colourful-diy-wedding-with-a-biscuit-theme-45

Nikki loves biscuits. So much so that she built a business on designing things with them on! So when she married artist Michael in May, she knew their wedding would somehow have to reflect her obsession!

“We wanted a casual day, surrounded by the people we loved. We were inspired by creativity and our love of art and design,” she said. “We were inspired by all of the things that we love. We wanted to share our story with our guests through our combined creativity.”

The ceremony was in their own back garden. “We had a humanist ceremony in our back garden. Somehow we managed to squeeze in 90 of our closest family and friends! Having our ceremony outdoors was weather dependent, but we were lucky – the sun split the sky just in time for our vows!”

“Our wedding was meaningful and representative of our relationship”, said the bride. “We also had a dash of purple and gold as our colour scheme. I tried to incorporate things we love throughout such as tattoos, so we had a temporary tattoo booth. We both like baseball, but love two different teams so I had bobble heads made to represent them both. Since we share a love for music, having the wedding at the music venue we met at was awesome. We made a concert poster and custom guitar picks as favours. Noah is a beer fanatic so we had beer koozies as favours too.”

“Our wedding was unplanned, smiley, full of love and dinosaurs!” said Lynette. “We just wanted everyone to enjoy the day and be happy. We spent less than £500 too. We were pretty impressed with ourselves. We are not materialistic people and the whole day was just about us and the fact we were getting married. We just invited the children and James’ mum. We just wanted minimum fuss and the whole day to be about us, our love and getting married. We wanted the day to be special to us and to only have each other and a couple of guests made it a much more intimate and special day in our eyes. Plus, now we can spend the money we saved on travelling and adventures!”

“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.”

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.”
