Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony (19)

The most important part of the wedding day for Katherine and Andrew was the ceremony. Both Christians, this is where they put most of their energy and the bit they enjoyed the most. For their reception they wanted something colourful, fun and inspired by the beach.

“The inspiration for the wedding was just us!” said the bride. “We wanted something colourful, fun and family-focused by the seaside. Anything we loved, we included. We had random Disney references and a Pixar short movie playing while we signed the register, we picked colours we loved and had a Lindy Hop first dance. There were board games and face mat coasters, balloons, fake tattoos for people to put on at the reception, succulents in teacups (I grow my own at home and we are both avid tea-drinkers!) The watercolour stationery nodded to our artistic sides, and we had some references to Brighton – the city I’ve lived in all my adult life that we both love. The table names were the countries we are travelling to on our 8-month sort-of honeymoon.”

Alternative Disney Themed Wedding

Alternative Disney Themed Wedding (26)

Viki and Ben’s wedding day was princess themed, but with added personality. Their official theme was ‘Alternative Disney’ and they were inspired by The Magic Kingdom and the fact that Viki, who is covered in Disney tattoos, had always adored the idea of a huge sparkly dress and a beautiful backdrop. Their cake was Beauty and the Beast themed, the bride’s dress was the Cinderella gown from Alfred Angelo and they took their photos with a Disney inspired prop book.

Their ceremony was held in a National Trust building, and for their reception they just wanted everyone to relax and enjoy the party, rather than having anything too structured or formal. “Our ceremony was held at Rufford Old Hall which is a National Trust building, so all proceeds of the day go towards the upkeep of the building”, she said. “It was held in the Great Hall and we had just 65 guests. However, our favourite part of the day has to be our reception. We had a huge party with all our family and friends. Everyone had an amazing time and they all danced until the very last song. Having all our favourite faces in one room was just fabulous.”

Colourful Disney meets Harry Potter Wedding

Sophie and Callum had a Disney inspired wedding with a budget of just £4500. They didn’t go mad on the decor, but included small nods to their love of Disney and Harry Potter.

“I’m a lifelong fan of both Disney and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until around three years ago that Callum finally got around to reading the series and now I think he can recall more wand-lore than me!” Sophie laughed. “We are both giant nerds – we game together, we read together and we movie marathon together. I think we successfully infused ‘us’ into a pretty kick ass party.”

The main DIY projects that I did were the Disney themed centrepieces, Lupin’s briefcase (which we used for cards), the Be Our Guest mirror table plan, and the Sleeping Beauty book replica which we used as a guestbook filled with Disney postcards. The first three I actually managed to put together fairly quickly but the book took forever because I had to do it in stages to let it dry properly. I was super proud of the end result though.”

Tattooed Disney Themed Wedding

Tattooed Disney Themed Wedding (45)

Lovers of all things Disney, Sarah and Jerrerd knew they had to have a Disney themed wedding. “We got to Disneyland and Disney World together every year and the movie Up is our favourite”, said the bride, “hence the mailbox and the adventure badges for our pins at the wedding. We also both have Disney tattoos  and our two pups are named Meeko and Tug after some of our favourite characters.”

“It’s also something our wedding party shares in common with us. The morning of the wedding while we were getting ready all the girls all played Disney songs and talked Disney tattoos! Around 90% of our wedding party was tattooed which made for some really fun and interesting photos too.”

Low Key Wedding at Oxford University

Oxford University Alternative Wedding (20)

They met whilst both studying at Oxford University, so when Xandra and Steve got married that’s where they wanted to do it. “We met at the Oxford University Mountaineering Club during our undergraduate studies,” said the bride. “We had just moved to Edinburgh, so our initial plan was to have the celebrations there. Because we were not too familiar with the city, we found ourselves looking at wedding-packaged things, which felt too traditional. We eventually decided on Exeter College as a venue because it is a special place for both of us.”

“So many people told us that the wedding felt ‘very us’, and that was the biggest compliment”, she continued. “We wanted to have fun, and incorporate things we love, such as Harry Potter, and Disney. We also wanted to pay tribute to our love of rock climbing in some way. We ended up sending our cake makers a sketch of a climbing-inspired cake, with ‘ropes’ of marzipan lining each layer, and 2D mountains on top inspired by a Poosac mountain pillow that was our first purchase for our flat when we moved to Edinburgh.”

Disney, Pokemon and Star Wars Wedding in Israel

Disney, Star Wars and Cat wedding (11)

Ravid and Avishai were married in Tel Aviv, Israel. They wanted the day to represent them so that meant Star Wars, Disney, Pokemon, Cats and J-pop!

“It was important for us that the wedding represented ‘us’ and the things we like”, Ravid explained. “In the end we called it (behind closed doors) the ‘Ravid and Avishai ball!’ It was a mix of things we love; Star Wars, Pokemon, Scott Pilgrim, Japanese boy bands, Disney… I guess you could say it was a geeky-fairytale themed wedding.”

“I spent a lot of time looking for ideas online, but we had a strong idea of what we wanted the wedding to be like from the beginning. The design was inspired by fairytales, Disney movies and romance books; the reception was inspired by glam-pop parties we usually go to. We wanted the wedding to be based on our relationship and the things we grew to love together.”
