Retro & Disney Inspired Wedding on Southend Pier

Charlotte and Jack’s wedding had a really unique location – Southend Pier! The day had a retro theme with Disney references throughout. “Our wedding theme was ‘Grease meets the Great British Seaside!'”, said the bride. “We were inspired by lots of wedding blogs, especially Rock n Roll Bride! We saw so many couples who had a day that reflected them and that’s what inspired us to plan a wedding that people would describe as completely us. Also, we saw so many weddings that looked like they and the guests were having a total blast, so we wanted to have a day full of fun!”

The wedding was held at the Royal Pavilion which is located a mile out to sea! “Pretty much every guest has said that they’ve never been to a wedding like ours before. Lots of people thought it was really cool that we were getting married on the pier. I also think the amount of handmade decorations is something that makes our wedding really different too, and so much of it was made by the Groom’s crafty mum that it was really special.”

A San Francisco Elopement, A Yorkshire Village Hall Reception & A DeLorean!

Charlotte and John decided to get married while on Holiday in San Francisco. They had just a photographer there as their witness. Afterwards they planned a low-stress village hall reception back home in North Yorkshire with all their friends and family. It was inspired by kid’s birthday parties and the groom’s pride and joy: His DeLorean!

“John didn’t want the pressure of organising a big wedding”, said Charlotte, “and I don’t think I could have organised a full on wedding day with out some kind of breakdown! So we decided to go to off and get married on our own. “We had booked our holiday to San Francisco before getting engaged and I had been Pinteresting things we could do there. I then made a joke about getting married while we were away… One thing led to another and the next thing I knew I was asking my mum if she would be OK with it!”

Fifties Rockabilly & Pin Up Wedding

Monica and Charl’s South African wedding was a fun mix of the 1950s, rockabilly and pin up. The bride has always been obsessed with the era and she idolised Marilyn Monroe, so it was like the perfect theme for them.

“I always wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe on my wedding day”, she explained. “I also love vintage cameras and radios so I thought it would be really cool to incorporate the vintage goods with the 1950s stars to give the feeling of going back in time.”

“When we started planning the wedding the one thing I kept repeating to myself was ‘I want to be different, stay true to who I am’. With this in mind, we tried to stay away from the everyday wedding trends. I feel that I accomplished this by having a ‘2-in-1’ dress. It was long for the ceremony but we changed the skirt for the reception to be a short, fifties style.”

“Our wedding was a culmination of everything we love”, said the bride. “Music, fashion, classic cars, dancing, tattoos, comfort food and big parties… We threw in everything! I would say our theme was a 1950s vintage rockabilly and DIY extravaganza! Everyone said this was the most DIY’ed wedding they had ever seen, as well as the only rockabilly wedding they had ever experienced.”

Pinwheels & Pugs: An Old-Timer Funfair Wedding

Pinwheels & Pugs An Old-Timer Funfair Wedding (20)

Sandra and Hendrik were together for 12 years before they were married. They met in August 2004 at a funfair and distinctly remember the smell of popcorn filling the air. They wanted to recreate their first meeting at their wedding, so decided it should be funfair themed. They also wanted their wedding day to be a celebration with their loved ones while listening to great music and, of course, with the smell of popcorn in the air again.

“It was a funfair wedding through and through,” explained Sandra, “We wanted to share our feelings from 2004 with everyone. The day I saw him for the first time, both of us were on the funfair in Herne which is in the Ruhr Area. Both of us were and still are children of the funfair, through and through.”
