From "really bad portraits" to a spinning wedding cake, Leti and Andrew's winter wonderland wedding in Central Park was all about having fun. They hired Ricky from Really Bad Portraits draw guests throughout dinner and cocktail hour and he was so popular, he ended up having to stay late! They also brought in custom video games company to homage to the fact the couple bonded over their mutual love of video games in the early part of their relationship.

It may be summer (allegedly!) still, but if you're planning a festive wedding with an alternative edge then you are going to love Caro and Sam's celebration. Being non-binary, Caro in particular didn't vibe with a lot of the traditional wedding messaging, so they opted to do things their own way. Caro wore a custom made black dress from Lucy Can't Dance, they hired a the street food venue as their location and planned the day together.

If you’ve had to postpone your summer wedding until the winter, you’re going to love the festive inspo from Jess and Tom’s December 2018 celebration. The couple had been dating since they were teenagers and ten years later Tom proposed to Jess with the most perfect 1920s emerald ring. This, and the fact that they desperately wanted to keep their early December anniversary as they’d been celebrating it so long together, inspired their festive theme, but they kept it true to their everyday style with plenty of rock n roll touches.

Sarah loves decorating her and Richard’s house for Christmas, so this drew the first inspiration for the couple’s November wedding day. “We wanted a family friendly, rustic yet glamorous, cosy and romantic winter wedding,” explained Sarah. “I love decorating the house for Christmas with rustic, old fashioned decorations and lots of winter foliage, and wanted to capture that coziness for our wedding. I also love all things vintage, especially 1950s and Rockabilly, and had to give a nod to the styles I love so much.”

Tara and Mido's wedding took place in December has style in buckets - and we mean BIG buckets. Christmastime is magical in London anyway but this gorgeous couple really brought the sparkle and glamour with their celebration. They described it as 'Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet meets a Vanity Fair shoot' - we love that! The wonderfully talented Lisa from Devlin Photos captured it perfectly in all its glory.

At first glance, this is a gorgeous wedding full of all the details that Rock n Roll Bride readers go nuts for. But this is actually a styled shoot! And it has a beautiful story behind it... Vanessa ('Vanny') and Martin are very close friends of photographers Anna and Johannes. When they were all children, Anna's little sister brought her friend Vanny home from school. Vanny's father had died of cancer and her mum had a new boyfriend and so was almost never home. Vanny was mostly living off pizza and soft drinks, said Anna. "Since my family is very sociable (and crazy), we kind of adopted Vanny and so she spent a lot of time with us during those years, and we went through a lot together. Johannes and I had a styled shoot planned, and we asked Vanny and her boyfriend Martin to be the models. What they didn't tell us was that not only they were freshly engaged, but they were also expecting a baby! Our shoot then turned out to be half styled and half real wedding, with me doing a speech in church, everybody crying, and our friends playing the parts of the bridal party!"
