Margo and Deven had to change their plans for their September 2020 wedding so many times that they threw themes out the window. Instead of focusing on flowers or decor, they were inspired by the nature they got married inRead more...

Thirteen years ago this month I registered the website rocknrollbride.blogspot.co.uk so I had somewhere to talk about planning my wedding. The year was 2007 (before Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook groups where a thing) and the way most of us connected with other people online was through closed forums or websites such as LiveJournal and MySpace.Read more...

There’s an old saying that some people enjoy getting married so much they go on to do it more than once, which was exactly true for Caroline and Michael - except this time, all three times were to each other! Buckle up dear reader, because this one is a whopper!Read more...

Bryony said she always wanted to get married on their anniversary, so when she and James got engaged (on their 4th anniversary) and she realised that not only did their 6th anniversary fall on a Saturday but the date was 22/02/2020, it was settled! They opted for a celestial theme very early on and as shes not a fan of flowers, they didn't have any! Instead of floral bouquets and buttonholes, she made star and moon ones out of glittery card (which cost lest than £50 in materials!) She also made their cake and place names. Her dad made the moon photo backdrop and her mum made her iridescent sequined skirt using a YouTube tutorial!Read more...

Micaela and John knew they wanted to tie their wedding in with a three week trip of the US, but beyond that, they were easy! “We originally thought we’d rock up to a Vegas chapel,” explained Micaela, “but I was not like most brides and planned everything last minute. A week before the wedding I was going to book the chapel and found out that the ones we were interested in charge extra for bringing your own photographer, which we had not budgeted for, and they charge a lot for a 10-minute ceremony anyway! After chatting with our photographer, he suggested we travel out to Salvation Mountain - he’d remembered me mentioning our interest in it and we decided why not!”Read more...

Suzanna and Jake have one of those happily ever after love stories from an American rom-com; they went to school together, and lived on the same street as kids, but didn’t start dating until a mutual friend introduced them when they were 19. They got taking because of a shared interest in Oreo cereal and Southern Comfort and the rest is history!Read more...

After 17 years together, Chris and Sammy made sure that when they did finally decide to tie the knot, they were going to do things their way! The main inspiration for their day was how they didn’t want their guests to feel constrained by convention or pressured to spend lots of money coming to their wedding, so ‘come as you are’ was an overriding thought. After that, they focused on a colourful festival vibe - they used to go to the Big Chill Festival when it was still running so they wanted their wedding to capture the spirit and feeling of the fond memories they have from there.Read more...

Barbara and Scott had a big, family-centric wedding in Scotland in a poly-tunnel on the grounds, Colstoun House, a beautiful house and stable conversion. With colourful seasonal wild flowers, local hops and lots of personal touches. Their centrepieces included Disney princesses, dinosaurs and gin bottles for each table.Read more...

Raquel and Chris found inspiration absolutely everywhere for their September wedding, and as such, ended up with a pick ’n mix theme based on all the things they love! They didn’t worry if things went together or suited anything else - they just decided to have subtle details of the things they love or that meant something to them.Read more...

Sarah and Dave fell in love in the desert when Sarah lived in Arizona acting as her younger brother’s caregiver as he recovered from a heart transplant. It was a difficult time, but the beauty of the desert had a real impact on them. When Sarah returned to New York, the couple started looking into weddings in the Southwest, and planned their wedding for exactly one year later; there was no better place to celebrate their love for one another and their families.Read more...

Faye and Jay wanted their day to be fun and colourful with good food, friends and music. They served pizza and garlic sauce for their evening food (which, unsurprisingly, went down a treat) and they had garden games such as giant Jenga and space hoppers as their post-ceremony entertainment.Read more...

They chose a local village hall for their September wedding. This not only meant Bronia and Joe had a lovely blank canvas to decorate however they liked, but it was a really affordable option (£500 to have it from Friday morning to Sunday!) The groom wanted a really big wedding, but the bride wanted to elope, in the end they met in the middle (ahhh, the secret to a happy marriage right?!) and had something medium sized but relaxed and informal.Read more...

After being together for eleven years, and having two children together, Holly and Ben didn’t feel the need for any pomp and ceremony when they decided to tie the knot in June 2019. With a £4,000 budget, they focused their efforts on the areas that mattered most to them, keeping things casual, light hearted and fun - just like them!Read more...

Ashleigh and Ric decided early on in their engagement what they didn’t want for their wedding day; “We knew from the get-go that we didn’t want to do many traditional things,” explained Ashleigh. “I didn’t wear the white dress, get married in a church, have 350 guests or to worry about chair covers. I think because we have our own house, we just couldn’t justify spending £20,000 on a wedding, which seems to be the norm in Northern Ireland!”Read more...

Jo and Tom wanted to take the bare bones of a traditional wedding and make it more fun. Their guests entertainment was their prime objective! They’d both been to weddings where there was a lot of waiting around which they found dull so ensured that from the beginning to the end of their day they had entertainment. Coupled with the idea that the day should reflect them as a couple, nothing more, nothing less - their grown-up circus themed wedding was born!Read more...

Dave and Jana are not massively into the concept of marriage, in fact Jana had said all her life that she would never get married! Fast forward to 2018 though, and after meeting Dave on Instagram and bonding over their love of cooking and tattoos, the couple knew they would stay together for the rest of their lives and found themselves wanting to express it somehow.Read more...
