A Rainbow Ceremony Live Streamed During Lockdown

We’ve got a really sweet and simple lockdown wedding for you today, which will definitely inspire you if you’ve decided to take advantage of the new guidelines in the UK where small weddings can now take place, or if you want to honour your original wedding date and still have a ceremony.

Ali and Edd had a Zoom ceremony in early June, and although the ceremony wasn’t legally binding they will forever celebrate it as what they see as their wedding anniversary. They plan to have the big wedding and do the legal bit next year.

They spent just £300 to make this happen, and most of that went on the online platform they used to make sure the process was seamless. “Our friends Sam and Ruth put us in touch with splinterfaction.com who ran the whole online platform”, she explained. “Using it was worth every penny. They made sure that everyone of our 80 guests was looked after and had the opportunity to speak to us through a breakout room.”

Ali wore a rainbow dress from Hell Bunny with a DIY flower crown (made at her virtual hen do!) and a yellow veil which she dyed with turmeric herself the morning of. “I had previously been married in 2012 and was going through the loft and found my veil in a bag. That meant so much to me then and I thought that I should give it one more outing as it was so beautiful. I dyed it with turmeric and dried it on the line to wear that day. I loved it and it made me so happy. I then gifted it in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group so that another pandemic bride could wear it. She said that she is going to initial it at the bottom with both our names and then pass it on to the next one in the hope that they will keep on the tradition.”

A good friend from their village conduced the ceremony (social distancing of course) while their friends and family tuned in to watch live. They stood in front of a 100-piece rainbow balloon arch, which they made themselves. Afterwards they cut and ate a cake (made by some ladies in the village), ate steaks and did a social distancing shoot with their photographer Rob Dodsworth.

Contemporary & Colourful Saguaro Palm Springs Wedding

Ali’s main goal for her June wedding to Mike was for it to feel modern and contemporary with a colourful edge. They chose the iconic Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs which obviously ticked all the colourful boxes! They didn’t need to add much in the need of extra decor at all, using the rainbow backdrop of the hotel in all their photos.

“We both knew we wanted a desert wedding, but didn’t want to ‘rough it’ out in the middle of no where”, Ali said. “Palm Springs has always been a special getaway for us since early in our relationship, and it has the look and feel of the desert vibe we wanted. Mike and I are also big fans of the tiki world. We knew we wanted to incorporate some of that into the wedding, but without having it be a ‘tiki themed’ wedding. As soon as I saw The Saguaro Palm Springs, I knew that’s where we’d be getting married one day!”

Intimate & Colourful Urban Farm Wedding

Sam and Jeremy’s colourful wedding took place on November 2, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. They chose Paradigm Gardens, a cute little urban farm next to the interstate, as the venue. Sam wore a Chotronette dress while Jeremy was in a custom suit by Harper & Jones and in lieu of a large bridal party they each chose one ‘best person’.

All of their wedding suppliers were friends beforehand including their photographer, ceremony officiant and entertainment. And after their short ceremony, they celebrated with a small group of friends and family where they ate, drank and danced the night away to their favourite tunes from the 60s and 70s.

A Homemade Rainbow Explosion Wedding with Pokemon, Dominos & Nerf Guns!

Becca and David knew that when it came to planning their wedding, they wanted something completely different. “Having the same wedding that I’ve been to 10 times already is my idea of a nightmare,” said the bride. “We just wanted a super fun day full of high energy and all the things we love.” Who could be melancholy with so much colour around them?!

The couple were actually already married, just the two of them and best man in a Pikachu costume (of course) in a little chapel in Vegas, so their home September wedding was a chance to celebrate with all their friends and family. They had a £13,000 budget so undertook a lot of DIY to bring their dreams to life. “The hardest part was trying to find somewhere to put a bunch of teepees and power and toilets that didn’t want to charge £2k for the privilege!” said Becca.

Sequins & Pink Meets Bohemian Disco & Rainbows: A Two-Day Colour Explosion Wedding in Penzance

When colour queen Sara married her beau Joey in August 2019, she knew that one day (and one outfit!!) would never be enough. So, they decided to have a two-day celebration, with the legal ceremony on the Wednesday, and the bohemian rainbow party the following Saturday.

The theme for their legal ceremony was pink and sequins (bringing Vegas to Penzance was their inspiration!) with both of them dressing the part. Sara designed and made her pink and iridescent sequin dress inspired by a 70s pattern to match Joey’s ASOS blazer. She also made her headpiece and veil herself.

After a quick ceremony at Penzance Registry Office, they headed over to Cape Cornwall (their special place where Sara proposed) for champagne and a picnic. They then finished the day with dinner at the Cornish Barn, one of their favourite places to eat.

Pick ’n Mix Destination Wedding Inspired By Travel, Rainbows & Music

Raquel and Chris found inspiration absolutely everywhere for their September wedding, and as such, ended up with a pick ’n mix theme based on all the things they love! They didn’t worry if things went together or suited anything else – they just decided to have subtle details of the things they love or that meant something to them.

They both love to travel, so first on their agenda was to make a trip out of their big day – and where in the world could they do it where anything goes? Only Vegas, of course! They added a trip to LA and Joshua Tree with a couple of their pals before their wedding at the JW Marriott in Las Vegas, and they were so glad they did – it made the lead up to the big day even more magical. “Planning a wedding in a place we’d never been before and only having the picture in our minds to go on, it was incredible to see it come together on the day and exceed our expectations.” said Raquel.
