Circus Performers’ Big Top Big Day

A spectacle to behold from beginning to end, Rosey and Emilion’s circus wedding was a collaboration of the things they love, in a place they love, with the people they love.

With the circus in his blood, Emil’s family ties to the big top go back for generations, whilst Rosey packed her bags as a teenager to work as a knife-thrower’s assistant, before being trained by Emil’s mum as an aerialist. The couple fell in love in the big top, and so it was the perfect place to celebrate their wedding.

Rosey told us all about their unique ceremony, “The whole ceremony was written by ourselves. The groomsmen danced down the aisle to Billy Idol’s White Wedding, followed by Emilion on the back of his sister’s motorbike (which she normally foot juggles on). The flower girls and bridesmaids walked to Wonderful World, then my dad and myself followed with La Vie en Rose (a homage to Emilion’s french side). My mum performed a hilarious poem ‘The story of Emilion and Rosey’ then we sobbed our way through our personal wedding vows.”

“Emilion whistled my dog, Pepe, and he brought the rings wearing a cushion made of my mum’s wedding dress and bowtie out of my dad’s wedding suit. After a beautiful song by my friend we released the ‘Dove of Love’, our fabulous camp friend who pranced down the aisle in his extra feathered costume, handing out roses! The whole thing felt so personal and an absolute celebration of our love, the joining of people in and out of the circus community.”

Colourful Zoo Wedding with A Parrot Ringbearer & A Dinosaur Cake

With a parrot delivering the rings, welcome drinks with penguins, a couples shoot with a sealion and a few lemurs thrown in for good measure, Fern and Scott’s wedding was a celebration of their love of animals as well as each other.

The couple chose to hold their ceremony at St Laurence’s Church in Kirby Misperton, Yorkshire, before heading to The Mansion at Flamingo Land for their reception. Fern explained, “Our love of animals was the inspiration for our wedding, and Flamingo Land has a special connection to our family as my dad is in charge of the shows at the Flamingo Land Zoo. We wanted a lot of colour and animal elements. I chose leopard print dresses for my bridesmaids, which was the best colour ever.”

Gothic Red & Black Wedding With Peaky Blinders Groomsmen and a Hint of Horror

Taking inspiration from their own home décor along with weddings featured in Rock n Roll Bride Magazine and a shared love of horror films, Jodie and Matthew were determined to create a day to remember. Planning through various lockdowns, their day was a chance for friends and family to meet up again. 

“We loved hearing the excitement about our wedding as it was going to be the first big get together since COVID had started meaning there were people we hadn’t been able to see in ages attending. There was a buzz around the big day for over a year and to see everyone’s faces light up when they could see what we had put together, watch us get married and be able to enjoy themselves surrounded by friends and family was such a lovely thing to witness.”

Simple Wedding Day With a Bride In Red, Chip Butties & Five Wedding Cakes

Maria and Joe wanted a day that was all about simply celebrating with friends and family; reuniting and having a great time. Maria told us, “We kept the day very simple for our guests. Only my dad and I walked down the aisle (the bridesmaids were seated with the guests instead) and we had a small drinks reception and then went straight for dinner. We didn’t have speeches, we didn’t have a first dance, and we cut the cake to signify the start of the evening.”

The couple had a £10,000 budget, and saved money with DIY projects, drying flower petals for confetti, making the table runners and putting together flowers for the reception themselves. Joe also chose a suit he could wear again, and the pair opted for high street outfits.

Maria told us, “We were very lucky to have lots of talented friends support us with things like signage and flowers. we saved money by not spending on things we felt we didn’t need like favours and invites – we used a wedding website and sent save the dates digitally.” They also chose five different cakes from Costco, and cut the red velvet one.

Oh and that a global pandemic can happen at anytime so be prepared adapt your plans!”

Emma and Josh met at college when they were 16, fell in love, and just 18 years later, decided to marry! They wanted a super chilled, relaxed wedding, full of bright colours, without any fuss. With a chippie lunch and ice cream dessert, they had a fun, laid back seaside wedding in Brighton.

Emma told us, “It was a running joke that we would never get married, then when Josh finally proposed I got straight onto the planning and booked March 2020, but then Covid happened… So our invites, as well as my jacket said, ‘At Last’, and we continued the theme through to the processional music, Etta James At Last, which raised a chuckle! The whole ceremony was light-hearted and full of laughter.”
