Laid Back Festival Inspired DIY Wedding

laid-back-festival-inspired-diy-wedding-56

They wanted a laid back wedding with lots of food and drink, so Kara and Ash planned a festival inspired wedding for July. They had a small budget, but with a help and ideas from Rock n Roll Bride and Pinterest they were able to pull of a wonderful and really personal wedding.

“The day was about US!” began Kara. “It’s a day about our commitment to each other and we both just love a get together with good food, drinks galore and live music…so we figured we’d bring it to Scarborough with our friends and family. The thing we loved about our wedding was that it wasn’t just us that had fun – our guests really enjoyed it too.”

As transport, Kara’s mum drove the bride in her father’s old Haulage vehicle. “We had lots of unique details that were personal to us” she continued, “but one of the best was the vehicle that took me to the registry office. It was my grandfather’s and I was driven by my mum. It was taking its final delivery that day and it was a very memorable moment for both of us.”

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.”

Barbora and Jakub were married in the Czech Republic, where weddings tend to be very traditional. Their budget was around £3000 and they decided they wanted to do things their way. The bride especially wanted to feel like herself on the day and so wore an outfit that she felt comfortable (and colourful) in!

“We did not keep any Czech wedding traditions and we arranged everything ourselves”, she explained. “Our day turned out exactly how we wanted it to be. We wanted it to express our characters and interests. Everybody was excited and amazed with our festival inspired wedding.”

Colourful, Retro East Yorkshire Wedding

April and James’ wedding was colourful and retro inspired with lots of fun details. The bride wore a dress by Kitty and Dulcie and a veil from Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory.

“We envisaged a really fun and happy day, which included things we loved and that fitted with our personal style and tastes”, said the bride. “Generally the more colourful, vintage-y or kitsch the better! I spent a huge amount of time trawling through antiques stores, jumble sales, and charity shops for things that caught my eye. I love a bit of bric-a-brac! The owls were a result of a walk in the park one afternoon too. We stumbled upon Owl Adventures doing a public flying show – it just seemed like a fun thing that people would enjoy so we made the spontaneous decision to book it there and then!”

The couple ditched a lot of traditional elements and kept things as relaxed as possible. “We didn’t have a first dance, cake cutting, formal seating at the reception, or a typical three course meal situation!” April continued. “We didn’t even really have many group photos. We just wanted it to be easy going, and so we scrapped any elements that we didn’t want or that made us feel uncomfortable. And well, I guess I haven’t been to many weddings with the combination of owls, pizza and a bouncy disco!”

Ellie and Sean’s two-day wedding took place in Eddinburgh. They were married at the Lothian Chambers and hosted their reception the day after back at their own home.

“We knew we wanted to incorporate the colours yellow, purple and grey in to the wedding and for there to also be some unicorns”, said Ellie. “Other than that there wasn’t really a theme.”

“We decided to have our wedding photos taken in the Museum of Scotland. I really wanted some photos under the T-Rex (I played roller derby and my derby name is TeaWrecks) and I’m lucky my husband is my silliness partner in crime and agreed. We walked each other down the aisle, we wanted to start our marriage as we mean to go on, as a team.”

Hair stylist and make up artist Dafna, explains, “The inspiration behind the shoot was to demonstrate how we envision a perfect wedding day preparation, where the groom and bride get pampered and beautified together, along with their best friends.
