Victorian Steampunk & Fancy Dress Fun
May 31, 2010
Caroline & Connor’s wedding had a distinctly Victorian/Steampunk vibe. As well as the bridal party, all the guests really got into the spirit and dressed up for the occasion in vintage dresses and attire which was practically all put together by the amazing Trish Roush at
House of Nines Design. Not only did she help out the guests with their outfits, but she dressed the bride and groom – including making those incredible hats (plus, I just have to add, how incredible is Connor’s moustache?!)
Pretty much everything about this wedding was unique and found at random vintage/thrift stores. The bride found her dress online (purchased from an independent seller not from a store I’m afraid) which was no mean feat as most genuine vintage dresses are teeny tiny! However with some clever corsetry Caroline looked every bit the Victorian princess.
Just wow huh!? Thanks so much to photographer Julio for sharing these today

DIY Wedding in Victoria Baths: Fiona & Jonny
February 19, 2013
Unique wedding venues can be hard to come across in the UK, but Fiona & Jonny weren't going to take that lying down. They knew they wanted a memorable space for their union and so selected Victoria Baths in Manchester. "Victoria Baths is an Edwardian swimming baths (which is no longer used as baths, now a restoration project and arts/community venue)", wrote Fiona. "It was originally three big pools. Two of them remain and are empty – we got married in the deep end of the biggest one and had our reception on top of the other! It was boarded over with a sprung dance floor in the fifties (my granddad used to teach ballroom dancing in that room). The remaining smaller pool and the rest of building, which is pretty vast, was left for people to wander around and explore."
New Orleans Masquerade Wedding: Leslie & Collin
May 22, 2013
I receive upwards of 50 submissions on a daily basis, and needless to say I do see a lot of very similarly styled weddings. So when a wedding like Leslie & Collin's lands in my inbox I'm over the moon, thrilled and super duper excited to feature it because it's just so different. I'm totally losing my cool over this theme and the way the couple executed it. They also planned and styled the entire wedding themselves, making it a million percent more awesome in my book.
A Homemade Festival Wedding: Anna & Jonny
July 6, 2012
"Although there were some traditional elements to our wedding, we wanted to keep the day as informal as possible," began newlywed Anna. "We wanted a traditional wedding ceremony, but for the reception we just wanted to create a space for our friends and family to enjoy themselves. We had music all day, put out games and a fancy dress box, and left a jar of moustaches on the bar. The fancy dress box was well-used and our wedding became the chaotic festival-party we always wanted!"
Neo-Victorian Steampunk Wedding: Jojo & Andy
September 19, 2014
Jojo and Andy were married in August at Nettlestead Place, Kent. While the groom wasn't too bothered about having a big wedding, the bride wanted something special and so a steampunk theme it was! She wore a corset from Baba Studio with an AMAZING purple and turquoise skirt, made for her by Sisters of the Moon on Etsy. Her biker boots were from eBay.
Wild West and Steampunk Wedding: Sadie & Kyle
November 13, 2013
I always have a bit of a soft spot for Steampunk weddings. Although they're not my personal style, I love how much effort the couples that plan them put in. The attention to detail is always incredible! Sadie and Kyle's wedding at Fiddle Lake Farm in Thompson, Pennsylvania was no different.

March 20, 2013
Bryce & Josie were hitched in October at As You Like It restaurant and bar in Newcastle. They budgeted £5000 for the wedding but ended up over-spending a little with the whole day coming in for a still very impressive £8000.
Reclaimed & Revisited DIY Wedding: Josh & Scott
February 5, 2013
Before I even saw these photographs I knew I wanted to blog this wedding. Wedding photographer, Adam Lowe, described the event to me as 'a mega super awesome gay punk dude wedding' and I instantly knew it would be amazing... and oh boy how right I was!
Josh & Scott were married in October at 400 West Rich, a 100,000 sq foot warehouse in Columbus, Ohio. They did pretty much everything themselves and spent just $3000 making their wedding perfect. "We met through a gay social networking and just got to talking", they began. "About three months later we were taking turns visiting each other and three months after that Josh moved to Columbus. Josh is a huge Disney fan and we planned a trip to Disney and Scotty ordered an engagement ring. He proposed to Josh in front of Cinderella's Castle."
DIY Countryside Wedding in Transylvania: Anda & Paul
February 9, 2014
Anda and Paul had a nature themed wedding in the Transylvanian countryside. They love all things rustic and are fanatical about DIY so it was the obvious theme for their big day. They were married at a church and afterwards they both jumped onto a home made chariot (a chair strapped to a board attached to the back of Paul's bicycle) to head to their outdoor reception.
