A Party Hard, Rock n Roll Tel Aviv Celebration with a Red & Black Dress Code

If you’ve picked up a copy of my book, then you may recognise Dafna and Eylon as their Las Vegas elopement is one of the real weddings featured inside. I LOVED those images and their story so much! Although they always wanted to get married in Vegas, they also wanted to celebrate with their loved ones back home in Tel Aviv, so it was the perfect excuse to have for a second wedding. The day was held at Bascula, a cultural arts centre that is home to a circus.

High-Fashion Anti-Wedding with Rock n Roll Spirit

George and Antoinette met when they both moved to Milan to study fashion, meeting through a mutual friend that also attended the school. “We have actually been together for 12 years,” said Antoinette, “but because we both have a very rebellious spirit we didn’t want to give in to all the social and family pressure to actually get married, it wasn’t a priority for either of us. When we finally decided to do it, we wanted it to be more of a celebration of the past 12 years and as well as starting a new future together.”

Viking Meets Rockabilly London Wedding

Dave and Jana are not massively into the concept of marriage, in fact Jana had said all her life that she would never get married! Fast forward to 2018 though, and after meeting Dave on Instagram and bonding over their love of cooking and tattoos, the couple knew they would stay together for the rest of their lives and found themselves wanting to express it somehow.

They knew they never wanted a huge ‘white’ wedding, and set a date shortly after getting engaged for a Friday in September, as it’s the day that the Vikings would’ve traditionally married on. They also decided that their day should be an equal mix of both the bride and the grooms interests, so their viking rockabilly wedding theme was born!

Secluded Central Park Elopement

When planning their wedding day, Zach and Robyn knew that they wanted to create an experience with reflected their relationship. They actively elected conventional elements very judiciously, “We chose things not just for ceremony, or convention, but because it was what we wanted or felt reflected our relationship,” Robyn explained.

They decided to have a private ceremony in a secluded part of Central Park, New York, in the north woods. “It rained all day,” said Robyn, “and the sun came out about an hour before we were supposed to arrive. So, not only did we get to enjoy the ceremony as planned, the park was empty. The experience was really special and joyful.”

Atlas Mountains Destination Wedding with a ‘White Party’ BBQ Reception

Ashleigh and Daniel decided to fly themselves and all their loved ones over to Morocco for their October wedding. They opted for the Atlas Mountains and had one hell of a cerebration at L’Amandier Hotel in the Ouirfane Valley, just south of Marrakech. The day after the main event, they hosted a casual BBQ for everyone and the theme was ‘all white’ with everyone dressed head-to-toe in white. They were legally married back when they got back to the UK a week later.

“My husband Daniel and I had zero experience planning weddings when we started our epic journey”, began the bride. “The only reason we even embarked on planning a destination wedding by ourselves is because we were dissatisfied with the way that every venue we approached kept forcing us to choose from a set-menu of pre-packaged options (from flowers to food) that made it impossible to craft our dream day. We were working with a budget below the national average, so getting a wedding planner was never going to be realistic for us, but we still wanted a personalised experience that we could never forget!”

90s Nostalgia Inspired Wedding with Retro Toys and Feminist Touches

Nick and Inés didn’t really have inspiration for how they wanted their wedding day to look and feel: “To be honest,” said Inés, “we just threw together a bunch of stuff that we loved and hoped for the best!” They ended up with a day filled with childhood nostalgia – from the retro toy decorations collected from scouring eBay, charity shops and their parents attics, to the childhood photos of themselves that adorned every table at their reception.
