Inspired by the bride’s flame red hair, Robyn and Michael had a black and gold colour scheme with accents of burgundy for their November wedding. Held at Flora Farms, in Cabo, Mexico, they had a Jewish ceremony officiated by Michael’s stepmother, followed by a glamorously styled yet super informal outdoor reception for their 60 guests,
“The day flew by and I enjoyed every second of it”, Robyn writes. “I could not have asked for a better wedding planner. Gaby and I clicked from the minute we first spoke and she understood our vision and turned it into everything I wanted and more. She was our biggest expense but 100% worth every penny. She was my Xanax throughout the entire process, there for me on the day and even when the night was over, she knew exactly what Michael and I needed. It was meant to be that Gaby came into my life, she felt more like a bridesmaid than my planner.”
Megan and Mike wanted a glamorous boho theme, with a feeling of dreamy freedom and elements of a fairytale. They hired wedding planner AMV Weddings to help them bring together their theme and vision and also coordinate on the day.
Their favourite part of the day was their outdoor ceremony. Their florist, Desiree Dean Designs, made them a beautiful arch to get married under and the aisle was strewn with white rose petals. Flowers were one of their biggest expenses but they wanted both the ceremony and reception spaces to feel very lush and green.
“I remember standing at the start of the aisle, staring at Mike, and saying to my dad ‘is this seriously real life right now?'”, Megan said. “I felt like I was in a dream. Everyone we loved was at the same place and watching me marry the man I love. it was an insane feeling. We shared vows that made our ceremony super personal. I cried and we laughed, It couldn’t have been more perfect.”
Can we PLEASE take a moment to mentally prepare ourselves for what we’re about to see because HOLY SMOKES, this wedding is eeeevvverrryyyything!
Melissa and Luke got legally married at a London register office, then flew to Burning Man for a second ceremony and finally they planned an epic three-day wedding celebration on the groom’s birthday at the incredible Aynhoe Park!
They chose Aynhoe Park for “its take-your-breath-away effect and fantastical interior”, which includes Murano chandeliers and a very impressive collection of taxidermy (including a unicorn!) After two nights here they continued the celebrations at Soho Farmhouse for a weekend of rest and relaxation, and to tie in to their first meeting at another Soho House property.
Please excuse me for one second while I FREAK OUT over this wedding. Seph and Jason completely epitomise what Rock n Roll Bride is all about, and no it doesn’t matter one little bit that there’s no ‘bride’ in sight! The single thing that makes this wedding awesome AF is them… Oh and the fact that Seph wore goddamn crystal embellished stilettos for the day and looked way better in them than most women I know… Oh and all the Mean Girls references. OK OK there are many, many things that make this wedding slay my entire existence and I KNOW you’re going to love it to.
Seph and Jason met on a blind date… but it wasn’t actually their date at all! “I was on a blind date at a midnight showering of a Harry Potter movie… with someone else!”, laughed Seph. “The guy I was with knew Jason and said hi to him and they talked for a bit. The next day I got a message on Myspace (yes that’s how long ago this was) from Jason. We started talking then we went to the movies for our first date. Many movies later he asked me to marry him. We had our first non-legal wedding on Halloween in 2009 at a movie theatre in my hometown. Then in 2015 when it became legal for us to get married we decided we wanted to do it again, for real this time.”
It may be averaging 30 °C outside at the moment, but autumn is coming soon my friends! Don’t get me wrong, I adore the summer, but it’s around this time of year where I also begin to hanker after knitted sweaters, bonfires and all the white hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows please and thank you).
If you’ve been feeling the same then you’re going to love gazing longingly over Brittney and Trav’s Pennsylvania wedding. Using autumnal colours in their flowers and the bridal party attire, and even having fresh donuts made by grandma for dessert, there’s SO much to love in this early November wedding.
“Our theme was boho glam”, explained the bride. Our inspiration was wanting to reflect our very own personalities and styles. All of the details were us to a T! It all started with my stunning bouquet of flowers. We had the groomsmen in the most amazing burgundy coloured suits. It’s uncommon for the men to be the more extreme ones in their attire choices, but these guys went all out!”
The ceremony was officiated by Drena, a family friend. Brittany wrote the entire script herself, wanting to make it as personal as possible. “Our ceremony was not traditional at all. It was short and sweet and to the point. It expressed our love perfectly.”
Alex and Tamara actually met in high school, and although it took several years for their relationship to blossom (despite Alex’ regular attempts to take Tamara on a date!) once they finally reconnected they were inseparable, and soon found themselves creating a life together.
The laid back couple hadn’t actually planned to get married, instead they had just booked a fun getaway to Vegas – in fact Tamara actually thought that marriage was never on the cards for them. “I always thought if two people love each other why do they need to be legally bound to one another?” said Tamara. But after three years of living together, two pit bulls and two children later, they thought it would be the perfect way to complete their family unit. They always knew they wanted a stress-free, easy-going wedding so a Las Vegas elopement was perfect for them – carefree and super fun, just like them.
