Kristina and Florian were married in a tent on the beach in northern Germany. After their small ceremony, they danced, played and got messy on the beach with all their guests… Oh and everyone was in animal fancy dress!
“Our wedding was crazy and out of the box”, said the bride. “Our daughter loves animals and it was her idea to have everyone dressed up! The Germans tend to be very conservative, especially in the northern part of the country where we are, so it was very hard to get our dream wedding – we had to fight for it!”
“I also trashed my dress on the wedding day!” she explained. “I got into the sea and ended up going for a swim in it. I didn’t care about how it looked afterwards. We are a crazy couple that loves to be different. Our humour is black and sarcastic so it was great to have an unusual wedding!”

Retro Bowling Club Wedding with an Ocean View: Nat & Sam
November 30, 2012
The retro wedding of Nat & Sam is perfect... literally perfect. I just know you're going to go nuts for Nat's nostalgic bridal style, their ocean view ceremony and the reception that looks like it stepped right out of the past.
"Our ceremony was at Burrows Park Headland, Sydney", explained Nat. "The ceremony spot was a beautiful cliff edge looking over the Pacific Ocean and located right next to the Bowling Club where we had the reception. We loved that the only way to get to it was via a very long, natural aisle sheltered on one side by trees, which we decorated with Chinese lanterns. For our reception we chose Clovelly Bowling Club. It was cheap as chips to hire, the drinks prices stuck in the 1980s, and the tacky bright blue carpet and a strange old picture of the Queen flanked by two Aussie flags above a stage which houses an ancient piano (which we tuned up and used!) were AWESOME! As soon as we walked in we looked at each other and said 'Yes!'. Oh, and it had 180 degree ocean views!"

"We didn't have much money to spend (our budget was £3000) so we wanted to do as much ourselves as we could. I think in the end we had a laid back, homemade vintage feel to the day."

October 31, 2013
Megan and Tom had a chilled out, backyard BBQ wedding held at a friend's house. "We wanted the whole experience to be a representation of ourselves and our relationship", Megan wrote. "While we wanted everything to look beautiful, we didn't want it to be perfect or overdone. I went shopping in thrift stores for all kinds of mismatched vases that would compliment each other. At the end of the night. guests were allowed to take all of the assortments home with them."
