Kawaii Rainbow Disco Wedding Party

I really feel like a lot of you are going to love Jodie and Lee’s rainbow with a hint of kawaii wedding – for starters they transformed a village hall into the inside of a disco ball!

They had their wedding in two phases: admin and party. After posting their party invites at dawn (as they would announce that they were married), Jodie and Lee did the ‘admin’ bit at Manchester Registry Office. “Whilst people knew we were due to get married, they didn’t know when – we only had six close family members with us on that day,” said the bride.

And now for the party: “If I was a thing I would be an actual rainbow,” Jodie says, “so we opted for a full on RAINBOW theme with our personalities at the centre of it. My Pinterest board was absolute mayhem, full of bright and amazing ideas but I was struggling to reign it in. We enlisted the help of Apple Tree Events who helped to suggest a more focused approach. We opted for no flowers, instead choosing succulents with bright coloured heads that flower that were planted in mini Prissyem disco balls, placed with an array of animals from Painted Parade all wearing party hats. We used foils to decorate the walls and had a mix of pom pom chandeliers, pom pom garlands, tissue tassel garlands created by Sharelle from Apple Tree and huge colourful balloons dotted all around.”

A Bat Out of Hell Piss Up in a Brewery!

Kat and Chris have a little secret – they actually instantly disliked each other when they first met at work! That soon changed though as they co-managed a team together, they soon became the best of friends and the rest, as they say, is history.

While they were careful not to have a strict theme for their big day, they knew that they wanted it to reflect both their personalities – and their budget! Although they’re known best for black wardrobes, another plot twist – they knew they wanted their wedding to be a mish-mash of colours, prints and sparkles. As well as drawing inspiration from their love of music, with CD-sleeve style wedding invitations with a bespoke-Ramones style logo, they also wanted to include their beloved cat, who featured on the invites, and who’s portrait was pride of place at the top of the aisle. Throw in rocking a whole lot of polka-dots, some Star Wars and Frankenstein prints and their working-brewery location, these beer-lovers achieved a day that they could look back on and pinpoint exactly where they let their personalities shine through.

Colourful, Informal Wedding with a Navy Ombre Sequin Wedding Dress!

The inspiration for James and Cherry’s wedding was “doing it our way”, which for them meant colourful, informal and relaxed. They focused their attention to doing what they love – eating, drinking and dancing, and spent less time on the formal stuff. Doing the legal bit days before gave them the freedom for their day that they so craved. “We couldn’t even tell you the date we officially got married!” explained Cherry. “For us it was just a box ticking exercise – our wedding anniversary will always be the day we made a promise in front of our friends and family.”

Their day was held on a working farm, with an outdoor ceremony and reception in a marquee on the grounds right after. Cherry wore a navy ombre sequin dress from Phase Eight, with Monsoon shoes and beautiful dried flower bouquet and matching flower crown from Folkey Dokey. James’ outfit and their adorable blush pink flower girl outfits were from Next.

Glitter, Sequins & Mermaids: Colourful Club Tropicana Wedding in Ibiza

Alright, we need to talk about one of the greatest destination weddings I’ve probably ever seen: Cara and Tod’s insanely awesome, super colourful, don’t-give-a-fuck Ibiza wedding! The groom wore a silver sequin jacket and his groomsmen were in NEON PINK SHORT SUITS. I kid you not, you will never have seen a wedding quite like this one before. Oh and there were real life mermaids at their reception – NBD.

They split the wedding over two days, meaning they could have a whole weekend of fun in the sun with all their guests. “The legal ceremony was a traditional beach ceremony followed by a meal at El Chiringuito“, Cara explained, “but the after party/ reception was anything but traditional. The dress code to our guests was ‘Glitter, sequins, tropical, festival vibes’ – you can see by the photos what a fabulous effort everyone made!”

Body Positive Bridal Shoot with Sparkles, Glitter & Irregular Choice

It’s nearly New Year’s Eve, so let’s get into the alternative party spirit by injecting glitter, sparkles, rainbows and a bit of kawaii into your life with this head-turning shoot. And get your wish lists at the ready because you’ll be adding to them with no delay after seeing this.

The shoot’s first twinkle formed in the mind of Jo from The Couture Company after walking past the Irregular Choice store in Birmingham at least once a week. The shop has frosted pink glittery walls, flower installation, and a carousel (OMG!). They also did a few shots at Cereal Killer Café,

“This season, about nine out of ten brides arrived to their fittings carrying a box of goodness from Irregular Choice, so I thought it would be wonderful to collaborate on a shoot with them as they’re such a perfect complement to our crazy ass dresses and our brides’ quirky style. I met with manager Megan, who was a total babe, and she inspired me so much that I decided to invite the girls who work in the shop to be the models. Megan was a total star and totally rocked the shoot with her rainbow hair and badass curves. Lauren was so cute and curvy, with her cherubic face and blonde curls, making her perfect for our ‘Fleur’ and ‘Kawaii’ dresses. Then there was lovely Lily, who was our fiery fairy, and Claire the gorgeous brunette who rocked our ‘Poppy’ and ‘Nova’ star designs.”

Glitter, Unicorns & A New Year’s Day Nightclub Party!

It’s unusual for me to start a real wedding feature by sharing the video, but Maliya and Dimitris’ film, made by BeingThere Videography, is such a beauty that I can’t help myself. Put this full screen, turn it up loud and enjoy!

Any wedding where the bride rocks pastel pink hair, they have a unicorn wedding cake and they party in a nightclub is all good in my book. Doesn’t this look like the most fun EVER? They were legally married on Christmas Day and had their party on New Year’s Day!
