Daisy and Graeme wanted a wedding with wanted no rules and no traditions, just a great big celebration with their friends and family. Their relaxed London wedding took place in East London.

“It sounds a bit cheesy, but our inspiration was each other” began the bride. “We were very stubborn about having things our own way, loads of our friends have had beautiful and amazing weddings, but we were adamant we wanted to have something that was completely inspired by us and not at all traditional.”

They were married at Stoke Newington Town Hall with their reception at The Roost in Dalston, which is already decked out in vintage props.

Yes, that’s right, Lizzy and Emma’s wedding was themed around Halloween and rainbows! It doesn’t get any better than that, right!? The couple were married on October 31st (when else?) at The Red Barn in Blindley Heath, Surrey.

“We have been to lots of lovely weddings but often found them to be quite similar” Lizzy explained. “We knew we didn’t want that. We wanted a Halloween wedding that was totally different. We had very unique outfits, there were skulls and pumpkins everywhere, and our little bridesmaids even carried Disney princess dolls instead of flowers because we knew they’d love that.”

“We had a spooky theme for all the decor. I made 50 metres of bunting and pumpkins were carved with the help of friends and family. I also designed all the stationery and tableplan with a spooky theme. Our tables were named after scary ladies such as Lily Munster, Scary Spice, Sue Sylvester, Maleficent, Pam from True Blood, Magenta from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Wednesday Addams. We also put people’s photos on their place cards which everyone liked.”

They wanted a laid back wedding with lots of food and drink, so Kara and Ash planned a festival inspired wedding for July. They had a small budget, but with a help and ideas from Rock n Roll Bride and Pinterest they were able to pull of a wonderful and really personal wedding.

“The day was about US!” began Kara. “It’s a day about our commitment to each other and we both just love a get together with good food, drinks galore and live music…so we figured we’d bring it to Scarborough with our friends and family. The thing we loved about our wedding was that it wasn’t just us that had fun – our guests really enjoyed it too.”

As transport, Kara’s mum drove the bride in her father’s old Haulage vehicle. “We had lots of unique details that were personal to us” she continued, “but one of the best was the vehicle that took me to the registry office. It was my grandfather’s and I was driven by my mum. It was taking its final delivery that day and it was a very memorable moment for both of us.”
