Breathtaking Enchanted Forest Themed Wedding with Skulls, Dinosaurs & Apothecary Vibes

You are going to LOVE this wedding, we just know it! Just you wait til you get a load of all the decorations…!

The inspiration for the styling of Hollie and Dan’s big day all stemmed from Hollie’s My Big Day Bridal dress. “I’ve always been a bit of a goth girl at heart,” Hollie explained, “so I wanted our day to feel dark and dramatic but still be romantic and beautiful.”

The dress in question was a beautiful black tulle and floral embroidered overlay gown. Hollie paired it with a jewelled headpiece, laser cut shoes and a custom printed jacket by Princess Crocodile Designs, who also made a mini version for the flower girl!

Eclectic & Colourful Wedding Inspired by Their Own Home

Catherine and jack were inspired by their own home, and their love of colour, for their wedding day. “Our home is crammed with all sorts of weird and wonderful artefacts from a huge disco ball (no home is the same without one right?) to life size monkey lights”, Catherine began. “We literately packed boxes and boxes of things normally displayed in our house to use at the wedding.”

“We also went to a HUGE French flea market about six months before the wedding and bought things we liked that we knew would go in the house but also the wedding. I got an old battered toy horse with no mane because I liked him and when I pulled the trolls hair out to put succulents on them, the hair unravelled into a perfect Mohawk fit for a Rock n Roll toy horse! The safari print screen was an old screen we got from the market, it was in a bit of a state so we sanded it down and treated the wood before I found that wonderful fabric and reupholstered all the panels. The little projects were just endless but it’s what I love to do!”

Both the bride and groom also made a real effort with their outfits. They both had something personalised and made especially for them. Jack wore a suit from Moss Bros but he paired with with a custom made waistcoat from Jack Bunneys, after he saw them featured in Rock n Roll Bride magazine! Catherine worked with the team at Calm Amongst the Chaos on her one-of-a-kind dress and embroidered veil. She wanted something colourful and with lots of personal elements. “I worked with Frances and the team to design my dress from scratch and they were wonderful!” she explained. “I walked into their shop by accident because I was drawn in by the copper pipes and succulents in the window, I felt that they would understand my personality. I bombarded Frances with pictures of shapes, materials, colours embroidery (lots of cats and plants) and sparkles and she managed to create something fabulous!”

Rustic, Relaxed, Autumnal Wedding… Inspired by Cheese, Coffee and Wrestling!

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!

They weren’t focusing on being different for the sake of being so, though – their inspiration was to take all the things they loved and fit them all in somehow. With the countryside, music, their families, wrestling, cheese, beer and coffee as sources of inspiration, their day as as eclectic and personal to them as could be.

Eco-Conscious, Festival-Inspired Wedding Weekend with Rave Reception

When Jess and Chris decided to get married, they found that the place they drew inspiration from the most was seeing how other people had done things their own way. They chose elements that they had enjoyed from other weddings, and did away with traditions they felt had no meaning to them.

“We made every decision together and questioned everything ‘typical’,” Jess explained. “If we didn’t see the point of something, we didn’t do it, and we replaced it with something meaningful to us.” This meant switching an elaborate cake which no-one would eat for a bountiful buffet of local cheeses. They picked their flowers based on what was local and in season, and made blackberry whisky as their wedding favours as something that people would enjoy, rather than leave behind.

In lieu of a particular wedding theme, it was important to the couple that they spent their budget on what mattered most to them and that, in line with their day-to-day principles, they didn’t consume more than was necessary or create a load of waste. They borrowed tablecloths, vases, hampers and fire pits from friends who’d used them in their own weddings. They made several hundreds metres of bunting from old sheets and shirts. Flowers were arranged in vintage jugs, borrowed vases, even an old watering can and large mayonnaise jars. With their venue boasting 360 degree views of the Sussex countryside, they felt it needed little embellishment for the sake of doing so, and were happy to allow the beauty of the local surroundings to shine through.

Rustic, Welsh Barn Wedding with Dashes of Disney

Aly and Dan knew they didn’t want anything too formal or traditional for their wedding, and have always loved a rustic vibe, so with Sugarloaf Barn in South Wales right on their doorstep, they didn’t have to go very far to find their perfect venue! Located in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, it was the perfect setting for their relaxed day.

As the barn is pretty much a blank canvas, the couple really enjoyed being able to put their own stamp on things with regards to decoration. They went in hard with the DIY; three days of prep in the lead up to the wedding, to be precise! They made hundreds of paper lanterns and pompoms to hang throughout the venue, covered it in fake flowers and fairy lights to make it completely their style. They even thought to make a little cosy corner for their guests to relax in, covering hay bales with blankets, cushions and glass jars filled with candles to create a laid back vibe.

Teal & Turquoise Vegan Wedding in Vegas

Claire and Alex love gaming. From board games to apps and video games, they’re always at it so this was the first thing they knew had to play (boom boom) a big part in their Vegas wedding. They hired retro arcade games and had giant board games for their guests to play at their reception.

“We play a lot of video games, apps and board games (and love the Circus Circus arcade!) so we themed our wedding around this”, said the bride “We made the invites and order of service ourselves as well as our wedding website, all with a gaming theme, which we’re pretty proud of.”

They also wanted the entire wedding to be vegan – all the food and drink but also Claire’s dress, which was from Lucy Can’t Dance, and shoes. They also used felt flowers instead of real ones which not only looked great but they got to keep forever!
