Laidback Vegan Wedding in Brighton

Violet and Jacob didn’t choose the plant life, the plant life chose them. And that’s why their super chilled Brighton wedding day was a totally vegan affair with tons of gorgeous donuts, pizzas and other goodies. They married in a low key, intimate ceremony with just 35 guests at Brighton Town Hall, with part one of their reception following in the coffee shop where they first met. By approaching their styling in a laidback way and their family and friends all pulling together to provide various services, they managed to create this gorgeous day for under £5,000.

Violet said, “Our aim for the wedding was to have a really nice day and throw a big (ish) party in celebration of our love, surrounded by our favourite people and eating great food. To us it didn’t make sense to eat food we’d never eaten before, or throw a party somewhere we weren’t familiar with, so we chose to give our guests food we knew we loved and took them to places that meant something to us. Part of our reception was held at Bond St. Coffee, where we met, which is owned by a friend of ours. We’ve met so many wonderful people here, some of whom were at the wedding. Most of our suppliers were friends of ours and people we know, so I guess friendship and community was a big part of it. We also didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen in the traditional way, and there was no seating arrangement, so it was all very relaxed.”

Late Summer Wedding With Sunflowers, Glitter & Lots of Pink

We know how you love your rainbows, so today we bring you Julie and Matt’s fiesta of colour that kept the summer shining on their September wedding day. Sunflowers, colourful pom poms, and Julie’s amazing pink hair – you can’t not feel happy looking at this wedding!

Their ceremony was at St Mary Without-the-Walls in Handbridge, Chester, and the reception followed at Eccleston Village Hall“The theme for our wedding was colourful and fun,” said the bride. “We wanted it to be a relaxed affair – just a party to celebrate our togetherness. The inspiration was ‘us’! I don’t think we did anything unique – we wanted the formality all to be in the ceremony and then for everyone to have a party with us and enjoy some scrummy food.”

“The ceremony was magical and relevant. Matt started crying as soon as he saw me (he also cried in rehearsals). Good advice was given by the reverend about having ‘that special picture of the day’ on the fridge to look at when things get hard as a reminder of the love. My niece Cat and her four-year-old daughter did Personal Penguin as a reading. I’d picked it but hadn’t realised it was a song. They sang it (everyone was crying at this point) and it was beautiful.”

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!
