Laidback, Family Picnic Style Farmyard Wedding on a £3,500 Budget

Sharron and Chris wanted their spring wedding day to be really laid-back and for guests to feel relaxed without the usual formalities of a wedding. Sharron also knew she wanted an outdoor ceremony, so started their planning finding a venue that would fit their requirements; Cornish Camels in Helston ticked all the boxes! 

With a £3,500 budget, they kept things super simple and low key. Guests were told to bring a picnic blanket and a chair. They served a cream tea picnic as a wedding breakfast followed by vegan street food later on. The entertainment was already provided in the form of the resident camels, who were looking adorably dishevelled as their fur was malting. They kept decor simple, with table decorations of jars with sheet music wrapped around and bunting loaned from a friend’s previous wedding.

Sentimental & Homemade Wedding with a Pregnant Bride

Rebecca and Simon’s special day was all about the people, rather than the things. They didn’t put any thought into themes, colours or entertainment, and instead wanted to focus on each other and those close to them, by having a really small, un-fussy wedding.

As Rebecca was sixteen weeks pregnant on their wedding day, they had a small budget and wanted to prove to themselves that they could have a beautiful day on very little money. Everything about their wedding was local, memorable and sentimental – they got married at the small registry office round the corner from where they met, had dinner opposite the theatre where Rebecca worked and they had their first date. “We spent the day literally surrounded by all of our memories and all of the people we love, and that was all that mattered to us.” she said.

Bohemian Brazilian Beach Elopement & Pregnancy Announcement!

Larissa and Giovanni wanted their wedding to be as simple as life in the sea – surrounding by just a few people that they love, in their favourite setting, bringing back childhood memories of time at the beach and the smell of the ocean.

They planned their day at the last minute, when their maid-of-honour and photographer was back from travelling to her destination weddings for the season. It was a particularly poignant time for the couple as they were expecting their first child, so it was particularly emotional to be able to celebrate their wedding and pregnancy announcements at the same time.

Laid Back Vegan Picnic Wedding on a Tuesday Afternoon

Louise and Jack celebrated their marriage with a super lovely vegan picnic in the park with their little girl, and gave us all a masterclass in how you truly can have a day that’s only about you and your love.

“Our wedding theme was ‘Let’s do this thing and share our new family name’!” Louise explains. “We really just wanted to be married, to be husband and wife.” They went for a really basic, witnesses-only ceremony on a Tuesday afternoon at Cheltenham Registry Office – Louise says it took longer to fill out the paperwork than it did to get married! In their ceremony, Louise and Jack both changed their name, as they wanted “To share a name that meant so each of us, rather than just following tradition.”

Side note: How emotional was their first look? To be honest, how totally emotional are all of the Luna Palm Photography photos, and, of course, this beautiful video:

As she was seven months pregnant with their second child, Louise chose not to wear a dress, opting for a white multiway jumpsuit from Pretty Little Thing. Louise also took a glue gun to a simple flower crown from ASOS to make it suit her a little better.

Forest Elopement with a Pregnant Bride!

What struck us most about the beauty of this styled shoot is just how rare it is to see pregnant brides featured in mainstream bridal media – for the most part we’re still being served these virginal images of slim brides dressed in white, and obviously, at Rock n Roll Bride, we ain’t down with that.

Planned or unplanned, finding out you’re going to be pregnant on your wedding day – albeit super exciting! – can also add a whole new level of stresses and emotions to the proceedings, which can only be exasperated when you’re searching for inspiration and finding zilch that’ll fit your circumstances. What will my dress fit like? Should I try to make myself look ‘less pregnant’? do I have to act differently?!
