Covid-19 Protest Meets Rock Concert Wedding in Israel

Alva met Shay while she was living in Amsterdam and he had travelled over from Israel for the Amsterdam Tattoo convention. Although they lived in different countries, they kept in touch afterwards and became great friends. A few months later Alva moved to Isreal to be with him and start their lives together. Four years later they had their first child, Neo, and six years after they met they were married.

Being an unconventional couple, having a wedding with any form of tradition was never on the cards. Their outfits were Victorian meets gothic inspired, as this is how they dress on the daily.

Alva’s dress came from a gothic shop in Amsterdam (she bought it four years before and kept it because she knew it would be her dream wedding dress as soon as she saw it!) and she wore it with shoes from Dolls Kill. Shay’s jacket was from the same store and his boots were New Rock.

Pink meets Rustic, Child-Friendly Barn Wedding

As parents themselves, Arron and Casey based their wedding around how they felt when they took their kids to other peoples weddings. “I wanted everyone to feel comfortable,” the bride explained. “It didn’t matter to us if children were running around crazy, in fact we put everything into making it the sort of atmosphere that our friends and family would want to bring their children along to.”

A series of unfortunate events with their original reception venue meant that, with just three weeks before the big day, the couple’s bridal party rallied around to find them a place to party – a disused cow-shed on a very much working farm wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but Arron and Casey didn’t let that perturb them!

“It was hard work organising everything but we wouldn’t change a thing,” explained Casey. “I threw my all into DIY-ing decorations – the table plan, centrepieces, I filled the whole barn and marquee with stuff I’d made – and people still talk about our wedding a year later.”

Relaxed, No Frills Brooklyn Bridge Park Wedding

They say inspiration can hit you at any moment and Hannah and James were inspired to get married at Granite Prospects at Brooklyn Bridge Park by going on strangers’ wedding websites!

“We saw a couple getting married there and we thought it was a great place – plus it was cheap and easy!” explained Hannah. As a long-distance couple, getting married was particularly exciting for them as they often had to go long stretches of time living in separate countries. “It’s meant that now we can now live together in London with more sense of security and less fear of being separated again,” Hannah explained.

With a $10,000 budget, the couple didn’t necessarily have a wedding theme, but Hannah knew she wanted lots of white and greenery in her florals to give a fresh, natural, clean look. Above anything else, their aim was to have a day that was very representative of them – relaxed, no frills or fronts, just genuine and fun.

Gothic Glam Autumnal Wedding

With autumn just around the corner, we know you’re going to love swooning over Gemma and Neil’s big day. They were hitched in November 2019, and planned their day to reflect their mutual love of the season.

“Autumn is our favourite”, Gemma told us, “it’s absolutely beautiful in Cumbria at this time of year. Our decor had a symbolic nod towards new beginnings with fallen autumnal leaves below green foliage and freshly bloomed flowers.”

Choosing Three Hills Barn in Torpenhow as their venue, they were really able to make it their own. The couple did all the flowers themselves as well all of the decorations. The bride’s mum even made the cake. “We wanted the day to be as personal with as much meaning as possible”, she continued. “We had our favourite incense burning throughout the ceremony and in our decor we used items collected on our travels together. The autumnal leaves, pine cones and conkers all have their little stories attached, my favourite memory was collecting the conkers while walking alongside the river in Paris.”

An Iconically Rock n Roll Bride Inspired Las Vegas Wedding

A big, fancy wedding was never on the cards for Monya and Erika – it just didn’t appeal to them. So, when they began planning for the February nuptials it was Las Vegas or bust! The chose the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel as the location for their private vows, and hired Jamie Y for a portrait session at the iconic Neon Museum afterwards.

Monya wore a custom black dress made by a friend which had a high-low front, a long train and patches all over the sleeves. Erika’s trouser and vest set were also made by the same friend. They both wore personalised leather jackets made by The Mermaid Effect and with their wedding date and ‘Rock n Roll Wifey’ on the back! Monya even wore a necklace with an engraving saying ‘Rock and Roll Bride, Las Vegas February 29, 2020’ and they both rocked a ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ Rock n Roll Bride x Veronica Dearly pin!

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
