Moody & Romantic Woodland Wedding

With a $10,000 budget, Allexa and Evan saved in many areas when it came to planning their March wedding. “One of our biggest savings was hiring an AirBnb for the weekend,” the bride told us. “Not only was it much cheaper than a venue would have been, it also included our accommodation expenses for three nights!”

They chose a retreat in McKinleyville, California, as the hub for their warm and cosy, woodland themed day. “I wanted the day to have an ethereal but edgy, enchanted forest vibe. I spent the last five years collecting ideas from Pinterest and Instagram, and pulled in our own ideas to make the day feel more like ‘us’”.

Dark, Romantic meets Antiques Themed Wedding with Sustainable Touches

Jade and Pete drew inspiration on how they decorate their home for their October wedding day. The bride told us – “firstly we love Halloween, so that influences our personal decorative style, which we wanted reflected in our wedding theme. We’re very much into a dark, romantic, antique style with touches of goth so to do this we incorporated plenty of candelabras, moss, books etc. We thought deeper with the personal details, too – forfor instance, the feathers shown throughout the tablescapes are from my mum’s chickens. I also try my best to be as sustainable as possible so I bought items that I could reuse in our home.”

Every aspect of the wedding had personal touches woven throughout. Jade and her bridesmaids made the floral arrangements, they had custom wedding rings made especially for them, and Pete’s outfit was custom, too. Jade wore a Sophia Tolli Australia gown from Alessia’s Bridal during the day, changing to a jumpsuit from Lulu’s paired with a Nasty Gal leather jacket for the evening.

A Moody meets Romantic Vow Renewal

When Alicia and Vince were first married, there were too many other things going on in their lives that were stressors and made having an actual wedding impossible. Instead they eloped to Vegas for a quick ceremony. “We always planned to save and have a wedding but the timing was just never right and life became too busy,” the bride told us.

“When my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary, we talked about the wedding we never had and how we would do things differently. We started floating around the idea of renewing our vows and what that would actually look like. I wanted to celebrate us, where we made it in our lives together as partners and ultimately have photos to document our union.”

They decided to spend the whole day together, along with their photographer, hitting up the arcade, playing pinball, sharing hot wings and margaritas with their bridal party all dressed up in their wedding gear before getting married later that night.

Phantom of the Opera Meets Interview with a Vampire

Misty and David’s Memphis wedding was 1930s formal meet 1800s masquerade ball. And as a couple who hit it off discussing Dali’s rare Alice In Wonderland paintings, we’d expect nothing less than artistic brilliance. At their first meeting with their wedding planner Misty informed her she wanted their ceremony to look like something out of Interview with a Vampire, and a mixture of 1920s and 1930s Hollywood glam meets old world Parisian brothel!

“David and I love the music and formality of the big band era by day, but by night are deeply intrigued and inspired by the era of Romanticism,” Misty explains. “Our ceremony was therefore inspired by a mixture of elements from Phantom of the Opera and Interview with a Vampire – formal yet dark, intense and mysterious.”

Neus and Joan’s Spanish wedding is nothing short of dreamy. Hosted on their family estate in Palma, Mallorca, their day was laidback luxe with romantic boho touches.

As all good love stories do, Neus and Joan’s starts with the sentence “a bacon sandwich and a coke, please”. They met in bar where Joan used to have breakfast every morning, and fell in love instantly! “With those first words none of us would have thought that a love would grow from it, but against all odds we feel for each other and all the differences were left aside to start our love story,” Neus says.

“The inspiration was my personality!” she continues. “It was all very personal – it was held in our family and my cousin, Margalida, officiated it.” Their ceremony was held in a secluded area of the estate with guests lining the stone path to watch. Their florist suspended single flower heads from above stacked with greenery, and attached romantic floral arrangements to the ends of the chairs, as well as creating a boho arch made of greenery.
