A Crazy Colourful Wedding with a Leopard Print & Dinosaur Cake

Shell and Mark celebrated their wedding on 5th June and while they had a lot of friends and family that couldn’t be there, they still wanted to go all out and have the colourful wedding of their dreams for their ten guests. As a glamping blogger, and using Rock n Roll Bride as their main source of inspiration, Shell’s vision was for a camping meets colourful party at Glamping Thorpe in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The bride made all the décor and centrepieces, she customised the wedding favours and collected vintage coloured vases. She made close to 100 multi coloured and leopard print pom poms which were used in the wedding arch. Little Cherry Cake Company made their incredible cake, but the dinosaur cake topper was DIY too.

An Intimate Festive Meets Tropical Elopement in Atlanta

It’s September which means it’s now perfectly acceptable to talk about Christmas, right!? If you are planning your own festive wedding this year then read on because Katrina and Aerion’s 2020 celebration is a masterclass in how a small Christmas celebration can be just as beautiful and special as one with all the trimmings!

Spending “as little as possible”, the couple planned their elopement with one goal in mind – to be married by the end of it! They explain, “We met when we were both out separately with friends at the only lesbian bar in Atlanta. Katrina had just been through a break up, saw Aerion from across the room, sent her friend away to get a drink and seized the opportunity then to approach her while she was dancing. We ended up dancing all night together.”

Whimsical & Decadent Haunted Forest Wedding

A children’s farm doesn’t seem like your typical wedding venue, but when you bring on the creative genius of Michael Strownix to style the whole thing up, it became the perfect place for Caitlin and Adrian’s April wedding day. “Our friend works at the farm,” the bride told us, “and it’s a place that both of us had spent a lot of happy time. The balance of stunning natural beauty, rustic appeal and just a touch of absurdity with goats and peacocks wandering round appealed to us, too.”

“While we didn’t have a particularly theme in mind,” she continued, “someone described it as ‘like an old book shop in a haunted forest’ which I think just about sums it up. We just tried to inject little bits of ourselves and own own taste into things to make it feel a bit more personal to us. It was unashamedly whimsical and a bit silly, but with just enough tradition and sincerity to give it some gravity.”

A Casual Island Adventure Elopement with a Black Dress

Ben and Paige knew they wanted to go somewhere tropical for their March wedding, but aren’t really beach-wedding types. “We do enjoy hiking though, “ the bride told us, “so we settled on a trip to St John in the Virgin Islands as we knew we’d get what we wanted from there. We reached out to Island Mike and asked if he knew any cool trails that would take us somewhere beautiful and remote, and he delivered!”

As both Paige and Ben have been married before, they knew that they wanted their wedding to be true to them and nobody else. “We planned it together and made sure every decision was a reflection on who we are as a couple.”

Italian Boho Chic Elopement

Francesco and Gaia took inspiration for their April elopement from a working trip to Australia that they had taken together previously. “We used to live on a farm,” the bride told us, “very close to horses and sheep, surrounded by nature. We loved this kind of environment, so we a chose a country-style wedding.”

Held at Masseria Spinazzo in Salerno, Italy, the couple chose to elope after COVID limitations put stop to their original plans. Their biggest expense was Gaia’s wedding dress as she wanted a ‘perfectly bucolic outfit’; she settled on a gown from Le Spose di Giulio Gaudiosi.

Vegas or Bust: a COVID Elopement with a Vintage Sequin Jumpsuit

Emily and Casey decided just 5 days before heading to Las Vegas that they were going to tie the knot! “We had originally planned a much larger celebration with friends in Mexico,” the bride told us, “but that got postponed and we didn’t want to wait to get married. We’ll still have the big party next year, but I’m so glad we did what we did.”

They hired Gaby J Photography to document the occasion, and as a wedding photographer herself, Emily was particularly enamoured that Gaby only shot on film. “It really made every photograph so much more special to us.”
