Red, Yellow & Blue Cardiff Covid Wedding

Like a lot of couples, Helen and Jordan’s original June 2021 wedding plans fell through due to the pandemic. While they’ve pushed their big humanist celebration back to 2022, they kept their original register office date and decided to still make an occasion of it, but just do something small, quirky and meaningful and not worry too much about traditions. “I’ve never really wanted a wedding that was super traditional anyway,” Helen told us,” so planning this small ceremony and just doing it the way we wanted was a very freeing experience.”

The couple spent less than £5,000 on their day, and adopted a colour scheme of red, yellow and blue, as Helen is a lover of bright colours and knew she wanted to wear a red dress! She chose a 1950s vintage style dress from British Retro, with shoes by Wedding Converse and decided to make her own bouquet out of paper. Jordan sported a matching buttonhole in the yellow and blue hues, and their guests were invited to take the colour scheme on board for their own attire and run with it, if they so wished.

Eclectic & Relaxed Brunch Wedding with a Catholic Ceremony & and Personal Exchange of Vows

Kim and Ian described their July wedding as eclectic, relaxed and full of surprises. They chose the same date as their first date, 12 years later, as their wedding day as it was a special date to them already. After a Catholic ceremony and a personal vow exchange, they hosted a brunch reception for their closest friends and family.

“As with many who planned their wedding day during a pandemic, ours was filled with uncertainties and unanswered questions,” Kim explained. “It felt like a moon-shot to make it happen. One thing that really helped us is outlining three MUST-HAVES for our wedding day, and if we got those everything else was a bonus. The key things for us were to be surrounded by our loved ones, to serve some great brunch food and to get married on July 24th.”

A Crazy Colourful Wedding with a Leopard Print & Dinosaur Cake

Shell and Mark celebrated their wedding on 5th June and while they had a lot of friends and family that couldn’t be there, they still wanted to go all out and have the colourful wedding of their dreams for their ten guests. As a glamping blogger, and using Rock n Roll Bride as their main source of inspiration, Shell’s vision was for a camping meets colourful party at Glamping Thorpe in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The bride made all the décor and centrepieces, she customised the wedding favours and collected vintage coloured vases. She made close to 100 multi coloured and leopard print pom poms which were used in the wedding arch. Little Cherry Cake Company made their incredible cake, but the dinosaur cake topper was DIY too.

1970s Inspired Glencoe Elopement in a Recording Studio

After having a huge festival style barn wedding planned last year, Jenny and Ryan decided after a few failed attempts to just elope to Glencoe with just the bride’s mum and sister present.

Their day was held at St Mary’s, a former chapel now turned recording studio and wedding space that oozes eclectic, bohemian style. Set overlooking a dreamy river and unreal mountains. “We feel like we planned so many forms  of a wedding that this seemed so easy and relaxed in comparison,” the bride told us. “We wanted to make all the choices we did not have the opportunity to had we had a big wedding, and make it about all the things we loved. I guess you could say the inspiration was us.”

Fantasy Meets Steampunk Wedding

Tania and Mir wanted to create their own fantasy world for their August wedding. “In our world, everyone should feel free and comfortable without any straight rules,” the bride told us, “and we strongly agreed on one thing – that was to avoid any stress in the lead up.”

For this pair, that meant pairing dreamy florals and rustic charm with their love of all things steampunk, and inviting their guests to join them! “Steampunk clothes were not a must for our guests, as we understand how hard it is to think of a costume, but we invited them to take part if they wished. To our amazement, the majority of our guests arrived in these amazing costumes. We were overwhelmed!”

Emotional COVID Wedding inspired by Coburg & Cairns

Vika and Tyler’s inspiration for their June 2020 wedding was ‘home’. The split their photos between a tropical rainforest greenhouse, to represent Tyler’s hometown of Cairns, Australia, and the old town of Coburg, Germany for Vika’s hometown. They wanted to bring their worlds together for their day.

Due to COVID restrictions, Tyler’s friends and family were unable to join them from Australia, so they ended up having their own party for the couple down under and joined in throughout the day over FaceTime. “It almost become two parallel parties on two continents,” Vika told us, “which is pretty cool when you think about it!”
