Pretty Woman Inspired Shoreditch Elopement

I have a question – could Terriann and Brittany BE any cuter?! “We met 12 years ago,” they told us, “when we were young, wild and free on Birmingham’s gay scene. We went on one date but our lives took us on very different paths. Little did we know that we would meet again and oh what a meet it would be! It was love at first sight, we both never knew what love was until we found each other again. We had a lockdown date that turned into being locked down together indefinitely.”

They decided they wanted an intimate elopement so that the whole day was for them and no-one else. They wanted something cool and wild, where their love was the star of the show. “We were inspired by the line ‘Wild women do and they don’t regret it,’ from the Pretty Woman Soundtrack by Robby Cool, The Angel Singers. We didn’t have a plan for the day, letting love and excitement lead the way. From heart shaped glasses, posing in the streets, stopping traffic so our boots could do the walking to smoke grenades in the back streets of Shoreditch, surrounded by graffiti and sunshine.”

Gothic Geek Wedding with Skulls, Tequila & a Donnie Darko ‘Frank’ Mask

Abby and Jack’s April wedding was influenced by their love of skulls, tequila, music and their favourite films and TV shows – ‘gothic geek’ is how they described it to their friends.

They incorporated Lord of the Rings and Nightmare before Christmas into their vows and had a Star Wars cantina band on loop for 10+ minutes while they signed the register. The newly married couple walked back up the aisle too Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, the perfect upbeat song to to get the celebrations underway, and of course they had some great tunes playing during the wedding breakfast, too.

“We wanted the day to reflect us and to not be a completely traditional wedding”, Abby told us. “I was on Pinterest a lot and took bits that I liked to make our own. We’re not the most imaginative couple, but I like to think that we did ourselves proud. We did keep some traditional things though; I wore white (despite friends guesses that I’d be in black or purple!) and we still had the speeches and first dance.”

Spontaneous + Rugged Glencoe Covid Elopement

With how much grief and sadness the COVID pandemic caused, it’s lovely to hear the light points shining out from it – Kristin and Dewan actually met because of international borders shutting down. had been working as a university professor in Kabul, Afghanistan, and she was meant to be traveling to a conference in the US via London on 12 March 2020. Instead, international borders started shutting down and she stayed in London. Two days later, she was told that she couldn’t return to Afghanistan as her university compound was going into quarantine. She stayed in England and met Dewan, who is a Londoner, a couple of weeks later. They had both been in successful rock bands in their early twenties, so they bonded over their similar life experiences.

“The reality of planning our wedding was that most of what we did was determined by the practicalities of the pandemic,” Kristin told us. “Being an American working in Belgium during a time when most borders and registry offies and consular services were shut made for tricky international marriage planning. We had to find a place where we could get married, legally, to start with. It was impossible in England due to COVID, but possible in Scotland.” Due to their families being overseas, they figured if it was just the two of them they may as well elope to somewhere spectacularly beautiful, and settled on the Scottish highlands. And then they could think about what they actually wanted the wedding to be like.

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.
