Rustic Romanian-English Barn Wedding (with A Parrot Ringbearer!)

Andreea and Steve’s rustic luxe tipi wedding was a perfect blend of Romanian and English cultures with a Midsummer Night’s Dream feel. Read on to see the best, most ethereal bridal hair you’ve ever seen, and a parrot ringbearer. Yep, you read that right!

It’s easy to see the Midsummer Night’s Dream influence on this wedding. Andreea’s hair is incredible on it’s own – long and flowy and such a GORGE shade of red – but woven with flowers it’s basically the fairy princess hair of dreams. Andreea’s stunning wedding dress was from Natalia Vasiliev, the perfect middle ground between a fuller skirt and being able to actually move on your wedding day – just look at the movement in that skirt!  She finished her look with a necklace and earrings that belonged to Steve’s late mother, and Jeffrey Campbell ‘Lolita’ shoes. Her bridesmaids also wore flowers in their hair to match their trailing bouquets,  and cornflower blue dresses to tie in.

Their hand-fasting ceremony was held outside in front of a wooden frame covered with stunning blue and lilac flowers by The Luxe Design Co. After an emotional first look, Andreea’s dad walked her down the aisle in his full ceremonial outfit. They were also accompanied by by Andreea and Steve’s pet parrot, Jay, who came down the aisle on Andreea’s shoulder!

A Las Vegas Wedding with a Roller Skating Bride & A Hotel Room Pizza Party Reception

Maddie and Matt wanted to go away to get married to picked Las Vegas followed by a two week honeymoon in Nevada and California. The bride, who did roller derby, met her BMX-loving groom at a skate park and although they didn’t really care about having too much of a theme, they wanted the day to reflect both of their interests.

The bride wore a bohemian inspired dress from Blush Fashion and roller skates which she customised herself! The groom also customised a BMX for the day which he also rode down the aisle! “Not everyone rolls down the aisle on skates and on a BMX I guess”, laughed the bride. “Our ceremony was at The Artisan hotel and pretty short and sweet. My dad drove me to the ceremony in a Porsche and Matt was waiting nervously inside with our friends an family. The thing I was most nervous about was that I may forget how to skate and fall over or get my dress caught up in my wheels! Or that the online livestream wouldn’t work and people at home who had stayed up late to watch wouldn’t be able to tune in! All went without a hitch though and our officiant, Chad, gave us a lovely ceremony.”

Intimate and Colourful Wedding with Seven Guests

Liam and Sarah wanted a small wedding which meant they only invited their closest friends and immediate family. They had a big party at a later date for everyone else.

“We didn’t want too much fuss and wanted to keep everything relaxed with lots of colour”, Sarah said. “When we got engaged we immediately said we wanted a small wedding so we could celebrate with our closest family in a beautiful place. We decided just to go for it so we booked the venue in February and got married in May! It was quite a quick turn around but we wouldn’t do it any differently.”

The bride made the cake and made the bouquets herself. ” I picked bunches of flowers I liked from supermarkets and then arranged them together and tied them with brown string to give them a soft rustic feel. The table flowers were provided by Donna Beaver Flower Studio. The cake was also made by me the day before the wedding. The kitchen was covered in rainbow coloured icing and my fingers were crossed the whole drive to the venue as I was nervous the cake might get squished at every turn!”

Fantasy and Fiction Wedding

Fantasy&Fiction_RachelMcNeil167

Lauren and JP’s Glasgow wedding was based on their mutual love of Scotland and literature. “Our inspiration was really just stuff we like”, Lauren wrote. “Medieval mixed with Scottish mixed with books mixed with 50s mixed with tattoos mixed with pumpkins! It was lucky that our mish-mash just worked in the space together! There’s nothing like that moment when you see your vision for the day come together so well.”

“If I had to describe the theme to someone I would say ‘fantasy and fiction’ as books really ended up as our main theme. We had the tables named after our favourite authors, bookmark favours and many other little nods to authors like the card box in the shape of the luggage from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld book series.”

“The cake was made by my brother and was decorated with spines of books we have read and loved. It was a chocolate and whisky sponge and looked amazing! The cake was my big surprise on the day as he kept his plans a secret. My brother is a pastry chef and has worked in some pretty prestigious places so a lot was expected of him, and he certainly delivered! After the wedding he tweeted pictures of his cake to some of the authors featured on it and they responded!”

“Rusalka” Styled Wedding Shoot

Rusalka-Styled-Shoot-Photography-Farm-Devlin-Photos-294

For the photo shoot at the latest Photography Farm workshop, photographer Lisa Devlin knew she needed to do something big. After all, at the last Farm Gareth and I got married again! After seeing Megan and Grant’s gorgeous wedding on Rock n Roll Bride, and reading how much Megan loves Disney (and just so happens to resemble a certain crimson haired mermaid) the ideas started bubbling away. She wanted to put a different twist on the mermaid idea though and eventually came across the story of Rusalka, from which The Little Mermaid movie was based. Luckily Megan and Grant also loved the idea and we’re thrilled to model for her!

“Our shoot was based on the Slavic Myth of Rusalkas”, Lisa told me, “Water spirits or mermaids with long red hair, who had to come into the woods for one week each year where they whiled away the time longing for the sea and hanging out by streams and rivers trying to lure young men into the water. Our slight twist is that our Rusalka falls in love with a boy in the woods and decides to stay so she has to make do with the bathtub!”
