Like most couples who wed last year, Kayla and William had to make some big changes in order to have a small pandemic-friendly wedding. They were originally planning a big, country club wedding for August, which has now been postponed to 2021. However as the pair have lived apart for 4 1/2 years of their five year relationship (the groom lived in Ohio and the bride in New York), they just wanted to be married already. Their kiss after the ceremony was the first time they had kissed in over 200 days!

Bethany and Ryan's styled their summer 2019 wedding impeccably with 70s influences and a laid back vibe. They chose a warehouse space, The Ellis Building in Vancouver, as the venue, which they loved because it was a real blank canvas, didn't have too many fussy details but also didn't need much in the way of extra decorations - it was super cool on it's own. They really just wanted to have a big party with their friends and family, to eat tacos and drink tequila!

Rural & Free-Spirited, 1970s Themed Wedding

Allie and Brian describe their first moments of falling in love as ‘like the same existential self-discovery that so many people waxed lyrical about in the late ’60’s and early 70s’. So, coupled with their love of music from the same era (cosily nestled between the folk and Rock n Roll genres), they used this as a starting point for the shaping their wedding around that same kind of ‘groovy, grounding energy.’

Sam and Mike got married in Vegas. They eloped and only told their parents they were doing it. Their friends had no idea, in fact they thought they'd gone to Greece on holiday! The couple didn't have any professional pictures taken of their Vegas elopement (they just snapped a few on their phones). When they returned home, they decided that they did really want to celebrate with their families too. So they decided to have a party in Manchester, with Tandem Photo there to capture the magic.

Mark and Chai both love everything about the 1970s, so it was clear that this had to be their wedding theme. They were married in Manilla in March. "Our wedding was a DIY 70s hippie-themed day", began the bride. "We jokingly called it 'hippy ever after'! We love all the elements of the 70s: the music, colours, vibe, and art, and having all these in our wedding made it very unique, unpretentious, and very ‘us’. Both of us wish we were born in the 70s and our wedding actualised that dream!"

A Native American Ceremony, A London Skyline View & A Bride in an Orange Jumpsuit: April & Dennis

My Beautiful Bride

October 28, 2014

There are some weddings I see which (forgive me, I know this is terribly unpatriotic) I instantly think, "damn, that's SO COOL, it can't be a British wedding". It's nice to be completely wrong though, especially with this wedding. In fact "SO COOL" doesn't even cover it a little bit... April and Dennis are off the richter scale! The Dutch/Kiwi groom and his American bride met in Amsterdam while they were both travelling around Europe. Long story short, they fell in love and settled in London. They were hitched on the roof of Rockwell House, a studio space in east London that comes complete with epic views of the capital's skyline.

Ahh Emily & Chris' Florida nuptials is what my wedding dreams are made of. Getting ready in the Hard Rock Hotel (my spiritual home for sure) this achingly cool pair had their beautiful wedding at Ybor City Museum Garden in Tampa. Emily wore the Greenbow lace gown by BHLDN and Miu Miu shoes, while Chris kept it casual yet chic in a checked shirt and a vintage velvet jacket combo. The 1970s is an era that many might feel should be left back with the flares, disco and Woodstock hippies, but I'm am here to tell you the exact opposite. How bloody cool are these two?!
