Relaxed meets Retro Pub Wedding with Masses of Florals

Starting their relationship as ‘frenemies’ in a local bar, arguing over which beer was superior, it was fitting that Cass and Mat’s wedding was held in their favourite pub, The Royston Hotel, in Richmond, Australia. Fifteen years after they met, the couple wanted their day to be like the best night at your favourite pub with your closest buddies. With a relaxed vibe and informal dress code, they cranked up the music and cracked open the drinks.

“We wanted the atmosphere in the pub to mimic the feeling you get in those last few minutes, when you’re eagerly waiting for your favourite band to step on stage.” Cass explained. Music was an integral part of the day, with Mat putting a lot of time and thought into creating a playlist for the ceremony to amp up the excitement. They chose You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall & Oates after they had been officially married, and the bridal party then walked out to Dean Martin’s Not the Marrying Kind.

Birmingham Pub Celebration with a Black Wedding Dress

Nicola and Scott were never overly bothered about having a wedding, having been together for 13 years before they decided to do it, but they came around to the idea because they wanted a big party! “We wanted all of our loved ones together for a celebration but were happy to keep the ceremony a more private occasion,” Nicola told us.

With that in mind, they ditched most wedding day traditions like cake cutting, first dance, seating plans and favours. “We were able to create the same kind of atmosphere you would get at a standalone wedding venue in a pub, on a much smaller budget, by picking a stylish location that didn’t require lavish décor, and spending most of the budget on food and drink, because we all know these are the most important elements to a good knee’s up!”

Simple & Fuss-Free London Pub Wedding

Jodie and Anthony, both Aussies, met in London on a dating app. They chose the city that brought them together for their low key wedding, with the intimate ceremony with just 10 of their friends at The Old Marylebone Town Hall followed by an informal larger gathering at the Pub on the Park in Hackney.

“This was our kind of elopement, with our pals here in London”, Jodie explained. “We plan to have a second bigger bash a few years down the line with our friends and family back in Australia. We wanted this one to feel very London and to capture the vibe of the city we’d made home together and all the friendships we’d shared our London experience with. We loved the contrast of the old-English swank of the Marylebone ceremony followed by the belly-up at one of our usual East London pubs.”

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.”
