A Nature-Inspired Farmhouse Wedding in Spain with Pampas Grass & Vintage Sofas

Carlota and Pol are childhood sweethearts, though it took a few years for them to realise they were meant to be together. They reunited five years ago, and suddenly everything made sense. It was time for them to start a life together and to create a family. They were married in September just outside of Barcelona.

They were very clear what they wanted from their wedding day – a celebration of their love in a simple way. Dreaming of a place created by nature, their first stop was to find a venue. An old farm-house, full of history and surrounded by a forest, was the perfect setting for them. With warmth and authenticity as the cornerstones for the creation of their celebration, the feel of their day naturally unfolded.

Lithuanian Woodland Wedding with a Fairytale Picnic Reception

Tadas and Dovile adore nature and spend nearly all their free time walking, camping and relaxing in the great outdoors, so it was the perfect starting point for inspiration for their wedding. They wanted a day that was laid back, relaxed, and suited them as a couple.

They started their day by getting ready separately, and then meeting in the woods for a first look, quick dog walk and photos. They had initially intended to have an outdoor ceremony, but had to move it inside last minute due to the threat of rain. After a unique, personal service, they headed to their reception – a picnic by the lake! They had a relaxed afternoon with family and friends, enjoying good food, drinks and games.

A Romantic, Nature-Filled, Disney Fairytale Wedding with the Bride in Pink!

Stop everything. Immediately. Because you will want to give Mikinzi and Vance’s autumn wedding your FULL attention. This gorgeous pair were hitched at Cedars of Lebanon State Park Forest Lodge in Tennessee and had an intimate celebration that was all about their love of Disney and their love of each other!

“We both love Disney but didn’t want to go cheesy but be more inspired by the idea of a fairytale”, began the bride. “We both love being outside and we wanted to show how truly magical nature is.”

One of the most unique parts of the wedding was that the bride and groom actually exchanged their vows in private, before the ceremony. “We decided to exchange our vows in private before the ceremony. We both were a bit nervous and wanted to read them to each other first to get some of the emotion out of the way before reading them in front of everyone. It was so beautiful and great to just have a moment alone (aside from our photographer) to share our vows with each other. Its a moment I’ll never forget. Our ceremony itself was absolutely perfect. I walked down the aisle to our officiant playing the ukulele and singing So This is Love from Disney’s Cinderella. Our ceremony and vows were very personal and centred around our friendship, love and viewing each other always as equals.”

Nature Inspired Pot Luck & DIY Wedding with the Groom in Dungarees!

If there’s one thing that unifies and defines what makes a wedding a ‘Rock n Roll Bride wedding’ it’s that the couple getting married have a day that perfectly reflects them, their relationship, their families and their love. This is so very true for Tara and Shags who were married at their family’s property which sits alongside Muddy Creek in Delta, PA.

The florist bride did all the decor and flower arrangements (the flowers were all handpicked from their own home), they had their guests bring a dish for the meal instead of a gift, and the groom wore dungarees without a shirt underneath as this was the very outfit he was wearing when they first met. Sweet or what!? Even the entertainment was effectively DIY with the band, Bustle & Bump, being made up of their friends.

“We met at a friends wedding five years ago”, began the bride. “We had known each other for years but exchanged numbers at the wedding. He was shirtless, wearing bib overalls. I asked him what he had going on underneath and he replied, ‘boxer briefs’. We have been together ever since.”

“Our wedding theme was nature and white lace. I grow up alongside the river and couldn’t think of getting married anywhere else. I collected vintage amber glass for over a year in preparation along with yellow or green tablecloths. I wanted the lighting to be mostly natural and wanted to line the tables with candles. My inspiration was the peace and beauty of nature.

Village Fete Meets Woodland Vegan Wedding

Wheeler and Tylah’s love story reads like a millennial fairytale – they met on Instagram (!) when Tylah was moving house and posted that she hadn’t unpacked her kettle yet, so Wheeler offered her round for a cup of tea.

Their initial inspiration for their wedding day was the wedding from Twilight, though Pinterest then took over. Tylah and her dad stopped by the bar on their walk down the aisle for a quick shot of Apple Sourz, and as their big day fell on the same day as the World Cup quarter finals, a few guests were sneakily watching the England v Sweden match on their mobile phones under the table at dinner!

If you’re thinking “Damn, this is the most photogenic couple I’ve ever seen”, it’s for good reason – both Wheeler and Tyler work in the modelling industry. So when it came to deciding their budget for their big day, they knew the value of spending as much as possible on your photographer/videographer. They made the rest of their £10,000 budget work hard by DIYing pretty much everything apart from their outfits.

Moody and Romantic Autumnal Woodland Wedding

Travis and Romey met five years ago, and were obsessed with each other from the moment they laid eyes on one another. It took a year for them to pluck up the courage to make a move, but once they did – the rest, as they say, is history!

Their focus for their wedding day was to choose what they liked, and to make their day unique to them. Their venue, Haycroft Farm, allowed for them to have their humanist ceremony in the beautiful pine forests on the grounds. It was performed by Romey’s sister, which made for an extra-special and emotional moment.

“The ceremony was my favourite part of the day,” said Romey. “Walking arm in arm with my dad through the forest to the clearing where our ceremony took place, was an amazing feeling. Then seeing all the people I love in one space, looking at me with smiles on their faces really filled me with so much joy. Finally, seeing my husband with tears rolling down his face at the end of the aisle absolutely so me off – I could barely get through reading my vows! It all felt like a dream.”
