Colourful Back Garden Hello Kitty Wedding

Vikki and Jason had two weddings – one in the UK, where they both now live, and one in Auckland, New Zealand at the groom’s family home.

“We had two full weddings – so two ceremonies, two walks down the aisle, two top tables and rounds of speeches and two cakes!” explained the bride. “With New Zealand being so far away we just felt that we couldn’t only have one wedding because some family members wouldn’t be able to travel that far and we didn’t want them to miss out.”

The total budget for both weddings was around £5500 with £2000 being spent on the New Zealand part. “It was difficult trying to plan a wedding in a country that I had never been to, and with a family I had never met, but luckily Pinterest and Rock n Roll Bride really helped me get the message across of what I wanted to achieve. My mother and sisters-in-law were amazing in getting our brightly coloured vision and our laid back family garden BBQ wedding theme.”

Hello Kitty Pop Up at Cutter and Squidge

This isn’t strictly a wedding related post, but when I shared some snaps from my visit to the Hello Kitty pop up cafe in London, I had so many comments and questions about it so I thought I’d share a few more photos.

It would also make such a fun alternative hen do activity, or like we did, as a little pre-wedding dress shopping treat. We were in London to do some wedding dress shopping for Sophie so it worked out really well doing both at the same time (cake also helps you make better decisions don’t you think?)

Hello Kitty Wedding!

Caroline might just be the world’s biggest Hello Kitty fan, so when she married Daniel in June, there was only one theme she wanted! They were married in Northern Ireland and the first thing they organised was her dress.

“I never really thought I would get married, so I literally had no idea where to start”, she said. “I had a lot of personal battles to get through before the big day arrived, mostly about how I see myself. I have always been overweight and I’ve had my confidence knocked. I knew I would never be the typical beautiful bride, but honestly, planning the wedding helped me so much overcome my fears and I learned to embrace who I was.”

Rustic and Hello Kitty Themed Wedding

Baby always wanted a Hello Kitty themed wedding but her fiancé, Simon, wasn’t so keen on the idea! Instead she added a few subtle touches (like her adorable bouquet) to their July wedding, while the rest of the styling suited both their tastes. “I think the idea we were going for was mainly rustic but with a few really cute touches, such as Hello Kitty, a candy buffet and animal balloons for the kids”, the groom explained. “Baby wanted just a Hello Kitty theme, but I wasn’t too chuffed about it, so it ended up as a mix!”

With the bride being from Hong Kong, and the groom from Poland, the wedding day was the first time their families actually met. “As everyone was coming a long way from Hong Kong and Poland, we decided to rent our venue for a full five days and have a mini holiday, while getting married on one of the days. It didn’t turn out to be much of a holiday, as me and Baby were especially busy, but it was still a blast for everyone and everybody got to know each other better.”

Super Kawaii English Country Garden Wedding: Abby & Hoi

You might think that there’s nothing more traditional in English weddings than a country garden setting, but Abby and Hoi’s big day was anything but quaint! They took the traditional elements and turned them on their head. From the bride’s short polka dot dress and purple hair, to the Hello Kitty cake and the vintage ice cream cart for dessert, this was a wedding that was quintessentially ‘them’.

“The inspiration for out wedding was to tell the story of how we met”, began the bride. “As well as to share the memories we have made with our family and friends. Some of the props we used were personally belongings from my granddad. We used his seeder plant boxes and Wellington boots to put flowers in.”
