Stress-Free & Sparkly Belgravia Pub Wedding

Ashlie and Steph wanted a stress and fuss-free pub wedding with minimal details and things to worry about! Although they made the table numbers, photo booth and favours themselves, they also didn’t stress over them. The most important thing was that they had a day that felt like them and that they were married by the end of it!

Their ceremony was held at Chelsea Old Town Hall followed by a reception at The Orange public house in Belgravia, where they actually had their very first date. “We wanted a wedding that had the focus on people and not details”, Ashlie began, “and i think we created that perfectly. Having vegan food and drink was also very important to me.”

Budget-Friendly Pub Wedding with the Bride in a Rock n Roll Bride x Little Mistress Dress!

When I designed my wedding dress collection with Little Mistress, the thing I was most excited about was seeing real brides wearing them. So, when this wedding landed in my inbox, I was SO THRILLED to see Vicki looking so damn stunning in the silver sequin Pandora gown!

Vicki’s most excellent taste in wedding dresses isn’t the only thing that makes me love their day though. They really paired everything back (something we’re a huge proponent of here at Rock n Roll Bride!) focusing only on the things that meant the most to them both, while ignoring the usual stress and trappings of a traditional wedding. They chose their local pub as the venue, and apart from personalising their signage by using skateboards (a nod to the groom’s first love!) adding photos of themselves as bunting, they really didn’t bother with many extra props or decorations. All the stationery also was made by the bride herself.

Til Death Do Us Part: Skull Themed Tattoo Artists’ Wedding

Tattoo artists Fiona and Stix met when they worked in the same shop together. They were friends first but it became more than that on a trip to Venice! For their March wedding they wanted to keep things simple, but to include elements that felt right for them. They had little in the way of extra decorations or props, but skulls were a bit of a recurring theme!

“I never really thought of a theme as such, it was just kind of us”, said Fiona “It came together with the things we love. Both being tattooists, we obviously love skulls and all things dark. I just wanted it to be a bit different to the norm but not so it looked like a full-on Halloween party.”

Fiona wore an Essense of Australia dress with an incredible Eliza Jane Howell cape, an Alexander McQueen necklace and spiked Current Mood shoes from Dolls Kill.

“Our attitude is what made our wedding the most unique”, she continued. “I just honestly didn’t care what other people thought about our wedding! I kept telling myself ‘Just do what you want!’ We had decorations the way we wanted them, The Damned blaring as I walked down the aisle, a homemade amethyst and moon handmade crown, a skull wedding ring… and if someone didn’t like it, I didn’t mind.. After all it was for us.”

Minimalist Pub Wedding Shoot Inspired By Neil Gaiman

We’ve got the most delicious wedding inspiration for you today in the form of this super stylish shoot from Stephanie Green Wedding Photography and Blonde Army. It’s always a treat to hear the personal stories and inspirations behind people’s weddings and this is no different, as it’s inspired by a Neil Gaiman poem!

“This shoot was inspired by Neil Gaiman’s poem All I Know About Love, which he wrote for his friends at their wedding party and then posted on his blog journal. I’m a full on fangirl for Gaiman,” Stephanie explains. “In it he speaks of light and dark, so I used this to build upon, using low light, dark shadows and bright light.”

Rockabilly, Sailor Jerry & Tattoo Themed Pub Wedding for £2000

When the couple met via an Instagram account called “The bearded pantie droppers“, you know it’s going to be a good wedding. And you’d be right – Rose and Matt’s rockabilly pub wedding day was a glorious melee of everything they loved including donuts, tattoos and Sailor Jerry. Not only that, but it was all done for £2000. TWO. THOUSAND. POUNDS!

“The inspiration for our wedding was Sailor Jerry, as an artist and the rum,” Rose and Matt explain, “so all of our ideas stemmed and evolved from that. Rose has a mild neon lighting obsession also, so our centrepieces were Sailor Jerry rum bottles we’d collected with an artificial rose in each, and a neon light saying ‘love’ leaning against them, as well as a heart-shaped circus-style light.”

Relaxed and Elegant Dressless North London Pub Wedding

Emma and Roxy’s relaxed city chic wedding day is a totally beautiful celebration of love. It’s so easy to get caught up in the aesthetics of weddings or the little details, but at the base of it all, it should be about a gorgeous love story. This magical North London pub wedding totally does this (although it nails the aesthetic details too!)

“We didn’t have a theme per se,” they explain, “but we wanted to evoke everything we love about that area of London: the history and the nature. So we chose venues with lots of wood, natural light and greenery – a little bit of magic and an ode to the wonderful outdoor festivals we’ve been to. Our aim was to make people feel like they stumbled upon this special place in the heart of North London.”

Emma and Roxy got ready together with their families before jumping in a black cab to get to Burgh House, where they then separately walked down the aisle with their parents by their side. Actually spending time together on the day was key to them, and would be their advice to anyone planning their wedding currently: “Lisa Devlin, our photographer, passed on the advice to spend time together on the day a few weeks before the wedding, and we’re so glad she did.”
