Romantic, Industrial & Glam Wedding in Australia

Rikki and Kent share the same birthday of April 5th, so when it came to their wedding day they threw caution to the wind and decided to combine birthday and wedding celebrations and throw the biggest party of their lives! “The only thing you actually NEED to do for a wedding is say like, two sentences,” explained Rikki. “Everything else is entirely up to you to make into the best day of your life.”

They decided to spend the whole day together, along with their photographer, hitting up the arcade, playing pinball, sharing hot wings and margaritas with their bridal party all dressed up in their wedding gear before getting married later that night.

Budget Friendly, Movie Themed Halloween Wedding with Fancy Dress Galore!

Josh and Shandre weren’t afraid of being a little kitsch and over-the-top with their wedding theme. They wanted to tie together a movie theme, with Halloween, while keeping a very home-y atmosphere. They asked their family and friends to dress up as their favourite movie or Halloween character so it felt less like a traditional wedding and more like a house party celebration, which is exactly what they achieved!

Held at the Tuscana Conference Centre in Midrand, South Africa in October 2018, the couple had a $3.5k budget to bring their big day to life. They undertook a lot of DIY and concentrated on the things that mattered!

Rustic Meets Rock n Roll Woodland Barn Wedding with a Woodland Fairy Bride

Leslie and Dillon both love hiking and camping, so knew they wanted an outdoorsy wedding from the get-go. With the help of family friends’ pasture land, complete with idyllic stream and woodland, and a $10,000 budget, the couple set about creating the natural, rustic day of their dreams.
