Fairytale Hindu/ Sikh Wedding with a touch of Nightmare Before Christmas

Following an engagement overlooking beautiful, clear Croatian waters, Karampreet and Arun married in August 2019. Arun is from a Hindu background and Karampreet is Sikh, so as well as the western civil ceremony, they had a Hindu one with a Milni pre-ceremony ritual where the families greet each other. The day was a real fusion of cultures done in their own way!

Apart from a stunning florals around the bandstand, they let the venue do the talking in terms of decor, although they did sneak in a nod to Arun’s favourite film, A Nightmare Before Christmas, with their cake topper! 

Karampreet’s white dress was by Justin Alexander, bought via Supernova Bridal. “I went dress shopping with my sister who spotted the dress in a shop in Datchet. It was the second dress I tried on and I knew immediately it was the one for me as it made feel special. I felt like a princess in that dress, marrying the love of my life, like a real-life fairytale.” Arun used the opportunity to wear a tux for the first time, and their bridesmaids wore dresses from ASOS

A Simple yet Edgy Lockdown Elopement Planned in a Week!

Emily, Shane and their five doggos were not going to let a little thing like a worldwide pandemic stop them from getting married. So, before lockdown came into full effect in Australia, they decided to postpone their big wedding that was planned for July and to elope with their five dogs in tow!

With the help of their super accommodating vendors, they managed to pull an elopement together in under a week! Unfortunately their original photographer was in full lockdown and unable to shoot their new date, thankfully they found Carly Co. who was available at short notice.

“The best thing about our wedding was that we had our five dogs roaming free, and we didn’t have the usual wedding attire. Rin, our celebrant, made our ceremony so personal, I was genuinely surprised. The questions we answered let her tell our love story better than we can tell it ourselves. I thought I would shed a tear but didn’t think Shane would at all. Rin had us both laughing and sobbing which I didn’t think was possible. Our ceremony was perfect in every way. It was so laid back and easy to just be in the moment.”

A Tattoo Meets Rose Gold Inspired Leap Day Wedding

Brendon and Danielle married on February 29th 2020 in the grounds of Ravenswood Homestead, in Victoria, Australia. They were inspired by Danielle’s champagne pink dress for the theme of their wedding. It was picked up while on holiday in Vietnam, a sample off the rack, from a random bridal store. This, juxtaposed with their tattoos on full display and deep burgundy in the florals made for a theme that was personal to them.

“I didn’t want things too matching and soft,” explained Danielle, the bride, “and we wanted to kick out the misconception that people with tattoos can’t be tasteful! I think the style of our wedding and food showed we had class, while still being true to our personalities.”

A Wild New Jersey Wedding with Drag Performers, Gothic Touches and Mutual Weirdness Forever

The Art Factory, a specious historic loft space in New jersey, was the ideal location for Jordan and Matthew’s creative wedding, They wanted complete control over the day and to not have any restrictions on what they could or could not do, and so the blank canvas, dry hire space was ideal.

Their main goal for the wedding was to throw a wild party while showing off their gothic and alternative personal style. They were able to bring in their own alcohol (which saved a pretty penny) and they were able to party until 5am – wow!
