Relaxed ‘Peace & Love’ Themed Wedding

Inspired by wildflowers, woodlands and the 60s aesthetic, Jessica and Scott were married in September in Huddersfield. A huge part of their day was the music as they wanted to use it to create the perfect atmosphere for the celebration.

As Jessica told us, “We had a lot of music from The Beatles, and basically the line-up of Woodstock! I walked down the aisle to a string quartet version of Here comes the Sun and we walked out to the drinks reception to The Ballad of John and Yoko. Our first dance was to the song Life Eternal by one of our favourite bands, Ghost.”

Simple Wedding Day With a Bride In Red, Chip Butties & Five Wedding Cakes

Maria and Joe wanted a day that was all about simply celebrating with friends and family; reuniting and having a great time. Maria told us, “We kept the day very simple for our guests. Only my dad and I walked down the aisle (the bridesmaids were seated with the guests instead) and we had a small drinks reception and then went straight for dinner. We didn’t have speeches, we didn’t have a first dance, and we cut the cake to signify the start of the evening.”

Self-love, body positivity, feeling confident being in the skin you’re in – it’s such a huge roadblock for so many of us and there’s so much to unpack, where do we even begin? And that’s not even taking into account how much your self-worth can nose-dive when you get engaged and realise how much toxic bullshit is (still) so prevalent in the wedding industry!

Snowy Colorado Elopement at Sunset with Disco Balls & Champagne

Dani and Dacari had been discussing how their big day would look for a long time. Having been together for eight years, they decided to elope because, as they told us, “The stress of figuring out how to include everything and everyone started to chip away at something that was supposed to feel like magic – elopement was the best choice that we could have made for ourselves and our union. We wanted the freedom to commit to each other in a way that felt deeply personal and private.”

Nightmare Before Christmas Wedding with a Halloween Fairytale Masquerade

With all the guests in costume and a showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Lea and Mazz embraced a Halloween theme for their wedding. They had masquerade masks for their aisle walk and an autumnal colour scheme.

Lea explained, “Mazz and I both adore Halloween, and coming from a pagan family myself, I’d always enjoyed making a big celebration of Samhain growing up. As Mazz and I also both love Tim Burton films, especially The Nightmare Before Christmas, it was a no brainer to take inspiration from it for our wedding. We also both love fantasy, so getting to incorporate fancy dress ticked that box for us too.”
