Halloween Harvest Festival Wedding

Halloween Harvest Festival Wedding (36)

Tara and Rob were married in October and themed their day around an autumnal Halloween harvest festival. The date was particularly important as it’s when they met in 2007, and also when they got engaged in 2015. They both love Halloween, and the beginning of autumn when the colours start to change.

“We wanted our wedding to be a true representation of us and not at all generic”, Tara said. “I didn’t want to wear a traditional wedding dress, we had a zombie cake topper (which I saw on Rock n Roll Bride) and my sister, who was my bridesmaid, gave a speech to even up the male heavy speeches!”

Nautical Punk Rock Festival Wedding

Jess and Dan were married in a big top tent, in a field in Nympsfield, Gloucestershire. Their wedding theme was ‘rockabilly ska-punk festival’ as they were inspired by their love of punk-rock, 50s style, Polaroid photography, leopard print, tattoo culture, music and festivals.

In tattoo culture an anchor means ‘something or a person that grounds you’ so their stationery was also based upon this idea, and their wedding rings had anchors printed on them. For a festival name they decided on ‘Tie The Knot Festival’ which linked their festival idea with the nautical feel from the anchor.

“We really went to town with the punk rock and festival elements by making line-up posters, stage time sheets and having security at the entrance to the field dishing out wristbands to guests as they arrived,” explained Jess. “We also had a festival logo designed which, as well as being on all the wedding stationery and the website, was made into patches by a friend and sewn onto denim jackets for me and Dan to wear later in the evening. We even had a version of it tattooed on our wrists in the run up to the wedding! We really focused on ‘brand consistency’ to help make it seem like a real festival and drum up excitement for our guests in the lead up.”

Hipster Inspired Elopement Shoot

Melbourne Elopement Shoot-Maria Luise Bauer Photography-100

This stunning elopement shoot took place in Melbourne and was shot and organised by German photographer Maria Luise Bauer.

“We used a gown from Georgia Young“, she said. “I totally love her work and always wanted to shoot with her dresses so I sent her an email a few days before flying to Melbourne, asking if we could meet up and if I maybe could shoot a little inspiration with one of her gowns. And she said yes!”

“This shoot was very spontaneous. I wanted to do something hipster-ish, and to be inspired by an elopement in the city. I wanted it to see free and non-traditional. I put together the flowers myself and kept them basic. I wanted to show that if you’re having a low budget wedding you can just do things yourself.”
