Smiley & Simple London Wedding with a Sequin Jumpsuit

Sian and Amir met on dating app Hinge – their first date was on a dreary Tuesday evening in January at Mother Kelly’s in Bethnal Green. Sian told us; “We ended up drinking 5 pints of strong IPA and that was it, we were smitten! Amir proposed on New Years eve 2020 – He had bought the ring 6 months before when we had only been together 6 months. It was really a case of when you know you know.

They wanted their wedding to be in London as that is where they live, and they liked the aesthetic and feel of other urban/city themed weddings. “I like the idea of weddings happening around chaos of people going about their daily lives.”

COVID put stop to their big-pub knees up plans, but in the end, it made the couple reassess what was truly important – who was there and getting married. “We just wanted to get married at this point, and ended up being one of the last couples to do so before the second lockdown in England. Initially, I was stressing about place names and menus etc, and se spent ages thinking about our invitations but ultimately, 90% of the people we invited couldn’t actually come. So it really simplified things for us.”

The Garden of Unearthly Delights: Adelaide Fringe Festival Wedding

Kate, who is originally from Perth, met Ethan while she was living in London. Ethan is in a band and they were reunited at Fringe World Festival in 2017. Kate had returned to Perth and was working there, and Ethan and his band flew over to perform!

Two years later they married, and of course they had to do in a way fitting for their love story, so they chose to do it at Adelaide Fringe Festival, specifically in the Corona Theatre in The Garden of Unearthly Delights area.

“Neither of us had ever really imagined getting married”, Kate told us, “certainly not in a hurry, but it was the only way to guarantee we could get a visa to live in the same place. Once we knew we were getting married it was a great excuse to get carried away in the romance of it all!”

A Lazy Las Vegas Elopement

After getting engaged, Ben and Laura very briefly considered having a ‘normal’ wedding – but after thinking about how much planning and organising would be involved quickly vetoed that idea. “We agreed we definitely didn’t want a big wedding,” said Laura, “so when Ben cheekily suggested Vegas, I agreed immediately!”

While they didn’t have a particular budget in mind, in total for their trip they think they spent around £5,000. “Our flights and hotel were our biggest expense,” said Laura. “We figured as we weren’t splashing out on a big wedding, we should book an amazing hotel.” They saved big time by having no guests present, so there was no big catering tab to pick up, or reception venue to pay for. The both wore highstreet outfits – Laura in a jumpsuit from Coast, and Ben in Joules, and made them their own by adding accessories from Etsy and things they already owned. They relinquished extras like hair and makeup (“I dragged my hair into a low bun with my own fair hands!”) in favour of focusing on what really mattered to them – ending their day being married to each other and celebrating just got they liked it; low key and lazy.

Laidback Pride Themed Barn Wedding with Trinidadian Feast and Colourful Bridal Suits

OK, prepare your minds, bodies and souls for the stunning wedding that’s about to grace your screens – this is not a drill! Anna and Steph’s beautiful barn wedding had a focus on “Good food, good music and fun” with a colour scheme to celebrate Pride. It was natural, un-fussy, and totally, breathtakingly beautiful.

The ceremony started with Anna and Steph dancing down the aisle together hand-in-hand, each in incredible wedding outfits influenced by powerful women. “As two women we decided not to go down the traditional ‘one dress, one suit’ route,” they explained. “Anna, inspired by Janelle Monáe’s style, wore an iTailor blue suit with braces. Steph, inspired by Beyoncé, wore a Tina Waller jumpsuit in her favourite colour, orange (with a touch of lace). For both of us, pockets were an important feature! Seeing each other for the first time in our outfits was a standout moment for us both.”

Their ceremony was held in the barn at Bellows Mill, Bedfordshire. “We chose the venue because they allowed us to get creative and personalise the space,” they continued. “Due to our outfits being less bridal than is traditional; and the day in general being less ‘weddingy,’ we wanted to be a bit more traditional/bridal in the barn decoration so we went for cream and golds. Anna’s parents decorated the barn beautifully with gold and cream drapes, fairy lights, and art work from the local wickerman!” Their family and friends, representing three generations, delivered beautiful and meaningful readings, and Anna and Steph read poems instead of doing traditional vows.
