Colourful, Mexican Themed Wedding with Wrestling, Skulls and Cacti!
October 17, 2019
Vicky and Phil's May 2019 wedding was inspired by their love of colour, Lucha Libre wrestling and cacti. With a budget of £13,500, their venue - West Bay at Titanic Hotel, Liverpool - was their biggest expense, but they loved it as soon as they saw it and were so happy with how they ran the day. It also included the catering, which was a big thing to tick off their list!

Alanah and Joey’s June wedding had a whopping nine themes in total - Toy Story, WWE, Nightmare Before Christmas, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, DC and Ghostbusters! A mashup of all the things they loved, it created an eclectic, geeky gothic themed day where the bride wore black and the groom wore white - and it suited them down to a tee!
Rustic, Relaxed, Autumnal Wedding… Inspired by Cheese, Coffee and Wrestling!
March 15, 2019
Steve and Justine’s wedding day was a full of surprises, for the couple and their guests. The whole groom's party had to spend the morning of the wedding moving everything inside as they were hit by a snowstorm - in October! Steve’s gift to Justine was two replica WWE tag team championship belts. Instead of traditional champagne for welcome drinks, they served coffee that was ground by the couple themselves. They announced their pregnancy during their speeches, and had a grime/rap artist as their evening entertainment!

Heather and Fraser met at the London School of Lucha Libre, with Fraser wearing a flying squirrel outfit, so you can already tell their wedding is going to be pretty spectacular. Set in the to-die-for Asylum Chapel, and featuring 120 papier mâché animal masks and a wedding gown made from a Dolly Parton fancy dress outfit, their eclectic, weird and wonderful celebration looks like a riot of fun. And yes, there is Mexican wrestling - of course. What do you take us for?!
Don’t Tell The Bride: The Real Story aka Mike & Becky’s Mexican Wrestling Wedding
October 31, 2012
I have a love/hate relationship with the BBC Three show Don't Tell the Bride. On the one hand, I love a voyeuristic nosey at other people's weddings (hello! Wedding blogger criteria number one) but on the other, the obvious sensationalism of shows like this can often get a bit much. I usually sit watching the show wondering if the groom really plans the whole thing himself and if the real truth of the matter is that the production company tell him exactly what to do so they can have the usual drama that seems to follow the programme around. But mostly I wonder if the brides really have no say on ANYTHING. I mean surely you'd give him a few subtle hints beforehand, right?!
