Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week… but if not it’s definitely going to end on a high with the weddings I’ve got to share with you today. Starting with this cute-as-hell, wish-I-was-there, rocking-Aussie-party wedding!
Meg & Paul wedding was held at St Kilda Kingdom Hall of Jehovahs Witness and
City Tiler in Port Melbourne. The bride wore a dress which she designed herself and had made from laser cut silk. Her lace peep toe boots added yet more interest and her red jacket, which may have had the primary objective to keep her warm, looked totally ace with her ensemble. Gotta love a bride who bucks the usual bridal trends!
“We just wanted our wedding to be a relaxed party where our friends danced all night,” wrote Meg, “… and they did. If we had to have a theme, it would have simply been ‘a celebration’. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere, no sit down formal dinner, no bridesmaids or groomsmen, no drama, a party with no formalities, and that’s exactly what we got. Good people, good food, cool music. Our friends and family ate and drank and danced and smiled all night.”
Gorgeous! Thank you to Meg & Paul and their photographer Suellen Lee for sharing today.

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...
Vintage Nautical Wedding: Tenille & Christian
December 7, 2012
Tenille & Christian were married at Maritime Museum in Fremantle, West Australia. The venue totally set the tone for their vintage nautical themed wedding. "I found working with our theme to be quite easy", explained Tenille. "The colour scheme worked and it was easy to pinpoint and find things to match our theme. If you have Photoshop and some time to be creative then you can save loads of money doing things like menus and table names yourself. I also highly recommend a cocktail party wedding as guests get to mingle and no one is stuck at a table. It really livens up the atmosphere to have guests being able to stand, dance and have fun in general."
Retro Rockabilly Wedding in Australia: Shaun & Rikki
House of Lucie
September 9, 2014
There were two things that really captured my attention when I first saw Shaun and Rikki's wedding photos - her amazing pink hair and those incredible custom wedding shoes. They came from Kukla Fashion Designs on Etsy and I just knew instantly that you'd love them just as much as I do.
Rainbow DIY Wedding in a Vineyard: Brianna & Alex
November 28, 2012
Oh rainbow weddings, how I adore you. To me, there's nothing more exciting than getting a wedding just like Brianna & Alex's in my inbox on a drizzly November morning. Talk about brightening up my whole week!
The outdoor location is like a dream, and one that this gorgeous pair completely decorated themselves. They literally hand made everything - all the decor, the paper flowers and even the bride's and bridesmaid's dresses! Everything just works so well. The wedding was held at Canungra Valley Vineyards in Brisbane, Australia.
Quirky & Colourful New South Wales Wedding: Melodie & Kurt
February 20, 2013
The colourful wedding of Melodie & Kurt was held at Hopewood Country House in Bowral, New South Wales. The bride designed her own wedding dress and glittered up her own shoes but the DIY didn't stop there - friends and family of the couple got stuck in wherever possible!
1950s Inspired Melbourne Bowls Club Wedding: Jakob & Zoey
March 4, 2014
Jakob and Zoey were married in Melbourne in November. Their reception was at Thornbury Bowls Club. The whole day was a really casual affair. The bride and her bridesmaids all wore vintage dresses and the whole day had a 1950s vibe. They were even married by Elvis!
Colourful Melbourne Wedding: Alison & Jeremy
I Got You Babe
February 6, 2014
Alison and Jeremy's wedding took place in Melbourne, They had a non-denominational ceremony in a church and their reception was held at Shebeen, a super cool bar on Manchester Lane. Their day was super colourful and nearly all the décor was DIYed by the couple themselves. "We didn't really have a conscious theme," explained the bride. "We just put together a wedding that represented us. Throughout the planning process we questioned a lot of the usual traditions and culled elements of a traditional wedding that didn't have meaning for us."
Feline Themed Sydney Wedding: Liza & Dean
May 23, 2014
I joked on Facebook recently that the way to get blogged on Rock n Roll Bride is clearly to have a cat theme to your wedding, because this is the forth one I've featured in so many weeks (the others are here, here and here)! I stand by my convictions though, cat weddings are awesome. End of discussion.
