Geeky & Eclectic Feminist Wedding

Self-confessed geeky feminists, Bunty and Sophie wanted a low key, low cost wedding that was full of love and personal details. “We’re both quite geeky so we wanted to have that reflected in the style of the day”, Bunty explained. “We tried to incorporate science, plants, literature and my love of everything gold! We used Pinterest a lot to try budget ideas and of course Rock n Roll Bride!! We spent less than £5000 on the whole affair and we did everything ourselves with help from family and friends.”

Bunty found her Ronald Joyce dress second-hand on eBay for just £120 and Sophie’s suit came fro Ted Baker, the bridesmaids wore various outfits from high street stores. The cake was homemade by Sophie and they did their own invitations. They also didn’t have a band or DJ, opting for a DIY Spotify playlist, and they served Indian food instead of fancy catering.

A Spanish Superhero Themed Wedding with a Belfast Music Hall Reception

Jamie and Michael had two very different wedding celebrations –  a small family-focused event in the scorching heat in Malaga and a second a few weeks later, for all the rest of their friends and family back home in Belfast… in the rain! The two events couldn’t be more different (the bride even changed her hair colour between the two!) but both felt completely right for them. After all, isn’t that what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about?

“We wanted our wedding to include the everyone and everything we love and to show our personalities, we didn’t see the point in changing ourselves or pretending to be something we weren’t, just for one day”, began the bride. “We both always knew we wanted to get married abroad but hadn’t decided where. After a bit of research, we fell in love with Cortijo Rosa Blanca. I hated the thought of a white wedding, I was keen to have lots of colour in our day. I also hate the smell of fresh flowers, they make me sneeze! We also knew we wanted to include superheroes, we both love Marvel and DC and have seen every single superhero movie.”

Low Stress Woodland Fantasy Wedding for Under $2500

Mercedes and Roman are both big fans of sci-fi and fantasy gaming (think Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering) so they wanted their wedding to hint towards a fantasy theme, without being too over the top.

“We wanted to do something with a subtle fantasy theme,” explained Mercedes. “Our venue really allowed us to play with that theme and our photographer was more than happy to use that for inspiration in some of the edits of our photos. Rock n Roll Bride helped us realise that we could achieve our goal while sticking to a budget and maintaining a low stress experience through planning our wedding. All in all, the focus of our wedding was to be romantic, personal, and low stress to plan. We probably could have gone more all out with a fantasy theme, but instead chose to keep things simple.”

As a hint to their theme, Mercedes wore fantasy inspired accessories with her wedding dress. “I have a bit of an alternative appearance and style and chose to wear a light blue and lavender dress as well as Elven and fantasy inspired accessories. Roman has bit of an eclectic and vintage style and was happy that he wore something a bit different from a standard tuxedo.”

Doctor Who & Harry Potter Geeky Fandom Wedding

Choosing their favourite fantasy worlds for their wedding was the obvious theme choice for Jenn and Adam, who were married in Auckland, New Zealand in November. The bride loves Harry Potter, and the groom, Doctor Who!

“Our wedding was inspired by our interests”, said Jenn. “We wanted something unique to us and that’s how we decided on a geeky themed wedding. He’s a Whovian and I’m a Potterhead. We fully immersed our personalities into it rather than going for the usual wedding decorations.”

The bride and her bridesmaids carried paper flower bouquets made from Harry Potter and Doctor Who books, their seating chart was the wizarding world map and there was Doctor Who and Harry Potter bunting everywhere. The centrepieces were made from POP characters, paper confetti, candles and tiles. There where hand made golden snitches hanging from the ceiling. As you can see, they really went all-out with the theme!

“We refused to go the traditional route with anything”, said Lilly. “My main concern was that suppliers would try to bully me into having things I didn’t want. We were so lucky to find people who understood us though!”

Kat and Halo both have pretty unconventional looks, so their wedding was going to be anything but boring! They brought lots of geeky elements into their May wedding.

“We honestly couldn’t pick just one thing as our theme, so we chose all the nerdy things we enjoyed and made sure they had their place”, said the bride. “We were inspired by our daily lives, and our desire to always find things fun or happy.”

They wanted their wedding to feel like them, but they also included some traditions to keep their families happy. “I think our wedding was pretty different in how we incorporated some traditional aspects for our conservative families but did it in a way which stayed true to ourselves. I think we blended alternative and conventional pretty well!”
