Modern Winter Witch Californian Wedding

Kelly and Oscar describe their wedding as “modern winter witch themed” and we’re inclined to agree. Their beautifully moody day was inspired by witch practices including herbalism, crystals, tarot and the importance of natural, balanced elements.

“These elements weren’t just for show,” the couple explain, “but are things of importance to both of us. Having all the elements present, that the building had openings in all directions (north, east, south, west), crystals to bring good energy and spirits into the area, herbs to chase away bad energy and spirits, celebrating the cycle of life by having both living and dead pieces; all of these details were intentionally brought in to not only create a fun ambience for the guests, but to include things of deep meaning and importance to us.

Scandinavian Inspired Festival Wedding Weekend (Where the Bride Arrived on a JCB Digger!)

Jess and Sven’s weekend long Scandi-boho inspired festival wedding was as laidback as they are, and organised in just FOUR MONTHS! “We work abroad for most of the year, running a sailing boat in the Med,” said Jess. “So despite being engaged for well over a year, we hadn’t made any effort to even set a date.” On a whim in May 2017, they couple decided on that very September, and then planned and organised the whole thing from Mallorca!

The couple had a weekend-long wedding, officially marrying on the Friday at Worcester register office with just close family present. Their humanist ceremony on the Saturday was performed by an officiant (who happened to look like Father Christmas, NBD) and held in a field owned by the family of the bride.

As the wedding was held completely outside in England in September, of course the had the weather to contend with, although thunderstorms didn’t dampen their spirits throughout the day, even if the ceremony was very nearly completely delayed due to a massive thunderstorm. “Sven phoned to say all the guests had run inside the tipi to hide, and they were helping themselves to drinks, so they were fine, but I couldn’t get there!” After the storm passed, Jess, her bridesmaids and pageboy were transported to the venue in the most unique way – a ribbon decorated JCB digger! Planned by Jess and her Dad as a surprise for everyone else.

Laid Back Outdoor Wedding… with Lots & Lots of Crisps!

Amy and Martin went from slumming it in “grotty uni accommodation for four years” as friends, to getting wed at the beautiful and swanky Hampton Court Palace last August with a £13,000 budget. Their goal was to make the day as fun and stress-free as possible, and to wear pants that were in keeping with their surroundings. Yes, you read that correctly. More on that later.

Amy said, “We were our own inspiration. We wanted to make it as personal to us as possible. So having scratch cards as favours, a quiz at the reception, and rude wording on light boxes all helped to make it a fun, laid back day!”

They chose to have their ceremony and reception in The Garden Room for several reasons, said Amy. “Firstly, it’s where we got engaged. Well, sort of! Martin pulled up on a boat on the river in front of Hampton Court and proposed with a Haribo ring (sweet, right?!) Secondly, it’s stunning and I am a massive history geek, so it was a great backdrop to our big day. Thirdly, we live down the road and wanted somewhere local and relatively easy for the majority of our guests. We also wanted the venue and reception in one place to keep logistics simple and maximise drinking time (priorities!) Finally, I work there – some people might find it weird to get married where they work, but it’s a spectacular setting and certainly not your average office, so it made complete sense to us to have it there.”

Relaxed Boho Woodland Wedding With a Rock n Roll Twist

Megan and Ben’s autumnal wedding took place at stunning Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was filmed! It’s also rumoured to have inspired J. R. R. Tolkien. Huge cool points from the get-go! Getting the legal bit sorted in the register office the week before freed the couple up to take full advantage of this amazing location, and also to have long time friend of theirs, James, officiate.

The bride described the wedding theme as, “Relaxed, boho, happy vibes with a rock twist,” and when asked what the inspiration was said, “Honestly, I’m not entirely sure… I wanted to still have traditional elements with our own twist on them, for example I love how heavily tattooed brides in white challenge the classic virginal expectations.”

“Our venue was completely and utterly magical, if I do say so myself”, she continued. “It’s also not a place that usually offers weddings, and so I knew that what we would create on the day would be completely unique. We stayed as true to ourselves as we could, down to the music, food, and decorations, but our guests loved it because they love us! The fact we had one of our close friends ‘marry’ us made it incredibly personal.”

Jordan & Jordan’s Enchanted, Bohemian & Disney Wedding

Well this is something you don’t see everyday – a bride and groom with exactly the same name! But the unconventional aspects of this couple’s big day don’t end there, their Texas wedding was packed full of quirky and unique details.

“Our theme was an an enchanted bohemian fairy garden meets dramatic Rock n Roll wedding”, said the bride. ” The song and aesthetic of Kari Jobe’s The Garden album was the biggest inspiration to us.”

They hosted both their ceremony and reception at their church which is also where they first met in 2012! ” My uncle performed the ceremony and wrote personalised vows for us”, the bride continued. “Our ceremony was lighthearted and fun. Everyone thought the groom was going to pass out though! During communion, we played the lyric video for Kari Jobe’s The Garden and utilised the growing ivy aesthetic to complement our décor.”

Laid Back Bohemian Destination Wedding in Ibiza

Natalie and Edward got engaged in Ibiza so decided to also have their wedding there! Their day was held in a nature reserve and was bohemian in style and super creative. As they were having a destination wedding they decided to throw the rule book out and ignore tradition.

“We knew the venue well and wanted to keep the day as simple as possible,” began Natalie. “As it was in nature reserve there was a lot of wildlife and flowers around. The venue itself was very minimal and white so it just looked gorgeous as it was. We took pastel coloured paper streamers and tie dye balloons with us but that was it. Neither myself nor Edward wanted a traditional outfit. He wore a gold and black camouflage suit and the bottom half of my dress was rose gold sequins!”
