Colourful Mexican (Second) Wedding

Jou and Fer were officially married in Guatemala in 2015 – in fact we featured their amazing steampunk wedding on this very blog! However, since the bride is Mexican, they decided they wanted to have a second, religious celebration as well. Their theme was simply ‘Mexico’.

This second wedding took place in July at Hotel La Cañadita. “We had a lot of friends playing a important roles in this day”, said Jou. “Apart from the caterers and the DJ, everyone who provided services were all friends. This made it very special for us.”

The ceremony was held in a beautiful garden. “It was rainy season but we were lucky that it was a sunny day. I made a funny mistake during the vows – I said ‘I take you as my wife’ rather than husband and everyone laughed before I’d even realised what I’d said. It’s impossible to pick just one favourite moment from the day but the ceremony was pretty special. I also loved when my dad cried while I danced with him. Fernando said his favourite part was that everyone got really drunk!”

Colourful & Contemporary Brunch Wedding in Austin

Tara and Rick’s colourful Austin wedding was held at Prospect House, a beautiful blank canvas of a venue that allowed them to pretty much do whatever they wanted. They opted for a bohemian yet contemporary, avant-garde yet brightly colourful celebration.

“We were inspired by the environment and location of the wedding venue plus the artistic talents of our vendors”, said the bride. “Inspiration included the landscape of Dripping Springs, natural light, the architecture of Prospect House and May Day English traditions. We didn’t follow any rules, we chose what appealed to us starting from what we wore, decorations, food, music and the structure of the day.”

“The event theme reflected our personalities and aesthetics from start to finish. My husband and I are artists and we curated this event with the same passion as we do with any of our creative projects. We picked vendors who are artists themselves. We trusted their vision and wanted them to utilise their artistic talents and abilities to the fullest. It was also a daytime/ brunch event, which created an informal, fun and light atmosphere. Having a daytime event not only saved us money but brunch is our favourite thing to do so it suited us perfectly!”

Mismatched Farm Wedding with Llamas, Sheep and Ducks!

The Wellbeing Farm in Lancashire was the perfect venue for Christie and Kurt’s informal wedding. They didn’t have a colour scheme because they wanted something more organic and mismatched. “We tried not to have a proper theme as we thought more mismatched would be better”, said the bride. “However a ‘no theme’ theme was pretty impossible because when you start buying you naturally gravitate towards similar things.”

The one thing the bride did want though, was lots and lots of flowers. “We are both green-fingered and used to have our own allotment so the flowers were important to us. The Flower Farm were able to provide us with absolutely beautiful wildflowers, most of which they had grown themselves. We wanted flowers everywhere so there were fresh local flowers in every possible vessel including tea cups, tins, jam jars, milk bottles and milk churns. My mum and dad had a production line going. My dad would eat a tin of beans every day and my mum decorated them with lace, twine and wooden hearts for us to use as flower arrangements!”

Secret Meadow Wedding in Slovenia with the Bride in Pink

Petra and Marijan wanted their wedding to be simple, with a vintage theme, and to be out in nature. They also organised and made everything for the wedding themselves.

“I was building ideas and getting inspiration from Pinterest for a year before the wedding,” began Petra. “However, once we started actually planning the wedding properly it all happened so fast with no delays; we made and organised everything in just two months!”

Their budget was €7000 and the couple did a lot of DIY projects for their wedding. “We made everything by ourselves and we also decorated everything the day before the wedding, which included the entire reception venue and outside where the ceremony took part. The whole of our wedding day was awesome so our entire wedding was our favourite part!”

“Our wedding was a culmination of everything we love”, said the bride. “Music, fashion, classic cars, dancing, tattoos, comfort food and big parties… We threw in everything! I would say our theme was a 1950s vintage rockabilly and DIY extravaganza! Everyone said this was the most DIY’ed wedding they had ever seen, as well as the only rockabilly wedding they had ever experienced.”

Tiffany and Jared’s wedding was inspired by their eclectic tastes and their mutual love of world travel. They also incorporated elements of paganism, and The Grateful Dead!

“The entire wedding was DIY”, explained the bride. “As a production designer, it was a dream to design the venue from scratch and with only our vision. It was beautiful. The bridal party spent the week before the ceremony using the site as an artist’s retreat to build structures, hand-paint signs, build sets, and curate the space. Every single item was hand selected, fabricated, altered and curated with meaning and intention.”
