Summer Wedding with Dried Flowers & Rustic, Natural Elements

Despite getting married in the summer, Catherine and Dicky they decided they wanted a cosy feel to their June wedding with lots of of dried flowers, dark colours and dim lighting. They planned the day in just seven months, and so didn’t go as ‘all out’ on the theme as they said they could have, but to them, their simply styled day was absolutely perfect.

A Crazy Colourful Wedding with a Leopard Print & Dinosaur Cake

Shell and Mark celebrated their wedding on 5th June and while they had a lot of friends and family that couldn’t be there, they still wanted to go all out and have the colourful wedding of their dreams for their ten guests. As a glamping blogger, and using Rock n Roll Bride as their main source of inspiration, Shell’s vision was for a camping meets colourful party at Glamping Thorpe in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The bride made all the décor and centrepieces, she customised the wedding favours and collected vintage coloured vases. She made close to 100 multi coloured and leopard print pom poms which were used in the wedding arch. Little Cherry Cake Company made their incredible cake, but the dinosaur cake topper was DIY too.

An ‘Out of this World’ Movie Night Themed Wedding

Lindsey and Laura’s had an ‘out of this world movie night’ theme for their May 2019 wedding, They combined Lindsey’s love of space and astronomy with Laura’s love of media and the movies and came up with something truly unique. Each table was named after a film, they had a space themed cake and everything décor wise was homemade.

Lindsey wore a custom coloured dress dyed to match the aurora borealis colours and she covered her shoes in Swarovski crystals to sparkle like the stars. Laura’s suit was a purple with teal and pink check to match. They had their rings custom made by an independent jeweller and had each other’s finger prints engraved inside them.

Soft & Girly Self-Shot Elopement with a Rock n Roll Edge

With a budget of £2000, a guest list of four (including their two Dachshunds!) and the bride’s own talents as a wedding photographer, Samantha and Antoni set to planning their January elopement. Samantha took many of the photos herself, but The Wedding Bee (the groom’s sister!) snapped the stuff that she couldn’t. Samantha actually loved that she got to edit her own wedding photos too!

The bride’s dress came from ASOS, her jacket was customised by Niamh Designs and Kathryn’s Flower Barn did the flowers. They wanted their day to have a rock ‘n’ roll twist but to still feel girly and vintage inspired.

Festive Wedding with a Black Disco Ball Dress

We can’t quite believe we’re over halfway through the year already. That means the festive season will be on us before we know it! If you’re planning a December 2021 wedding then you’re going to love looking through Sophie and Chris’ photos – we’re particularly enamoured with her black disco ball dress which came from Jenny Packham!

The day was held at Manor Estate, Wiltshire on 12th December, so the space was already decked out in festive finery. The couple continued the theme with greenery, gold accents and glitter reindeer down the middle of their single long table, more greenery and LED tealights hanging above them and plenty of fairy lights everywhere. The place names were little green crackers and their cake was a traditional Christmas fruit cake (made by the bride).

“We knew we wanted a winter wedding”, the couple told us, “so when the mother-of-the-bride (who is an incredible florist) suggested drying and then spray-painting alliums with gold and glitter as the basis for all the flowers, we loved the look and took it from there.”

Summer Garden Party Wedding at Elmore Court

Richard and Melvin went all out for their July 2018 wedding. They hired beautiful Elmore Court, a grade II listed mansion in Gloucestershire, as their venue. Then, 10 days later, they had a second party at a private members club in London (where they had their first date) for 250 people who couldn’t attend the main event!

“We had a summer wedding built around a garden party with an informal vibe and a strong musical presence”, the grooms told us. “We had opera singers in the service and a jazz band with friends (and one groom) singing during the afternoon garden party.”

Although they grew up thousands of miles apart – Melvin from the Bahamas, Richard from the UK – both their grandfathers were farmers and both sets of families had strong links to farming and the countryside. Although they now live in London, they both love gardens and the countryside so wanted to bring this into their day. Richard’s dad even grew some of the flowers which were used in the arrangements and the self-designed stationery had wildflowers on as a nod to the theme.
