“We decorated the venue with flowers from our mum’s gardens, and succulents and plants from Leeds market in spray painted tin cans” she began. “We also a lot of bright and super cheerful plastic flowers from Leeds market which were £1 a bunch! We saved lots of money by having so many fake flowers and it’s nice to still have them in our house.”

My Little Pony, Rainbows & A Bride in Bunny Ears

my-little-pony-rainbows-a-bride-in-bunny-ears-19

There’s nothing I love more than seeing brides wearing the collection I designed with Crown and Glory on their wedding days (except maybe wine, but that’s a completely different story and not relevant to today’s wedding…) So when Vicky and Andy’s adorable Asylum Chapel wedding landed in my inbox, and I saw that Vicky was sporting some rather fabulous Liberace ears. I knew I had to share it!

The funniest thing is, Vicky was actually wearing bunny ears when she and Andy first met! “We met in a pub and were introduced by a mutual friend about fifteen years ago”, she explained. “For some reason I had on bunny ears – so knew I had to incorporate a pair in our day somehow!”

“In terms of our theme, at first I joked that it should be ‘Ponies and Rainbows’ but then it kind of stuck! Our 11 bridesmaids were all dressed in different colours of the rainbow and our dear friend and bridesmaid, Jules, made us a My Little Pony and rainbow wedding cake!”

“Everything about the day reflected ‘us’ and was a joint effort including the dress shopping! Our invites took their inspiration from our tattoos, the table centres were based on our favourite things including: Twin Peaks, Marvel and DC comics, Tim Burton, Jay and Silent Bob. Our readings were a poem by Bob Marley and a soliloquy by The Log Lady from Twin Peaks. I walked down the aisle to Gigantic by The Pixies.”

Colourful & Glittery Family Focused Wedding

glittery-family-focused-wedding-14

The inspiration for Mary and Alex’s colourful wedding was family. Having two kids, it was important to them that they were involved and enjoyed the day too.

“From the start we wanted a party where we happened to get married”, explained Mary. “We have two children now and we wanted them to be the main focus, as family is so important to us. I love colour and glitter and I wanted this to be all over the venue. I was often asked what my colour theme was and my response was ‘all of them!’ We also described it as ‘when a unicorn pukes glitter’ which I think we pulled off but in a quite a subtle way.”

“Lots of people avoid kids at weddings but ours was completely the opposite for us with nearly 20 invited to the day and well over 30 in the evening. This made the focus about them and having fun, something we hope our children will hold fond memories of for life.”

The bride wore a short, retro inspired dress but she customised it with a pink and teal petticoat, a Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory Liberace belt and even gold glitter trim around the neckline! She teamed it with gold Irregular Choice shoes and a rainbow gem birdcage veil.

Rainbow Pastel Candy Stripe Wedding

I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen a bride and groom match their wedding outfits quite so deliberately. I think they look totally adorable! Kerry’s dress and Pete’s waistcoat were custom made for them by Miss Brache who dyed the fabric to their choice of colours.

“Our wedding theme is very difficult to pigeonhole”, began the bride. “We didn’t really have an overall theme in mind except that we wanted it to be colourful and fun. Rainbow pastels featured a lot but we also had a shabby/festival feel… a barn dance… and a little Mexican twist! We were inspired by my love of all things colourful. My stripy wedding dress and a matching groom isn’t something you see every day, but it was so ‘us’.”

Can we all just stop for one second and INTERNALLY SCREAM over how frickin’ awesome this bride looks? Rainbow dreadlocks and a rainbow wedding dress!? I’m dead.

Chalaina (nickname, Rainbow Brite, because of course) and Chris were married in October in Portland. “The inspiration for our wedding was rainbows!”, said the bride. “We chose not to do many traditional things. We walked down the aisle together, because we are equal partners. Our officiant was wearing rainbow faerie wings and as she pronounced us life partners, waved her faerie wand around us. We also had performers who spun fire poi, hoops, and fire batons.”

“We were married in a beautiful gazebo at a Victorian mansion. We walked down a covered aisle into the gazebo together. Our officiant began the ceremony by thanking everyone who was there and those that were there in spirit. She then talked about the importance of the commitment and what marriage means today. She had us say our vows, and we then exchanged our rings.”
