Alice in Wonderland Meets Festival Rave Wedding with Glitter, Sequins and Two Red Wedding Dresses!

Vicky and Peter’s big day was inspired by their joint love of parties, festivals and raves – and combined with Vicky’s love of circuses, Alice in Wonderland and randomness, it made for a unique and fun-filled day! “Our main impetus was that everyone have a good time, instead of just watching us have a good time like you see at lots of wedding. We wanted to throw a crazy party that everyone could enjoy!” said Vicky.

The couple were lucky enough to be able to call in a favour for the location of their big day and hold both the ceremony and reception in the gardens of the groom’s boss’ house, so it meant they were completely able to go to town with the way their day looked.

Kawaii Camp-Out with an All-Night Dance Party!

Dena and Dave met at a burlesque show of a mutual friend – Dena was filling in for a performer, dressed as a depression-era hobo complete with fake moustache which she wore all night while they hung out at an after-hours bar.

When planning their big day, they had one requirement in mind – a venue that wouldn’t kick them out at 10pm! Dena found a small summer camp property on Airbnb and the listing included some photos of a wedding there. They ran with the camp theme, inspired by movies like Wet Hot American Summer, and added in elements of things they love – childhood obsessions, all things kawaii, candy, and their mutual love of cats!

Their non-traditional venue allowed them to be completely free with their decor choices, and do exactly what they wanted. They DIY’d almost everything – from camp brochure invites to custom camp t-shirts, Hello Kitty candy centrepieces to My Little Pony Bouquets! They decorated the ceremony and reception spaces from scratch, including 100 tassel for the paper lanterns.

Bad Ass Sequinned French Elopement with a Lollipop Bouquet

I usually hate the word sexy but today’s elopement shoot is unapologetically sexy, and gloriously so. Concepted by photographer extraordinaire Buffet Froid, it’s dreamy elopement inspiration with two bad ass beauties who serve up true Rock n Roll Bride spirit.

In short, we love it!

“For me, elopements are ‘une ode à l’amour’ as we say in French – an ode to love,” Buffet says. “I am totally crazy about them, because they can revolutionise the way we celebrate love and weddings – they allow you to be totally free. It’s completely up to you! As a photographer, these are really special, because you end up shooting a precious instance at every single moment. I wanted to showcase this in a new and exciting way, so chose to do a shoot inspired by my love of metal – I like the boldness, and the free and wild state of mind that this music allows for.’.

Glamorous Boho Las Vegas Elopement… with a Rock n Roll Flare!

Alex and Tamara actually met in high school, and although it took several years for their relationship to blossom (despite Alex’ regular attempts to take Tamara on a date!) once they finally reconnected they were inseparable, and soon found themselves creating a life together.

The laid back couple hadn’t actually planned to get married, instead they had just booked a fun getaway to Vegas – in fact Tamara actually thought that marriage was never on the cards for them. “I always thought if two people love each other why do they need to be legally bound to one another?” said Tamara. But after three years of living together, two pit bulls and two children later, they thought it would be the perfect way to complete their family unit. They always knew they wanted a stress-free, easy-going wedding so a Las Vegas elopement was perfect for them – carefree and super fun, just like them.

Vegas-Inspired Wedding with Snazzy Suits, Sequins & All the Confetti!

Gemma’s ‘Suits and Sequins’ summary of her wedding to Guy is very apt, as in true Sinatra style they did things their way. Their Peckham wedding, shot by megababe Devlin Photos, was emotional and incredible from start to finish, from that sparkly green wedding dress (swoon) to the ‘Silly Old Beans’ sign they were married under, and the story behind their couples’ amazing portraits…

“There wasn’t a straight up inspiration for the wedding,” explains Gemma, who works in events as a day job. “With any event I plan I can find that really restrictive, and the beauty of a wedding is that you don’t have to have those boundaries. It can just be about you two, even if nobody else ‘gets it’. Having said that, we did ask everyone to dress in suits and sequins, and it was amazing how everyone turned up – the best dressed bunch of wonderful people.”

Speaking of sequins, Gemma looked every inch the glittery goddess in a spangly green number. “My dress was made by my bridesmaid, Nadia. I found the whole focus on what I was wearing quite overwhelming – it seemed to be everyone’s first question! Even though I left making it until a few weeks before the wedding, we had been searching for the perfect fabric for a few months. I wanted the perfect deep green so I felt like a Supreme. The dress shape was taken from a £12 New Look dress I loved the shape of on myself, which we then adapted.”

A Sequin & Glitter-Filled Wedding with a Carnival Atmosphere

So we all know a wedding day is, for the most part, all about the couple getting married. But when a bride and groom put just as much thought and effort into their guests having as much fun as they do, well you know you’re into a winner.

I also can’t go on any further without calling out probably THE most amazing bridesmaid outfits I’ve ever seen! Tulle skirts, oversized sequin playsuits, HELL YES, I am so on board!

Beth and Sam were hitched in style at Elmore Court in Gloucestershire. “We wanted to create a unique carnival atmosphere with lots of glitter and sparkles so every element had a glittery and sparkly theme”, said Beth. “The guests also contributed by dressing in sequins, sparkles and glitter which meant that our carnival theme was apparent across the whole day. We have been going to lots of festivals for many years and wanted to create a playful, inclusive day where everybody could let their hair down and laugh!”
