Mountain Elopement with a Sunrise Hike, a Sunset Picnic & A Skateboarding Groom!

An elopement, just like a wedding, can be anything you want it to be. You may think that if you’re eloping it’s go to be all about doing things quickly and without fuss, but that doesn’t have to be the case… As today’s wedding proves!

Niky and Vlad, who were married in July in Montana, had a full day of celebrating – from before sunrise to after sunset. The kicked off by waking up before dawn and hiking up their favourite trail (in full wedding garb!) for their sunrise ceremony. Afterwards, they did photos, stopped off at a skate part for Vlad to show off his moves, had burgers for lunch and then went back up the mountain for a sunset picnic complete with cake and pizza!

“Our inspiration came from what we do on the weekends”, the bride explained. “We love hiking on a favourite trail, Vlad finding a skatepark wherever we go, good food and and low pressure. We just wanted to do what we wanted. It felt like a vacation all
day, it was so easy.”

Iridescent Realness: A Super Pink & Sparkly Wedding with BTTF, Harry Potter and Idles References!

Lois and Luke’s love of alternative culture and a desire to stand out from the crowd meant that they had plenty of different ideas to work with for their July wedding day. “I always thought we would have an all out themed wedding,” Lois told us, “but as we have so many interests we couldn’t settle on just one so we decided to incorporate some elements from each.” 

They started with sparkly and iridescent as a colour scheme, mixed with pink to match Luke’s shoes and tie. They then took things from some of their favourite interests; like a Lord of the Rings ring box, a Harry Potter sign, Beatles pocket watch and a matching badge that they both wore to represent their favourite band, IDLES. And that’s how you come up with a wedding theme that’s completely unique to you!

Misty Scottish Wedding in a Polytunnel with a Pink Veil

Barbara and Scott had a big, family-centric wedding in Scotland in a polytunnel on the grounds, Colstoun House, a beautiful house and stable conversion. With colourful seasonal wild flowers, local hops and lots of personal touches. Their centrepieces included Disney princesses, dinosaurs and gin bottles for each table.

“We wanted the ceremony to be as relaxed as possible”, Barbara began, “neither of us particularly enjoy being in the limelight, so we kept it fairly casual. We had a couple of readings from some close friends, which I believe some of our guests found quite unorthodox. Beyond that it was fairly traditional in the format, but mixed with some personal touches by our Humanist celebrant reminding our guests about part of our story together before closing with a traditional Scottish hand-fasting.”
