Nat and Alfredo got married at the Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia on the 24th of August. They were inspired by Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet and Frida Kahlo for their theme. The bride explains, "Both are visually captivating with symbolic imagery, but at the heart of it, are about two people who connect and commit to each other. They're not fairy tale love stories but are about the strength of love. I’ve always loved the symbolism in Romeo and Juliet and it was also something the represented Rome (where we met) and Alfredo’s background."Read more...

Josi and Max wanted their wedding day to be different from every other wedding that they and their guests had attended. They took inspiration from all the things they love - fashion, art, Star Wars, Guns 'n' Roses, classic Viennese culture and good coffee - to create a day that was more of a big party than an elegant gathering. They just wanted it to feel very true to them.Read more...

Ella and Michael's wedding is the wedding of plant lovers' dreams. Their venue was the Glasshaus, a plant nursery based in Melbourne, and their styling was simple, green and nerdy - in the most breathtaking way! It's so beautiful I'd even brave the 42°C heat (yep, celsius, you read that right; Ella and Michael got married on the hottest day of the year) to be there, and that's coming from a girl who complains at 22 degrees. But enough about me - let's talk about this STUNNER of a big day, shall we?Read more...

Sarah and Scott's September wedding was originally meant to be held completely outside in a beautiful hollow in the trees at Hirst Priory, amidst beautiful lighting and hay bails for everyone to sit on. However, thanks to the UK weather and its mischief, they had to rethink and bring the outdoors in for much of it, including the arch! But then check out those moody skies and try and tell me you don't love them. Do not fear the rain, people. It can never bring a good wedding day down.Read more...

Liz and Marc's big day has it all: Succulents, vintage style, a canal boat, Dolly Parton covers, a handmade quartz crystal crown and matching leather jackets with portraits of their Huskies painted on them! They wanted everyone to come to the wedding and say "This is so you two!" - and we think they TOTALLY nailed it. From the start of the wedding journey, when Marc proposed with his Nan's 70 year old ring during a period of serious illness for Liz, we knew it was going to be an emotional and personal one - but it's also super stylish and a riot of fun too.Read more...

Matt and Laura, who met at University, went for a dark botanical theme for their London wedding. They were inspired by their reception venue, The Islington Metal Works and used their prop store to source a lot of the decor. They also brought in lots of things from their own home (and the homes of their friends and family!) and handmade what they could. The DIY projects included their wish tree for guests to write on, and even the cabinet where they placed the wedding favours. They were collection of personal trinkets and curios that they'd bought from various flea markets in Berlin and San Francisco that would suit each guest. Guests were invited to look through the cabinet and find the one with their name on to take away - talk about going the extra mile am I right!? All-in-all this was one hell of a cool and creative event.Read more...

Botanical Gardens are pretty stunning in themselves, and make a real a showstopper of a wedding venue. Add that to a bride and groom channelling all the glamour of old Hollywood and you get a hands-down winner of a day.Read more...

Raegan and Randy had their summer wedding at Blackmint Collective Tattoo Studio in Oklahoma City. It was the perfect venue as they and most of their bridal party and guests all have tattoos. There's a real industrial feel to their day, with the venue's exposed lighting rigs and brick walls dotted with modern art, all softened by details like pastel-glazed donuts and the delicate greens of succulents. It's a look that says modern wedding with an edge, and it's beautiful.Read more...

Courtney and Sanford met at work ten years ago when Sanford came in to cover a shift. They were both wearing the same black women's jeans and spent the whole time shamelessly flirting and laughing together. During their decade long romance they lived in different places (him in Arizona and her in Southern California) so would often meet up halfway in Palm Springs. When they came to planning their wedding they knew it had to happen there. Their theme was a groovy Palm Springs, classic rock, boho and Halloween mash up!Read more...

Megan and Brad wanted their wedding to be a blend of natural, industrial and vintage, with a nod to the wabi-sabi aesthetic; the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. They were inspired mostly by modern industrial and moody botanical styles. They also knew they wanted to get married in New York City, where they met and have lived for some time.Read more...
