Hannah and Mike postponed their wedding by almost a year due to COVID, finally tying the knot on April 3rd 2021. Although they organised most of it last year so weren't totally sure how much they spent, they know they wanted to keep the day affordable, with their only big cost being entertainment - in fact it was most of the budget! The groom works in the wedding industry so was able to call in favours and have friends make the food and cake, they didn't bother with centrepieces or flowers and they asked their guests to bring their own drinks.

The couple found strength in their conviction to be able to plan a day that was based around them and their interests; in fact, the only traditional things they did were have speeches and cut the cake! “We were the inspiration for our wedding; we chose things that made us happy and just did things our way.”

There is SO MUCH you're going to love about Helen and Joel's bright and eclectic wedding... least of all the incredible burlesque (boy-lesque!) performance that was a total surprise for the bride and groom! They were inspired by all the things that love the most: Colour, Star Wars, beer and crafts, and they did oodles of DIY.

It’s 2019, so obviously you’re aware that styling your wedding no longer means having sleepless nights over what Auntie Maude will think of your choice of complementary bridesmaid dresses or meticulously matching the exact shade of sage green of your napkins to - well, anything. You’re fully aware that it’s a-okay to wear a black dress, rock a floral suit or dye your hair pink if you want to. I’d bet you’re constantly tagged in posts about unicorn fashion / rainbow cake / other slightly out-dated but once-alternative fashions by well-meaning but slightly clueless friends and family as the token ~Colourful One~.
