“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).

Pastel Goth Unicorn Wedding for $1500!

I was trying to figure out how to best start 2018 with a BANG, wondering what would be the perfect post that would start as we mean to go on for the year ahead… And then I laid eyes on Suzi and Ivan’s fantasy, fairytale and UNICORN THEMED WEDDING and the decision was basically made for me. This has to be one of the coolest weddings I’ve seen in a long time! They got tattoos, the bride wore a floral purple dress and they even a real life unicorn for goodness sake. Oh and very the best part? The whole wedding only cost $1500 (AUD). Truly incredible.

They were married in Glen Innes, New South Wales in August. They met when the bride moved to the area. “I had moved to Glen Innes from the city and was hating country life”, she explained. “I figured since I don’t like cowboys, I’d never find someone in this tiny town. After a year living here, I was asked by the elders to be the new church door greeter since I ‘look cool’. So that first Sunday night I was merrily shaking hands and welcoming people to the service when I spotted a golden Adonis across the car park heading my way! I mumbled a hello through my drool and then turned to who was next to me and said ‘Dibbs! That one’s mine!’ Six months later he finally came around and decided to ask me out haha!”

Glitter, Unicorns & A New Year’s Day Nightclub Party!

It’s unusual for me to start a real wedding feature by sharing the video, but Maliya and Dimitris’ film, made by BeingThere Videography, is such a beauty that I can’t help myself. Put this full screen, turn it up loud and enjoy!

Any wedding where the bride rocks pastel pink hair, they have a unicorn wedding cake and they party in a nightclub is all good in my book. Doesn’t this look like the most fun EVER? They were legally married on Christmas Day and had their party on New Year’s Day!

Unicorns, Food Trucks & An Explosion of Colour

Jessica and Don’s Iowa wedding was colourful, fun and unicorn inspired! They planned the whole thing from Chicago, where they live, which had it’s challenges, but they still manged to pull off a fun, laid back get together which totally felt like them.

“When I was planning the wedding, I really just wanted it to feel incredibly bright, fun and geometric”, began the bride. “It’s since been coined the ‘unicorn garden’ so I think we achieved our goals!”

The wedding took place at The Des Moines Social Club in Iowa. They loved the space, but planning it as a destination wedding had its challenges. “The Des Moines Social Club is just a phenomenal venue. It’s actually an old firehouse that has been rehabbed as a community centre and venue. Our ceremony was in the courtyard – which is actually just a really cool parking lot surrounded by incredible graffiti.”

Turn Your Bridesmaids into Rainbow Bright Unicorns with Curious Coco!

When it comes to looking for bridesmaid dresses, it can be tricky to find anything really, truly unique. Sure, if you want to do the mismatched thing, or the multiway dress thing, or the 1950s reproduction thing it’s getting much easier, but if you want your maids rocking something really wacky and different it can be pretty difficult. While the high street is also a great place to look, it can also be hard to make sure all your girls match and look like bridesmaids, rather than just wedding guests.

Ellie and Sean’s two-day wedding took place in Eddinburgh. They were married at the Lothian Chambers and hosted their reception the day after back at their own home.

“We knew we wanted to incorporate the colours yellow, purple and grey in to the wedding and for there to also be some unicorns”, said Ellie. “Other than that there wasn’t really a theme.”

“We decided to have our wedding photos taken in the Museum of Scotland. I really wanted some photos under the T-Rex (I played roller derby and my derby name is TeaWrecks) and I’m lucky my husband is my silliness partner in crime and agreed. We walked each other down the aisle, we wanted to start our marriage as we mean to go on, as a team.”
