Season of the Witch: A Budget-Friendly, Strange & Unusual Halloween Themed Wedding

Growing up in a small, conservative bible-belt town, Erica was always looked at as ‘a bit odd’. “I’ve always loved things spooky,” she told us. “Ever since I was a girl. my tastes gravitated away from the ‘norm’. This wedding was announcing my pride in being different.” Erica met Kenny online over a decade ago, and he has supported her in her difference and choices 100% ever since. 

With a budget of $3,000, the couple pulled out all the stops to bring Erica’s spooky dreams to life. They covered their ceremony area in spider webs, spiders, bats, rats and fake bones. String lights and electric candles lined the aisle, and they made pool noodles to make three-tier candles, while a friend carved pumpkins. Erica knew she wanted to use items that they could take home so they could reuse them and they wouldn’t go to waste.

Red, Yellow & Blue Cardiff Covid Wedding

Like a lot of couples, Helen and Jordan’s original June 2021 wedding plans fell through due to the pandemic. While they’ve pushed their big humanist celebration back to 2022, they kept their original register office date and decided to still make an occasion of it, but just do something small, quirky and meaningful and not worry too much about traditions. “I’ve never really wanted a wedding that was super traditional anyway,” Helen told us,” so planning this small ceremony and just doing it the way we wanted was a very freeing experience.”

The couple spent less than £5,000 on their day, and adopted a colour scheme of red, yellow and blue, as Helen is a lover of bright colours and knew she wanted to wear a red dress! She chose a 1950s vintage style dress from British Retro, with shoes by Wedding Converse and decided to make her own bouquet out of paper. Jordan sported a matching buttonhole in the yellow and blue hues, and their guests were invited to take the colour scheme on board for their own attire and run with it, if they so wished.

A Simple & Natural Lake Treehouse Wedding

Amanda and Heather describe themselves as simple, down to earth folk. they both wanted to be at the beach or in a forest-like setting for their March wedding day – somewhere out of the city and away from the hustle and bustle of life. They found the perfect venue in Secrets on the Lake in Queensland, Australia, and based the rest of the day around there!

In terms of theme, again they wanted to keep things simple and be inspired by their surroundings, incorporating their favourite colour into their flowers, suits, table arrangement and sand ceremony.

A Collision of Galaxies: Celestial Glam meets Bowie Inspired Wedding

Tom and Geneva have a metaphor for their relationship: ‘a collision of galaxies’. “We swirled around each other our whole lives,” the bride told us. “He played at the venue I stage managed and we had all the same friends, yet we don’t recall meeting until the time was right years later. Once our gravitational forces took over, we were inseparable; we started dating while I was working SXSW festival, which was crazy because I worked hours like 9am-2am that week, but I still wanted to see him after!”

They played up the star theme as much as they could for their July wedding day; from Geneva’s veil to her earrings, the stationery and the signage down to the ray guns for their grand exit photos. She knew she didn’t want a white wedding, either, so used blue a lot instead.

Effortless, Chic & Romantic Las Vegas Desert Wedding

Together with 20 of their closest family and friends, Claudia and Maxime finally tied the knot in May of this year in an intimate elopement in the middle of the Las Vegas desert. “We met while I was studying in France,” Claudia told us, “so the best thing about getting married was finally getting to be together after spending so long in a long distance relationship!”

The bride’s sister is a florist, so they had a jumpstart on planning the proceedings. “I’ve always envisioned a desert elopement-style wedding after seeing some of the amazing ones by sister works on for her business Flora Pop.” Of course she provided Claudia’s bouquet for the occasion, and sister also officiated proceedings too.

Mountain Elopement with a Sunrise Hike, a Sunset Picnic & A Skateboarding Groom!

An elopement, just like a wedding, can be anything you want it to be. You may think that if you’re eloping it’s go to be all about doing things quickly and without fuss, but that doesn’t have to be the case… As today’s wedding proves!

Niky and Vlad, who were married in July in Montana, had a full day of celebrating – from before sunrise to after sunset. The kicked off by waking up before dawn and hiking up their favourite trail (in full wedding garb!) for their sunrise ceremony. Afterwards, they did photos, stopped off at a skate part for Vlad to show off his moves, had burgers for lunch and then went back up the mountain for a sunset picnic complete with cake and pizza!

“Our inspiration came from what we do on the weekends”, the bride explained. “We love hiking on a favourite trail, Vlad finding a skatepark wherever we go, good food and and low pressure. We just wanted to do what we wanted. It felt like a vacation all
day, it was so easy.”
