Mississippi Beach Wedding with a Vera Wang Dress and $1 Bridesmaid Dresses!

Krissy and Mike describe their outdoor wedding as “kinda romantic, southern, nerdy and unique all in one” – sounds cute and right up our street!

Krissy looked effortless in a blush pink Vera Wang dress and vintage jewellery, despite forgetting to put her veil on when she was getting ready! “Well in all the nerves and excitement we forgot to put my veil on”, she laughed. “After the ceremony my maid of honour came running to me to tell me and at that point I was on cloud nine and didn’t care so we popped it in for a few photos.” Her bridesmaids wore purple and grey from David’s Bridal (which were $1 each in a closing sale!) and Mike looked suave in a Marc Jacobs suit – they both wore Vans on their feet – comfort and style in one!

Their ceremony was held on the lawn of The Chimneys, a restaurant in Gulfport, Mississippi with a beautiful beach view. She chose to have both of her parents walking down the aisle. “Both of my parents walked me down the aisle and it meant so much to have them beside me,” Krissy says. “I had a bit of a walk so I couldn’t see Mike until I got closer but the look on his face made every night of planning and all the tears of doubt if I was choosing the right colours for the cake worth it! We literally couldn’t even stand still because we were both so nervous and shaking! There was a nice breeze coming over the water from the beach, the feeling in the air was truly breathtaking and I couldn’t have asked for more.”

Gothic Fairytale Wedding Inspired by Tim Burton

Amy and Andy had a very clear vision for their October wedding: Halloween and Tim Burton. They wanted to use their day to celebrate his magical films that they both grew up with and loved dearly. They also touched upon Halloween by using orange, purple, black and silver in their decorations.

They were married on October 21st (as close to Halloween as they could get) at St Augustine’s in Westgate-On-Sea near Margate. “Halloween has always been a huge yearly event for our family and always one of the happiest so we wanted to choose to celebrate every anniversary as close to it as possible!” Amy began. “For our venue, we wanted somewhere that was a blank canvas and we were delighted to find that St Augustine’s had everything we wanted. It was filled with Victorian and gothic décor with rich reds and gold. They also have a stunning chapel within the building. The gardens were filled with willow trees and made a beautiful backdrop for our photographs.”

“After discovering Rock n Roll Bride magazine we stocked up on every issue to build our confidence and expand our knowledge down the ‘non-traditional’ route to creating a wedding. We raided TK Maxx’s Halloween section the year before. We mixed all of this with an enchanted forest feel to give it a sparkly Halloween base in which we could build upon. Everything we made incorporated some of the smallest additions from the characters and script to make our guests feel like they had entered in to Halloween Town.”

Scottish Wedding with a Purple Haired Bride

Eilidh and Peter had only one thing in mind for their October wedding: To have a damn good party! The day was held at Dalduff Farm in Aryshire, Scotland, and they were very much inspired by their Scottish heritage for their decor and theme.

“We wanted a wedding with plenty laughter, fun, food and frolics with our nearest and
dearest”, said the bride. “What ended up on show was a Scottish barn wedding filled with meaningful vows, beautifully smelling flora and fauna foliage, lanterns and a musical rumpus with our ceilidh band at night. One guest said they felt like they were in a whiskey advert; I liked that.”

“I grew up in the Scottish Highlands on the coast, and Pete in the roving fields of Ballymena Northern Ireland. We both wanted a completely relaxed, countryside-chic vibe, with the flexibility to choose our own ideas. Dalduff Farm allowed this to happen.”

They put a lot of effort into all the little details. “The little details did count”, she continued. “Having the venue for three days, a close friend conducting the ceremony, hiring the farmhouse accommodation, thefirepit with marshmallows, our own bar, sparklers, wild  flowers, winter scented candles, candid photography, confetti cannons, Hog Roasts, wedding feasts, and a band that don’t ‘do’ weddings… that’s what made our wedding special.”

Hair stylist and make up artist Dafna, explains, “The inspiration behind the shoot was to demonstrate how we envision a perfect wedding day preparation, where the groom and bride get pampered and beautified together, along with their best friends. The style throughout the shoot was rockabilly, but kind of casual too as it’s very hot in Israel!”

Carnival of Love

Tara-Lee and Jesse were married at the groom’s family home on Mt Tamborine, Australia. The day had a vintage circus/ carnival theme!

“Jesse and I are far from traditional people”, began the bride. “We like to do things totally left-field and wanted a day that people would be talking about for years to come that would also suit us perfectly. We wanted something fun, wild and not like the everyday type of weddings that people expect. We wanted a big party that we just so happened to get married at.

Their our officiant dressed up as a gypsy psychic for the ceremony and their 6 year old daughter was decked out head to toe as a Ring Master. Their baby daughter was even dressed as a lion! “The ceremony started with Lily standing up on a podium, calling everyone’s attention to ‘Roll up! Take your places because the bride is here!’ I walked down the aisle to City and Colour’s Northern Wind. My vows consisted of gaming references as a surprise to Jesse and his vows consisted of singing I Wanna Grow Old With You from The Wedding Singer, which was the best surprise and was funny because we’d actually joked about them being our wedding vows!”

A Romantic Glass Chapel Ceremony

A Romantic Glass Chapel Ceremony (51)

Chris and Patrick’s romantic wedding was very small. They had only a handful of guests, mostly family.

“The only inspiration I had was that I wanted the wedding to be just about us, our love and our family”, the bride said. “We wanted everything to be simple. This was actually our second wedding because we originally ran away and eloped in Vegas, just the two of us! We went off to Arkansas to get married in the woods, in the fall surroundings with just a few people who are the most important to us (including our kids) there.”

The ceremony was held inside a glass chapel. “The Thorncrown Chapel is set inside the woods and it was so beautiful with all the fall colours. We attend the Unity Church of Peace back home which I tend to describe as the best little hippie church around, we are very much all about peace and love! We found a local minister who worked for the local Unity Church and she performed a very touching and personal ceremony for us.”
