Colourful & Casual, New Jersey Beach Wedding with Hawaiian Shirts Encouraged

If you’re a lover of colourful weddings then baby you are going to flip your lid over Catie and Joe’s big day… especially the bride’s incredible outfit! Pink brows to match her hair? Hell yeah! we have so much love for this! They were married in April in New Jersey. They wanted a wedding that celebrated them but also included their daughter, Annabelle (Catie even held her in a sling during their vows – so sweet!)

The couple met when they were teenagers, through mutual friends, and although Catie says she fell in love with Joe instantly, they didn’t actually make it official for seven years! “The inspiration for our wedding was our relationship”, she explains. “As cheesy and cliche as that sounds. we wanted the day to be 100% us. We didn’t want typical wedding themes and ideas, because that isn’t us.”

Emotional Tattoo Artists’ Festive Wedding

Lydia and Mike, who met in a tattoo shop and now work together as tattoo artists, were married on December 7th in Leicester. They wanted their day to reflect the season so they picked lots of Christmassy and winter-inspired details. The bride in particular loves Christmas and history which also influenced their venue choices.

“Our wedding was themed around the winter season and elegance”, said the bride. “Our ceremony venue, The Guildhall of Leicester, is so atmospheric by itself, especially with the fire roaring. Our ceremony was conducted by our city council registrars, this was perfect for us as we aren’t religious. The addition of personal vows and a reading from my grandma made the ceremony very special to us. We absolutely love the Guildhall as our ceremony venue as it has so much history (Shakespeare performed there!) and felt honoured that we could have our ceremony in such an important building for our city.”

A Party Hard, Rock n Roll Tel Aviv Celebration with a Red & Black Dress Code

If you’ve picked up a copy of my book, then you may recognise Dafna and Eylon as their Las Vegas elopement is one of the real weddings featured inside. I LOVED those images and their story so much! Although they always wanted to get married in Vegas, they also wanted to celebrate with their loved ones back home in Tel Aviv, so it was the perfect excuse to have for a second wedding. The day was held at Bascula, a cultural arts centre that is home to a circus.

You are going to LOVE this wedding. The couple got ring finger tattoos during the ceremony, the groom wore a red veil and they partied so hard someone broken their arm! Now THAT my friends, is Rock n Roll!

“We named our wedding FESTILOVE, a celebration of Rock n Roll, art and of course love”, explained Dafna. “Originally we wanted a Halloween wedding, but had to accommodate our family from abroad so we scheduled it in December during Christmas vacations. Since we couldn’t separate completely from our Halloween fantasy, the design featured a lot of skulls, spiderwebs and endless amounts of red roses and hearts. Accordingly, we asked the guests to follow a red and black dress code.”

Punk Rock Inspired Wedding with a Tattoo Shop Reception!

Music is a huge part of Silja and Andy’s everyday lives – Andy plays in a band professionally, and the couple met when he was playing at a psychobilly festival. Their love of swing, jazz, punk rock and psychobilly influences everything in their life including their everyday style, so there was no question that this is the styling they would choose for their intimate London wedding in December 2018.

Silja wore a custom dress from Lace Marry via Etsy. She paired it with her signature burgundy velvet high sole creepers by TUK Footwear, and a birdcage veil also from Etsy. Andy wore an outfit borrowed by their best man’s extensive vintage clothing collection.

Laid Back Las Vegas Wedding with a Neon Graveyard Ceremony & Pizza Reception

When Brit and Joe decided to get married, they knew pretty quickly that a big wedding was not going to be for them. So, they decided to scrap their plans for a big wedding back home in England, and flew to sin City with their nearest and dearest instead. They really just wanted a laid back day where they could feel like themselves, get some great photos and eat pizza!

“We didn’t really set a budget”, began Brit, “But we didn’t want to spends loads either. We actually booked and planned a wedding in the UK, even though we wanted to go away and do it, but I think we were doing it for others and not ourselves. We then realised a big expensive wedding wasn’t what we wanted at all so we cancelled everything and and booked a three week trip to Vegas, LA and San Francisco.”

An Enchanted, Luxe Wedding in a Rainforest inspired by A Cinderella Story

Believe it or not, the 2004 rom-com A Cinderella Story was the starting point for the inspiration behind Gary and Amy’s August 2018 wedding day. “I’ve always loved the scene where he takes her for a dance in a gorgeous rotunda,” said Amy. “It’s filled with fairy lights and white roses and looks so magical, so that was the starting point for the vision for our day!”

Combined with Amy’s minimalist yet luxurious style, no expense was spared in making sure everything was perfect for their day. “I wanted luxury,” said Amy, “and Gary was more than happy for me to take lead with style. I wanted a day that looked modern, sleek and luxe. We spared no expense when it came to florals, personal touches and keeping everything stylish. I think the attention to detail really made the wedding what it was.”
