There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing weddings like this. Ones with truly unique ideas and styling, and ones that so very clearly express the style and mutual awesomeness of the couple! Roxanne and George were married in London on Halloween but then went home to Romania for a big celebration.
“Our wedding was non-traditional, cool, funny, colourful and with loads of love and fun”, said the bride. “We wanted our wedding to reflect who we are. We had this wedding party three days before our two year anniversary.”
“Our small team of ‘fashion and other demons’ (helpers!) were responsible for the groom’s vest, my dress and accessories, and even dying my hair. They also helped with all the decorating.”
Music festival lovers Cris and Vlad wanted their Romanian wedding to reflect their love of going to, and playing at them. “The inspiration for our wedding was music festivals, Woodstock in particular”, said the bride. “My husband proposed at Sziget Festival, in a tent, at 3 am and I am in a band so it made perfect sense.”
“We had LOTS of little details at the wedding, all of which were inspired by music festivals and bands we love. Each guest received a wristband and we even had an ‘Official Merchandise’ stand where were had CDs, badges, cups and t-shirts for our guests to take away. We arrived in a VW van and most of our guests camped over.”
Romanian born Anca and Dan were married in the oldest (and probably smallest!) church in Bucharest, followed by a laidback, retro-inspired reception at a bar. The inspiration for the day was their mutual love of music and the 1950s.
“Our wedding was a fairytale”, began the bride. “Inspiration came naturally because we focused on our love for colours, music and vintage elements. We got a lot of help from Rock n Roll Bride too! Our ceremony was at Bucur Church, the oldest (and in our opinion most beautiful) church in Bucharest. It was a classic Orthodox religious ceremony in the smallest church one could ever imagine.”
Ioana and Nick, from Romania, had two wedding days. They did their legal ceremony in May, on the groom’s birthday, and had a big celebration for all their friends and family in July, on the bride’s birthday!
“We did most of the planning ourselves”, explained the bride. ” We had tons of pictures and ideas, and we changed our mind a million times! There wasn’t really a theme, we blended the ingredients as we felt it would represent us. We added things on the way and gave up others.”
The party was held at Sun Garden Resort in Cluj-Napoca and their biggest expenses, because they were most important to them, we’re the flowers, the band and the DJ. “We spent around €2000 on the entertainment and €3000 on flowers”, said the bride. “One of the reasons why we chose the band we did was because their concert was our first gig together.”
Anda and Paul had a nature themed wedding in the Transylvanian countryside. They love all things rustic and are fanatical about DIY so it was the obvious theme for their big day. They were married at a church and afterwards they both jumped onto a home made chariot (a chair strapped to a board attached to the back of Paul’s bicycle) to head to their outdoor reception.
“We wanted to go to the church on two separate bikes and to come back on a tandem bike”, began the bride, “but because I couldn’t ride my bike while wearing the wedding dress, Paul found the solution: the chariot! He made the project himself and built it with the help of his father. We had so much fun with it and it was actually our favourite moment from the day.”
