Relaxed Fun Party Vibes

Hannah and Trent were married at Matilda Bay Reserve in Perth, Western Australia. They hired furniture and knick knacks from Turtle and the Pelican and Maisey Collections to furnish the outdoor space. They also borrowed lots of props from friends.

“The two biggest factors to us choosing our venue were that we were able to bring our own booze and there was no curfew which was very difficult to find in Perth”, began the bride. “A friend suggested to look at public reserve spaces and hiring a marquee. After booking Matilda Bay Reserve I felt that a marquee would look tacky and ruin my vintage look with all the dark wooden furniture items, which then lead me to find Zest Event Design who hire out tipis. I fell in love instantly but due to the price we could only get one, which was fine for a cocktail setting. The tipi looked amazing suited the vibe and was well used. We danced in the tipi till 4am in the morning!”

Vintage Victorian Wedding on Halloween

Halloween Wedding_C&G Weddings-202

Scott and Hayley were married on Halloween but they didn’t want to make the obvious choice to have a spooky themed wedding. Instead they were inspired by vintage pieces (the bride wore a dress from the 1940s), and Victoriana with a Rock n Roll twist. Of course there were a few autumnal touches such as pumpkins on the tables, but overall it was just a reflection of everything they love.

“We wanted our wedding to be different and not traditional but also show our personalities”, said the bride. “We collected vintage props for the tables but the venue, The Roost in Dalston, also had lots of quirky pieces of furniture and props that we could use. Music was also a big influence we spent months creating our perfect playlists for each part of the day.”

Alternative and Vintage Inspired Wedding

Lorenzo and Jodie met on a dating website. Their first date lasted 48 hours and they’ve been inseparable ever since! For their September wedding they wanted something to reflect their own style, so that meant something was relaxed, alternative and vintage inspired.

“We both wanted the wedding to be about our guests in a relaxed atmosphere but with a vintage theme (there was lots of browsing on Pinterest!)”, said the bride. “We wanted to express our personality throughout the day, which included little quirky props and all tattoos on show!”

“Our ceremony was very relaxed with a fantastic, friendly registrar. We didn’t have any personal vows but even without them, it was very emotional.”

Great Gatsby Wedding on a Budget

Natalie and Lewis not only planned their wedding very quickly, but they did so with a small budget and grand ideas! Not really liking traditional wedding colours or themes, they pulled together a Great Gatsby inspired day with a budget of £6000.

“I love the Great Gatsby and the 1920s so we based the wedding loosely on that”, said the bride. “Lots of lighting, peacock feathers and sparkly things. I don’t particularly like ‘wedding colours’ so I dressed my bridal party in metallics and kept our bouquets white with greenery and peacock feathers to break them up a bit. The chairs at the village hall were black and gold with a shell pattern which matched perfectly, which was lucky as I hate chair covers with a passion. We also had some Thai influences as my friend Joy is so talented at fruit carving and we love Thai food.”

“We planned the entire wedding very quickly but we were pretty laid back about the whole thing. The only time I was actually properly stressed was the day before, as I was on a course for work and my phone rang constantly for four hours! We were lucky in that we got all of the suppliers we wanted at short notice, I think having a January wedding helped! I think I booked the caterers two weeks beforehand.”

1960s Inspired Retro Cinema Wedding

Bianca and Lachlan’s met over a mutual love of 1960s music, “We were both in a record store 11 years ago and somehow a very shy and introverted Lachlan made his way over to me (not at all shy or introverted) and struck up a conversation. We discussed 1960s music, our love for the Beatles, books, films and politics!”

They were married in February this year and wedding was inspired by all of these mutual loves, but particularly the 60s and films. “We absolutely adore the 1950s and 1960s so right from the beginning we knew that the wedding would have a reflection of those tastes”, explained Bianca. “I spent hours looking online at old wedding photos from both eras which gave me the inspiration for my dress, headpiece, gloves and veil along with the inspiration for our magnificent cake!”
