Witchy Late Summer New Moon Wedding

Amber and Daniel had a September wedding inspired by the New Moon. “We had a New Moon wedding”, Amber said. “Originally we couldn’t nail down a date. I am really into the New Moon and the beginnings it brings and I kept being drawn to 9/9/2018, which happened to be the New Moon into Virgo (Dan’s astrological sign). Once we chose it, Dan’s parents told us that was his grandmother and grandfather’s wedding date! It was meant to be!”

Most of the decor came from their own home and they used their creativity on the wedding invitations. The bride even sourced vintage mineral and crystal stamps for them. “The theme was a little dramatic and a little bit boho. I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted – slightly moody, but still carefree. For the invitations we used the limited edition eclipse stamps.

Relaxed & Spontaneous New York Elopement

Alys and Jason flew to New York for from the UK for their February wedding and were married at New York City Hall the day before Jason’s 30th birthday (he joked he got a wife for his birthday!) After the low key ceremony with just them and their photographer, they hopped in a cab to take photos around Brooklyn, grabbed some pizza and finished their day off with an amazing dinner at Bar Primi, an Italian Restaurant in the East Village.

“Our wedding was perfect for us as a couple”. Alys began, “relaxed yet spontaneous and fun. It was everything we wanted. I would not say we had a theme but I don’t think you need a theme when you are getting married in New York!”

Chintz, Pattern Clash & Maximalism Meets English Country Garden: Most Curious are Back for their Spring 2020 Wedding Shows!

Oh hellll yes, Most Curious is BACK! The wedding show for the style savvy couples and only the coolest kids is heading to London, Norwich, and for the first time ever, Manchester (!!) in February and March and I am SO HERE for this promotional shoot.

These images blew me away! They’re so very inspiring, so very unique and will give you a great preview of what’s in store at the shows. Harking back to the 70s and 90s with its chintz meets English country garden vibes, it somehow still feels bang up to date and modern. I would LOVE to see a real bride rocking this floral jumpsuit (literally made from curtain material!) down the aisle.

Show founder Becky, told me all about the inspiration for this one-of-a-kind wedding shoot which was put together using suppliers that will be taking part in the show. “Our themes include the mighty return of chintz, pattern clash and maximalism. We completely love the austere and minimalist vibes that have been part of recent trends and see them being around for a long time, but for us, looking forward, we feel a shift towards florals, stripes, pattern pattern and pattern, bows and frills. Think 70s and 90s Laura Ashley. So much so, we commissioned Velvet Johnstone to make this perfect, puff sleeve jumpsuit out of vintage curtain fabric!”

A Tuesday Morning Manchester City Centre Wedding

Becs and Megs’ simple wedding started with a ceremony at Manchester register office followed by a restaurant reception at No 1 Canal Street. Armed with a budget of £3500 they only included things they cared about, wore outfits from Karen Millen and kept the extra decorations minimal. The flowers were limited to their bouquets and the flowers in their hair.

“Our wedding theme was Manchester city centre, rainbow and glitter gay!” they said. “We just love each other and wanted to get married! That was all the inspiration we needed.”

They actually started by planning a secret wedding ten weeks before the date. They were going to just ask just two friends to be witnesses which is why they ended up getting married on a Tuesday at 11am! “The ideas then began to grow as we decided we couldn’t be married without our dearest present to celebrate”, they continued. “We were so humbled that people came from Switzerland, Scotland, Ireland, Devon, London, the lakes, the Midlands and Manchester to support us. Everyone had to take a day off work and make childcare arrangements, but none of this seemed to matter to them, we invited them and they were so happy to be invited. We loved marching them across Manchester form the registry office to Canal Street, carrying seven rainbow umbrellas just in case!”

Bright & Bold, Bohemian Backyard Wedding

Finding a lot of inspiration for their wedding on Pinterest but working closely with wedding stylist Kristal Childs to bring their ideas to life, Ashleigh and Jacob hosted their their bright and colourful meets boho wedding at the bride’s parent’s lakeside home. The backyard was dressed with an eclectic mix of seating surrounding the pool and they even had a help yourself drinks cart to welcomed guests to start celebrating as soon as they arrived.

“We really didn’t want anything traditional”, began the bride”, so we opted out of cake and had our favourite desserts instead. Our officiant and our band are both good friends of ours and the groom handpicked all the ceremony music. We wanted it to be as ‘us’ as possible.”

Their dream outdoor ceremony almost didn’t happen as it rained most of the afternoon. However having it later in the day meant the sky luckily cleared just in time! “As soon as the ceremony started the clouds parted and unplanned birds flew overhead. We forgot the rings, so we pretended to do that bit! I would say the ceremony was a little bit of a hot-mess, but it totally fit us. We laughed the entire time. It was beautiful to be surrounded by our loved ones.”

Tiny Vintage Inspired Elopement in Sweden

Moa and Ludvig always knew they wanted to elope, they also wanted the day to feel casual. The groom was originally going to just wear jeans (but decided at the last minute to dress up just a little bit!) and the bride bought her black dress from My Malina but accessorised it with shoes and jewellery she already owned.

She also made the cake, the groom and his mother arranged the flowers and they self-catered the vegan meal. All in they spent just £1500. They were married at Malmö City Hall in Sweden followed by a small dinner for their closest family members in the groom’s mother’s garden.
