Easy Going, Homely, Vintage Floral Wedding

Aww Sas and Brandon! I love these two and their beautiful, quirky wedding. I know you will too! They were married in March, on their ten year anniversary. They had their day at The Plough Inn in Eaton, Cheshire.

They spent £6000 on their day, and one of the biggest savings was on their outfits. Sas wore an ASOS dress, shoes which she found for £13 in the sale and a veil from the Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory collection! She even made her own brooch bouquet. “I had decided very early on that I didn’t want to go down the avenue of visiting a wedding dress shop and buying a dress that way”, she explained. “I was very insecure about the whole thing so I was adamant that I would find something online. I did, but like most brides changed my dress! The dress I eventually went with was an ASOS one which I had altered.”

“And OMG my veil! I wanted Sophie of Crown and Glory to make it. I contacted her back in November 2017, she was super helpful and the veil I had decided on was a Nebula. However just like my dress I ended up changing my mind. The 2018 collaboration between Rock n Roll Bride and Crown and Glory had been sneak peaked and a noticed a glimpse of something so I emailed Sophie pretty much the same second enquiring about it. I think my email went something like ‘OMG are you doing a flower veil? When will the collaboration be available and would I be able to change my original veil plan!?’ She told me I might be right, that the collaboration would be released on the 8th January and if I wanted to change I could as my veil hadn’t been started yet. Once the collection dropped I fell head over heels for the Magic Garden Veil which Sophie made for me in my chosen colours of teal, blue and green. It was EPIC and everyone loved it, it was the showstopper of the day! Sophie was amazing, kept in touch the whole time and I remember the day she sent me the first video of my veil, I sobbed! Sophie even went so far as making a tiny version of my veil for our Pop! Vinyl figure cake topper!”

Industrial Meets Tropical & Rose Gold London Wedding

Inspired by an East London club night coupled with a strong desire to do things differently, Rebecca and Reece planned their wedding for March this year. They wanted their day to have a real old meets new feel so chose a reception venue with an industrial vibe, The Depot in Holloway, and decorated it top to bottom in tropical, sparkle and bubblegum pink themed things!

“We’d been inspired by a club in London called Moth Club, which was an old social club that had been rejuvenated for an East London crowd”, explained Rebecca. “It had all it’s old features mixed with glittery curtains and metallic streamers! We wanted something that felt quite old and industrial mixed with twinkly lights, tropical leaves, and glistening copper, so I guess our theme would be old Industrial meets 70s social club. We paired this with a colour scheme of pinks, reds, greens and copper/rose gold.”

Thai Restaurant & Rock Bar Wedding with a £4000 Budget

Sarah and Ben met on MySpace in 2007 when they were just 15 and 16 years old. They had a long distance relationship, seeing each other every weekend, until they went to the same university and moved in together. “Since then we have adopted three cats, moved house four times, and spent over 11 years together”, they said.

With a £4000 budget and a desire to get married without anything too fancy, expensive or posh, they planned a perfectly ‘them’ cerebration for January this year. “We wanted the day to be very us”, said Sarah. “Nothing too posh or over the top – we just wanted everyone to be happy, eat good food, get drunk and have fun partying with us.”

“A lot of our friends commented on how before our wedding day they hadn’t enjoyed attending friend’s weddings because they were so structured and formal. I believe we managed to have a relaxed although organised wedding day which allowed everyone to be themselves and have fun.”

Emotional Tattoo Artists’ Festive Wedding

Lydia and Mike, who met in a tattoo shop and now work together as tattoo artists, were married on December 7th in Leicester. They wanted their day to reflect the season so they picked lots of Christmassy and winter-inspired details. The bride in particular loves Christmas and history which also influenced their venue choices.

“Our wedding was themed around the winter season and elegance”, said the bride. “Our ceremony venue, The Guildhall of Leicester, is so atmospheric by itself, especially with the fire roaring. Our ceremony was conducted by our city council registrars, this was perfect for us as we aren’t religious. The addition of personal vows and a reading from my grandma made the ceremony very special to us. We absolutely love the Guildhall as our ceremony venue as it has so much history (Shakespeare performed there!) and felt honoured that we could have our ceremony in such an important building for our city.”

Relaxed Battersea Arts Centre Wedding with a 90s Cover Band

Viki and Stef wanted to take the traditional wedding format and put their own spin on it. They were married at Asylum Chapel in Peckham, London followed by a reception at the Battersea Arts Centre complete with a 90s cover band!

“We wanted to make the wedding as fun as possible, with lots of personal touches”, Viki began. “Stef’s best friend and usher Sam played keys as I walked down the aisle. We were lucky enough to be assigned the most amazing registrar, Ricardo, who created a super relaxed atmosphere from the get go. As we are both performers, we couldn’t resist throwing in a Grease sing-a-long in the mix too! Honestly, the ceremony was probably the part we were both the most nervous about, as it felt like the most serious part of the day, but we had SO much fun actually getting married! After the ceremony we served sausage roll snack packs and had a pimp your prosecco stand, before loading everyone onto two Routemaster buses to take them to Battersea Arts Centre for the reception.”

Rock n Roll Gothic Fairytale Wedding

Wow, wow, wow! Get yourself ready because you are going to LOVE Hannah and Andy’s wedding! They were married on 7th September 2018, their eight year anniversary, at Allerton Castle, a beautiful gothic castle in Yorkshire where some scenes of The Secret Garden were filmed. They wanted their day to feel personal and although they ended up spending quite a bit more than they originally planned, they have absolutely no regrets! The day was opulent, dramatic and just what the bride always wanted.

“Our wedding was a Rock n Roll meets Disney Fairytale meets The Addams Family theme!” began the bride. “I’m not sure that’s a thing but that’s what we were going for! We just wanted to create a celebration around who we are as a couple, what music we like, our tastes, hobbies, things we like to do together. I think most girls growing up have ideas here and there about their wedding day and for me that was always gothic, November Rain, good music, skulls and sequins! I got so wrapped up in the world of wedding planning.”
