Stress-Free & Sparkly Belgravia Pub Wedding

Ashlie and Steph wanted a stress and fuss-free pub wedding with minimal details and things to worry about! Although they made the table numbers, photo booth and favours themselves, they also didn’t stress over them. The most important thing was that they had a day that felt like them and that they were married by the end of it!

Their ceremony was held at Chelsea Old Town Hall followed by a reception at The Orange public house in Belgravia, where they actually had their very first date. “We wanted a wedding that had the focus on people and not details”, Ashlie began, “and i think we created that perfectly. Having vegan food and drink was also very important to me.”

A Tuesday Morning Manchester City Centre Wedding

Becs and Megs’ simple wedding started with a ceremony at Manchester register office followed by a restaurant reception at No 1 Canal Street. Armed with a budget of Ā£3500 they only included things they cared about, wore outfits from Karen Millen and kept the extra decorations minimal. The flowers were limited to their bouquets and the flowers in their hair.

“Our wedding theme was Manchester city centre, rainbow and glitter gay!” they said. “We just love each other and wanted to get married! That was all the inspiration we needed.”

They actually started by planning a secret wedding ten weeks before the date. They were going to just ask just two friends to be witnesses which is why they ended up getting married on a Tuesday at 11am! “The ideas then began to grow as we decided we couldn’t be married without our dearest present to celebrate”, they continued. “We were so humbled that people came from Switzerland, Scotland, Ireland, Devon, London, the lakes, the Midlands and Manchester to support us. Everyone had to take a day off work and make childcare arrangements, but none of this seemed to matter to them, we invited them and they were so happy to be invited. We loved marching them across Manchester form the registry office to Canal Street, carrying seven rainbow umbrellas just in case!”

Dogs, Donuts and DIY: A Nature Inspired Wedding in York

Emma and Eliza’s May wedding was inspired by nature and their love of their doggos! Married at Deepdale Farm in York, it was the perfect setting for their laid back meets festival meets DIY celebration.

Their humanist ceremony was led by Louisa of Starr Gazing Ceremonies. It even included a letter from their dog Max who couldn’t be there with them (aww!) “The ceremony was so lovely”, Emma said. “It was completely bespoke, Louisa was amazing and created a whole ceremony around our favourite things – drinking, animals, travelling and each other. It got all the guests involved and it was so much fun. It fitted us perfectly. Our family dog, Tigger, was our ring bearer and he was so well behaved and cute, wearing a lil tux, we loved that he was involved in the day. A funny moment was part way through the ceremony when we realised my Dad had his shoes on the wrong feet! It cracked everyone up and sums up my Dad perfectly.”

Intimate Bandstand Wedding with a Reception in their own Back Garden

Alison and Elizabeth wanted an intimate ceremony followed by a pub lunch and then a big party for all their loved ones in their own back garden. They chose London’s smallest registered wedding venue to get married in – the bandstand in Myatt’s Fields Park, a community-run garden between Camberwell and Brixton. Their day had an overarching theme of flowers and gardens so hired Charley at the London Flower House to decorate the bandstand as well as the marquee frame in their garden with seasonal blooms.

“We are really into our gardening and love big bright flowers”, they explained. “We didn’t have to add much decoration to our garden for the party, but Charley was able to bring all the same colours into our floral arrangements. It all came together really nicely. We kept other decorations to a minimum so the flowers decorating the bandstand and the marquee really stood out.”

Florence Welch Directed by Wes Anderson & a Dash of Sailor Moon

If you don’t immediately loveĀ Cami and Pilo and their INCREDIBLE OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD BEAUTIFUL wedding then we can never be friends. Period. They were married at a friends house in Chile in April. The wedding was a collaborative project between them and their friends, they even self-catered the entire event!

The day was inspired by the aesthetics ofĀ Florence Welch and Wes Anderson as well as Sailor Moon. They actually met as Sailor Moon cosplay team mates,”Cami was Sailor Neptune and Pilo was Sailor Uranus”, they said.

Of their $2000 budget, they saved the most on the catering (DIY), the venue (a friends house) and entertainment (Spotify playlist). Cami’s dress was also a gift. “PiloĀ works as Art Director, so he designed every visual piece, from the save the date image to the bathroom sign and the favours. We filled every little organza bag with pink salt from the Andes, tied the little ropes and everything.”

Intimate Bohemian Wedding with Italian & Russian Traditions

Selene and Marina, can we be friends? I mean, seriously, look at how lovely everything is! The couple were married last September atĀ Trulli di Montaltino, a holiday rental inĀ Puglia, Italy.

Seven year ago Selene, who was living in Italy, met Marina, originally from Russia, when they were randomly both selected to attend the same training program inĀ Atlanta, USA – talk about fate! “Since the beginning we had a special connection and in few months we became best friends”, Selene explained.

“After a year of great friendship, it became something more, something so just so precious and rare. It was the first time for both of us to have a relationship with a woman (we both only had relationships we guys in the past). As I had to go back to Italy and Marina moved to Los Angeles to proceed her studies, we lived the first two years of our relationship far away. It has been incredible tough, however it help on creating a special relationship based on trust, a true unconditional love. After two years of long distance relationship I moved to NYC for work and she moved from LA to NYC so we could finally live together and enjoy every day of our lives.Ā I proposed her on a desert beach in the Caribbean and I still remember the happiness I felt when she said yes, she completes me. She is my best friend, my partner, my lover ā€¦ my happiness.”
