue for Christie and Kurt’s informal wedding. They didn’t have a colour scheme because they wanted something more organic and mismatched. “We tried not to have a proper theme as we thought more mismatched would be better”, said the bride. “However a ‘no theme’ theme was pretty impossible because when you start buying you naturally gravitate towards similar things.”

The one thing the bride did want though, was lots and lots of flowers. “We are both green-fingered and used to have our own allotment so the flowers were important to us. The Flower Farm were able to provide us with absolutely beautiful wildflowers, most of which they had grown themselves. We wanted flowers everywhere so there were fresh local flowers in every possible vessel including tea cups, tins, jam jars, milk bottles and milk churns. My mum and dad had a production line going. My dad would eat a tin of beans every day and my mum decorated them with lace, twine and wooden hearts for us to use as flower arrangements!”

Colourful Pub Wedding

Laura and Jack’s pub wedding was low key, laid back and colourful. They didn’t want to be restricted by one particular colour or style, we they included a bit of everything they like.

“For inspiration I looked online and in magazines but mostly everything looked quite boring, until I found Rock n Roll Bride!” said Laura. “So I did take lots of inspiration from the website and magazine but mostly we just winged it and picked things we liked.”

The day started with a ceremony at Merton Registry Office. “The ceremony was lovely but seemed to be over so quickly! I was so nervous and excited while I waited, my stomach was full of butterflies. In my interview, the registrar commented on how handsome Jack looked and also how relaxed he seemed, this calmed me down and I couldn’t wait to see him! I walked down the aisle to Be My Baby and as soon as the little drum bit kicked in at the beginning and I saw Jack I totally relaxed. We giggled and kissed throughout the ceremony, a few late arrivals stumbled in half way through and we just laughed even more. Nothing mattered really, and as cliché as it is, we only had eyes for each other. We wrote personal vows to each other, but read them privately in the morning; those words were just for each other.”

Bonnie & Clyde Inspired Joshua Tree Elopement

Desert Noir Joshua Tree Elopement (6)

Mia and Jay wanted to do something completely different for their wedding, so they eloped in Joshua Tree, with just the them, a friend to officiate the ceremony and another to take the pictures. In fact, these photos look like something out of a fashion editorial shoot rather than a real wedding don’t you think!?

After the ceremony, they buried a time capsule to commemorate the day. “We wanted to tell our story with our wedding, The Desert Noir Story (our surname is Noir)”, said Mia. “We knew we wanted to have a time capsule that contained trinkets of the past six years including our written vows and letters we’d written each other. We will come back in say, 20 years, to dig it up and we won’t know what the letters say until then! We wanted to come up with a creative story around it for the photos, so we shot it like we were burying something we’d stolen from a heist at a bank! Our overall inspiration was Bonnie & Clyde, dark moody colours, and film noir.”

Rainbows & Stars Themed Wedding in France

Margot and Paul’s summer wedding had a very obvious theme: Rainbows! They also incorporated lots of stars such as on the bride’s dress, their rings and in the stationery. They were married at a lovely country house in the heart of the Thousand Ponds region in Haute Saone, France.

“Our wedding was themed around rainbows and pixels!” said Margot. “It was a mix of Paul, who works in video games and myself, who loves bright colours. We were married in an area of France that we discovered and fell in love with together. We let ourselves be inspired by anything we liked during the wedding preparations. Pinterest was a huge source of ideas, but we also used our range of skills (and those of our friends). If we saw something we liked during a walk or a visit somewhere we would make a note of it and try to use it.”

New York Bookshop Wedding

New York Bookshop Wedding (12)

Jade and David were married in a New York bookshop in August. They themed their wedding around their love of travel, and on the tables were photo props for each of the cities they were named after. “We were inspired New York!”, said Jade. “It was the first place we went on holiday together and we’ve been back a few times since. We knew it would be the perfect place for us to get married.”

After photos around Soho with their photographer, Sascha Reinking, the wedding itself was held at Housing Works Bookstore. “The venue was completely different to any wedding we’d ever been to. As it’s not a typical wedding venue and I suppose we both worried a little on how it might go. However the team there were so incredibly professional and the whole wedding went so smoothly. Also the wedding officiant, Reverend D, can only be described as unique, alternative and different! She was amazing, we each filled out a survey from her before the wedding so she could personalise the ceremony for us. It was short (just as we wanted), hilarious, sweet and so perfect for us. She stayed for the dinner and party after and our guests loved her just as much as we do!”

City Jungle Rooftop Wedding in Moscow

Alice and Andrew’s 50-guest wedding was held on a rooftop in Moscow. They gave their guests a dress code to wear only black, and the cake was all black as well. As I’m sure you can guess, black is the bride’s favourite colour. They really just wanted to get married and have a huge party – so that’s exactly what they did!

“Our first idea was that we would have a pool party!” said the bride. “But the weather in Moscow in September differs completely from the west. It may be 20°C or it could be 5°C! So instead we decided to have a party on the urban roof with a magnificent view of the beauty of the Moscow city centre. The idea of a kind of ‘city jungle’ themed party came after we found the right rooftop. We loved the idea of a neon tropics theme!”
