Bride of Chucky Themed Wedding in Dublin

Bren and Cha’s spring wedding in Dublin was all about the fun. They moved between two venues in the city: The country pub, Anglers Rest, for the ceremony and then on to the reception at their favourite nightclub. The Grand Social. The bride paid €50 for her dress in a charity shop and got it customised to suit her style. Chucky and the Bride of Chucky made multiple appearances, and their friends played a huge part in the day from making the bouquet, decorating the reception venue, DJing, to making the wedding cake.

The pair met at college, studying film. “We are both big film nerds, so I’d say if there was any theme to our day, it was that. Each table was named after our favourite romantic films, from The Apartment to Bride of Chucky, with a corresponding framed still with an appropriate quote. We just wanted to ensure that we reflected ourselves and our tastes completely. We wanted to feel comfortable, relaxed, happy and joyful, and to give all of our beloved friends and family a cracking day out.”

Wes Anderson Inspired Wedding in a Pink Tin Chapel

Emma and Jimmy’s Wes Anderson inspired wedding had a bit of a pink theme – from the groom’s suit (which he made himself!), the DIY flowers and even the chapel they were married in! Their summer wedding took place at Kent Life in Maidstone which is is a working heritage farm and museum.

“The thing that was most important to us was that the day felt relaxed and fun”, began Emma. “We had a bit of a mismatched theme with lots of Wes Anderson touches (we’re big fans), chevrons, animals (the venue is a farm), and music.”

“We took a lot of inspiration from our venue. We had use of the grounds and three buildings. The ceremony took place in an amazing 19th century pink tin chapel called the Cuxton Chapel as it used to be in the town of Cuxton. The chapel is deconsecrated, which was perfect for us as atheists. Plus, I love religious iconography and symbolism so the dark teal interior with the organ and crucifixes were just perfect. It was like something from a film or a retro photo. Also, there are alpacas! We first visited Kent Life before we were engaged and after Jimmy proposed I think we both knew that there was never going to be any other option as to where we got married.”

Chilled Beach Wedding Inspired by Bougenvillia

Lynne and Callum described their wedding as ‘beachy and chilled’ and were inspired by the colour of pink Bougenvillia flowers, which also reminded them of sunshine, holidays and good times together. They had pink invitations, pink flowers and Lynne wore a non-traditional two-piece with a dip-dyed pink skirt.

The couple were actually legally married in London beforehand, which took the pressure off. “It was a really relaxed ceremony,” said Lynne, “we had two readings; Mission Beach by Clare Pollard and an excerpt from Hemmingway’s A Farewell to Arms read by two of our best friends. We also got everyone to sing Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles and Is this Love by Bob Marley. The songs were brilliant and it was quite amusing looking at everyone having a sing and a little dance during the ceremony. Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Callum and all our guests together was my favourite part of the day.”

Two Brides Are Better Than One: Barbie and Kendra Get Married

Two Brides Are Better Than One Barbie and Kendra Get Married (15)

Usually it takes a couple of months for something to be published on the blog after I receive a submission for a feature (yes, my wait list is huge!) but when Barbie and Kendra’s perfect pink pride-filled shoot landed in my inbox yesterday, and in light of the utterly tragic events in Orlando this week, I knew I had to let it jump the queue and feature it as soon as physically possible.

“I love doing styled shoots and am constantly brainstorming ideas for them that are out-of-the-box and never been seen before”, said stylist Leah of Color Pop Events. “One day the idea to do a Barbie-inspired wedding popped into my head, but I knew I wanted to shake things up a bit by have a lesbian couple for the models. I also knew that I wanted the shoot to be incredibly fun, pink and girlie. I must say that I am ecstatic with how it turned out!”

Ajay and Ejay were married at The Mango Farm in Antipolo, The Philippines. They chose pink and black as their colour scheme, and their theme was a mix of Converse trainers (which they both love) and music!

“We wanted to show our different personalities on our wedding day, so we started planning the wedding with just a black and pink theme”, said the bride. “Ajay was a rocker before becoming a lawyer and he’s still the vocalist of a rock band, loves wearing black shirts, and listens to Metallica. I, on the other hand, am a girly-girl. I love Hello Kitty and anything pink!”

“We incorporated other details that we both love,” she continued. “Ajay wanted to wear Chuck Taylor’s with his suit and we asked the groomsmen to wear the same. The flower girls also wore them and I changed into them for the evening. We even encouraged our guests to wear them if they wanted! On the day we were surprised that almost everyone wore them, even those who wore dresses! To fit the theme we put the Chuck Taylor image on our save the date, invitation, monogram, and table names. It became the icon that tied the whole theme together.”

Adriene and Shannon wanted an informal wedding so they held their ceremony at Aids Memorial Grove in the Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. It was followed by a picnic reception in the park. One of the most unique and awesome parts of their wedding was the bride’s ombre wedding dress, which she made herself by upcycling two second-hand dresses and making them into one!

“I put two dresses together and then pinned the ‘petals’ of silk to the base dress in a gradient of colors from light pink to burgundy”, she explained. “I added a right pocket with a ring holding ribbon to keep my future husband’s new piece of jewelry secure and a left pocket for my iPhone! I knew I wanted to make my own dress because making costume-like clothing is my favorite way to express myself.”
