While all weddings are of course unique in their own way, there are a few themes here at Rock n Roll Bride that, behind the scenes, we’ve been calling nu-trad; you know, like nu-metal, but for weddings. The Limp Bizkit of matrimony, if you will. ‘Festival weddings’ being one of them. There’s a very good reason that things become popular - certain styles, like dusky foliage, painted leather jackets and dainty flower-crowns look beautiful together, so by all means there’s no harm rocking these things if you think they represent you.

Married on the bride's family's farm, Levon and Casey had a summer wedding that was full of their favourite things: Colour, dinosaurs and legalised marijuana! Casey designed and made so much for the wedding, even designed own dress. She created the succulent pattern, had it printed and then assembled the dress herself. She used the same patterned fabric for the wedding party's outfits and Levon's tie.

James and Bex go to Glastonbury every single year, but as there was no festival in 2018, they decided they would get married on the same weekend and host their own! The day was held at The Pheasantry Brewery, near their home in Nottinghamshire. As well as making their day feel perfect for them, their family and in particular their children ,were a really important part of the day. Between them they have five kids, two each from previous relationships and the youngest, Frank, together. They even painted Frank's buggy with the pyramid stage and portraits of Michael Eavis and Dave Grohl on it!

Vicky and Peter’s big day was inspired by their joint love of parties, festivals and raves - and combined with Vicky’s love of circuses, Alice in Wonderland and randomness, it made for a unique and fun-filled day! “Our main impetus was that everyone have a good time, instead of just watching us have a good time like you see at lots of wedding. We wanted to throw a crazy party that everyone could enjoy!” said Vicky.

Holly and Simon go to a lot of gigs and festivals together, so they wanted to incorporate this into their September wedding. Making things as colourful and fun as possible was their main priority - they wanted a festival-esque party with a carousel, cassettes, live music and fresh flowers. They were married at the incredible Preston Park in Kent which ticked all their boxes - it even had its own vintage carousel!

So I'm going to let you in on a little trade secret - every couple that we feature on Rock n Roll Bride get sent a questionnaire that they fill out to tell us more about their wedding. You usually get quite a good feel of the couple's character from what they say and from reading what Sanaa and David had to say - that they basically just wanted their wedding to be the most fun that any of their guests had ever had - we absolutely think they delivered...

Let's just start by talking about how OBSESSED I am with Hannah's bridal outfit. Inspired by queen of frills Molly Goddard and king of style Alexander McQueen, her dress was made by her super talented friend Nadia Tahari. There was a running theme for Hannah and Sam's wedding - to create something really relaxed and personal day which involved all of their family and friends. It's safe to say they smashed it.

Floral Rainbow Folk Festival Wedding

The wedding theme for Catherine and Tom's summer celebration was simply all their favourite things coming together into a colourful mish-mash. This translated to colourful flowers, homemade cakes, high street outfits and a fun-filled barn reception. They tied up lots of greenery from the woods with ribbons along one wall of the space and because the barn didn’t have lighting, they strung up loads of festoon and fairy lights for the evening.

Hold onto your handbags because my goodness do we have an utter beaut of a wedding for you today! Jody and Shane were married last summer and it was GLORIOUS. They met at an alternative bar in Camden, "Not the most romantic setting. I was climbing a pole into the ceiling tiles, he came over interested in what this multicoloured haired ape was doing!" the bride laughed. "We danced on some tables, kissed and exchanged numbers - Love at first sight you could say!"
