Snowy Colorado Elopement at Sunset with Disco Balls & Champagne

Dani and Dacari had been discussing how their big day would look for a long time. Having been together for eight years, they decided to elope because, as they told us, “The stress of figuring out how to include everything and everyone started to chip away at something that was supposed to feel like magic – elopement was the best choice that we could have made for ourselves and our union. We wanted the freedom to commit to each other in a way that felt deeply personal and private.”

The simplicity of an elopement means you can pick and choose exactly what you want (and don’t want!) included, making it deeply personal to you as a couple. Dacari and Dani continued, “The best thing about planning our wedding happened after we broke outside of the expectation of things looking a certain way. We leaned into the idea of choosing things that felt right for us and that felt like fun–and that’s when things really started to fall into place. We enjoyed picking things out and envisioning what our day would look like.”

Relaxed, DIY Midsummer Night’s Dream Woodland Wedding

Inspired by the people and places they love, Ella and Ben chose a woodland glade to say their vows, surrounded by their friends and family. Ella explained, “We wanted to make everyone feel they were part of something special, exclusive, intimate and family orientated.”

Planning to marry in 2020, their plans were derailed and changed many times. Ella told us “I’ve learned that you cannot control every little thing and as long as you have good music, speeches and enough food and drink for everyone – nothing else really matters. Oh and that a global pandemic can happen at anytime so be prepared adapt your plans!”

Colourful Desert Disco Wedding

Working together as scientists, Jimmy found the way to Alisa’s heart through a bag of M&Ms. They wanted a day full of fun, with lots of gorgeous colour and texture, and chose bright pinks, neon signs and disco balls (as well as an inflatable dinosaur costume) to create their perfect day. 

Both working hard on the pandemic response, the couple faced many pressures and challenges. Their original wedding planner dropped out just four months before their wedding, but The Otherside Creatives stepped in to save the day! It turned out to be the best decision, as Alisa explained, “Even though it worked out for the best, having to find a new wedding planner and day of coordinator 4.5 months before my wedding really sucked at the time. But they took my initial thoughts and created an amazing design that was beyond anything I could have done on my own. They also took a lot of the stress out of planning.”

A Simple Beach Wedding with Rustic & Pink Details

Jess and Luke wanted a simple wedding, which didn’t require putting too much extra pressure into their already busy lives. They chose The Boathouse on Shelly Beach in Manly, NSW, which solidified their beachy theme, and the venue were able to handle a lot of the logistics for them.

“Our wedding theme was simple”, Jess told us. “Luke and I aren’t big over the top people and we didn’t want a massive lavish wedding that wouldn’t suit us. We just wanted our wedding to have a pretty and relaxed vibe.”

They decided on a outdoor rustic style but most of their colours and other choices were made with the bride’s floral Wendy Makin dress as the jumping off point. “The dress was the inspiration for the colour scheme and all the flowers and decorations”, she said.

Backyard Banger: A Kid’s Party Meets Disco Meets Rock Show Wedding!

When the bride’s parents live in a pink house, it would be pretty much criminal not to host the wedding there. So, when Laura and Coby married in December last year, they chose the backyard as the location for their ceremony and drinks reception and decked it out with pink, red and sparkly details including iridescent streamer backdrops, disco balls and pink crates with flowers in them!

“Our wedding theme was pinks and reds galore, full of bright colours, fun and very sparkly”, explained the bride. “It was kinda like a kids party meets disco meets rock show.”

“We wanted our wedding to immediately make people feel relaxed and know they were in for a good time. We wanted the décor and styling to reflect that – it was big old melting pot of lots of ideas all pulled together through colour. Places like Rock n Roll Bride, so many amazing Instagram accounts, vendors, stylists and way too many hours on Pinterest definitely got my creative mind rolling.”

Metallic Fairy Dreams Micro Wedding

This April wedding was a strong female-led affair with both brides being walked down the aisle by their mothers and the cake and flowers being made by Carleigh’s. She even surprised them by putting pictures of some of their favourite people on the bouquets – those that had either passed away and were unable to attend their special day. “Carleigh’s bouquet had a photo of her dad, and Sara’s bouquet had a photo of her grandmothers who raised her”, they explained.

As they had a micro wedding with only nine guests, they were able to keep things fuss-free and inexpensive. The ceremony was led by Sara’s best friend, who is an ordained minister. Our wedding theme was ‘Metallic Fairy Dreams;”, they continued. “Our main inspiration was Sara’s pink suit which came from ASOS.”

Sara hand-painted Carleigh’s ‘Just Married’ jacket and they used an AirBnB as the location. They were pleased they were able to have their dog with them too, “Unfortunately he broke his leg the day before our wedding (and got it amputated two days after).”
