‘Til Death Do Us Part Themed Cabaret Wedding

Rachael and Miguel were married at The Asylum Chapel in Peckham. They fell in love with it as soon as they saw pictures of it online and when they went for a visit they booked it on the spot!

“We met when I booked him to design me a tattoo!” began the bride. “It was a huge side piece and I chose him as his book really stood out. When I went to meet him and discuss
the design it really was love at first sight for us both. It took another year before I finally
plucked up the courage to ask him out though, he didn’t think it was appropriate or professional to ask me himself!”

“The overall theme was ‘Til Death do us part’ and even the invites had a skull bride and groom on them! Our guests were really excited when they received them as they knew from the start that it was not going to be a traditional wedding. For our seating plan my artist friend and I made a graveyard scene in an old picnic hamper, complete with wedding vow gravestones and moss, each table was named after a wedding vow!”

Scottish Wedding with a Purple Haired Bride

Eilidh and Peter had only one thing in mind for their October wedding: To have a damn good party! The day was held at Dalduff Farm in Aryshire, Scotland, and they were very much inspired by their Scottish heritage for their decor and theme.

“We wanted a wedding with plenty laughter, fun, food and frolics with our nearest and
dearest”, said the bride. “What ended up on show was a Scottish barn wedding filled with meaningful vows, beautifully smelling flora and fauna foliage, lanterns and a musical rumpus with our ceilidh band at night. One guest said they felt like they were in a whiskey advert; I liked that.”

“I grew up in the Scottish Highlands on the coast, and Pete in the roving fields of Ballymena Northern Ireland. We both wanted a completely relaxed, countryside-chic vibe, with the flexibility to choose our own ideas. Dalduff Farm allowed this to happen.”

They put a lot of effort into all the little details. “The little details did count”, she continued. “Having the venue for three days, a close friend conducting the ceremony, hiring the farmhouse accommodation, thefirepit with marshmallows, our own bar, sparklers, wild  flowers, winter scented candles, candid photography, confetti cannons, Hog Roasts, wedding feasts, and a band that don’t ‘do’ weddings… that’s what made our wedding special.”

Informal Skull Themed Wedding in Manchester

Beth and Martin were together for 11 years before they decided to get married. They wanted their wedding to be a relaxed, informal city wedding with skulls as decorations. They also wanted to focus on everyone having an amazing day. They decided to not have a table plan or a formal sit down meal.

“We took loads of inspiration from Rock n Roll Bride,” explained Beth. “We were on there daily looking at different ideas. All of the weddings featured really inspired us when we started planning, as it was great to see that there were other couples out there doing what they wanted! We also didn’t want the wedding to be too formal as it wasn’t our vibe. We didn’t have too much of a strategy when planning, if we liked it, it was in the wedding!”

Romantic, Industrial Wedding With a Homemade Pink Dress & A Last Minute Venue Change!

When it came to wedding planning, Alice and James worked on finding a middle ground between their very contrasting tastes. They wanted their wedding to celebrate their differences. They looked at colour as a way of showing their different viewpoints and the end result was a mix of a few different themes. They served vegetarian and vegan food, and they had a vegan wedding cake.

“Our tastes couldn’t be more different,” began James, “so we didn’t really go for a specific theme. Our inspiration was using our contrasting tastes to our advantage. Alice loves pinks and mauves, I love navy and greys, so we looked at showing both these viewpoints and uniting it all with a rose gold to match our engagement and wedding rings. Alice loves layers, complex details and decoration, while I am into stripped back, ‘essentials-only’ type of aesthetics. Food and music were also a huge inspiration and something we felt we HAD to get right.”

A ‘Funfest’ Festival Wedding with 16 Bridesmaids!

Lizzy and Ed met because of Glastonbury so of course they had to have a festival themed wedding. They named it FUNFEST! “Not only do we love music festivals but without them we’d have never met”, explained the bride. “We were introduced by a mutual friend that we both met completely separately at Glastonbury. He thought we were made for each other so he played cupid and introduced us, and turns out he was right.”

They had originally planned on a London pub wedding, but when they couldn’t find a venue big enough to accommodate their 200 guests, they decided to change their idea completely. “My dream wedding had always been to throw a mini festival but I just didn’t think it would ever be feasible with the cost and logistics”, Lizzy continued. “However there were absolutely no venues suitable in London for the number of guests we wanted and we made a firm deal that we wouldn’t budge on the guest numbers. Our friends and family are so important to us that this wedding was a way of us showing us how much we loved them so to have to cut people wasn’t an option. This is when we decided to look into hiring a field and organising a festival style wedding.”

Eclectic and Floral Wedding

There’s one thing you’re all going to notice right away with this wedding – the bride’s amazing, and enormous, flower crown! I mean, wow!  The best part is she made it herself. “After being quoted different prices from several places, my sister and I decided to give it a go ourselves”, Robyn explained. “We ordered the artificial flowers online and bought a headband from Claire’s Accessories. After a few nights of pinning and gluing, on occasions having to de-glue our fingers and thumbs from the headband, we finally mastered the skill of using a glue gun and the headpiece was complete!”

The rest of Robyn and Lewis’ wedding, held at Eaves Hall in Lancashire was just as colourful. “Our wedding was a bit of a mix of vintage and floral an a quirky edge.  We both love anything olde worlde so any pictures or ideas we saw from Downton Abbey or out of books we added to our collection.”
