Seriously Pretty Bohemian Barn Wedding: Sara & Jeremy

barnwedding_nikitagross040

Their budget was only $7000, but that didn’t stop Sara and Jeremy organising one of the most gorgeous barn weddings I’ve ever seen! “The most unique part of our wedding is how many people came together to help create all the details”, said the bride. “So many wonderful friends helped make things from decorations, DJ, photographer, cakes, and even marquee, to really give our wedding a handmade feel.”

“The groom’s band performed the father-daughter dance. Most weddings people want to detach from the wedding details and have other people make and do the stuff. We wanted to be creative and intimate with all of our wedding planning. I think this really made our wedding day feel authentic and comfortable. People enjoyed looking at what they helped with and being a part of our big day.”

“Even though we don’t look like everyone else, we feel like normal human beings having a normal but super-special wedding,” began the bride. “Our theme was black and white and the number 13. We love the number 13, it’s our very special number so we got married in Friday 13th.”

Spaghetti Themed Pirate Wedding in Poland: Ola & Aaron

83Alex & Aaron - PinkClouds.co.uk

The massive variety of weddings that I get to feature is one of the best things about running this blog. I also love that nothing is off limits! A spaghetti themed wedding where the couple were married by a pirate in a courtyard in Poland? Oh go on then!

“My outfit was a too short white dress, and old leather belt which cost me 50 cents from a flea market in Morocco, stripy tights, cowboy shoes from Mexico and earrings and a necklace made from dried pasta and coloured with nail polish!”, began the Ola, the bride. “Aaron wore plaid pants, a ruffled tux shirt, a leather vest and a used car salesman jacket which all came from a thrift store. His belt was from Transylvania!”

“My bouquet was made from spaghetti and we didn’t serve cake – just giant pots of spaghetti which we made ourselves! In terms of entertainment we had a gypsy folk band, ping-pong, alcohol, a friend doing henna and a spaghetti fight!”

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has been trying to get official status in Poland and we were the first wedding of its kind in Warsaw”, she explained. “We were married by a pirate, while dressed as pirates, and people threw spaghetti. Then we ate (different) spaghetti. Other than that, it was perfectly normal.”

Handmade Woodland Wedding: Dean & Helen

Dean and Helen wanted to focus on the details of their outdoor, camp site wedding. They put their hearts and souls into hand crafting (with the help of friends and family!) a wedding day that really reflected them and everything they love.

“We have been a couple for so long that we wanted our wedding to reflect us”, said the bride, “but we didn’t really have a theme as such. We both wanted an outside venue that people could stop over as there is nothing more disappointing at a wedding when your just getting started and the music gets shut off and everyone goes home. We only looked at one venue and as soon as we found Woodland Tipis and Yurts we fell in love. It wasn’t a wedding venue, but it was exactly what we wanted so we went for it.”

Suzie and Marc were married in Cork in June. They wanted their wedding to be fun, with hints of the 1950s. They were inspired by their favourite movie, The Quiet Man, for their overall retro theme.

“Our wedding was a Irish festival with fifties touches”, began Suzie. “Everything was unique in the sense that we wanted to make it our own and completely different to any other wedding we’d been to. Our venue was Glengarriff Lodge in Cork and was the perfect setting for our wedding as it is steeped in history. It is the former hunting lodge of The Earl of Bantry and is located on a man made island surrounded by The Glengarriff River and one of Ireland’s only ancient natural forests.”
