Heavy Metal Wedding by the Sea

Tahmina and Tom’s wedding was a rock and metal festival by the sea, held at the East Quay Venue in Whitstable. As they’d met at uni and hit it off straight away by sitting the corridor talking about music and sharing a bottle of Jack Daniels, it was only right that music played a huge part in their big day.

Right from the off guests knew they were in for some festival-style fun, with Wedfest wedding invites that looked like festival tickets and lanyards made up for the wedding info and order of the day. Music was a central part of their ceremony too, with Tahmina walking down the aisle to Wicked Game by HIM and them both walking back up with TNT by AC/DC. “Our ceremony was the bit we were least looking forward to,” Tahmina explains. “Despite the tattoos, coloured hair and loud mouth persona, I’m actually quite shy and suffer from crippling anxiety when I’m in an uncomfortable situation. The thought of a room full of people watching me walk down the aisle and stand there brought me out in hives, so we chose the quickest option given by Kent County Council – it was over within 10 mins!”

Radiate Positivity: A Colourful Bonnaroo Music Festival Inspired 4th July Wedding

Courtney and Jake had two weddings: The first at a music festival in Tennessee called Bonnaroo and the second home in a family member’s back garden for all their family and friends who hadn’t been able make it to the first. Their decor was fun and bright, definitely drawing upon the festival vibes, and Courtney made a lot of the decor herself.

“We fell in love with Bonnaroo a few years ago and HAD to get married there because of the vibe, music and people,” Courtney explains. “We wanted to bring a bit of the Bonnaroo Music Festival back home for our picnic-style wedding. We had a lot of decor that tied in with Bonnaroo’s saying ‘Radiate positivity’ . The combo of eclectic decor we had played a huge role in it being uniquely us.”

Free-Spirited Outdoor Wedding Style in Quebec

Serious wife goals and life goals from today’s shoot, a dreamy festival-inspired wedding ceremony in Mouton Village, a charming estate hidden in a valley in Québec, Canada. In fact we love this so much we’ve shared it twice! If you’ve picked up a copy of issue 23 you may recognise a few of these shots from Kat’s ‘Dear Kat’ letter!

Nestled in the countryside, Mouton Village is full of quirk and charm. Photographer Yanique Fillion wanted to use it as the location “to give the impression of being lost, and very far from civilisation. John and Natasha allowed us to capture their love, wrapped in sun and flowers. Who doesn’t want to get married after looking at these pictures?!”

And she has a point. The team made the most of the beautiful outdoors with a towering white geometric backdrop for the ceremony, adorned with light fabric that fluttered in the breeze. Using nature’s movements was a major inspiration for this shoot, as they decorated their reception with a parasol with floaty fabric that Natasha and John were lost in their own world underneath. Their long trestle table was prepared for an idyllic outdoorsy reception.

Colourful, Relaxed, Festival Inspired Wedding

Like many couples, Angela and Robin didn’t really have a theme in mind for their wedding – until they stepped back and realised what they had created once all their different elements came together! In the back of their minds, they knew that they wanted their wedding to have a fun, colourful, relaxed feeling that going to music and art festivals evokes, but just chose vendors, decorations and props that felt right to them, instead of to hit the theme.

Undoubtedly, a key element in creating the festival vibe was their venue – so choosing a glamping-come-wedding-venue site was a big part of their low-key theme! They chose Barnutopia, a piece of rural heaven in Shropshire, for both their wedding and reception venue celebration. Although Barnutopia is a registered wedding venue, they wanted their ceremony to be as personal to them as possible and felt having a friend marry them instead of a registrar would do just that, so they completed the legal part at a local register office the Monday before. “Although it was still a special moment, Saturday still felt like our true wedding day.” said Angela.
