Vampire Royalty Wedding

Daley and Logan met at a goth club in Austin seven years ago. They began hosting events together, including the Austin Vampire Ball, which is actually where they got engaged! Their wedding theme was suitably ‘vampire royalty’ and and they wanted their wedding to be one-of-a-kind, but with some nods to tradition.

“Since we are the nominated king and queen of the Vampire Court of Austin, we wanted a wedding that would reflect that,” began Daley. “We also took some design inspiration from Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and The Beast, but essentially we were our own inspiration for our wedding. We wanted people to walk in and immediately say ‘This is definitely Logan and Daley’.”

“We wanted a very unique wedding with some surprisingly traditional aspects. Logan wore custom armour (crafted after the armour from Dracula Untold), with his fangs and green contacts. We also had a dragon cake with a replica of Dracula’s Castle, a crowning ceremony, and more red lighting and flowers than you could shake a stick at!”

A San Francisco Elopement, A Yorkshire Village Hall Reception & A DeLorean!

Charlotte and John decided to get married while on Holiday in San Francisco. They had just a photographer there as their witness. Afterwards they planned a low-stress village hall reception back home in North Yorkshire with all their friends and family. It was inspired by kid’s birthday parties and the groom’s pride and joy: His DeLorean!

“John didn’t want the pressure of organising a big wedding”, said Charlotte, “and I don’t think I could have organised a full on wedding day with out some kind of breakdown! So we decided to go to off and get married on our own. “We had booked our holiday to San Francisco before getting engaged and I had been Pinteresting things we could do there. I then made a joke about getting married while we were away… One thing led to another and the next thing I knew I was asking my mum if she would be OK with it!”

Secret Meadow Wedding in Slovenia with the Bride in Pink

Petra and Marijan wanted their wedding to be simple, with a vintage theme, and to be out in nature. They also organised and made everything for the wedding themselves.

“I was building ideas and getting inspiration from Pinterest for a year before the wedding,” began Petra. “However, once we started actually planning the wedding properly it all happened so fast with no delays; we made and organised everything in just two months!”

Their budget was €7000 and the couple did a lot of DIY projects for their wedding. “We made everything by ourselves and we also decorated everything the day before the wedding, which included the entire reception venue and outside where the ceremony took part. The whole of our wedding day was awesome so our entire wedding was our favourite part!”

Intimate Courthouse Wedding for $250!

Intimate Courthouse Wedding for $250! (22)

Paola and Ben wanted their wedding to be as intimate and relaxed as possible. By keeping the guest list low, doing DIY projects, enlisting the help of family and friends and not renting a reception venue they also only spent $250!

They further kept their costs down by having having their ceremony at a courthouse. “We didn’t really plan anything for our ceremony, instead we just tried to go with the flow as much as possible,” began Paola. “Going into it Ben was afraid that our ceremony with a judge wasn’t going to be as special, but we both actually got pretty emotional. The judge also happened to be an old family friend which was a funny coincidence! We were able to have our whole family sit in the room to witness and take as many pictures as they wanted.”

The bride put her own outfit together from a Halloween costume! “Although we were keeping costs down and trying to keep the day as intimate as possible, I still wanted a dress that would make me stand out at the courthouse”, she said. “My skirt was a part of a Halloween costume so it was on sale and my best friend, Jessica, did the alterations and added the tulle to to make it as poofy as I wanted it to be. My top was from Forever 21.

Megan and Brad wanted their wedding to be a blend of natural, industrial and vintage, with a nod to the wabi-sabi aesthetic; the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. They were inspired mostly by modern industrial and moody botanical styles. They also knew they wanted to get married in New York City, where they met and have lived for some time.

“When we began researching venues we discovered the beautiful Greenpoint Loft only a few blocks from our apartment and knew that it was perfect for us,” said Megan. “We fell in love with the warm industrial aesthetic and the fact that we could totally create the wedding we’d envisioned in the open space. Plus, there was a perfect view of the NYC skyline from the windows and deck!”

Music and Art Inspired Brazilian Wedding with a Flash Mob! (17)

Mary and Caio lived next door to each other for twelve years before they had their first date! For their wedding they brought together everything they love; art, music, friends, family, décor and vintage. They had an art gallery of Mary’s paintings, an old Volkswagen in the fields, five bands (which had the groom playing in all of them!), friends leading their ceremony, craft beer, décor items from their house… and they partied for nine hours straight!

“I’m a painter, just like my father and my grandfather,” began Mary, “so in the long corridor at the main entrance of our wedding venue, we hung up more than 40 paintings and turned it into an art gallery. We wanted the first impression people had of our wedding to be related to art and for them to get to know more about my family heritage. We also had 14 paintings inside the main dancing hall.”
