Magda and David wanted a simple autumnal wedding with lots of warm colours. Their reception was held in a restaurant with gold chandeliers and they decorated the tables with ivy and leaves. “We wanted the wedding to feel like we were just at home”, the bride said. “Our dress code was ‘whatever makes you feel relaxed’ and we made almost everything ourselves.”

The day started with a quick ceremony at Gothenburg town hall. “The ceremony lasted for about 30 seconds and was very simple. There were a few words of  wisdom from the officiant about listening to and appreciating each other, the classic ‘Do you take each other?’ and so on before the kiss and it was over! Outside on the steps our families threw uncooked rice and confetti.”

“After the ceremony we went to a local pub called Holy Moly. We hadn’t reserved it, we just showed up, so you can imagine the looks we got walking in in our full wedding attire! However we wanted to pop by as it’s the place we were when we decided to finally set a date! We were already engaged but hadn’t done anything for the wedding. We were a little drunk and a friend asked us when we were going to get married. We both said ‘Soon I hope!’ and when we got home that night we booked the ceremony for a few weeks later!”

“We planned the wedding very quickly but I I loved how spontaneous it all was”, Magda concluded. “My favourite part of the wedding was after dinner, when it became a big party! We danced and had a great time. It felt really good to have everyone we love there with us.”

    Wow, the love between Jess and Jordan clearly shows through in every picture. Brought tears to my eyes. Flippin’ awesome! Congrats guys!

    Am I the only one who thinks that the Bride and Kat are very alike? I mean, look at their faces… in my opinion the girls are very simmilar!

  4. So damn cool! I also got married on Halloween (best date ever!), but I can only wish as was as effortlessly cool as these guys. 😛

  5. Fantastic! I love all the photos so much – and what a spectacular collection for them to remember their day.

  6. I LOVE this!! Probably beacause I’m also having a DIY tea party wedding 🙂 What an amazing location, I adore their venues, and the photographs are so full of love – they must have had an amazing day! xx

    Oh, this is lovely. It appeals to me on so many levels, especially the punk values – and the budget. We only spent around £1200, for our wedding – and the biggest spend for us, too, was the photographer.

    We got married in a Victorian cemetery – I wore a 2nd (3rd, 4th?) hand 1950s dress, and the priciest part of out outfits was my husband’s superb Harris tweed waistcoat.

  8. Love it! Lisa Jane was also our wedding photographer-so so pleased we found her, I love these photos and the tea party!
