Laid Back, Colourful London Wedding in a Skate Park!

Suzanna and Jake have one of those happily ever after love stories from an American rom-com; they went to school together, and lived on the same street as kids, but didn’t start dating until a mutual friend introduced them when they were 19. They got taking because of a shared interest in Oreo cereal and Southern Comfort and the rest is history!

They took those shared interests in mind when it came to figuring out a theme for their October wedding; It was just shit we liked,” said Suzanna. “We lived in Mexico together when I was at uni so we took some inspiration from Mexican decorations. Other than that, we just picked things we loved and built a colourful celebration from that.”

Tattoo Artists’ Intimate Hackney Wedding with Group Photos Done in a Photo Booth!

There’s a hybrid wedding trend we’re seeing a lot these days – not quite an elopement, but definitely not a big wedding either. Jay and Brian knew this was what they wanted for their nuptials. They didn’t want to entirely run away and do it on their own, but they didn’t want to host a ton of people and drop a huge amount of money on it either. So, they found a comfortable mid-way point and married at Hackney Town Hall, followed by a meal at a local restaurant with just 14 guests (and their sausage dog, Duncan!)

“We didn’t really have a theme, we were just true to us”, Jay explained. “We honestly just wanted to celebrate our love and get married, we didn’t want a big wedding as we aren’t like that as people so we just tailored the entire thing to simply be a really nice day for everyone.”

Nothing about their wedding done in the traditional way. They didn’t want photos but they hired Costa Sisters who shoot and film (the images in this article are stills from the video) and they used a photo booth to get a shot to keep of everyone there. After the ceremony they went to the tattoo shop where they both work as artists, to cut a cake and get tattooed.

Simple & Fuss-Free London Pub Wedding

Jodie and Anthony, both Aussies, met in London on a dating app. They chose the city that brought them together for their low key wedding, with the intimate ceremony with just 10 of their friends at The Old Marylebone Town Hall followed by an informal larger gathering at the Pub on the Park in Hackney.

“This was our kind of elopement, with our pals here in London”, Jodie explained. “We plan to have a second bigger bash a few years down the line with our friends and family back in Australia. We wanted this one to feel very London and to capture the vibe of the city we’d made home together and all the friendships we’d shared our London experience with. We loved the contrast of the old-English swank of the Marylebone ceremony followed by the belly-up at one of our usual East London pubs.”

Pretty in Pink: A Tropical Meets Junk Food London Wedding

Lucie and Tommy’s London wedding was inspired by the bride’s love of pink, their mutual appreciation for the tropical aesthetic and the 1950s, and London, where the day took place. The bride arrived at Hackney Town Hall in a pink Cadillac, her bridal party all wore pink dresses from Coast and their reception decor was all shades from pastel to fuchsia and everything in between. They served their favourite junk food (burgers and Domino’s pizza!) and had one hell of a party!

They chose Core Clapton for their reception. a lovely blank canvas of a venue with a domed white ceiling and lots of space to get creative with the decorations. DIY wasn’t their forte, but they did pull the vision of the day together themselves.

Colourful Yet Casual King’s Road Celebration

Mike and Markus wanted an easy-going wedding. To them, that meant shunning a lot of tradition and having only friends there, no relatives at all. They chose Chelsea as their location as Markus’ parents got married there and because it’s one of the favourite neighbourhoods in London.

“It sounds like a cliché, but honestly I would say that all the people that came together on our day made our wedding what it was, “Mike explained. “Many of our guests had never met each other before or even spoke the same language (since they came from many different countries just to be with us). There was only 40 guests but 14 different languages all together and they all came from eight different countries! As we are an international couple, I would say that our wedding was an urban modern multicultural event and a reflection of the current society that we live in.”

Stress-Free & Sparkly Belgravia Pub Wedding

Ashlie and Steph wanted a stress and fuss-free pub wedding with minimal details and things to worry about! Although they made the table numbers, photo booth and favours themselves, they also didn’t stress over them. The most important thing was that they had a day that felt like them and that they were married by the end of it!

Their ceremony was held at Chelsea Old Town Hall followed by a reception at The Orange public house in Belgravia, where they actually had their very first date. “We wanted a wedding that had the focus on people and not details”, Ashlie began, “and i think we created that perfectly. Having vegan food and drink was also very important to me.”
