Antique Fairytale Inspired Destination Wedding on the Almalfi Coast

Jennifer and Sacha achieved the impossible for their June 2019 wedding – they managed to bring 31 of their closest friends and family members from three different countries to celebrate with them in Italy! Inspired by both their European heritages and the music and art that they love, they chose to get wed overlooking the beautiful Amalfi Coast in an antique fairytale themed celebration of love, beautiful surroundings and their nearest and dearest.

With a $15,000 budget, the couple chose to have both their ceremony and reception out on the terrace at the Marincanto hotel. They were married by the maid of honour’s mother under a magnificent arch of flowers.

Nostalgic Camp-Themed Wedding with a Weed Bar

Scott and Jackie’s main aim with their May 4th wedding was to stay true to what they love and care about. They grew to love camping together and got engaged while on a cross-country road trip, and that became the core of the theme – made by hand, a little rough around the edges, mismatched, down to earth, but most importantly to them – a hella good time!

When planning their day, they made a pact – anything that felt contrived, they would nix, and replace it with something that felt more like them instead. They served pies instead of traditional wedding cake; they had no groomsmen or bridal party, just their loved ones showing up for them. They held a spontaneous parking-lot party instead of a first dance and embodied a true to form DIY attitude. They didn’t hire a planner or coordinator and did everything themselves!

Autumnal Vintage Fairground Wedding

Inspired by their incredible venue, Preston Court in Kent which comes complete with a vintage carousel, Sammy and Thomas planned their October wedding with fairground and circus vibes. Their attention to detail was second to none, especially when it came to the design of everything. The centrepieces, the cake, even the homemade favour boxes all perfectly complemented their theme.

The ceremony was held in front of Preston Court’s Dutch Music Organ in their main barn. Their rings were brought to them by a barn owl called Ollie which was a complete surprise for all their guests.

Fun, Lowkey Wedding Celebration at Glastonbury Festival

Lizzie and Nick were halfway to planning a traditional white wedding when they decided to do a 180 and decided to get hitched at Glastonbury instead! They wanted to create a joyful, silly, stress-free celebration of their love that they’d remember forever, and choose their happy place their location. Armed with £1000, they did the admin part in London the morning of the wedding and then hotfooted it down to Somerset to have a friend officiate a ceremony that they wrote themselves.

They decided against having a defined format for their ceremony in order to keep things experimental and most importantly, fun! Lizzie wrote a poem for Nick, and Nick in turn wrote a speech. With Sean Paul announced as the surprise headliner for the John Peel stage that day, their friend did a reading of the lyrics to Temperature between speeches – not your regular heartfelt wedding reading, but it turned out sweet nonetheless!

Valentine’s Day in the 90s Meets True Romance

Amanda and Josh met while travelling in Cambodia three and a half years ago. They fell in love (with each other and the country) and didn’t want to leave to decided to stay and run a restaurant together! They ended up staying for two years before returning to England (where Webs is from). However due to visa hold ups and budget constraints, they were married in Philadelphia where Amanda lived before they met.

They took their $3500 savings and got hitched in the most ‘them’ way they could think of. That meant the 90s, Valentine’s day and tattoos. Also, for Amanda in particular, her style guidance came by way of Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord, Lady Gaga and Alabama Worley of True Romance!

A Modern & Colourful Wedfest

Alex and Jody love going to concerts together, so it seemed fitting to them to run with a festival theme for their May 2019 wedding. Armed with $15,000 and a whole lot of creativity, they set about creating a day that celebrated colour, their personalities and love!

The whole wedding was a DIY project, and they wanted to insert a festival/music theme wherever possible. They had a lot of help from family and friends – from the Holy Matrimony donut wall to the bedazzled guitar and drum card box, the hand-painted tambourines that the bridesmaids held in lieu of flowers to the seating chart and table decor. Instead of real flowers, Jody diligently arranged tonnes of artificial silks she picked up in bulk. “It was a lot of work,” she said, “but we made a big list of everything that needed to be done and our friends and families helped set everything up on the day of.
