Vibrant meets Rustic Maine Wedding

Born and bred in Maine, Alissa always knew she wanted to get married outside in a beautiful space, close to where she grew up. Her and fiancé Hayden found the perfect spot in Cunningham Farm near Portland, packed full of New England charm.

“I’d describe our wedding theme as quirky with a rustic charm,” the bride told us. Bad Rabbit Flowers provided tonnes of gorgeous colourful florals, festooning their ceremony archway, the swing that their first look took place at, and even a rowing boat that the couple stole a few minutes away from everyone to take a row in!

Rustic, Upcycled New Zealand Wedding with Touches of Harry Potter

Danielle and Glen ended up throwing any notions of a budget out of the window when it came to planning their wedding. After changing their wedding plans what seemed like 101 times, they finally decided on what they wanted with just four months to go.

They were married at The Waterlily Gardens near Waihi, New Zealand in April. Danielle has always wanted to do things a bit differently to the norm, and her plans for their wedding day followed suit. She didn’t want a colour scheme, instead wanting a variety of elements that represented the two of them to naturally form a theme. She wanted her tattoos on display, to rock dusky pink hair and her bridesmaids to be in floral dresses instead of matchy-matchy coloured ones. Ultimately, they wanted a day that reflected and felt like a representation of the two of them.

Smallwoodstock: Festival Meets Summer Fête Wedding with Fun For All the Family

Louise and Gaz were inspired by the fun times they had going to Reading festival together in their 20s when it came to planning their summer wedding. They also wanted as un-wedding like wedding as possible; having been to all the stereotypical weddings over the years, they were determined to have the absolute opposite. 

And that’s how Smallwoodstock was born! They originally considered having a low-key register office ceremony, but having waited 18 years to finally tie the knot, they wanted a day that their family could remember; “And at our age, there’s not that many excuses for a big party,” said Louise, “you tend to see people at funerals not weddings haha!”

Eclectic & Modern Bohemian Wedding

Sara and Thom made their family and friends the focus for their summer wedding; they wanted to create a comfortable space for everyone to hang out, get to know each other, have good food and just enjoy themselves. Most of their friends and family were travelling out of state to join them in their celebrations, so they wanted to make it kid friendly so everyone could relax together, too.

Aesthetically, they didn’t really have a theme, but they wanted their personal styles to be reflected in their decor. “We wanted sort of an eclectic vintage boho modern vibe without looking too trendy,” said Sara.  “But I have to admit we didn’t need to do much because our venue was already perfect. I mean – open air chapel built with antique doors found in Paris, overlooking a pasture where horses are galloping by during the ceremony? We didn’t need a theme!”

Budget-Friendly Backyard Wedding with a Fairy Princess Bride

Leah and Josh met at university and became friend over a mutual love of video games, animation and music.

They hosted an intimate ceremony and pot-luck dinner in their own back garden, and then got all their friends together the following night at their favourite bar to continues the festivities.

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.
