Sebastian and Wiebke hosted their ceremony in the bride’s parent’s garden, followed by a reception at a local restaurant. Their theme to be a colourful garden party inspired by pop art.
“Our wedding theme was inspired by our living room and the art in it”, said the bride. “We both like Roy Liechtenstein and we were inspired by him to use primary colours and to have speech bubbles. The stripey pattern that became our signature wedding pattern started when we made our Save the Dates. It was based on an album cover (Die Ärzte by Planet Punk) combined with Liechtenstein’s colours.”
“Other than that we aspired to make everything look and feel light and cheerful. Since our tastes in stationery and decorations are quite different, we tried to achieve a synthesis of both of our tastes. Sebastian likes sleek professional design and I love cute and colourful handmade things.”
Melissa and Jay hosted their wedding in a family home. They wanted their wedding to be as vibrant and colourful as possible, with a Mexican fiesta theme and touches of Dia de los Muertos.
“Jay is really into skulls and I love his heritage and bright colours so we really wanted the wedding to be a good mix of both of us”, said the bride. “So many couples tend to embrace muted, classic colours for their weddings but we did not! We also wanted to nod to our family unity. That was really important. The venue was incredibly personal as it was a family home.”
If there’s one thing I know for certain it’s that the brides (and grooms!) that read this blog sure do love colourful weddings. Which is why I’m convinced you’re all going to flip out over this adorable retro inspired wedding shoot. Submitted by Zoe (The Little Vintage Car Co.), Aneta (BrightSide Photography) and Lizzy (The Flower Story), this shoot was set up so they could flex their creative muscles and create something fun!
“The theme for the shoot was ’Head in the clouds’ a name inspired by our model’s stunning turquoise hair and our fluffy cloud installation”, they explained. “The aim of this shoot was to mix the elegance and style of a 1950s wedding with a big and bold jewelled tone colour scheme. We didn’t want to recreate a wedding from the 1950s, but wanted a fresh take on a traditional vintage theme.”
