Jenny and Steve were married at聽The Electric Cinema, the UKs oldest cinema, in Birmingham. “We’d have loved to have a festival style wedding”, said the bride. “We love going to festivals, seeing live music and I’m a big hippy at heart. However due to our budget and in the light of keeping things simple and as stress-free as possible, we had to ditch this idea.”

“It was really important to me that we handmade as much as we could. I’m pretty thrifty and I love making and creating! We are Brummies through and through and it made perfect sense to us to have hold our creative wedding in the heart of our fair city. Our wedding definitely had a 70s vintage vibe with my vintage dress, the flower crowns, sunflowers, bunting and camper van.”

DIY Back Garden Wedding Inspired by Africa

Emma and Leigh had their wedding in their own back garden. They wanted something relaxed and colourful, and inspired by some of their favourite places.

“The inspiration for our wedding grew over the few months we were engaged, we didn’t set out with an initial plan but knew we wanted it to feel relaxed, colourful and have a country element”, said Emma. “I lived in Kenya for a while and love the bright colours of African material. I bought some when I went to Uganda last year and began making bunting. A shop in Tetbury called Artique is an Aladdin cave of Indian artefacts. The owner showed us bright wall hangings and large umbrellas which they have used at Womad festival. We also wanted to bring in a country feel. I love sunflowers, so this also added to the expanding bright colour theme.”

The ceremony was held at Westonbirt Arboretum and the bride arrived in her Grandpa鈥檚 consul. “It was much more relaxed and personalised than we could have ever imagined”, she explained. “There were spontaneous fist pumps between Leigh and bridesmaids as they came down the aisle. We had lovely readings that were chosen by our friends and two special songs sung by our talented friends.”

Casual Casares Costa Celebration

Casual Casares Costa wedding (35)

Ana and Juanjo met through work. After dating for seven years they had their son, Mario, and seven years after that, on June 20th this year, they were married in聽Casares Costa, Spain.

“We didn’t have any particular theme for our wedding, we just wanted to be us and our guests to be themselves!”, Ana said. “We love music from the 60s and 70s and the Woodstock music festival so I guess that inspired us a bit. We also love American country music which was the inspiration for my outfit. The wedding was held in the South of Spain, overlooking the ocean. The beach location worked really well with this variety of styles. It really came together very well.”

Ana’s dress was handmade by her mother. The fabric had belonged to her for 30 years, and she’d kept it especially for her future wedding dress. “The wedding was such a special day”, she continued. “It was such a聽beautiful place on the beach where everybody I love could enjoy the great company, food, music and drinks! Everyone was so happy.聽All our family and friends were smiling, talking, singing and dancing. We felt the love of everybody there.”

Joe and Madison had $2000 to spend on their wedding, so they decided there was only one thing for it – VEGAS! They were married by Elvis at聽The Little Vegas Wedding Chapel and followed the ceremony with a fantastic photo shoot in the desert with their photographer聽Roderick Harrison.

“Joe and I met on a dating site a year and a half ago”, Madison told me. “We moved in together after six months, and over this past winter his parents told us they were moving away from where we all live in Arizona to the Isle of Man and they wanted us to join them! Being of the wanderlusting, nomadic variety we immediately said yes and began preparing to move!”

“We decided to get married before we left, and had the conversation about what kind of wedding we wanted. Since I wanted to hit Las Vegas one last time before we moved, we opted to save our cash and have a shotgun style elopement party instead of splurging on a traditional wedding. Since my better half is an outdoorsman and a big rock climber, we opted to spend the first two days of our trip camping, hiking, and climbing in the gorgeous Las Vegas Red Rock Desert.”

Bohemian Festival Of Love Wedding

Emma and聽Ofer wanted a wedding that was the perfect combination of a festival of love, with great music, good food and plenty of little details. The day was held in an olive grove in Tel Aviv.

“Above all we wanted our wedding to be comfy!”, explained the bride. “We wanted a wedding where our guests wouldn’t want to leave, where every corner you looked you would see a different cuddle puddle. We were ultimately the most inspired by our home and what we envision for our future home. We鈥檙e currently city dwellers aiming for a farm family one day. So we took an olive garden with nothing but trees and brought our living room (and much much more) with us!”

The reception setting was a mixture of boho chic and some native American Indian touches.聽Eclectic living room furnitures from Tel Aviv’s flea market along with cactus and aloe plants were laid out.

Surely you know what a kiss is?” she asked, aghast.聽“I shall know when you give it to me,” he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble.聽“Now,” said he, “shall I give you a kiss?” and she replied with a slight primness, “If you please.”
