Jewel Toned Wedding on Halloween with Celestial Touches

Inspired by their love of Halloween, Harry Potter and autumn weather, Ellie and Luke spent around £10,000 on their October wedding. They handmade a lot of the elements themselves, from gifts for the bridesmaids to the groomsmen’s ties as well as props and decorations. 

Held at De Vere Horsley Estate in Surrey, the day was styled by The Fairy Godmother of Weddings – aka, Ellie’s mum, who also took care of all the florals for their day. They tasked celebrant Jenny Knight with crafting a truly personal ceremony, and catering was provided by the venue, which was their biggest expense.

Sustainable, Unplugged Wedding with Celestial Details

Hosted at a sustainable artist community, Arcosanti in Arizona, Lauren and Caitlin incorporated a gorgeous celestial theme to their day, with a timeless feel and plenty of sparkles. They didn’t have any single use plastics in the day, nor did they want anyone involved to conform to any gender roles.

They told us, “Watching it all play out was the best thing about our wedding. Having it all pull together to create the celestial theme we wanted was a very beautiful and fun process. Finding a spot off the beaten path was a big challenge for us. We wanted to create something that reflected us and our love.”

They chose to have an unplugged wedding, asking guests to be fully present with them in the ceremony and promising to share all the pictures afterwards. Caity continued, “Both of us walked to different songs, Caity’s sister married us, we each wrote our own vows as we stood on the ceramics studio platform surrounded by art and creation as we created our life together.”

Moody Celestial Wedding with Bridesmaid Dogs

Since getting engaged in October 2018, Becca and Ashley’s Pinterest board contained their dream wedding day. Having navigated a few postponement bumps along the road, it all turned out fine in the end and as Becca told us, “Everything turned our exactly like how my Pinterest board dreamed of since we got engaged!”

Ditching traditional bridesmaids for brides-dogs and shooting for a celestial theme, the couple chose a dark and moody palette, with pops of colour in the florals and the natural green outdoor backdrop to add some freshness. “I told Ashley to pick the theme”, Becca continued. “Ashley loves astrophotography and space, so I took that idea and ran with it for our décor!”

Dark & Moody Gothic Soiree with Witchy Celestial Details

With a rumour circulating amongst friends that they tried to get married at a morgue, in reality Taylor and Kaylen settled for a beautiful outdoor wedding at Ritchie Hill in Concord, North Carolina. Incorporating their dark and moody theme was important to them, with astrological elements and a black and deep-toned colour palette.

“We wanted to incorporate our love for all things witchy and magic, so we numbered our tables by tarot cards, and our escort cards were arranged by astrological sign”, they told us. “All the escort cards also had a horoscope on the back for each guest.” The favours also fit the theme perfectly. As a ceramic artist, Taylor designed and made over 100 black porcelain ceramic bottles for their guests and to complement the décor.

Pick ’n Mix Public Hall Wedding Inspired by Good Music & Good Vibes

Josie and Adam took the traditions they liked and lost the ones they didn’t for their August wedding at Stretford Public Hall, creating their own, authentic, pick n’ mix wedding celebration that was an explosion of both of their personalities. “We were inspired by our love for one another and the moon and stars,” Josie told us. “We did the day as cheaply as possible and made everything ourselves. One of my favourite parts of the whole thing was our families coming together the day before to help us set up.”

With a budget of £8,000, there wasn’t an aspect of the day that they couple and their families didn’t have a hand in. The bride and her family made the ‘Josie and Adam 4 Eva IDST’ banner and the stained glass moon and star centre pieces, the groom’s mum and her friends made a ridiculous amount of bunting, and Josie turned her hand to the order of the day board, seating plan and confetti holders while Adam made the invites, table decorations and activities for their guests – old school fortune tellers and comic books of ‘their story so far’.

A Collision of Galaxies: Celestial Glam meets Bowie Inspired Wedding

Tom and Geneva have a metaphor for their relationship: ‘a collision of galaxies’. “We swirled around each other our whole lives,” the bride told us. “He played at the venue I stage managed and we had all the same friends, yet we don’t recall meeting until the time was right years later. Once our gravitational forces took over, we were inseparable; we started dating while I was working SXSW festival, which was crazy because I worked hours like 9am-2am that week, but I still wanted to see him after!”

They played up the star theme as much as they could for their July wedding day; from Geneva’s veil to her earrings, the stationery and the signage down to the ray guns for their grand exit photos. She knew she didn’t want a white wedding, either, so used blue a lot instead.
