I can all but guarantee you won’t have seen a wedding quite like this one before! Sijin and Paul had a big budget, seriously creative wedding complete with the bride arriving on horseback! They were legally married on August 17th at Lambeth Town Hall in London (not pictured). Following this they had their main celebration at Bran Castle in Brasov, Romania!
The bride wore TWO amazing one-of-a-kind dresses, made for her by Brighton-based designer Joanne Fleming. Her accessorises were something else too – a seriously impressive headpiece, shoulder pads (!) and a skeletal-inspired corsete that she wore over her second, 1930s inspired gown. These were all made by Osipa Agnieszka Philippe Pfeiffer. Her shoes were from Gianvito Rossi. The groom wore head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana.
If there’s one wedding theme I can always get on board with its a cat themed wedding. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already know how obsessed I am with my own furbabies so obviously as soon as I saw Elena and Sebastian’s feline-featuring big day I was ready to feature it!
The pair were married in Romania, at The Wedding House in Giurgiu. “Our wedding theme was ‘Dancing Cat’!”, began the bride, “we nicknamed the event our ‘purrfect day’ though! We were both inspired by the things that we love: Our cats and animals in general, dancing, nature, greenery, strong coffee, anything-with-gin, thai food, lights (even better cat-shaped LED lights!) and having a general positivity about life.”
The couple wanted their cat theme to run through every aspect of their day. “It was very important for us to create a visual identity that we could integrate in all aspects of the wedding”, she continued, “from the invitations, to decorations, to our first dance. This is why our wedding rings have a tiny message written on the inside with a cat pun! This is also why we used Lolcats on our invitations, even if many people didn’t understand it! It goes without saying that we were very lucky to have an incredibly talented friend that draws and illustrates and that she created the perfect design for us. We were so thrilled with it that I had a bigger version printed and framed for our house. She also designed our wedding logo which we had printed onto stickers which we put on everything. We also turned it into pins that guests could wear instead of flowers.”
There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing weddings like this. Ones with truly unique ideas and styling, and ones that so very clearly express the style and mutual awesomeness of the couple! Roxanne and George were married in London on Halloween but then went home to Romania for a big celebration.
“Our wedding was non-traditional, cool, funny, colourful and with loads of love and fun”, said the bride. “We wanted our wedding to reflect who we are. We had this wedding party three days before our two year anniversary.”
“Our small team of ‘fashion and other demons’ (helpers!) were responsible for the groom’s vest, my dress and accessories, and even dying my hair. They also helped with all the decorating.”
Music festival lovers Cris and Vlad wanted their Romanian wedding to reflect their love of going to, and playing at them. “The inspiration for our wedding was music festivals, Woodstock in particular”, said the bride. “My husband proposed at Sziget Festival, in a tent, at 3 am and I am in a band so it made perfect sense.”
“We had LOTS of little details at the wedding, all of which were inspired by music festivals and bands we love. Each guest received a wristband and we even had an ‘Official Merchandise’ stand where were had CDs, badges, cups and t-shirts for our guests to take away. We arrived in a VW van and most of our guests camped over.”
