As wanderers, Karie and Jared wanted to encompass their desire to explore the majestic mountains of Colorado for their September 2020 wedding. Their secret elopement was romantic, scenic, and most importantly – unique to them.
Katie wore a dusky blue Chantel Lauren dress with hiking boots, of course, and an aquamarine ring from Zacchariah Zypp & Co. Jared wore a Men’s Wearhouse suit and his ring was from Jewelfire Diamonds. Karie reminisced; “changing into a wedding dress and suit in the back of a rented SUV while hurricane-force winds threatened to steal anything that wasn’t nailed down kicked off our adventurous and unforgettable day.”
Talk about a breathtaking ceremony location – Genevieve and Joseph made the journey from Denver to Colorado to celebrate their wedding day with eight of their closest family members in the beautiful mountains between Durango and Silverton, Colorado. A few months prior, Genevieve contacted Love Untamed Collective inquiring about planning intimate wedding possibilities. Meg from the company had a breathtaking location in mind and won Genevieve and Joseph over with her ideas that matched what they envisioned for their special day.
Joseph said, “We’ve always loved the natural beauty and stillness of the mountains, overlooking the landscape and being close to the vastness of the sky was the perfect place for our purest love for each other to culminate. I’ll never forget turning around to see Genevieve before we were married, Genevieve is absolutely gorgeous and it felt like a fairytale moment for the both of us. Being married to your dream girl and best friend is the most wonderful thing!”
It may feel at odds to be sharing a winter wedding in June, but we couldn’t resist the beautiful yet simple details of Brooke and Matt’s November celebration. if you’ve pushed your wedding back to the winter, or you’re now planning to have a much smaller day, you will LOVE this.
Even before they were engaged, Brooke knew that when she got married she’d never have a big white wedding. “I’m a long time fan of Rock n Roll Bride and I think it was very much down to you that my partner and I had the confidence to make our wedding in a way that truly reflected us”, she wrote (also awww we love this!).
They decided to travel to Yorkshire from where they live in Adelaide , Australia, to have their intimate ceremony at Gibson Mill Hardcastle Crags, a National Trust properly in West Yorkshire. They had just six guests there with them. Afterwards, they returned home and had a bigger reception in Adelaide with 125 of their loved ones.
“We feel like travelling overseas was a pretty big move away from the traditional wedding format”, she said. “We certainly heard that as feedback by many friends and family but it was more than going overseas, everything we did had a reason, a family, cultural or historical tie. When we returned home and showed our stunning wedding video everyone said to us that they understood why we did it that way.”
Chloe and Mitch both love going to festivals, so they took some inspiration from that for their summer wedding without being too gimmicky. Their main inspiration for aesthetics came from their venue, Elmley Nature Reserve in Kent. They wanted everything to be simple, natural and suit the surroundings.
They nicknamed their wedding Camp Cubitt, with all their guests staying on-site with them for the whole weekend in farmhouse, shepherds hut and teepee accommodation. This gave them the freedom to spend plenty of time with their loved ones, even hosting a BBQ breakfast the morning after the wedding.
Meet Tesni and Andrew: Married on May 4th, they had small touches of Star Wars throughout the day, but also included their other favourite movies and novels (lots of Terry Pratchett!) in the table names and decorations. The pregnant bride chose to wear blue as a nod to their son who was due two months after the wedding… And, even better, she found it for £500 in a closing down sale!
The day had an elegant, vintage and timeless feel, but also feel personalised and very ‘them’. “Our wedding theme was to just tell our story – eclectic, personal and slightly geeky!” said the bride.
The ceremony was originally planned for outside, but to make things easier for the seven-month pregnant Tesni, they moved it indoors to the great hall at Plas Dinam Country House at the last minute. “Its stunning moulded ceiling and deep coral walls went perfectly with our colour scheme”, she explained, “and everyone staying in the house had eaten a pre-wedding dinner made by my mum in there the night before so it just felt completely relaxed.”
Tadas and Dovile adore nature and spend nearly all their free time walking, camping and relaxing in the great outdoors, so it was the perfect starting point for inspiration for their wedding. They wanted a day that was laid back, relaxed, and suited them as a couple.
They started their day by getting ready separately, and then meeting in the woods for a first look, quick dog walk and photos. They had initially intended to have an outdoor ceremony, but had to move it inside last minute due to the threat of rain. After a unique, personal service, they headed to their reception – a picnic by the lake! They had a relaxed afternoon with family and friends, enjoying good food, drinks and games.
