Romantic Boho Wedding in Mallorca

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.

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!

Rock n Roll Meets Rustic Glam Motorbike Wedding

Brenna and Shawn’s submission was called “dead stuff, gold stuff, black stuff and motorcycles” and we think that just about covers their amazing Rock n Roll meets rustic glam wedding! Having met whilst their bands were touring, it was always going to be a pretty epic celebration…

“Our inspiration was everything we like,” Brenna says, “Gold glittery glam tones and jewel tones, black and bones.” It was also important to the couple that the day was super personal: “Our wedding was at my aunt and uncle’s farmland which has been in our family for generations, and was my grandparent’s favourite place. We spent our wedding night in a hunting cabin that my grandfather and great-grandfather built by hand, that each generation has lovingly updated. It’s a truly beautiful place.”

Brenna looked IIIIIIINSANE in an incredible strapless dress from Oleg Cassini with the most gorgeous metallic floral pattern, before changing into a sequinned fitted stunner for the evening (insert red dancing lady emoji here). Confession – I totally teared up at the photo of her and Shawn, dressed in a smart Men’s Wearhouse suit, doing their first look. Her bridesmaids all wore their own black dresses and sunglasses.

Light and Airy Halloween Wedding in Swansea

Melanie and Adam’s October wedding was a super cute take on a Halloween theme, keeping everything super light, bright and airy at Oldwalls in Gower, Swansea. As an ex practical-SFX artist and with it being Melanie’s favourite holiday, the couple wanted to evoke the imagery and colours, but most importantly the fun of it for all of their friends and family to enjoy. It was also a non-negotiable that her rescue chihauhau, Periwinkle, was able to take part in the day.

Melanie wore a strapless Rembo Styling dress with Virginia The Wolf bone jewellery and her everyday Bloody Mary Metal rings. On her feet she wore purple velvet Alexander McQueen flats with embroidered golden pumpkins, which she found second-hand on Vestaire Collective, and which matched Adam’s purpley Marc Darcy suit. In line with wanting it to be a big excuse for friends and family to have fun and see each other, fancy dress was of course encouraged too, making the ceremony pictures so much fun (spot the skeleton at the back!) It also totally helped that Melanie describes her and Adam as ‘not particularly serious people, so it was a bit more like a stand-up gig with some legal bits in it!’

Modern Winter Witch Californian Wedding

Kelly and Oscar describe their wedding as “modern winter witch themed” and we’re inclined to agree. Their beautifully moody day was inspired by witch practices including herbalism, crystals, tarot and the importance of natural, balanced elements.

“These elements weren’t just for show,” the couple explain, “but are things of importance to both of us. Having all the elements present, that the building had openings in all directions (north, east, south, west), crystals to bring good energy and spirits into the area, herbs to chase away bad energy and spirits, celebrating the cycle of life by having both living and dead pieces; all of these details were intentionally brought in to not only create a fun ambience for the guests, but to include things of deep meaning and importance to us.

Romantic Rustic Jewish Mountain Wedding

Emyli and Matt’s Denver wedding was rustic and romantic, understated and unbelievably pretty. Inspired by the mountains and an open bar, they brought slick style to the gorgeous wildness for their guests, drawing on their love of the outdoors, motocross, and Emyli’s Jewish traditions for a celebration with serious flair.

Emyli walked down the aisle in a beautiful backless halterneck Sarah Seven dress (and gorgeous lilac hair that’s total #hairgoals) to Hans Zimmer’s You’re So Cool. “Looking back, I wish I’d walked slower down the aisle but I was too excited!” she says. “The sun came out just for our ceremony underneath a chuppah on the Strawberry Creek Ranch lawn and it was perfect. Our small dog, Sarah, fell asleep during the ceremony – in spite of us trying to keep it super short and sweet – so I guess it was a little boring!”
