Nature Inspired Pot Luck & DIY Wedding with the Groom in Dungarees!

If there’s one thing that unifies and defines what makes a wedding a ‘Rock n Roll Bride wedding’ it’s that the couple getting married have a day that perfectly reflects them, their relationship, their families and their love. This is so very true for Tara and Shags who were married at their family’s property which sits alongside Muddy Creek in Delta, PA.

The florist bride did all the decor and flower arrangements (the flowers were all handpicked from their own home), they had their guests bring a dish for the meal instead of a gift, and the groom wore dungarees without a shirt underneath as this was the very outfit he was wearing when they first met. Sweet or what!? Even the entertainment was effectively DIY with the band, Bustle & Bump, being made up of their friends.

“We met at a friends wedding five years ago”, began the bride. “We had known each other for years but exchanged numbers at the wedding. He was shirtless, wearing bib overalls. I asked him what he had going on underneath and he replied, ‘boxer briefs’. We have been together ever since.”

“Our wedding theme was nature and white lace. I grow up alongside the river and couldn’t think of getting married anywhere else. I collected vintage amber glass for over a year in preparation along with yellow or green tablecloths. I wanted the lighting to be mostly natural and wanted to line the tables with candles. My inspiration was the peace and beauty of nature.

Boho Hippy Festival Wedding with a Shamanic Ceremony

Hold onto your sequins ladies because you are going to LOVE Josie and John’s colourful extravaganza of a wedding! Married at Plush Tents Glamping in October, they had a day that perfectly reflected their passion for dressing up, festivals and throwing a damn good party!

“Autumn was chosen for the abundance of nature and the beautiful colours of the
changing season”, explained the bride. “The theme was inspired by a trip to the ‘Are You Experienced?’ exhibition at the V&A, a wonderful insight into the period of the late 60s and early 70s. The venue was chosen for its rustic style. Living simply and in connection with nature was a key theme of the hippy movement of that time and something dear to our hearts.”

Welcome to the Summer of Love (50 Years On!)

June 1967 was the beginning of the famous “Summer of Love” where the Monterey Pop Festival, with performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead, kicked off a time of of hope, optimism and real social revolution. Today, fifty years on (!) we’re celebrating with this fantastic sixties inspired shoot!

Photographer, Emma, told us all about her inspiration. “I’m a big fan of the 60s era and I really wanted to put something together to mark the 50th anniversary of this incredible period in our history. An alternative way of living was being explored and the emphasis was on travel, festivals, sex, drugs and, of course, Rock n Roll”

“The entire wedding was DIY”, explained the bride. “As a production designer, it was a dream to design the venue from scratch and with only our vision. It was beautiful. The bridal party spent the week before the ceremony using the site as an artist’s retreat to build structures, hand-paint signs, build sets, and curate the space. Every single item was hand selected, fabricated, altered and curated with meaning and intention.”

The July wedding was informal and influenced by the couple’s love of festivals. “We wanted the day to be colourful and happy!” said the Emma. “We wanted something that was personal and represented us as individuals, hence Andy’s suit. He likes to wear bright shirts. The festival theme reminded us of our favourite festival (Cropredy) with that laid back, chilled out feel.”

“The theme of our wedding reflected who we are”, said the bride. “Opening up our home and backyard to all our family and friends was important to us. We wanted everyone to feel the same vibes we feel when we are in our home. The inspiration was literally a vision all in my head that came together.”
