The Night Sky, Skulls & Rock n Roll Inspired Tipi Wedding in the Rain

Brad and Joolz chose 27th July 2019 for their wedding so didn’t think they’d have to worry about the weather… however the universe had other ideas! Despite having a mostly outdoor day planned, and it being scorching hot the week before, it chucked it down all day. Rather than stress about it through, they grabbed some umbrellas, moved their ceremony inside the tipi and embraced the chaos.

“If there was one thing I had repeatedly said for the year leading up to the wedding, it was that I wanted a beautiful hot summer wedding and no rain!” Joolz began. “Well, it rained non-stop ALL WEEKEND but oh how we didn’t care! When it comes down to it, after all the planning, stress, organisation, creating, making and everything else that you think is important, it turns out none of it’s important at all. When I stepped out of the car my brother drove with my dad, ducked under my umbrella laughing with the girls in the rain, it all just seemed so trivial and ridiculous! We were about to have the best day of our lives, and the rain just made it all the more special.”

Interstellar: Celestial Wedding Inspo with a Chotronette Dress

We don’t feature styled shoots that often here at Rock n Roll Bride any more, far preferring the real details involved from your gorgeous wedding days, but when something this dreamy lands in our inbox, we can’t resist! Husband and wife team The Chamberlins have longed to shoot a celestial-themed set-up for a long time; Celle is obsessed with all things starry and both her and Will feel a deep spiritual connection to the heavens due to their faith. They told us; “we wanted to celebrate the beauty, the freedom and the vastness of the skies by arranging a celestial-themed styled shoot.”

Their main priority was the dress – they knew they didn’t want any other gown other than the Aurora Borealis gown by Romanian designers and Rock n Roll Bride faves, Chotronette. “For us, the dress epitomised a glorious dusky sky with its soft pastel tones combined with the sparkles of the stars,” Celle told us. “We specifically wanted to steer away from darker tones that one can often associate with the night-sky and instead, play on the dusky colours that preempt the darkness and reflects a different type of otherworldly feeling.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream meets 1920’s Vintage Themed Wedding

Jamiee and Logan met on Tinder, but their story is a little bit cuter than that. After a week of chatting, they went on their first date, where they found they had loads in common, including a love of travelling, and both felt like they’d known the other for ages! However, Jamiee was due to move to London for two years. After just two months of dating Logan bit the bullet and asked to go with her, and she immediately said yes! “That’s how our adventure began,” the bride told us. “After living in London for nearly 2 years we travelled across Europe on our way back home to New Zealand, and on the trip, Logan proposed on the Greek Island, Naxos. Travel meant even more to the two of us after that!”

When it came to planning their February 2020 nuptials, the couple knew they wanted a laid-back, outdoor wedding in the middle of summer with lots of greenery, foliage and being amongst the trees. “We wanted something quite whimsical,” Jamiee continued, “but with a nod to the 1920’s, seeing as we got married in 2020!” They combined star lanterns in with the foliage and hundreds of fairy lights, and a big half-moon photo booth tied the two themes together. The bridesmaid dresses tied into this two, with star embroidery, and they paired them with celestial accessories. “I wanted to feel like a vintage, Hollywood starlet, seeming I love to dress in vintage/pinup style.”

Autumnal Meets Celestial Themed Seaside Wedding

Although Kate and James kept traditional elements in their day, they did so in their style. As they both love autumn, it was the perfect season for their celebration to be held at East Quay Venue in Whitstable.

Kate handmade pretty much everything they used to decorate the venue, which made it very personal to them, and they incorporated their favourite musical influences as their love of which brought them together, too! 

Kate created faux floral hoops for all the bridesmaids, as well as faux flower centrepieces in vintage glass bottles that they had collected from various seaside holidays – in them were the table names which were vinyl records as a nod to their love of music. The table names were romantic quotes from geeky or 80’s movies.

As an artworker, Kate also made all the stationery and table plan with faux greenery and for the aisle she decorated lanterns with faux greenery, mini pumpkins and log slabs. She made a light-up ‘Hell Yeah’ sign for the dance floor, and their guest book was an Alexisonfire vinyl record as they where the first band they discovered which they had a mutual love for.

Budget Friendly Celestial meets Pinup Themed Wedding with a Symbolic Wedding Dress!

We love it when couple’s include symbolic touches here at Rock n Roll Bride, and Jackie’s reason for choosing her wedding dress when she married Wil is one of our favourites to date – it was the dress she was wearing when she met him three years ago!

“I was doing my first popup shop for my business Pinup Pixie Boutique at a vintage cafe,” the bride explained. “He walked up to me and complimented me on my dress and then walked away. We met again a year later, I had just come out a very toxic relationship and I became a single mom. I met him at my worst and he brought me back to life.”

“On our first date I wore the galaxy dress. We clicked immediately and he became my safe place and my home. He made me believe in love again and he became a father to my two little girls. I describe our love as when the stars meet the moon.”

Celestial Meets Sparkle Wedding (with Dogs!)

Bryony said she always wanted to get married on their anniversary, so when she and James got engaged (on their 4th anniversary) and she realised that not only did their 6th anniversary fall on a Saturday but the date was 22/02/2020, it was settled! They opted for a celestial theme very early on and as shes not a fan of flowers, they didn’t have any! Instead of floral bouquets and buttonholes, she made star and moon ones out of glittery card (which cost lest than £50 in materials!) She also made their cake and place names. Her dad made the moon photo backdrop and her mum made her iridescent sequined skirt using a YouTube tutorial!

“We felt really lucky to have all these creative people around us who practically jumped at the chance to help us,” Bryony said. “I tried on some ‘proper’ dresses but none of them felt like me. My top was second hand from Depop (with a Primark vest underneath), my headpiece was Crown and Glory and I found my veil on Etsy.”

In total they spent around £6000 on the day, keeping costs low was helped by all of the DIY and finding a new venue that exactly suited their needs and budget. Around half the budget was on food and drink and they splashed £500 on hiring a Routemaster bus, but to them it was totally worth it as it was such a fun experience and made for great photos!

“I didn’t want our wedding to look like I had just copied everything from Pinterest so I made it as personal to us as I could”, she continued. “I’m sure there were little details that a lot of the guests weren’t even aware of. Our wedding rings were engraved with a map of the stars the date and time we got engaged, and then I named all of our tables after stars, constellations and planets that were on that star map. I really wanted our love for each other to shine through above all else.”
