BYO Village Hall Wedding in Scotland

pink haired bride uk wedding (16)

Victoria and Alan were originally planning to marry in June. However after organising everything for a year, Victoria fell pregnant so decided to push back to October, after their son had been born.

The wedding took place in a village hall in central Fife, Scotland. “We’d originally planned a big castle wedding”, the bride began. “However once I fell pregnant and we pushed the day back, we decided to scale everything back and spend less. The last thing we wanted to do was worry about the costs. After all we now had a new born to look after! We ended up in a village hall having a BYOB (bring your own booze!) party.”

“I’d say the theme was a bit vintage, rustic and inspired by the WW1 era”, she continued. “I looked online for ideas, searching for how they might have styled their weddings in 1914. We wanted to give our day a modern twist too though.”

Princess and Pirate Punk Wedding

pirate punk wedding (24)

Jo and Jonny had a wedding like no other – it had a princess pirate punk theme! They were married in Belfast in November.

“Our wedding theme would be best described as a princess marrying her pirate in a punk fairytale!” said Jo. “We got our biggest inspiration from looking at what we DIDN’T want. We decided we didn’t want to spend thousands of pounds and we definitely wanted something that represented us and made us happy. We looked how we wanted and we only invited the people who were really important to us.”

“The one thing we wished we’d known before starting to plan was just how utterly crazy people get around weddings!” she laughed. “We’ve had kids and knew that babies can bring out some crazies from the woodwork, but nothing compares to the amount of opinions you will get from other people when you tell them you’re having an alternative wedding!”

Pretty in Pink: A Vintage Village Hall Wedding

Pretty in Pink Tattooed Wedding - Photography by Vicki (68)

Oh 
Danni and Ben, your wedding gives me LIFE. I am so excited to share it on the blog today.

This gorgeous heavily-tattooed pair were hitched in Maidstone, at a venue called Kent Life. “Our wedding theme was a bit of a mixture of 1950s, rural farm life and a tea party!” said Danni. “We love the 1950s anyway, I have a huge collection of dresses already and we just love the music and the dancing. I really love that our wedding was personal to us and wasn’t generic.”

“One of the highlights of the day was our fire breathing burlesque dancer!” she continued. “That’s pretty different to most weddings! We just wanted to be ourselves and also to make sure there was a lot going on all day. I would never want anyone to say they were bored, so we had wooden games, a sweetie table and a Rat Pack tribute. We also had close up magic and it really created such a great atmosphere with people crowding round and laughing!”

Obsessing over Latvian designer Katya Katya Shehurina‘s incredible wedding dresses is something I’ve been doing for a long time. Based in London, they specialise in breaking tradition with their bridal wear by bringing a fresh new look to vintage and boho styles. So, when they sent over these images of their dresses modelled by a gorgeous pink haired, tattooed babe which were photographed exclusively for Rock n Roll Bride, I was thrilled beyond belief.

If you’re still looking for your dream wedding dress then you’re going to want to check these out. Their elegant and slim yet unstructured silhouettes are super flattering, and their mix of exquisite French lace, Italian silk and hand embellished Swarovski detailing is second-to-none.

To me, there is nothing better than being able to completely customise the dress you walk down the aisle in. After all, being a Rock n Roll bride is all about being yourself, and being individual, so why would you want your wedding dress to be exactly the same as someone else’s?

Not only do Katya Katya Shehurina offter a bespoke service, but they can change anything on their made-to-order gowns too. If you want a neckline tweaked or a sleeve length altered, they’ve got you covered. Small changes can make a huge difference to how a wedding dress looks and they love to encourage their brides to let their imagination run wild so they end up wearing something truly unique.

They also offer the option for you to inject some colour into your outfit with their interchangeable coloured slips, which can be worn under any of their designs. They are not attached to the dresses so you could even buy more than one colour to change up your look throughout the day! How about wearing a white or nude slip for that traditional church ceremony and change into a blue, pink or even black one for the evening? They can make slips in any colour too so you an match it to your wedding theme!

Bohemian & Geeky South African Game Lodge Wedding

Chirese and Jannie had a fully DIY wedding at a game lodge in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains in South Africa. Their theme was bohemian and creative with a hit of geekiness thrown in for good measure.

“We chose to do a lot of the planning ourselves, by calling upon our family and friends to help out where needed”, began the bride. “Pinterest and blogs were a saving grace for us as we would easily share ideas with everyone involved. We got married at Shumba’s Rest Game Lodge in the lakeside chapel overlooking the sunset of the African bushveld. Our reception was at the main thatch roof hall at the lodge.”

“The aim was never to break away from the traditional wedding in the formal sense of the word”, she continued. “We just chose to combine the things we love as a couple and as individuals, such as his love of all things geeky and my love of all things funky! We both love Game of Thrones and Vikings and movies like Avengers so these were the inspiration for both of our hair styles!”

1950s Rockabilly Wedding at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum

Retro Ironbridge Gorge Museum wedding (42)

Patrick and Hazel love the 1950s and rockabilly style so they wanted to bring this into their day. When watching Grease one day, the bride also decided she needed a carousel at the wedding! Luckily they found  Blists Hill Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum in Shropshire which came complete with a fun fair!

“Our day was mainly about everyone having fun, so we made entertainment a priority for all ages to join in with”, began the bride. “We love our family and friends and wanted our day to be as memorable for them as it was to us. The other factor we took into account was that it had to be based on who we were. We started planning to the usual traditional path and quickly realised it was to normal to resemble our everyday life, so we scraped the planned and started from scratch.”

“We’ve always loved 1950s rockabilly style and that became our new basis for the wedding, Then one day I sat and watched Grease and did a bit of a bridezilla by demanding that I had a carousel! We started researching and found that it would be far too expensive until we found out that the museum down the road that had a Victorian fun fair with a carousel held weddings! It was perfect. Having the fair there was actually great for our guests too. We’ve been to lots of weddings and have noticed that there is always a quiet lull for the guests while the couple go to have their pictures taken. We wanted to fill the gaps by keeping the guests entertained and having the fair was perfect!”
