Princess and Pirate Punk Wedding

pirate punk wedding (24)

Jo and Jonny had a wedding like no other – it had a princess pirate punk theme! They were married in Belfast in November.

“Our wedding theme would be best described as a princess marrying her pirate in a punk fairytale!” said Jo. “We got our biggest inspiration from looking at what we DIDN’T want. We decided we didn’t want to spend thousands of pounds and we definitely wanted something that represented us and made us happy. We looked how we wanted and we only invited the people who were really important to us.”

“The one thing we wished we’d known before starting to plan was just how utterly crazy people get around weddings!” she laughed. “We’ve had kids and knew that babies can bring out some crazies from the woodwork, but nothing compares to the amount of opinions you will get from other people when you tell them you’re having an alternative wedding!”

Eclectic and Rustic DIY Country Wedding

DIY Wedding Esme Mai (10)

John and Louise wanted a rustic, barn wedding and Sledmere Barn in Yorkshire was perfect for them. The venue was a real ‘blank canvas’, meaning they can completely free reign on how they decorated it.

Sledmere barn was the first place we visited and we didn’t need to see any other locations – we loved it!” said the bride. “The barn has some gorgeous details, brick archways, wooden beams, old hooks and nails dotted everywhere. It is open on one side but to protect us from the elements the manager said he would build us a hay bale wall!”

“Our wedding theme was simply about us, our friends and family, our loves, our lives and our memories”, she continued. “We made everything we could ourselves, and used an eclectic and rustic country theme to pull everything together. We called in a lot of favours from people, not necessarily to save money but to just make everything as personal as we possibly could.”

Classic Wedding with a Touch of Rock n Roll

Classic Wedding with a Touch of Rock n Roll (17)

People always ask me what makes an ‘alternative wedding’. I think a lot of them assume that the label must only apply to the most ‘out-there’, wacky and crazy weddings and that it’s all jumping out of planes or all-out goth themed days. While, of course, I adore featuring those types of weddings, I also really love sharing the ones that just have a few personal, quirky touches. Just like Corbyn & Lucas’.

They were married in September at the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit. “Our wedding was themed around Love and an indoor garden party. We also had lots of gold”, the bride said. “One of my favourite moments was our ‘first look’ where Lucas was blindfolded (so he didn’t actually see me before the ceremony). Just being able to hug him and have a quiet moment to hold each other, away from everyone and everything going on. It was a beautiful moment. Our ceremony, in the golden hour light in front of the conservatory was also amazing.”

Last weekend was amazing! I have never been more exhausted, but after being at the Manchester National Wedding Show on Saturday and Sunday I’ve remembered how much I really, really love getting out of the office – ha! It was such fun being surrounded by other wedding obsessives, meeting new suppliers and of course hanging out with you lot! To everyone who came along, visited our stand, said hi, took a selfie with me, bought a magazine or ordered a veil, I LOVE YOU.

I’ve had two days back at home, trying my best to catch up with my emails and work (and failing miserably) and today we’re back on the road and heading to London Olympia for the next show this weekend! It kicks off at 10am tomorrow and runs all the way through to 5pm Sunday.

Want to know what you can expect if you come along? We made you a little video!
