Autumnal & Rustic, Cruelty Free London Wedding

Sam and Jay always planned to be married on Halloween – because every Halloween since they first met nine years ago on a dating site, they have played host to a fancy-dress party and people now expect it of them. Jay’s grandparents also got married on Halloween, so they wanted to follow the tradition. 

Unfortunately COVID scuppered their plans for a big fancy dress ball where the theme would have been ‘anything goes’ (including both grooms in custom-designed wedding dresses!) but they were still able channel the Halloween vibes with autumnal tones, pumpkin centrepieces and hessian and lavender mixed in too – they even had burnt orange facemasks for the bridal party, so no detail was left unconsidered.

An Autumnal, Geometric Themed Italian Wedding with Two Ceremonies

Alice and Simone found a creative way around COVID restrictions for their October 2020 wedding day – they split the day into two! Guest numbers were limited to 30 just days before their wedding day, so after much deliberation they decided in the daytime they would have their civil ceremony with their families, and in the evening a symbolic ceremony with their friends!

“Not everybody gets to enjoy such an experience as two ceremonies,” Simone told us. “Both were beautiful and unforgettable without any effort, and that’s all because of the affection of our families and friends. Alice was often in a giant puddle of tears!”

Relaxed, Boho Wedding with A Floral Dress

Ava and Nic were actually introduced by Ava’s dad. “Nic had met my dad at a local Trap Shooting Club,” Ava told us. “But the first time we saw each other Nic was hanging out the side of his best friend’s ride (haha) They beeped at me at me sitting at an intersection and waved to me. Apparently I sped away and he knew I stole his heart right then.’

Planning a 2020 wedding mean there was the obvious spanner in the works – COVID – but the couple scaled things back to an intimate affair in their own backyard. “Like for many couples, planning a 2020 wedding sucked but it did bring us closer together and made us realise what is really important; our love for one another. And now we get the best of both worlds! A small, intimate, family wedding ceremony and a large party and celebration later on!”

Cute & Happy Intimate Wedding with *the* Strawberry Dress

While the rest of the world was going stir-crazy being locked up with their significant other, Nadine and Michael spent March 2020 falling in love over Facebook Dating, talking together day and night. They finally decided to meet IRL and quarantine together, and the rest, as they say – is history!

The couple didn’t have a set budget in mind, but Nadine had her heart set on a Lirika Matoshi Strawberry print dress, and the rest was bought on sale. Nadine explained; “our outfits were important to us, as due to COVID we had never had the opportunity to dress up for one another and go out. This was our one excuse to dress up!” Nadine kept her hair natural, did her own makeup, and the couple selected reasonably priced rings.

Intimate, Dog-Lovers Backyard BBQ Wedding

We were the cliché of not looking for love, but we found it…on Tinder!” Kandace and Cade told us. “We knew we wanted a non traditional wedding, but initially were planning a larger affair. However when Covid-19 hit, it was ALMOST a relief that we could have a small wedding without offending friends and family. It had gotten to the point where we almost felt like we were inviting people as an obligation to anyone that met us. As it was, we ended up with a guest list of 40 that have really impacted our lives and will still be in our lives down the road.”

A ‘backyard BBQ but make it fancy’, was the couples’ inspiration for their day. They didn’t care much about things like cake or stationery– but they did care about infusing their personalities into the wedding and throwing a freakin’ awesome party for their loved ones!

“We wanted it completely unique to us,” Kandace continued. “Our flower girl and ring bearer wore unicorn and bear onesies respectively, complete with light up shoes. We had temporary tattoos with our surname on, custom aprons made for everyone so they could get stuck into the BBQ fun without worrying about ruining their attire, even our rings were different; Cade’s is made with dinosaur bone and mine has a London Blue Topaz as the centre stone.”
