Intimate & Sparkly Desert Vow Renewal

Karina and Kellard met at a Halloween party in 2005 and were married in the summer of 2012. Five years later, on their wedding anniversary, they decided to renew their vows in Las Vegas.

The ceremony (unfortunately not photographed) took place in Sloan, NV, situated 18 miles southwest of Las Vegas. “This was our 5 year anniversary vow renewal”, said the bride. “Our inspiration was Vegas, the desert and doing something Intimate and sexy.”

“On our wedding day my husband promised me that he would love me until the end of his days, So I asked that he and I share new vows every five years. I love to be dramatic, fun and unique! He plays along because he loves seeing me happy and I can’t thank him enough.”

Karina designed her own dress and had it made by First Impression Sewing and Alterations. “My dress was one of the most unique things about our renewal. I designed it myself.”

A Glastonbury Handfasting & A Las Vegas Elopement

Gaia and Calum didn’t just have one awesome wedding, they had two! The first was at their beloved Glastonbury in the gorgeous tipi field, and the second in Las Vegas at A Wedding Chapel: Two very Rock n Roll places!

Everything was a romantic whirlwind and the couple just went with the flow. The bride said, “We didn’t have a theme, we just wanted to have something special in our favourite place (Glastonbury), and an elopement adventure! We’d been engaged for a year and a half, together for six, and we just decided we didn’t want to wait any longer to be married. It was very last minute – we only started planning it in February and we got married in July!”

It must have felt like one long summer party as the ceremonies were only about ten days apart. Gaia planned the Glastonbury ceremony and Calum was on Las Vegas duty.

The bride said of the planning, “With Glastonbury, we were trying to do it as cheaply as possibly as we had spent most of our money on the Las Vegas wedding. The Glastonbury ceremony was quite last minute as we didn’t know if we would have re-sale tickets until the end of April! We had to wait until we knew for sure to make arrangements, so we really only had two months to organise it. We spent around £350 in total on this, not including the festival tickets. With Las Vegas, it cost £5000 including rings, flights, 5* hotel, hire car, ceremony, photographer, dress, suit, flowers, eight nights’ stay and a holiday!”

Desert Photos, Hot Dogs & The Oldest Bar in Vegas

Sarah and Olie’s wedding can best be described as old school Las Vegas. They both love Downtown and the history of Vegas so wanted to capture that feeling on their day. They didn’t keep to any strict plans, guest lists or time frames…they wanted to just go with the flow!

“We had been to Vegas on two other occasions and knew that if we where ever to get married it would have to be there,” explained Sarah. “Our main goal was to have as much fun as possible and this was the most unplanned planned wedding!”

“We had a vague idea of what we wanted, picked dates, booked flights, rooms and everything else was fluid. Our wedding was open for anyone to attend and we made it up as we went along. This included changing Elvis’s songs once we arrived at the chapel (to something more upbeat so we could all have a dance) and changing our wedding reception venue last minute! We just went with the flow and everything was perfect.”

Before the wedding they met with their photographer, Ashley Marie Myers, for a pre-wedding photo shoot. “Las Vegas was experiencing a heat wave and the temperature was reaching 117 degrees!” she explained. “Ashley was amazing and came equipped with ice cold water and beer. We would jump out of the car, snap a few pictures on what felt like the surface of Mars, and quickly dive back into the air conditioned car again!”

Tacos & Tattoos: A Quickie Yet Fabulous Las Vegas Elopement

Heather and Riley are met in Afghanistan in 2013 when they were both deployed to Kandahar from their respective countries (Riley from Australia and Heather from the US). At the time of their wedding Riley was still deployed in Iraq and flew out to Vegas for their ceremony! He then had to return to Iraq immediately after their honeymoon, just two weeks later. They wanted their wedding to be a bit of old Hollywood glam mixed with some of their favourite things including tacos, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Batman and tattoos!

“The inspiration for our wedding was everything that we love,” explained Heather. “We are foodies and my favourite food is tacos, hence our reception at the two story Taco Bell Cantina/Club on the strip! We had accessories with touches of characters we love such as Harley Quinn, the Joker and Batman. We got matching tattoos to commemorate our special day and I carried a paper flower bouquet which was custom created to tell our love story. Each flower was made of paper that has some significance; my favourite bible verse, lyrics from the song I walked down the aisle too, our country’s flags, Batman and Joker comic book, Wonder Woman comic book, Star Wars characters, a ‘junk food’ flower (that had tacos, pizza, burgers, and fries on it), and flowers made of maps of important locations to us. My bouquet is my most favourite accessory from the whole day!”

A December Vegas Elopement with a Glittery Sequin Dress

Is there any wedding more Rock n Roll Bride than a Vegas elopement and a silver sequin dress? Getting married in December with a £6000 budget, Nic and Loz decided Sin City was the perfect spot for them. The ceremony was held at The Little White Wedding Chapel and afterwards they wandered around Fremont Street, Seven Magic Mountains, the Vegas Sign and Caesars Palace for photos. They ended the night with a 30 inch pizza from Pin Up Pizza which they ate back in their hotel room.

“We met on a night out at university”, began the bride. “We had mutual friends and got chatting, he was grumpy but I liked his style. We hung out quite a lot for a while until uni ended and we moved to different places and lost touch. After four years we got in touch again, started chatting on the phone, met up and then got together! He’s cheered up a bit since then…”

A Las Vegas Wedding with a Roller Skating Bride & A Hotel Room Pizza Party Reception

Maddie and Matt wanted to go away to get married to picked Las Vegas followed by a two week honeymoon in Nevada and California. The bride, who did roller derby, met her BMX-loving groom at a skate park and although they didn’t really care about having too much of a theme, they wanted the day to reflect both of their interests.

The bride wore a bohemian inspired dress from Blush Fashion and roller skates which she customised herself! The groom also customised a BMX for the day which he also rode down the aisle! “Not everyone rolls down the aisle on skates and on a BMX I guess”, laughed the bride. “Our ceremony was at The Artisan hotel and pretty short and sweet. My dad drove me to the ceremony in a Porsche and Matt was waiting nervously inside with our friends an family. The thing I was most nervous about was that I may forget how to skate and fall over or get my dress caught up in my wheels! Or that the online livestream wouldn’t work and people at home who had stayed up late to watch wouldn’t be able to tune in! All went without a hitch though and our officiant, Chad, gave us a lovely ceremony.”
