Intimate Halloween Wedding with 30 Guests

Family focused gothic elopement (27)

There’s something all together extra lovely about the simple, love-filled weddings… The ones without lots of extra details like centrepieces, cakes and fancy receptions… The ones where the couple just really want to get married and so do it on their own terms. So when I saw Jon and Jess’ intimate wedding, which was held at their friend’s house with minimal money spent, I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

“We had a small wedding with maybe about 30 people, just our parents, siblings and some family”, began Jess. “I also made the food for dinner, so we didn’t have it catered. I wore a black wedding dress from shein.com.”

Katherine and Andrew wanted their ceremony to be intimate but their reception to be a big party with musicians that they love playing all night. They were inspired by Rock n Roll, cemeteries and gothic architecture. The ceremony was held at an iconic cemetery near where they live.

“Neither of us had any interest in the conventions and constraints of a traditional wedding. We just wanted to be ourselves, have a short meaningful ceremony and a big party afterwards with lots of friends”, said the bride. “Our ceremony was very intimate, with only a handful of family and friends present, and was conducted by our dear friend Bryan.”

Sarah and Josh were married in 2004. After being together for so long, and having two kids, they decided to renew their vows in June of this year.

“We’ve been together a long time and our kids are out of the ‘little’ kid phase”, said Sarah. “I feel like we are entering a new chapter in our lives together as a family and thought this would be a great way to enter into that and also allow our children to be a part of such a special ceremony.”

“Josh is a tattoo artist and specialises in American traditional which uses bright bold colours. We both love Dia De Los Muertos art and Catholic art, which all use bright bold colours, too so what better than to go with that theme for our vow renewal? I knew we were going to have all these amazing bright flowers, so I wanted our attire to be pretty neutral. Plus I wore a red dress for our actual wedding, so I wanted to wear white for the renewal.”

Laidback Restaurant Wedding with 35 Guests

Colin and Tash wanted a wedding with good food, good wine and good people. They wanted it to be laid back and non-traditional and chose a restaurant as their venue. When she couldn’t find her dream dress in the usual places, the bride bought one on Etsy, and the groom ignored the traditional Scottish wedding dress code of a kilt, opting for tartan trousers as a nod to his late grandfather.

“We wanted the day to be solely about us and those who matter the most to us in the world”, said the bride. “With an 11 month old son, our wedding was celebrating us as a family, not just Colin and I as a couple. It was very intimate and although we both have big families we decided on only having our immediate family and the rest of our guests were friends. In all there were 35 guests and only 9 were our immediate family. We took all the things we love and incorporated them into our day”, she continued. “Harley Davidsons, Sailor Jerry, tattoos, good food and Beyonce (I walked down the aisle to Love on Top).”

Liam and Sarah wanted a small wedding which meant they only invited their closest friends and immediate family. They had a big party at a later date for everyone else.

“We didn’t want too much fuss and wanted to keep everything relaxed with lots of colour”, Sarah said. “When we got engaged we immediately said we wanted a small wedding so we could celebrate with our closest family in a beautiful place. We decided just to go for it so we booked the venue in February and got married in May! It was quite a quick turn around but we wouldn’t do it any differently.”

The bride made the cake and made the bouquets herself. ” I picked bunches of flowers I liked from supermarkets and then arranged them together and tied them with brown string to give them a soft rustic feel. The table flowers were provided by Donna Beaver Flower Studio. The cake was also made by me the day before the wedding. The kitchen was covered in rainbow coloured icing and my fingers were crossed the whole drive to the venue as I was nervous the cake might get squished at every turn!”
