Romantic & Gothic Park Elopement

Sarah and Andrew knew right from the off that they didn’t want to spend a ton of money on their wedding day – as they had both been married previously, they already knew that the most important thing at the end of the day, was just themselves. Armed with a $3000 budget they set about picking their destination, and their outfits – and the rest they let happen naturally!

They knew that what they did have for they wedding day, that they wanted to reflect their personalities and their similarities in style – they just wanted to be themselves! For Sarah this meant rocking a pair of Vans under her black tulle gown, which she DIY’d by combining a highstreet dress with a tulle overskirt for just $300. For Andrew, a houndstooth waistcoat and trousers, collar chain and again, his trusty Vans!

Alternative Yet Rustic “Piss Up in Brewery” Wedding

Nia and Lewis had always joked about ‘cordially inviting people to a piss-up in a brewery to celebrate the marriage of…’ years before they’d even thought about getting engaged. Over the years the joke stuck, so when the time came it was obvious that that was what they actually had to do!

They held their big day at the Hillside Brewery, Gloucestershire in April 2019. With a budget of £6000, they focused on having a fun, relaxed day full of laughter and a celebration not only of their love for one another, but of the great people in their lives. “We really did commit to the ‘piss-up in a brewery’ joke,” said Nia. “We even took the wedding party on a brewery tour after the ceremony!”

Relaxed Battersea Arts Centre Wedding with a 90s Cover Band

Viki and Stef wanted to take the traditional wedding format and put their own spin on it. They were married at Asylum Chapel in Peckham, London followed by a reception at the Battersea Arts Centre complete with a 90s cover band!

“We wanted to make the wedding as fun as possible, with lots of personal touches”, Viki began. “Stef’s best friend and usher Sam played keys as I walked down the aisle. We were lucky enough to be assigned the most amazing registrar, Ricardo, who created a super relaxed atmosphere from the get go. As we are both performers, we couldn’t resist throwing in a Grease sing-a-long in the mix too! Honestly, the ceremony was probably the part we were both the most nervous about, as it felt like the most serious part of the day, but we had SO much fun actually getting married! After the ceremony we served sausage roll snack packs and had a pimp your prosecco stand, before loading everyone onto two Routemaster buses to take them to Battersea Arts Centre for the reception.”

All-Black Everything: A Death Metal Inspired Wedding

The inspiration behind Lauren and Travis’ wedding came from two places; being themselves, and their love of death metal music! “My family were not thrilled about certain things in the lead up to our wedding as they’re very traditional,” said Lauren. “But we didn’t compromise who we were and went ahead with them anyway!”

For the couple this meant staying true to their own personal style. The whole wedding party, including Lauren, wore all-black – and even most of the guests embraced the dress code too (including Lauren’s parents, as a show of their love and support!) They had an-all black wedding cake, with black skull topper and a black macaron tower.

Halloween Themed Wedding with Sword Swallowers, Drag Acts and A Costume Contest Reception!

The inspiration behind Kris and Landon’s big day was the fact that Kris has never been to a Halloween party… no, really! “It’s the best holiday because your only obligation is to dress like an ass and then get candy for it. So we said screw it and threw a Halloween party,… but you know, just got married in the beginning.” Kris explained.

Costume party aside, the vibe they wanted was ‘dinner and a show’… with some good old fashioned freaky Halloween fun! They took their theme and ran with it. As entertainment, they had a sideshow act perform sword swallowing, walking on glass and a bed of nails act while their guests dined. Kris’ brother had recently started competing in drag competitions and agreed to do a number after dinner. It was followed by a costume contest, which their friends and family embraced wholeheartedly.

Intimate Las Vegas Wedding with a Black Dress & Neon Green Veil!

Christine and Eddie’s elopement is like a lot of the Vegas weddings we feature in so much as they had a quickie quickie chapel ceremony and spent the afternoon waltzing around the city taking fabulous photos. The thing that really made their day stand out to us though was Christine’s INCREDIBLE one-of-a-kind outfit, it’s not every day we see a bride rocking a (home made!) neon green veil!

They were married in August at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “The idea for our wedding was for it to be Vegas, fun and intimate”, said the bride. “We honestly did not use much for inspiration, we wanted to just do our own thing and do it in a way that we would love and remember. We wanted to keep it about us and just have fun with it.”

“I definitely think our outfits were very unique. They are not something that a bride and groom normally wear. I always loved the idea of having a black wedding dress and my green veil was  just green tulle I bought and put in with bobby pins! Eddie’s gold suit went perfect with my black dress and the wedding location. I also had a necklace made that says ‘Edine’, which is the couple name we gave ourselves.”
