Casual meets Rock n Roll Winter Destination Wedding in Ireland

Americans Sean and John chose to travel to Ireland with a gang of family and friends to get married at Lisnavagh House in County Carlow. With the wedding being in February the weather was pretty insane – they even got a surprise snowstorm! They had a dress code of black and green which worked really well as it made for some really dramatic photos.

The theme was very much influenced by the season and location of the day. They wanted it to feel intimate, casual and fun with an edge of rock ‘n’ roll. “We were inspired by who we are as people for the wedding theme”, they told us. “We are from Los Angeles and flew across the world to get married. We are gay and we also didn’t have a traditional wedding party.”

A Winter Wedding Inspired by their Heritage with Just Six Guests

It may feel at odds to be sharing a winter wedding in June, but we couldn’t resist the beautiful yet simple details of Brooke and Matt’s November celebration. if you’ve pushed your wedding back to the winter, or you’re now planning to have a much smaller day, you will LOVE this.

Even before they were engaged, Brooke knew that when she got married she’d never have a big white wedding. “I’m a long time fan of Rock n Roll Bride and I think it was very much down to you that my partner and I had the confidence to make our wedding in a way that truly reflected us”, she wrote (also awww we love this!).

They decided to travel to Yorkshire from where they live in Adelaide , Australia, to have their intimate ceremony at Gibson Mill Hardcastle Crags, a National Trust properly in West Yorkshire. They had just six guests there with them. Afterwards, they returned home and had a bigger reception in Adelaide with 125 of their loved ones.

“We feel like travelling overseas was a pretty big move away from the traditional wedding format”, she said. “We certainly heard that as feedback by many friends and family but it was more than going overseas, everything we did had a reason, a family, cultural or historical tie. When we returned home and showed our stunning wedding video everyone said to us that they understood why we did it that way.”

Casual Winter Weekend Wedding with a Mustard Dress & Warm Colour Scheme

Their relaxed and colourful day was held at Donnelly River Village in South West Australia. Erin chose a mustard wedding dress and Glen, a smart casual combo of brown trousers and a matching mustard bow tie. The August wedding (which is winter down under remember!) played homage to the season with a colour palette of burnt orange, mustard and burgundy, particularly in the flowers. As a florist, having lots of beautiful arrangements was a must for this bride!

The wedding was a weekend-long celebration with an early morning ceremony on the second day followed by a brunch time reception. Afterwards their guests had a chance to explore the village. Then then hosted a dinner and wedding games in the evening.

“Our ceremony was meant to begin at 9:30am (it was 5°c but sunny), but due to a wardrobe malfunction (my zipper broke and I had to be sewn into my dress) I was 45 minutes late. This is where we realised that having an amazing celebrant is crucial as he was able to keep the guests entertained, along with our musicians. We had a lighthearted and fun ceremony, with tossing a coin as our way to decided who said their vows first. Our musicians (family friends) played a song they wrote specifically about us while we signed the registry. Everyone had doily cones filled with dried rose petals to throw as confetti.”

Rooftop Winter Wedding in Kansas City

Jessyca and Hulon met in a plus sized fashion Facebook group and decided to meet up in person… and the rest, as the old cliche goes, is history. They arranged everything for their nuptials themselves. As an operations manager at their own music studio (825 Studios) and VP at Hulon’s record label, Jessyca was certainly well qualified for the job!

They chose to have a winter wedding because they, and their families, love colder climates. Having everything outdoors and on a rooftop was a brave choice but it worked for them! They were married at On Broadway, a rooftop event space with amazing views of the downtown Kansas City skyline.

A New Year’s Eve Warehouse Wedding with Neon Signs & A Sequin Dress!

Sophie and Matt’s December wedding encompassed everything that love about the festive season: Sequins, sparkle, lots of booze and party food (complete with a Krispy Kreme tower of doughnuts instead of cake!) The atmosphere was celebratory from start to finish.

They were married at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. “We wanted everyone to have lots of fun and feel relaxed”, said the bride. “We had a lot of neon and the venue was a red brick, industrial warehouse so the day did have a I laid back, industrial feel. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram but really, the venue was the inspiration for the wedding. It was an iconic representation of our beloved city, Manchester, and really didn’t require much decorative input from us – though we did have a lot of fun making things like the table centres, table plan, name cards and floral arrangements.”

Emotional Tattoo Artists’ Festive Wedding

Lydia and Mike, who met in a tattoo shop and now work together as tattoo artists, were married on December 7th in Leicester. They wanted their day to reflect the season so they picked lots of Christmassy and winter-inspired details. The bride in particular loves Christmas and history which also influenced their venue choices.

“Our wedding was themed around the winter season and elegance”, said the bride. “Our ceremony venue, The Guildhall of Leicester, is so atmospheric by itself, especially with the fire roaring. Our ceremony was conducted by our city council registrars, this was perfect for us as we aren’t religious. The addition of personal vows and a reading from my grandma made the ceremony very special to us. We absolutely love the Guildhall as our ceremony venue as it has so much history (Shakespeare performed there!) and felt honoured that we could have our ceremony in such an important building for our city.”
