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!

Not Your Usual Vegas Wedding: Rustic & Relaxed Warehouse Wedding

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. Not your average Vegas venue then! 

They incorporated teals and various shades of blues into their laid back day; one of the couples’ favourite details were their matching bedazzled Nikes. Courtney wore a David’s Bridal dress, with the bridesmaids in Birdy Grey.

Intimate & Rustic Destination Wedding in Sicily with a Lilac Dress

Baglio di Pianetto, a winery in Sicily, was the setting for Jenn & Mike’s intimate wedding last year. Pre-pandemic, they still opted for a small wedding, inviting just 20 guests. The wedding took place on a Tuesday evening and after a short, symbolic ceremony, they hosted a simple Sicilian meal for their loved ones. They kept things as fuss-free as possible – there was no band, no big décor elements and no forced itinerary for the day.

Originally they planned to elope, but when their friends and families found out they were going to Sicily, where the groom’s grandparents were from, a few of them wanted to come along, too. The planned an adventure for everyone for the week before where they all travelled around the country in caravans visiting wineries, ruins, olive farms and beaches. The couple had some maps of the trip they all took made which were a really lovely memento of everywhere they went.

Metal Music Lovers’ Italian Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress & A First Dance to Rammstein

When you picture an Italian wedding, you might be forgiven for thinking it would be super traditional and definitely in a church, but when the couple in question met at one of Italy’s biggest metal music festivals, their wedding was definitely going to go down a little differently. Erica and Antonio chose to tie the knot at Cà del Facco, a farm meets holiday home in the Lombardy countryside where they brought their relaxed, romantic wedding (that still felt totally ‘them’) to life.

One of the most unique elements about the day was that the bride chose to wear black in the form of a black lace and layered tulle gown from Clara Couture and she paired it with a matching black veil. The groom wore a deep blue damask suit with a walking stick and a top hat!

An Essex Woodland Wedding with DIY Details

Ruby and Jamie’s woodland wedding was inspired by their venue. They knew they wanted to get married in the woods, and when they found Captain Wood Barn, they knew it was perfect. They were married in August and chose a burgundy as their main colour, reflected in the groom’s suit, the bride’s lipstick, shoes and crown, and the flowers.

They also did LOADS of DIY. Décor wise, they kept things pretty rustic in theme, allowing the beauty of their surroundings to be the star. They made their own table plan, spray-painted a lot of stuff gold including toy animals for the tables, and Jamie’s dad made all the names on the table using pyrography and wood. The bride’s mum made candle holders, the groom’s sister made the cake and another family member did all the flowers! They also ordered lots of paper decorations as well as hired in extra props and furniture.

Rustic & Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Wedding

Krystle and Mike married at Upwaltham Barns, Sussex last year. They decided early on that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them and they added their own personal touches at every opportunity! From the DIY elements to the fact that a real life rainbow appeared at the end of the night, this wedding was a Rock n Roll Bride wedding through and through!

“We went for a rustic and vintage feel to the day,” Krystle told us. “The location helped us a lot deciding when the look and vibe, but once we found our venue I wanted to add a touch of 20s flare mixed with the rural countryside.”
