Colourful, Homely, Backyard Wedding

Nadine and Evy met each other five years ago and during a collaboration at work, a spark lit between them. At first they didn’t know what happened and what to do with these feelings for each other, as both of them never had feelings for another woman before. It was a delicate situation, but they said yes to the butterflies and they just went for it.

For their wedding day, they wanted for their guests to feel at home, welcome and relaxed. The held it in their own backyard – their ‘safe haven’ – in May 2019, and spent €6000 to make their daydreams a reality. They started collecting things, like trinkets and ornaments, a year in advance which not only helped spread the cost, but they really enjoyed keeping an eye out with their big day in mind. They filled the day with things they loved – from the rainbow confetti and pompoms their guests showered them with after they said their “I Dos”, to the kids’ face painting booth during the reception – every decision they made had to represent either of them in some way!

Till Death Do Us Party: A Colourful Scottish Halloween Wedding

Both Jade and Jamie are big fans of Halloween so knew they wanted to get married at this time of year and base the theme on that. Their initial concern was that they didn’t want anything looking too tacky and more like a Halloween party, so they focused on a mix of neon, tartan, sequins, skulls and brightly coloured pumpkins for a fresh take on theme. 

They used Pinterest, Instagram and of course, Rock n Roll Bride as massive sources of inspiration. The phrase ‘Till Death’ stuck with them from the beginning, with Jamie even DIY’ing a massive neon sign as well as using it in their vows and then getting it tattooed on their arms shortly after the wedding!

Colourful, Mexican Themed Wedding with Wrestling, Skulls and Cacti!

Vicky and Phil’s May 2019 wedding was inspired by their love of colour, Lucha Libre wrestling and cacti. With a budget of £13,500, their venue – West Bay at Titanic Hotel, Liverpool – was their biggest expense, but they loved it as soon as they saw it and were so happy with how they ran the day. It also included the catering, which was a big thing to tick off their list! 

The best thing about planning their wedding was being able to make it tailored to them – they didn’t worry about whether it was traditional or ‘weddingy’ – if they wanted it, they had it! They had two best men and a best woman. Their 3-month old son sat at the top table with them. They had no idea what the other was wearing – and each ended up in a blue outfit with red shoes!

Colourful Wedding with a Bouncy Castle, Pub Quiz & Quidditch Match!

Ali and Robin built their entire June wedding day around their loves and interests, and more than anything – they wanted to bring people together to have fun. They day was heavily influenced by film and music with popcorn on seats for guests and a playlist of their favourite film scores before the ceremony. Their tables were named after locations in their favourite films, which they then included in a question in the pub quiz they hosted before dinner. 

They wanted their day to be relaxed, informal and fun. They created a mash-up of their backgrounds – a ceilidh band to celebrate Robin’s Scottish heritage and a cookie table as is tradition where Ali is from in the States. They also included elements like the pub quiz, Mexican-style street food wedding breakfast and a bouncy castle that encouraged their guests to have fun together.

A Tuesday Morning Manchester City Centre Wedding

Becs and Megs’ simple wedding started with a ceremony at Manchester register office followed by a restaurant reception at No 1 Canal Street. Armed with a budget of £3500 they only included things they cared about, wore outfits from Karen Millen and kept the extra decorations minimal. The flowers were limited to their bouquets and the flowers in their hair.

“Our wedding theme was Manchester city centre, rainbow and glitter gay!” they said. “We just love each other and wanted to get married! That was all the inspiration we needed.”

They actually started by planning a secret wedding ten weeks before the date. They were going to just ask just two friends to be witnesses which is why they ended up getting married on a Tuesday at 11am! “The ideas then began to grow as we decided we couldn’t be married without our dearest present to celebrate”, they continued. “We were so humbled that people came from Switzerland, Scotland, Ireland, Devon, London, the lakes, the Midlands and Manchester to support us. Everyone had to take a day off work and make childcare arrangements, but none of this seemed to matter to them, we invited them and they were so happy to be invited. We loved marching them across Manchester form the registry office to Canal Street, carrying seven rainbow umbrellas just in case!”
