With almost zero budget but a theme they knew through and through Gina & Fredrik had a pirate themed wedding in Sweden. They were married at the Port of Sundsvall (where else?!)
and had their reception at their own home. The couple made their own clothes and apart from their wedding photographer David Schreiner, had no other vendors helping them out.
“We walked everywhere and had our guests playing music as our entertainment”, explained the bride. “My daughters did my hair and make up and we made our own outfits. The wedding was very casual and relaxed. Only our best friends and closest relatives where invited. The wedding was held in the harbour, which was rather unconventional. All our guests got in with the theme and they all dressed up. We had bottles of rum which where labelled with our last names.”
So fun! Thank you to Gina & Fredrik for sharing with us today.

When logistically it just wasn't possible for Ann & Martin to marry on Halloween as they'd originally planned, they still knew they wanted their wedding to have a spooky gothic theme. The whole day was heavily influenced by Tim Burton.
Autumnal Lakeside Wedding in Sweden: Erica & Philip
She Takes Pictures He Makes Films
February 6, 2014
Erica and Philip were married in Sweden in October. Philip proposed on their seven year anniversary, and wanting an Autumn wedding but not wanting to wait over a year, they planned their wedding in just four months!
The reception was held in a beautiful orangery owned by one of the bride's friends. It is located right by one of the Sweden's biggest lakes and was an incredible backdrop. Because it is a privately owned, the venue rarely hosts parties so the couple had a lot of work to do to make it look amazing... but they certainly pulled it off! Having such a blank canvas meant they were really able to put their own stamp on their day.

While watching Pirates of the Caribbean one evening, Jade turned to her fiancé Dave and commented about just how fun it would be to have a pirate themed wedding. To her surprise, Dave agreed immediately, and so their wedding theme was decided!
Swedish Steampunk Wedding: Adam & Amanda
October 10, 2013
Adam and Amanda love steampunk and so the theme for their wedding was an obvious choice. They wanted to get their guests into the spirit of their wedding so they asked them to dress in costumes too... and they all did! Amanda's dress was from Viola Lahger which she wore with a little hat by Linekka and Adam's outfit was pieced together from items found at flea markets.
Pirate Wedding in Toronto: Jackie & Y’Ves
March 18, 2014
Jackie always knew she wanted a pirate themed wedding, even before she met Y'ves. So when it came to this couple saying "I do" there really was only one way they were going to do it! The wedding was held on The Kajama Tall Ship, docked at The Harbourfront Centre on Queens Quay West in Toronto. They had their ceremony on the deck at 12.30, they set sail at 1 'o clock and everyone de-boarded at 5.30.
An Industrial Warehouse Wedding in Sweden: Kari & Torkel
September 14, 2012
A warehouse might just be one of my all time favourite wedding venue ideas. Maybe it's a throwback from my teenage rave phase or maybe it's the fact that it's so raw and grimy - a fabulous antithesis to the over-saturation of pretty-pretty wedding fluff that I'm subjected to by working in this crazy little industry. But either way I flippin' LOVE Kari & Torkel's wedding. They had their legal ceremony 9 month's earlier but wanted a big party in August to celebrate with their friends & family.
"We both have demanding work and work long hours as well as travelling extensively," began the bride. "We met through internet dating, both sharing a strong interest for physical outdoor training like running, cycling and canoeing. Since we had cheated everyone by having a small 5-minute ceremony the November before, my parent's decided to reenact this part of the day with my father taking the role of the officiator. We used flower wreaths as a symbol instead of exchanging rings."
