Autumn Pumpkin Wonderland Meets Twisted Fairytale Wedding

Remember MySpace? Kerrie and James met on the site back in 2007 before moving on to MSN to chat for hours. Come 2010 they were a couple, and 2021 finally brought their wedding. With a dark, autumnal feel, the couple were keen to have an unusual wedding vibe, incorporating Kerrie’s three favourite things – Halloween, Disney and Rock n Roll.

Music was a big influence for the couple, and played a major part in their day. Kerrie explained, “Music for us as a couple is everything. For years our relationship involved going to A LOT of concerts and festivals and James is a musician and plays several instruments. I knew rock music had to be a huge part of our day. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls played when we walked in and our first dance was a softer version of Follow You by Bring Me The Horizon. Our wedding playlist was basically just a bunch of our favourite rock/emo songs we grew up listening to.”

Gender-Neutral Fairytale Wedding Inspiration

Photographer Annie Walter and bridal-wear designer Jay Whitestone loved the idea of creating a fairy-tale inspired styled shoot that focused on playing with gender roles. “Jay was inspired by her beautiful wife,” Annie told us, “and the want to bring an element of romance and historical drama to androgynous wedding attire. Her garments are suitable for any gender identity, as she believes that on one of the biggest days of your life, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than being you.” An ethos we can get on board with!

Shot in the Wild Garden of Sprowston Lodge near Norwich, Annie was inspired by an ancient apple tree, dreaming of decorating a set all around it. Florist Charlotte Staff filled the branches full of flowers, and then from there even more creatives collaborated with them for the project, with ceramic-mushroom centrepieces from Pale & Interesting, and a stag-horn crown from Mystic Magic Masquerade adding to the fairy-tale nature. The stars of the show were owls from Evie’s Owls

Celestial Fairy Tale Inspired Wedding with Five Guests

Jordan had a very specific vision for her and Colby’s October wedding – she wanted it to look and feel like a fairy tale. When they were looking for venues, St. Catherine’s in Fayetteville, Arkansas ticked all the boxes.

“I wanted to look like I had ran away through the woods to marry my love in the middle of a forest”, she told us. “I fell in love as soon as I saw St. Catherine’s. It is the quaintest little chapel; it can only fit up to 30 people inside. I wanted a witchy, celestial, fairy tale wedding, and that is exactly what I got.”

Fairytale Wedding in Belgium with Hints of Unicorn

Yoko and Koen met at the University of St Andrews in Scotland (fun fact, Yoko’s bridesmaid met her soon-to-be husband at the same time as he and Koen were friends!) which also inspired the fairytale theme of their wedding. The bride, from the US, and the groom, from Belgium, chose Castle Saint Hubert in Ronse (Koen’s hometown) as their venue.

The bride explains. “Koen and I both received our Master’s degree from the University of St Andrews which was where Prince William and Kate Middleton had also studied and met. To tease me, my friends would often ask if I had met MY Prince Charming so, it came naturally for us to have a fairytale themed wedding! We also incorporated unicorns, the national animal of Scotland, in a subtle way throughout the wedding such as in our wedding logo, Koen’s cufflinks and photobooth mask.”

A Dark Medieval Fairytale Inspired Elopement

On October 6th at The Lost Village of Dode in Kent, Natalie and Maxx acted as models for a Snow White and dark fairytale themed wedding shoot. What started as just a pretend handfasting ceremony ended up being really moving and emotional for the couple, so they decided to actually make the commitment for real!

“On the day, a joke turned into a look, which turned into a ‘Shall we?'”, explained Charlotte, who organised and styled the day. “And before we knew it an all kinds of beautiful actual handfasting took place. It was really special and very intimate, no planning just a big fat ‘Lets do this!’ After this, the whole shoot took on a party feel a proper celebration of these amazing people – It was like it was meant to be with every aspect of the styling suiting them perfectly.”

You are going to LOVE this wedding, we just know it! Just you wait til you get a load of all the decorations…!

The inspiration for the styling of Hollie and Dan’s big day all stemmed from Hollie’s My Big Day Bridal dress. “I’ve always been a bit of a goth girl at heart,” Hollie explained, “so I wanted our day to feel dark and dramatic but still be romantic and beautiful.”

The dress in question was a beautiful black tulle and floral embroidered overlay gown. Hollie paired it with a jewelled headpiece, laser cut shoes and a custom printed jacket by Princess Crocodile Designs, who also made a mini version for the flower girl!
