“Cozy, relaxed and colourful” were the very words Akvile & Andrius used to describe their beautiful wedding to me. “We had a very clear vision,” they added. “We wanted the wedding to be very simple, informal, and relaxed. We wanted to focus on the most important thing – us and our love rather than expensive and shiny wedding details.”
“There was absolutely no stress when planning the wedding, we took it very easy, we put a lot of our hearts into every detail – invites, guest gifts, guest accessories, decorations, etc. We chose a pretty small town, small church and not too popular (yet) venue for the wedding, asked guests to wear something that they feel very comfortable (rather than fancy!) in. All these small details helped us achieve our big goal.”
The ceremony was held at
St. Apostles Peter and Paul Church in Moletai, Lithuania and the reception was at the intimate Giluzis Homestead.
The couple chose not to have any bridesmaids or ushers, favouring to let all their friends simply enjoy the day, “There were so many good friends and relatives at the wedding that we did not want to exclude any of them by asking to be their bridesmaids or groomsmen. All girls received handmade accessories – colorful flower wrist bands made by Akvile. All boys received blue handmade bow ties from the Andrius.”
Thank you to Akvile & Andrius, their photographer Saules Pieva and their coordinator Laura Vagone for sharing this stunning wedding with us today.

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).

Historic Cemetery Wedding with the Bride Arriving in a Coffin: Kristen & Jo
March 26, 2013
It feels weird to start a real wedding post with a disclaimer of sorts but this is just one of those weddings that I share with a small sense of trepidation. Without wanting to sound like anybody's mother, let's just remember that this is two people's actual wedding day and their way of expressing their love. I am under no disillusion that parts of the wedding may well divide opinion, but as always, let's keep the comments constructive and remember what Rock n Roll Bride is all about...
The ‘Maritime Goth’ Themed Wedding of Jessica & Winston McCall
September 29, 2014
When wedding photographer Matt Miller emailed me to tell me he'd shot the wedding of Winston McCall, lead singer of Australian metalcore band Parkway Drive, and asking if I'd like to feature it, I nearly fell off my chair. "Er... stupid question!" I replied, "OF COURSE!" He married his high school sweetheart, Jessica, in beautiful Byron Bay on May 11th this year.
Emotional DIY Kawaii Wedding: Talia & Zac
March 18, 2013
Isn't it funny when two of your worlds collide? I've been stalking following Talia on Instagram for ages (I love love love her cute kawaii style!) and so when I received their wedding photographs from Eric Roland I literally jumped up and down with glee! I knew this wedding was going to be awesome from the few sneaks I'd seen on her feed but I was little prepared for this level of amazement...
