Ellie and Sean’s two-day wedding took place in Eddinburgh. They were married at the Lothian Chambers and hosted their reception the day after back at their own home.

“We knew we wanted to incorporate the colours yellow, purple and grey in to the wedding and for there to also be some unicorns”, said Ellie. “Other than that there wasn’t really a theme.”

“We decided to have our wedding photos taken in the Museum of Scotland. I really wanted some photos under the T-Rex (I played roller derby and my derby name is TeaWrecks) and I’m lucky my husband is my silliness partner in crime and agreed. We walked each other down the aisle, we wanted to start our marriage as we mean to go on, as a team.”

DIY Wedding with a Love Heart Theme

Shen and Eva’s wedding was inspired by Shen’s love of red hearts and how they’ve decorated their home. “After I purchased my dress (the red one), and as an extension of our home decor, we had lots of love hearts everywhere in the wedding”, said Shen. “The day had a little bit of us all over it – from Marvel to Minions with some vintage cameras (as a nod to my work) and music thrown in. Everyone said to us how personal it all was with all the little touches,”

“I think for me the main thing I loved about our wedding was probably our dresses”, explained Eva. “They really stood out! We originally both said we were going to go for fitted suits because neither of us are particularly girly, we are forever in jeans and shirts. Shen came across a limited edition dress online from Vivien Of Holloway, she showed me and I really liked it too. When I saw Shen in it, I was completely blown away, she looked stunning! At that point I was still thinking of wearing a suit but seeing her in it convinced me I should get a dress too.”

The bride wore gold sequined dress and the reception had a vintage woodland theme, yep Sarah and Olly’s wedding was truly one-of-a-kind! They were married in Brighton in August.

“Our wedding was a vintage woodland, and a mix of decadent and wild”, said the bride. “We didn’t set out to make our wedding different though, we just wanted to get our friends and family together and celebrate.”

“The day developed from us both adding creative touches which made it unique. I meticulously planned, designed and handmade the décor, decorated the cake and made props. I used ivy and ferns as table runners, wood, sprayed gold tea pots, flowers and mushrooms to decorate the tables. Olly utilised his graphic design skills designing the invites, the guest book and the place names.”

“Our wedding has always centred around friendship”, said Lily. “We knew that we would sacrifice detailed luxury over guest numbers as living on two continents for equal parts of our lives means that we’ve collected quite the community of amazing people along the way. Our friends are like family and our family are like friends. We wanted a celebration that would reflect our love and appreciation for all those people and one that would also reflect a little bit of all of them in one creative way or another.”

Mystical Fairytale Wedding in a Cave

I doubt many of you will have seen a wedding venue quite like this before because Ellie and Charlie got married in a cave! More specifically at the Underground Lake in Carnglaze Caverns, Cornwall. They also didn’t tell their guests where the ceremony was going to be held beforehand.

“We wanted our wedding to be a journey of discovery for our guests”, said the bride. “We asked them to dress to a certain colour palette and suggested they have fun with what they wore such as incorporating fairy lights or creating an animal mask!”

“On the day we set them fun tasks too. The first was to help us make the food for the wedding breakfast (we have some very talented cooks in the group, we would have hated to have wasted that!) and secondly to decorate their hard hats for the ceremony. At this point they were all still unaware of the location of the ceremony (although they may have had their suspicions from the task) and would only find out where it was upon their arrival by taxi.”

Relaxed and Simple Art Gallery Wedding with the Bride in a Suit

http://www.amyfaithphotography.com

Hannah and Paddy’s Manchester Art Gallery wedding had a laid back, super cool vibe, one that perfectly reflected them and their relationship. The bride in particular, wanted to feel like herself on the day so she opted to wear a sharp white suit from The Kooples rather than a dress and she didn’t carry a bouquet.

“Our wedding was lush, relaxed, simple”, she said. “We had a lot of monochrome, but also a lot of greenery, which really complemented the gorgeous art work in the gallery. We wanted a pared-back and clean atmosphere, but that kept away from the clinical side of minimalist.”

“We scattered eucalyptus on the tables and used as part of the name cards, so the room smelled amazing. All our tables were named after our favourite Manchester pubs and bars, so the Top Table was ‘Temple’, which is an amazing underground bar on Oxford Rd, and Paddy’s favourite place in the world. We hired in some extra lighting, so the stone walls of the gallery had a really warm orange glow as the night came in.”
