Quay & Jory’s DIY, Maui Wedding
February 28, 2011
Quay & Jory were married under a giant tree, on the beach in Maui, Hawaii. “The wedding was very non traditional,” photographer
Molly Marie told me. “It was a gay wedding, almost everything was DIY, both girls love tattoos, and planned the entire wedding themselves. The wedding was not for anyone else but them, pure love. However they knew family wouldn’t be able to attend easily as they are from Eau Claire, WI, so photography was a very important part of the wedding to them.”
Thanks to Quay & Jory and their photographer Molly for sharing these beautiful images with us today

A Vintage Tea Party Wedding: Chloe & Emma
May 18, 2012
After a New Year's Eve proposal ("not at midnight, we're not that cheesy!") Chloe & Emma set to planning their tea party wedding for the end of March. Being two girls, they knew their wedding would stand out and they wanted that as well as to put their own stamp on their day. As Chloe explained "Obviously as two girls getting married our wedding was always going to be a bit different. People kept on asking which one of us was going to wear the suit but we were both determined to be complete princesses on the day. We knew we wanted a vintage tea party wedding and we looked at lots of different ways to achieve it as we had a tight budget. In the end my mum who found Jam and Tea, who provided the tea & cake catering, online (she is an expert Googler) and the rest of the wedding fell into place from there."
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."

October 24, 2015
Claire and Lou wanted a relaxed wedding that all their guests would enjoy. "The inspiration for our wedding came quite naturally", Lou told me. "All we wanted was to feel comfortable in our outfits and for our guests to feel comfortable too. We wanted people to socialise as much as possible and for everyone to have an amazing time with us. We wanted a nice flow on the running order and our priority was to ensure that no-one was hanging around waiting for the next part of the day feeling hungry or bored!"
Disco Jelly Car Wedding at Burning Man
January 16, 2017
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."

Shen and Eva's wedding was inspired by Shen's love of red hearts and how they've decorated their home. "After I purchased my dress (the red one), and as an extension of our home decor, we had lots of love hearts everywhere in the wedding", said Shen. "The day had a little bit of us all over it - from Marvel to Minions with some vintage cameras (as a nod to my work) and music thrown in. Everyone said to us how personal it all was with all the little touches,"
