Skateboarding & Tattoo-Inspired Wedding in Barcelona

Marta and Eider wanted their wedding to be different to the traditional Spanish wedding. Married in Barcelona, this pair are wedding videographers by trade so they knew exactly what they did and did not want for their own big day. They wanted a day which expressed their happiness, and were inspired by tattoos and the passion they both share for skateboarding and longboarding.

“It was the best day of our lives, a lot of partying and good times,” they began. “The ceremony was incredible, our best friend Sonia is the best officiant ever! We cried, we laughed, everyone was so happy… it was very emotional.”

Snoopy & Peanuts Comic Themed Wedding

When the bride has a life long obsession with the Pennuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz, there was only one wedding theme Amy and Alexander considered! They handmade almost all the decor and had a lot of fun coming up with creative ways to incorporate their favourite characters.

“The uniqueness of our wedding came from combining tradition with outrageous artistic licence in the shape of our unusual (yet ubiquitous!) theme”, said the bride. “You don’t get too many weddings where the bride puts on her Snoopy apron and conducts a pub quiz during the intermission either!”

“Our decorations were handmade mostly using cartoons from our favourite Peanuts strips, with bunting templates from ASDA and lanterns from Talking Tables. We were keen to avoid excessively flamboyant floral displays and I wanted a minimal look rather than engaging a florist. There was a lot of running around at the last minute, but potting some lavender (thank you mother-in-law!) and sticking with gypsophila for my bouquet gave some colour without overshadowing the other decorations.”

1960s Working Man’s Club Meets a 1920s Speakeasy

The theme for Katie and Jimmy’s informal winter wedding was a mixture of a 1960s working man’s club with a 1920s speakeasy. They were married at Hackney Town Hall and hosted their reception at Earl Haig Hall, an old British Legion social club in Crouch End.

“We did it our way”, began the bride. “We met in the pub beforehand, we didn’t walk down the aisle and we had no music or readings at the ceremony. The ceremony was just for immediate family and close friends. There were just 20 of us there. At the reception there was no sit down dinner or table plan, we also had no posh cars and no bouquets. It was just informal and fun.”

The bride’s dress came from eBay and cost her £25! “It was purchased on a whim two weeks after getting engaged”, she said. “Wedding dress shopping wasn’t for me. I’m not very confident so found the whole process very stressful and I didn’t feel great in anything I tried. But I loved my eBay dress and was so pleased with it. I made my veil myself with materials that cost less than a fiver. I also bought some amazing leopard print shoes from Topshop.”

Modern & Minimal Wedding with Pops of Orange & a Jumpsuit Wearing Bride!

Célie and Jonathan’s French wedding is so damn stylish I don’t even know where to begin! The were hitched in Strasbourg at the city hall, followed by a reception at Le Villa Mathis.

“We were inspired by industrial style and the idea that we wanted to keep it simple”, began the bride. “I also loved looking at Pinterest and Solange Knowles’ wedding really inspired my outfit!”

The bride’s jumpsuit came from ASOS and she wore it with orange shoes to match their modern colour scheme. All the reception decor was homemade. “All the industrial details that we handmade by ourselves. The fact that I wore a jumpsuit was pretty unique. Also, we got dressed and prepared in front of each other and did everything together. It was also really special that we were able to have our son with us. We got married after eight years together and, above all, we wanted to celebrate our love story.”

Modern Community Art Wedding in Savannah

Artists Stephanie and Nick wanted a modern wedding that was influenced by their love of art and the community. The couple live in New York, but were marred in Savannah. They hired wedding planners Ivory & Beau to make sure the day went off without a hitch.

“Having wedding planners was a pretty crucial expense for us as we were planning a Savannah wedding from NYC and have really crazy schedules ourselves being freelance artists”, Stephanie began. “They helped keep us on schedule and roughly close to our budget ha! Plus they let us be creative and didn’t shoehorn us into a wedding style we didn’t want which can be difficult in the wedding industry where every vendor tries to push you into what THEY think you want.”

The day was held at Eden Village Church in Savannah, GA. They loved that it was a church, but not a traditional wedding venue. “The church building is actually in an old motor factory. I believe we were only the 3rd wedding to ever take place there. Also a good friend of ours built the wooden altar at the church, which was very special for us as well.”

The bride designed her own dress with help from her friend, Kourtney Wilson. She wanted to feel like herself and that meant nothing too girly. “I always knew I wanted to design my own dress but the possibilities were endless. As an androgynous girl wedding dresses have never felt like my style, so we decided to bring menswear elements into the dress. A high collar and my favourite part, suspenders in the back, all with a super form fitted bodice. If you’ve got it flaunt it, especially on your wedding day. I also made my own headpiece.”

Insanely Colourful & Macabre Fiesta Wedding

There are so many things to be obsessed with in Britani and Matt’s wedding. The bride’s black dress/ rainbow petticoat combo, the Dia de los Muertos masks, the mixed gender bridal parties, the colourful wedding cake and flowers and ALL THAT AMAZING DECOR. It’s enough to make even the most hardened of us well up and get really over excited all at the same time.

The Denver natives wanted a wedding that was colourful, fun and a little bit dark. “Our theme was ‘Rainbow Vintage Macabre Fiesta'”, explained the bride. “My dress started it all but also we both both really like macabre things, Halloween and skulls but I also absolutely adore vibrant colours”
