Kate and Graham had a rustic and boho inspired wedding in South Africa. They spent under £9000 on their dream wedding. “We really wanted a lot of greenery and ever since I was little have always dreamed of getting married in a forest”, said Kate. “We chose Cranford Country Lodge as our venue to incorporate all of that.”

“Our ceremony was lovely because it was so relaxed and informal”, she continued. “We live in London now and had only flown back to South Africa a week before, so we had never got a chance to chat to our pastor properly. But he surprised us with these lovely metaphors using some rope to symbolise our bond, and it definitely got the crowd laughing and made us feel very relaxed.”

I’m not sure if I’ve seen a wedding shoot with a transgender model before which is why I am so excited to share this one with you today. Photographer Meghan Melia explains the inspiration behind this shoot.

“While brainstorming for this styled session, I knew I wanted to include diversity. Bringing the focus of the story around a transgender couple was something that was near to my heart, and I wasn’t alone. This was something that was important to everyone participating.”

“Seth began his journey from female to male in December of 2015. I was following his updates
and progress on social media and I remember feeling so deeply excited for him and his
acceptance of his true self. I was nervous reaching out to him, we had never met in person, but I
knew that this was important and I wanted to share images showing his accomplishments.”

Industrial Charm and Glamour

Brooke and Phil’s wedding theme came about when they found their venue, The Arches in Dean Clough, Halifax. The traditional cloth mill had exposed brick work, pillars and stone floor which was the perfect backdrop for an industrial inspired wedding with just a touch of glamour.

“We didn’t want the wedding to feel try-hard or pretentious”, explained Brooke. “We had a stylist, Natasha Nalton at Natasha Jane Events, who helped us decorate the space. From our first meeting she understood exactly what we wanted and didn’t let us down on the day. She created something that had the wow factor whilst still being relaxed and all about the celebration.”

“We loved all the glam elements like the mercury glass candles and roses while the copper and eucalyptus brought it in keeping with the venue. My sister in law made our table numbers and chair signs and I had fun spraying bottles copper. Natasha did a brilliant job of including our handmade elements with her own extensive collection of props.”

“We knew that we wanted a different wedding that spoke about us and about our love story”, said the bride. “The best part of the day was the surprise when our guests found out we really got married! Nobody, except our families, knew that we got married that morning. As our party was only supposed to be an anniversary party some of our friends though it would be funny to prepare a fake ceremony for us. It should have been a simple joke but at the end of it the ‘officiant’ told everybody that during the morning we were truly get married! Everyone was so shocked!”

Meg and Craig didn’t want a big wedding but with the bride having a large Irish family it was slightly inevitable! In the end they agreed a guest list of 85 which was mostly close family and our best friends. They were married at Pangdean Barn, Pyecombe, Sussex.

“I would say the theme was rustic barn setting with a cute and quirky decor that reflected us!” said Meg. “We didn’t want formal or traditional and this was my first wedding to attend that wasn’t in a church! I LOVE Harry Potter and was allowed to have one Harry Potter element in the wedding. It’s better he restrained me really other wise we could have been getting married in Gryffindor robes by Albus Dumbledore. Our tableplan was my nod to Harry Potter. Made by my sister Becky, we named each table after a couple from the books and we sat at Snape and Lily’s table which was written on a page from the chapter the unbreakable vow.”
