Greek Mythology Inspired Elopement in the Dominican Republic

YOU GUYS! Stop everything because you need to see this incredible elopement like NOW. Married in January on Macao beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Masya and Sasha, who live in Russia, had a traditional Greek ceremony in the most non-traditional way!

Maysa explains her feelings for her newly minted husband: “We believe that God creates us in two halves. One half remains within us and the better half is disunited. The journey of our lives is to wander through continents, oceans, nationalities, and social status to reunite with our other half. I recognised Sasha as my better half who I had been searching all my life as soon we we met. The feeling came to me so instinctively that I knew he was my soul mate. I have never felt so happy before when I am with Sasha. We are so much like each other that you can say we are our own reflection.”

Forest Elopement with a Pregnant Bride!

What struck us most about the beauty of this styled shoot is just how rare it is to see pregnant brides featured in mainstream bridal media – for the most part we’re still being served these virginal images of slim brides dressed in white, and obviously, at Rock n Roll Bride, we ain’t down with that.

Planned or unplanned, finding out you’re going to be pregnant on your wedding day – albeit super exciting! – can also add a whole new level of stresses and emotions to the proceedings, which can only be exasperated when you’re searching for inspiration and finding zilch that’ll fit your circumstances. What will my dress fit like? Should I try to make myself look ‘less pregnant’? do I have to act differently?!

Glamorous Boho Las Vegas Elopement… with a Rock n Roll Flare!

Alex and Tamara actually met in high school, and although it took several years for their relationship to blossom (despite Alex’ regular attempts to take Tamara on a date!) once they finally reconnected they were inseparable, and soon found themselves creating a life together.

The laid back couple hadn’t actually planned to get married, instead they had just booked a fun getaway to Vegas – in fact Tamara actually thought that marriage was never on the cards for them. “I always thought if two people love each other why do they need to be legally bound to one another?” said Tamara. But after three years of living together, two pit bulls and two children later, they thought it would be the perfect way to complete their family unit. They always knew they wanted a stress-free, easy-going wedding so a Las Vegas elopement was perfect for them – carefree and super fun, just like them.

Laidback New York City Hall Elopement

Niamh and Jasper kept it real and romantic with their wedding, secretly eloping to New York to get married. After a run of deaths in both of their families, they decided they wanted to have something happy instead of sad to celebrate – and they created something beautiful, too.

“We had the standard New York City Hall ceremony,” they say, “which was actually really nice and much more intimate than we thought it could be, considering the style and speed and amount of weddings taking place all at the same time. The man who married us was called Angel Lopez, so we got married by an Angel in New York!”

Niamh’s wedding outfit was a baby blue House of Holland skirt, a Skate tee, and some lush  Jeremy Scott x Melissa mules, whilst Jasper wore Nigel Cabourn trousers, a Carhartt shirt and a Finisterre t-shirt. Just like their ceremony, it was relaxed and totally gorgeous!

After their ceremony at city hall, Niamh, Jasper and their two witnesses went for drinks on the roof at the Crown, wandered around Chinatown, and then had dinner at Prime Meats Brooklyn, fitting in some dreamy portraits beneath the Manhattan Bridge too.

Dinosaur and Science Themed Secluded Scottish Humanist Elopement

Natalie and Richard combined their stunning Scottish elopement with the naming ceremony for their son (and only guest) Hector Herbert. On the breathtaking and secluded beach at Crear, their dinosaur and science themed ceremony was intimate, personal and perfect!

“Our wedding was entirely about our family, the three of us. No one else was invited or knew about it, including our families, which made it feel really special!” Natalie and Richard explain, having driven 340 miles from Yorkshire to get to the beautiful beach at Crear. “The beach was totally secluded – no-one else in sight. We had our celebrant, Karen Dickson, a bagpiper and our photographers, and that was it!”

Documentary Inspired Las Vegas Elopement

There’s something about a Las Vegas wedding that I just can’t get enough of, and Tamara and Chris’ November wedding is no different. With a budget of £7500 they flew to Sin City from he UK and had the Rock n Roll elopement of their dreams.

They had their ceremony in the chapel at The Wynn. “Our wedding was an elopement done our way”, began the bride. “We wanted to make it all about us, travelling and seeing new places together and making amazing memories. The inspiration for our wedding was our photographer’s documentary style photography.”

The bride tried on lots of dresses, but it was only after she asked for Chris’ advice that she was finally able to find the dress of her dreams. “One of the most unique things about our wedding was that Chris chose my dress! I went to six different wedding dress shops on my own and with friends and did not go get that ‘wow’ from any of them other than the one I put a reserve on. The day before I was due to go back and pay for the rest of the dress and collect it, Chris was in the bath and I sat next to him on the floor and showed him all the photos of myself in all the different dresses I had tried on. The ones I thought he would like, he hated, and the ones I thought he would hate he loved! He said he really disliked the dress I had actually reserved so I decided to cancel it.”
