Fairytale Wedding in Belgium with Hints of Unicorn

Yoko and Koen met at the University of St Andrews in Scotland (fun fact, Yoko’s bridesmaid met her soon-to-be husband at the same time as he and Koen were friends!) which also inspired the fairytale theme of their wedding. The bride, from the US, and the groom, from Belgium, chose Castle Saint Hubert in Ronse (Koen’s hometown) as their venue.

The bride explains. “Koen and I both received our Master’s degree from the University of St Andrews which was where Prince William and Kate Middleton had also studied and met. To tease me, my friends would often ask if I had met MY Prince Charming so, it came naturally for us to have a fairytale themed wedding! We also incorporated unicorns, the national animal of Scotland, in a subtle way throughout the wedding such as in our wedding logo, Koen’s cufflinks and photobooth mask.”

A Burning Man Ceremony & Melbourne Reception with a Light Up Wedding Dress!

GASP! Kelsie and Andy’s wedding is about to knock your socks off because Keisie got hitched in a LIGHT UP DRESS, Andy looked just as swag in his iridescent sequin tuxedo and they had photos atop a giant unicorn sculpture at Burning Man. I meaaaaaan, this is pretty much what all Rock n Roll Bride wedding dreams are made of!

Their Burning Man ceremony took place in August and their reception back home was in November. They were legally married on ‘Tutu Tuesday’ at Burning Man by the host of their theme camp (Barbie Death Camp) ‘Doc Pyro’, who is ordained. He stood inside life-sized Barbie box to marry them.

“We were already planning on going to Burning Man when Andy proposed”, Kelsie began. “I had the idea to get married there when I was listening to a Burning Man set by one of my favourite electronic producers, Monolink. Why not combine our absolute happiest place in the world with the happiest day of our lives? I never wanted to have a traditional wedding with a large bill. I couldn’t understand why you’d not spend the money travelling the world and get married in a place where there is an almost infinite amount of beauty, art, music and community instead? I used Rock n Roll Bride for a lot of inspiration as well as Instagram and Pinterest for outfit ideas.”

Colourful Botanical Themed Festival Wedding with Shetland Unicorns & Food Trucks

Vicky and Rich’s magical festival wedding day was full of fun, colour and a whole lot of creativity. They had real life unicorns (OK, OK so Shetland ponies with horns on but same-same), Pimms on the lawn, a baby pink ice-cream van and delicious food served from some of Cambridge’s most popular food vans. There was a colourful botanical theme to the decorations which were all made by the bride, her mum and the groom. Vicky’s mum, who owns a haberdashery shop in Cambridge, also added some colourful personal touches to Vicky’s tea-length WED2B dress.

The day started with blessing held in the woodland adjacent to the village green, and although the wedding took place in June, the bride walked down the aisle to a Christmas song – I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday by Wizard (her favourite!) The space was decked out in fairy lights and an archway covered in hundreds of crocheted flowers made by a friend.

Surrealist Themed Wedding at Aynhoe Park

Can we PLEASE take a moment to mentally prepare ourselves for what we’re about to see because HOLY SMOKES, this wedding is eeeevvverrryyyything!

Melissa and Luke got legally married at a London register office, then flew to Burning Man for a second ceremony and finally they planned an epic three-day wedding celebration on the groom’s birthday at the incredible Aynhoe Park!

They chose Aynhoe Park for “its take-your-breath-away effect and fantastical interior”, which includes Murano chandeliers and a very impressive collection of taxidermy (including a unicorn!) After two nights here they continued the celebrations at Soho Farmhouse for a weekend of rest and relaxation, and to tie in to their first meeting at another Soho House property.

Magical, Playful & Colourful Unicorn Wedding

There’s only one thing more magical than a wedding I think… and that’s a wedding with a unicorn! Issy and Brad’s summer celebration was themed around the pastel colours that the bride in particular really loves, and when she had the idea to get a unicorn there too, there was no stopping her!

“It was SO hard to find a human height unicorn!” she laughed, “I almost gave up and went for a small one from a theatre prop hire company, until I luckily searched on Facebook and found the lovely, newly set up Unicorn Prop Hire Events! It was driven down from Essex in a horse box, I like to imagine people seeing a unicorn head through a window of the horse box and wondering if they were seeing things!”

“Casual Unicorns” Wedding Planned in Three Months

It’s not everyday that you get a first look involving a unicorn mask, but for Stuart and Angelica that was one of their must-haves – and quite rightly so. Their July wedding, described as “casual unicorns” with a dash of Scottishness, was organised in three months, and mostly long distance across the Atlantic too. Despite that, it also features a secret Alice in Wonderland twist and some pretty incredible gothic architecture too.

“Our day was set in the beautiful architecture of Glasgow City Chambers Building, smack in the middle of Glasgow”, said Angelica. “it had a very unique feel to it from the start. We sat all the family down in the Kelvin Room of the ceremony building whilst I arrived with my bridesmaids and went into a private room for our first look. We’re both very happy we did the first look before walking down the aisle, as we’re pretty sure one of us would have fainted!”

And you might faint when you see the photos – Stuart and Angelica both wore masks for their first look, and giant rubber unicorn and horse masks at that. Stuart explains: “When we met in Australia we both had these stupid masks on, so we incorporated them into the first look, and this inspired the unicorn association.” Underneath that unicorn mask, Angelica has some pretty rad hair herself – with gorgeous lilacs and blue-y tones it reminds us of the Northern lights, and this smoky purple colour palette continued into her outfit. Alongside a bunch of lavender, Angelica wore a blue stoned ring borrowed from her cousin, and her grey-toned wedding dress was a lace-topped David’s Bridal design, upcycled using her sister’s prom dress and a belt and bow made from tartan scraps (leftover from Stuart’s kilt).
