Who could resist a beautiful pink haired bride? Not this blogger! Aimee and Alex were married at Curradine Barns in Worcestershire. Their wedding was relaxed, enjoyable and full of handmade details. Aimee wore a gorgeous Honeypie Boutique dress with a rainbow petticoat which she made herself with help from her aunt.

“Rock n Roll Bride was a massive help when planning our wedding”, Aimee began. “I had only been to two weddings before and they were both very traditional, so it really gave us an idea of how to reflect both our personalities on the day. I studied set design at university so it was really important to me to have a venue that I could dress up and Curradine Barns fitted perfectly. We both love the countryside so we went for beautiful wild flowers and bunting, Alex’s outfit tied the theme in with shot gun brass accessories and brown boots. Whereas my outfit had a more alternative look with a handmade retro petticoat and vintage hair and make up.”

“We saved money on pretty much everything!” she continued. “The only things we splashed on were the venue and the band as these were both super important to us, but nearly everything else was handmade. My outfit was pretty inexpensive and the bridesmaid outfits were bought on eBay. I tried to do as much as possible myself by collecting bottles for the tables and making bunting and table places, Alex made a fabulous cork board to welcome our guest too! Family and friends helped out enormously from the flowers on the name places to my garter and petticoat.”
