Intimate, Boho Wedding on the Winter Solstice with a £3,000 Budget

Alice and John (who is non-binary), married on December 21st in an orange meets boho meets 70s themed day. Armed with a budget of £10,000 they actually underspent, with everything coming in for less than £3,000! They did this by deciding to cut their guest list way down, buying their outfits from independent and Etsy sellers and changing their venue from a traditional wedding venue barn (which would have cost £4k) to Craven Cruck Barn in Appletreewick which was only £400 for the day!

“We got married on the winter solstice but absolutely didn’t want a Christmas themed wedding”, Alice told us. “We tried to draw ideas from the more pagan side of the solstice with the greenery. A lot of the inspiration came from our personal styles, we wanted to keep it true to ourselves!”

Autumnal-Inspired Rustic Wedding With a Sparkler Send Off

A focus on fun was the order of the day at Chris and Kara’s wedding, with a relaxed vibe, limbo, a dinosaur dance party and a sparkler send off to celebrate. They chose The Wood Shed in Vista, California as their venue, featuring natural wood, a gorgeous pergola to say their vows, and strings of twinkling lights to dance under.

The couple chose an autumnal colour palette, with red and rust tones through the flowers and the bridesmaids in orange velvet. The colours matched the venue’s worn leather and wood theme perfectly, and fresh greenery and a neon sign added a pop to lift the palette.

With a bridal party drop-out the night before, Meg stepped in to the maid of honour role, bringing a hand steamer and essential fashion kit emergency items with her! Nik told us, “She brought an overall air of calm that was such a welcome help during the most overwhelming moments of my life. Despite all the anxiety and last minute changes, I could not have imagined a better person to have next to me on my wedding day and look forward to a lifelong friendship with her.”

Laidback Lakeside Wedding in Germany

Another victim of Covid regulations, Lucas and Jessica’s wedding had to take place with only a few family guests, meaning their photographer couldn’t attend. But they made up for it with a fun barefoot photo shoot complete with their wedding decorations, flowers and smoke.

Jessica told us how difficult it was to even get married, “We wanted to get married for our souls, but the fight against German immigration made it so hard for us. There were so many papers, but all the planning really connected us – it bonded us really strongly and was emotional in a good way!”

Boho Cornish Elopement with a Secret Beach

Strip a wedding back to basics; a couple in love and somewhere to wed, and you might find that an elopement suits you perfectly. Hollie and Adam wanted their day to feel like a runaway fairytale, so they escaped to St Just in Penzance on the stunning Cornish coast, with the focus solely on the two of them.

Writing their own vows made their ceremony incredibly special. With just the two of them, their words were for each other only, and they were then able to spend the rest of the day together, exploring Cornwall and taking some epic photos.

Autumnal Boho Meets Lord of the Rings Wedding

High-jumping over a table to meet Lynsey on a night out, Ben set the tone for a completely individual union, and the couple married five years later. They wanted to share all the things that they love with their friends and family; Lord of the Rings, Bilbo their dog and great food and music. Choosing Halloween as their wedding date inspired a beautiful autumnal palette of orange, brown and red at The Loft at the Rabbit Hotel, Templepatrick in Northern Ireland.

Lynsey and Ben wanted everything about their day to be personal to them, so with ‘bridesmates’, no maid of honour and Bilbo the dog as ringbearer, their ceremony was unique. Lynsey told us, “I walked down the aisle to String Ninjas playing Dreams by The Cranberries. The vows were amazing! We wrote our own vows and neither of us knew what the other would say. I have a fascination with sharks so I thanked Ben for sitting through Jaws on repeat. When Ben did his vows he referenced Jaws too, so it tied in really well! The most special moment was Bilbo coming down the aisle with the rings to Concerning Hobbits! He came straight to us then sat through the rest of the ceremony as good as gold!”
