Colourful 1960s Inspired Wedding in Melbourne

Aww Stacey and Ben might be one of the cutest couples ever. Their adorable wedding to end all adorable weddings took place in Melbourne and was packed to the brim with colourful and personalised details. From the DIY flowers, the rainbow balloon arch and the bride’s gorgeous pink leather jacket and pink glitter trimmed veil combo – yep, there’s so much to love in this incredible celebration.

They chose May for their wedding (which is Autumn down under) and they were inspired by colour (duh!), vintage 1960s elements, poms poms, Star Wars! “Our wedding was laid back, colourful, sentimental and intimate”, explained the bride. “Neither of us grew up in Melbourne but it has always felt like home to both of us. When it came time to find venues we needed it to ‘feel’ like us  – not too fancy but also not just a purpose built function centre. We wanted something with soul. We also wanted it to be very local so that when we look back our wedding day will reflect a moment and community for that part of our lives.”

Modern Industrial Wedding with All the Feels

I hope you’re ready for some Monday morning feels because Lori and Lach’s wedding has got ALL THE EMOTIONS. They were married in Melbourne in June (on the same weekend they first met in real life after chatting for months on MySpace!) at The Budgie Smuggler, a super cool, industrial-style warehouse event and gallery space.

They wanted to make the day feel as much like ‘them’ as possible so that meant great food, a casual atmosphere and no extra fuss. “It was so important for our day to be about us with our closest family and friends joining us for the celebration”, said the bride. “We decided against a lot of the norms of wedding planning, we saw each other before the ceremony and we didn’t have a sit down meal. I didn’t wear a veil and we were two of the last people to leave the night – it was so important to us to enjoy the day for as long as humanly possible!”

Mid-Century Inspired Rock n Roll Wedding with a DIY Kissing Booth

Georgia and Vince’s wedding was hosted in the most beautiful little chapel we’ve ever laid eyes on. It was brought to life by their love of the 50s and 60s and their lovely personal and romantic day.

“Vince and I share a love of all things mid-century,” Georgia explains, “including the music, the fashion, the hairstyles, and the cars. When we became engaged, we both knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding and took influence from our love of the 50s and 60s.”

Georgia looked stunning in a beautiful polka dot tulle rockabilly dress from Pixie Pocket and a retro style veil from Me and My Girl Vintage, which sat atop her perfectly curled hair and vintage-inspired make up. Also – JUST LOOK AT HER LOVE HEART NAILS! Fierce and we’re feeling it.

Vince wore all black from Ferrari Formal Wear, with a black polka dot pocket square. We also love that Georgia and Vince got ready together in the morning, before Georgia got changed for an intimate first look.

Intimate Artists’ Wedding in the Sydney Blue Mountains

Sarah and Simon, both artists, wanted their wedding to be completely and utterly them. They chose to elope, with just three witnesses in attendance in a private cabin in the beautiful blue mountains outside Sydney. After the ceremony they made vegan lasagne for everyone. There were dried flowers, handmade map invitations and the bride wore a black (completely non-bridal) dress!

“We first met when Simon was travelling through Europe and spent some weeks in Berlin where I was living”, began Sarah. “We’re both artists and we met by chance at a life drawing evening run by some mutual friends.”

Classic Hollywood Wedding in a Botanical Garden With a Blonde Bombshell Bride

Botanical Gardens are pretty stunning in themselves, and make a real a showstopper of a wedding venue. Add that to a bride and groom channelling all the glamour of old Hollywood and you get a hands-down winner of a day.

Morgaine and Kyle met via a dating app. Kyle was the first person she spoke to – and the last! They said, “It was really easy and we were absolutely perfect for each other… It’s quite creepy when we look back at it! We don’t really believe in things like fate but maybe there was a bit of that sprinkled into it! After our first date at the pub, it was clear that this wasn’t just an ordinary meet and greet – there was a ridiculous amount of humour and affection. We both knew this was unlike any date we’d experienced.”

It was actually Morgaine who proposed to Kyle, he explained that “She thought, ‘Well, if he can ask, why can’t I?’ so she bought me some vintage onyx cufflinks from eBay and started planning the proposal. One of our favourite bands, Flowertruck, was due to play just before Christmas 2016, so Morgaine got in touch with them and asked if they would like to be part of the proposal. They were thrilled, and she arranged for them to stop mid-gig to announce that she had a question to ask me. Once they said that she (in the middle of the crowd) dropped to her knee and asked me if I’d marry her. I said yes, and the rest is history! We used this story as part of our celebrant Nathan’s intro during the ceremony.”

Pastel Goth Unicorn Wedding for $1500!

I was trying to figure out how to best start 2018 with a BANG, wondering what would be the perfect post that would start as we mean to go on for the year ahead… And then I laid eyes on Suzi and Ivan’s fantasy, fairytale and UNICORN THEMED WEDDING and the decision was basically made for me. This has to be one of the coolest weddings I’ve seen in a long time! They got tattoos, the bride wore a floral purple dress and they even a real life unicorn for goodness sake. Oh and very the best part? The whole wedding only cost $1500 (AUD). Truly incredible.

They were married in Glen Innes, New South Wales in August. They met when the bride moved to the area. “I had moved to Glen Innes from the city and was hating country life”, she explained. “I figured since I don’t like cowboys, I’d never find someone in this tiny town. After a year living here, I was asked by the elders to be the new church door greeter since I ‘look cool’. So that first Sunday night I was merrily shaking hands and welcoming people to the service when I spotted a golden Adonis across the car park heading my way! I mumbled a hello through my drool and then turned to who was next to me and said ‘Dibbs! That one’s mine!’ Six months later he finally came around and decided to ask me out haha!”
