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).”

Intimate & Kitsch Madonna Inn Wedding

The Madonna Inn, located in San Luis Obispo, California, might just be our dream wedding venue. Perfectly pink, kitsch and retro, it was also the ideal location for Chelsea and Tim’s whimsical wedding too. They were married in July 2019.

“We embraced the craziness of The Madonna Inn and had a full on Madonna Inn wedding theme”, Chelsea began. “Since we knew that all of our guests would be travelling, we wanted to create a weekend space where everyone could stay, hang out by the pool, dine at the restaurants and mingle with each other and get to share in the bizarre experience of staying in one of the 110 unique rooms. Guests who had never met would invite each other to check out the crazy rock shower, their shag-carpeted spiral staircase or the glitter wallpaper in their room; instant ice breaker.”

The bride wore a dress made from vintage lace by Saldana Vintage with vintage hair pins and rings. They opted not to have a bridal party. “Tim and I really looked at all of what goes into a traditional wedding and boiled it down to what actually felt meaningful/memorable to us, what was an old trapping of superstition and what was done only for the sake of tradition,” she continued. “In this process we eschewed the bridal party, bachelor/bachelorette parties (we took a trip to New Orleans together instead), a wedding registry, being walked down the aisle and a ton of other things we felt didn’t suit us.”

Boho Brewery Wedding with Pink, Pink and More Pink!

Vicki and Sam met through a mutual friend in 2007, and like all good millennial relationships, found each other on Myspace and chatted on MSN messenger for a while before going on their first date not long after. Thirteen years later they’re now happily married! 

The couple’s theme revolved around a portrait drawing a friend had gifted them. “I ended up editing it and using it pretty much anywhere I could without going overboard!” said the bride. They married at Wylam Brewery in Newcastle Upon Tyne with a reception at the same venue.

A Pretty in Pink, DIY Back Garden Wedding

You probably already know this, but here at Rock n Roll Bride we are pretty much obsessed with pink, so when Amy and Adam’s wedding landed in our submissions inbox we were thrilled! The couple were married at the bride’s mum’s house in September and the entire wedding was DIY. Pink was the very obvious theme, but the bride loves Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, so that was a big reference point for them too,

“We love pink, flowers and general cuteness, so centred the wedding around this”, Amy said. “We also had a few nods to Japan, cats and ethereal fairies. As I am a huge fan of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, we had fans as favours which were a hot commodity!”

Girly Glam Rock Wedding in Northern Ireland

Inspired by their love of rock music and some of their favourite movie moments, Jenn and Tommy planned a personal, rock ‘n’ roll and wedding at Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ballymena, Northern Ireland last summer. They opted for quite a ‘girly’ colour scheme with pinks, peaches and rose gold, but included many things that reflected Tommy too – not least of all a very special guest appearance from Iron Man himself!

“Music is the centre of our universe,” began bride Jenn. “Instead of coffee in the morning, we blast an earful of Aerosmith. Going to gigs together is our favourite past-time, we’re avid festival goers and Tommy is the singer for a hard rock band. So it was a no-brainer for us to use this as a starting point for our theme, and go from there.”

Jenn walked down the aisle to the Vitamin String Quartet’s version of Sweet Child o’ Mine. Their recessional was The Darkness’ I Believe In A Thing Called Love and their first dance was to I Remember You by Skid Row. Each of their tables was named after one of their favourite artists. They made table-tents which had the menu on one side and a portrait of the artist on the other, which was painted by Jenn.  “We didn’t really get the whole guestbook thing,” said Jenn, “it’s just something we think you’d look at once and put away in a cupboard somewhere. Instead, we bought a surfboard off Gumtree and sanded and painted it. We got our friend to make a vinyl sticker for it saying ’til death do us party’ and got everyone to sign that instead. We’re going to mount it on our kitchen wall so we can appreciate it all year round.”

Blush Pink & Glitz Inspired Wedding with Matching Kilts!

John and Chris toyed with returning to Vegas to get married after getting engaged there in September 2015, but with young family it wouldn’t have been practical, so they set about finding the perfect venue for them to be able to give their big day the feel of the glitz and glam of Vegas! Held at Ingliston Country Club in Bishopton outside of Glasgow, they worked with the coordinator there over a three year engagement to create a day that everyone would remember – and a strict ‘no hat, no entry’ policy to boot!

The couple opted for a very personal humanist ceremony; simply, their story from the very beginning until the present day. It was humorous at times with readings from both of their godmothers but most of all it was emotional, intimate and focused on the two of them. “I made sure to take everything in while walking down the aisle with my mum,” explained John, “and was fixated on my soon to be husband who was waiting on me at the end of the aisle. We literally felt like the only two in the room – it was beautiful.”
