A Modern Marie Antoinette Meets Witchy NYC Wedding

Hosting their wedding day at a mansion on the Upper East Side of New York meant Mike and Midge couldn’t go halves with their wedding theme – and they did not disappoint! “The inspiration behind our wedding was a very modernised and stripped down version of the Marie Antoinette aesthetic,” said Midge. “Think classic yet decadent, with a lil’ bit of a witchy touch!”

Aside from dressing it with dozens of white roses, pillar candles and eucalyptus, the house needed little else in the way of decor to achieve their opulent, palatial vibe. Complete with chandeliers, sweeping staircases and original features, it was the perfect setting for their day.

Clean, Chic & Botanical Inspired Viennese Wedding

Josi and Max wanted their wedding day to be different from every other wedding that they and their guests had attended. They took inspiration from all the things they love – fashion, art, Star Wars, Guns ‘n’ Roses, classic Viennese culture and good coffee – to create a day that was more of a big party than an elegant gathering. They just wanted it to feel very true to them.

With a €20,000 budget, they DIY’d the elements that they could, and called in the expertise of professionals and friends and family elsewhere. In lieu of flowers, the bride and her mother dressed the venue with palms, ferns and exotic leaves bought at the flower market in Vienna. “I wanted to create a 1920s feeling,” explained Josi, “so we created the arrangements ourselves a couple of days before the wedding.”

Modern & Bohemian Jamaican Beach Elopement

Becca and Mark met on a random night out, and after connecting on Facebook a few days later, there hasn’t been a day since that they haven’t spoken to one another! Even when, shortly after meeting, Mark was stationed in Canada in the army, they still made it work – and Mark proposed on the day he returned to the UK.

Becca had always dreamed of being married on the beach, so despite being completely indecisive by her own admission, this was the one element of their day that was non-negotiable. They spoke to their families about them getting married abroad; unfortunately they were unable to make it, so the couple decided on a whim one day that they should just go ahead and book it anyway, and have a big party for all their friends and family on their return.

Modern & Colourful Meets Industrial & Laid-Back Spanish Wedding

Laura and Bruno met in their home-town of Los Angeles, but Laura always knew she’d head back to her birth country of Spain to get married. “We were well aware that planning a wedding is a difficult task, even more so when you’re thousands of miles away!” she explained. “So the first decision we made was to hire a planner. We were so worried about the organisation, we decided to dedicate a portion of our €28,000 budget to hiring a professional to take care of all the worrying for us.” They hired Lorena of Eventos Clandestine to help them pull their destination wedding off without a hitch.

They started with considering what type of day they’d like – a party where they were surrounded by family and friends, and something that would give off their energy and love of colour. Because of the distance, it was impossible for Laura and Bruno to even attempt any DIY projects for their day, so Lorena had full reign with decor.

Neon Tropics Meets Retro Havana on Friday 13th

When you think of a Friday 13th wedding you’d be forgiven for assuming it would likely be a spooky, horror or Halloween themed bash, but Elizabeth and Adam wanted to flip this idea on its head, instead opting for a wedding theme that represented their colourful personalities! The colour scheme primarily featured hot pink, lush tropical greens and metallic gold and oh my goodness does it look all kinds of wonderful!

They were married in April in Cincinnati. They chose Rhinegeist Brewery for both their ceremony and reception because they liked how they were able to curtain off one side of the room and have a cosy ceremony, then open it up and change all the decor and furniture for the reception and party. They they hired a day-of coordinator to do this for them during the drink’s reception so they could still enjoy this time with their guests.

Modern & Minimal Wedding with Pops of Orange & a Jumpsuit Wearing Bride!

Célie and Jonathan’s French wedding is so damn stylish I don’t even know where to begin! The were hitched in Strasbourg at the city hall, followed by a reception at Le Villa Mathis.

“We were inspired by industrial style and the idea that we wanted to keep it simple”, began the bride. “I also loved looking at Pinterest and Solange Knowles’ wedding really inspired my outfit!”

The bride’s jumpsuit came from ASOS and she wore it with orange shoes to match their modern colour scheme. All the reception decor was homemade. “All the industrial details that we handmade by ourselves. The fact that I wore a jumpsuit was pretty unique. Also, we got dressed and prepared in front of each other and did everything together. It was also really special that we were able to have our son with us. We got married after eight years together and, above all, we wanted to celebrate our love story.”
