Indoor Rock Festival Wedding

Indoor Rock Festival Wedding (8)

Lucy and Jack wanted their wedding to have a music festival vibe, but indoors. They hired Old Thornes Hotel in Liphook and were married in August. “We called our wedding WedRock” said the bride. “It was a celebration of us, our love of rock and metal music, and just having a good time with our family and friends. Music was a huge inspiration. Jack and I have been to so many gigs and festivals together, we’ve literally lived our lives to music. It was important to us that it featured all of the songs we love that hold memories of some very special times we’ve spent together.”

“For the tables, we wanted them to have a festival field look to them, so we had a piece of astroturf in the centre, scattered with daisies, and wellies filled with flowers sitting on a tree stump on top. We also had our friend Daniel Hewer paint the table names which were festival logos. We decided not to have a colour scheme; we just wanted everything as bright as possible. It made things so much easier; we didn’t have to think about what went with what, if it was bright and it rocked, we went with it.”

Green and Leafy Yet Urban Wedding

Green Dress Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf - Matt Parry Photography (45)

Libby and Matt were married at The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The inspiration for the wedding was the bride’s emerald engagement ring, which was originally Matt’s grandmothers. The also bride wore a bespoke green silk dress by Wendy Benstead.

“We had already been considering green for our main colour, but then we finally moved house and got our first garden, and decided to expand on that and make gardens the theme” the bride said. “We ended up with a gift list at a garden centre, hired trees to decorate the venue, and wild, ivy-type flowers for the bouquets and tables, as well as a garden arch covered in flowers which we got married under.”

“The most unqiue parts of our wedding were probably more the things we didn’t do” she continued. “We didn’t do favours, we didn’t have a first dance, we didn’t have a traditional wedding cake, I haven’t taken Matt’s name, I don’t wear a wedding ring (just my engagement ring) and obviously I didn’t wear white! We decided not to do anything just because it was traditional, although we weren’t against carrying on the traditions which we liked. For instance, throwing confetti seemed to really fit with the theme of the wedding, and I bought some beautiful green and white petals from The Real Flower Confetti Company.”

Wedding Inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (11)

Sarah and Sebastian were inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for their April wedding. They wanted to have the trip of a lifetime, Cadillac convertible and all. They invited a big group of friends and family to fly out to celebrate with them.

“Being from Vienna, getting married in Vegas was pretty unique and a huge novelty” the bride began. “We thought it was really special that all our friends and family were coming the long way from Austria, England, Mexico and all over the USA too. Getting married with all our family and friends there was the best thing we could experience.”

The couple flew to Los Angeles and then drove themselves to Sin City. “Along with our photographer, we drove from from Los Angeles to Vegas in a 1970 Chevy Impala. We stopped along the way to shoot some of our wedding pictures in the desert. It was a big party on the highway because people kept seeing us driving in our wedding clothes. They started honking, waving and taking pictures. It was such a great experience and so much fun!”

Disco Jelly Car Wedding at Burning Man

Disco Jelly Car Wedding at Burning Man (30)

Bunny and Sarah were married at Burning Man Festival. Their theme was based on their Disco Jelly Art Car that they made for their camp. “Getting married at Burning Man was very unusual!” said Bunny. “The environment and elements, such as heat, wind and dust (sometimes all at the same time!), made the wedding very different and challenging. During the ceremony a dust storm came, but we didn’t thinking about pausing for a second. It made our moments very raw and unforgettable.”

The couple were married in front of a giant spinning heart, “For our ceremony location we chose an art piece in the shape of a spinning heart made by Eric Zann” explained Sarah. “The ceremony itself was very relaxed and our friends made it even better than we ever imagined. One of our friends was our officiant, another friend played the guitar, and another one recited his speech in German, even though no one understood German!”
