Colourful & Artistic Australian Wedding with a Parade

With the dress code for the day ‘try to outshine us!’ you just know you’ve got a fun, colourful wedding on your hands! Anna and Alex were inspired by ‘everything and anything’ for their October wedding held in Redfern, Australia. “We only paid attention to traditions that we cared about and agreed with, so we left out a lot of things that people are used to seeing at weddings,” Anna said.

“We had (too many) ideas based on our interests and what we thought would be fun for guests,” she continued, “but the real inspiration came once we found our venues. We looked at lots of more traditional venues, which came with impressive views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House etc, but after seeing a few one day we ended up visiting the cellar door of our favourite vineyard, and had such a great time.”

Colourful Pride Themed Scottish Wedding

Fiona and Allana wanted their summer 2019 wedding to reflect their personalities and their love story. They met at primary school (although were in different years so they didn’t really know each other) and reconnected when they both started working at the same place. Although neither of them were out at the time, they instantly clicked, knowing what they were feeling for each other was more than just friendship.

Married at The Three Kings in Falkirk, Scotland, their day was all about sharing their personalities with their closest friends and family. “We tried to incorporate little bits of our personalities all throughout the day”, Fiona told us. “Our table plan was made up of our favourite bands, some of which we had went to see live together. My favourite colour is blue, there are sapphires in both my engagement and wedding rings and that’s also Allana’s birthstone. Royal blue was our primary school colour too! Everything just fit. The day after, all our family and friends just kept saying what a great, happy, colourful day it was. I know all weddings are supposed to be, but everything just felt so right, you know?”

Colourful & Industrial Los Angeles Wedding

This LA couple met at Disney while both working on Moana; Alyssa was an artist and Dave was brought into help manage her department. Once the movie was released, they were an item, and they married in April 2019 at HNYPT LA, a studio space location in downtown Los Angeles.

They went for a colourful meets industrial vibe for the day. The bride explains, “We put both of our personalities into our wedding. We wanted everyone to feel welcome, as if they were coming into our personal space. We brought Filipino traditions from my side and some Jewish traditions from Dave’s. Dessert was a soft-serve ice cream truck which was a huge hit!”

A long time friend of Dave’s, who is an actor, led their ceremony. Alyssa walked down the aisle to the theme from My Neighbor Totoro, accompanied by both of her parents. “We prepared our own vows”, she continued, “I went first and asked for our gathered friends and family to raise their hand if Dave had ever helped them. The amount of hands was overwhelming that Dave couldn’t even look. Dave finished his vows with a quote from one of my favourite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Crazy & Colourful Three-Day Campsite Festival Wedding

When one wedding day isn’t enough – have three! Didi and Mark had their legal ceremony on the Friday, the main event on the Saturday and much needed recovery time on the Sunday. They hired Canvas and Clover, a luxury campsite situated on a working farm in Worcestershire, for the whole weekend.

“The inspiration for our wedding was to have a time and place to celebrate all the good things in life”, Didi began. “I recently found out that my family (which is rather large) only got together for sad times so I really wanted to be able to gather my family for a positive reason! What better excuse is there to have a three-day wedding!?”

Colourful Botanical Themed Festival Wedding with Shetland Unicorns & Food Trucks

Vicky and Rich’s magical festival wedding day was full of fun, colour and a whole lot of creativity. They had real life unicorns (OK, OK so Shetland ponies with horns on but same-same), Pimms on the lawn, a baby pink ice-cream van and delicious food served from some of Cambridge’s most popular food vans. There was a colourful botanical theme to the decorations which were all made by the bride, her mum and the groom. Vicky’s mum, who owns a haberdashery shop in Cambridge, also added some colourful personal touches to Vicky’s tea-length WED2B dress.

The day started with blessing held in the woodland adjacent to the village green, and although the wedding took place in June, the bride walked down the aisle to a Christmas song – I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday by Wizard (her favourite!) The space was decked out in fairy lights and an archway covered in hundreds of crocheted flowers made by a friend.

Colourful “Piss Up in a Brewery” Wedding

It’s no secret that we LOVE a colourful wedding here at Rock n Roll Bride, so Jess and Rob’s day, which took place in July 2019, was right up our street. They were married in Lancashire at Holmes Mill, Clitheroe, an old textile mill and has the longest bar in Britain! As the bride studied fashion at university and the groom loves beer, it seemed like the perfect spot. “We literally had a piss up in a brewery!” Jess laughed.

Jess bought her dress from Dreamcatcher Bridal, but she didn’t like the traditional shape. She opted to cut the long train off (“the lady in the shop was horrified!”) to make it her own. She then had the giant bow added as well as some lace from her grandma’s handkerchief which she had on her own wedding day.
