Kerry and Dan didn’t have a pre-determined theme, they just wanted to include little bits of everything they love. Little nods to lots of different elements came together to produce a wedding that felt totally ‘them’. From the Star Wars posters as table markers, to the homemade cake, DIY flowers and all the decor that they did entirely themselves. They were massively inspired by the weddings featured on Rock n Roll Bride and of course, good old Pinterest.
“The colours were initially going to be white and copper/rose gold”, began the bride, “however the bridesmaid dresses everyone fell in love with were navy and we had Star Wars posters that were in completely different bold colours so we scrapped the strict colour scheme in the end! We’ve been together so long we just wanted it to be fun and relaxed for everyone including us.”
With a gorgeous (but demanding) 15 month old daughter together, Jen and Pip needed their wedding to be relaxed, informal, and to fit in with their busy lives. With a £12,000 budget, they eschewed any traditions that didn’t suit them, and planned a day that was informal and fun for everyone.
They tied the knot at Lambeth Town Hall in Brixton with close family and friends present, after travelling to the ceremony together in a black London cab. “To be honest, it was quite rough and ready,” laughed Jen, “which we didn’t really mind but it was quite funny! During the ceremony, the registrar rattled through the her script at such lightning speed, she didn’t pause for breath so our friend could read the poem he’d spent the a whole month preparing!”
Mary and Benton chose a Beatles themed wedding because, well, who doesn’t love the Beatles?! They are both graphic designers by trade, so details are super important to them. They went to town with thinking of all the little touches they could make for their Beatlemania themed wedding; they designed all their own stationery – from their concert style invites to their Yellow Submarine themed orders of service, record style save the dates (complete with personalised album covers!) and ticket stump style RSVPs.
They had Beatles artwork for table names, and band member figurines for cake toppers. They decorated their reception venue with more Beatles cover artwork, and even brought Abbey Road to Minnesota by printing a giant poster to use as a photo booth backdrop. Instead of traditional wedding cake, they chose strawberry cheesecake. They used the colour yellow throughout – shoes, ties and flowers, which is a great way of keeping it on theme but doing so as a subtle nod.
It was super important to Drew and Emma to ensure that their wedding day reflected both their personalities, and that it was an explosion of colour! So they mashed together elements from their favourite superhero movies and comics and their love of bright and unusual flowers to create a day that was unashamedly them.
Emma wore a David Tutera x Mon Cheri dress with Irregular Choice shoes, and the bridesmaids wore Lindybop dresses with different coloured petticoats. The gents wore buttonholes made out of comic book flowers, and superhero tie pins. The mother of the groom even got involved with the theme and wore a Captain America themed fascinator!
It may be averaging 30 °C outside at the moment, but autumn is coming soon my friends! Don’t get me wrong, I adore the summer, but it’s around this time of year where I also begin to hanker after knitted sweaters, bonfires and all the white hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows please and thank you).
If you’ve been feeling the same then you’re going to love gazing longingly over Brittney and Trav’s Pennsylvania wedding. Using autumnal colours in their flowers and the bridal party attire, and even having fresh donuts made by grandma for dessert, there’s SO much to love in this early November wedding.
“Our theme was boho glam”, explained the bride. Our inspiration was wanting to reflect our very own personalities and styles. All of the details were us to a T! It all started with my stunning bouquet of flowers. We had the groomsmen in the most amazing burgundy coloured suits. It’s uncommon for the men to be the more extreme ones in their attire choices, but these guys went all out!”
The ceremony was officiated by Drena, a family friend. Brittany wrote the entire script herself, wanting to make it as personal as possible. “Our ceremony was not traditional at all. It was short and sweet and to the point. It expressed our love perfectly.”
Hungarian couple Reni and Ati moved to the UK nearly three years ago, but there was no question that they would return home for their nuptials – despite the difficulties that planning a wedding abroad can bring!
Their big day was held at a hunting lodge – specifically chosen for it’s location amongst the pine tree forest. The couple have a love of the outdoors, and pine tree forests especial. The bride explains, “We love the spooky, weird darkness that under a pine tree forest brings – the beautiful green/blue-ish light they case and and mysterious, dreamy vibes. We started out wedding planning with this one criteria in mind and the rest fell into place after!”
