Florence and the Machine Meets Groovy 1960s Inspired Wedding

Steph and Craig didn’t necessarily have a specific theme for their wedding, but went for an eclectic mix of their personal style – Craig in an Oxblood bespoke suit and Steph in a flower child inspired WIllowby by Watters dress which gives us all the Florence and the Machine vibes!.

The day was held at The Drake Commissary, a restaurant in Toronto, and they wanted any décor they brought in to compliment the space. They went for a mid-century meets groovy aesthetic through their signage (designed by a friend) and brightly coloured florals.

All-Black, Moody & Romantic, ‘Evil Boho’ Wedding

Jackie and Hondo wanted a moody, romantic wedding but with no rules or traditions. They referenced Rock n Roll Bride magazine for inspiration throughout their planning process and felt so inspired by looking at everyone’s creativity and non-traditional themes.

The day was held at The Art Factory, a historic loft space, in Paterson, NJ. “I always pictured an all-black wedding and we both wanted a non-traditional space”, Jackie told us. “Our inspiration stemmed from doing what WE liked, and not what was ‘expected. We would describe our theme as moody, romantic and ‘evil boho’!”

A Black & Red Circus Themed Wedding

The Greatest Showman was a big inspiration for Jenn and Sean’s Pittsburgh wedding. They took vintage carnival elements, mixed it with a black and red gothic aesthetic and created magic! They even had circus performers at both the ceremony and reception. Stilt walkers acted as flower girls and when they said ‘We do’, a fire breather blew out a big fireball!

“Even though it was December, we really wanted an outdoor ceremony so we offered warm drinks and had people come outside right before the ceremony was set to begin,” Jenn told us. “The ceremony went beautiful. Since Sean has two kids from previous relationships and I do as well, we did a lighting of the Yule Log to signify our families becoming one. Stilt Walkers threw flower pedals and we had a juggler and a fire breather as well.”

Mystical, Glam Goth Winter Wedding

Kate and Chris were lucky enough to win their wedding though a giveaway! Together with their suppliers they then planned the wedding for a year. They wanted something a little bit mystical, gothic and glam and wanted to use lots of black as well as other darker colours. They had crystal balls, potion bottles and books as part of the décor. They also used a lot of black lace as well as vintage table wear.

The day began slowly and quietly with the couple getting ready together in their AirBnB which they rented for the weekend. They exchanged cards and small gifts as Kate’s son, Adrien, and niece, Quinn looked on.

Kate wore a v-neck dress with a leather jacket and went for a glam make-up look to match. Chris wore a simple all-black ensemble which really popped against the fresh layer of snow that had fallen earlier in the week.

Winter Beach Elopement with Celestial Elements and A Floral Decorated Jeep

MaryAnn and Braden got married on the beach at Cape Hatteras on December 9th 2020. It was an intimate elopement which was very much inspired by Rock n Roll Bride. “You guys inspired us so much while we were planning”, the bride told us. They also played homage to their love of adventure and the colours of the night’s sky. They used a lot of blue, purple and silver to give the look of both the starry night sky and the ocean, and used wintery textures in the florals.

Their wedding date was exactly four years from the anniversary of their first date and their first date definitely inspired the wedding. They started the day by driving to the beach together in their Jeep which the florist bride had decorated with flowers, “The Jeep is very special to me and has been in our family for years. Most of our first date took place driving around in the Jeep!”

“I am a florist so flowers are a huge part of my life! We specialise in unique and fun arrangements and it was so fun to get to do my own flowers after years of helping other brides bring their vision to life.”

Botanical & Nature Themed South African Clifftop Winter Wedding

Julia and Jeran chose the remote, seaside village of Misty Cliffs, Cape Town, for their intimate winter wedding celebration. They found a house on Airbnb which they rented and included lots of creative, handmade touches. Their loved ones were involved in arranging flowers, making the food and cake as well as sharing special words for the couple during the ceremony.

Julia hand-embroidered her aqua top which her mum also wore on her own wedding day, and embellished Jeran’s purple shirt in brilliant green botanicals. Her skirt was made by a friend.

They wanted their wedding to be as far away from a cookie cutter, traditional day as possible. The bride explains, “We wanted to focus on the beauty of the natural world, without forgetting about the universe beyond our planet! Although maybe it’s more accurate to say we wanted a touch of the weird and otherworldly magical. The colour scheme of forest greens and mints and then violets was also a big part of the inspiration. I was very inspired particularly by those specific succulents that are green but also have hints of purples.”
