Whimsical, Fairy-like & Magical New York Elopement

Jen and Chris eloped on October 31 in New York City. The day was filled with cute personalised touches with an almost whimsical and almost fairy-like aesthetic. However the most important thing to them both having their ceremony in their own way. “Our ceremony was simple and we did not want to have any guests”, Jen began. “We said our vows to each other and promised that we would be together forever. That is how we wanted to get married and we are so happy we did it this way. There was no stress to impress others.”

Jen’s own personal style was the main inspiration for the day and this was reflected in her vintage dresses, flower crown and jewellery and even their ring tattoos that they got done end of the day. “We didn’t strive to make our wedding stand out or be different”, Jen continued. “We just wanted it to be special and fully ours. Our biggest worry beforehand was what the weather would be like! Leading up to the wedding day all of our weather apps were saying it would rain 100%. On the morning of the wedding there was some rain, but once we were ready to go out and get married the rain stopped!”

Red, White & Blue DIY Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf

Trinity Buoy Wharf has one of the best views in London which suited Rebecca and Dave’s red, white and blue themed wedding to a tee. The couple didn’t want the day to be too ‘matchy-matchy’, but they did was cohesive elements to run throughout. The bride wore a stunning red Pronovias dress (from their evening gown range, so less than a quarter of the price of their wedding gowns!), the bridesmaid wore white and Dave and his groomsmen were in blue suits.

Dave designed all the stationery based on the concept of a tube map of their lives (as a timeline), with a line for each of them. The lines came together when they met and formed a single line (their relationship), culminating in the them getting married. Rebecca’s mum made the bouquets and buttonholes using yellow, red and purple flowers with green foliage and she made the cake!

A Lana Del Rey Inspired Tenerife Vow Renewal

When a wedding photographer decides to renew her vows, you KNOW the photos are going to be totally spectacular. Emma of Epic Love Story renewed her vows with husband Neil, and flew to Mount Teide, a volcano on Tenerife, which holds a special place in their hearts and relationship, to do so. They went on a group holiday together to Tenerife 10 years ago, which is where they both realised they wanted to be a bit more than friends!

They wanted to keep things low key and casual and to leave plenty of time for their pictures with The Mchendrys. Emma wore a black maxi dress which she bought for £20 online! Neil wore an All Saints leather jacket and a denim one from ASOS which Emma painted herself with a verse from a Lana Del Rey song.

A Winter Wedding Inspired by their Heritage with Just Six Guests

It may feel at odds to be sharing a winter wedding in June, but we couldn’t resist the beautiful yet simple details of Brooke and Matt’s November celebration. if you’ve pushed your wedding back to the winter, or you’re now planning to have a much smaller day, you will LOVE this.

Even before they were engaged, Brooke knew that when she got married she’d never have a big white wedding. “I’m a long time fan of Rock n Roll Bride and I think it was very much down to you that my partner and I had the confidence to make our wedding in a way that truly reflected us”, she wrote (also awww we love this!).

They decided to travel to Yorkshire from where they live in Adelaide , Australia, to have their intimate ceremony at Gibson Mill Hardcastle Crags, a National Trust properly in West Yorkshire. They had just six guests there with them. Afterwards, they returned home and had a bigger reception in Adelaide with 125 of their loved ones.

“We feel like travelling overseas was a pretty big move away from the traditional wedding format”, she said. “We certainly heard that as feedback by many friends and family but it was more than going overseas, everything we did had a reason, a family, cultural or historical tie. When we returned home and showed our stunning wedding video everyone said to us that they understood why we did it that way.”

Dreamy and Glamorous Boho Wedding

Megan and Mike wanted a glamorous boho theme, with a feeling of dreamy freedom and elements of a fairytale. They hired wedding planner AMV Weddings to help them bring together their theme and vision and also coordinate on the day.

Their favourite part of the day was their outdoor ceremony. Their florist, Desiree Dean Designs, made them a beautiful arch to get married under and the aisle was strewn with white rose petals. Flowers were one of their biggest expenses but they wanted both the ceremony and reception spaces to feel very lush and green.

“I remember standing at the start of the aisle, staring at Mike, and saying to my dad ‘is this seriously real life right now?'”, Megan said. “I felt like I was in a dream. Everyone we loved was at the same place and watching me marry the man I love. it was an insane feeling. We shared vows that made our ceremony super personal. I cried and we laughed, It couldn’t have been more perfect.”

Lilac and Avi truly embraced their inner geek for the November wedding in Israel. Hosted on November 24th (Evolution day and also exactly a year to the day after they got engaged), they chose to include as many of their famdoms as they possibly could in their wedding. 100 cool point to anyone who can spot them all!

Both designers, they wanted the day to play homage to the bride’s love of sci-fi and the groom’s love of fantasy. “We both like either side of the geeky coin”, Lilac explained, “Avi is a fantasy fan, I’m a sci-fi nerd, and we both like science, space and exploration. So, we took all of these small parts of our whole geeky world (TV shows, movies, cartoons, games, books…) and spread them around the wedding in our outfits, in the decorations and our invitations.”
