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.

Mystical, Glam Goth Winter Wedding

Kate and Chris were lucky enough to win their wedding though a giveaway! Together with their suppliers they then planned the wedding for a year. They wanted something a little bit mystical, gothic and glam and wanted to use lots of black as well as other darker colours. They had crystal balls, potion bottles and books as part of the décor. They also used a lot of black lace as well as vintage table wear.

The day began slowly and quietly with the couple getting ready together in their AirBnB which they rented for the weekend. They exchanged cards and small gifts as Kate’s son, Adrien, and niece, Quinn looked on.

Kate wore a v-neck dress with a leather jacket and went for a glam make-up look to match. Chris wore a simple all-black ensemble which really popped against the fresh layer of snow that had fallen earlier in the week.

Moody, California Coast Elopement

High-school sweethearts Erika and Garrett couldn’t let 2020 (and their 10-year anniversary) pass without at least one good thing happening, so when it got to December they decided to plan their elopement in just one week.

With a budget of $1,000, they just wanted to present their authentic selves on the day. They were originally due to get married at Seymour Marine Discovery Center in Santa Cruz, so as they loved their venue so much, decided to hold their elopement ceremony as close to it as they could.

Together with their ten guests, they walked to the ocean front bluff, for a simple ceremony performed by a mutual friend. Erika wore a dress from ASOS with a floral headband from Kochetova via Etsy, and her trusty Doc Martens. Garrett wore a Kenneth Cole suit from Macy’s

Erika’s bouquet ended up being completely free! “I’d attempted to get flowers from a local shop, but due to COVID they were all closed. I was left with little option than putting together my own bouquet with flowers from Whole Foods, and when I told them what it was for, the store gave them to me for free!”

A Secret Wedding with Dried Flowers and Natural Tones

Kirsty and Luke didn’t want lots of fuss for their January wedding, but an elopement wasn’t quite right either. They wanted their parents to be able to see them get married so they decided to have a tiny wedding with just their families. The day was literally just them, both sets of parents, three of their siblings and their 18-month old son.

Kirsty had such a vision for the day and wanted to theme the day around her Grace Loves Lace dress which she actually bought before they were even engaged because she loved it so much! To compliment this she opted for natural tones and dried flowers. Luckily, this idea worked perfectly in their venue, Moore and Moore Café, in Fremantle.

Love is in the Air: An Adventurous Elopement on a Highline!

High school sweethearts Jacob and Chelsea were raised in Austin, Texas. Having such a long term relationship and bond means they have never-ending trust… and what better way to celebrate that love and trust than with an elopement on a highline which they set up at Pace Bend Park.

“We met in high school but we really connected when we came across each other swimming in Barton Springs” Chelsea told us. “Jacob was slacklining across the springs and I asked if I could try and if Jacob had any pointers for me on how to stand up on the line. Afterwards, Jacob was forced to memorise my number because neither of us had phones on us at the time nor did we have anything to write with. The stakes were high. Our first date was a slackline picnic at nearby Zilker Park and the rest is history!”

Winter Beach Elopement with Celestial Elements and A Floral Decorated Jeep

MaryAnn and Braden got married on the beach at Cape Hatteras on December 9th 2020. It was an intimate elopement which was very much inspired by Rock n Roll Bride. “You guys inspired us so much while we were planning”, the bride told us. They also played homage to their love of adventure and the colours of the night’s sky. They used a lot of blue, purple and silver to give the look of both the starry night sky and the ocean, and used wintery textures in the florals.

Their wedding date was exactly four years from the anniversary of their first date and their first date definitely inspired the wedding. They started the day by driving to the beach together in their Jeep which the florist bride had decorated with flowers, “The Jeep is very special to me and has been in our family for years. Most of our first date took place driving around in the Jeep!”

“I am a florist so flowers are a huge part of my life! We specialise in unique and fun arrangements and it was so fun to get to do my own flowers after years of helping other brides bring their vision to life.”
