Great Gatsby & Art Deco Inspired Pub Wedding

Great Gatsby & Art Deco Inspired Pub Wedding (35)

Brooke and Reece first met in high school and were married in Australia in September. The main inspiration for the wedding was their venue; The Provincial Hotel in Fitzroy. It had the laid back feel they were after and had lots of rustic charm. Their theme was mash up of rustic, handmade details and the Great Gatsby. They decided to not have a first dance, cut the cake or throw the bouquet as they didn’t want a scheduled wedding with time frames and things to remember, they just wanted to party!

“We have a love for the art deco era but didn’t want to fully base the wedding on a theme so we chose certain aspects to be art deco inspired and the rest rustic and laid back,” explained Brooke. “We really wanted a venue that was in Fitzroy as that area means a lot to us. We were so happy to find out that The Provincial Hotel does weddings as we frequent there often and we wanted the venue to show a little something about us.”

Super Colourful Dinosaur and Superhero Wedding

Super Colourful Dinasour and Superhero Wedding (38)

Aimee and David had a fun, colourful and playful wedding in October. They wanted their day to be as fun as possible for their guests, and to reflect their personalities. “We did what we wanted and didn’t feel pressured to do things because it’s deemed ‘traditional'”, explained Aimee. “I didn’t want bridesmaids. I have loads of amazing friends but I just didn’t feel the need, and I didn’t want their partners to feel left alone and awkward on the day, plus it saved money. I don’t regret my decision at all.”

Although it rained on their day, the bride was happy about it! “We were secretly pleased it rained on the morning of our wedding as we really wanted an indoor ceremony but the venue were encouraging it to be outside (weather permitting of course). The gardens at Little Hermitage are stunning but equally the interior is so beautiful and we really preferred the idea of being inside as it felt cosier for our 50 guests, plus I didn’t want my hair to get windswept. So the rain meant we got our own way!”

“Neither of us had any interest in the conventions and constraints of a traditional wedding. We just wanted to be ourselves, have a short meaningful ceremony and a big party afterwards with lots of friends”, said the bride. “Our ceremony was very intimate, with only a handful of family and friends present, and was conducted by our dear friend Bryan.”

Gothic Wedding at the Morbid Anatomy Museum

Gothic Wedding at the Morbid Anatomy Museum (31)

Kim and Maik wanted their wedding to be non-traditional and were inspired by Rock n Roll and all things morbid. They described their wedding theme as ‘goth’, with a focus on the colour black. They hosted the day at a really unique venue – the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn!

“I’m super into all things morbid, so lots of black was a must,” explained Kim. “Maik isn’t as into that stuff as I am but being the sweetheart that he is he pretty much went with everything I suggested. We just wanted things simple but that we felt conveyed a sense of who we are. We are both creeps so we wanted that to come through. I don’t think anyone was surprised.”

“We had a very short ceremony officiated by one of my best girlfriends from San Francisco, Jackie. Originally we were going to write our vows beforehand but both kept putting it off, so in the end we agreed to just keep what we said short and simple. Maik forgot half of what he wanted to say and I couldn’t say too much because I was already crying before I even walked out! I had my two younger brothers give me away and Jackie read pre-scripted vows that included a quick candle lighting ceremony and great quote from Doctor Seuss.”

Nautical Mountaintop Wedding

Kristi and Doug met through Kristi’s best friend Amanda. Doug called Kirsti his unicorn because he thought she was a mythical creature that he’d never be able to have, but luckily she totally fell in love with him too! Their wedding theme was nautical, with a vintage classic feel, and they were inspired by anchors, rope and cool classic colours.

Their wedding ceremony was held at 7,500 feet overlooking the Lake Tahoe Mountains and Carson Valley. “The whole day was perfect, but our favourite part was the ceremony,” began Kristi. “It was so emotional and extremely intimate. Having all of our family and friends there sharing in such a vulnerable moment with us left us feeling an so high.”

Vintage Carnival & Coney Island Inspired Wedding

Carnival & Coney Island Inspired Wedding (10)

Bonnie and Roy they were inspired by their love of all things vintage and Coney Island for their wedding. The theme was a 1920s carnival. They wanted their wedding to be unique and magical and decided to hold it at a camp with their guests staying in cabins for the weekend.

“Our ceremony started out with a red velvet curtain a-top a bluff over looking the Long Island Sound”, said Bonnie. “While guests wondered what was about to happen, a jazzy, circus mix led the wedding party down the aisle. Once everyone was lined up on either side of the curtain, our best friend and officiant, Gerard, stepped out from behind the curtain with a large top hat and velvet jacket. He announced us like a duo performance, as we climbed down fire escape and then walked up the aisle together. After some funny words from Gerard and our own written vows to each other, we walked down the aisle as guests threw carnival tickets over us instead of rice.”
