Jay and Wisia had a Pagan ceremony in the woods. They wanted their wedding theme to be folklore and fantasy inspired without being too cheesy.
“There’s a fine line between themed and fancy dress”, laughed the bride. “Our special day was a cross between Viking and Elvish visual themes with elements of Pagan.”
“We were inspired by our love for one another and the love that surrounds us from all the incredible people we know. Other than that, it was influenced by our favourite films, TV episodes and books such as LOTR, The Hobbit and Vikings. We were also deeply inspired by our favourite place to be together… the woods!”
“There are several things that we did that were particularly unique whilst staying very ‘us'”, she continued. “First of all we picked our own surname. We became Mr & Mrs Ælfær (an old English name meaning ‘whole’ that we had chosen together).”
Isabela and Felipe’s Brazilian wedding had a casual and boho vibe. They were married at a concert venue in Sao Paulo. The day was simply a mash up of things they both liked.
“We didn’t want anything uniform or traditional”, said the bride. “Our venue, Centro Cultural Rio Verde in Sao Paulo was not a usual wedding location so that was different too. It’s a place where lots of independent concerts happen. About three years ago, when we’re just starting to see each other, we went to a concert there and commented that it’d be pretty cool to get married there. That comment was never forgotten!”
Heather and Bill’s New Jersey wedding could not have been a more perfect example of a Rock n Roll wedding if it tried! The blue haired bride and her punk rocker groom’s big day was inspired by their love of music.
“Bill and I connected over our love of music”, said Heather. “When we first started talking, we used to swap CDs with each other. Right before we started dating, he bought me Nine Inch Nails tickets for my birthday (pretty much the moment he had my heart). We see a concert about once a month, our living room is decorated with band posters, I play guitar and ukulele, he plays guitar and keys, and it’s a constant debate over who has better music on their iPod (it’s me!) Since it’s such a major part of our lives, it made sense to make it our wedding theme.”
