Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France

Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France (10)

Emilie and Vincent met when working in Hong Kong. They wanted their wedding to be fun, quirky and a mix of all the things they like. They didn’t choose a specific theme but focused on gold pineapples, skulls, star wars and street art and wanted their wedding to blend fun with tradition. The bride found her incredible dip-dyed dress in China when she was there on her hen do!

They were married in Emilie’s family home, which was built by her grandparents. “They are no longer with us and I thought it was a good way to honour them”, said the bride. “When I proposed this idea to my mother she was so enthusiastic. This house means so much to my family and is filled with so many good memories. It’s also in the South of France so was perfect for an outdoor wedding!”

Rainbow Roller Disco Brides

Spray paint… glitter… neon… If you like all things colourful then you’re going to adore this roller disco inspired bridal shoot!

“The theme of this shoot was a mash up of all of our favourite things”, said photographer Jessica Withey. “That meant glitter, rainbows, unicorns, balloons – like a dream you had when you were 4!”

“This shoot derived after a long year of working in the wedding industry. Each of us involved had a desire to shoot something ‘for us’, in our style – without being paid, and without a style brief from a client. Working in the wedding industry you wind up seeing a lot of weddings and after a while you’re ready to see something dramatically different. So we decided to shake some traditions up and get creative. Why can’t a bride wear a glitter parting in her hair?”

A Black Wedding Dress, Graffiti and Halloween in East London

A Black Wedding Dress, Graffiti and Halloween in East London (32)

Ailsa and Ben were married in Shoreditch, London. The bride ditched the traditional white dress, opting for a custom made black one! The wedding was on October 31st, so had a few touches of Halloween, but it wasn’t overly themed.

“The wedding had a general East London vibe with graffiti elements”, began the bride. “Our prominent backdrop for the main room at the reception was a projection of a piece of graffiti that we created in Paris, where Ben proposed exactly one year previously. Our inspiration was our personalities and tastes, and the date – my favourite day is Halloween. We both have a passion for art and graffiti, so we tried to bring than in too. Ultimately the warehouse-style venue looked great as a blank canvas, so we wanted to work with that.”

“We’ve received a lot of comments about the individuality of the day – the warehouse venue, the black dress, the Bavarian beer house dining arrangement, the mass-karaoke sing-a-long in the evening. Many people said they’d never been to a wedding like ours, but ultimately we wanted to throw a party to celebrate our love for the fabulous people we have in our lives. In the end our favourite moments were actually the ‘traditional’ elements – the ceremony and the first dance.”

The wedding shoot, organised by the bride herself, took place in France, near Lyon. She wanted something colourful and different for her bridal party shots.

“We wanted COLOURS”, she said. “We also wanted a location that would have character. We found this old factory with no roof and instantly loved it! We wanted to have different vendors that we trust working on the photos. I had long fluid dresses in mind which would be in opposition to the structure of the factory which was very square, hard and partially destroyed.”

Colourful Fazeley Studios Wedding

Colourful Fazeley Studios Wedding (38)

Lucy and Sean were married at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham. A bright, white and modern interior, this venue was the perfect backdrop for them to put their own colourful stamp on.

“We’re both music lovers and our favourite bands influenced the table decorations and the music that shaped the day”, Lucy began. “There was nothing too formal or traditional, no pastels and no cutesy bridesmaid dresses! Whilst many venues do a lot of the work for you with their set wedding packages, Fazeley Studios let us run wild and create our perfect day.”

“I would describe our wedding theme as bright, fresh, bursting with clashing rainbow colours and a dose of rock n roll”, she continued. “We had gigantic helium balloons with brightly coloured ribbon lining the aisle – until one of them exploded just before the ceremony! It gave those already gathered a shock and it was a good job I didn’t hear it – I’m terrified of balloons popping! We decided to have them lining the room for the meal instead of in the centre of the tables after that!”
