A Lesbian Batman & Snow White Got Married

Clare and Amy had humanist ceremony followed by a big reception with all their family and friends at the start of December, but they didn’t get the legal bit sorted out at the same time. Just before Christmas, the couple needed to attend Warwick Registry office to sign the papers. However, they didn’t just want to go down in their wedding outfits or jeans, they wanted to make it fun and so opted to hire their photographer again and dress as Batman and Snow White, because why the hell not, right? A few of their theatre friends and besties came along, also dressed as their favourite Marvel or Disney characters and they got some truly memorable photos of the day.

“We are two lesbians dressed as Snow White an Batman getting married… I’m not sure you can get more alternative than that!” the couple laughed. “Although we had our more formal day, neither of us wanted to wear our wedding clothes for the second one. We didn’t conform, and just did what made us laugh.”

French Elopement at Home that went XXL on Flowers

Astrid and Emilie chose their own home as their venue for their May elopement. Hiring L’Autre Saison des Fleurs, they went all out on the florals who added bright, colourful arrangements all over their home to create these photo shoot worthy images.

The couple met in school and became best friends, but it wasn’t until they were much older that Astrid confessed her feelings to Emilie. Luckily she felt the same and they began dating in 2013, “From friendship to love, we built our lives together”, they told us.

“While we were preparing the wedding, we thought all along that there were no coincidences in life, just some rendez-vous”, Emilie continued. “We learned that it was useless to plan our lives in every tiny detail because fate will always have the last say. So, for the wedding we decided to let the professionals around us show us what they were imagining for our day. All we wanted was to exchange our vows in intimacy. After all, at the beginning of it all, we never thought we could have a life together, but yet here we are!”

Pretty Woman Inspired Shoreditch Elopement

I have a question – could Terriann and Brittany BE any cuter?! “We met 12 years ago,” they told us, “when we were young, wild and free on Birmingham’s gay scene. We went on one date but our lives took us on very different paths. Little did we know that we would meet again and oh what a meet it would be! It was love at first sight, we both never knew what love was until we found each other again. We had a lockdown date that turned into being locked down together indefinitely.”

They decided they wanted an intimate elopement so that the whole day was for them and no-one else. They wanted something cool and wild, where their love was the star of the show. “We were inspired by the line ‘Wild women do and they don’t regret it,’ from the Pretty Woman Soundtrack by Robby Cool, The Angel Singers. We didn’t have a plan for the day, letting love and excitement lead the way. From heart shaped glasses, posing in the streets, stopping traffic so our boots could do the walking to smoke grenades in the back streets of Shoreditch, surrounded by graffiti and sunshine.”

Rollercoaster: Bright meets Retro Amusement Park Elopement Inspo

When Emily Zamora of Simply Wandering Photo got in touch with this styled shoot submission, we loved it not only for the gorgeous, fun pops of colour, but also for the unique styling concept! Emily told us; “The incredibly talented Abbey Rose Event Design with the concept of styling a wedding after a song.”

“Growing up in a household of musicians, music has always been a large part of Abbey’s life, so turning to music to inspire her was an obvious step. The song she chose was Rollercoaster by Bleachers. She wanted to incorporate the fun upbeat melody by adding in pops of colour and fun/vibrant elements throughout the day. And what better place to host such a celebration than at an actual working amusement park with rollercoasters.” We’re sure lots of you will resonate with Abbey’s love of music – is there a particular song that could inspire your day?

An Intimate Festive Meets Tropical Elopement in Atlanta

It’s September which means it’s now perfectly acceptable to talk about Christmas, right!? If you are planning your own festive wedding this year then read on because Katrina and Aerion’s 2020 celebration is a masterclass in how a small Christmas celebration can be just as beautiful and special as one with all the trimmings!

Spending “as little as possible”, the couple planned their elopement with one goal in mind – to be married by the end of it! They explain, “We met when we were both out separately with friends at the only lesbian bar in Atlanta. Katrina had just been through a break up, saw Aerion from across the room, sent her friend away to get a drink and seized the opportunity then to approach her while she was dancing. We ended up dancing all night together.”
