Laid Back & Sparkly Wedding with Rustic Fairy Vibes

Amy and Ben were inspired by the town of Rosendal in South Africa for their March wedding. “As we were getting married away from home, we wanted our friends and family to experience this destination the way did – which was romantic, rustic and laidback.”

The couple enjoyed thinking of ways to make the wedding a magnificent experience for everyone, and for ways to incorporate Ben’s Afrikaans heritage into their day. The hosted for the whole weekend, made all the decor themselves, incorporating local foliage into centrepieces and table decor and got married in the groom’s family backyard under a willow tree under an arch his family lovingly made as a surprise for them.

Music Lovers’ Santa Fe Wedding with Traditional Touches & a Silent Disco

When Rock n Roll Bride was created in 2007, I wrote a manifesto, which has remained the same to this day. It states,

Rock n Roll Bride is all about the charm and unique nature of ordinary people’s extraordinary weddings. Our passion is inspiring couples to plan the wedding that they really want in a world dictated by tradition.

Being ‘Rock n Roll’ is not about being cool, a rebel or even thinking of the most unique idea you can. It’s about planning a day that reflects you and your partner and declaring your love in your own special way. You don’t have to be wacky; you don’t have to be offbeat and you don’t have to be intentionally quirky – you just have to be you.

We often refer back to this when accepting weddings for publication, and although on first glance you might think Melina and Steve’s Santa Fe wedding looks a little more on the traditional side, when we heard all about how they took every detail of the day and made it their own, we were convinced they were every bit a rock ‘n’ roll couple!

They met in college but fell in love by going to concerts and enjoying live music together. They really wanted their wedding décor to emulate their relationship and journey together so they tables were all named after venues they had seen shows at and their guestbook was made up of vinyls.

Monochrome Meets Rustic Farm Wedding

Although Sam and Mikey had to postpone their 200-perrson dream October wedding, they didn’t have to wait very long. They only pushed back until November and with the help of the bride’s mother and grandmother; who made masks for everyone, blankets and shawls for the bridesmaids, they were able to reschedule in record time.

Although they didn’t set out to have a definite theme for the wedding, it ended up having a rusic vintage feel with autumn colours (dark oranges, reds and purples) plus lots of gold, bronze and sparkle. Both the bride and groom wore black and white.

Vibrant meets Rustic Maine Wedding

Born and bred in Maine, Alissa always knew she wanted to get married outside in a beautiful space, close to where she grew up. Her and fiancé Hayden found the perfect spot in Cunningham Farm near Portland, packed full of New England charm.

“I’d describe our wedding theme as quirky with a rustic charm,” the bride told us. Bad Rabbit Flowers provided tonnes of gorgeous colourful florals, festooning their ceremony archway, the swing that their first look took place at, and even a rowing boat that the couple stole a few minutes away from everyone to take a row in!

Courtney and Aaron wanted a casual wedding, with a relaxed and rustic vibe. They chose The Doyle, a warehouse turned chic industrial venue in downtown Las Vegas for the May wedding, with a very fun addition – the courtyard serves as a working farm where they have a variety of animals, from alpacas to goats to pigs roaming around.
