Soft & Girly Self-Shot Elopement with a Rock n Roll Edge

With a budget of £2000, a guest list of four (including their two Dachshunds!) and the bride’s own talents as a wedding photographer, Samantha and Antoni set to planning their January elopement. Samantha took many of the photos herself, but The Wedding Bee (the groom’s sister!) snapped the stuff that she couldn’t. Samantha actually loved that she got to edit her own wedding photos too!

The bride’s dress came from ASOS, her jacket was customised by Niamh Designs and Kathryn’s Flower Barn did the flowers. They wanted their day to have a rock ‘n’ roll twist but to still feel girly and vintage inspired.

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.”

Patrón, Puppies and a Dip Dyed Dress

Sian and Neil’s wedding featured all the things they love: Tequila, their dogs and the importance they put on their relationship. With a groom that always said he never wanted to get married, when he finally surprised his bride and asked her to be his wife, they knew the only way they were going to do it was entirely on their own terms. That meant ignoring tradition wherever possible.

They were hitched in June at Bysshe Court Barn in Surrey, and because they had their legal register office ceremony a few days before, they had complete freedom when it came to the day. “At the legal wedding we just had my little brother and Neil’s sister as our two witnesses”, Sian explained. “It was very low key and we went for coffee afterwards. We didn’t recognise this as our wedding day, we did it so that it gave us the freedom to do our actual wedding day exactly how we wanted it. We didn’t have to follow any rules or tradition. Therefor we found a celebrant to perform our ceremony in front of all our friends and family on our big day.”

As self-confessed animal lovers, there was one non-negotiable when it came to Maja and Ryan choosing their wedding venue; whether or not they allowed dogs. The Silent Woman Inn in Dorset is nestled within the tranquil Wareham Forest, which really set the tone for their laid back day. 

They were delighted to be able to involve their beloved pup Mojito in their wedding – they had always planned to bring their first dog, Mania, with them too, but sadly she passed away a month before. They were able to include her memory, though, with Maja attaching Mania’s name tag to her bouquet and using it as her something blue.

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.”
