New Zealand Waterfall Elopement

Inspired by their love of hiking and nature, Adam and Alice flew from the States to New Zealand to get their dream waterfall location for their September 2019 elopement. 

They married at Milford Sounds in New Zealand, and spent the day searching for their perfect spot. “We had the best photographer! Kate set up our day perfectly, which had to be hard since she was all the way across the world,” said Alice.

Bold Meets Moody: A Modern Multicultural Wedding with their own City!

Stephanie and Rich married on their 10 year dating anniversary, to the day. As a couple, they love to be creative and tell a story – Rich’s proposal included an elaborate scavenger hunt to all they significant date spots across San Francisco, with meticulously planned video clues pre-recorded and all their friends and family waiting at the final proposal spot! No pressure for their wedding, then. 

The couple came up with the concept of creating a ‘city’ to represent their relationship as their reception theme. The couple have deep love for their urban lives – Stephanie grew up in San Francisco and Rich works as an estate agent. They hinted towards it with house-shaped structures and city lamps as props and created ‘destinations’ for their guests to visit during the reception based on all their favourite past-times; a car show, an art gallery, a bar named after their dogs and ‘restaurants’ of their favourite foods, to name but a few.

Budget Friendly, Minimalist Wedding with Rose Gold, Plants & Pokemon!

James and Lillian first met as members of a body modification website. After three years of chatting on MSN messenger (how all the best relationships are formed, of course) they finally met in person and became a couple after attending the wedding of a mutual friend. Many years and two children later, they decided to get hitched themselves, wanting a very laid back, chilled vibe for their day that didn’t cost the earth.

With a £3,500 budget they kept things very minimalist, incorporating subtle nods to each other’s likes; namely plants for Lillian and Pokemon for James! Using rose gold as a colour scheme throughout tied everything together and kept things cohesive.

Interstellar on a Budget: A Space & Star Wars Themed Wedding

Tori and Richard didn’t have lots of extra cash to drop on their May wedding, so instead of going into debt they simply decided to make peace with it and to plan the wedding they wanted within their £4500 means. They sold things they no longer needed (like fancy silverware that they NEVER used or even looked at) in order to raise the funds they needed (“It transpires we wanted a wedding DJ more than a canteen of fancy spoons!”) We are ALL about this attitude here at Rock n Roll Bride by the way!

They were wed at the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel on bank holiday Monday. “Since we had no idea about a theme but were trying to wrangle dinosaurs and space together as things that represented ‘us’, our theme kind of became Interstellar on a budget!!” said the bride. “I looked at Pinterest, saw some projects and thought ‘This must be how you theme a wedding in 2019… with rose gold dino toys’ because everyone else was doing it. Cue three days of haunting toy shops before we abandoned that idea and decided to do it our own way instead. Richard had started to look at wedding stationery, saw some great customisable star designs on Vistaprint and that ended up being what we went with because it just felt right.”

Easy Going, Homely, Vintage Floral Wedding

Aww Sas and Brandon! I love these two and their beautiful, quirky wedding. I know you will too! They were married in March, on their ten year anniversary. They had their day at The Plough Inn in Eaton, Cheshire.

They spent £6000 on their day, and one of the biggest savings was on their outfits. Sas wore an ASOS dress, shoes which she found for £13 in the sale and a veil from the Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory collection! She even made her own brooch bouquet. “I had decided very early on that I didn’t want to go down the avenue of visiting a wedding dress shop and buying a dress that way”, she explained. “I was very insecure about the whole thing so I was adamant that I would find something online. I did, but like most brides changed my dress! The dress I eventually went with was an ASOS one which I had altered.”

“And OMG my veil! I wanted Sophie of Crown and Glory to make it. I contacted her back in November 2017, she was super helpful and the veil I had decided on was a Nebula. However just like my dress I ended up changing my mind. The 2018 collaboration between Rock n Roll Bride and Crown and Glory had been sneak peaked and a noticed a glimpse of something so I emailed Sophie pretty much the same second enquiring about it. I think my email went something like ‘OMG are you doing a flower veil? When will the collaboration be available and would I be able to change my original veil plan!?’ She told me I might be right, that the collaboration would be released on the 8th January and if I wanted to change I could as my veil hadn’t been started yet. Once the collection dropped I fell head over heels for the Magic Garden Veil which Sophie made for me in my chosen colours of teal, blue and green. It was EPIC and everyone loved it, it was the showstopper of the day! Sophie was amazing, kept in touch the whole time and I remember the day she sent me the first video of my veil, I sobbed! Sophie even went so far as making a tiny version of my veil for our Pop! Vinyl figure cake topper!”

Punk Rock Princess: The Ultimate Emo-Inspired Wedding

In doing their initial research, Sarah and Brian quickly started to realise that for the price of a traditional package wedding at a hotel or resort, they could instead piece it together using the people, places and things they already loved. “Using our everyday favourite things as inspiration for our day made decisions easier and the wedding itself feel authentic and real.” said Sarah.

They married in a traditional Catholic ceremony, and although the church wedding completed contradicted their style, with Catholic families, they felt they felt the serious nature and ritual behind a religious ceremony was important to keep. “You have very little creative control over Catholic ceremonies,” said Sarah. “Although obviously we knew this ahead of time, it meant that the ceremony wasn’t as emotional as I thought it would be, and at times felt impersonal.”
