Casual Tasmanian Elopement on International Non-Binary People’s Day

Paris and Danni’s elopement may just be the ultimate anti-wedding! Re-planned in just 48 hours thanks to ever-changing COVID restrictions, they held a private ceremony at a cottage in Meander, Tasmania with only their closet friend, a photographer and celebrant there with them. It all worked out great though as their new date, July 14th, is actually International Non-Binary People’s Day!

“We met and developed our friendship through indoor rock climbing, mostly bouldering (no ropes!)”, Danni told us. “For our wedding we were inspired by nature. We wanted to have a nice little holiday where we could be connected with each other and our environment. We basically did none of the expected things. We wanted our wedding to be an honest reflection of our authentic selves, a continuation of our relationship rather than a massive milestone.”

DIY Wedding with Colin the Caterpillar Cakes & Axe Throwing

Kelz and Will wanted a completely relaxing and fun wedding day, without the taking the typical approach to a traditional celebration. They told us, “The ceremony was partially inspired by pagan and natural aesthetics and our love of the outdoors and woodlands, the reception was inspired by a medieval feast and the party was inspired by us being metalheads!”

They chose the woodland at Edgeworth Polo Club in Gloucestershire for their ceremony, clearing a large circle and walkway from the reception tipi. Kelz explained, “We lined the walkway and the circle with fallen branches, logs and sticks that we cleared from the woodlands which created a really cool stick fence and decorated it with lanterns and jars of flowers. We also built our arch using large branches that we found in the woodlands which we then dressed with paper flowers and material matching our chosen colours.”

Gothic Red & Black Wedding With Peaky Blinders Groomsmen and a Hint of Horror

Taking inspiration from their own home décor along with weddings featured in Rock n Roll Bride Magazine and a shared love of horror films, Jodie and Matthew were determined to create a day to remember. Planning through various lockdowns, their day was a chance for friends and family to meet up again. 

“We loved hearing the excitement about our wedding as it was going to be the first big get together since COVID had started meaning there were people we hadn’t been able to see in ages attending. There was a buzz around the big day for over a year and to see everyone’s faces light up when they could see what we had put together, watch us get married and be able to enjoy themselves surrounded by friends and family was such a lovely thing to witness.”

Relaxed ‘Peace & Love’ Themed Wedding

Inspired by wildflowers, woodlands and the 60s aesthetic, Jessica and Scott were married in September in Huddersfield. A huge part of their day was the music as they wanted to use it to create the perfect atmosphere for the celebration.

As Jessica told us, “We had a lot of music from The Beatles, and basically the line-up of Woodstock! I walked down the aisle to a string quartet version of Here comes the Sun and we walked out to the drinks reception to The Ballad of John and Yoko. Our first dance was to the song Life Eternal by one of our favourite bands, Ghost.”

The bride wore a short House of Mooshki dress with yellow Dr Martens and pearl accessories. Her bridesmaid were also in yellow, choosing tiered broderie style dresses from Boohoo.

Simple Wedding Day With a Bride In Red, Chip Butties & Five Wedding Cakes

Maria and Joe wanted a day that was all about simply celebrating with friends and family; reuniting and having a great time. Maria told us, “We kept the day very simple for our guests. Only my dad and I walked down the aisle (the bridesmaids were seated with the guests instead) and we had a small drinks reception and then went straight for dinner. We didn’t have speeches, we didn’t have a first dance, and we cut the cake to signify the start of the evening.”

The couple had a £10,000 budget, and saved money with DIY projects, drying flower petals for confetti, making the table runners and putting together flowers for the reception themselves. Joe also chose a suit he could wear again, and the pair opted for high street outfits.

Maria told us, “We were very lucky to have lots of talented friends support us with things like signage and flowers. we saved money by not spending on things we felt we didn’t need like favours and invites – we used a wedding website and sent save the dates digitally.” They also chose five different cakes from Costco, and cut the red velvet one.
