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.

Celestial Wedding with Skulls, Fairy Lights & Lots of Leopard Print!

Fern and Danny were inspired by the video to their first dance song – well, when they can have one that is! As a 2020 couple their plans didn’t quite match the reality, but it made them realise that the most important thing for them is each other and their families.

“We wanted to take some of the celestial elements of the video for Tonight, Tonight by The Smashing Pumpkins, the vintage inspired love story and how beautiful the song is and try to build our wedding around that,” Fern told us. “We had lots of stars, moons and fairy lights, but mixing in some ‘us’ elements too.”

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.”
