Petra and Marijan wanted their wedding to be simple, with a vintage theme, and to be out in nature. They also organised and made everything for the wedding themselves.
“I was building ideas and getting inspiration from Pinterest for a year before the wedding,” began Petra. “However, once we started actually planning the wedding properly it all happened so fast with no delays; we made and organised everything in just two months!”
Their budget was €7000 and the couple did a lot of DIY projects for their wedding. “We made everything by ourselves and we also decorated everything the day before the wedding, which included the entire reception venue and outside where the ceremony took part. The whole of our wedding day was awesome so our entire wedding was our favourite part!”
The couple were married in the Church of Saint Lenart in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Afterwards they had an outdoor blessing at the reception, which was held in a secret meadow nearby. “The worst thing about planning our wedding was searching for our venue. At first we wanted a location which was a little bit further away and more out in the nature, but in the end the location turned out to be just perfect. There was a lot of adjusting and adapting to different situations as they came up. However, in retrospect, there was nothing we would have done differently. We would do everything again just the way it was.”

Tim and Scarlett were married on 8th August, their five year anniversary. They had a church ceremony followed by a tea party reception in the gardens of Baxby Manor, a gorgeous 705 year old Manor house. "We knew that we wanted somewhere beautiful, and Baxby ticked all the boxes", Scarlett began. "It even came with a glamping site down the lane for all our guests to stay over! Baxby isn't a wedding venue, just a luxury holiday letting, but the owners were amazing and let us create a beautiful day there, as if it were our own house."

A Maryland Farm Wedding: Jamie & McKenzie
July 6, 2012
Too gorgeous for words...like literally. I just stared and stared at these amazing photos for (what seemed like) hours before I found the words to start writing this article. There really is something utterly breathtaking about this wedding and Lydia Jane's images that captured it. I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you today so please forgive my gushing...
Jamie & McKenzie were married at home. They love their lifestyle on their farm, living alongside the sheep and chickens, so a homespun wedding was really the only option. The couple have a hugely supportive family who all helped out to make the wedding what it was.
Colourful Norwegian Wedding with a Bride in a Moomin Valley Wedding Dress: Ina & Åsmund

A DIY Wedding in Downtown Santa Ana: Candice & Nathaniel
October 17, 2012
One of the things that bums be out about living in the UK is that we can't get married anywhere we like - of course many couples these days opt for a humanist ceremony at the spot of their choice with the 'legal bit' taking place a few days before or after, but it's not really the same. And when I see ceremonies as gorgeous as Candice & Nathaniel right in the heart of Downtown Santa Ana, I'm even more envious!
The wedding took place on June 3rd. The couple organised everything themselves and did so for less than $5000. The ceremony was held on 2nd Street Promenade, and the reception was at Memphis at the Santora, just round the corner. The couple met online and had their first date in the area, and Nathaniel proposed on New Years Eve at Memphis at the Santora,. Basically it was the obvious location for them to have their wedding too!

A Backyard Beach Wedding Planned in Three Weeks: Nellie & Matt
September 13, 2012
Nellie & Matt planned their Whistable wedding in just three short weeks. They wanted something small, something personal and something relaxed. They found the amazing Beacon House, right on the beach, for their ceremony and were able to use the back garden of the bride's brother's holiday cottage for the reception.
"Serendipity and our amazingly supportive family and friends brought our wedding together in just 3 weeks," the bride began. "Matt and I had been engaged for 3 years, neither of us are planners but we had a clear idea of the kind of wedding we wanted, a relaxed, seaside celebration centred around our close friends, family, good food and drink. But every option we explored in Cambridge and Brighton, our two home cities, in one way or another tied us into expensive packages, so we put off the wedding and skipped to the baby."
