Natural & Outdoorsy Scottish Wedding

Both lovers of nature and being outdoors, Katie and Andy wanted their Scottish wedding to have a really natural feel. It was also really important to them that all their guests were relaxed and that the venue they chose could accommodate everyone they wanted to invite – including their four legged fur-babies!

“Our love of nature and being outside was the inspiration for our wedding”, said the bride. “It was very laid back and informal. Some of our guests wore elegant dresses and suits and others were in jeans and t-shirts. There was little structure to the day and was just about people mingling together and having fun in a beautiful setting.”

The day was held at Taymouth Estate near Aberfeldy. They had a hand-fasting ceremony performed by an interfaith minister. “Angie lead our ceremony. She included a story of how we met and our hopes and wishes for the future. We had a hand-fasting, with each of our bridesmaids and groomsmen draping a different coloured ribbon over our clasped hands, to represent our hopes for our marriage. We spoke personalised vows and placed our rings on our fingers with our hands still tied.”

A Rainbow-Filled Kid’s Birthday Party Wedding

Let’s get one thing straight: Rainbow weddings are always awesome. Why pick one or two colours when you can have the entire spectrum at your disposal!? Ashley and Ben clearly took this attitude when planning their summer wedding too.

After a ceremony at Tonbridge Castle they held their colourful reception in the groom’s parent’s back garden. “Our wedding was like a kid’s birthday party!” said Ashley. “We had a lot of balloons and roughly 100 multi-coloured lanterns hanging from the marquee ceiling. We also had a bouncy castle, pick ‘n’ mix table and a photo booth. We prioritised the guests having fun over us showing off. As such, people could come wearing whatever they wanted, and they could eat and drink as much as they wanted, whenever they wanted. In short, we believe a wedding should just be an awesome party, nothing more nothing less!”

The rainbow theme filtered through into their outfits too. Ashley wore an incredible custom-made dress from The Couture Company (complete with rainbow petticoat!) Irregular Choice shoes (and rainbow sliders for the evening!) and a Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory veil. “My dress was the biggest expense at the wedding”, she explained. “Initially we were budgeting £500 for it but we decided to go the Couture Company for a consultation and I fell in love with there dresses. I ended up spending over  three times that much but there are no regrets here, my dress was perfect!”

Colourful Handmade Irish Wedding

Kelly and Mark met when the bride moved from Ireland to Sydney and she was looking for somewhere to live. Mark opened the door to her when she went to visit the house, so technically they’ve lived together since they first met! They were married in August back in Ireland.

Kelly filled the wedding with so many hand made personal touches. She made her own veil with handmade colourful flowers, hand-embellished all the bridesmaid dresses and made their hair slides. She even hand-painted her own leather jacket. This is one seriously creative bride!

“We didn’t have a theme but once we bought all the bridesmaid dresses it became those colours and flower motifs”, she said. “Weddings are such happy occasions and I wanted everything to reflect that. I also wanted everyone to feel relaxed and neither of us had found wedding planning stressful, so I didn’t want it to feel stressful on the day.”

The small details were what made this wedding truly unique. “Everyone commented on the little details”, she continued. “We also had a humanist ceremony which got a lot of positive comments. A lot of people said they enjoyed how it was light-hearted and fun but with lovely meaning too.”

Glitter, Unicorns & A New Year’s Day Nightclub Party!

It’s unusual for me to start a real wedding feature by sharing the video, but Maliya and Dimitris’ film, made by BeingThere Videography, is such a beauty that I can’t help myself. Put this full screen, turn it up loud and enjoy!

Any wedding where the bride rocks pastel pink hair, they have a unicorn wedding cake and they party in a nightclub is all good in my book. Doesn’t this look like the most fun EVER? They were legally married on Christmas Day and had their party on New Year’s Day!

Crazy Cat Themed Wedding on the Isle of Man

Ruby and Lukasz hosted their cat themed wedding party in October but they were actually legally married a year earlier. “We were broke, we’d just moved countries to the Isle of Man and we just wanted to get married so we eloped and got pizza afterwards!” Ruby explained. “This time we wanted a big party to share with our loved ones. Our budget for the party was £5000 which was pretty spendy for us, but I think it meant we were able to spend more on the things that really made it special like the photographer, the venue and the food.”

Although they were already legally married, they decided to have another ceremony that their friends and family could be a part of. “We thought about just having a big party but we decided we wanted to do the ceremony again too”, she explained. “The first time went so fast and felt so impersonal so we looked online for non-religious ceremonies on the Isle of Man. The IOM Freethinkers are a humanist society which embodies our own beliefs about life and spirituality so it was a perfect fit.”

Colourful Bridal Shoot Inspired by Rock n Roll Bride!

I’m not usually one to get persuaded by flattery, but when a photographer Isabel Sacher emailed me to tell me that this bridal photo shoot was 100% inspired by Rock n Roll Bride, well, I had to check it out! It’s pretty mad to think that this little blog I started in secret ten years ago is now inspiring someone living in a completely different country to create an alternative bridal shoot!

“The inspiration for this shoot was honestly, Kat’s hair!” wrote Isabel. “I always adored her hair, because I used to have coloured hair in earlier days as well. I wanted to create something truly bold. For such a long time I had these fragments in my mind of a bride wearing a combination of a tulle skirt and a leather jacket and on the other side those colour shades of blue and pink I wanted to involve.”
