Eclectic and Floral Wedding

There’s one thing you’re all going to notice right away with this wedding – the bride’s amazing, and enormous, flower crown! I mean, wow!  The best part is she made it herself. “After being quoted different prices from several places, my sister and I decided to give it a go ourselves”, Robyn explained. “We ordered the artificial flowers online and bought a headband from Claire’s Accessories. After a few nights of pinning and gluing, on occasions having to de-glue our fingers and thumbs from the headband, we finally mastered the skill of using a glue gun and the headpiece was complete!”

The rest of Robyn and Lewis’ wedding, held at Eaves Hall in Lancashire was just as colourful. “Our wedding was a bit of a mix of vintage and floral an a quirky edge.  We both love anything olde worlde so any pictures or ideas we saw from Downton Abbey or out of books we added to our collection.”

Rustic, Bohemian & Music-Filled Wedding

Amy and John wanted to be married outside and for their wedding to have a bohemian and rustic vibe. Both being massive music lovers, that was also always going to be a big part of the celebrations. They had a rock and blues band (who are all their friends) as their entertainment and the bride sang with them in the evening too!

“We met 11 years ago working at the same hospital”, began Amy. “We dated for a few months but decided to just remain friends. We stayed in contact over the years and then in 2014 we got back together and five months later we got engaged. Despite our years apart with always knew we’d end up together… And so did our friends and family!”

The day was held at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire.  “We didn’t want a traditional wedding in a church or indoors so when we found our venue we fell in love with being able to get married outside underneath the bandstand and for all our guests to be seated on hay bales. We also didn’t want a standard wedding band, so we had a rock and blues band play for us who just so happened to be our family friends. I guess what made it more unique is that I’d sang with the band before and I was able to sing with them on our wedding day. Most of the music played throughout the day was rock, blues and acoustic.”

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 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.”

“Our ceremony was short and silly while remaining sweet and genuine. As it started, Lance was walking down the aisle to the music from the end of Star Wars episode IV and asked the crowd ‘What’s up everybody?!? Are we ready for a wedding!?’ and started high fiving the guests as he continued down the aisle, which was then followed by the groomsmen and bridal party being greeted with the same clapping, cheers, and high fives. Later we were told by guests that that moment set the tone for the rest of the day.”

Indie Pub Wedding in Australia

The Wallace Hotel wedding (34)

Emma and Dion’s September wedding had a laid back, rustic vibe. It was held at The Wallace Pub and Hotel in Victoria. “Our wedding was relaxed, vintage and a bit random!” said the bride. “I looked at Pinterest and blogs for ideas but mostly we just did things that felt right.”

“We had a surprise Elvis impersonator perform at the reception, which everybody loved! We also made our own invitations and wedding favours which were little jars of homemade marmalade. Boy, was that a long and sticky night of work!”

“We saved money on a lot of things. We went local for flowers which in the end only cost just over $500, including flowers for all the tables. We hired a VW van which was only $200 because we asked a local car aficionado to drive me and didn’t go through a formal car hire company. We also had several different cakes instead of just one traditional cake which was a lot cheaper.”
