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

If you don’t immediately love 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 of 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. “Pilo 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 at Trulli di Montaltino, a holiday rental in 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 in 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. 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 … my happiness.”

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.”

Glam Nashville Elopement with Dinner & a Drag Show!

Amy and Sonia don’t have the most conventional beginning to a relationship; they met while Amy was already married (to a man) but knew shortly after being introduced that she’d met her soulmate in Sonia. The couple chose their hometown of Nashville to elope in, simply because there’s nowhere else they’d rather have been.

“We wanted to become united in the city that united us,” explained Amy, “we loved the idea of having photos in front of all our favourite Nashville murals, and wanted it to be a day that was authentic to us, too.”

They were also inspired by old school Hollywood glam, with Amy wearing a dramatic low back, white sequin, floor length dress, paired with silver glitter pumps and old Hollywood waves and vintage rhinestone hairpins. Sonia carried on the glam by rocking rhinestone lapel pins and her own cowboy boots with her suit.
