Simple Wedding Day With a Bride In Red, Chip Butties & Five Wedding Cakes

Maria and Joe wanted a day that was all about simply celebrating with friends and family; reuniting and having a great time. Maria told us, “We kept the day very simple for our guests. Only my dad and I walked down the aisle (the bridesmaids were seated with the guests instead) and we had a small drinks reception and then went straight for dinner. We didn’t have speeches, we didn’t have a first dance, and we cut the cake to signify the start of the evening.”

The couple had a £10,000 budget, and saved money with DIY projects, drying flower petals for confetti, making the table runners and putting together flowers for the reception themselves. Joe also chose a suit he could wear again, and the pair opted for high street outfits.

Maria told us, “We were very lucky to have lots of talented friends support us with things like signage and flowers. we saved money by not spending on things we felt we didn’t need like favours and invites – we used a wedding website and sent save the dates digitally.” They also chose five different cakes from Costco, and cut the red velvet one.

Boat-Access, Micro Wedding with Cliff Diving & a Homemade Red Dress

Emily and Jan’s boat-access, micro wedding was pure magic.  Jan wore a vintage suit while Emily was in a hand-dyed, hand-made red wedding gown. Only their closet family and shaggy dog made the Covid-cut guest list for the day which took place on Slocan Lake in British Columbia. They were wed under a lovingly homemade driftwood arch on a private cliff, which could only be accessed by boat. After the ceremony they ate charcuterie and cliff jumped – perfection!

“Our wedding was supposed to be quite the shindig with live bands, a barn dance a couple of days before, scavenger hunts, farm to table catered dinner and more”, Emily told us. “However, when the pandemic hit, we still wanted to get married but were quite limited in what we could do. We wanted a unique wedding venue that was special to us. I grew up surrounded by the beautiful Kootenays, and have always loved the local lake. Our wedding venue was boat-access only, and I believe we’re the first people to ever get married on ‘Ponderosa Point’.”

Relaxed, Boho Wedding with A Floral Dress

Ava and Nic were actually introduced by Ava’s dad. “Nic had met my dad at a local Trap Shooting Club,” Ava told us. “But the first time we saw each other Nic was hanging out the side of his best friend’s ride (haha) They beeped at me at me sitting at an intersection and waved to me. Apparently I sped away and he knew I stole his heart right then.’

Planning a 2020 wedding mean there was the obvious spanner in the works – COVID – but the couple scaled things back to an intimate affair in their own backyard. “Like for many couples, planning a 2020 wedding sucked but it did bring us closer together and made us realise what is really important; our love for one another. And now we get the best of both worlds! A small, intimate, family wedding ceremony and a large party and celebration later on!”

Red, White & Blue DIY Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf

Trinity Buoy Wharf has one of the best views in London which suited Rebecca and Dave’s red, white and blue themed wedding to a tee. The couple didn’t want the day to be too ‘matchy-matchy’, but they did was cohesive elements to run throughout. The bride wore a stunning red Pronovias dress (from their evening gown range, so less than a quarter of the price of their wedding gowns!), the bridesmaid wore white and Dave and his groomsmen were in blue suits.

Dave designed all the stationery based on the concept of a tube map of their lives (as a timeline), with a line for each of them. The lines came together when they met and formed a single line (their relationship), culminating in the them getting married. Rebecca’s mum made the bouquets and buttonholes using yellow, red and purple flowers with green foliage and she made the cake!

Burnley Gardens Elopement with the Bride in Red

If you’re planning a smaller post-pandemic wedding then you’re going to love reading all about Jodie and Joe’s intimate day. They eloped with just a couple of their friends there, and then later planned an ‘engagement party’ where they could tell everyone they’d actually already got married!

“Our elopement was at Burnley Gardens in Victoria, Australia.”, Jodie told us. “Only our witnesses, celebrant and photographer were there… Oh, and our 12 month old labradoodle Banjo. He got his own white collar and lead for the occasion. Afterwards, our witnesses and us went to a restaurant for dinner. We got married on a Wednesday and all of us returned back to work the day after. It was fun having a secret from work our family and friends!”

Alice in Wonderland Meets Festival Rave Wedding with Glitter, Sequins and Two Red Wedding Dresses!

Vicky and Peter’s big day was inspired by their joint love of parties, festivals and raves – and combined with Vicky’s love of circuses, Alice in Wonderland and randomness, it made for a unique and fun-filled day! “Our main impetus was that everyone have a good time, instead of just watching us have a good time like you see at lots of wedding. We wanted to throw a crazy party that everyone could enjoy!” said Vicky.

The couple were lucky enough to be able to call in a favour for the location of their big day and hold both the ceremony and reception in the gardens of the groom’s boss’ house, so it meant they were completely able to go to town with the way their day looked.
