A Backyard Wedding with a Family-Focus & Cardboard Cut Out Flowergirls

Like most couples who wed last year, Kayla and William had to make some big changes in order to have a small pandemic-friendly wedding. They were originally planning a big, country club wedding for August, which has now been postponed to 2021. However as the pair have lived apart for 4 1/2 years of their five year relationship (the groom lived in Ohio and the bride in New York), they just wanted to be married already. Their kiss after the ceremony was the first time they had kissed in over 200 days!

They planned a small ceremony in the bride’s bride’s parent’s back garden. Obviously not everyone could attend, including the flowergirls who live in a different state, so their family sent life-sized cardboard cut outs of them wearing the dresses they had bought to wear for the wedding! Neighbours watched from their back porches and even dressed up to celebrate with them from a distance.

Fiesta meets Vintage, Kitsch & Colourful Wedding

Alex and Sarah stuck to their guns for their August 2020 wedding, and despite planning it for over two years, decided to go ahead anyway. “When we originally booked our Thursday date, it was because we both work in the music industry so summer weekends we’re usually working at festivals,” the bride told us. “Not only did it end up being way cheaper than a weekend wedding, but our friends and family were more than happy with the idea of making a long weekend of things as they had plenty of notice.”

“As the year unfolded and it became apparent that we weren’t going to be able to have the celebration that we originally planned, we decided to go with the flow and have our day as best we could, which was of course stressful at times with the ever-changing goalposts. Reduced numbers meant we ended up being able to claw back some of our budget, which was a relief as in the planning we’d nearly doubled our intended spend!  We now have a nice little starter for a honeymoon, once it’s safe to travel again.”

Gold Coast Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Themed Wedding with Red Roses Galore!

Inspired by their love of vintage and a rock n roll aesthetic, Corey and Elle’s March wedding was so authentically ‘them’. In fact, nearly all their guests remarked it was exactly how they imagined their wedding to be! The couple lucked out with their venue – the Mobile Barber Shop Depot in Queensland – a warehouse space stuffed with vintage leather chesterfields, antique fabrics and unique brick walls provided the perfect starting point for their day.

In fact the only décor that needed adding was the florals. “I’m obsessed with red roses,” explained the bride, “and always knew I wanted a big installation. Our florist Xavier Nicolle delivered just that!”

Rustic & Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Wedding

Krystle and Mike married at Upwaltham Barns, Sussex last year. They decided early on that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them and they added their own personal touches at every opportunity! From the DIY elements to the fact that a real life rainbow appeared at the end of the night, this wedding was a Rock n Roll Bride wedding through and through!

“We went for a rustic and vintage feel to the day,” Krystle told us. “The location helped us a lot deciding when the look and vibe, but once we found our venue I wanted to add a touch of 20s flare mixed with the rural countryside.”

Las Vegas Elopement with Elvis, a Classic Car Photo Session & a 1980s Vintage Wedding Dress

Aaron and Pheobe’s goal for their Las Vegas elopement was to have all the Vegas cliches, and they weren’t at all sorry about it! They wanted to be married by Elvis and to drive out to the desert in a classic car for photos. They flew out from Australia for their wedding and did it entirely on their own terms.

“We were never going to have a traditional wedding”, Phoebe told us. “We already have two children together so getting married was never high on our priority list. We both hate being the centre of attention and so the thought of having a big wedding was terrifying to us and not our idea of fun so that’s why we chose to elope. Although it was sad to not have our immediate family and friends celebrate with us, we chose what would make us the happiest and most comfortable on our special day.”

The bride wore her mum’s wedding dress and headpiece from 1980, making it her own with gold boots and a leather jacket from ASOS which she had ‘only fools rush in’ embroidered on the back. “I think one thing that stands out the most about our wedding is the fact I wore my mum’s wedding dress”, she continued. “The dress was custom made and worn by mum her on her wedding day 38 years prior. It was definitely very special and made my mum very proud even though she wasn’t there to witness. After our photo session was over we were dropped back at the hotel and we had a quick outfit change and went and had burgers for dinner and then decided to get a’ Vegas’ tattoo each so we would always remember our special day.”
