The theme for Juli and Cody’s wedding was very easy for them to choose – comic book superheros! They were married in July at the bride’s parent’s home.

“We are both super nerdy”, explained Juli. “We both have a love for video games, board games, table top games, Dungeons and Dragons and comics! We decided that we didn’t want our wedding to look like every other wedding and that it needed to be something that fit our quirky personalities. We decided on comic books, especially after I figured out how to make flowers out of comics.”

“We wanted it to still feel like a classy wedding, but wanted to subtlety include comics and superheroes wherever we could. We also decided not to have one maid of honour or best man. Every girl and guy in the wedding was considered a best man or maid of honour because we are best friends with all of them and we’re a really tight knit group of friends.”

Super Colourful Dinosaur and Superhero Wedding

Super Colourful Dinasour and Superhero Wedding (38)

Aimee and David had a fun, colourful and playful wedding in October. They wanted their day to be as fun as possible for their guests, and to reflect their personalities. “We did what we wanted and didn’t feel pressured to do things because it’s deemed ‘traditional'”, explained Aimee. “I didn’t want bridesmaids. I have loads of amazing friends but I just didn’t feel the need, and I didn’t want their partners to feel left alone and awkward on the day, plus it saved money. I don’t regret my decision at all.”

Although it rained on their day, the bride was happy about it! “We were secretly pleased it rained on the morning of our wedding as we really wanted an indoor ceremony but the venue were encouraging it to be outside (weather permitting of course). The gardens at Little Hermitage are stunning but equally the interior is so beautiful and we really preferred the idea of being inside as it felt cosier for our 50 guests, plus I didn’t want my hair to get windswept. So the rain meant we got our own way!”

“Neither of us had any interest in the conventions and constraints of a traditional wedding. We just wanted to be ourselves, have a short meaningful ceremony and a big party afterwards with lots of friends”, said the bride. “Our ceremony was very intimate, with only a handful of family and friends present, and was conducted by our dear friend Bryan.”

Gothic Wedding at the Morbid Anatomy Museum

Gothic Wedding at the Morbid Anatomy Museum (31)

Kim and Maik wanted their wedding to be non-traditional and were inspired by Rock n Roll and all things morbid. They described their wedding theme as ‘goth’, with a focus on the colour black. They hosted the day at a really unique venue – the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn!

“I’m super into all things morbid, so lots of black was a must,” explained Kim. “Maik isn’t as into that stuff as I am but being the sweetheart that he is he pretty much went with everything I suggested. We just wanted things simple but that we felt conveyed a sense of who we are. We are both creeps so we wanted that to come through. I don’t think anyone was surprised.”

“We had a very short ceremony officiated by one of my best girlfriends from San Francisco, Jackie. Originally we were going to write our vows beforehand but both kept putting it off, so in the end we agreed to just keep what we said short and simple. Maik forgot half of what he wanted to say and I couldn’t say too much because I was already crying before I even walked out! I had my two younger brothers give me away and Jackie read pre-scripted vows that included a quick candle lighting ceremony and great quote from Doctor Seuss.”

If you want to avoid the (sometimes scary) bridal shop experience the internet is your friend when it comes to finding your dream gown. Not only can you often find things cheaper (online retailers don’t have the overheads that bricks and mortar stores do) but the options tend to be much more creative – endlessly so in fact!

However finding somewhere you can trust to order a wedding dress online can be tricky. How do you know if the dress your ordering will arrive looking as you expected? How can you guarantee the quality of fabrics used will be up to scratch? How will you know if it’s even going to fit you?

Chilled Out Three-Day Glamping Wedding

Chilled Out Three-Day Woodland Wedding (12)

Dara and Vince had a three day wedding, the first being their legal ceremony followed by a woodland blessing and party a couple of days later. Their woodland ceremony was officiated by the bride’s dad. They wanted something chilled out and natural and having a longer event meant their guests could really get to know each other.

“We both have very different styles and tastes so we decided not to stick to any rigid theme”, the bride explained, “but we always knew that we wanted everything to feel very chilled out and natural. I work in a very visual way so I made loads of scrapbooks and Pinterest boards of woodland weddings and rustic, vintage themes that I could show to our vendors but really the venue was already so beautiful that we just tried to work everything around how it looked already.”

“For our second ceremony we had it on the morning of the second day in Camp Katur’s woodland ceremony area. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and everyone was gathered on tree stumps and wooden benches in the ceremony area where Vince was there to greet them. My Dad was our officiant, he is known as a bit of a joker and he has a keen interest in theology without being very religious, which was perfect as we aren’t religious and we wanted to keep everything personal and light-hearted rather than strictly ceremonious.”
