An Autumn Wedding Inspired by Halloween and True Romance

Although they didn’t want a themed wedding, Kate and Max were inspired by autumn, Halloween and their favourite movie, True Romance, for their October 2019 wedding. The timeline of their day was in reverse, and although this wasn’t what they initially wanted, it was a happy accident and in the end they were really pleased that they did it this way. Plus, it meant Kate was able to justify two wedding dresses!

She explains, “We left it quite late to book a registrar, so ended up having our celebration in a ‘reverse’ order to a traditional wedding. We had our wedding breakfast before our ceremony in the afternoon (the only time we could get a registrar for). Initially we were disappointed, but then realised at nearly every wedding we had ever been to, people were always starving hungry throughout the ceremony! So, it actually worked out really well.”

Gothic Vegas Wedding with Some Traditional Elements

Choosing October for their wedding was the perfect season for McKenzie and Cory who planned a Nightmare Before Christmas meets gothic wedding. They booked The Artisan Hotel in Vegas as their venue and the fact that it was decorated in an eclectically gothic style already, made it a choice they were happy they made.

“We called our wedding theme gothic chic”, began McKenzie. “Our ceremony actually took place out front of the building under all the lit up trees. From the start we knew we didn’t want to have a traditional wedding where everyone had assigned seating and they would have to sit through a bunch of traditional things. We just wanted a ceremony, then a huge party and we got exactly that!”

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.
