Eighties Themed Cinema Wedding Inspired by The Wedding Singer!

Leighton and Amy love anything related to the 1998 film The Wedding Singer, so used that as a jumping off point for the inpso for their day! Their reaction, after they got engaged and kept being asked what their colour scheme and wedding theme were, was that they aren鈥檛 matchy-matchy people and wanted to tap into all things quirky and do things their own way.

Held in Southwold in June 2019, the bridal party began their wedding day with a dip in the Suffolk sea – a far cry from the normal champagne breakfast affair! The day continued with more quirks; their ceremony was on stage in a cinema, they hired a bouncy castle and sumo suits for a post-wedding duel and they lost traditional, fancy wedding transport in favour of walking through the town from the ceremony to reception venue, causing quite the stir with the locals as they went!

Classic Meets Emo: A 拢10k Monochrome Wedding

Although they had a smaller than average budget, Jess and Nathan wouldn’t let that stop them having an incredible wedding. The bride loves anything modern and sleek and they were both massive emo kids, so they decided to combine these two aesthetics for their day.

They were married in Manchester, at the city council, and had their reception at Barca Bar. They also included Alan Partridge references (something they also bonded over on their first date) naming their tables after his quotes and walking out from their ceremony to Cuddly Toy by Rochford from Alpha Papa (an Alan Partridge movie).

Patr贸n, Puppies and a Dip Dyed Dress

Sian and Neil’s wedding featured all the things they love: Tequila, their dogs and the importance they put on their relationship. With a groom that always said he never wanted to get married, when he finally surprised his bride and asked her to be his wife, they knew the only way they were going to do it was entirely on their own terms. That meant ignoring tradition wherever possible.

They were hitched in June at Bysshe Court Barn in Surrey, and because they had their legal register office ceremony a few days before, they had complete freedom when it came to the day. “At the legal wedding we just had my little brother and Neil鈥檚 sister as our two witnesses”, Sian explained. “It was very low key and we went for coffee afterwards. We didn鈥檛 recognise this as our wedding day, we did it so that it gave us the freedom to do our actual wedding day exactly how we wanted it. We didn鈥檛 have to follow any rules or tradition. Therefor we found a celebrant to perform our ceremony in front of all our friends and family on our big day.”

Autumnal Art Deco Disco Wedding

Julz and Andy almost cancelled their wedding… until they discovered Rock n Roll Bride (!!) Planned in just six months, the couple wanted a day that played homage to the art deco styling of their venue and the season in which they said their ‘I dos’. The bride told us, “The magazine pretty much saved me while I was wedding planning. I almost cancelled the wedding so I could grow my hair and lose weight. I couldn’t find any brides at all that looked like me… until your mag came into my life so thank you!”

They were married in October at Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, an old art deco theatre. Although it was undergoing a massive renovation and development, it was very easy to dress because it was already is stunning. “I come from a creative background so found it really easy to dream up a ‘vision’ of how I wanted the place to look”, explained Julz. “I wanted flowers, food, disco and autumn rolled into one.”

A Low Key & Intimate Ceremony with Matching Tattoos & a Surprise Garden Party Afterwards

Zara and Alex didn’t want a big fancy wedding, so they decided to just have an intimate legal ceremony with a few witnesses and their baby daughter present. Following this was a pit stop at the groom’s tattoo shop for some matching ink, and from the bride’s point of view they were done. However, the groom had other ideas though, and he secretly planned a big garden party for all their loved ones in his mum’s back garden.

“We held a mini wedding in the garden that I had been planning for months”, Alex explained. “My mum scoured charity shops collecting vintage plates and d茅cor to create a wedding-like experience in her beautiful garden. She managed to create a super special DIY wedding for us all all to enjoy and Zara was absolutely blown away, it was a great success鈥 with lots of drinking!”

Colourful Theatre Themed Wedding with llamas, Alpacas & a Pug

Bringing their musical love of musical theatre and colour into the day, Kayley and John were married at Deepdale Farm over the summer. They also had a number of very special guests, namely their pug, Frank, and a llama and alpaca who joined them for photos! All the decorations were designed and made by the couple themselves. Their particular favourites being the banners with musical quotes on.

“We bought a big roll of fabric, cut out each banner and acrylic painted the quotes”, Kayley explained. “We鈥檝e got one up in our living room now to remember the day. We also created ‘theatre programmes’ for everyone who came to the ceremony which had ‘cast’ photos in (our families and wedding party), our story, a series of photos we had done at Sunderland Empire Theatre, and a collage of all the shows we have seen together. They also had a little bit explaining about the favours we had. We donated to the Mind charity to get sunflower seeds for our favours as mental health is a big part of our life and something we care a lot about.”
