With a gorgeous (but demanding) 15 month old daughter together, Jen and Pip needed their wedding to be relaxed, informal, and to fit in with their busy lives. With a £12,000 budget, they eschewed any traditions that didn’t suit them, and planned a day that was informal and fun for everyone.
They tied the knot at Lambeth Town Hall in Brixton with close family and friends present, after travelling to the ceremony together in a black London cab. “To be honest, it was quite rough and ready,” laughed Jen, “which we didn’t really mind but it was quite funny! During the ceremony, the registrar rattled through the her script at such lightning speed, she didn’t pause for breath so our friend could read the poem he’d spent the a whole month preparing!”
There is a special Rock n Roll Bride legendary status bestowed upon any couple that jump into a lagoon, in their full wedding get up, as part of their wedding celebrations. Dilena and Derek, who were married in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico did just that! And, yes, it’s was spectacular as it sounds. The drone photos though, I mean GODDAMN, this utter is photographic magic!
They wanted their March wedding to be themed around travel and their love of Mexico itself. “Derek and I love aviation and it was one of the first topics we talked about when we first met”, explained the bride. “Since then we try to travel someplace new each year and wanted to add this element to our wedding. We both love adventure, travel and experiences we wanted to create this for our guests and family.”

Jacqueline and Dougal’s elopement in Tulum was next level. I don’t often use the word ‘sexy’ because it usually makes me want to vom, but this wedding was undeniably sexy in a brilliant and powerful way, harnessing the earth’s natural energy for their traditional Mayan ceremony.
“Our theme was Mother Nature and essentially being tied to the earth and the universe.” Jacqueline explains. “It was held at the beautiful Cenote Azul by Playa Del Carmen, which was so dreamy and special. As soon as we arrived at the cenote, we were instantly calm and overwhelmed with joy and happiness. It’s such a spiritual place and there was so much good energy.”
