Oh how I do love an extravaganza..especially one as amazing as this one! Fae describes her wedding below:
The deal goes down at Walt Disney World, with 18th century inspired attire (blue dress!), and a tea party reception. Hand-fasting and vows from Broadway shows. Versailles meets Wonderland. Croquet. A masquerade dessert party. DIY-ing pretty much everything I can.
Yeah, it’s corny and over the top, but we’re corny, over the top people. There will be none of this half-assed princessery here. My whole ass will be princessy.
I NEVER planned to have much of a wedding, but after frustration with other venues, and a bout of the “let’s just go to the courthouse”, I gave in to WDW. I originally mentioned it just as passing fancy, it was Eric who thought we should go for it. …when he saw you could arrive in Cinderella’s Coach. Yeah, we’re both pretty much 8-yr old girls on the inside.
And I’ll probably catch hell from someone about this, but it’s our favorite damn place to be, lame as that is. So if you can get married in your favorite place, why not?
Fae is a doll clothing designer for Blythe and made a doll in one of her dresses too (cute!) whilst I love this dress, for me it’s all about that blue Cinderella dress – proper fairytale! Love it love it love it! A huge thanks to Fae for sharing the joy!

Love and Lavender
November 26, 2015
Lauren and Mike spent just £2500 on their gorgeous wedding. They were inspired by two things - the movies and lavender. "We had lots of references to the movies", the bride said. "We are both massive film geeks and we couldn't not have that represented on our big day. We had little hints scattered all over the place, including our Star Wars photo booth, movie quotes and movie poster illustrations around the venue, marvel confetti cones, and Mendl's boxes for wedding favours from The Grand Budapest Hotel."
Retro & Disney Inspired Wedding on Southend Pier
May 31, 2017
Charlotte and Jack's wedding had a really unique location - Southend Pier! The day had a retro theme with Disney references throughout. "Our wedding theme was 'Grease meets the Great British Seaside!'", said the bride. "We were inspired by lots of wedding blogs, especially Rock n Roll Bride! We saw so many couples who had a day that reflected them and that's what inspired us to plan a wedding that people would describe as completely us. Also, we saw so many weddings that looked like they and the guests were having a total blast, so we wanted to have a day full of fun!"

Glamorous, Budget-Savvy and Bohemian Wedding in South Africa: Jean & Brett
June 9, 2014
I was convinced this wedding was a styled shoot with models. Convinced. These kinds of beautiful people don't exist in real life do they?!
Well, apparently they do, and I've got the photographs to prove it. Stand by for some serious wedding envy my friends - That light! That dress! Those model-esque bridesmaids!
Powerful Mt Warning Wedding, 100 Bridesmaids & Flower Crowns for all: Polly & Jamie
June 10, 2013
People often ask me if I ever get bored of blogging about weddings. I can see why because usually once you've been doing something - anything - for as long as I have been doing this, it's natural to think that you might start to become a little 'over' it. So while I'm not going to pretend that I'm always thrilled, overjoyed and amazed by every wedding that graces my inbox, I can safely say that I am probably as far from 'over' this job as I could be... especially when I get sent images like Polly and Jamie's wedding to drool over.
A Rain-Soaked Wedding Festival: Helen & James
Neil Thomas Douglas
September 30, 2013
Rain on your wedding day is a big worry for a lot of couples, but today I'm here to prove to you that it can actually be pretty amazing! Yes, Helen and James' outdoor festival wedding was a wash-out, but they definitely didn't let it ruin their day. Check out the amazing photographs their photographer Neil Thomas Douglas was able to capture... of course shots like this requires a couple who aren't afraid to get a little wet and muddy, but these guys went all out! They even went out in a boat on the river during the downpour!
Atmospheric Lake District Wedding: Helen & Andy
June 12, 2013
I was rather over-excited when I laid eyes on Helen and Andy's Lake District wedding, shot by the amazing Neil Douglas Photography. I mean what could be more incredible than getting wedding day portraits like these in a setting like that!? Hats off to the photographer of course, but also to the awesome couple for not being afraid to potentially get a little wet or muddy. I'd love to see more brave couples like this please, who's with me?
The wedding was held in Buttermere, with the ceremony in a local church and the reception in a tipi in Buttermere field. The couple didn't have a huge budget and opted to DIY and thrift a lot. Helen wore a dress which she bought off eBay for £100 and customised with her grandmother's vintage fur (a last minute edition due to the weather).
