Bohemian Medieval Wedding with Archery & Snail Racing!

Bohemian Medieval Wedding with Archery & Snail Racing (11)

Sarah and Arran were married in August, after two years long distance between Manchester and Brighton. They wanted their wedding to just reflect them, have a venue with a brown sign, and be beautiful. For entertainment they had snail racing (!) and even made a DIY snail arena for the day!

Sarah told us all about their wedding. “At the start of our ceremony, I walked down the aisle Baba Maa, followed by lovely readings by Arran’s dad, and our brilliant friend Marie Harris who reworked Baz Luhrman’s Wear Sunscreen to describe how we met, as well as dishing out some great advice to guests and couple alike. At the end of the ceremony we danced back down the aisle to some banging Psy Trance!”

Romantic Memento Mori & Skull Wedding

Romantic Memento Mori & Skull Wedding (9)

Amber and Chris were married in October and took inspiration for their wedding from Amber’s vintage skull engagement ring. They wanted their wedding to feel old worldly, and described their wedding theme as a ‘Memento Mori Romance’. Roughly translated, ‘Memento Mori’ means ‘remember you must die’ and Memento Mori jewellery was given to loved ones to remind them that life is fleeting so to live each day to the fullest.

“We had a hard time describing the vision for our wedding to other people”, said the bride. “The second you say skulls in October everyone assumes Halloween or Day of the Dead. Don’t get me wrong we’re obsessed with both of these things, but we wanted to do something different for our wedding. Our family owned business, The Cupcake Gypsies, shows our love of Dia de los Muertos in full force! But we wanted our wedding to feel more old worldly so we thought ‘Memento Mori’ was the perfect sentiment to bring into our marriage!”

They wanted to keep their wedding small and local, and didn’t want the day to feel like a wedding at all, but instead a special day of bringing together their two families. They wanted it to be relaxed and laid back and to feel just like a big family gathering. They did away with a lot of traditions which they didn’t feel were necessary and only included what was important to them.

Coney Island Mermaid Wedding

Coney Island Mermaid Wedding (32)

Milica and Aleksandar met in a youth hostel in Belgrade, Serbia, eight years ago. Although they still live there now, they spent last summer in America, mostly in NYC, but also road tripping all over the states. They fell in love with Coney Island and decided to get married there. As they were so far away from home they couldn’t have many guests and instead celebrated with a small group of very close friends. But this also meant they had no big expenses and spent less than $500! They are planning another wedding for next year when they are back in Serbia, so they can celebrate with all their families and friends.

“We fell in love with Coney Island with it’s nice beach, magical vintage amusement park and its vivid history”, explained Aleksandar, ” so we decided to get married there. Then Milica was like ‘If we are getting married on the beach, I wanna be a mermaid’!”

Alternative Disney Themed Wedding

Alternative Disney Themed Wedding (26)

Viki and Ben’s wedding day was princess themed, but with added personality. Their official theme was ‘Alternative Disney’ and they were inspired by The Magic Kingdom and the fact that Viki, who is covered in Disney tattoos, had always adored the idea of a huge sparkly dress and a beautiful backdrop. Their cake was Beauty and the Beast themed, the bride’s dress was the Cinderella gown from Alfred Angelo and they took their photos with a Disney inspired prop book.

Their ceremony was held in a National Trust building, and for their reception they just wanted everyone to relax and enjoy the party, rather than having anything too structured or formal. “Our ceremony was held at Rufford Old Hall which is a National Trust building, so all proceeds of the day go towards the upkeep of the building”, she said. “It was held in the Great Hall and we had just 65 guests. However, our favourite part of the day has to be our reception. We had a huge party with all our family and friends. Everyone had an amazing time and they all danced until the very last song. Having all our favourite faces in one room was just fabulous.”

Eclectic Pagan Wedding with The Grateful Dead! (37)

Tiffany and Jared’s wedding was inspired by their eclectic tastes and their mutual love of world travel. They also incorporated elements of paganism, and The Grateful Dead!

“The entire wedding was DIY”, explained the bride. “As a production designer, it was a dream to design the venue from scratch and with only our vision. It was beautiful. The bridal party spent the week before the ceremony using the site as an artist’s retreat to build structures, hand-paint signs, build sets, and curate the space. Every single item was hand selected, fabricated, altered and curated with meaning and intention.”
