Dark & Moody Phantom of the Opera Inspired Wedding

Every couple has their thing, right? For Heather and Micah, their thing is Phantom of the Opera. They went to a show together early on in their courtship, and it has been a shared love of theirs ever since. So naturally their wedding was a Phantom-fest, hosted on Halloween weekend.

The bridesmaids carried lanterns in lieu of bouquets, the guests sported glitter and feathers, and every single person wore a masquerade mask. Heather walked down the aisle to the Phantom theme, and Micah’s brother officiated the non-traditional fantasy-inspired service. Instead of a first dance, the newlyweds sang Phantom’s “All I Ask Of You.”

A Country Meets Rock n Roll Wedding in Western Australia

After postponing their wedding twice due to border closures in Western Australia, Stef and Ryan finally managed to tie the knot in October. They wanted a laid back, county meet rock ‘n’ roll inspired day and chose Moore and Moore Café in Fremantle as their venue. They wanted to incorporate the the feeling of having a big barn dance where everyone was welcome.

“We had the full rock ‘n’ roll vibes with cowboy boots, whiskey shots at the bar and neon lights but with a country barn vibe”, the bride told us. “One of the groomsmen sang me down the aisle with one of my favourite songs. Our daughter was overwhelmed by all the people so, in the middle of the ceremony, everyone joined us in singing Baby Shark!”

A Jailhouse Rock Elopement in Melbourne

Corey and Brandon, from Melbourne, absolutely did not want a big, expensive wedding. Instead, they spent less than $5k (AU) to elope at The Altar Electric, a wedding chapel in their hometown. The venue provided all the décor and the Elvis officiant – they simply hired their photographer, found outfits and showed up!

Corey rocked a short sequin dress from Zara with Vans and a denim jacket (to which she added the patches herself), while Brandon was in jeans and also a DIY denim jacket.

“We were originally going to elope in Vegas but couldn’t because of COVID restrictions,” they told us, “so wanted to do something as close as possible to that. We wanted the day to represent us. We wanted it to be fun. We weren’t trying to be different just wanted it to be us.”

Jewel Toned Wedding on Halloween with Celestial Touches

Inspired by their love of Halloween, Harry Potter and autumn weather, Ellie and Luke spent around £10,000 on their October wedding. They handmade a lot of the elements themselves, from gifts for the bridesmaids to the groomsmen’s ties as well as props and decorations. 

Held at De Vere Horsley Estate in Surrey, the day was styled by The Fairy Godmother of Weddings – aka, Ellie’s mum, who also took care of all the florals for their day. They tasked celebrant Jenny Knight with crafting a truly personal ceremony, and catering was provided by the venue, which was their biggest expense.

Relaxed Rustic Wedding inspired by a Welsh Copper Mine

Kirrie and Siôn took inspiration from the stunning colours of an old copper mine, Parys Mountain on Anglesey, for their day. They had their bridesmaids and groomsmen choose their own outfits based on the colours from said mountain – resulting in a lovely mix of pink, copper, burnt orange, green, burgundy, silver, blue and black.

The couple didn’t want too much fuss and veered away from tradition, with Kirrie planning pink hair for the day, a black wedding cake and no top table, opting to sit with their bridesmaids and groomsmen instead.

The groom also ensured he acknowledged all the important women in his life, telling us, “During my groom’s speech I took the opportunity to thank all the significant women in my life starting from aunties and ending, of course, with my wife. I got them all to stand up when I called their name and asked everyone to applaud their influence on my life.”

Scottish Highlands Meet Devon Beaches in an Autumnal Micro-Wedding

Remember the autumn of 2020? Where weddings were tiny and life was so uncertain? Martyn and Emma chose to still go for it, planning a micro-wedding of 12 people when they married that October.

Emma explained, “The pandemic meant doing things differently! I bought my dress online and altered it myself – the same for Martyn’s jacket and waistcoat. Everything was done over Zoom and we really made the most of our guests’ talents. They created the cake and decorations and provided the music.”

With Martyn hailing from Scotland and Emma from Devon, they fused the two to create a relaxed wedding in a dramatic landscape. “We used the landscape and the time of year as our inspiration”, Emma told us. “Scottish autumn is stunning and a little spooky so we had a light nod to Halloween! Getting to wander about in the stunning landscape in all our finery was one of our favourite parts of the wedding.”
