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.”

Lynette and James’ wedding was quintessentially ‘them’. They were married with just the bride’s brother, the groom’s mum and their two children as guests. Their son wore a dragon onesie and their daughter fluffy ears and a tail. The bride wore leopard print leggings under her dress. After their short ceremony they all went to a local restaurant for lunch together.

“Our wedding was unplanned, smiley, full of love and dinosaurs!” said Lynette. “We just wanted everyone to enjoy the day and be happy. We spent less than £500 too. We were pretty impressed with ourselves. We are not materialistic people and the whole day was just about us and the fact we were getting married. We just invited the children and James’ mum. We just wanted minimum fuss and the whole day to be about us, our love and getting married. We wanted the day to be special to us and to only have each other and a couple of guests made it a much more intimate and special day in our eyes. Plus, now we can spend the money we saved on travelling and adventures!”

DIY Wedding with a Love Heart Theme

Shen and Eva’s wedding was inspired by Shen’s love of red hearts and how they’ve decorated their home. “After I purchased my dress (the red one), and as an extension of our home decor, we had lots of love hearts everywhere in the wedding”, said Shen. “The day had a little bit of us all over it – from Marvel to Minions with some vintage cameras (as a nod to my work) and music thrown in. Everyone said to us how personal it all was with all the little touches,”

“I think for me the main thing I loved about our wedding was probably our dresses”, explained Eva. “They really stood out! We originally both said we were going to go for fitted suits because neither of us are particularly girly, we are forever in jeans and shirts. Shen came across a limited edition dress online from Vivien Of Holloway, she showed me and I really liked it too. When I saw Shen in it, I was completely blown away, she looked stunning! At that point I was still thinking of wearing a suit but seeing her in it convinced me I should get a dress too.”

“Our wedding has always centred around friendship”, said Lily. “We knew that we would sacrifice detailed luxury over guest numbers as living on two continents for equal parts of our lives means that we’ve collected quite the community of amazing people along the way. Our friends are like family and our family are like friends. We wanted a celebration that would reflect our love and appreciation for all those people and one that would also reflect a little bit of all of them in one creative way or another.”

Love’s Highway: Eloping in the Desert

The desert is one of my favourite places. It wasn’t always (dusty, dry, hot..!), but after visiting Nevada four or five times now, I’ve finally succumbed to it’s charms. It’s just so enormous and spectacular! It’s the kind of landscape that you’ll never see anywhere else so is it any surprise then that so many couples opt to drive out there for their wedding shoots?

This wedding inspiration shoot was put together by planner/ stylist Paloma Cruz Eventos. “The idea behind this shoot was a couple eloping in secret”, she explained. “This couple doesn’t follow the rules!”
