Josefin and Dirk described their wedding theme as ‘Princess-on a Horse Fairytale, Bohemian Rock n Roll Late Summer Flower Dream Paradise Wedding’ (!) “We love the sun, bohemian style and colourful flowers” began Dirk. “We wanted a mix of this with a focus on music, horses, and the outdoors.”

The couple actually had two weddings. They got married officially in the US in June and had this celebration back home in Germany in September. “We had a special moment for just the two of us at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, then celebrated in Las Vegas” the bride said, “but it was always our plan to have another ceremony with all our family, friends and beloved people shortly after that to make them part of our union as well.”

Disco Jelly Car Wedding at Burning Man

Disco Jelly Car Wedding at Burning Man (30)

Bunny and Sarah were married at Burning Man Festival. Their theme was based on their Disco Jelly Art Car that they made for their camp. “Getting married at Burning Man was very unusual!” said Bunny. “The environment and elements, such as heat, wind and dust (sometimes all at the same time!), made the wedding very different and challenging. During the ceremony a dust storm came, but we didn’t thinking about pausing for a second. It made our moments very raw and unforgettable.”

The couple were married in front of a giant spinning heart, “For our ceremony location we chose an art piece in the shape of a spinning heart made by Eric Zann” explained Sarah. “The ceremony itself was very relaxed and our friends made it even better than we ever imagined. One of our friends was our officiant, another friend played the guitar, and another one recited his speech in German, even though no one understood German!”

Manda and Harry didn’t have one specific wedding theme, they brought lots of things that they love into the mix. “Our wedding was a combination of VW Campervans, the 1950s, festivals, geekiness, colour, food, foxes and a hearty dollop of glitter!” said the bride, “We also wanted to use local produce, local flowers, and local vendors because we love Somerset and wanted to celebrate it too.”

The couple were married at Glastonbury’s town hall, “The main hall where our ceremony was held was so beautiful it didn’t need any extra decor. There were also all these amazing hanging baskets surrounding the entrance: when we left the building as Mr and Mrs Steele we felt like we were in a film.”

The reception was held in a circus inspired striped marquee next to a big pink house, “The house was filled with quirky furnishings and the chequerboard floor hallway to our rooms gave off a very ‘Alice in Wonderland’ vibe” she continued. “I love Volkswagens ALMOST us much as I love Harry (maybe more when he’s out of earshot), so a VW Campervan presence at the wedding was a must. When our guests arrived at the reception they were greeted by the Cream Tease Bus serving massive homemade scones and damn fine coffee. Later, we had a second VW Campervan serving ice cream.”

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.”

“We began the day with a non-religious, unscripted ceremony which was very short and sweet” explained Melissa. “We didn’t have a rehearsal, we just organically said our vows in front of our favourite people, then went right on to cocktails! We had the open bar set up outside in the garden and the weather was perfect.”
