Pretty Pastel Themed Wedding with Subtle Video Game References

As Jen and Will met while working at a video game studio, they wanted to incorporate their love of video games with anime, plants and all things cute but in a subtle way. “We’re both big fans of the Korean ceramic toy art collective TOiNZ and how they display their pieces in outdoor settings”, they said. “We took inspiration from their style and placed small game and anime figurines we’d collected from our travels inside terrariums with succulents to create little scenes. We had pieces from TOiNZ (two little cats!) as our wedding toppers. Will’s shirt also had tiny Pokemon on it.”

With a budget of £15,000, they actually came in slightly under at £13,000 for their January wedding. Held at The Bonded Warehouse in Sunderland, they undertook quite a few DIY projects – as they’re both artists they really wanted to make a lot of things themselves so they could enjoy the experience, and also so they could have things exactly as they wanted.

Pastel meets Moody New Zealand Wedding with Skulls, Crystals and Flowers

Zoe and Myles were in school together; they didn’t share any classes together but knew each other from mutual friends. During a party they hit it off, dated for 8 months then Zoe threw a spanner in the works and moved to England. “I thought that might be it for our relationship as I was planning on staying for a few years,” explained Zoe. “I had the one way ticket before we met. After 5 months, Myles made the leap and moved to England with me. The rest is history.”

The couple travelled home for their December 2019 wedding, which was held at Zoe’s parents house. Their families worked tirelessly over the course of a year to prepare the grounds for the wedding. “My brother’s building firm built fences, retaining walls, stairs, terraces, gardening, a car port and finished off the house to ensure it looked incredible on the day. Having it at my parents place made the whole feel of the wedding relaxed and laid back. It was so special and we could arrange the venue however we liked.”

Jess works for a fashion company and was inspired by one of the store’s props for her October wedding to Dustin. It was a beautiful dried flower arrangement, which as luck would have it, ended up in a sample sale after the season was over, so she snapped it up! They used it to build the altar decor for their ceremony. and from there, the muted pastel tones paired with copper metal inspired an ‘optimistic autumnal’ theme for the rest of the day. 

Jess and Dustin always knew thy wanted a small and intimate wedding, and loved the idea of keeping it really local to where they live. They chose to have their wedding at one of their favourite restaurants in Brooklyn, before moving on to the local shuffleboard club instead of a traditional reception. They then finishing the night with pirogies and dancing to 90s music in a nearby bar ’til 1am.

Magical, Playful & Colourful Unicorn Wedding

There’s only one thing more magical than a wedding I think… and that’s a wedding with a unicorn! Issy and Brad’s summer celebration was themed around the pastel colours that the bride in particular really loves, and when she had the idea to get a unicorn there too, there was no stopping her!

“It was SO hard to find a human height unicorn!” she laughed, “I almost gave up and went for a small one from a theatre prop hire company, until I luckily searched on Facebook and found the lovely, newly set up Unicorn Prop Hire Events! It was driven down from Essex in a horse box, I like to imagine people seeing a unicorn head through a window of the horse box and wondering if they were seeing things!”

Aww Stacey and Ben might be one of the cutest couples ever.

From the DIY flowers, the rainbow balloon arch and the bride’s gorgeous pink leather jacket and pink glitter trimmed veil combo – yep, there’s so much to love in this incredible celebration.

They chose May for their wedding (which is Autumn down under) and they were inspired by colour (duh!), vintage 1960s elements, poms poms, Star Wars! “Our wedding was laid back, colourful, sentimental and intimate”, explained the bride. “Neither of us grew up in Melbourne but it has always felt like home to both of us. When it came time to find venues we needed it to ‘feel’ like us  – not too fancy but also not just a purpose built function centre. We wanted something with soul. We also wanted it to be very local so that when we look back our wedding day will reflect a moment and community for that part of our lives.”
