Colourful Comic Book Wedding in Two Parts

Colourful Comic Book Wedding in Two Parts (18)

Cheryl and Andy had two celebrations, their legal ceremony with just close family in America, followed by a big reception back in the UK. Their budget was £4000 which included their outfits, the venue, all the decor and catering for 135 people (they served pies so it came in at under £8.50 a head!)

“Our main inspiration, for both weddings, came from our love of tattoos, comics and music”, said the bride. “It was just one big reflection of our personalities. We weren’t going to have a theme as such, but our love of comics and comic TV series and films did come through!”

“We found it hard to do something that hadn’t already been done so instead we just focused on things that were special to us. For the wedding in the States, it was unique as we stayed at The Stanley Hotel where Stephen King wrote The Shining. We had our wedding dinner there too before the ghost tour around the hotel. It was such a cool place, they had a channel that just played The Shining all day! You could just imagine the twins walking the corridors. For the reception in the UK we did scrap a lot of tradition. There weren’t any speeches, we didn’t have a first dance (we bounced on space hoppers instead to our mate’s skiffle band!) and we didn’t have a table plan – guests grabbed a pie from a vintage van and sat wherever they wanted!”

Vegan and Eco-Friendly Wedding with Fire!

Vegan and Eco-Friendly Wedding with Fire_enchanted_brides_photography (41)

Sarah and Ben hired a small farm in North Wales as their venue. As vegans, serving a vegan menu was of the utmost importance, so they self-catered the whole event! They wanted to do things as eco-friendly as possible too so collected decor items from charity shops, utilised things that already owned, and DIYed practically everything.

“We wanted our wedding to reflect our interests and personalities, and to feel relaxed and comfortable for our guests” said Sarah. “In doing so the end result was an aesthetic that felt very much like our home. We chose colours and textures that we liked, used the wedding as an opportunity to regularly trawl our favourite charity shops for vintage glassware to decorate the tables, and made as much as possible ourselves. We tried to source everything as ethically as we could and spent our money with small independent businesses via websites such as Etsy and by sourcing our bread from a local bakery.”

“We’ve been following Rock n Roll Bride for years and have always been inspired by other couples who have gone against the grain and had their weddings exactly how they wanted. We felt that our wedding should be a true reflection of ourselves. We’re not big fancy people so we didn’t want a big fancy wedding. We were (and continue to be) inspired by mismatched colour and print, 70s boho vibes and quirky DIY touches. We also wanted to include some Chinese décor and traditions to pay tribute to Ben’s family heritage.”

Wes Anderson Inspired Winter Wedding

The inspiration for Nicole and Theo;s winter wedding was the colour palette of the Wes Anderson film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Other than that they just wanted the day to be relaxed.

“We used the reds, blues, and yellows of the film throughout the wedding”, said the bride. “We had a winter wedding in February, which meant being prepared for a cold, rainy, dreary day. In the end, the rain held off, but we did have a number of big yellow umbrellas on hand!”

“There were some DIY elements to the wedding, including hand crocheted hearts in our wedding colours. These were sprinkled on the tables during dinner, and I was pleased to see guests wearing them and taking them home. We also had some retro elements, including hand-assembled bags of penny sweets as favours, which my family helped me assemble while jet-lagged a couple days before the wedding!”

Celestial, Crystal & Bohemian Wedding in Dublin

When jewellery designer Kayleigh married Neal in Dublin, they picked a theme to reflect the bride’s passion. Being obsessed with raw crystals and metallics meant they ended up with a theme that included stars, crystals and a touch of boho.

“We really didn’t want a traditional wedding with a church and hotel ballroom, it’s just not us”, said Kayleigh. “Even though it turned out a bit more traditional than we thought, I think our personal touches made it our own. We didn’t want to feel like strangers at our own wedding. The main thing for us was for it to be cheap (we planned everything on a shoestring!) and easy for our guests, and for everyone to have a nice chilled time.”

Elli and Oli’s wedding was inspired by the letter B (for Bates, their surname) and with a colour palate of soft pinks and peach.

“We bought all the props secondhand, or used things we (and our friends) already had at home such lanterns, fairylights and birdcages”, said Elli. “We had all sorts of things starting with B, from the bridesmaids books to plastic bugs we painted green and put tiny hearts on (lovebugs!) My bridesmaids and one of their boyfriends even helped me decorate a 3 foot tall free-standing B with flowers, as well as folded 400 paper cranes! One of the other bridesmaids created our dog Isabelle’s outfit and she definitely was the cutest one there!”

The bridesmaids all wore pink dresses of their own choosing to match the theme and the whole venue was decked out with plenty of flowers and foliage. “I’m Italian and Oli is English so we also want a bit of a English/ Italian theme. We wanted our wedding to reflect us, so we picked all the things we like and threw them in the mix. Our florist helped with this and we had olive trees and wine baskets filled with herbs on the tables. The venue looked and smelt amazing!”

Eclectic, Colourful & Intimate Vow Renewal

Sarah and Josh were married in 2004. After being together for so long, and having two kids, they decided to renew their vows in June of this year.

“We’ve been together a long time and our kids are out of the ‘little’ kid phase”, said Sarah. “I feel like we are entering a new chapter in our lives together as a family and thought this would be a great way to enter into that and also allow our children to be a part of such a special ceremony.”

“Josh is a tattoo artist and specialises in American traditional which uses bright bold colours. We both love Dia De Los Muertos art and Catholic art, which all use bright bold colours, too so what better than to go with that theme for our vow renewal? I knew we were going to have all these amazing bright flowers, so I wanted our attire to be pretty neutral. Plus I wore a red dress for our actual wedding, so I wanted to wear white for the renewal.”
