An Alice in Wonderland & Willy Wonka Themed Wedding: Aebbe and Sam
November 3, 2011
Aebbe & Sam wanted to go all out with their wedding theme and had it resemble a kind of Alice in Wonderland/Willy Wonka hybrid.
“Sam pretty much let me run with the theme,” Aebbe told me. “I love Alice in Wonderland and as my first wedding was very traditional and straight laced (not me at all) he really wanted it to be magical not just for me but him as well. We had a true fantasy day.”
“I think I managed to be really savvy with making decorations to save money,” the bride continued. “I don’t know what I would have done without my bridesmaid Vicky’s help.”
“We made salt dough hands and feet for the croquet hoops for eight hours solid! The best thing was buying two cheap Alice in Wonderland books and punching out rabbit shapes from them for table confetti. I also put the pictures from the books into chunky frames from the 99p shop and had them as part of the centerpieces.”
Thank you so much to Aebbe & Sam and their photographers Tim & Greg for sharing today.

A pink haired bride, a blue haired groom, neon custom Nike trainers and a wedding dress with a rainbow petticoat and a camera embellishment... Now what's not to love about this amazing wedding?!?

Childhood sweethearts Lisa and Damien met in school. They then attended the same 6th form, college and university! Being together so long, they really wanted their wedding to represent them as a couple.
Tattoos & Toadstools: Toni & Colin
December 7, 2012
Tattoos, tears and a seriously cute couple. Toni & Colin's wedding is what my dreams are made of. These guys are THE perfect Rock n Roll couple and they're wedding slays me. Plus they had Sassy of Assassynation as their wedding photographer so they instantly go way up in the cool stakes with me!
The wedding was held at The Quay, Musselburgh, on 10th November. "Colin and I met online what feels like a life time ago but wasn't all that long ago in the grand scheme of things", Toni began. "We spoke for a month or so online and then he made plans to come over from Northern Ireland to visit me in Edinburgh. 'I'll come for the weekend,' he said. Well, he arrived and he's yet to leave! We've lived together from day one and, including the night before the wedding, we are yet to spend one single night apart. It's a good job he makes me laugh as much as he does!"
A Pink & Leopard Print Themed DIY Wedding: Ele & Raph
July 23, 2012
As soon as I saw the sneak peek of Ele & Raph's wedding on their wedding photographer's facebook page, I knew I wanted to feature them... it's not really that difficult to see why is it? Could these guys be any more Rock n Roll if they tried?! The couple booked Rock n Roll Bride favourite Assassynation to capture their amazing day.
"What a great pleasure it was to have Sassy do the photography on our special day! I felt at ease as soon as I met her", began the bride. "Upon speaking to my (camera shy!) husband afterwards, he said exactly the same about Sassy, that she jumped at every opportunity to get that perfect shot and with simple instructions made him feel comfortable and contented. Ecstatic with the sneak peeks that Sassy had uploaded within less than 24 hours (wow!) onto her Facebook page, we both knew that Sassy is one Rock n Roll photographer and it would not have been the same without her!"
Crazy-Good Alice in Wonderland Wedding: Cat & Craig
January 9, 2014
Pink haired brides always have a special place in my heart (it's not difficult to see why!) and so when wedding photographer Chris Barber submitted Cat and Craig's October wedding I didn't hesitate to say yes! The wedding took place on Sunday 20th and was held at New Hall Hotel and Spa in Birmingham.
Budget Friendly Tattooed Tea Party Wedding at The Dome Cinema: Jess & Jordan
July 2, 2014
One of the questions people always ask me when we meet is, "don't you ever get bored of writing about weddings?" And I always say, with the utmost honestly, that if they saw all the amazing weddings I got to look at on a daily basis they, like me, would never get bored!
Fancy Dress Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Wedding: Rob & Laura
December 30, 2013
When Rob and Laura told me they had a fancy dress Alice in Wonderland/ Mad Hatter's tea Party wedding I thought "Wow that sounds cool, but I bet I've seen it all before..." Oh how wrong I was! Never in my life have I seen a wedding where everyone - the couple, the wedding party and the guests - threw themselves into it so much. These costumes are just off the hook awesome!
A DIY ‘Glamping’ Wedding & a Bride with Pink Hair: Josie & Nick
July 18, 2012
I ain't gonna lie... I harbor a certain level favoritism for pink haired brides... hum, I wonder why!? So when I saw Josie & Nick's camping themed wedding I was very excited indeed. The couple didn't spend a bomb on the day, utlising things they already owned (hello, look at Jodie's awesome Antaina boots!), by having the reception in Nick's parent's back garden and by making as much of it as they could themselves.
"We DIY’ed everything", Jodie told me. "It can be really easy to bite off more than you can chew though so my advice would be to decide on a cohesive theme early on. Select projects you know you can complete both skill wise and in the time you have. And start early! Anything you can do well in advance is great."
