Pink & Red Brisbane Wedding with Sparkles & Dinosaurs

After bonding over their love of alternative music and good coffee, Nicola and Carl married in January 2022 at The Refinery in Brisbane. “I had to do a big search on Pinterest to figure out what styles I liked,” Nicola told us, “After saving a little bit of everything, I started to narrow in on nice bright pinks and reds.”

“There was a very subtle dinosaur element to the wedding too. I’m a bit of a fan of dinosaurs (with a couple of tattoos to prove my commitment) and after seeing a wedding on Pinterest with dinosaur candle holders, I spoke with our planner Danielle at Til Death Events about maybe including some just subtly snuck in on the tables.”

If Jurassic Park Was a Theme Park Full of Cats on Halloween

Julie and Peter’s October 31st wedding was held at a park, local to their home. They used the park’s nature centre (which is actually where they first met. The bride was giving a talk about the black market wildlife trade in Southeast Asia) to host their food and drinks, but the majority of the day was outside. Their wedding date was also four years to the day of their first official date.

“Our wedding theme was if Jurassic Park was a theme park full of cats on Halloween”, the bride told us. “We also brought our values of justice and equity into the
wedding in a variety of ways. It was important that we did not reproduce common
patriarchal wedding norms so that our marriage got off on an equitable footing. We tried to weave messages of love and equity, both explicit and implicit, throughout every aspect of our ceremony and reception.”

Psychedelic Formal Festival Wedding with 3D Printed Neon Dinosaurs!

Married on the bride’s family’s farm, Levon and Casey had a summer wedding that was full of their favourite things: Colour, dinosaurs and legalised marijuana! Casey designed and made so much for the wedding, even designed own dress. She created the succulent pattern, had it printed and then assembled the dress herself. She used the same patterned fabric for the wedding party’s outfits and Levon’s tie.

“We were inspired by camping, electronic music culture, psychedelia, technology, and neo-paganism for our wedding”, began Casey. ” We both felt like the way to make the wedding as sincere and meaningful as possible was to make ourselves as present in the ceremony, creation, and celebration as possible, so that everyone would be able to recognise us, see how serious we were, and how important it was to both of us.”

Colourful Sci-Fi & Bookish Themed Wedding with Dinosaurs & Back to the Future!

Lara and Alistair met on the internet in 2011. Although they’d lived in the same town forever, they didn’t have any mutual friends, so they’re very grateful to the free dating site they both took a punt on!

When it came to planning their day, Lara’s main source of inspo for the eighteen months in the lead up was none other than Rock n Roll Bride, of course! “I spent hours trawling through your site and magazine, completely in awe of how unashamedly themselves your previous couples were,” Lara said. “Rock n Roll Bride made it crystal clear to us that it was OK for us to have the day we wanted, and not one that everyone else expects you to have!”

DIY Circus Tent Wedding with Dinosaurs and Hedgehogs!

Wedding with Dinosaurs, Inflatable Cacti, Hedgehogs and Hoovers (36)

Katie and Jeff met at school and have been together since they were 15! They were married in August and described their wedding theme as ‘complete randomness’. They were inspired by their love of music so Jeff wore a yellow jacket as a tribute to Queen, and Katie had their favourite Foo Fighters song on her Crown and Glory veil. They also asked all their guests to request a song on their RSVPs so that everyone would enjoy the music on the day.

The couple got married in Jeff’s family home, Wingfield Hall. “We took a lot of time to get Jeff’s parent’s house registered for marriages so we could have it at his family home”, began Katie. “The ceremony was everything we wanted it to be. We got married under an archway in the middle of the room so it felt really intimate and all the guests were close to us. We wrote our own vows that mentioned our cat Frank and our favourite song lyrics and had my brother give a reading (which made everyone cry).”

Lynette and James’ wedding was quintessentially ‘them’. They were married with just the bride’s brother, the groom’s mum and their two children as guests. Their son wore a dragon onesie and their daughter fluffy ears and a tail. The bride wore leopard print leggings under her dress. After their short ceremony they all went to a local restaurant for lunch together.

“Our wedding was unplanned, smiley, full of love and dinosaurs!” said Lynette. “We just wanted everyone to enjoy the day and be happy. We spent less than £500 too. We were pretty impressed with ourselves. We are not materialistic people and the whole day was just about us and the fact we were getting married. We just invited the children and James’ mum. We just wanted minimum fuss and the whole day to be about us, our love and getting married. We wanted the day to be special to us and to only have each other and a couple of guests made it a much more intimate and special day in our eyes. Plus, now we can spend the money we saved on travelling and adventures!”

Robot & Dinosaur Wedding on a Farm

robot and dino wedding (31)

Stephanie and Jeff planned their wedding at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms in less than a month. Incredibly, even with such a short time-frame they managed to do nearly everything themselves!

“In the vision of creating a truly personal day, there was quite a bit of DIY”, explained the bride. “We did the invitations, the place cards, the table numbers, the table runners, the flower arrangements, the gold vases, the bouquets and the boutonnières. We also spray painted the robot and dinosaur table décor, made the ribbon wands for the ceremony, and did all the graphic design.”

The ceremony was held outside the front of the main building an was officiated by two family members – Stephanie’s aunt and Jeff’s cousin. “With the huge help of my aunt, the three of us created a ceremony that we genuinely believed in and cared about”, she continued. “Jeff and I wrote our vows together the night before our wedding and recited the same ones; it was important for us to create those together.”

Dinosaurs and Gold Glitter Wedding

Engagement shoot, wedding photographer UK, London.

Sarah-Lily and Jon wanted a fun wedding that they’d created themselves. Their main theme was dinosaurs and glitter and all their family and friends pitched in to help.

“We wanted our wedding to be relaxed”, the bride told me. “We’re both massive dinosaur fans (our first date was to the Natural History Museum!) so we also wanted to incorporate that into it. We also love festivals and summer fairs, so that was another big inspiration.”

“All the dinosaur decorations were hand-glittered”, she continued. “There were 52 of them! My bridesmaids helped me glitter them plus 50 jam jars which were filled with our favourite sweets for people could munch on throughout the day. Jon made over 60 origami T-Rex’s and my mum made over 80 metres of bunting, as well as our wedding cake and all the gingerbread favours! My dad made the frame for the table plan. Our guest book was combined with the photo booth, so guests took a picture of themselves using the Polaroid camera that we got off of eBay and then hung on a tree, it was great!”

Dinosaur Glitter Explosion Wedding

http://camerahannah.blogspot.co.uk

As a wedding blogger, being submitted a wedding described as a “dino glitter explosion” is a red letter day. Rob and Lucy’s Derby wedding might have just leapt up to being one of my all time favourites ever! They were legally married in a registry office but had an emotional and beautiful blessing at their reception at Shardlow Village Hall.

“We were inspired by our parents weddings”, said the bride. “My folks got engaged on a Tuesday and got married two days later with flowers from the garden and a chippy tea for the family, and Rob’s parents took only two months to plan their homespun wedding; they inspired us to just crack on with it! Most people spend over a year planning their wedding, but because we had just four months, only the most important things got done, and the rest of the pomp and circumstance just didn’t happen. It left us free to do exactly what we wanted.”

Quirky Dinosaur Themed Wedding in South Africa: Keda & Wesley

Gomez_Fiona Clair Photography-184

When I’m presented with a wedding where the bride rocks lace mouse ears, carries a rainbow lollipop in place of a bouquet, and her bridesmaids wear adorable little antler headbands, it’s going to be pretty much impossible for me to turn down featuring it. Have you ever seen so much cuteness all in one place?! The wedding took place at Rockhaven Farm in South Africa.

“Right from the start we wanted everyone to be relaxed and to have fun, and this idea influenced all the decisions we made for the wedding”, wrote the bride. “We had no seating plan, we had popcorn for guests to snack on during the reception, and the food was canapés served throughout the evening,. We wanted people to be free to move around and talk to more than the people sitting on either side of themselves.”

Dinosaur Engagement Shoot

Dino Engagemnt_Autumn BeuryHML-94

There’s a mini golf course on Panama City Beach, Florida, unlike all others… it’s full of dinosaurs!  Shelly and David wanted somewhere unique to shoot their engagement photos and this was the perfect place. A little bit unusual but totally beautiful to boot!

“They both are super out-going and full of personality”, wrote their photographer Autumn. “So the two combined were a perfect match. I really wanted to portray them as a couple, hone in on their relationship, emotions, and love for one another. For once, I didn’t do much stylizing for this shoot, because the location was already enough, I just had to get them there and in front of the camera. I was very excited about this shoot plus, they knew all these secret spots at the golf course for getting the best photos!”
