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.”

Breathtaking Enchanted Forest Themed Wedding with Skulls, Dinosaurs & Apothecary Vibes

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!

A Rustic, Steampunk, Fairytale Wedding in Germany

As fantasy cosplayers in their spare time, there was no doubt in their minds that Joana and Maria’s wedding would be a fantastical fairytale! Drawing inspiration from all different areas – their participation in medieval festivals, their love of steampunk and all things rustic and fairytales; they didn’t want to be constrained by one particular genre so they just chose all the things they love.

They brought their vision to life by DIYing practically everything for their big day – from their stationery to their ceremony and reception decor, they even made their own outfits, painstakingly keeping them secret from one another and stealing moments to sew when the other one was out.

“It made it quite complicated and stressful at times, but sewing our own outfits was my favourite part of planning the wedding,” said Maria. “We really wanted to surprise each other and have the first moment we saw each other’s outfits at the ceremony.”

Brothers Grimm Fairytale Meets Punk Wedding in Belfast

Orla and Chris’ wedding is a dark and twisted fairytale in the best kind of way. Inspired by Brothers Grimm, their big day was moody and ethereal, and totally beautiful!

“The inspiration for our wedding was dark fairytales, enchanted forests and woodlands,” Orla explains. “I was originally basing it on Brothers Grimm, but it ended up quite similar to the Once Upon a Time tv show!” After a spiritualist ceremony performed by Belfast Spiritualist Church, including a willow stick ceremony to make their bond everlasting, they moved through to their reception, also hosted in Malone House.

Their flowers were heavily influenced by woodlands, with a lot of foliage and thistle as well as some beautiful blooms in moody jewel tones, and their tables were decorated with icy sequin tablecloths as well as lots of curated curios, including gingerbread houses and skeletal snow globes. They also had ice sculptures around the room, including a glass slipper, a frozen rose, and a dragon with an inbuilt drinks flume. Their wedding favours were little bottles of Buckfast with love potion labels, and Orla made an enticing candy cart from an old vintage tea trolley. Not to mention Barbie Bakes Cake‘s creation!
