Geeky & Eclectic Feminist Wedding

Self-confessed geeky feminists, Bunty and Sophie wanted a low key, low cost wedding that was full of love and personal details. “We’re both quite geeky so we wanted to have that reflected in the style of the day”, Bunty explained. “We tried to incorporate science, plants, literature and my love of everything gold! We used Pinterest a lot to try budget ideas and of course Rock n Roll Bride!! We spent less than £5000 on the whole affair and we did everything ourselves with help from family and friends.”

Bunty found her Ronald Joyce dress second-hand on eBay for just £120 and Sophie’s suit came fro Ted Baker, the bridesmaids wore various outfits from high street stores. The cake was homemade by Sophie and they did their own invitations. They also didn’t have a band or DJ, opting for a DIY Spotify playlist, and they served Indian food instead of fancy catering.

Las Vegas Elopement with a Neon Museum Ceremony & a Ghost Town Photo Shoot!

Terry and Jess said their vows in September at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas followed by photos at the iconic Seven Magic Mountains and Nelson Ghost Town. Their wedding was just the two of them, and they actually only their parents that they were going to get married just before they left for their ‘holiday’.

“It was just us, our lady officiant and our awesome photographer for the day”, they said. “We stayed off the strip and headed out into the desert for photos at Nelson’s Landing, Seven Magic Mountains and a dry lake bed. It was eight hours of dry, sandy hotness topped off with Mexicana grub at Nacho Daddy!

A Royal Fairy Tale Wedding in Paris… with a Groom in a Cape!

Public service announcement: This is the new base level for the kind of extra you need to be on your wedding day.

Riccardo and James married in Paris in the most over-the-top yet totally intimate and personal way. Their ceremony was held outside Le Petit Palais, an art museum, where they had a hand fasting ceremony officiated by Michelle Wahila of Ruffled by Grace.

Both men wore suits made by Sebastian Cruz, styled in their own unique way – and for James that meant faux flower epaulettes and the most dramatic groomal (is that a word?!) cape I’ve ever seen. It was designed and made by Alexandria Daniels (including the flowers) and the guys added the appliques and crystals. I’m going to start campaigning to see more men in capes please!

The couple met in LA, after James moved there from Huston and began hanging out at the bar where Riccardo worked. They were married in September and were inspired by their love of Paris for the day – so much so that, in the end, they just decided to fly there and do it properly! “It was actually so much easier, cheaper, and less stressful to have a destination wedding”, they said. “Also everything was cheaper than getting married at home. The cost of weddings in the US are so over-inflated. We only spent about 1/3 of what we would have spent in America.”

A Mean Girls New Orleans Wedding with a Groom in Stilettos!

Please excuse me for one second while I FREAK OUT over this wedding. Seph and Jason completely epitomise what Rock n Roll Bride is all about, and no it doesn’t matter one little bit that there’s no ‘bride’ in sight! The single thing that makes this wedding awesome AF is them… Oh and the fact that Seph wore goddamn crystal embellished stilettos for the day and looked way better in them than most women I know… Oh and all the Mean Girls references. OK OK there are many, many things that make this wedding slay my entire existence and I KNOW you’re going to love it to.

Seph and Jason met on a blind date… but it wasn’t actually their date at all! “I was on a blind date at a midnight showering of a Harry Potter movie… with someone else!”, laughed Seph. “The guy I was with knew Jason and said hi to him and they talked for a bit. The next day I got a message on Myspace (yes that’s how long ago this was) from Jason. We started talking then we went to the movies for our first date. Many movies later he asked me to marry him. We had our first non-legal wedding on Halloween in 2009 at a movie theatre in my hometown. Then in 2015 when it became legal for us to get married we decided we wanted to do it again, for real this time.”

Love-Filled Barcelona Bookstore Wedding

Oh, Alexis and Yiorgos. let me count the ways that I completely adore your wedding celebration! Married in September in Barcelona, they had a city hall ceremony followed by a bookstore reception in an industrial area turned artisan market just outside the city. Their wedding planner, Happy Endings Barcelona, did the most incredible job dressing the space with candles, chesterfield sofas, birdcages and flowers, and they pumped out a flog machine during the meal resulting in the most dramatic wedding breakfast ever!

“We met in April, 2003 when Yiorgos came to Barcelona for a Bear Party with one of his best friends,” they began. “On the first night they went out to a bar and there we saw each other… It was love at first sight. We were both too shy to introduce ourselves as we were surrounded by friends, but on the second night we saw each other we started exchanging smiles and warm glances. The third night a mutual friend from the USA finally introduced us and that was it.”

All-The-Colours Hackney Warehouse Wedding with a McDonald’s Wedding Breakfast!

OH MY GOD, oh my god, oh my god. Let me COUNT THE WAYS in which I absolutely adore this wedding. Lusea and Nancy’s incredible wedding style just radiates on pure JOY and their day perfectly bridges the gap between tongue-in-cheek and hand-in-heart. Plus, they had McDonalds as their wedding meal. RELATABLE ICONS.

“We didn’t have a set mind of what kind of wedding we wanted,” Lusea and Nancy say, “we knew more of what we didn’t want. We didn’t care for wedding favours, fancy cars or flowers, so we didn’t have any. The things that were important to us both were our dads walking us down the aisle, and having a space where all 22 kids could run riot.”

They were even open about where in the world to get married. “After looking at a few in Cornwall, Kent and London, and even considering eloping in Las Vegas we came across The Old Dairy in Hackney. We said yes to our venue after the first visit, even though it was really hard to see what we were working with as they had a set built in it at the time. It just had the right vibe for us. We loved how raw and stripped back it was, and knew it could handle how much colour we wanted to inject into it without it feeling too much.”
