Laidback Vegan Wedding in Brighton

Violet and Jacob didn’t choose the plant life, the plant life chose them. And that’s why their super chilled Brighton wedding day was a totally vegan affair with tons of gorgeous donuts, pizzas and other goodies. They married in a low key, intimate ceremony with just 35 guests at Brighton Town Hall, with part one of their reception following in the coffee shop where they first met. By approaching their styling in a laidback way and their family and friends all pulling together to provide various services, they managed to create this gorgeous day for under £5,000.

Violet said, “Our aim for the wedding was to have a really nice day and throw a big (ish) party in celebration of our love, surrounded by our favourite people and eating great food. To us it didn’t make sense to eat food we’d never eaten before, or throw a party somewhere we weren’t familiar with, so we chose to give our guests food we knew we loved and took them to places that meant something to us. Part of our reception was held at Bond St. Coffee, where we met, which is owned by a friend of ours. We’ve met so many wonderful people here, some of whom were at the wedding. Most of our suppliers were friends of ours and people we know, so I guess friendship and community was a big part of it. We also didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen in the traditional way, and there was no seating arrangement, so it was all very relaxed.”

Mid-Century Inspired Rock n Roll Wedding with a DIY Kissing Booth

Georgia and Vince’s wedding was hosted in the most beautiful little chapel we’ve ever laid eyes on. It was brought to life by their love of the 50s and 60s and their lovely personal and romantic day.

“Vince and I share a love of all things mid-century,” Georgia explains, “including the music, the fashion, the hairstyles, and the cars. When we became engaged, we both knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding and took influence from our love of the 50s and 60s.”

Georgia looked stunning in a beautiful polka dot tulle rockabilly dress from Pixie Pocket and a retro style veil from Me and My Girl Vintage, which sat atop her perfectly curled hair and vintage-inspired make up. Also – JUST LOOK AT HER LOVE HEART NAILS! Fierce and we’re feeling it.

Vince wore all black from Ferrari Formal Wear, with a black polka dot pocket square. We also love that Georgia and Vince got ready together in the morning, before Georgia got changed for an intimate first look.

Festive Scottish Wedding Inspired by Christmas Markets

Oh baby, do we have one gorgeous wedding to share with you today! Sophie and Stephen were married at The Byre at Inchyra, a beautifully restored, rustic barn set in 150 acres of private parkland in Perthshire, Scotland. Taking place on December 2nd, they went for a subtly festive theme, inspired by Christmas markets, with some lovely personal touches.

“Christmas is a very special time of year for us, hence why we got married in December”, began the bride. “We met through a mutual friend at the Edinburgh Christmas market and each year we return to the same spot on the same day to have a kiss. We also got engaged on Christmas Day a year after we met.”

“The inspiration for the wedding was the atmosphere of a Christmas market. We wanted Christmas but without it involving the snowmen or Santa… It wasn’t really about Christmas it was about us but still had to capture that warm festive feel. We used simple inspiration from German markets and the Edinburgh market with all the green pines and lights all around – it was magical.”

Relaxed Pink Pub Wedding with a DIY Dip-Dyed Dress

Jennie and Scott’s Putney pub wedding was a riot of colour and a day of totally relaxed fun. The couple were completely chilled about the day – even when things weren’t going to plan – and you can see how beautiful the results were in the gorgeous pictures from Kat Forsyth!

They had both their ceremony and reception in the Duke’s Head, Putney. Alongside a theme of “pink, grey and very, very relaxed”, the couple drew inspiration from the pub itself and its quirky atmosphere and décor. Their ceremony was held in a quaint room upstairs, which was decked out in pink and white puffy decorations and confetti balloons and mismatched chairs. The sash windows were thrown wide open for a stunning September afternoon, all soundtracked by classical cello versions of old rock songs. Despite Scott messing up his vows when promising to be faithful, and Jennie hardly being able to get the ring on her finger due to the heat, they said “We giggled, we laughed, and it was perfect.”

A graphic designer by trade, Jennie did loads of bits herself, which both saved money and helped make it super personal. Finding the little details to add to the day was her favourite part of planning. “Each thing brought a little smile!” she explained. “Being a graphic designer and hands-on person, I made everything I possibly could. I did the bouquets, the guestbook and little confetti bags were made by me and so were the cake decorations, which still sits in the house today.”

Handmade Candy-Themed Wedding at Valentine’s Mansion

Danielle and Lee’s wedding was a masterclass in how to make the slightly kitsch incredibly cool. Their wedding, fittingly held at Valentine’s Mansion in Ilford last summer, was candy and sweet-themed, and featured lots of DIY projects, a rainbow colour scheme, and some badass portraits that make them look like a super-cool indie band…

Describing their theme, Danielle explains. “We didn’t want anything particularly traditional. No real flowers, just lots of colour and sugar!”

And sweet and saccharine it definitely was, even from the start. “The invitations were handmade in the form of a colour-pop chocolate bar wrapper, which we then printed onto a Galaxy Bar and posted to everyone! The chair ribbons, bouquets, bunting and so on were all rainbow coloured. All the centrepieces were candy jars and whirly pops, and we had candy trees on the mantelpieces and a large pick ‘n’ mix buffet.”

Colourful, Tattoo Art Themed Wedding on a Farm

Claire and Trystan met in an art store in Truro, so of course their wedding was going to be all about the colour and the creativity! They pulled their rainbow, vintage, tattoo-themed day together for just £5,500.

The couple described their wedding vibe as, “Traditional tattoo art mixed with bright, bold colours and a hint of vintage. Trystan is a tattooist, and we are both collectors of tattoos and tattoo art, plus we have spent several years travelling around getting tattooed by our favourite artists. We knew we wanted our wedding to reflect this about us as it’s a major part of our lives that we love. The best man and most of the groomsmen are all tattooists too, so it all came together very naturally. The day was a true reflection of who we are as people.”

Their venue was the beautiful and rustic Thornsett Field and Farm in High Peak, Derbyshire. Claire said, “Kerry, who owns the barn, and her husband were incredible! They really go out of their way to ensure you have the perfect day. We started the set-up on the Monday before the big day, and they were on hand to offer help throughout. We honestly couldn’t have asked for more.” And having a wedding on a farm means loads of cute animal moments! “Pugsley the Pug greeted our wedding guests on arrival, Mabel the sheep took a starring role in our wedding pictures, and my beautiful dogs, Louie and Otis, caused chaos throughout the day – including a point at the end of the night where Otis was on the dessert table! It was animal madness in the best possible way.”
