The couple had two wedding days and two ceremonies – their more personal one at Skinnarviksparken park followed by cake, champagne and photos on July 2nd, and the legal one at city hall the day after.

An Intimate Festive Meets Tropical Elopement in Atlanta

It’s September which means it’s now perfectly acceptable to talk about Christmas, right!? If you are planning your own festive wedding this year then read on because Katrina and Aerion’s 2020 celebration is a masterclass in how a small Christmas celebration can be just as beautiful and special as one with all the trimmings!

Spending “as little as possible”, the couple planned their elopement with one goal in mind – to be married by the end of it! They explain, “We met when we were both out separately with friends at the only lesbian bar in Atlanta. Katrina had just been through a break up, saw Aerion from across the room, sent her friend away to get a drink and seized the opportunity then to approach her while she was dancing. We ended up dancing all night together.”

Tin and Bling Wedding at a Scout Hall

Hannah and Mike postponed their wedding by almost a year due to COVID, finally tying the knot on April 3rd 2021. Although they organised most of it last year so weren’t totally sure how much they spent, they know they wanted to keep the day affordable, with their only big cost being entertainment – in fact it was most of the budget! The groom works in the wedding industry so was able to call in favours and have friends make the food and cake, they didn’t bother with centrepieces or flowers and they asked their guests to bring their own drinks.

They day was held at 5th Brunswick Scout Hall and they hosted an afterparty at their house. Their theme was tin and bling – tin being the traditional gift for a ten year
anniversary (they’ve been together for a decade) “Everyone had to bring their drinks in tinnies because we were celebrating our ten (+1) year anniversary”, the bride explained.

An ‘Out of this World’ Movie Night Themed Wedding

Lindsey and Laura’s had an ‘out of this world movie night’ theme for their May 2019 wedding, They combined Lindsey’s love of space and astronomy with Laura’s love of media and the movies and came up with something truly unique. Each table was named after a film, they had a space themed cake and everything décor wise was homemade.

Lindsey wore a custom coloured dress dyed to match the aurora borealis colours and she covered her shoes in Swarovski crystals to sparkle like the stars. Laura’s suit was a purple with teal and pink check to match. They had their rings custom made by an independent jeweller and had each other’s finger prints engraved inside them.

A Newly Married Couple Take on Palm Springs, Smashing Gender Norms in the Process!

We get to publish a lot of cool shit on Rock n Roll Bride but this may be one of the coolest shoots we’ve ever seen. It’s the last official day of Pride Month (but y’all also know we celebrate Pride 365 over here) and so we are going out with a BANG.

This shoot was partly to celebrate Inga and Zingy’s wedding (they got married in a very low key way a few months ago), but mostly to create something that smashed gender stereotypes and promoted inclusive and authentic representation – in not only the wedding world, but gender non binary styling and fashion. HELL YES WE ARE HERE FOR IT.

Summer Garden Party Wedding at Elmore Court

Richard and Melvin went all out for their July 2018 wedding. They hired beautiful Elmore Court, a grade II listed mansion in Gloucestershire, as their venue. Then, 10 days later, they had a second party at a private members club in London (where they had their first date) for 250 people who couldn’t attend the main event!

“We had a summer wedding built around a garden party with an informal vibe and a strong musical presence”, the grooms told us. “We had opera singers in the service and a jazz band with friends (and one groom) singing during the afternoon garden party.”

Although they grew up thousands of miles apart – Melvin from the Bahamas, Richard from the UK – both their grandfathers were farmers and both sets of families had strong links to farming and the countryside. Although they now live in London, they both love gardens and the countryside so wanted to bring this into their day. Richard’s dad even grew some of the flowers which were used in the arrangements and the self-designed stationery had wildflowers on as a nod to the theme.
