Secret Meadow Wedding in Slovenia with the Bride in Pink

Petra and Marijan wanted their wedding to be simple, with a vintage theme, and to be out in nature. They also organised and made everything for the wedding themselves.

“I was building ideas and getting inspiration from Pinterest for a year before the wedding,” began Petra. “However, once we started actually planning the wedding properly it all happened so fast with no delays; we made and organised everything in just two months!”

Their budget was €7000 and the couple did a lot of DIY projects for their wedding. “We made everything by ourselves and we also decorated everything the day before the wedding, which included the entire reception venue and outside where the ceremony took part. The whole of our wedding day was awesome so our entire wedding was our favourite part!”

Pink Flamingos Warehouse Wedding

A bride in a pink dress, bridesmaids in outfits covered in flamingos, a warehouse venue decked out in colourful DIY decor, a ceremony conducted by the bride’s father… This wedding is just – wow!

Caragh and Ryan were married at Woodside Warehouse in Glasgow. “Our wedding was an epic flower, flamingo, pineapple colour-smash!” said the bride. “We knew we wanted something different, but to begin with weren’t quite such what that meant. We got engaged in December 2015 and married in May so after the initial engagement excitement we had about 4 months to actually get stuff planned. That meant we had to look a little out the box.”

“Woodside Warehouse was the first and only venue we saw, we fell in love with the big spaces and flexibility, it really inspired us to be creative. Plus we knew as it was so big we had to make really big things to fill it. With it and the caterers taking up most of our budget we also knew that our wedding was going to be very DIY. I’m from a very creative and artistic family so that was really exciting. My mum used to be a jewellery and textile designer so she was incredible at helping make things, or at least figure out how to make things! Plus we’ve got an army of friends and family who were up for rolling up their sleeves and helping us do stuff!”

Rach and Tim’s DIY wedding took place on the bride’s family farm in New Zealand. It had a 1950s rockabilly theme. “It was important to us that we had a fun and relaxed atmosphere”, said Rach. “We learnt how to do a rockabilly dance as our first dance!”

“Our ceremony was funny and sweet. The celebrant asked us what we loved about each other and then put that in to her speech at the wedding. My nephew read He’s Not Perfect by Bob Marley.”

“Our wedding was a boho chic, natural gipsy and vintage theme”, said the bride. “We used recycled materials such as my grandmother’s chairs, my dad’s table and my aunt’s tea cups. The whole family looked in vintage markets to find things for the décor. It was great that everyone was involved. It wasn’t just our party, it was everyone’s party!”

Alternative Woodland Wedding

Alternative Monks Barn wedding (43)

Alex and Maddy had different ideas about what their wedding should be like, but luckily they learned to compromise! “When we first started discussing the type of wedding we wanted, we realised we were on opposite ends of the spectrum”, explained the bride. “Alex would have been more than happy with a simple registry office with minimal guests whereas I wanted something where we could celebrate with all of our friends and family, where I could feel a bit like a princess for the day! In the end we agreed on a rustic woodland theme and kept to a relatively small budget considering the size of our guest list. We had 105 people (big families!).”

“We decided to throw out all of the typical conventions and plan a wedding that was ‘us’. Alex didn’t want much to do with it (events aren’t his forte) so he gave me a list of his requirements (which were pretty much ‘Hog roast’ and ‘No hats or fascinators’) and I set to work with making the rest of it fall in to place.”

“I don’t feel our wedding was particularly unique or cutting edge, but it was completely right for us and our family and friends. It was a relaxed chilled out day with LOADS of personal details. Having our three year-old daughter involved in the ceremony was really special. She helped tie the knots around our hands during the handfasting part.”
