Kawaii Camp-Out with an All-Night Dance Party!

Dena and Dave met at a burlesque show of a mutual friend – Dena was filling in for a performer, dressed as a depression-era hobo complete with fake moustache which she wore all night while they hung out at an after-hours bar.

When planning their big day, they had one requirement in mind – a venue that wouldn’t kick them out at 10pm! Dena found a small summer camp property on Airbnb and the listing included some photos of a wedding there. They ran with the camp theme, inspired by movies like Wet Hot American Summer, and added in elements of things they love – childhood obsessions, all things kawaii, candy, and their mutual love of cats!

Their non-traditional venue allowed them to be completely free with their decor choices, and do exactly what they wanted. They DIY’d almost everything – from camp brochure invites to custom camp t-shirts, Hello Kitty candy centrepieces to My Little Pony Bouquets! They decorated the ceremony and reception spaces from scratch, including 100 tassel for the paper lanterns.

Colourful Bird-Themed Festival Wedding Where EVERYTHING was DIY

Becci and Josh’s colourful DIY bird-themed wedding was an absolute DREAM, and you’re going to adore the photos, I just know it. These two lovebirds (geddit!?) did loads of their day themselves, and produced a super creative wedding choc-full of alternative wedding inspiration.

Their bird theme came from them both loving the outdoors, nature and festivals, and Becci’s dad getting her hooked on watching birds at a young age. They incorporated the theme into essentially every element of the day, including an actual birds of prey flying display as part of the entertainment for guests.

“We’re both really creative people and decided really early on in the planning process that we wanted to make the wedding our own,” Becci explains. “To do this, we basically made everything ourselves!” Over the course of a year, Becci and Josh made 100s of woollen pomp oms and over 1,400 origami cranes to suspend from the barn with coloured ribbon. The paper cranes featured on their incredible DIY wedding backdrop for their lawn ceremony too, which Josh made from wood and ribbon.

Vintage Glam DIY Church Wedding in Nebraska

Lyndee and Connor’s Omaha wedding was a stunning celebration of family, friendship and faith. With a loose theme of ‘vintage glam’, they had their ceremony in an old prebysterian church, built in the 1920s, before moving to 1000 Dodge, a fun industrial space for the reception.

As Lyndee is a hair stylist, she styled her gorgeous blush pink asymmetrical pixie herself alongside the hair of her bridal party. With Connor blindfolded, she also did his hair before he got ready! She wore a beautiful Vera Wang dress from David’s Bridal alongside royal blue heels for her ‘something blue’ (before changing into glittery rose gold Kate Spade Keds for the reception). Her eight bridesmaids also wore Vera Wang, wearing blush satin maxi dresses.

Kitsch, Colourful, Mid-Century Wedding Party

Robyn and Ash were legally married in Vegas at the Chapel of the Flowers but they wanted to host a big party when they got back to Yorkshire for all their family and friends. The party had a really low key, retro and kitsch vibe, hosted at their local community centre. The flowers came from a local flower market, the cakes were from various supermarkets and the stationery was made by the bride. Instead of a fancy meal they served wood-fired pizza and the night ended with – who else? – an Elvis impersonator!

“We were inspired by our favourite Las Vegas hotel, The Flamingo!” explained Robyn. “So the party was flamingo, tropical and retro themed. We also included nods to our combined love for anything colourful and mid-century inspired.”

Rock n Roll Cats, Pink & Metal Themed Wedding

Rhian and Andrew’s wedding theme was ‘Rock n Roll cats’ with the slogan ‘mutual weirdness forever’ and to be honest, that – coupled with the above photo – is pretty much all you need to know to want to find out more…

“We wanted to encapsulate us into our day as much as possible,” Rhian explains, “so we ended up with a lot of different elements – from cats, metal and rock, to leopard print, pink, Pokémon, skulls, and everything in between. We wanted to focus on what we both love in life and what was special between us – but we were also inspired by a lot of different weddings we viewed on your blog!” (You GUYS.)

Rhian is a designer and illustrator so created most of the elements herself, alongside friends. “Nearly everything was completely bespoke, designed, or made by us!” she says. This included table names based on band name-cat hybrids and top table signage saying ‘Hiss and Purrs’ instead of his and hers, as well as hand-painted signs and hand decorated jars filled with hot pink decor.

Vegas-Inspired Wedding with Snazzy Suits, Sequins & All the Confetti!

Gemma’s ‘Suits and Sequins’ summary of her wedding to Guy is very apt, as in true Sinatra style they did things their way. Their Peckham wedding, shot by megababe Devlin Photos, was emotional and incredible from start to finish, from that sparkly green wedding dress (swoon) to the ‘Silly Old Beans’ sign they were married under, and the story behind their couples’ amazing portraits…

“There wasn’t a straight up inspiration for the wedding,” explains Gemma, who works in events as a day job. “With any event I plan I can find that really restrictive, and the beauty of a wedding is that you don’t have to have those boundaries. It can just be about you two, even if nobody else ‘gets it’. Having said that, we did ask everyone to dress in suits and sequins, and it was amazing how everyone turned up – the best dressed bunch of wonderful people.”

Speaking of sequins, Gemma looked every inch the glittery goddess in a spangly green number. “My dress was made by my bridesmaid, Nadia. I found the whole focus on what I was wearing quite overwhelming – it seemed to be everyone’s first question! Even though I left making it until a few weeks before the wedding, we had been searching for the perfect fabric for a few months. I wanted the perfect deep green so I felt like a Supreme. The dress shape was taken from a £12 New Look dress I loved the shape of on myself, which we then adapted.”
